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.

  • 5 star ratingBack roads motorcycle ride trip. I towed my bike up from Savannah to Greenville and rode to Marshall from there. The Inn was exactly what I needed to escape 3 straight months of remodeling our home. The property is very clean, small (4 rooms I think), quiet and in a perfect setting up on the hill overlooking town. The bed was marvelous too. Bringing my wife back in the fall.

    BTW, the riding in the area is fantastic as well for...

    5 star ratingLovely Old Inn in Marshall My husband and I stayed here for three nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the Inn is beautifully decorated. The fresh flowers in our room were extra special. The commons area where breakfast is served is stocked with beverages and snacks. John and Kerstin were warm and friendly hosts. I highly recommend the Marshall House Inn. We will definitely be back.


    Beautiful rooms in a historic home. Hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend for anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the Asheville area!

  • Nicest place I've stayed at so far with the nicest people. (Been across country) I would recommend for anyone visiting the area or ashville. Rooms and all areas of house were super clean. Very quite and peaceful stay. Owners were spectacular and for the price it's the best value by far. Would definitely stay again.


    This place is stellar, so classy and well designed. The hospitality is top notch as well. We had coffee and granola in our room (homemade), and additional breakfast foods and snacks in the common area. The patio overlooking downtown Marshall is delightful, as is their outdoor kitty who will come say hello if you want him too (pretty sure he'd leave you alone too, if you're not a cat person). They have a very sweet... read more


    positive review We recently visited for a birthday weekend getaway and loved the Inn! It was clean and they had great protocols in place to ensure health safety. The room was quiet and comfortable with wonderful views. The bed slept very well and the shower was wonderful! Thank you!

  • The Marshall House Inn is spectacular. I would highly recommend staying outside of the hustle and bustle and spending your time in a true escape and beautifully restored historic inn. This was the most relaxing vacation my husband and I could have imagined. The porch over looking the river and city was a perfect spot for my husband to play guitar as I sipped a glass of Rosè. The city has a lot... read more


    5 star ratingPERFECT GETAWAY! Great location, really enjoyed the ambiance of Marshall House Inn, lovely room, clean and comfortable. We stayed in number 4-my adult daughter also stayed so worked perfectly for us. Kirstin and John were perfect hosts! Loved the view sitting on the porch over the town, and river. Will return!


    If you are looking to stay in the Asheville area this is a must stay. This little inn is a hidden gem in the little town of Marshall. Even during COVID, John took extra measures to make sure that our stay was clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend staying here!

  • The best service!!


    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.
