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...

Once in bed the glow of the in room fireplace put me to sleep. I slept like a baby ;-) In the morning we were greeted by the smell of coffee and a wonderful breakfast.

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…

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!
