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.

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. The house was converted into a ‘Tourist Home’ in the 1920s and has been welcoming guests to Marshall ever since.

What guests are saying about the Inn...

  • 5 star ratingHow many ways to describe matchless? We stayed one night in unit four and hated a travel schedule that compelled us to move on. With fifty plus five star reviews there is not much to add. The owners are friendly and their taste and dedication are reflected in the restoration, furnishings and ambience of the house. They also make a home for a wonderful dog. Make a plan or change your plans and treat yourself to a visit.

    5 star ratingVery nice place to decompress! We spent a weekend in room one, and found it to be very clean, with a wonderful view, and one of the best showers I've had in a long time. Although there are no TV's, the wifi is excellent. The staff is very helpful, and we enjoyed the upscale continental breakfast. Marshall is a cool little town, reminiscent of places I've been in Colorado, with natural food stores, bike rentals, brewpub and cafes. I would... read more

    Wife and I stayed here after hiking in the nearby town of Hot Springs. Very homey and accomodating. The owners are very friendly. The Inn itself is gorgeous and historic, overlooks the quiet town and river. Snacks and breakfast provided, we absolutely enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 star ratingHigh on the Hill above the Town... That line from an old time song perfectly describes where to find the Marshall House Inn. The building is old. The family occupies the downstairs and guest have one of four bedrooms upstairs, all of which open into a common area where breakfast is served. Breakfast was good and I remember the following - tea, coffee, juice, an egg dish, and my favorite, scones. Marshall is a little town in... read more

    5 star ratingWhat a wonderful place! We absolutely loved staying at Marshall House. It was by accident that we found this unique inn, and we are so glad we did. John and Kerstin have done an amazing job of creating an atmosphere of both elegance and comfort. Their attention to detail, from lighting, to furniture/art/architectural detail, to cozy sitting spaces and gardens were perfectly planned. The delicious, hot coffee, along with the healthful and filling breakfast on the landing was... read more
