Bed & Breakfast in Historic Asheville

With a close eye on the health crisis, we are tentatively reopening our doors for bookings. We’ve enjoyed our downtime catching up on projects around the Inn, but we’re ready and excited to open our doors again — with every precaution. Curious how we’re keeping our guests and community safe? Read this blog to learn more about the precautions and policies we’ve put into place to make sure we can all enjoy ourselves as well as stay healthy. We’re observing how the situation evolves and will continue adjusting accordingly. Please stay safe and take care of yourselves and each other so we can overcome this crisis together sooner.

With love, Shawnie and Willy

Welcome to 1900 Inn on Montford

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.

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!

Amazing Honeymoon

We spent a few days of our honeymoon in October here and it was incredible!! Shawnee and Willie are the most gracious hosts and made our stay even more memorable. Prior to our arrival, they upgraded us to The Cloisters and that suite is AMAZING! The breakfasts were incredible and we were so spoiled having them delivered to our room each morning. Shawnee’s cookies in the refreshment area are delicious!
My older daughter is saying Asheville is her top choice for her residency next year, and if she matches, we will definitely be visiting 1900 Inn on Montford many times! Thank you Shawnee and Willie!
