“What Carolyn doesn't tell you about 27 Blake.....”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

It's a beautiful room in a beautiful house, surrounded by an awesome garden. Carolyn takes good care of her guests! The hospitality was so much more than we expected. Carolyn is the perfect host, offering assistance and information when needed and magically disappearing to give you just the right amount of privacy. The room is spotlessly clean, and cleaned everyday. Coffee, small fridge, and even a flat screen tv. Loved it!

Room Tip: Take the room she offers (it's the only one!)

What do say? We won't stay anywhere else when in Asheville!!! 27 Blake is a short walk from downtown Asheville, amongst a lush garden, is very private with all the comforts of home. The bed is incredibly comfortable, my spouse said, "I haven't slept this good in so long!" We loved being able to walk to dinner every night! Carol is an amazing, knowledgeable person who is available when needed while still providing space & privacy. We loved drinking coffee on the porch in the morning and wine in the evening. As a former Ashevillian trust me: you can't beat her prices with this location and the quality of stay!!

While relaxing on the porch overlooking a beautiful garden, I felt happy and grateful for the Victorian charm of my room, the loving, tasteful attention to detail in the house, the little owl in the tree, the quiet of the place and the ease of walking everywhere. But most of all, I have to thank the owner, Carolyn Spain, for her many thoughtful acts of kindness and for making me feel so welcome and at home. Her suggestions were fantastic - I felt like I connected with the very best of Asheville. On so many levels, she is just wonderful.

My partner and I spent 4 day visiting Asheville and 27 Blake street B & B was a perfect place for us to hang our hats. The room is just as it looks in the photos, quaint and charming with a comfortable bed and nice bathroom with a small claw foot tub. Although there is no breakfast at this B & B , there is a coffee maker and small fridge in the room, as well as a great little cafe just a couple of blocks away.
We loved the location with easy access to downtown or the freeway. The neighborhood is charming and made for a delightful evening stroll. Carolyn is a great hostess, always willing to share information about Asheville or help out with directions.
When we return to Asheville we will definitely be staying here, it was just perfect!

We stayed at 27 Blake St for 3 nights and had a great stay. The house is located in a quite residential area, easy walking distance from many restaurants and shopping. Carolyn, the owner, has done a fantastic job with the house and garden, we loved sitting on the porch in the mornings. Be aware, as Carolyn clearly states, the room does not come with breakfast, this is no problem because there are a couple very good cafes within a couple minutes walk. There is coffee and a nice assortment of teas and a small fridge in the room. We found the room very comfortable and slept soundly each night. When our travels find us in Asheville, we will definitely stay here again. To sum it up, Carolyn, the room, and the gardens were all wonderful and we look forward to our next visit.

The reviews of recommending Blake 27 were right on! I went with my girlfriend for a surprise trip to Bele Chere and I could not have picked a more charming place to stay. Our room was perfect and close to everything. We could have spent hours in the beautiful garden. The owner, Carolyn, had great conversation and shared insights on Asheville's best kept secrets. We hated to leave, but will definitely stay there again soon. M. G.

My boyfriend and I were down in Raleigh for a wedding and decided to make the 4 hour drive west to Asheville to satisfy our curiosity for what we had heard was a cool, artsy, southern town in a beautiful setting. We found all of that and more with the help of our wonderful hostess (and guide) Carolyn. Carolyn has the perfect balance of inquisitiveness, respect for privacy, friendliness and helpfulness and a charming southern drawl. We hold dear our mornings on the porch swing overlooking the garden discussing the days potential activities and previous days happenings with her. We loved the cleanliness and the quaintness of our room in her beautiful old Victorian with lush gardens all around. We can't wait to return. Thank you, Carolyn!
