A classic turn-of-the-century Southern mansion on the National Register, the Albemarle Inn, AAA Four Diamonds for 14 years in a row, offers elegance in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Guests are greeted in the main parlor of the Asheville, North Carolina bed and breakfast which glows with recently restored oak wainscoting. An intricately carved staircase leads to period guest rooms, appointed with antiques, fresh flowers, and cozy robes.
The morning begins with coffee or tea by the arts and crafts style marble fireplace, followed by a gourmet breakfast on the enclosed, plant-filled sunporch. Late afternoon offers the opportunity to relax on the massive stone veranda overlooking lush gardens while enjoying refreshments and conversation. Featured in National Geographic Traveler and More Magazine, our Asheville bed and breakfast is minutes from the Biltmore Estate, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and historic downtown Asheville. Rooms with two-person whirlpool tub, fireplace or private balcony available.

In the summer enjoy your refreshments on the veranda overlooking our beautifully landscaped grounds and award winning English gardens.
Hors d’oeuvres may include our toasty caramelized onion tartlets or eggplant crostini with goat cheese as well as a variety of cheeses and crackers.
