Bed & Breakfast in Historic Asheville

An inn for every kind of Asheville adventurer

Outdoor thrill-seekers, history buffs, and art and music aficionados alike all feel at home in our expansive Arts and Crafts style bed and breakfast. It’s the perfect spot to rest your head or put your feet up after a day’s adventure! We’ve curated the main house, guest rooms, and suites to offer a special yet relaxing home base that’s only mere steps from gourmet restaurants, minutes from the center of town, and a short drive from endless mountain escapades in every direction. 

We’d love to help you plan your days here, and we can help you curate adventures as thoughtfully as we do the inn furnishings and three-course breakfasts. Is your four-legged friend a part of the adventure? Excellent. We have a pet-friendly suite (or three) that we think you and your dog will love!

Welcome to 1900 Inn on Montford

A one-of-a-kind Asheville Inn

Indulge, relax, and enjoy. That’s what we want all of our guests to do. Experience the warmth, luxury, and personal touches of one of the most charming bed and breakfasts in Asheville’s historic district. Step onto the bed and breakfast grounds and you might notice that there’s a story behind everything you see here. We’ll tell you those stories and show you around, but first, enjoy a scratch-made cookie or a locally roasted espresso in the beautiful light of the inn’s sunroom. Once you’re refreshed from your travels and settled into your plush accommodations, wander back to the spacious main house. Take a tour, find a cozy corner to savor with a book, or enjoy connecting with other guests by stoked fire in the winter or a  breezy summer porch.

Positively Memorable

“Positively memorable in all respects, a stand-out bed and breakfast offering thoughtful amenities, comfortable and relaxing elegance and a centralized location to everything Ashville! Three course breakfasts were delectable, impeccably presented and creative renditions well beyond the norm. Freshly baked cookies, commercial coffee units set up in a sun-filled side room and other treats further satiated travelers. We stayed in the Fitzgerald Room, which depicted high-end comfort, a bathroom that will knock your socks off, and featured incredible attention to detail, robes, chocolate, beverages, fireplace…! Cannot forget to mention the full bluegrass band playing for an hour in the entry upon our Saturday night arrival, what FUN! Also enjoyed decorative aspects within the inn, including touches of the arts disbursed throughout. We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts over the years, but this one rises to the TOP!”

Lovely experience

“My wife and I went for an anniversary getaway and stayed in the Thomas Wolfe room. The Inn proofed to be luxurious and relaxing, from the house to the food to the hosts, all lovely. We felt very cared for. The happy hours and Saturday music were quite quaint, too.
We will be back:)”
