Bed & Breakfast on Tiffany Hill
What We Love
- The South’s first B&B to land a spot in Southern Living’s Hotel Collection, with a suiteFeeling right at home, with complimentary 24-hour snacks, beverages, coffee and tea
- Staying at a property inspired by Southern Living and the South's only B&B in its Hotel Collection
- Visiting the Biltmore and daydreaming of life in this massive estate
- Heading to the new Sierra Nevada Brewery for a fascinating tour
Hospitality can be found around the world, but none like you’ll find in the south. Tucked away in small-town Mills River, North Carolina, Bed & Breakfast on Tiffany Hill is a fabulous case in point. Here, the three-course breakfast is gourmet, the 24-hour snacks and drinks are complimentary, and the seven guest abodes are suites, each inspired by a southern town. No wonder that the logo is a pineapple, the classic symbol of friendship and welcome and America’s answer to the olive branch.
No wonder, too, that this lovely inn was written up in Every Day with Rachael Ray, is a recipient of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, is an ILoveInns.com Top Ten Romantic Inn for 2016 and is the South’s first B&B to land a spot in Southern Living’s Hotel Collection. In fact, the inn was largely inspired by the pages of Southern Living. So in addition to basking in the southern hospitality, go and engage in some of that southern living: Visit nearby Asheville’s Biltmore Estate, bird watch or explore in the secret garden. Or, simply take out a book from the inn library and curl up on the seven-layer bed that comes with your suite.
Each inspired by a favorite southern town – such as Lexington, Beaufort or Charlottesville – the seven elegant guest suites aim to reflect the hospitality made famous by the south. With such delights as seven-layer beds, they do a pretty excellent job of it.
Less than 30 minutes from vibrant Asheville, Mills River is the perfect place to experience quaint southern living and explore North Carolina’s great outdoors, like the Pisgah Forest and Dupont State Park’s waterfalls. And, of course, to experience Asheville itself. This town is a special one, housing the Biltmore Estate, which belonged to a Vanderbilt and whose grounds were designed by none other than Central Park’s iconic landscape architect. It’s also got lots of cute boutiques, music venues and breweries for tours – including the new Sierra Nevada Brewery.
How to Get There
We had a wonderful time at the Bed and Breakfast on Tiffany Hill. Selena, innkeeper, provided a great experience with a gourmet breakfast each morning, beautiful rooms, lovely details at Inn. We visited Hendersonville and Brevard, NC. Adam provided a spectacular tour of the waterfalls, parkway, birding. He made it special for all of us. We are going back again.
This was our second visit to this amazing property. The first time was in the fall, which was just spectacular, and this time in the early spring - just as beautiful, just a different kind of beautiful! The innkeeper, Selena, is a special lady who knows how to make everything just right. Both trips we stayed in the Lexington House and really enjoyed the room. We enjoyed breakfast (which always includes dessert, because as Selena says, "We should always be celebrating something") in our room both times. Dinner was at nearby Brevard both trips. Many great dining options. Great hiking in the area at any level. You won't regret staying here!
Beautiful, relaxing place to stay that feels like home. The inn keeper has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The inn is conveniently located within a short distance from Brevard, Hendersonville, and Asheville. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone traveling to western North Carolina!
This was out 6th visit. Everything is first class, down to every detail. The 3 course breakfast is outstanding. Selena always makes sure that all of our needs and questions are taken care of. We can't wait for another visit.
First timers at a B&B—-we came away spoiled.
The Charlottesville Suite was all anyone could want—spacious, comfortable furnishings, fireplace and wonderful bathroom. We traveled with best friends and had the entire inn to ourselves; we felt perfectly at home playing cards by the fireplace in the living room late into the night. Thoughtful amenities everywhere.
Breakfast was a relaxing and enjoyable event-so much so that we were reluctant to leave the table for our short trip to the Biltmore. Day 1 breakfast was from the savory menu—tasty and just the right amount of food. Day 2 was a sweet day. The maple pecan French toast was delicious but for me, too much sugar for a morning, especially when followed by a coconut dessert. Didn’t stop me from eating every bite of the French toast, mind you!
Husband and I are happy he stumbled upon this lovely place, and we have plans to return when we can take better advantage of the surrounding towns and parks. Thank you, Selena and Shelley, and the rest of the staff, for a memorable getaway.
