Xmas and New Years with the girls

... we were absolutely spoilt. Seeing that Luke and I weren't buying each other gifts this Xmas, Daniel and the girls proceeded to splash out on us - very naughty of them. Thankfully we managed to Skype mum & Aunty in Tauranga and the O'Briens in Whangarei at Luke's Nana's house.

Xmas day was spent lazing around. A typical Xmas day. We received specific orders to stay out of the kitchen. ...

The Biltmore Estate

... and there were too many stairs for someone who is handicapped. so we borrowed one of their wheel chairs, so I could sit in it and John could push it and lean on it. This also enabled us to take an elevator between the two main floors. Unfortunately, we had to climb to the other floors on the stairs.

We ate a lovely, but expensive, lunch in the cafe at the stables and then headed to our reserved Butler's Tour, which was recommended by ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Albemarle Inn Asheville

    Disappointed in our stay


    We stayed at this inn for five nights in July. We stayed in the Sunrise Suite, a lovely room on the second floor with an attached sunporch. The room was large and nicely decorated with a huge canopied king size bed. The sunporch had comfortable wicker furniture. The bathroom was small with the tub/shower on a one-step platform which required us to think where we were putting our feet in getting out of the tub. The room was very clean and the linens were luxurious.

    Beautiful inn, not so gracious service


    Our family met here for the weekend. We arrived at 3pm on Friday afternoon and it was quite chilly inside the inn. We requested some coffee or hot beverage while we waited for the rest of our family to arrive and were told that we'd have to wait until 5PM when "beverage service" was available. We thought this was quite an abrupt answer considering the price of the rooms. We replied that we were chilly and were told that the heat was on a timer and would come on at 4pm. This set the entire tone for the weekend.

    Excellent Inn!


    My fiance and I recently returned from a three night stay at the Albemarle Inn. Everything about the inn was exceptional, from the great service, to the great amenities, to the delicious gourmet breakfasts and afternoon snacks. The owners of the inn, Cathy and Larry, leave nothing to be desired. Their attention to detail is exquisite. Jan, the general manager, was also an incredible host. She made sure that all guests felt right at home. The inn is very proud of their 4 Diamond rating. I have to add, I have stayed at many 4 Diamond hotels and never had service and comfort like I did at the Albemarle. In that respect I feel that the Albemarle truly deserves a 5th Diamond!

    Very Disappointed


    After reading the positive reviews of the Albemarle on this site, and given its credentials, my husband and I were very excited about staying there for our anniversary. I'm sorry to say it was very disappointing. I really don't have anything positive to say about our experience. We stayed in the nicest room in the Inn, thinking it would be the best of the best. However, it was just average. The breakfast was very underwhelming and we were not offered any flexibility with the menu. The service overall was poor. We really can't recommend that you stay at the Albemarle.

    The Most Wonderful Inn in the United States!


    I always make a point at staying at a bed and breakfast when I travel.

    This inn is truly the best inn I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. It is beautiful without being over done and the staff and innkeepers are marvelous!! I would tell anyone to stay here. You won't regret it, and in fact, you may find that it will be one of the nicest get aways you have ever experienced. Five stars!

    Can't ask for anything better!


    We took a family trip to Asheville last week and chose to stay at Albemarle Inn instead of the much publicized Biltmore Inn or Grove Park Inn. I read about Albemarle when I was researching for the best B&B's in Asheville and it came up as one of the only two AAA 4-diamond B&Bs there. This place certainly deserves all the diamonds there are! Inn keepers Cathy and Larry made me and my family feel like home and pampered us with unsurpassed hospitality and service. As Larry put it, "bed" and "breakfast" are the two things they do best. How true! We booked two suites - the Royal Hideway and the Sunrise Suite. Each suite is spacious. well furnished and has a cart filled with gourmet coffee and tea along with a coffee maker. The furniture is well appointed and the bed is large and soft and covered with beautiful puffy pillows. The robes are soft and warm and match the decor of the room. After a good night of sleep you wake up to a magnificient 2 or 3-course breakfast.

    The Best B&B


    We arrived late in the evening after a long drive from Chicagoland, delayed by one traffic jam after another, as it was the Thanksgiving holiday.We had planned to spend the day before Thanksgiving (the next morning) with "The Vanderbilts" at the Biltmore Estate.Driving through the dark, mountain streets of Asheville, I could barely make out the numbers on the grand homes that lined the street.At the end of one street stood a stately, white home-with the porch light on. As soon as we pulled into the drive and got out, we were met by Cathy.Smiles, hospitality and service were foremost on her mind as she quickly found us a restaurant open late, calmed our nerves with a glass of wine and made sure we would not miss the early breakfast call.We purchased our Biltmore passes from her and slept in a beautiful room. A nice tour before we departed with a sincere invitation to return.We found that a few couples were frequent visitors-they would not stay any other place-why should they?Larry's wit and Cathy's grace would ensure your comfort and make their home feel like you wished it was your own.

    The Albemarle Inn Was Magic!


    My wife and I stayed at the Albemarle during our Honeymoon to Asheville back in April of 2001. My wife asked me to choose where we were going to go and surprise her after the ceremony. I thought with the Biltmore Estate and the Blueridge Mountains, Asheville seemed like a nice destination. When it came time for me to choose a place to stay, I decided to look for a Bed & Breakfast rather than a regular hotel. One look at the charming, stately Albemarle and I was immediately intrigued. I took their virtual tour online and was sold. The grace and beauty of the place was obvious. We arrived and spent 5 wonderful days there. Apart from the warm and friendly atmosphere, the food was out of this world. Breakfasts fit for a king! After each day spent exploring the beauty of Asheville and its many points of interest (the Biltmore was incredible) it was always so nice to return to the Albemarle for a relaxing evening. During our stay, my wife thanked me and said I couldn't have planned a more perfect Honeymoon or a nicer place to stay. She's right. I can't recommend it strongly enough. It was pure romantic magic.

    Beautiful Inn


    Great Inn. Superb gourmet breakfasts and warm hospitality. Cathy and Larry give individual attention to each guest and take care of details. No wonder their Inn just received the AAA 4-diamond award. We highly recommend it.

    Albemarle Inn - loved everything!


    The Albemarle Inn is within walking distance of the Grove Park Inn, and we highly recommend staying at this b&b before booking a room at the Grove Park. The staff are helpful, friendly and delightful. Their chef prepares incredible breakfasts. The location of the inn is extremely quiet and the homes surrounding it are gorgeous. I recommend this for all travellers.
