“We had the greatest experience at the 1900 Inn on Montford. We booked the whole Inn for our guest for our small wedding. Willy and Shawnie were amazing and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great visit. Everything about our stay was wonderful. The breakfast every day was DELICIOUS. Everyone who stayed with us has asked to go back at least once a year to have fun all over again! We can’t wait to go back!“
Really wonderful bed and breakfast with outstanding hospitality & amenities
“We stayed at 1900 Inn on Montford for a babymoon this past weekend based on a recommendation from a coworker. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Shawnie, Willy and Stacey were gracious hosts and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and felt welcome. The 3 course breakfasts were absolutely amazing, especially the chocolate croissant and tiramisu. Also, the happy hour with bluegrass music and beverages was so much fun. We really enjoyed making our own cappuccinos using the gourmet coffee maker and eating a lot of fresh baked cookies as well. When we left, Shawnie and Willy even gave us a very thoughtful gift for our baby. We will definitely be back to visit them and appreciate such a great experience..“
Great Asheville Getaway
“From the Welcome received upon your arrival, to the scrumptious three course breakfast prepared with all fresh ingredients, Shawnie & Willie aim to please! Great facility with a great staff! My wife and I look forward to our return visit soon!“
