Welcome to Our Asheville Bed & Breakfast

A short walk from downtown Asheville will bring you to the Carolina Bed & Breakfast.  From the minute you see the warm yellow stucco walls of this 1901 Arts and Crafts Style house you will know you have found your home in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  The Inn is surrounded by almost an acre of gardens in which flowers abound as well as carefully tended herbs which are used extensively in preparing the many wonderful dishes and treats offered to guests.   Six spacious rooms and a cottage showcase the unique, original art and antiques from the owners’ collection.

Mouthwatering main courses

A special sweet treat in your room in the evening

The Carolina Bed & Breakfast stands out among the inns of Asheville for its gracious style in a homey atmosphere. We are happy to share with you advice, maps and information about our town. The comfortable public areas serve both as a friendly gathering place for guests in the evening as well as a quiet, restful place in which to work and relax. We invite you to read reviews from our guests, many of whom speak of friendships formed on our porch and in our living rooms, wonderful conversation, great food and expert advice along with a high degree of comfort and welcome.

The Carolina Bed & Breakfast does not discriminate based on Race, Religion or Sexual Preference.  Good people of every type are welcome at our inn.  It’s not who you love it’s that you love at all that counts.

A Note from Your Host…

The Holiday’s are upon us!  It doesn’t seem possible.  But shortly the inn will be decked out for the end of the year and we will be busy baking mince pies and other holiday treats.  And of course we have some specials and suggestions for our guests as well.

Be sure and  check out our Biltmore Christmas Special.  Four floors of the Biltmore decorated from top to bottom for Christmas with an evening visit which includes rooms not open during the day. The fireplaces are lit and trees aglow as you tour the house.  This year’s theme is “Hearth and Home”.  It’s a Christmas tradition not to be missed!

In addition to the display at the Biltmore, you will want to visit the Grove Park Inn to view the finalists in the National Gingerbread House Competition, on display from November 27, 2016-January 5th, 2017.  On a smaller scale, the Smith-McDowell House is an Antebellum Mansion  built in 1840 which offers a Victorian Christmas Display from November 17th.  At the Carolina we follow our family tradition of honoring Thanksgiving by refraining from decorating until after that holiday.  But once Thanksgiving is over, we give in to a whole hearted love of Christmas with a live tree decorated with glass ornaments and small trees in every room.  Special holiday baking is also a in important part of the month!
