Welcome to the Albemarle Inn, located in Asheville, North Carolina. We invite you to enjoy our lovingly restored 1909 Greek Revival mansion during your visit to Asheville. Stay and allow us to provide you with a relaxing, quiet respite from your hectic and busy world. Located in the tranquil residential Grove Park District of Asheville, our Inn offers the best of Asheville: Biltmore Estate, downtown eateries & nightlife, shopping, the Blue Ridge Parkway, National Parks and Forests, and outdoor sports all within your grasp. A two mile drive from our door places you in the heart of downtown, Biltmore Village and endless activities. Enjoy the Inn's timeless appeal, as you unwind and relax on our veranda, enjoying our gardens in solitude, or the company of each other. Perhaps socialize with other guests of the mansion, while enjoying the morning's first sip of coffee. In the evening, watch the sun set over the nearby mountains while savoring refreshments and genteel conversations, letting go of all your worries as time stands still... We are a 4 diamond AAA rated Inn and a member of Select Registry Inns. Such an honor to have earned these accolades. We hope to see you soon!

My husband and I stayed at Albemarle Inn to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed! The location of inn is perfect for accessing downtown and outdoor activities. Neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. The Inn is very well preserved and beautifully decorated. Our room was comfortable and amazingly quiet. There are a couple of idiosyncrasies of an old historic house -bathroom floor slightly sloped and no bathroom fan ( we opened window briefly)- but they did not decrease our comfort. Breakfast was delicious each day! The staff are friendly and welcoming and go to great lengths to make stay pleasant. Inn was easy to find; plenty of space in two gravel parking lots. Would highly recommend for a weekend or middle of the week getaway!

Property's Favorite Review
We recently visited the Inn for 3 nights and it was FANTASTIC! We visited Asheville in a girls trip and 4 of us stayed in the Garden Room. It has 2 queen beds and one bath, but was spacious enough for us. The innkeeper and staff were so accommodating to any food allergies or dislikes. The breakfasts were out of this world! They consisted of a 2-course meal with all the tea, coffee and juice you can drink. The breakfasts were served in a sunroom that was just delightful. In addition, they offered wine and cookies around 4:30 every evening. It was so nice to have a glass of wine and enjoy sitting on the terrace. Extra towels and really anything else you needed was readily available. We all highly recommend and all agreed we would stay here again!

We stayed for one night while on a road trip. Beautiful old house, well kept. Staff were very nice. Good local restaurants within walking distance along very pleasant residential roads. We had a ground floor room with a disconcertingly large sliding door which opened directly on to the main public area. It was a lovely room, however the bed is too large for the room and consequently awkwardly place. There were no bedside lights. The shower room was fine. The complimentary breakfast was beautifully cooked but was a set meal. There was no alternative choice offered. The free wine served early evening was a pleasant surprise and very welcome.

Thank you for your review and compliments on our staff and breakfast. Our ground floor room boast original pocket doors, which is the unique part of the first floor rooms. As this is a historic property, we make sure that the rooms have comfortable furnishings which sometimes have to be placed in certain ways to accommodate the shape of the room. This room has a beautiful updated walk in shower for guest comfort. We do offer alternative dishes for breakfast, if guests will communicate about their personal breakfast needs. We hope you will consider staying with us again.

We absolutely loved this Inn. The decor and furnishings were lovely and the bed was so comfortable! Fresh flowers throughout the house were a wonderful touch and we loved the original woodwork in the house. The staff was friendly and helpful and assisted us in finding shopping and dinner restaurants in the area. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. We will be back!

Lovely place and a really comfy bed. Quiet settings and a great yard to sit out in. The breakfast was tasty and just the right amount. It felt like traditional southern hospitality. Well worth the stay.

Never to leave... My husband and I had the most gracious, lovely experience staying at the Albermarle Inn in the historic, singular Grove Park District of Asheville. You can anticipate a staff of the loveliest hosts with a magnificent, calm inn from the turn of the century. There's a sumptuous breakfast daily with consideration to any dietary needs. The staff take personal interest in what else they can do for you. Time on their high-ceilinged eranda is like noneother -- Listen for birdsong. Thank you to Cheryl, Shannon, Sarah and Lori for a stay anyone could only imagine. Five stars.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of a trip to Western North Carolina. The property is lovely--we spent some time sitting on the veranda during a gentle rain listening to birds. Our room was very nice with a very comfortable bed, lots of space, and a great shower. The breakfasts were very good, a tasty and attractive starter followed by hash and eggs and waffles when we were there. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The location is pretty close to restaurants, drug stores, and Downtown Asheville.
