This was our second trip to Asheville. Last trip we stayed at the Grove Park Inn. This time we want a different experience. The Black Walnut B&B is wonderful! It is a Select Registry property, located in historic Montford District. We stayed 2 nights and will definitely stay there again our next trip. The property is excellent. The house has... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Black Walnut B&B. I booked a room for two days last minute and it exceeded our expectations. The staff were warm and welcoming, the room was gorgeous, appetizers and drinks a delight, and breakfast exceptional. We visited two local restaurants (within 2 block walking distance) where the food was absolutely terrific. No getting... More

My husband and I spent one night at the Black Walnut Inn on a recent trip to Asheville. The house itself is beautifully restored and furnished, and the wide front porch is to die for! We spent some very relaxing time there in their rocking chairs. We stayed in the Holly room which had the most comfortable bed I have... More

It is obvious the passion that Peter and Lori have for their B&B. Every item has their personal touch from conversation to breakfast to the design. My husband and I stayed in the Dogwood, which was such an interesting, charming room with 3 separate sections: the bedroom, the bathroom, and a small sitting room. The breakfasts were yummy and substantial,... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Black Walnut B&B Inn. Peter, Lori, Linda, and Beth were warm, accommodating, and knowledgeable hosts. The owners, Peter and Lori, are very involved in the running of the B&B and are delightful to talk to; both are terrific story tellers and have a great sense of humor. Peter's advice on things to do... More

Exquisitely decorated, stately but welcoming building, lovingly attented garden/property, and most of all: fantastic spoiling attention from Peter - the master story teller, Linda - so welcoming, she's like instant family - and Lori with her sharp sense of humor. The three of them double as serious kitchen stars, so enjoy their breakfasts and evening snacks.

Peter, Lori and Linda are wonderful innkeepers. The location is ideal. It is walk-able to downtown, and there are neighborhood restaurants within a couple blocks of the inn. The property itself is beautiful, the amenities are first rate. Breakfast is amazing, and the afternoon tea is delightful. Supposedly this is one of the Top 10 B&B's in the country, and... More

WOW! Our stay was wonderful. The afternoon tea was stupendous, the choice of four wines and the many hors d'oeuvres were quite delicious, the second night others were so ravenous there wasn't even enough for a second round. Our stay was in the Magnolia Room, very private and quite luxurious. The sheets were some of the softest we had ever... More

This will be our #1 choice when next staying in Asheville. Peter's wit and Lori's attentiveness were very much appreciated. The rooms were very well appointed and tastefully decorated. Convenient to all restaurants and downtown. Quick on/off 26. Most important, we were received graciously. Those of us who have stayed at B&B's know this is not always the case. But... More
