... Going from dry arid west to verdant green of the east is like looking at two sides of the coin as is negotiating the old and tired LAX compared to the relative newness of Atlanta airport. Although lugging four HEAVY bags is not easy no matter what the airport is like. Traveling through Georgia to get to Greenville, South Carolina was a very long way (not sure how we'll go driving from Roanoke ...
... so that vegetation was wet. Dan had a machete and chopped away at some of it, but it did little to help. The trail crossed the forest road a couple of times and after about an hour and a half, we made it to the summit of Pilot Mountain. Although there were still quite a few clouds in the sky, we were actually higher than most and had some nice views over the mountains from up here. We stopped here for a ...

The estate is huge – 8000 acres and offers lots of activities so we went on our first Segway tour! We LOVED IT!!!! Mike and I are ready to buy Segways now but we don’t have anywhere to ride them. But we will definitely be going on future Segway tours.

Historical Traveler Reviews Black Walnut Bed and Breakfast Inn Asheville
Although the rooms were amazing, the owners were so annoying that my fiance, parents and I will not go back! All the current owners did was complain about the old owners and their design taste! They also let their dogs roam around everywhere - even in the breakfast room while we were eating. In addition, when my mom asked for a fireplace log for our 2cnd night, the owners blamed the housekeeping staff for not putting it in her room instead of just saying, yes, let me get one for you. Also, as we were checking out they apologized for another guests child (who was perfectly well behaved). There was no need to mention the child and it made me suspicious of whether or not they were complaining about us to the other guests. The owners should just keep their mouths shut and let the place run itself.
The Black Walnut Inn in Asheville, NC is wonderful! The food is gourmet, the owners are friendly and accommodating. I can't wait to return. We will recommend this B&B to all of our friends.
What a fabulous B&B
My boyfriend and I just returned from an incredible stay at the Black Walnut. The charming atmosphere made our stay very cozy and comfortable. Lori and Pete certainly are gracious hosts and went above and beyond to make the stay enjoyable. From the elegant three course breakfast to afternoon Tea/Wine and hors d'oeuvres, we would highly recommend the Black Walnut to anyone looking for a romantic weekend getaway to Asheville.
Charming and delightful-Highly recommended
My husband and I recently stayed at the Black Walnut and we would recommend it to everyone! From the moment we stepped into the foyer we were greeted with smiling faces(the owners-Lori and Peter) and a warm welcome followed by an asking of what we wanted to drink. Instantly we felt right at home. The room was beautifully done and each morning we were treated to a great breakfast-fresh and very gormet. The owners really made it their mission to spoil you and they did! It was more than what we expected. It was well worth every penny.
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful romantic weekend at the Black Walnut. We can't think of anything negetive about the whole weekend. Peter and Lori were wonderful hosts. It was like going to visit old friends for the weekend. The food was fantastic and we loved the appetizers and wine. The Black Walnut is beautiful. We stayed in the Ivy Garden room and it was very romantic. I really can not say enough good things about Peter and Lori and the Black Walnut. We will be back for years to come and will recommend it to all of our friends and family.
Charming B&B in Asheville
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Black Walnut. We were originally looking for a cabin, but with such short notice for only one night we were only able to find a room at a Bed and Breakfast. We are so glad we chose the Black Walnut! The charming Christmas decor was extremely inviting and this is one of the most well-kept B&Bs we had ever seen. From the oversized jacuzzi tubs and luxurious sheets to the afternoon wine tasting and delicious multi-course breakfast, Lori and Peter made sure we did not want for anything during our stay. Lori and Peter were extremely accomodating from the moment we walked in the door. Little did I know my boyfriend was planning to propose that night, and we were certainly pleased to have chosen the Black Walnut for our special night!
We have enjoyed staying at the Black Walnut prior to Lori and Peter White becoming the owners, but now it's one of our all-time favorites. The inn, built by the supervising architect at the Biltmore, is beautiful and although there have been a lot of changes (furniture, paint, draperies) the attention to detail and retaining the design spirit of the original inn have really paid off. Not that it's a stuffy, museum recreation of a turn-of-the-century home - the feeling is more of a harmonious mix of old and new. We especially like the romantic Dogwood Room, built in a turret. The Black Walnut's great location provides an easy walk into downtown Asheville so you can enjoy the galleries, restaurants, and Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe. What Peter and Lori have brought to the inn is a great balance of considerate service, respect for their guests' privacy, and a lot of charm. We loved hearing the stories of their adventures in Nantucket and Florida and enjoyed socializing with the other guests during the afternoon teas that stretched into long, pleasant evenings of conversation. However, if you're not a gregarious sort of person, there's no pressure to sit down and chat. There are plenty of cozy, private spots - in the public areas and in the guest rooms - to enjoy a book or write a letter. We will definitely be back next year during leaf season. And maybe sooner than that!
Beautiful Home. Wonderful B&B
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home in May of 2004. Lori and Peter are the new owners and really do surpass excellence in hospitality. All the rooms are all so comfortable and inviting, the grounds are lovely and the breakfast was wonderful. It was hard to leave the Black Walnut and we both feel that this is the B&B we will compare any others to. Definately our favorite and we look forward to going back again.
During the beginnig of June 2003, we stayed at the Black Walnut for a two-day honeymoon in Asheville. We found their Ivy room to be utterly romantic, and the house well appointed. The 400-count sheets were like sleeping on a little slice of heaven, and the breakfasts were gourmet.
The generously-sized sunken bath was a treat at the end of a long day, and thought it rained both days, we felt snug and content in our accommodations. The grounds are incredible, and lovingly cared for.
Don't miss the Biltmore!
My husband and I visited this inn for our honeymoon and were quite disappointed with the service of the innkeepers. Although the home and the Ivy Garden room were beautiful, we expected better service for the money we spent ($175/night). The "gourmet afternoon tea" consisted of frozen gingersnap cookies. The owners were rarely around for service. And the quiet candlelight breakfast we had imagined was served at the kitchen counter while the owner asked intrusive questions as to how we were spending our honeymoon days. We regret having spent our honeymoon at the Black Walnut.
