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...

  • 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.

  • 5 star ratingCouldn’t wait to come back! Thanks again John! I can’t recommend your place highly enough! Hope to bring back friends or family next time.:)
    From the lovely accommodations, lovely breakfast, great recommendations and flexibility with a last minute add on night to our reservation, it was just wonderful.:)


    SUPER cute inn. The hosts are wonderful and very nice. We booked 3 rooms for our wedding week and we all loved it. Would definitely stay again!


    5 star ratingMarshall, NC We loved staying at the Inn. Our room was gorgeous and the innkeeper was so helpful. Loved the quiche in the morning. Our expectations were far exceeded. Marshall is a magical little town with amazing food, craft beer, and local artisans. This may be the coolest small town I've ever been to.

  • 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


    Spent the night in Room3. Was thrilled when John opened the doors to a fabulous room(suite actually). The windows were open and the mountain breeze was blowing in. Breakfast was nice and had a variety of foods. Cozy atmosphere , friendly people, spacious rooms. Well worth the drive to get there. We will be back!
