The newly renovated Marshall House Inn is a bed and breakfast Inn providing 4 contemporary styled rooms in a beautiful historic home in downtown Marshall, NC. Marshall House Inn The Inn is Perched on a hill offering 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 or experience the adventure of the blue ridge mountains and french broad river including the Appalachian trail, hot springs, Whitewater rafting, Tubing, fishing, biking,  zip lining, horseback riding and more. 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 or pebbledash. The house was converted into a ‘Tourist Home’ in the 1920s and has been welcoming guests to Marshall ever since. Our 2016 renovations have updated the inn by infusing it with a 21st century aesthetic while still honoring the rich history of the house.

What guests are saying about the Inn...

  • 5 star ratingB&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.

    5 star ratingPerfect 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. More

    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 star ratingMarshall 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.

  • Inn keepers are friendly and welcoming. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Quiet during the night. Simple, but adequate breakfast choices. Great coffee. Wonderful little town by the river which is good for walking.

    I highly recommend staying at Marshall House Inn if you’re in Madison county. John was a fantastic innkeeper and very helpful with questions we had about the area. The inn is beautiful and our room was perfect and had an amazing view overlooking downtown Marshall and the French Broad River. We would definitely stay here again.

  • 5 star ratingWe spent the weekend in the Marshall area visiting our son who lives there. The Inn was completely wonderful. We stayed in Room 3, very comfortable with a large sitting area and ample windows overlooking the town and river. Great renovation and decor integrates the character of this old building with modern touches and amenities (such as a roomy glass shower), and -- to my delight -- no TV in the room! A large common room was well stocked with a thoughtful assortment of breakfast items. John and Kerstin were extremely pleasant hosts, and the entire experience was totally frictionless. A terrific inn.
