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.

I spent four great nights at the Marshall House Inn while attending this year's Wild Goose Festival. My room was spacious and lovely, and the hospitality -- including breakfast -- was delightful. I would definitely recommend Marshall Inn as a relaxing, comfortable and appealing getaway location.7/18/2018

Excellent Inn just outside Asheville, John (Innkeeper) was friendly, welcoming and helpful with local suggestions. We stayed here to be close to a White Water Raft trip with NOC. This was perfect! The house is very nice and well kept. The rooms were clean with lots of natural amenities and linens. The continental breakfast was plenty to get you going for whatever adventures you have, great coffee too!7/15/2018
My husband and I stayed here for two nights and had a relaxing and wonderful time. John and Kerstin have done an amazing job renovating this old building - it’s both modern and historic, beautiful and comfortable. We also delighted in the continental breakfast, a good alternative to the standard B&B breakfast situation for morning introverts.7/12/2018
Wonderful Stay in this perfectly appointed space! We loved our room, the relaxed vibe and sipping coffee on the porch. We'll be back... Thank you, Marshall House Inn!7/05/2018
Not just a place to stop, it's now going to be a destination. I was traveling around NC four days before a planned family reunion. It was my first solo excursion without planned stays. I arrived in Marshall, NC planning on working on family genealogy at the Madison County Courthouse. I wasn't sure how much time I'd need in Marshall. At the end of day one I stumbled across The Marshall House Inn. It was so warm, comfortable, and inviting I sought out a second night there. The innkeepers, John & Kerstin, made me feel like a much loved family member that was expected; and not just someone who appeared at their doorstop. The rooms are incredibly large and well furnished. It was apparent the rooms were definitely not "thrown together". Each piece was selected for functionality that benefited both its purpose and esthetics. They were spot on with all the little extras. (Fresh native flowers in each room and in the common rooms.) A common area that had anything you could possibly require. (Reading material, games, throws, etc.) The views are incredible. (The very large windows open. It was wonderful to listen to the sounds of the French Broad river and the chimes on the courthouse clock throughout the night.) The bed was super comfortable. The bathroom, updated and very functional. (The shower pressure was incredible.) The backstory on The Marshall House Inn is definitely worth hearing. And a walk through the town of Marshall is a MUST. Plan on a leisurely exploration, you won't want to miss person or a shop. (Many are multiple generational owners. Make sure you stop and say hello to Ms. Cathy at the hardware.)6/24/2018
B&B with character The Marshall House Inn was quaint, charming, and full of character. The hosts are very accommodating and helpful. I felt right at home! The beds were so comfortable and our room was so quiet. The towels are large and soft. The self-serve breakfast was healthy and delicious. The view from the front porch was amazing! It was the perfect place to relax after a long day exploring the area. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the Asheville area.6/14/2018
We really enjoyed our stay. Wonderful, quiet location with a great view. Very easy to get to Asheville, but a welcome break from the Big City. Hosts were very nice, and the house was amazing - nice blend of old and new. Very comfortable rooms, very good breakfast. Thank you! Chris and Tami Zenker5/30/2018
Perfect place to stay in Western N.C. Our family of 4 and 2 good friends were going to a wedding in Marshall and while most of the wedding party stayed in Asheville we opted for Marshall House Inn. The best decision we made all weekend. The Inn is perfectly appointed for anything you need to be comfortable and relax above the French Broad River. The rooms were gracious, clean and comfortable. The common space was packed with snacks games and information about the area (John and Kerstin were also super knowledgeable and helpful in our search for places and things nearby) Just down the hill the town has breakfast lunch and dinner to rival any larger city and it's chock full of makers and places. Don't miss Lapland Bookshop and Arts. The guys fished and we searched for river otters (they are nocturnal we learned later) The Inn was full but remainded quiet and private. My girls rated it the best bed and breakfast we have stayed in to date. It was also great to be outside the traffic when we had to get back in the car and get to our destination. More5/30/2018
It's really fortuitous that the only inn/BnB in town is so top grade! Character and soul are equal to the decor, comfort (those beds!), and cleanliness. Breakfast items provided are more than "continental" and the nut bread is not to be skipped. Have some of that coffee on their welcoming front porch. And for more "drinking", don't miss the town's brewery. Music is a big plus in Marshall, too, so I hope your stay allows you the time to take that in as well. With John and Kirsten's Marshall House as your base, you are set to have a very good time indeed in this quirky mountain town.5/26/2018

Marshall House Inn has a very special place in my heart, because it is where my husband and I stayed the weekend he proposed! We have since been back again, with intentions to visit yearly as a tradition. The town of Marshall is quaint and friendly, and the Inn's hosts John and Kerstin are nothing short of incredible. From the antique furnishings to the luxurious linen sheets, we felt as comfortable in our room than we do in our own bed at home. Much love to this wonderful place, in a beautiful town.5/26/2018
