These Asheville Airbnbs Are Perfect for Your Next Bike Tour

Asheville is a prime destination for travelers looking to bring their bicycles along: each season offers stunning natural beauty, bicycle routes range from leisurely to highly challenging, and the cuisine and beer is some of the best you can find east of the Mississippi.

While all of these qualities make it a sweet spot for a day trip, to get the most out of Asheville’s extensive trails and bike-friendly streets, we encourage you to stay for at least a few nights, or even plan a week-long Asheville bike tour.

If you’ve chosen a DIY Bicycle Tour, you already have the best routes in hand—but the choice of lodging is completely yours. Our area is thankfully home to some extra-special Airbnbs, as well as charming, cyclist-friendly Bed & Breakfasts with friendly hosts that will help you more fully enjoy Asheville. Here is a selection of our favorites.

The Hobbit Knoll

These hosts left no stone unturned in creating the beautiful, comfortable Hobbit Knoll, which is built into a hillside on an 8-acre private property. The property also houses a number of treehouses for rent, but guests find the knoll to be secluded and romantic, and the property leaves plenty of room for exploration! Plus, you’ll enjoy some of the best views an Airbnb can offer an Asheville visitor.

Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary on bicycles or you just have a taste for luxury, The Omni Grove Park Inn offers everything at the highest standard. From the gorgeous, 150-acre property in the Blue Ridge Mountains to the fine food, you’ll feel right at home with a glass of champagne, a cheese board, and a spectacular view after a long day on the trails. You might even plan a day off from cycling to enjoy the 43,000 SF spa, which, with its subterranean caves and therapeutic waterfalls, has long been known as one of the top resort spas in the US.

Cambria Hotel

Downtown ● Walk to restaurants, bars, & shopping

If being among the city’s hustle and bustle energizes you, you’ll love the Cambria Hotel in the heart of downtown Asheville. The rooftop restaurant and bar, Hemingway’s Cuba, overlooks downtown nightlife and offers a spectacular view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. From this spot, it’s also an easy walk to the South Side of downtown, where you can enjoy many local brews, local barbecue, and more.
