Summer of Beauty!
Summer has been mild, with cool nights and enough rain and sunshine to make the summer blooms as beautiful as I can remember. Everyone has been commenting about how pretty our garden is with the Dahlias, Black-eyed Susans, Glads, and Bee Balm all in full bloom. The photo of this single pink Water Lily taken at the Arboretum seems to capture the essence of a summer bloom best of all. We can talk about the new breweries and restaurants or the next festival and concert, but it is the beauty of this area that makes us want to visit and live here.Jodee & Doug Sellers, Innkeepers,
Welcome to Bent Creek Lodge, the Asheville bed and breakfast you’ve been looking for - comfortable, casual, nestled in its own mountain side with the perfect mix of pampered care and privacy.
Bent Creek Lodge has the best of both worlds being only 10 miles from the center of Asheville yet nestled in a forested triangle between the Blue Ridge Parkway and the French Broad River. The lodge feels like a remote mountain get-a-way. You can hike secluded trails out your room door; within a half mile you can start your drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, visit the North Carolina Arboretum or launch a canoe on the French Broad River to float by the Biltmore Estate . Yet it is only a short 15 minute drive to the fine restaurants, galleries, and shops in downtown Asheville, Biltmore Village plus the entrance to the Biltmore Estate.
"We absolutely fell in love with this jewel of an inn……… The approach was spectacular! A winding, tree-lined road that gave way to the stunning main house, brightly lit in the early evening…loved being close enough to the city to drive in easily, but far enough away to enjoy the absolute beauty of the mountains.”

The Lodge itself is warm and inviting with all the comforts and amenities you would expect in a recently built inn. You can stay connected with WiFi throughout the lodge and also enjoy the romantic beauty of a flickering fire in the great room or the solitude on one of the large decks overlooking the mountains and the beautiful gardens filled with blooms, birds and butterflies. The ten distinctively decorated guest rooms are inviting with well-appointed baths, and amazingly comfortable beds.
