My husband and I recently spent the weekend at the Melrose Inn while looking for a vacation home. It was truly delightful. The Inn is an unique and eclectic place and reasonably priced. The breakfast was delicious and Marilyn also prepares an amazing dinner if you give her a little notice. She has complementary "happy hour" which you can enjoy on her large porch. We will definitely return!

My wife and I enjoyed a visit to the Inn to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Marilyn is a gracious inn keeper and excellent chef. Her breakfasts are without equal and special evening meals are a delight. The inn is truly unique but not for everyone. The inn dates to the late 1800 s and as such is a treasure for those with an appreciation of days gone by while Marilyn's decorating style is quite eclectic and a diverse treat for the eye.
The Melrose Inn - enchanting and relaxing

Put together - the decor, the food, the attention to detail and alacritous service that Marilyn has created in her inn, is not unlike the beautiful artistry of her quilts. The Melrose Inn is an enchanting and relaxing escape.
"Unique Inn with a Fabulous Host"
on May 17, 2014
My friend and I, along with a small dog, stayed 2 nights at the Melrose Inn as we traveled in the Tryon/Landrum area. Marilyn was a wonderful host, you couldn't ask for better. From arrival and throughout our stay, she was so very gracious and accommodating. The breakfasts and dinners were scrumptious. The older Inn is filled with a lifetime of collectables and treasures as well as beautiful quilts. The front porch is very relaxing as are the grounds surrounding the Inn. The Library and Fine Arts Center located across the street are beautifully landscaped and we enjoyed the outdoor afternoon performance during our stay. Thank you Marilyn, we had a wonderful time.
PERFECT WEEKEND STAY !

Marilyn's Melrose Inn is the quintessential quality lodge. Marilyn, owner, proprietor, customer service, concierge, chef, beautiful woman, All-In-Everything !
Each & every request for assistance is met with sincerity & purpose. Not only is her lodging 'pet friendly', Marilyn went so far as to find us a 'free' place to tether our Great Pyrenees dog while we stayed in Tryon. She hosts many civic and artistic events, and personally participates enthusiastically promoting the Tryon Cultural Calendar. Four thumbs up for this welcome & refreshing breath of fresh mountain air.
The Perfect Getaway!

We had such a wonderful long weekend at Marilyn's Melrose Inn. Marilyn made us feel right at home from the moment we walked through the door. The place is a delight for those who enjoy art in all forms. We were constantly amazed not only by the surroundings, but the wonderful hospitality, and the incredible food! Our anniversary dinner was customized just for us, and absolutely perfect. We cannot say enough good things about Marilyn and her Melrose Inn. We will definitely be repeat guests. Thank you, Marilyn, for a unique and wonderful anniversary getaway.
SIMPLY FANTASTIC IN EVERY WAY!

All I can say is THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! We had the most wonderful time, and everything we put into our mouths was absolutely fantastic! You are a very talented and AMAZING lady, Marilyn. You also have a special way of making people feel welcome and right at home - including our little four legged friends ( :
There couldn't be a more perfect person to run Melrose Inn than you! I highly recommend this inn - you will be in store for a treat!
Thanks again for a night that neither of us will ever forget in your beautiful sanctuary -

During our three night stay we were treated to a Melrose Inn that was aglow with the wonders and joys of Christmas! The dining room tables and all of the public rooms were a sight to behold. Marilyn collections are simply wonderful!
Our breakfasts and dinners were absolutely delicious as well as marvelous experiences and any time spent with Marilyn is delightful.
We intend to stay at this inn whenever we are in Tryon, NC
Stimulating but restful stay
on September 08, 2013
We enjoyed our one night stay at the Melrose Inn in August 2013, on our way back to Georgia from a week in Asheville. Marilyn Doheny has made this rambling old house into a cozy inn, decorated with her creative quilts and exotic room designs. Filled with antiques and curiosities, the inn reflects the lively and energetic personality of Marilyn herself, who was a considerate and delightful host. Though she is a fairly recent transplant to Tryon, she helped us enjoy several features of Tryon that we might otherwise have missed and enhanced our visit in this small mountain foothills town. Marilyn offered us complimentary wine, beer and other beverages in the late afternoon when we arrived. We had a very restful night's sleep in the Egyptian Room, where the adjoining bathroom fixtures are old but clean; the shower functioning could be improved since it required hand-holding to be fully effective but it sufficed. In the morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast of fruit, homemade muffins, eggs and bacon on the front porch. (The inn has a spacious dining room, but Marilyn was happy to serve us and the other guests on the porch on a cool morning in late summer.) We recommend the Melrose Inn to anyone visiting Tryon looking for a stimulating but restful stay that doesn't break the budget.
