We have traveled from Tasmania to Zimbabwe and in between and never stayed in such a warm, welcoming environment. Such stylish attention to detail coupled with gourmet food, and always the willingness to go the extra mile. Hats off to you all!

Property's Favourite Review
Our stay at the Carolina B&B was perfect. It is located in the Montford neighborhood, a very short drive to Downtown Asheville. The B&B and grounds are beautifully maintained. Diana & Kevin are very personable and accommodating hosts. Breakfasts were right out of a 5-star restaurant!! Unique and so very delicious, along with the constantly full cookie jar and coffee & tea always available.. Social distancing was maintained at all times. Our room was so spacious and very comfortable and quiet, and the evening treats that showed up in our room every evening were sweet surprises. Highly recommended to all and we look forward to staying here again on our next visit.

Diana is the perfect hostess. Her home was beautiful and inviting. She followed all Covid guidelines. We stayed in The Goldfinch room and it was nicely decorated. Diana prepared a superb breakfast every morning. My only regret is not asking for a first floor bedroom. My husband and I have problems with climbing stairs. But I recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the Asheville area.

Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to write this lovely review. It was so great to have you here at the Carolina with us. I enjoyed spending time with you both and I'm delighted that you loved the food! Next time we'll put you in the charming Miss Webb room on the first floor and then it will be so much easier for you two. Can't wait to see you again. Until then, be well and take extra good care of yourselves! All of our very best wishes to you.

Wow! This place is awesome. Diana and Kevin are gracious hosts. They have thought of everything. My husband and I had a wonderful stay. Spacious, quaint, homey are just a couple words I would use to describe our stay in the king cottage. The bed was super comfy. The fireplace was a great addition in the room. The location can’t be beat. Walking distance from great restaurants and a brief 4 minute ride and your in Asheville’s downtown. The breakfasts were superb. I loved going to breakfast and picking a new tea every morning from her large assortment of world class teas. And then at night I would stop back in for another cup of hot tea. The sweet treats Kevin would drop off in the early evening were our dessert every night and we loved them. Stop looking now because this is the B&B you want to stay at! Thank you again Kevin and Diana for a wonderful stay at your bed and breakfast!

Thank you so much Natalia for this incredible review! It was so great to have you and Tadd here for five days. You felt like family after the first day. I miss you guys already!! I'm so thrilled that you chose to come and stay here for your first vacation in forever. I know how much you needed this break after this crazy year of COVID. You two are my heros, both in healthcare and spending your days taking care of people. So many blessings to you both for all that you do. Sending you much love and gratitude. Take care of yourselves!!

My wife and I stayed at Carolina B&B for a weekend. It has top of the line amenities, service, and atmosphere. The house was beautiful and so well maintained. The owners really think of every detail, from a multi-course homemade breakfast to seamless check-in, everything was pristine! It was our first time in Asheville and this place made it special! We would recommend anyone stay here.

Thank you so much Will for this amazing review! It was truly our pleasure to have you and Rachel here at the Carolina with us. I thought you earned the "best husband" award for surprising Rachel with a lovely romance package. She said she was delighted with the gorgeous roses, champagne and French Broad Chocolates! Well done sir! I'm so pleased that you both enjoyed your time here and that you felt it was a special place. I hope that you'll come back and see us again. Until then, all of our very best wishes to you both!!
