Located in Asheville's Historic Montfort District, Apple-Wood Manor Inn, also referred to as the "Captain John A. Perry House" completed in 1912, is a colonial revival home designed by the versatile Asheville architect William Henry Lord. The foundation was laid by stonemasons who had previously worked on the Biltmore House and the exterior is executed in the shingle style uncharacteristic of the region. The Inn sits on a 1.5 acres knoll of rolling grass and high trees in a quiet neighborhood.

I was looking for a room with a fireplace, and jetted tub. Both features were great! The bed was not very comfortable, though. I think the mattress needs an updating. Everything was very clean, Nancy was awesome, the breakfast was outstanding! The yard was nice, bigger than most houses surrounding it. The location was great, quick to get downtown, or to the Biltmore. If we return to Asheville, we will definitely stay here again!

We stayed in the cottage of Applewood Manor since we were traveling with a fur baby. The fact that it was pet friendly and one of the most affordable and best values for what you got, plus the excellent reviews, was our reason for choosing them. The cottage was charmingly decorated and had a hot tub. That was a pleasure after a long day of job searching and sightseeing. The 3-course breakfasts were delicious and there was something different each day. Nancy and Larry were very gracious and we enjoyed visiting with them and the other couples. There was wine, cheese and snack mix provided in the evenings. They treated our dog like one of us. We would recommend and would stay there again.

My husband and I spent our 10 yr anniversary at Applewood Manor Inn in Asheville, NC. We were impressed right from the start. Upon arrival, hostess Nancy, greeted us at the front door by our first names and immediately wished us a happy anniversary. She welcomed us in and showed us the lovely home. Our room was warm and cozy. The hosts had our room ready, lighted and playing soft classical music. On the bedside was a handwritten note addressed to us along with a gift for our anniversary, which was potted African Violet. How sweet!! Each morning we went in for coffee and juice and were served an amazing 3 course breakfast prepared by Nancy. At our first breakfast, we met Larry. He was nice as could be, greeted us by name and learned how we take our coffee, he was pleasant and easy to talk to. He enjoyed telling stories and jokes and encouraging the guests into conversations with each other. While we had our breakfast, staff was in our room cleaning up and turning down our bed, which they did twice a day while we were there. The home is in a perfect location, just an absolutely beautiful neighborhood, walking distance to downtown Asheville, and a quick drive to any of the other sights around town. This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and thanks to Nancy and Larry and there wonderful hospitality, we cannot wait to plan another trip!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and loved every minute of our stay. Innkeepers Larry and Nancy are sweet, down to earth folks who make you feel like family the moment they meet you. We stayed in the Winesap Suite which encompasses the entire third floor. There is a nice view, a small sitting area, a huge two person tub in the large bathroom, and a king size bed. It was everything an in love couple needs for a fantastic honeymoon. Applewood Manor is a pleasant 20 minute stroll to downtown Asheville. Nancy and Larry know great places to eat and sightsee. We stayed for 9 days and 8 nights and never had the same breakfast twice. The breakfast breads with cream cheese were my favorite and I usually don't like bread. Nancy will share any recipe with you that you ask. It is also great to come back after a day of fun for social hour at 5pm. There is red and white wine available along with an assortment of cheese, crackers, and salsa. The blueberry goat cheese is out if this world. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. It is priced perfectly and the service is excellent. I feel like I have made several lifelong friends during our stay.

Just amazing! Larry and Nancy are so engaging and will go out of their way to do whatever is needed for their guests. They both have amazing stories as to how they wound up at the Applewood Manor and they are more than willing to share with you. Nancy is a great cook and Larry gets everyone smiling with his jokes. The cottage was beautifully appointed and so cozy. Great location and I can promise you the next time we go back to Asheville, wihich may be soon, we will be staying with Larry and Nancy.

We stayed at Applewood Manor over thanksgiving and were received with a warm welcome and enjoyed all the little amenities such as complementary wine and cheese. We stayed in the Northern Spy room which was a little cool even with the heat turned up so we had to look for extra blankets and the water temperature in the shower was very temperamental. Overall, we had a wonderful stay though. The breakfasts are to die for and Nancy and Larry are amazing hosts with a great sense of humor.
