My wife and I were able to make an overnight business trip into a celebration of our 22nd anniversary at Bent Creek Lodge B&B. I have stayed at a lot of B&Bs from South America to the mid west. This property was a delightful change. The lodge was built in the late 1998, and the owners Doug & Jodee Sellers were very kind and welcoming. Over our stay there were +/-5 other couples staying at the lodge. The rooms were very clean, well decorated, beds were comfortable. Most notable is that there was no TV in the room. I kind of liked it as we were there to enjoy each others company and the lodge. It was very peaceful. We stayed in the Wild Flower room and it had a large jet tub that was delightful.
For us, as an overnight get away, this was a good stay for us. It was near Asheville but not in the downtown mix mush of noise and people. We did not hear one police sirene or boom boom music from passerbys the whole time as the lodge is deep in the woods on the side of a small mountain. It was spectacularly peaceful. Breakfast was good and adequate and more than filling. Served with coffee, fruit and waffels. NOTE: Overall Asheville is a little on the pricey side of things as it trys to appeal to the trendy money crowd and to the artsy hippy crowd. So we expected to pay a little more to stay in Asheville (typically double from what is seen elsewhere) and we were not let down in the pricing area. Overall I would stay at The Bent Creek Lodge again, but not on business as it was a little higher priced than my business budget allowd, but it was on the lower side of the price range as compared to the other 50 B&Bs in the Asheville area. In essence it was worth the cost for our stay.
