My boyfriend and I stayed at at North Lodge on Oakland last night. This was a departure for us, we travel often but generally stay in dependable chain hotels. But this time, I wanted to “feel” like we were in the mountains. This B&B is centrally located and extremely cozy - and mountain feeling! The grounds are lush and the stone exterior of the home is beautiful. David, the owner/host was so welcoming! Breakfast was delicious and we highly recommend the cozy Library Room. I slept amazingly well. We will be back in the fall!
Folks, you can't do better than this. My wife and I stayed for five nights at North Lodge on Oakland and I have no idea where to start with the superlatives. We were in the Marsh Room on the third floor, one of the larger rooms with an opulent king bed, a couple of wing-back recliners, a large walkway to the bath with a nice dressing area, and lots of windows. There's a fridge and Keurig, too. But we didn't spend too much time in the room after we found our favorite reading chairs downstairs next to the front windows and close to treats that Dave regularly puts out for the guests. There are several nooks and corners downstairs with comfy chairs, pillows and throws where you can read alone, play a card game, or get to know other travelers. The breakfasts are some of the best I've had anywhere. Creative but not fussy. I still can't get the french toast soufflé that I had my first morning there out of my mind. I may come back just for that. To us, though, what made North Lodge really wonderful are the owners, Dave and Kevin. Both of them are there to make you feel at home and take care of you. When I was talking to either one, I never got the feeling that I was taking him away from anything (even though I almost certainly was). Last words: when you visit, if Kevin's speakeasy is open don't be a drag -- GO!…
We chose this B&B for our anniversary weekend based on our impressions of the breakfast options and the beautiful photos of the house, and both lived up to our high expectations. The bedrooms and shared areas had so much charm, accentuated by daily homemade treats from the innkeepers. And Dave's multi course breakfast was incredible. If we could have extended our trip just for more delicious breakfasts, we would have! Thank you to Kevin and Dave for serving as kind and attentive hosts.
A great stay in a beautiful building, with comfortable rooms, great breakfasts (and snacks!) and kind hosts. We have been multiple times and will keep going back! It's a great base from which to enjoy all that Asheville offers.
North Lodge is a gem. We booked a fairly impromptu July 4th getaway and were amazed with this place’s charm and hospitality. Kevin and Dave are a class act. Our room was spacious and cozy. Dave’s breakfasts were out of this world. Day 1: egg/chorizo flamenco and a berry soufflé. Day 2: banana split parfait and brisket hollandaise. Let’s not forget about the mid afternoon snack of homemade donuts! Check out this amazing spot. Perfect location, awesome accommodations and great owners. Can’t wait to return!!
