Description

Surrounded by 160 wooded acres, this rustic mountain retreat was designed to sit serenely amid the scenery. The sprawling wooden lodge with pine floors boasts a great room with an inviting stone fireplace and billiards. Antiques and handcrafted furnishings grace the guest bedrooms, decorated in regional themes that reflect the variety of the state. Themes include tobacco barns, water, biking, birds, Outer Banks and wildflowers. Some offer whirlpool tubs, and most have balconies with mountain and forest views. Fresh ingredients are used in Apple and Mascarpone-Stuffed French Toast, Smoked Trout Hash and other delicious breakfast foods. Enjoy the view from one of the three decks while planning tomorrow's adventures.

beautiful place

What a lovely place to stay! I only wish that we had more than one night. We were made to feel really welcome. We loved the fire and the lovely Christmas tree as well as the casual atmosphere. We enjoyed the paths through the woods & would love to come back when the outdoor fire pit is going. Thank you, Janet

Blue Ridge Parkway / Biltmore

What a beautiful, restful and inviting Inn! We were traveling with friends from CO on the Blue Ridge Parkway and each of our rooms were special. The porch swings, living rooms and garden call you to relax and enjoy. The breakfast and snacks were delicious! Both Doug and Jodee were very helpful with recommendations and directions. We wanted to stay longer. We'll be back!

Good memories

You will not regret your stay at the Bent Creek Lodge. It feels like a 5-star luxury resort, while maintaining a comfortable homey quality. It is beautiful, both in setting and in design. If you want privacy, you have it, but if you want fellowship, you can find it. The owners have thought of everything, and I mean every little thing. You have access to free wi-fi, dozens of restaurant recommendations, and pre-printed instructions on how to get there, keys to both the front lodge entrance, AND to your own room's back door! Coffee, tea, fresh water and ice, refrigerator, multiple gathering rooms, if you are traveling as more than a couple. There are options for reading, a cozy fireplace, billiards table and more. Breakfast is delicious, and so uniquely enjoyable, that you may want to buy the proprietor's cookbook like we did, and we don't even cook! The forested moutainside location is a veritable bird sanctuary, the parking is ample, and the location is convenient to area pursuits, but still out of the way. In-room massage therapists can be arranged, and we highly recommend doing that - ask for Jennifer, and get the best deep tissue massage you will ever have! We would choose Bent Creek again just for that experience, even if there weren't many other reasons.

Peace and Quiet

My wife and I stayed for just one night. The first place we stayed we were dissatisfied with so we made arrangements to stay at the Bent Creek Lodge. It was exactly what we were looking for, we should have stayed the other nights there as well. We will from now on when we visit Asheville.

Leap of Faith Our first B&B experience

We had a wonderful time and are extremely happy to have taken a leap of faith to give it a try. It had the feeling and warmth of home, but the privacy awarded by 4-star hotels.

Romantic Birthday Celebration

My husband found Bent Creek Lodge. We stayed there to celebrate my birthday at the end of April, 2009. After we checked in, I couldn't wait to go outside to visit the garden and also to sit on the porch. In addition to being located close to NC Arboretum, this inn is spacious and impeccably clean. I would like to stay there again and will recommend it to my friends. Irena Brubaker

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

We thoroughly enjoyed our too short a time with these hospitable people. We highly recommend this lovely picturesque lodge and wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you!

Wonderful getaway

My husband and I wanted to get away to the quiet and beauty of the Smokey Mountains area. We could not have selected a better B&B for the trip. Driving in, we were a little nervous since our directions didn't seem to be taking us too far off the experssway - but then we turned onto the Bent Creek Road and all was serene and wonderful. The house itself is wonderfully homey and inviting, while keeping an element of sophisitcation, not often seen in B&Bs. Jodee is a delight. She's also very helpful and a fantastic cook! We took walks on the property, went hiking in the very nearby arboretum and explored the Parkway, and were still centrally located to longer exploration destinations and the yummy restaurants of Asheville itself. We will certainly be back!

A Wonderful Place

My wife and I definitely enjoyed our stay at the Bent Creek Lodge. The Lodge is a relaxing, secluded, well-maintained, welcoming, and refreshing experience that I would recommend to anyone looking for a reasonably priced bed and breakfast convenient to Asheville. Doug and Jodee are very kind innkeepers and their breakfasts are delicious! When we visit Asheville again, Bent Creek Lodge will certainly be our first choice of accommodation.

A Mnt. bike haven

Not being much for period antiques and Victorian fluff, we chose this beautiful Inn set into a wooded hillside just outside of Asheville . This rustic lodge (designed and hand built by the owners) was very comfortable, with lots of decks to sit out on, nice ground to explore and the tasteful decorations of the "Bike room" room really appealed to me and my GF. The hosts (Doug and Jodee) were awesome and gave us just the right amount of attention. They made last min. dinner reservations for us, recommended a spa for massages, and providing us with a trail map and Mnt. biking trail recommendations so we could explore the nearby Bent Creek Mnt. bike trails. The food was great. Jodee has a culinary degree and it really showed! (fabulous brownies and banana stuffed French toast!) We cant wait to make a return trip!

An Outstanding mini vacation

We spent 2 1/2 days at the Bent Creek Lodge and truly enjoyed everything from the crisp clean rooms to the delicious breakfast and the warm friendly welcome we received from the the inn keepers. It was a wonderful experience.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Bent Creek Lodge. It was better in person than in the pictures. I just can't thank Jodee and Doug enough for their Hospitality. Beautiful views, Excellent Breakfast and Convience to everything Asheville has to offer.
