The Perfect Get-Away in Asheville

5 on October 20, 2014

The room at the Albemarle Inn was just like the picture in the brochure. The canopy poster bed, the wonderful pedestal tub, and my favorite, the balcony overlooking the beautiful grounds. The lit fireplace in the parlor was perfect for reading a book and relaxing after a day in the city. The food was excellent with a french twist of dessert at breakfast. Upon returning to the room after breakfast, the bed was already made and fresh towels were hanging in the bath. We highly recommend this inn to visitors at Asheville.

One of the best. Thanks and Blessings. Judy Myers

Excellent place to stay and the staff & Innkeepers were very accommodating to our needs. The rooms and appointments were beautiful and well maintained. Parking is somewhat tight but not an issue. Breakfast was excellent however, it was somewhat overshadowed by the establishments running out of honey with no replacement. Beautiful, quiet and relaxing property that I would recommend highly.

Beautiful B&B

5 on August 30, 2014

Stayed at the inn during a business trip. It was my husband's first and he was truly impressed! We are travelers but stay at major brand hotels or rent vacation homes if traveling with family. Staying at B&B is now an added option and Albemarle Inn certainly raised the bar! The Innkeepers were excellent! The breakfast was amazing! We will certainly be back!

The Albemarle is FANTASTIC

4.6 on July 10, 2014

My boyfriend and I made the drive up to Asheville for the first time over a long Fourth of July weekend. I found the Albemarle online - it's the first bed & breakfast we've ever stayed in. I can't say enough good things about it - the staff are wonderful and always working to make your stay better; the rooms are beautiful and provide a unique experience; the grounds are gorgeous; the breakfast is delicious and it's close to everything you want to do in Asheville. We'll be back.

Innkeeper Response

Albemarle stay

3.4 on July 07, 2014

We did not get the room we selected when we registered because a previous guest extended their stay. The innkeeper was not very apologetic nor did she offer any accommodation for the change (eg. some kind of discount.) The bed while very comfortable was in a corner which made it hard to get up and down on the wall side. Linens were clean and lovely. Room was a bit dark and overhead lightbulb was out. Bathroom was small but clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast began with blueberries I lemon curd. Main dish was cheddar and broccoli quiche with not so tasty sausages and cookies for dessert.
