Carolina Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #9 of 39 Asheville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 March 2011

This place is a gem. On a quiet street in a historic, charming neighborhood and close to the downtown (where you must try Limones restaurant). Everything seems to be thought of carefully: tasty little appetizers and Biltmore-estate wine served in the late afternoon, carefully prepared haute cuisine breakfast, comfortable beds and clean, well-appointed rooms. The owners are wonderful and helpful. I highly recommend this place!

The Carolina was a beautiful and comfortable place to stay but the friendly and attentive service is what made it so special. Susan made a marvelous breakfast with delicious and unique selections every morning. James was entertaining and his attention to detail was excellent. I haven't had such a great night sleep in a long time; the bed was so comfy. Thanks for the lovely stay.

A spontaneous trip to Asheville led us to the Carolina Bed and Breakfast. Based on the great reviews from tripadvisor, we decided to make a reservation less than 24hrs before our stay and it's safe to say that our spur of the moment decision was a good one. James and Susan were incredibly welcoming, the other guests were great to converse with over breakfast, and the food was fabulous. I should state that again, the food was fabulous. Included in the nightly rate is a gourmet breakfast every morning, appetizers with wine in the evenings, and a sweet dessert awaiting bedside when you arrive back to your room at night. The home and rooms were charming and immaculate. A great bed and breakfast experience!

A perfect place to stay in Asheville!!!!!! Carolina Bed & Breakfeast is by far the best B&B we have ever experienced. The breakfast each morning was awesome and the evening snack was an unexpected treat! Susan and James are the best. We hope to be back for a 2nd visit.

My wife wanted a romantic weekend for Valentines so I booked a room at Carolina B&B. She wasn't disappointed. Excellent breakfast with a fine room and accomodations and the owners couldn't have been nicer. We will probably do it again next year.

Where do I even begin! This was my first bed and breakfast experience, and now I think I will never go back to regular hotels. The location of the B&B was great- in the historic Montford district and within walking distance to the bus stop. The food was absolutely to die for. Each breakfast was a masterpiece with such unique touches, like cold peach soup and an amazingly light egg souffle. The owners mentioned they shopped at the local farmers market & it definitely showed! We stayed in the Gold Finch room and our bathroom was amazing with a soaking tub and separate luxurious shower. After check-in we were surprised to find a spread of hors d'oeurves and wine welcoming us before we went out for dinner. It included pancetta and cantaloupe skewers, chocolate covered almonds, and cheeses. This is offered nightly and is a great way to start your evening. We enjoyed talking with James about his travels and taking his recommendations for dinner while watching the sunset on the large front porch. Through the back door of the inn there is a terrace with grape vines and a zen garden with a fountain. When we thought this B&B couldn't get any better, James slipped printed directions under our door to the restaurant where we told him we had reservations.

My husband and I went to Asheville for the first time for a weekend getaway and we chose Carolina Bed and Breakfast because of the good reviews and the good price. The reviews were absolutely right: the place is charming, clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. The owners, James and Susan, really went out of their way to make us feel at home. The breakfasts were amazing and we really enjoyed the happy hour with appetizers and wine each evening. We stayed in the Miss Webb room which was the least expensive of all the rooms. It was plenty big and the bed was really comfortable. There were so many nice details at this B&B--like robes hanging in our closet to dessert waiting for us in our room each night. And the owners were also very helpful in pointing us where to go and what to do in Asheville. We had a great time at restaurants and at the Biltmore but I kept telling my husband, "I just want to go back to our B&B and relax!"
