Hands down the best B&B I've stayed at. We will be going back every year. Amazing!

We just returned from a 3 day stay at the Wildberry Lodge - my only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer! This is everything a B&B should be - breath-taking mountain views, delicious breakfast and snacks (and always an open bottle of wine in the common room!), well appointed but still maintaining a quaint, homey feel (although maybe that was just their sweet, lovable dogs or the adorable goats outside!), a lovely and cozy room with a very comfortable bed, and wonderful hosts. They also provide a lot of thoughtful touches - commemorative hand-crafted mugs and matching water bottles as mementos of our visit, a mini-fridge outside our room stocked with snacks and drinks, and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us upon arrival. The game room is a nice addition (billiards and a small sauna) although we didn't make use of it. This B&B is not to be missed - just a half hour outside of downtown Asheville, it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a fresh breath of mountain air!

The Wildberry Lodge is the quintessential B&B experience! Gorgeous location, comforting accommodations, excellent food and attentive service.

Our favorite thing about our stay was how purposed and thoughtful everything was. Ken, Glenda and Pat found wonderful ways to be present without being invasive. The lodge was just as beautiful and comfortable as you'd expect, but it was the little touches that really made us love our stay. Freshly made daily appetizers and wine tastings, snug robes and local hand-made mugs in our rooms, hiking lanterns and smores kits - ready and waiting just in case you wanted them! Everytime I thought "Hrm, you know it would nice to have - " I would find it already laid out.

My wife and I went out and around the area to see all the sites, but we just kept finding that all we wanted to do was go back to the Wildberry. We had a brilliant time and we know you will too!
Highly Recommended.

Wow, my husband and I just returned from our stay at Wildberry Lodge. The lodge is an amazing work of architecture with an absolutely beautiful view of the valley and mountains. From the moment we set our bags down it was just like being home, but without the to do list. We enjoyed wine in the evenings out on the deck and while enjoying the fire. Glenda and Ken are gracious host and fabulous cooks. We will be back to visit them again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Gooseberry Room with a balcony and an amazing view.

We just left the Wildberry Lodge today, and honestly hated to leave! This log cabin inn is nestled high on a ridge and every room has a private deck. The lodhabits as cozy as a cabin, but grand in stature. The great room looks out at the mountains through floor to ceiling windows -Three stories high.
We stayed in the Blackberry Suite and enjoyed supreme comfort in a large space with high ceilings. Our suite included a sunroom which was strategically placed to welcome the morning sun and face the hiking trail and fire pit in the evening. Simply lovely! The king sized bed was very comfortable, luxury sheets, lots of pillows, cozy furniture. Our suite had a wood burning fireplace that was stocked and ready to burn everyday when we returned from a busy sight seeing day. The bathroom in the suite is very large with a two person jetted tub, large shower and Jack and Jill vanity. Cozy robes, warmed towels, luxurious! Every morning we enjoyed a gourmet breakfast- yesterday it was lemon pecan blackberry pancakes, fruit and granola parfait (homemade granola) and baked plums. We had to leave early so we couldn't have breakfast today, but our thoughtful innkeepers baked muffins for our trip! Our hosts would magically appear when we needed something, friendly and talkative, but were also discreetly absent so we could enjoy the quiet romantic setting.
We plan to stay at the Wildberry every year for our anniversary, if you plan on staying near Asheville, you can't go wrong at the Wildberry Lodge!
