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.

What guests are saying about the Inn...

  • 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


    5 star ratingComfortable, warm, relaxing Wonderful stay! The house is beautiful and gave me a great comfortable, warm, and relaxing feeling. Breakfast was great, room was great, and it was it was like a better than home away from home. I would recommend anyone stay here, and there is a lot of adventures in the area waiting for you!


    This is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. The service was fantastic with a delicious breakfast every morning and a wonderfully well kept house. An ideal mix of eclectic and classic styling with all the modern amenities.
    The location is perfect for visiting West North Carolina. We managed to make eventful day trips between Asheville and Cherokee but could have easily made an entire trip out of relaxing on the porch and enjoying the view...

  • positive review what a gem. hosts, are very good at making you feel welcome. grounds and house are beautiful. rooms are good size, and comfortable. most defiantly, will be staying there again.


    Booked the Marshall House Inn for a relaxing get away, it was wonderful. A beautiful bed n breakfast impressively restored with gorgeous wood work and historic decor. Innkeeper John was delightfully friendly and helpful.
    Breakfast was "yummiful" with fresh fruit, scones and quiche.
    As noted on website, the road up to and the driveway into the inn are VERY narrow with sharp turns. This is not the place for large vehicles.


    Stayed here in August and it was a beautiful place! Wonderful owners and great breakfast! I wish I actually had more time, and will definitely come back again if work brings me back to the area again.

  • 5 star ratingJust Right! John and Kerstin have created a beautiful, comfortable, welcoming place to stay in the precious town of Marshall, NC. The restoration on the historic home is top notch, leaving all the charm of the old fireplaces, well-worn stairs, lovely moldings, etc. while adding sensitively updated bathrooms, lighting and very comfortable furnishings to the guest rooms. Our room...#3, was clean, spacious and light-filled with a great view of the cute town, river and natural beauty of... read more

    The inn was gorgeous and centrally located. I loved being able to walk from the inn to all the events happening in downtown Marshall and the wonderful Star Diner restaurant. The innkeeper was very helpful and accommodated my every need. I will definitely come back to this inn again!
