The newly renovated Marshall House Inn is a bed and breakfast Inn providing 4 contemporary styled rooms in a beautiful historic home located in the charming small mountain town of Marshall, NC with easy access to the best that western North Carolina has to offer.

Marshall House Inn

Perched on a hill, the Inn offers stunning views of the French Broad River as it flows through picturesque downtown Marshall. Just steps away you’ll discover live music, libations, art, shops, coffee, casual & fine dining.

Within a half hour drive you can explore the urban excitement of Asheville with its buzzing art scene featuring hundreds of fine artists, performing arts venues, crafters, folk artists and numerous galleries. Asheville’s vibrant food scene is diverse and runs the gamut from four-star cuisine to unique food trucks and the beer scene boasts the most breweries per capita of any U.S. city.

In the immediate area you can experience the adventure of the blue ridge mountains and French Broad river including the Appalachian trail, hiking, hot springs, whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing, fishing, mountain biking, cycling, zip lining, horseback riding and more.

Renovated in 2016, the Marshall House Inn is a unique mansion built as a private residence in 1903 and listed on the national register of historic places. Designed by the supervising architect of the Biltmore Estate, Richard Sharp Smith, the house is built in the English vernacular style being covered in Roughcast. The house was converted into a ‘Tourist Home’ in the 1920s and has been welcoming guests to Marshall ever since.

  • Beautifully decorated and laid out for guests. Best coffee, breakfast items,

    Made with love, locally sourced. Highly recommend!


    Took a "siblings" trip to Black Mountain and Marshall, N.C. to reconnect with cousins and enjoy some family time. The Marshall House Inn suited our needs perfectly! We stayed in rooms #2 and #3 and could not have been happier. The location was ideal, the rooms were nicely appointed, and breakfast and coffee was delicious. We would absolutely return and highly recommend the Marshall House Inn to others!


    5 star ratingGreat location, great room We recently spent 4 days at The Marshall Inn. The house is spacious and has an old-time welcoming feeling. It is on a bluff overlooking The French Broad River, which has a significant current and is beautiful to watch.. The one main street is short but this is square in the middle of everything. We stayed in the largest room, #3, and it was really spacious with a HUGE bed and... read more

    A charming and cozy inn and a hidden gem of a town! John pointed us to live music (MadCo) and good food (Sweet Monkey) to top it all off. Really a special place that has obviously been created out of love. Highly recommend!

  • Loved my time at this Inn. I do plan to return. Lovely couple and the home has such a nice feel. I loved getting up in the morning and slipping right outside of our door to the breakfast bar and coffee. The bed was absolutely perfect and I'm a stickler for good covers and blankets. It was as if it was made for me. Linen sheets and quilts.


    5 star ratingEuropean views and luxury in the WNC mountains. The town of Marshall at night is charming, as seen from the Inn. It looks like a fairyland with the globes marching along the sides of the bridge and the clock tower on the courthouse - all visible from our room.The room was spacious and well-appointed with excellent linens and artworks, much of it created by Kerstin and John. We loved the breakfast choices as well - tasteful and tasty. Finding that you can... read more
