Spotlight on our client "The Carolina Bed & Breakfast"

Head out on the Blue Ridge parkway driving up in the Blue Ridge Mountains until you get to "Carolina Bed & Breakfast" in Asheville, North Carolina.  It's a spectacular and scenic drive  and just when you are hypnotized by the magnificent view,  you arrive at Susan & James Murray's home. The Murrays'  history as interesting as their bed & breakfast.  Their adventure began when they accepted a post in Paris in 1980.  Susan said they never looked back and loved their adventure and the people they met in four different countries over 27 years.  Having a bed & breakfast allows them to do the things they love: cooking, gardening and restoring a beautiful old home.  Speaking of their home, this historic Asheville house was built by Richard Sharp Smith in 1901 for Maria Brown.  Smith had taken over as Supervising Architect of the Biltmore Estate following the death of Richard Hunt.  
The Carolina Bed & Breakfast is a cozy home nestled on a quiet street in the historic Montford district. From there, you can spend a day at the Biltmore Estate and return in the evening to a cheery fireplace in the sitting room in the winter or one of their two porches in the summer.  The Murrays' provide their guest with a gourmet breakfast making every effort to buy locally when available.  The large guest rooms have unique queen and king beds with luxurious linens and five of the rooms have fireplaces.  Each room has a private bath, many with a whirlpool or Jacuzzi.
The Carolina Bed & Breakfast stands out among the inns of North Carolina for it's gracious style.  You will always be welcome there!
