About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Daybed Sofa, 1 Bath (sleeps 4 comfortably)

The Asheville-based Sweet Biscuit Carriage House is a two-story brick and cedar shake cottage, perfect for traveling families or a group of friends. Our cozy cottage has a downstairs living room with wall-mounted HD flat-screen cable TV with DVD including a compact stereo system, a new full kitchen with dishwasher and dining area. There is a twin-size daybed sofa which converts at night to sleep one child (full bedding provided upon request). Upstairs are two identical queen bedrooms and a completely remodeled modern shared full bath with bath tub, shower and elegantly designed vessel sink on a granite top.

The Carriage House sleeps a maximum of 4 adults (two in each queen bedroom) and 1 child (on the convertible daybed sofa/trundle). This accommodation is not comfortable for use by more than 4 adults. Please notify us in advance should you wish to use the downstairs sofa as a sleeping accommodation so we can provide full bedding ($25 per night). A Pack'n'Play can be provided free of charge.

The Carriage House rents for $219 per night, including the fully equipped kitchen which allows guests to prepare their own meals. This vacation rental is adjacent to the Sweet Biscuit Inn, a B&B on the same property.

Breakfast is not included. As an optional extra, seating capacity permitting, our Carriage House guests are welcome to join our other room guests in the adjacent B&B Inn to be served a three-course gourmet breakfast. If the main house is fully booked we will not be able to seat Carriage House guests. This applies in particular to weekends, holidays and the entire month of October. The breakfast rate is $15 per person (children under 2 eat free of charge), and it is sufficient to inquire about availability the day before.

Dogs are welcome to accompany our Carriage House guests upon prior reservation, provided they do not enter the upstairs bedrooms. No cats please.

Enjoy our friendly and walkable intown neighborhood of Kenilworth. There are century-old oak trees, evergreens, a lush lawn, perennial gardens and a playground on the property. We are a short walk to Biltmore Village and and a short drive to exciting downtown Asheville.

About Christian Hickl

Sweet Biscuit Inn, a bed and breakfast in Asheville, North Carolina, was opened in 1999. Claudia and Christian Hickl purchased the Inn and moved here April 2012 from Provence, France. We have found a great quality of life in Asheville, NC, and want to share with you the reasons Asheville, North Carolina is on everyone's 'Top 10 Places to Live' list. Come and stay in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains, visit the Biltmore Estate, Beer/wine and dine in our eclectic downtown, and shop till you drop our extensive arts and crafts scene.

Christian Hickl purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Christian Hickl chose Kenilworth

Asheville is a beautiful art filled mountain town with delicious food, music every block, best beer in the USA, fantastic people watching and the place to relax in the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains. Visit the Biltmore Estate, picnic on the Blue Ridge Parkway, dance on the city green, come for fun and enjoy yourselves like you never thought you could! Altitude affects Attitude.

What makes this cottage unique

Sweet Biscuit Carriage House in Asheville, North Carolina caters to urban sophistication with a flair for comfort and friendliness. You get the best of all worlds: Vicinity to downtown and Biltmore Estate, yet located in a quiet, residential neighborhood; independent cottage vacation, yet right next to a sophisticated B&B Inn whose owners offer most of their services to Cottage guests as well -- optional and upon request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the carriage house and loved it. Plenty of room. They treated us like family and were very helpful with directions. The food is fabulous, they even shared a recipe with us! The Inn is conveniently located. Great place to stay!

The cottage was perfect for the 3 of us for the weekend - location, space, kitchenette, comfort. The hosts were also attentive and accommodating. When we return to Asheville, we will choose the cottage again.
