James & Susan run a first class establishment. My mom, sis, daughter and I shared 'The Cottage" and it was perfect. Cozy, comforting, with a small kitchenette - it was lovely! Happy hour was a highlight of the day (we hurried back not to miss it) with hot appetizers, cold drinks and warm conversation. In the evening we were delighted to find a surpise sweet - one night lemon squares, the next homemade whoopie pies!! Breakfast was unbelievable - pannacotta with strawberry coulis followed by a waffle one day and an incredible quiche the next. I didn't want to leave. James has great knowledge of Asheville and don't miss Zambra's for tapas (be sure to make a reservation). Great location right north of downtown Asheville with plenty of parking. The Carolina Bed & Breakfast was more than we could have imagined.
