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...

  • 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.

    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.

  • positive review Looking for a quiet comfortable place within walking distance of Marshall’s Main Street? The historic Marshall House Inn is it! John led us to a beautiful light-filled spacious room overlooking Main Street and the French Broad river. Lovely “base camp” for our anniversary weekend.


    Lovely Place to stay. We greatly enjoyed our visit and Management was extremely nice and helpful.
