On a quiet street in the historic Montford district, our Asheville bed and breakfast awaits you.
The Carolina Bed & Breakfast is your home away from home. Whether you choose a pleasant stroll to town to visit one of the many award-winning restaurants or shops, visit the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, or spend a day at the Biltmore Estate, you will find yourself happy to return to this cozy, historic house.
In the winter, a cheery fire will greet you in the sitting room. In the summer, a cool drink and refreshments will await you on either of the two porches where you may sit and enjoy a gentle evening breeze and the birdsong in the surrounding gardens.
This lovely Asheville, NC bed and breakfast was built in 1901 by Richard Sharp Smith, supervising architect of the Biltmore. The spacious Arts & Craft style rooms showcase the unique, original art and antiques which the owners have collected in their voyages around the world. Your visit will be enhanced by the small touches which make all the difference: a plate of fresh cookies in your room, nibbles by the fireplace in the evening, and personalized service to help make your stay special.
The large guest rooms have unique queen and king beds with luxurious linens and comforters, air-conditioning, flat-screen cable television, and five of the rooms have fireplaces. Wireless Internet is provided throughout the house. Each room also has a private bath, many with whirlpool or Jacuzzi tubs. Also on the property is a private cottage with king bed, day bed, small kitchenette, two-person whirlpool tub, and fireplace.
Breakfast in the morning is prepared with great care to provide you with a meal that is bountiful, creative, and delicious. Our gourmet breakfasts have met with acclaim from our guests. We use only the freshest ingredients and make every effort to buy locally when we can. Fresh fruit, home-baked breads and biscuits, and mouthwatering main courses are served every day. Our evening social hour features beverages from the Biltmore Estate as well as as array of delicious canapes, both hot and cold. Freshly baked cookies are available throughout the day and you will find a special sweet treat in your room in the evening. With advance notice we can accommodate special diets.
The Carolina Bed & Breakfast stands out among the inns of Asheville for its gracious style in a homey atmosphere. Our family readily welcomes you to our Asheville home.

A note from your host…
At long last it seems than Spring is truly here. As I write this I can look out the window and see the Forsythia flowering in my neighbor's backyard with a Redbud tree just beginning to bloom behind it. Is there anything more glorious than Spring in Western North Carolina? Our rooms have been refreshed and repairs made over the winter. The gardens are being cleared and planting beginning in the annual beds and in the herb garden. Soon it will be time for strawberry jam and asparagus tarts! This year, in conjunction with the Asheville Visitors Center, we are highlighting the Blue Ridge Parkway, the mountains and outdoor activity. At the Carolina we have created a special hiker's package complete with picnic and luxurious foot soak afterwards. For more details please check our Specials Page
There is so much to do and see in and around Asheville, James and I look forward to sharing our town with you!
