We had many things to celebrate in our family this year, especially my husband's and my 50th wedding anniversary. Bent Creek Lodge was the perfect place to do it. Doug, Jodee and their wonderful staff left no stone unturned to see we were comfortable and that everything was to our satisfaction. Besides the fabulous breakfasts mentioned by others, Jodee and...

I brought my 81 year old mom here for a long weekend. Even though stairs were a concern, she did fine. We completely enjoyed the relaxation of the back deck and the beautiful gardens and garden art collection. Each room is decorated in a theme and is very lodge appropriate. I believe the lodge was built in the late 90's...

An amazing garden to wander, close enough to town but for nature lovers like us the wildlife in the garden was a real plus. Breakfast was good, plentiful and great to be able to eat outside. One place we really want to return too and have told our US friends about. Lots of information about local restaurants and the one...

Can't speak highly enough about this amazing staff and owners. We originally booked 3 nights but ended up only being able to stay for 2 nights and the staff/owners were so understanding and did not charge us for the last minute change. The location of this lodge allowed our short getaway to keep us central to everything we wanted to...

Wonderful staff. Beautiful lodge. Amazing gardens. Delicious food. Practically perfect in every way. My wife and I can't wait to go back. Sit in the common area drinking coffee, eating homemade cookies and playing backgammon. Take a walk in the woods and run back to get out of the rain. Lay in your bed with the windows open listening to...

I would rate this B&B as probably 4.5/5 if that was an option. The location is excellent for access to the blue ridge parkway or arboretum (we visited the arboretum), and it is only a ~20 minute drive to downtown. The lodge itself is very beautiful, with a nice garden in back that you can walk through, and chairs on...

This is a B&B located just outside of Asheville, NC. Built on the side of a hill, very nice appointments. The owners and staff made our stay memorable. We felt extremely comfortable. My wife and I will stay there again any time we are in area.

This place has to be seen to be believed! It is minutes from downtown Asheville and the Biltmore, but has the feel of being in the high NC mountains once you descend the drive up to the Inn. Our host, Doug, and the staff could not have been more gracious during our stay. Doug even went the extra distance to...

Booked three rooms for a weekend to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of family members. Beautiful location in lodge style. Large porches for gathering or just watching the birds, squirrels, etc. Enjoyed the breakfasts, snacks and relaxed atmosphere. We had 2 downstairs and one main level rooms. Really enjoyed the downstairs rooms...stepped out onto large covered deck. Lisa was our...

We brought our mountain bikes and our road bikes for 5 days of riding in and around Asheville. Bent Creek Lodge was a beautiful home base, a short walk in the woods from the Blue Ridge Parkway (excellent road riding) and only a short ride from the Bent Creek Experimental Forest (a wonderful network of fun mountain biking trails).
