It was easy to find the Inn with the direction we where given, right on Biltmore Ave. Close to the Biltmore Estate and some great restaurants in walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helped us with planing our stay in Ashville. The home made breakfast was outstanding the rooms very nicely furnished and very clean. We had tea... More

Just a couple of blocks from Biltmore Village, Biltmore House and I-40, as well as being just a 10 minute drive from downtown. I stayed in the “Carriage House” cabin off of the mains house, which offered a little more privacy than the main house, and allowed you more control over the temperature and audio systems. The main house has... More

I researched various B&Bs for our last-minute trip to Asheville for our anniversary. I booked the Carriage House room #3 the evening before we left for a 7-hour drive to Asheville. We left home at 5am, and it wasn't until almost noon before the innkeeper called us to tell us there was one "small hitch". It was that we had... More

The reviewer never had a confirmed reservation with us. They had submitted a reservation “request” which was never confirmed. We do requests only online to avoid exactly this. We reserve the right to refuse business to anyone. We do not permit young children under the age of 10 at our inn which is stated on our website. They are upset... More

We had hoped for a beautiful fall weekend in Asheville, but were there when Superstorm Sandy made her presence known. We did visit the Biltmore Estate but it was too cold for us to wander the town. The Inn proved a comfortable respite: blazing fire in the main room and a cozy fireplace in our bedroom (upgraded thanks to a... More

We stayed two nights at the Cedar Crest Inn. Very comfortable, authentic, great breakfast and wonderful innkeepers. The Inn's preservation is amazing for a place over 100 years old. Centrally located to Biltmore Village.

Sitting in it's own grounds this beautiful looking house has real character. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, complimentary coffee, cookies and wine certainly helps the warm welcome. Our room was a victorian style which made a great change from the bland main street motels. You are a 5 minute walk (yes a walk, there are side walks here... More

Why would anyone stay in a hotel when you can be in a beautiful historic house such as this! The interior of the main house is beautifully restored. I stayed in one of the guest cottage house rooms separate from the main house. It was charming, cozy, safe and private. The grounds are nice to wander and sit with a... More

The stay was great. I choose the small room as part of a cottage and it was small but just what I needed. Great breakfast. Learned that being within walking distance to the entrance to The Biltmore did not matter as the entrance was 2 miles from the Biltmore itself!

The stay wasn't bad, but there were quite a few things that could have been done better by a quality B&B. For instance, maybe have a current paper there for guests to read with coffee in the morning. Maybe offering honey as a sweetner for tea and coffee. Or, closing the kitchen door so that the employees' dirty laundry about... More
