Marshall House Inn

Perched on a hill, the Inn offers 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 with its buzzing art scene featuring hundreds of fine artists, performing arts venues, crafters, folk artists and numerous galleries. 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. Mars Hill University is only minutes away.

In the immediate area you can experience the adventure of the blue ridge mountains and French Broad river including the Appalachian trail, hiking, hot springs, whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing, fishing, mountain biking, cycling, zip lining, horseback riding and more.

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 ratingHistoric inn getaway along the river. A beautiful property located on the side of a steep hill overlooking the French Broad river. Professional renovations and hotel comforts. We enjoyed take-out meals from a couple of really good local establishments on their wide porch. Clean, spacious, relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommended. A perfect location for our anniversary celebration. Day trips into the mountains to visit waterfalls.


    Such a nice place! Beautiful building and location. Loved spending time with our nice hosts, plus the dog and cat. They put breakfast items in our room before our arrival (for COVID-19 regulations): granola, milk, OJ, etc)- it was fantastic, as was sitting out on the lovely porch in the evenings. Highly recommend. The drive out from Asheville is also beautiful, if you're heading that way.

    Our stay was wonderful. The Inn itself is lovely and Marshall is a beautiful and small mountain town. The Continental breakfast is the best you'll ever have with fresh scones, quiche and farm fresh eggs boiled to perfection. We spent every morning watching the sunrise from the front porch. The inn is in close proximity to great hiking as well as lots of water sports and fishing.

    I had a wonderful time at the Marshall House Inn! The inn is absolutely stunning. It is obvious that a lot of time and love has been poured into the renovation of this home, with the perfect mix of historic details and modern amenities. The location is perfect for exploring Marshall. I stayed in Room 1, which offered a beautiful view of downtown. Breakfast was delightful (the brickleberry scones were PHENOMENAL). I cannot wait to... read more

  • The Marshall House Inn is such a treat! A great way to experience Marshall like an insider and get pampered in the process. You will love the scones and the front porch!


    5 star ratingWhat an awesome place to reboot! Great room, beautiful porch overlooking the French Broad and Marshall. What a cool place to disconnect!

    Everything was as promised, clean, and peaceful. Was solo this time, but looking forward to a couples retreat in the near future.


    Just lovely! The room and common areas were cozy and spacious, with beautiful views over downtown Marshall. Only a quick 3 minute walk to downtown, but the space is so welcoming we enjoyed just hanging out there as much as exploring the town.
