Be our guest at the Roost B&B;, Farm-Fresh, Gourmet Breakfast included! Operating on just 1/5 of an acre in the heart of the city, we grow our own veggies and herbs; raise our own chickens, ducks, rabbits, and bees; and brew our own beer.
The Roost is located in the heart of West Asheville, walking distance to many wonderful restaurants and local businesses. We are right off of Haywood Rd, two blocks from Sunny Point Cafe, Lucky Otter, Oyster House Brewing Co, and many other favorite spots! Downtown Asheville is a mere 2.5 mile drive or ride, with a bus stop right down the street -- getting to town quickly and easily has never been more simple. The Roost is a 5 minute drive from the Biltmore Estate and a 10 minute drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
All of our rooms are located on the first floor of our historic 1906 home, right inside the front door to allow for early or late access that won't disturb others. We provide a private 4-digit access code for you, relieving any potential stress about losing keys or keeping your possessions safe. Our classic front porch boasts a locally crafted and comfortable swing, and we also have a futon love seat in the front cedar-mulched garden -- both perfect spots to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea in the morning (included) or a glass of wine or beer in the evening.
The house itself has been thoroughly renovated within the past two years, with a fully updated kitchen to provide you the option of cooking a meal if you are feeling like nesting in at home for the evening. Furthermore, we love to provide breakfast for our guests. Please inform us if you'd like to add breakfast to your stay, and if you have any specific preferences or allergies. We also offer eggs and seasonal produce, grown right outside your window, for sale as available.
Guests have access to a same-floor guest bathroom that has been recently remodeled. All common rooms on the first floor are shared spaces and available for use including the dining room, living room, and kitchen.
We love to meet all kinds of folks and would be happy to recommend a few places based on your preferences, or even show you a few if we are available that day! We will be present for most of the time during your stay, as there is always farm work to do, but we like to work hard and get out and play too.
My partner Patrick is a trained chef, and will cook you a delicious gourmet breakfast full of homegrown and farm-fresh ingredients. Please be sure to inform us if you have any dietary restrictions, allergies, or preferences so we can be sure to accommodate you!
If you would like to have a meal cooked by Patrick one night, please let us know at least 12 hours in advance and we can give you a price and prepare a menu that you will be sure to love. In addition, we offer customized picnics for those who would like to enjoy a home-cooked meal in the numerous beautiful outdoor spots in and around Asheville.
Please let us know if you have any dietary issues, we will also ask at the time of booking. If you DO NOT specify, we will assume that you have none and will prepare and serve accordingly. Please do not wait until you arrive or the day of arrival (unless you booked that day), as we have already begun to plan and prep for the next few morning meals. Unlike some, we do not charge extra for any dietary wants/needs as long as we know ahead of time, so please be courteous....Read more
