“cottage charm with big hotel luxury”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

This was our second stay at the Cedar Crest Inn - this time in the carriage house. The room was beautiful and provided all the desired amenities; the living area and deck/pergola allowed for comfortable socializing; the kitchen provided extra convenience. The inclusive breakfasts are elegantly served in the dining room or on the covered porch and include a fruit dish, muffin, and entrée - all delicious! Baked goods are available for snacking throughout the day. This is such a wonderful alternative to the noisy, crowded, and impersonal hotels used by most of the tennis tournament participants (and used by us in the past). The friendly, but not intrusive, staff alone makes this a wonderful place to stay. Did I mention what a charming Victorian home this is?

Room Tip: The carriage house has 3 private rooms, each with a private bath, plus ample entertaining space, a k...

My girlfriend and I search high and low for a BB with room with 2 beds or 2 adjoining rooms; hard to find in a BB. Stayed at Cedar Crest in carriage house on 2nd floor....2 bedrooms with shared bath; perfect for us. For most of our 7 nights we had the whole carriage house (living room, dining, full kitchen, deck) to ourselves; only 2 nights were main floor 2 bedrooms occupied. The main house is historically interesting and the free wine in the evening was lovely while rocking on the porch (a few crackers/cheeses would have been nice addition). Breakfasts, while adequate, were uninspired: fruit, sweet muffin, egg dish. I would have liked the option and variety of helping myself to some cereal, toast,cheeses, etc. While CC in a good location (close to Biltmore, Blue Ridge Parkway, and 5 minutes drive to downtown Asheville), sadly CC is also on a very busy noisy road, 2 blocks from railway (yes, that engine's horn was like clockwork!) and a huge medical complex: sirens and helicopters. That it was spring and we had the windows open made these noises bothersome; if you are there in winter or summer with windows closed and AC on, you might not have a problem. Really not walking distance to anything but Biltmore Village. See separate review on that. You are within walking distance of very nice restaurant: Rezaz; see separate review on that as well. Notable: hostess Sabrina= a dear and accomodating hostess! I don't think I'd go back here.......I'd try harder to find a place in the historic Montford district where we went one day for a neighborhood festival.

Room Tip: Get room not facing busy noisy Biltmore Ave.

We had a wonderful stay @ Cedar Crest Inn. The three course breakfast was filling & satisfying. Our room was the page room #7. The details were just stunning and the personal touches were a plus. We will be back in the winter for the Christmas @ the Biltmore.

My husband and I spent several nights at this Bed & Breakfast. It was very quiet and relaxing for us. The house is furnished with beautiful antiques. Very close to downtown Asheville. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast and they were mindful of dietary preferences. We highly recommend this location if you are looking for a peaceful and tranquil getaway. The beverages and snacks were a nice touch.

Room Tip: The Page Room was on the third floor. There is no elevator so keep this in mind when making a reserv...

This was our 5th visit to Cedar Crest Inn & each visit is better than the last. Sarah did a super job as hostess. A great addition to a great place to stay. Cedar Crest is centrally located - less than 5 minutes to downtown and less than 5 minutes to Biltmore Estate. Rooms are beautiful, relaxing, & quiet, Every breakfast is to die for. If you are visiting Asheville, you must stay at Cedar Crest!!

My husband & I celebrated our 24th anniversary with four nights in this beautiful pink mansion; it was everything I had had hoped for and more! We booked the Serenity Suite and it was perfect. We loved our private patio!! The breakfast is not a buffet, but it was delicious and filling each and every morning. A special thanks to Sabrina for taking our picture under the trees outside of our room; we will treasure these photos along with the memories we made in Asheville.

Excellent! I came here by chance, but this turned out to be a great experience. Cedar Crest was affordable, clean and conveniently located. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I look forward to coming back, and spending another relaxing weekend with my friends and family!
