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
My husband & I were headed to western North Carolina to participate in a Waterfalls & Wine excursion. We needed to be in Brevard by 10:30 AM so we decided to stay in the area the night before. We were delighted with our stay at Bed & Breakfast on Tiffany Hill. The accommodations were superb as was the breakfast the following morning.
We stayed in the Seaside Suite & it was lovely. The room was decorated in a seaside motif with aqua & blue. The bathroom was large & very functional.
Just returned from our third (or fourth, maybe?--it's so relaxing you forget everything) visit to Tiffany Hill B and B. Selena, Kenese and the balance of her staff never disappoint with hospitality, accommodations, gourmet breakfasts and fun! We had another guest bring a guitar for impromptu music in the living area; the fireplace warmed us after raining days shopping and touring; we brought along a new high school graduate granddaughter who was welcomed and made to feel extra special each of our four days there.
The Seaside suite...over the top, great comfort, wonderful views, bath has a 6 foot shower you'll want to stay in forever, and its right on the main floor (no steps) by dining room Quiet, near the sitting area and fireplace (for reading or napping) and central hallway. We've made great acquaintances around the dining table and now go out to eat together when we're in NC, and rebook similar dates together annually. Great location near Brevard, Hendersonville, other small communities, the Pisgah Forest and all that Asheville offers...each day is an adventure...but you'll love coming back "home" at the end of each day. No matter which suite you choose, you will be surprised at what each offers. The breakfasts? Out of this world...and Selena's welcome and stories are most entertaining! You'll love it.

This a purpose built B&B, constructed to the highest standards. The inn keeper-owner spent some considerable time studying the best B&B's, she told us, then found a gorgeous property near Asheville on which to build her dream business. The care she took shows; this place is absolutely beautiful. The suite we rented for four nights is spacious, very comfortable, with a fireplace, and a huge bathroom, complete with separate bath tub and shower, and two lavatories. Best of all, the lavatories are each equipped with a cabinet on which you can put all your toiletries-- a pet peeve of ours at many fancy hotels, where you're somehow expected to put all your stuff on the floor. The bedroom is well equipped with cabinets to store your clothes; we like to unpack for more than a one night stay. The breakfasts are amazing, multiple course gourmet affairs, served family style. Guests are all seated together at an elegant dining table, dine together, and thus get to know each other. That's part of the fun of B&B's, to our thinking. We've made many friends sitting around just such tables at B&B's in North America and the UK particularly. The kitchen serves as a "test kitchen" for the cooks' new creations, and they were all superb. Best of all, the owner is a gracious Southerner, eager to provide advice.
My fiance (now wife) searched online for a B&B in which to stay that was in the North Carolina mountains. She narrowed it down to 3 and we both agreed to book with Tiffany Hill after looking at the website. We also saw that they offered a package deal for a getaway wedding. This option suited us well so we also were married there in an "Elopement" ceremony and it was beautiful! Everyone and everything there was top-notch. We would highly recommend this establishment to anyone. They went "over and above" in their service and we have already booked two more stays.
Everything about the Inn on Tiffany Hill is superb, from the owner, the (nearly) new house, the beautiful rooms and accommodations, the three-course breakfasts, the staff, the walking paths on the property, Tux the cat and attention to the details. Selena will not disappoint you, because she is living out her 25 year dream to own and manage a B&B that is first-class!
