This is more of an inn than a B&B. The rooms was large, with a real fireplace that was prepared for us each day. Best of all, there was a GORGEOUS view of the mountains from the terrace. A welcome, peaceful retreat. There are also 2 hikes on the property which were lovely and quiet. One think I would recommend... More

Beautiful, arts and crafts style inn with only twelve spacious rooms, a fabulous chef, welcoming staff, incredibly comfortable bedding, great and spacious baths with soaking tubs looking out at the views, lots of comfy places for conversation on little patios, in front of the great stone fireplace, on the long screened porch. For hikers who like a cozy place to... More

We love this inn and stay here overtime we are in Asheville. Afternoon snacks and tea in a porch rocker looking at the beautiful mountains is my idea of heaven. The amazing dinners and breakfasts are out of this world. We love disconnecting and spending time in this magical place with an amazing staff that feels like family!!!

We stayed 3 nights and I wished we would have stayed longer. I traveled with my father and 3 daughters. We all loved the location and the attentiveness of the staff. Susan Curtis is the owner's daughter and we really felt as if we were in her "home." She was a wonderful hostess. I highly recommend this hotel!

We didn't want to leave the Sourwood Inn today as it has now become our favorite of all Inn vacations. The Inn is so thoughtfully located as to woo the guests gently away from town.
