Black Mountain, North Carolina

If you like bed-and-breakfast, this is your place. Clean and comfortable. Dated, but then that's the point. Not old-and-gross, just old. The food is very good. The porch does have rockers, and the neighborhood is walkable. Just one block from Lake Tomahawk. A block in another direction is the downtown area with shopping, art, museums and more restaurants.

Hi, and thanks for taking time to write a review for future travelers. We're glad to hear you think that this would be a great place to stay. We're proud of the 1896 heritage of our B&B and work hard to keep it clean and comfortable and yet period-appropriate. We do have a great location and I'll also point out...

Invent your own romantic story about who Elizabeth was (or, ask the friendly innkeeper) and take time to stay in this beautiful and cozy suite. We were there at Christmastime and enjoyed the Christmas tree, the fireplace, the huge tub and room-sized shower. Plus a fabulous breakfast. We will be back!

We appreciate your nice review! You're right, Christmas is extra-special in the Elizabeth's Attic because you have your own Christmas tree by the fireplace. P.S. We think Elizabeth was a cat, but the only thing left of her is her name!

This B&B was a great stay! Our hosts were really friendly and very accommodating. Room was clean. One thing I really liked was the soaps and lotions they use. They smelled really good. The house itself was great, with fireplaces in the common rooms. Breakfast was excellent! The inn also has a restaurant, and we ate supper there. The food...

Hi Kim, thanks for a great review! In case anyone wants to know, we provide amenities from Gilchrist and Soames; their English Spa collection. Thanks again, and we'll see you next time you visit.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend with a group of about 20, so I didn't personally choose this B and B.

Well, this is an interesting review. We're sorry that you feel that we were "less than friendly and ... overwhelmed". Actually, we knew the group of about 20 would be arriving all together and we were organized and well prepared to check you in with additional staff on hand. We feel that we checked in and escorted everyone to their...

We had a wonderful time staying at the Red Rocker Inn. The owners were so friendly and the food was amazing. Breakfast and dinner are both offered at the inn. If you want to enjoy a unique town, good food and fabulous accommodations this is your spot.

Rooms were fine, but no television so we watched Netflix on the computer screen. Baths were dated, but it was clean. Owner wasn't very friendly. Staff was good. Breakfast was worth waking up to. We had a hard time going to sleep with the noise above our heads. So we left the computer on so we could sleep. Would go...

Hello Suzanne, Thanks for the review. As we mention so many times, Please let a hotel or B&B or restaurant or what ever you are reviewing know that you have concerns while you are on the property so an issue can be resolved. I'm not sure, but maybe you were in the Savannah room? Can't imagine what noise you heard...

We stayed in Elizabeth's Attic, which was a comfortable option. It was, however, a bit overpriced. We were greeted first thing with a "no television in the room" speech, which was a surprise. I didn't know there was a hotel/B&B in the U.S. without televisions in the rooms (except remotely located ones), but sure enough, there wasn't one in the...

Hi Julie, thanks for taking time to write a review. It sounds like you had a nice time except for the TV so I'll comment on that a bit. The reason we don't have TV in the rooms is because this is a house and we don't want our guests to hear someone else's television. However, there is a TV...

We actually stayed in the 'Anniversary Room' of this lovely historic home. Beautifully and comfortably decorated with period antiques...The staff and owners make one feel right at home with all day beverages, cookies in the afternoon and a breakfast that is second to none! I give Red Rocker Inn a very enthusiastic endorsement after a magical weekend!

Having enjoyed eating at the Inn for years I finally spent one night there. The room was upstairs on the back of the Inn. The room was small with a bed that was barely comfortable. The cushioned chair was downright uncomfortable. The cushion had lost all comfort a decade ago, and other straight back cushioned seat chairs in the Inn...

Hi PineBell, Good to hear from you. Sounds like you had a few concerns while you were here. Sorry you weren't comfortable in your bed. Bed comfort is a funny thing, as you know since each individual has their preferences and you may have been expecting something different.
