About

Intimate and Romantic - The 1900 Inn on Montford invites you to be our guest and discover bed and breakfast comfort and hospitality with a warmth and graciousness that is reminiscent of Biltmore's Gilded Age. The Inn has been lovingly and thoughtfully restored to create the inviting ambience of past splendor and elegance. The residence was designed in 1900 by Richard Sharp Smith, Supervising Architect for Biltmore House. Today it is an elegant AAA Four Diamond Bed and Breakfast furnished with English and American antiques dating from 1670 to 1910. All of our exquisite rooms have private ensuite baths, king size beds, and fireplaces. All bathrooms have showers. Four bathrooms have whirlpool baths and one a clawfoot tub. Griffin Cottage, our new carriage house has three deluxe accommodations: the William Morris room and the Rossetti suite on the ground floor and the 1300 sq ft Cloisters as the entire second floor. Tumbled marble is used throughout for the floors and shower walls. All have separate showers with steam baths and two person whirlpools. The living room in the Cloisters features hand-carved paneling. All of Griffin Cottage is "children and pet friendly" with enclosed back gardens and "doggy trundle beds" in the ground floor rooms.

Husband now sold on B&B's!

4.6 on December 27, 2013

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!


Fabulous weekend stay.

5 on December 10, 2013

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 to stay!

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.


Everything Was Perfect!

5 on September 15, 2013

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!


wheelchair and pet friendly

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!!
