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...

We stayed in the Cottage, which was adorable! It is large, well decorated and luxurious. The daily breakfast was fantastic and we truly enjoyed the wine in the afternoon.

Breakfast was different both mornings, but equally good. I loved that they always had nuts, cookies or chocolate available to satisfy any cravings.

A Note from Your Host…

January is almost gone (just like the snow which is melting fast).  Now is the time to think seriously about Valentine’s Day.  This year, due to some happy circumstances around dates, it’s not too late!  Yes, our rooms are booked for Friday and Saturday, February 12 & 13th.  But there is still availability for Sunday and Monday, February 14& 15th, with the added bonus that the 15th is Presidents Day, a holiday for many!  Get credit for celebrating the true Valentine’s Day (February 14th) and book an overnight stay at the Carolina.  We will be doing our best with hearts and flowers and special dishes all weekend long.  There are fireplaces in every room while many of our rooms have Jacuzzi or whirlpool bathtubs.  A hotel is okay for some things, but it takes a Bed & Breakfast to really achieve romance!  Call now 828-254-3608.

Looking forward, the Biltmore opens a special exhibit, Fashionable Romance: Wedding Gowns In Film, on February 12th. Gowns from films set in the years from 1645 to 1935 will be displayed in the rooms of the house along with the never-before exhibited wedding veil of Jacqueline Kennedy.  As visitors to last year’s Downton Abbey Exhibit discovered, the addition of mannequins and period costumes adds life and interest to the Biltmore rooms!  Winter Tickets are available from us for $45/person

The inn is open Weekend and Holidays only until Mid-March.  Please check our website for availability.
