The first impression upon walking into the Carolina B&B is one of warmth and welcome. The house is delightfully decorated with items that reflect the history of the building as well as the places where Susan and James lived.

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!
