My wife and I stayed at the Beaufort House Inn in mid-March 2012 for 3 nights. We arrived the first evening and were provided a tasty glass of wine and shown to a very comfortable and lavish room in this historic house. We stayed in the Theodore Davidson room which had a beautiful 4-poster bed, soft linens, with bright daylight, and a very lovely Jacuzzi tub. We especially liked the gas-fireplace which we used every night to lull us to sleep after a busy day in Asheville.
The home is well maintained with beautiful gardens and a big porch outside. The breakfasts were fantastic (delicious lemon soufle, warm pear crisp, waffles with fruit, sumptuous quiche) with great coffee, tea, and fresh orange juice every day. It was easy to wake up to the smell of breakfast wafting through the house in the morning.
The B&B is run by one of the most friendly, warm, and enjoyable couples we have ever encountered at a B&B. Jim and Chris are fantastic hosts and created a truly enjoyable vacation away from it all. They provided great insights into excursions in and around Asheville, and provided an very homey atmosphere for the entire stay. Despite a busy weekend at the house, we always felt that we were a priority as a guest. Erica the front desk hostess was extremely helpful in helping to book reservations, organize day trips, and was personable and friendly.
My wife and I wished that we did not have to leave at the end of the trip, and would highly recommend this B&B to other couples looking for a great B&B experience in Asheville. The service was superb, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere/rooms were top notch. We will be looking forward to returning again soon!
