We booked this for a long weekend and were so pleased with this stay. The owners and staff are gracious and welcoming. The breakfasts are an excellent way to start the day, the property is lovely and spacious and green, and the location is easily accessible for any Asheville areas you want to explore. Paul was very generous in his ideas for places to eat and explore. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again.
The owners Paul & his wife were the best hosts. Friendly & full of great information on area. The other staff members were very friendly & helpful as well helping us find different areas. We stayed in Glenda, it was absolutely beautiful. Spotless throughout the entire house inside & out. Gorgeous views of the gardens, everywhere you looked was another rose bush, huge magnolia tree, fountains, I could go on & on. Paul's 4 course breakfast is something we'll certainly never forget. We're still talking about it. I woke up one night & thought I heard people talking. We were the only 2 guests that night so who knows however the history of the haunts was what helped us choose this gorgeous B&B. We will definitely be back next year. I promise you won't be disappointed staying here. Lisa & Joely…
Dear Paul, Mirlin, and staff, Thank you again for your hospitality and kindness during our stay. We had a wonderful time and immensely enjoyed the amenities and services at the Reynolds Mansion. The breakfast was superb and the atmosphere was warm and relaxing. We also captured the breathtaking views in a few photos to share with our family and friends at home. Until we meet again... So long and thanks, Steve & Cathy Samimi
Our first visit to Asheville was made all the sweeter by Paul and Mirlin at The Reynolds Mansion. Paul was incredibly accommodating and helpful prior to our arrival; I asked if he had a certain fruit juice (very important for me and I was prepared to bring my own) and he replied that he would have it for me during our stay. Upon arrival Paul greeted us with a cold drink and lots of tips of where to go and what to see. We stayed two nights in the Claudette room and found it very comfortable and quiet. We loved having the upstairs porch to use. Paul’s talent in the kitchen should not go unmentioned. Four-course Breakfasts were eagerly anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed! We found meeting other guests at the breakfast table a lovely aspect to our visit. We would not hesitate to stay at The Reynolds mansion again when we’re next in Asheville.…
The gardens are gorgeous! The mansion is clean and the food is wonderful! They were able to accomodate a gluten free breakfast for us without an issue. The only problem being that if you are on the 2nd or 3rd floors there is no elevator but Paul happily carried our bags up for us.
I must have stayed at a different place than the rest of you. The Reynold’s Mansion’s grounds are unkempt, the grass in the walking areas are ankle-high, and there are no gardens or even landscaping that exists. The buildings and porches are missing half their paint and the paint that is left is peeling right off. The Blue Hydrangea Room that I stayed in had holes in the wood flooring. The breakfast was average and much better could be had in finer establishments such as the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, which listed at the same price I paid for the Reynold’s Mansion. And the only thing Southern that you will find about the hospitality here is that the innkeeper is from South Africa. I also didn’t find Paul, the innkeeper, to be a particularly warm or inviting host. Generally, a big let down for $350/night.…
Just a short 10 minute drive north of Asheville is this magnificent B&B. Set on a hill with marvellous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The breakfast experience was simply amazing, four courses so beautifully presented. It is run by a South African couple, both very nice, and the husband Paul does the breakfasts from what I understand. The home is full of antiques and during the day there is old music playing in the hallways which adds so much to the experience. Lovely bedrooms with albeit tight bathrooms. We stayed in the Linda room, and it was lovely. Only annoyance was the pilot light for the gas fireplace was noisy. If I was to stay there again, I would ask if it could be turned off.
What a gem of a place to stay just outside the downtown area of Asheville but still convenient to all major attractions! The inn owner, Paul has created an amazing experience for his guests! From the personalized check-in process to the well appointed and serviced rooms and shared spaces, Paul ensured our needs were met. In addition, he’s an accomplished chef who prepared an outstanding, six course breakfast daily which left us so filled that we were able to skip lunch! The inn is a beautiful historic home with so many wonderful pieces of furniture and art. It’s wrap-around, two story porch is a wonderful place to relax after a busy day of sight seeing. Sit on the west side of the porch for an amazing sunset view! We highly recommend this lovely B&B and plan to visit again!
An enchanted place! A historical building! A majestic location! The music, the food, the company of the hosts... the sunsets! Stay at this place, enjoy every moment! You will have no regrets, you will create only wonderful, unforgettable memories. We are very grateful and appreciative of the hard work put into making these memories possible. Thank you, thank you!
The Reynolds Mansion is a little hidden gem in Ashville. Stayed for a weekend. So much better than staying at cookie-cutter hotel. Rooms are well appointed with personality. Stayed in "All That Jazz" in carriage house. The breakfast was probably the best one I've ever had. Paul and Mirlin are perfect hosts. We enjoyed the family style breakfast and chatting with fellow guests. Reynolds Mansion will be our "go to" for trips to Ashville.
