While I have stayed in a couple of B&B's with our daughters, this was the first time we enjoyed one as a couple. Thanks in large part to Lynn & Karen's graciousness, along with the inn's incredible accommodations, my husband is now sold on the whole concept of B&B's! We live in the Asheville area & my husband planned this as a surprise getaway where we could still be near our children should they have needed us. Staying in Zelda's Retreat we loved the wonderful suite, yummy, three course breakfasts, and the relaxing bath. A bonus was visiting during December with all the lovely Christmas decorations & lights. Highly recommended!

We took a couples weekend with several of our friends and stayed here. The inn was beautiful and wonderfully decorated for Christmas. All of the rooms were unique and the bedding was so comfortable I actually purchased some sheets when we left. The breakfasts were delicious and unique. They had a cocktail hour every evening and served wine and desserts, and on Saturday night, they had a live band come and entertain. I will definitely stay here again.

Great place with great service! Lynn and Karen were both very friendly and very accommodating. House is well kept and very clean. Enjoyed one evening with live music in the foyer while sipping on some local wine. We are already discussing our future visit back here at the 1900 Inn on Montford.

Perfect! We celebrated our 25th anniversary at the 1900 Inn on Montford in Asheville, NC. The owners, Lynn and Ron, are superior hosts. I felt as if we were honored guests at a country estate. They're genuine concern for their guests' comfort is obvious in everything they do. Every morning they serve a three course gourmet breakfast and in the evenings they host wine on their porch. Once or twice a week they hire musicians to entertain their guests. My husband enjoys live music and that was a real treat for us. The inn was very clean and beautifully decorated in a gender neutral style that appealed to both of us. The rooms are very spacious and the bathroom was to die for! We stayed in the Fitzgerald room and the pictures can't adequately show how fabulous the bedroom and bathroom are! We'll be back, for sure!

A wonderful stay in a luxurious B&B that not only allow pets (and caters to them), but has enclosed yards for the dogs. Added to this, they are wheelchair friendly too!!

Asheville was the first stop on a road trip celebrating our 20th anniversary and my husband's 50th birthday. We stayed in the Rossetti Suite and when we went in, we found special balloons and champagne waiting for us which was a really lovely touch. The suite itself was unbelievable - shower with multiple jets and sauna, huge jacuzzi tub with lots of massage options and lights, wonderful outdoor garden (where we ate our delicious breakfast that was delivered each morning!), fireplace, super comfy bed and linens. Ron and Lynn were the most gracious hosts and great to talk to about Asheville or anything. There is a happy hour each evening on the porch of the main house with local wine from Biltmore and live music on Saturdays. Ron even drove us in to town one evening in the Rolls Royce! This is a must stay inn and we'll be back!

Ron & Lynn definitely made our 20th anniversary special. We chose our room, The Fitzgerald more than anything because of the newly remodeled bath area. We loved it even more in person than in photos. The room was very romantic as was the swing on the front porch. We loved the live music courtesy of Ben & Co. on Saturday night. And the breakfast each morning was excellent. We also loved the welcoming reception we received from Karen & Frances. We definitely would come back again!

We stayed here about 2 weeks ago in the Fitzgerald room and had a fabulous experience. The house is well-decorated, clean, and inviting. The room (and bathroom!) were spacious, clean, and comfortable. Lynn, Ron, and the rest of the staff were all warm and welcoming. Lynn can tell you with precision about each restaurant in Asheville before you go there. Ron makes the most delicious breakfasts. And they both have put an extreme amount of thought and care into all of the details of your stay. (The clappers used for applauding the music they host on Saturdays nights? They allow one to clap for the fabulous music without having to put down one's glass of wine - bravo!). The next time we are in Asheville there is not doubt in our minds where we will be staying.

My partner Kelly and I went up to Asheville for a birthday weekend. When we arrived at this beautiful Inn we were greeted immediately and given a tour. There was happy birthday balloons and champagne waiting for us in the room! That was the beginnnig of a wonderful weekend. We loved our room, it was very warm and cozy. The innkeeper's Lynn and Ron were extroidinary hosts as well as the rest of the staff. We were able to chat and get to know the other guests as well as Lynn and Ron at the evening's happy hour. There was entertainment on the porch from local musicians (you don't see that on most B&B's). We woke up in the morning to coffee at 8 delivered to our door, and a gourmet breakfast in the dining room. What could be bad...right? The icing on the cake...no pun intended is when Ron gave us a ride to a restaurant in Biltmore Village in their 1980 Rolls Royce. We loved it so much that we want to book again for Christmas. There is a reason that this inn was given a 4 diamond rating. As far as we are concerned it deserves 5 diamonds.
