The first impression upon walking in to the Carolina B&B is one of warmth and welcome. The house is delightfully decorated with items that are representative of reflect the history of the building as well as places where Susan and David have lived.
This first impression is confirmed as you experience that small touches that make all the difference: a comfortable and spacious room, finding cookies on the dresser, "help yourself" soda and water in the refrigerator near the kitchen, outstanding breakfasts in the dining room, "cocktail hour" nibbles in one of the front rooms and so on.
Sara was our housekeeper and host. She was marvellous; helpful with information etc. when needed but unobstrusive at the same time.
The "must stay connected" will appreciate the wireless internet access throughout the house.
Downtown Asheville is a pleasant 15 to 20 minute walk away through a residential area.
We will definitely stay at the Carolina B&B again and have already recommended it to friends.
