Great time at Cedar Crest Inn. Christina the manager was fabulous in checking us in, showing us around, and taking care of all our needs. She was friendly, personable, and accommodating. Great employee.

This place is not worth the cash. I stayed here years ago and it's upkeep has not been maintained. Stayed in carriage House and I had issues with heating and air system also there were no glasses in kitchen. Manager didn't know the difference between a tea cup and a glass. Had nine people staying and had eight sets of...

The Cedar Crest Inn is a beautiful 19th Century mansion. It is reasonably priced compared to other B&B's in Asheville; the furnishings are comfortable in the common areas & in both bedrooms where we have stayed; a quality 3-course breakfast is served each morning; & the Inn is in a very convenient location for going anywhere in the Asheville area....

We were warmly greeted by Kristina. This is our first time visiting a bed and breakfast. We were very impressed by this Inn and the warm coffee we were offered as soon as we entered. We had such a wonderful time that we are planning another trip back. Kristina was a wonderful hostess that we are thinking of staying another...

While it had it's own personality, I was not fond of this place. I had to ask the manager twice to replace a light bulb by our bedroom door. They lock the kitchen at 7 pm so if you need ice, you are out of luck. Also one cofee pot is left out if you want coffee before breakfast is...

Cabin was OK but poor lighting and very uncomfortable furniture. Main house is lovely but breakfast was only mediocre and took a very long time in serving! This is...

We came in a little early, and the manager Drew left a note on the front door, will be back shortly. No problem. Check in went pretty smooth, had our name down wrong, but got through it. Room was on the third floor, no problem. Room was perfect! Nice king bed, a.c. Got cold, all good. Only thing here was...

The Cedar Crest is within a short drive of downtown Asheville and also the Biltmore Estate. We had a nicely served and tasty breakfast all 3 days we were there. The interior woodwork is quite grand. Our room (#4 Brese) was quite large and comfortable with the exception of the bathroom which was quite, quite small. The inn is located...

Absolutely wonderful!! My husband and I stayed for our 5th anniversary this weekend and our stay was perfect. Breakfast is hardy and delicious and our room was great. We stayed in carriage house #3 and we had the entire 2nd level of the carriage house to ourselves! We can't wait to visit again!!
