The inn is beautiful. We stayed in the carriage house. It was an exceptional room with great ambiance and a very home-like feel. Shawnie and Willie are exceptional hosts, making every experience better than expected. The breakfasts were 5 star, Shawnie's cookies are amazing and the daily socials at 6pm with the other guests felt like we had known each other for years, not to mention the concert level performances by the musicians on Saturday! I cannot think of another B&B experience that comes close to staying with Shawnie and Willie at 1900. A truly wonderful anniversary experience. We will most certainly be back. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Clean, comfortable, and convenient to downtown Asheville. They are genial hosts. He makes and serves over-the-top breakfasts and she keeps you supplied with multiple versions of her homemade cookies. Their advice on what to do and where to eat in Asheville is top notch.

Thank you for your stay with us at 1900 Inn on Montford to celebrate an important birthday and a wonderful anniversary! Knowing that this was a sort of homecoming to Asheville makes this visit even more special. We're honored that you chose our Inn as your home base! We're happy that our Fitzgerald Room was to your liking. It really is something special, with the walk-in rain shower with starlit floors and the luxurious Chromatherapy tub. It's pretty neat that the tub actually fills up from the ceiling, isn't it?! Thanks for mentioning our delicious cookies and wonderful breakfasts! Such kind words from wonderful guests who are world travelers like you are humbling to us and we sincerely hope to have the chance to host you again someday soon! The Team at 1900 Inn on Montford

We visited this Inn in early November and enjoyed every detail. Willie and Shawnie were such great hosts but felt like friends immediately. We stayed in the Rosetti suite which is located in the carriage house a few steps away from the Inn It was amazing! I loved the bubble jacuzzi and my husband used the steam shower after ours hikes. The breakfasts and cookies are amazing. They also have Expresso machines fir guests to use. Loved our stay and will be back. Thanks again

Thank you for your stay with us at 1900 Inn on Montford! We're delighted that our Rosetti Suite, located in the Carriage House, was to your liking! We like to say that it is the perfect place to escape to if you're looking for a stay that has both spacious accommodations and privacy! Even though it is as you mentioned, just steps from the Main House of the Inn, it has a private entrance and enclosed garden space with a table and chairs. Perfect to have your breakfast delivered to the Suite to enjoy it there! (Although we are happy that you came to have breakfast at the community table on your last day!) And you visited during some of our last warm days! Glad you got a little porch time. We're honored when guests leave as friends, and we do hope you'll be back again soon!

Such a wonderful stay at the Inn on Montford. The breakfast was amazing! The availability of cookies, coffee, cappuccino etc. was also so nice. If we ever come back to Asheville we will definitely stay here if at all possible. We stayed in the Fitzgerald and it was a good experience. Willy and Shawnie were so sweet and went above and beyond to make our stay special.

We're so glad that you stayed with us at 1900 Inn on Montford for your getaway to Asheville! Our Fitzgerald Suite is located in the Main House and is a favorite of our guests. There's something special about the ensuite bath: with the walk-in rain shower (complete with starlit floors!) and the the luxurious Chromatherapy tub (that fills from the celing!)...perfect for a relaxing escape. In addition, all of our beds are made up with Comphy Company spa sheets which we think add to the comfort of your stay! Thanks for the mention of our breakfasts and our 24-hour set up of coffee and Shawnie's cookies! It's a fun way to pamper and delight our guests with seasonal offerings. We enjoyed having you here and do hope that if your travels lead you back to Asheville someday that we'll have the chance to host your stay again! The Team at 1900 Inn on Montford

We just love staying here! The pet friendly carriage house rooms are ideal; private and super easy for pet care. Willy and Shawnie even helped us arrange a great pet sitter for our spoiled pups! The bed and bedding is so comfy and the breakfasts so delicious that we come back year after year! The dedicated Innkeepers Willy & Shawnie went above and beyond to deliver us gorgeous vegan fare for breakfast each morning to meet our special dietary needs! On our last morning when we had to travel early before breakfast time, they even packed us a nice "brown bag" picnic lunch for our travels. An added bonus is that the neighborhood is just walking distance to downtown Asheville and includes a wonderful Caribbean restaurant just 2 blocks away, a gorgeous and interesting historic cemetery perfect for a serene morning walk just 3-4 blocks away. We just can’t say enough about it all except that we do and will continue to return year after year!

We're dedicated to helping you make the most of your time away and to have the best stay! Thanks for being a part of what we do here at Inn on Montford.

We hosted our daughter's wedding weekend at 1900 Inn on Montford and could not have been more pleased. The innkeepers, Willie and Shawnie, are the most gracious hosts and went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect. We had three rooms for five nights, booked the entire inn for three of those nights, and hosted the welcome party and wedding at the inn. Obviously, we spent a lot of time working with Willie and Shawnie. They were so helpful to our wedding coordinator and made outstanding recommendations for local vendors, especially the musicians they helped us book. The inn was lovely and provided the ideal backdrop for our events and our guests. Shawnie's amazing breakfasts were the perfect way to start our days, and her daily selection of freshly baked cookies is beyond compare! I highly recommend the 1900 Inn on Montford - you will not be disappointed!

Beautiful historic home, well maintained in convenient location. We walked to downtown, botanical gardens and nearby restaurants. Inn itself was charming and well appointed. We enjoyed coffee bar and homemade cookies! The Saturday night music ensemble in the parlor was delightful. You can tell the inn is a labor of love for the owners, Willy and Shawnie. We would return at first opportunity.

Thank you so much for your recent stay with us at 1900 Inn on Montford! Having the chance to getaway, to see other scenery and unplug is so important, especially when you have important and high stress work! We're glad that you found our B&B this October to do just that. We're glad that you enjoyed many things about the Inn: Shawnie's cookies, the coffee bar, and our Saturday Night Bluegrass music in the parlor! It is a fun tradition that we think is a great way to celebrate the local music scene and a real treat for our guests. Thank you for your stay. We hope that you'll return again in the future!

I just can't say enough good things about this B&B. It is super clean, the rooms are big and the location is great. What sets this B&B apart from others: 1) the hosts....Willie and Shawnie are awesome. They truly make you feel at home and Willie gave us great suggestions for hikes and restaurants. They were all great suggestions. They both certainly have the personality for a B&B. We chatted with Willie so much. He was very informative and entertaining!! 2) The Inn is super comfy yet beautiful. So many times B&Bs are beautiful but not real comfortable. Not only are the rooms comfortable (love the bed/sheets/towels) but the public area as well. We found ourselves spending more time downstairs in the coffee/cookie area because it was just so comfortable. BTW fresh baked cookies were the best. 3) Breakfast each morning was super. Additionally, Willie packed us a great breakfast the morning we left so we could get an early start. It was not your run-of-the-mill box breakfast. He made it fresh for us that morning. Talk about going above and beyond!! Gosh....I could go on and on!! I highly recommend this B&B!!

Thank you for your recent stay with us at 1900 Inn on Montford! We're glad that you found our suggestions for things to see and do and eat helpful. Part of being an innkeeper is getting to share our city with our guests. And to be able to share our favorite things and places, giving you the inside scoop is fun for us. The weather was perfect during your time with us for daily walks through the neighborhood and to the historic Riverside Cemetery. You picked a perfect time of the year to be in Asheville! This fall has been outstanding. It's a great compliment to us that you found the inn to be simultaneously beautiful and comfortable. Our constant goal is for the guest experience to be exemplary. We want you to feel at home in every inch of the inn! The sunroom where the coffee station and cookies are displayed is a favorite spot for us and guests alike! We were more than happy to pack breakfast to go for you on the day that your travels started early, and we're glad that you enjoyed it! Thank you for choosing our B&B for your stay! You all were engaging and fun to be around. We hope you'll return to Asheville and to be able to host you for another stay someday soon. The Team at 1900 Inn on Montford

We spent 5 days at the Inn in the middle of October at the height of fall foiliage. The Inn keepers Willie and Shawnee Gruber are fantastic. They clearly love what they’re doing and so do their guests. Every person who dreams of opening a B&B should be required to spend a couple of weeks there as the owners would provide a wealth of successful tips and knowledge on all aspects of their business. Their three course breakfasts are fantastic. What we particularly enjoyed was their ability to modify classic “high fat brunch dishes” to include a melody of vegetables without compromising the integrity of the dish. Their knowledge of things to do and where to eat is as comprehensive as one could imagine. The Inn is extremely comfortable and clean. In addition, it is walking distance to town and several very local wonderful restaurants which we frequently patronized since we didn’t rent a drive and we were exhausted since we hiked every day. A shout out to these three: Tall John, All Day Darling and Nine Mile. Reviews to appear on their sites. And a special shout out to Asheville Hiking Tours, who showed us some of the most beautiful scenery of the area. A special note to Shawnee who bakes a large variety of fresh cookies regularly and has them packaged in the sun room with two coffee machines and a variety of beverages available for all guests. The cookies are OUTRAGEOUS! The Inn is waking distance to town and their service and products (including their bathroom products) are as close to perfection as one could expect. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone visiting Asheville without reservation. Sue NYC

Thank you for such a great review of your stay with us at 1900 Inn on Montford! You all picked an exceptionally terrific October to come visit Asheville, and you timed peak leaf season just right. It has been a perfect season and having guests like your group made our busy season fly by. As Innkeepers, it is fun for us to have the chance to get to know you and it makes us feel great to see guests enjoying their stay, both at the inn and in Asheville, so much. The hikes that you took with our partner Asheville Hiking Company in the mountains and to hunt for waterfalls sounded just perfect. We're glad that you got to see the beautiful scenery that surrounds our adopted hometown. We're glad that you tried out so many of our neighborhood places and got to be what must be one of the first to try Tall John's as the new kid on the block. We're lucky to have such a great mix of places to dine within walking distance from the inn. In fact, our historic neighborhood is close to pretty much everything and is a beautiful setting four our inn to be located! Thank you for making a special note about Shawnie's cookies and our breakfasts. We love what we do and are happy that you were a part of our October this year. We look forward to your next visit!
