17 Charming Bed And Breakfasts In Asheville

If you are looking for local charm and warm hospitality, we recommend a stay at one of the many bed and breakfasts in Asheville. After all, Asheville is known for its abundance of B&Bs, from historical properties in Montford to a Queen Anne stay near the Biltmore Estate.

Bed & Breakfasts are a great way to experience local Asheville charm in a historic setting and a perfect option if traveling for a romantic getaway.

You’ll love the hospitality of Asheville B&Bs with everything from friendly hosts to cozy accommodations, and a genuine desire to make your stay unforgettable.

So, please grab a cup of tea and let us guide you through some of the most charming bed and breakfasts in Asheville.

Map of Asheville Bed & Breakfasts

We found this map very interesting because it really shows just how many Asheville B&Bs are north of downtown. There are so many bed and breakfasts located in North Asheville and Montford. And we get it! The houses are beautiful and historical, and the streets are tree-lined and walkable.

Charming Bed and Breakfasts In Asheville

And now onto our list! You can expect tasty morning meals and comfortable rooms at the properties highlighted in our guide to Asheville Bed and Breakfasts. Each property on this list offers unique charm and warm hospitality.

1900 Inn on Montford

If ‘Saturday night porch music‘ is, well, music to your ears, look no further than the 1900 Inn! The music moves inside when it’s cooler out, but there is nothing better than a warm summer evening porch session.

Apart from that, you’ll find a constant rotation of cookies inside, top-notch hospitality and unmatched attention to detail.

There are 8 guest rooms at the 1900 Inn between the main house and the carriage house. Amenities differ by room, but you’ll find everything from private room access, in-room massages and dog-friendly rooms.

The 1900 Inn is located on Montford Ave near Nine Mile, which is one of our favorite restaurants in Asheville. You can also walk to downtown Asheville from here. It’s definitely a top bed and breakfast in Asheville.

Applewood Manor

You’ll find that the charm runs deep at the Applewood Manor in Asheville. The 1912 New England Style Colonial Revival is tucked in Montford and offers an exceptional stay.

The Bed and Breakfast is run by a husband and wife couple. Prior to moving to Asheville and taking over the property, she worked as a commercial interior designer in NYC. As you can already imagine, you’ll appreciate the attention to detail and fun decor.

Each of the six rooms at Applewood Manor features a Duxiana king-size bed and Sferra linens. Because there are so few rooms, you can rest assured that you can find a peaceful spot or two to really get away. And if you are looking for an adventure, be sure to rent a bike from their fleet of 3T Exploro bikes.

The rooms at Applewood Manor are all named after apple varieties. It’s pretty fitting considering there are a ton of apple orchards near Asheville.

Chestnut Street Inn

Chestnut Street Inn is our pick for you if you are looking for a delightful stay at a local Bed and Breakfast. Not only is it in an excellent location, just up the road from Liberty House Coffee and a quick walk to Trader Joe’s, but the hospitality and luxury feel are sure to impress.

The Chestnut Street Inn has seven rooms in the main inn and a cottage that serves as a two-room suite.

Rest assured that breakfast is the most important part of the day at Chesnut Street Inn. You can either enjoy breakfast at a large communal table or small 2 or 4-top tables around the property. They also offer the option for a picnic breakfast with advanced notice. Breakfast is served at 9 daily and includes coffee from local Pisgah Coffee Roasters.

What we really love about this property are the awesome packages they offer. For example, the ‘wellness package’ includes a 90-minute Salt Water Flotation experience, $60 credit to Plant Restaurant (one of the best vegan restaurants in Asheville), a cold-pressed juice from Elements and a yoga class from Asheville Yoga Center. It’s such a great combination of goodies from nearby businesses and is truly an experience.

Blind Tiger

Just across from Chestnut Street Inn is another spot worth a mention– the Blind Tiger Hotel. While they have positioned themselves more as a hotel than a bed & breakfast, we didn’t want to leave Blind Tiger off of this list.

You may already be familiar with the property if you have ever stayed at the 1889 Whitegate Inn & Cottage. It was purchased by Lark Hotels and converted into the Blind Tiger Hotel. But, do not expect it to look the same! Blind Tiger is gorgeously appointed and absolutely not what you’d imagine when you hear ‘B&B’.

Photos: Blind Tiger

As far as food goes, The Blind Tiger offers a complimentary toast and yogurt bar in the mornings. They also have locally sourced snacks and beverages available, and you can borrow picnic blankets and baskets as needed. Blind Tiger does not have a restaurant on the premises.

Although you’re not directly downtown, you’ll easily be able to walk to all the Charlotte Street establishments Asheville is known for including Liberty CafeOWL Bakery, Bone and Broth, Taco Temple and Jettie Rae’s Oyster House to name a few.

Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn and Spa

Less than a mile from downtown Asheville, you’ll love the AAA Four Diamond Select Registry Property Abbington Green. This quintessential bed & breakfast was built in the Colonial Revival style. 

Abbington Green boasts a collection of individually designed suites all named for various spots around London, like Eaton Square, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. You’ll find antique furnishings, gas fireplaces and some are even pet-friendly.

Photos: Abbington Green

You’ll love Abbington Green’s locally-sourced breakfasts served on crystal and china. What an elegant way to start your day in Asheville!

As far as location goes, you are just a short walk to Nine Mile (an awesome Caribbean restaurant!), Tall John’s and even the outdoor amphitheater where the Montford Park Players perform.

Cedar Crest Inn

Situated on a three-acre property near Biltmore Village, the Cedar Crest Inn is a darling bed and breakfast in Asheville. It’s located in a historic Queen Victorian “pink lady” mansion from 1891.

Photos: Cedar Crest Inn

You’ll find a two-course breakfast, afternoon wine, free parking, tea, coffee and freshly baked cookies every day. They have a variety of rooms featuring everything from traditional Victorian decor to more modern decor.

The Cedar Crest Inn is the closest bed and breakfast to the Biltmore House. It’s also very close to downtown Asheville and serves as an excellent home base for your next Asheville adventure.

Carolina Bed and Breakfast

The arts & craft style Carolina Bed and Breakfast is right at home in Asheville’s Montford neighborhood. There you’ll find a charming and cozy retreat, complete with walkable tree-lined streets and a large front porch with gliders and a swing.

Photos: Carolina Bed & Breakfast

As far as location goes, we love Montford! It’s one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Asheville. The heart of downtown is only a 15-minute walk to the Carolina Bed & Breakfast.

What you’ll love most, though, is the food! Whether it’s the delicious breakfast or the sweet treat before bed, you are sure to be delighted.

1899 Wright Inn & Carriage House

Located in the heart of Montford, the 1899 Wright Inn is a gorgeous property both inside and out. The Wright Inn is an authentically restored George F. Barber Queen Anne Victorian Mansion. It’s located between residential houses on a tree-lined street in quiet Montford.

You’ll find the tastiest of baked goods and the perfect place to call home during your Asheville stay. The Wright Inn even has pet-friendly rooms for your furry friends.

You can expect a scratch-made breakfast, cookies, soda, tea and coffee. They also have an evening social hour with an assortment of local beer, wine and charcuterie.

Though it’s not an official stop on the trolley, it’s on the route. In fact, the trolley pulls off in front to give a few details about it. From what we understand, the owners will even arrange your very own trolley pickup from the property.

Bent Creek Lodge

The Bent Creek Lodge is the only B&B on our list that is in South Asheville. It’s actually a pretty interesting spot because it’s really close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the NC Arboretum. You’ll also find trails right out your door.

Photos: Bent Creek Lodge

Bent Creek Lodge is a great option if you are looking for something a bit out of town and with an outdoor feel. It’s also in the perfect location to enjoy our day trip itinerary to Pisgah Inn on the parkway.

If you don’t feel like adventuring out for the day, you can stay in and enjoy the fireplace in the great room and a large deck overlooking the mountains.

The Lodge has 10 guest rooms on 3 different levels, each decorated in a different North Carolina theme. Complimentary water, coffee, tea, and snacks are left out on the kitchen bar. Wine and beer are also available.

Black Walnut Bed & Breakfast Inn

Another Montfored charmer, the Black Walnut Bed & Breakfast Inn is such a great place to call home on your next trip to Asheville. The inn has 8 guest rooms, with six in the main home and two suites in the Carriage House. All rooms are dog-friendly and all but one have a fireplace.

Albemarle Inn

Located near the Grove Park Inn in North Asheville, the Albemarle Inn is located in a 1909 Greek Revival mansion. The AAA Four Diamond bed and breakfast offers a quiet and romantic getaway to Asheville.

Breakfast is served at individual tables for two instead of a group table. You can also opt for room-service breakfast trays if you prefer. When the weather is nice you can enjoy breakfast in the garden and on the veranda.

Photos: Albemarle Inn

As far as location goes, there isn’t too much within walking distance. It’s safely tucked in the Grove-Park Sunset neighborhood but is a quick drive to restaurants and shops. Albemarle Inn is a quick 5-minute drive to downtown Asheville. It’s also close to Town Mountain Road which eventually connects to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We love taking the parkway north and spending time at Mount Mitchell State Park.

It’s a pet-friendly property and serves as a great spot for a small Asheville wedding or even an elopement.

Princess Anne Hotel

The Princess Anne Hotel has the charm of a B&B but the privacy of a hotel. The rooms are a bit more modern than what you’d find in a typical bed and breakfast (which isn’t a bad thing!)

The 16-suite 1920s-era house is located in the Charlotte Street neighborhood just north of downtown Asheville. The property will take you back to a simpler time in the quiet neighborhood setting, with a quaint on-site restaurant and a peaceful garden. There’s even an old elevator and creaky floors— it’s a historical site, after all!

Photos: Princess Anne Hotel

One of the highlights of the Princess Anne Hotel is its inviting common areas. The elegant dining room serves a complimentary gourmet breakfast each morning, featuring a selection of freshly prepared dishes using locally sourced ingredients.

Be sure to enjoy their complimentary afternoon wine and hor d’oeuvres in the afternoons. And if you are local, North Carolina residents can enjoy a 10% discount on available rooms and suites.

Sweet Biscuit Inn

Tucked in the Kenilworth neighborhood of Asheville, the Sweet Biscuit Inn offers an exceptional amount of charm and hospitality. The Inn resides in a seven-bedroom 1915 Colonial Revival home. There’s an additional Carriage House that is both dog and kid-friendly.

Photos: Sweet Biscuit Inn

Expect a delicious three-course breakfast each morning that is vegetarian-friendly. It can be made vegan or gluten-free with notice. And if you have plans for an early-morning adventure, just give them notice and they’ll have breakfast packaged up and ready to go.

Sweet BIscuit Inn has a refreshment station available all day with coffee, tea, water and candy when needed.
