It's hard to stay at a bed and breakfast when you are gluten intolerant. While you may love the accommodations and quaint rooms, breakfast is usually lacking. Bed and breakfasts are famous for their country breakfasts, most of which are filled with gluten. Thankfully, I found a gluten-free friendly bed and breakfast that I will be returning to frequently.
The Pinecrest Inn is a lovely bed and breakfast, and the inn keepers go above and beyond to make sure that being gluten free doesn't take away from your bed and breakfast experience.
Every afternoon I was greeted with a gluten-free treat from a local bakery. I enjoyed a brownie, cupcakes, and even a mini-chocolate carrot cake. All delicious, and all unbelievably gluten-free.
Pinecrest breakfasts are out of this world. Every morning I knew where my place was at the table, because there was something different on the bread plate. Sometimes it was a gluten-free blueberry muffin. Another time it was a mini sweet bread from Dolci di Maria, a local Asheville gluten-free bakery. On the morning that we had yogurt parfaits, they used Udi’s Gluten-Free Granola for everyone’s parfait, not just mine. They made sure that the frittata was naturally gluten free and that I had Udi’s Gluten-Free Bread to go along with it. On French toast morning, I wondered if I’d be eating eggs with a side of Udi’s toast, but they created gluten-free French toast with Udi’s Gluten-Free Bread just for me, complete with fresh peaches.
Pinecrest Inn gets a five palm rating and two paws up from the Gluten-Free Cat on food alone. But the actual accommodations were beautiful and comfortable, giving us the perfect weekend retreat.
