Our Food

Food should be a mindful celebration of the wondrous experience of being alive. (Principles of Prana)

At the Carolina Bed & Breakfast we believe that food should be…

  • Seasonal, fresh, and locally sourced whenever possible
  • Made flavorful with fresh herbs and spices
  • Innovative and interesting
  • Attractive in presentation
  • Prepared with love and attention to detail

With its strong agriculture roots, including many small farms using sustainable practices, and chefs dedicated to enhancing the farm to table experience, Asheville has become a mecca for lovers of excellent food.  At the Carolina Bed & Breakfast your Asheville food experience will begin with breakfast. Our evening reception includes Biltmore Beverages as well as a selection of hot and cold canapés which are a highlight for many of our guests.  And when you return home in the evening a small sweet treat will be found in your room.

Our Guests Say...

The Robin’s Nest room was small and cozy and out of the way, which is just what we were looking for. The bed was plush and there is a great corner gas fireplace that kept the room toasty.

We’ll no longer look elsewhere for Asheville accommodations, and have already recommended it to others we know planning to visit the town in the near future.

A Note from Your Host…

Happy 2017!

Everyone here at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast wishes you a year of prosperity and happiness. Last year was not without its challenges for Asheville and Western North Carolina but the smoke from the forest fires has cleared and the town continues to welcome everyone in a spirit of tolerance and acceptance.  We hope that you will consider visiting us and letting us share our town with you.

Asheville in the winter offers quiet streets and stores, fewer crowds at the Biltmore and nearby winter sports including skiing.

Asheville in the spring starts in late February or early March with snowdrops and crocuses, swiftly followed by gardens filled with daffodils and flowering trees.

Asheville in summer is a non-stop adventure with something new on every street corner, river rafting, mountain hikes, festivals and music abound.

Asheville autumn is a glorious display of colorful trees with warm days and cool nights to enjoy.

So come and visit us this year and let us show you our town! And until then, bring a touch of the Carolina Bed & Breakfast to your home with a purchase of my cookbook, Our Family Table: Recipes and Lessons From A Life Abroad.  It contains many of the recipes our guests enjoy and request at our inn as well as some easy recipes for small or larger groups.  You can order it on Amazon or by following the links on this page.
