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.

Exciting news here at the Carolina: After much deliberation we have decided to host elopements and small weddings at our Asheville Bed and Breakfast. You can read about two which have been held here in the past year on our blog, The Kitchen Garden. Additional information is posted on our website on a dedicated wedding page. If you are looking for a site for a small, intimate wedding designed to suit your needs and desires, please consider the Carolina Bed & Breakfast.
Spring has been kind of hit or miss here (as in a lot of the rest of the country!) but it looks like warmer days and nights are finally returning. That being said, our garden has definitely benefited from the rain. It's exciting to watch the carefully planned and laid-out landscaping of last spring begin to flourish and fill in. We are having some new professional pictures taken and will be sharing them with you when we get them.
Or you could come and visit and see for yourself!
