Pet Policy

Pets are not permitted at the inn.

Please be aware that we do own a cat.  Otis is never allowed into the inn or into any of the guest areas.  Nevertheless, you may meet him in the garden and while we try to discourage it, he does like to come up to the front porch.

Deposit Policy

A deposit is due at the time of booking.  We ask that each room reservation be guaranteed by a one-night deposit or 50% of the total booking, whichever is greater.  All deposits must be made by credit card at the time of booking and will be guaranteed with the credit card on file.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that sometimes cancellations are unavoidable and we have tried to come up with a cancellation policy that is fair to all.  We are a small six room inn and are unable to withstand the loss of income that may result from a short notice cancellation.  In addition there are costs to us when we process a deposit and when we make a refund.  After careful consideration, the following is the cancellation policy of the Carolina Bed & Breakfast.
If notification of a cancellation is received at least 3 days (72 hours) prior to the arrival date, the deposit is refundable less a $10.00 cancellation fee per room/per day with a minimum charge of $40.00   If notification of a cancellation is received less than 72 hours (3 days) prior to the arrival date, the deposit will be forfeited unless we are able to rebook the room.  Depending on the number of room nights rebooked, the deposit may be partially or fully returned less the cancellation fee.   Early departure falls within our cancellation policy. There are no refunds for early departure. We reserve the right to treat a partial cancellation as a cancellation for the entire stay.

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.

A Note from Your Host…

I’m calling it: Spring is officially here (present weather excepted)!  In spite of the recent cold snap our flowers and fresh herbs are pushing their way out of the ground.  And even more indicative, we have a new and improved golf package at the award winning Grove Park Inn Golf course.  Not only do we have special rates for our guests but the rates include a full set of club rentals as well.  We can even accommodate spur of the moment decisions to play!  For more details please check our Specials Page (Click Here).

For those who don’t play golf, we are happy to help you plan a hike or drive through the country, complete with picnic.  Spring really is special here in Western North Carolina.  So plan your visit today!
