“Great B&B”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

This B&B was the best one we stayed at during our our 25 day trip. Location, home and food were excellent. The Inn Keepers brought it all together. The Inn Keepers went above and beyond to assure a great time in Asheville. Our overall experience will bring us back to Ashville and this B&B.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Saw several, they all were great.

This was an amazing Bed and Breakfast. James and Susan took care of all our needs for our beautiful wedding. The room was very romantic. They made us feel as we were special guests in their home. Susan decorated the room, where our vows took place, with specialty cut Dogwood. We were suppose to be married in the garden, but it was raining and windy so she brought part of the garden indoors. James and Susan arranged everything for us from the officiant, to the photographer, to making our wedding cake. We even booked the same room next year for our first anniversary.

We have never had a B&B experience even close to this one. We felt as if we were staying in a five star boutique hotel. At the same time, we felt as if we were special guests in James and Susan's home. Their hospitality, food, helpfulness and graciousness were outstanding. The location was perfect for us, easy walk to downtown and easy access for driving to other parts of Asheville.
We received great tips from James and Susan before our arrival and during our stay which really made our experience more enjoyable. We especially appreciated the cleanliness of the room and the amenities. They really went above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. If there were an equivalent to a James Beard Award for B&B's, they would be a cinch for it.

Room Tip: Their website has very helpful pictures and descriptions of the rooms.

This is simply the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. Their hospitality is outstanding. James and Susan really look after their guests. We stayed in the Cottage with our children. James has many useful tips about Asheville. This is our second visit to Carolina B&B, and we look forward to coming again!

I found Carolina Bed & Breakfast from an online search. Their website intrigued me so much I immediately decided that this was where I wanted to stay. When I arrived I was really impressed with the ambience, jazz playing in the background along with wine and hors d'oeuvres every evening. My room was just as it was on the internet; it was very clean and the best parts about the room was the fireplace and claw foot tub. Every morning I was awakened to an aroma of coffee and an amazing breakfast which came with freshly squeezed orange juice. My weekend of relaxation was a success and after being so spoiled, it was hard to face reality when I returned home. James and Susan are very friendly and amazing hosts and I bragged about their hospitality to everyone that would listen. I know there are other Bed & Breakfasts in Asheville but I only recommend Carolina Bed & Breakfast and will only stay there when I return.

After much research we selected Carolina B&B for our Spring Break Getaway to the Asheville area. The house was conveniently located. The room included a very comfortable king size bed, gas fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower. Each evening included a social hour with complimentary Biltmore wines. The best part of the package is the owners, James and Susan. James is quite knowledgeable of the area and provided excellent suggestions for activities (hiking at Dupont to see Triple Falls, hiking John Rock at Pisgah, discount tickets to tour the Biltmore Estate) and the local restaurants (Nine Mile and Luella's). Susan is an exceptional cook. You will not find a better breakfast in Asheville, maybe in all of North Carolina. Everything is made from scratch in her kitchen with the freshest local ingredients. James is lucky to have married her as I am sure that is the only way he could afford to keep her on staff.
