The Red Rocker in is the Jewel of Black Mountain, NC. A quaint, relaxing adorable Bed and Breakfast. Friendly and welcoming the staff makes you feel at home from the moment you walk in. Extremely clean and inviting rooms, dining areas and porches are just what weary travelers need. The food is exceptional as well as the service. Definitely worth...

My husband and I arrived at Red Rocker Inn on one of the coldest days of the seasons. The Inn had the fireplaces going and the rooms were nice and cozy. The owners were extremely friendly and allowed me to explore the B and B. The Inn has 17 rooms. We stayed in the only King room (music) on the...

We highly recommend a visit to the Red Rocker Inn. We enjoyed a delicious dinner as well as breakfast at the inn. Both meals were superb with melt in your mouth biscuits, outstanding entrees, and out of this world desserts with dinner.

The rooms in the house were perfect, as was the restaurant. I loved the wood floors and the old- timey claw foot bathtub. The weatherwas quite dreary and rainy, but my daughter found a cozy nook to curl into and read her book. It was such a relief to be able to walk downstairs and have the most amazingly fabulous...

We stayed at the Red Rocker Inn on our most recent trip to the Asheville, NC, area. It is a very pretty, homey place. The proprietors made us feel right at home. They have a restaurant, too. Which is worth visiting, the food is delicious. Our breakfast was buffet style and it was wonderful. Everything I tried, I liked. Best...

However, if you like lovely small mountain towns, well tended older homes, and kind, gentle folks who offer a blessing before serving a wonderful breakfast, this may be your place. Warning, there is only one ancient wooden console tv and it was never on. We will be back.

Room, people, parking, access, food was very good. Clean and inviting, spacious, no TV(good). Beautiful setting and leisure pace leads to a less hectic pace. The food for breakfast was ample and tasty. The dinner was really good.

Thank you for reviewing us, Skip. We do prefer a less-hectic pace here, so we're glad you felt it. And so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Just to mention to future guests, we do have one TV in the living room for your enjoyment. Thank you again !

This place was just wonderful. The breakfast was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in. Easy to walk downtown, too. When we next go to Asheville, we plan to spend the last night here.
