My wife and I stayed at the Black Walnut Inn earlier this month for three nights. A few adjectives to describe our stay include comfortable, clean, character, gourmet, friendly, helpful & relaxing. This particular inn has architectural connections to the Biltmore and although it was constructed more than 110 years ago, it has been completely restored/updated. We stayed in the Walnut Room. I would describe it as very comfortable and clean with plenty of character. For example, the fireplace in our room had some of the original tilework. Modern conveniences such as central air and ample hot water added to our comfort. The morning breakfast and early evening hors d' oeuvres were gourmet quality. The menu changed daily, which kept our taste buds wondering what was next. The host, hostess, & staff were friendly and helpful. We came to Asheville on a kids-free getaway to see the Biltmore, Blue Ridge mountains (driving & hiking), and visit the local restaurants/shops. The Innkeeper & staff provided us with specific tips and suggestions, as well as maps, and directions. For example, showing us the best place to park at the Biltmore to avoid the crowds or which trails to take with the most scenic waterfalls. After a day out, we would come back and find waiting for us: hors d'oeuvres & wine along with a relaxing time on the front porch. We also walked the surrounding neighborhood, which has an interesting historic flair in and of itself. All in all, The Black Walnut Inn met our expectations and is as good as, if not better than, any of the B&Bs we've visited in the past.
