The Albemarle inn is a lovely place, in a lovely location, in the great mountain city of Asheville and offered all we needed and more for a great visit. It is convenient to reach all the wonderful Asheville restaurants and sites like the Biltmore House, and yet is in a nice residential area in a lovely, hilly part of the city. The owners and all the staff were warm and welcoming and seemed to go out of their way to make us feel both "at home" and "pampered." The manager, Sabrina, who greeted us was so very informative and friendly- and remained so throughout our visit- and the owner, Cathy, was so helpful and friendly when I made our reservations and we enjoyed meeting her and her husband as they served breakfast on our second morning there. The food at both the breakfasts and evening snacks was wonderful and we enjoyed the fact that we could sit at an individual table where we could -and did-visit with others, but also could easily converse just with each other also. Our first floor Oak Room was very clean, comfortable, and well decorated and had a big window looking out on the front porch and beautiful front lawn with all the blooming spring flowers and trees. I especially loved soaking in the old fashioned claw foot tub and realized how very comfortable they are to recline and relax in! We also appreciated the secluded, off street, and plentiful parking. The Inn is very close to the huge, historic Grove Park Inn Resort and we enjoyed walking up there (admittedly a bit of an up hill jaunt, however) through the lovely spring flowering trees in the "Proximity" neighborhood and taking in the view over the city and up to the surrounding mountains along the way,and especially, from up at that resort-with its huge, amazing rock faced Inn like the old National Park Lodges out west-but then being able to return to the much more personal, but equally lovely, Albemarle Inn down the road. We travel a lot and stay in many B and Bs and rental homes and this is one of the nicest that we have stayed in -and definitely our favorite in Asheville- and we found it very competitively priced also. We definitely plan to return, as we love Asheville and the Albemarle Inn.
