“Great B&B in Asheville”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This is a great place to stay when visiting Asheville. We had the beautiful Garden Vista room on the second floor. Great view of the garden, beautiful furnishings, lots of light. Gary and Patti are great hosts and serve a wonderful breakfast. When we needed to leave early they also packed a nice take along breakfast for us. They were extremely helpful with things to do around town. Enjoy!

This family from D.C. found our inn and we are so happy to have been able to host them. Traveling with their college age young adults (a complete joy & a credit to their parents displaying a rare courtesy and respect not always seen anymore) while also supplying a fun and nostalgic view to an age grouping we left behind a long time ago. Nadine-Cliff, I'm tickled you all liked Garden Vista. The view of those back gardens and waterfalls is also one of my favorites and the natural light in that room is uplifting I agree. You all are welcomed back any time and I sincerely hope to host you and the Fam any time Asheville is on your agenda. Be well and have an awesome summertime. Give the young ones our best.

My husband booked 2 nights at the "At Cumberland Falls Bed and Breakfast" in Asheville, NC for our anniversary. Lovely home, beautiful gardens with koi fish pond and water features and six marvelous rooms. Gracious hosts Patti & Gary and the concierge Leah made our stay very comfortable.

Wonderful aromas each morning as the three course breakfast was being prepared. The three courses were warm muffins with juice & coffee, a fruit plate and a main breakfast entree. One morning we ate on the sun porch with another couple and the next morning we tried the main dining room. Breakfast was served at 9 AM and took about an hour. Our favorite dish was the sweet & spicy bacon and the apple stuffed French Croissant!

Our room "Day Dream" was on the 3rd floor in the back, so we could open our window at night to hear the water feature. Skylights, interesting nooks & crannies, whirlpool tub, gas fireplace, ceiling fan, hairdryer, queen bed with down comforter & pillows, wall-mounted TV, very good internet connection, bathrobe to use during our stay, soap, shampoo, ironing board & iron, fire escape ladder, off-street parking and a small kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker.

Fresh homemade cookie every afternoon, a pod coffee maker and a hot tea pot were available in the dining room and chocolates in the living room and on the landing of the 2nd floor.

Now, the quilted maple - much of the wood trim on the staircase and around the fireplace in the living room are done in the rare quilted maple. Have Gary tell the story!

Thanks Patti, Gary & Leah for making our anniversary weekend so special!

Room Tip: Very quiet residential neighborhood. Close to downtown Asheville, restaurants and about 15 minutes t...

We are so happy to see your review and know that your very special anniversary celebration was all that you hoped it would be. That was our mission statement for sure. The garden here at the inn is a special passion of mine and we know we've hit the mark when guests chose to spend some of their premium vacation time enjoying the "Koi welcoming committee" and the waterfall-garden area. Those crazy Koi have been so socialized by guests-they love them.

We spent 4 nights in Asheville this past April for spring break and chose At Cumberland Falls based on all the great reviews. We were happy to see that the reviews were right on. The location was perfect, right in the middle of the historic area and within easy walking distance of downtown. It is worth your time to do a nice stroll around the area and see the historic homes in the area. Gary and Patty have a stocked fridge (honor system) with cold drinks. There's access to coffee, tea or hot chocolate all day, and a great freshly baked treat every afternoon. I can't decide if I liked the lavender sugar cookies or the chocolate chip cookies best. Good filling breakfast. I learned the hard way to save my muffin for a late morning snack so I could save room for the next 2 courses! My favorites were the sweet/spicy bacon, the baked pears and every morning's surprise muffins. We stayed in the 2 attic rooms for 2 nights apiece. Both were very nice and had jacuzzi tubs, but I liked the Daydream better because you got a little kitchenette and a small nook where I sat, reading or working in the mornings. Also, just be aware that with the Sunshine Room, there isn't a closed off bathroom. Rather, there's a 3/4 wall that hides the toilet away. But all in all, a great experience.

You all were like having my own around. We so enjoyed you. I told you when I met you Sun that you were aptly named-a bright light. I am delighted you liked those Fairy Cakes. That 's the sugar cookie with the lavender. Those are a big favorite around here. We so appreciate that you took your time to write review and delighted that you view both us and our home in such esteem. You all are welcome back to our home anytime and will always be a welcome addition at the breakfast table. Meanwhile, I will be thinking up more surprise muffins for you and Steven.
Be well and have a safe, happy summertime!

We had an absolutely wonderful experience At Cumberland Falls! My husband and I stayed for two nights while on a mini-vacation to Asheville, and this Inn was exactly what we were looking for. It was beautiful and grand, yet also felt simple and peaceful. We loved spending some of our down time relaxing on the porch or by the pond reading. The food was AMAZING. Gary and Patti and their staff were fantastic hosts; they had thought of everything we might need. As soon as they heard we were hikers, they offered recommendations (and directions) to their favorite spot. They also offered awesome restaurant and drink recommendations. We look forward to going back again and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Daydream room, on the third floor. It was lovely, though not nearly as grand as th...

We are so happy for your kind words and delighted you felt well cared for and guided in both outdoor as well as culinary adventures during your stay with us . We love to be outdoors and whenever we have a chance, we are off to scope out some new Asheville wonder. We were so happy to be able to share some of that with you both seeing the same yearning for a grand outdoor experience in you two. Glad we hit the mark.
There are many more adventures to be had and also more amazing breakfasts so we look forward to seeing you all again. Richmond is only a bit away Cam and Kevin and the wonders of the forest are calling you back to Asheville....plus, just today I created a fantastic Pear/Apple Walnut confection that I am sure would rock your world. Be well and have a great summertime!

We spent a lovely three night stay at this B&B. The breakfast everyday was wonderful as was the service and conversation. Our room on the 1st floor was cozy and quiet and access to downtown was very easy. Lots of recommendations were provided by the host and were much appreciated. We would definitely stay there again.

Patti and Gary have created an incredible B & B experience with their lovely comfortable home, beautiful gardens, gourmet breakfasts, and their wonderful hospitality. My husband and I spent three nights in this B & B and our only regret was having to move on in our travels. Patti and Gary not only provided us with an exquisite place to stay, but also helped us plan our time in Asheville with helpful suggestions, maps, and reservations. They have truly mastered the art of running an outstanding B & B!

We are so happy you all are back to St. Louis safe, sound and all in one piece. We are so happy you had such a positive experience at our inn and we are grateful for your very kind assessment of your time at our home..
It was both easy and a delight to have you all in residence due in large part to your completely kind personalities and gracious courtesy. I would like to embrace you all as interim innkeepers as it is clear you love to have fun and enjoy people...both good qualities for our vacation pitch hitters. Please come back and see us any time at all you find yourselves heading to Asheville and for our part, we hope it won't be too long between visits. You both were a treat to host. Every innkeeper should be so lucky.

We stayed three nights and recommend this B&B to everyone. Three wonderful breakfasts; very comfortable room; comfortable bed: lovely grounds; great neighborhood; and pleasant and helpful innkeepers. Gary and Pattie treat their guests very well and are a wealth of information about the entire area. Mention you want to go and they provide written directions ASAP. All a very relaxing stay.

These lovely folks own The Laughing Lizard Bed & Breakfast in Tampa and we know, as innkeepers themselves, they are very "attentive to detail" kind of folks. We were honored by their selection of our property and very happy we were able to provide a stress free, easy and well cared for vacation -the kind they lovingly prepare for others. We are so tickled with their kind words and assessments regarding our inn and us personally. Being on vacation is largely about being taken care of nicely in a great environment and being able to find the points of interest in the city you are visiting easily. We love Asheville and love to help others cultivate this love too by sending them just where they want to go easily and with no stress sometimes associated with navigation of a new area. More impressively, we are so grateful that after returning to what I am sure was a very busy schedule after a few days away, they took the time to write this awesome review. We look forward to seeing them again.
