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.

  • 5 star ratingGem in the Mountains Sweet bed and breakfast with pleasant atmosphere and very comfortable rooms. Friendly owners and precious resident dog. Had a heavenly sleep in the luxurious king size bed in room 1! Couldn’t have asked for better accommodations on my quick trip to this quaint town!


    I cannot put into words what a lovely experience this was! If only we could recreate the ambiance and bedding( we tried to buy theirs:) in our own home!

    Both my husband and I had not slept that well in years. We will be back! Everything about this was just wonderful! Just remember to pull in your side view mirrors when pulling through the driveway:)


    This place is beautiful! Tucked into the hill overlooking the town is this wonderful house! The owners were so incredibly nice and informative of the house as well as the town itself! The rooms were spacious and the bed was really comfy! If you're looking for a retreat in N.C. Look no further!

The beds are very comfortable, with linen sheets, plenty of blankets, and perfectly plump pillows. Breakfast included a nice variety of options including granola and other cereals with milk or non-dairy options, bagels/bread, quiche, yogurts, cheese, fresh coffee and a variety... read more


    John and Kerstin have done a wonderful job in making the Marshall House Inn classy and comfortable, with great attention to the details. They know the area well, and take the time to point you in the right direction. I cannot think of any way they could make the stay better. A+

The Inn maintains a considerable amount of the time appropriate pieces. Our room was spacious and the bed was great (using real linen sheets). Both of us got a good nights sleep on this bed.
