The Aberdeen Inn was built as a large family residence in the early 1900's and part of the Grove Park neighborhood of North Asheville, close to downtown and all local attractions. One of the earliest houses built in the area, the Aberdeen Inn rests on a small rise surrounded by an acre of lawns, trees and gardens. From the columned wraparound front porch, the oak and dogwood trees frame your view of the mountains surrounding Asheville. The Aberdeen Inn is an inn with all the luxuries our guests "dream" of with a price that leaves no one out!

New Years Eve Getaway

Wonderful host and home. Tom was very friendly and accommodating throughout our stay. Breakfast was delicious. Great central location to get into downtown Asheville. The bath robes were a nice warming touch.

Biggest Steal in Asheville

4.8 on April 09, 2013

Outstanding stay at the inn with all the comforts and amenities that you could want. Complimentary wine, beer, and soda after a long drive really does the trick. Rooms are tastefully appointed with various porches and decks to relax on. 15 minutes walking to downtown Asheville makes it convenient to take in the sights. Helpful hosts eager to give recommendations on anything you need. Unparalleled value.

This should be called a Breakfast and Bed, because the breakfast was fabulous. Best breakfast I have ever had. Tom is a wonderful chef, and breakfast could easily have been a $40+ meal for two at a restaurant. jMichele gave us great suggestions for restaurants to try in the area. Rooms were cheaper compared to other B&Bs in the area. This one was in walking distance from downtown. The house was neat with comfy rooms.

Enjoyable stay

4.6 on August 04, 2012

This was only my second stay ever in a B&B and my daughter's first time. We had a wonderul time and enjoyed the food immensely! We couldn't have asked for a nicer or more accomodating host as Tom. When he found out I drank only decaffeinated tea and did not eat my eggs "runny", he made sure each morning that my tea was available and my eggs were as I liked. It was so nice to have such tasty breakfasts that were not your every day, run of the mill bacon and eggs breakfasts. Unfortunately we were not able to meet Michelle because she had out of town business to attend to. I did enjoy my conversations with Tom and he was always ready to help with information on good places to eat and directions to any where we needed to go. I would definitely stay here again and recommend hightly to friends.

Concord Women invade Aberdeen Inn

Six women from Concord arrived at the Aberdeen Inn in the rain. We had tons of fun and shared a lot of laughter. Thanks to Tom who smiled and put up with us. I think he will miss us very much!!!

A Delightful Stay

Tom & Michele were wonderful! We had such a relaxing stay. They welcomed us into their home, fed us like royalty and made us feel just like family. We came all the way from California to be married in their garden surrounded by their beautiful blooming roses. We couldn't have had a more memorable stay. If you're ever near Asheville, Aberdeen Inn is a must! We can hardly wait to visit our new friends again. Lyndy & Jeff

We love the Aberdeen!

I have cumulatively stayed at the Aberdeen for 28 nights over the past 3 years. I travel all over the country and stay in hotels all the time and can say with authority that there's nothing like staying with Tom and Michele. They and their staff take such good care of their guests, it's better than being home. Bring your appetite to breakfast because it's always delicious and well-prepared. The Inn is a little off the beaten path, but it's still an easy walk to downtown and the neighborhood is friendly, quiet and full of character. The grounds are so beautiful, we got married there last weekend. No kidding! The day afterward was spent reading and napping on the big breezy front porch.

Another wonderful and memorable stay at Aberdeen Inn!

Al and Jacqui Livermore, Pinehurst, NC Just returned from our 2nd stay at the Aberdeen Inn within 4 months, and Tom and Michele outdid themselves again! From the moment we walked thru the front door we felt welcomed like we were coming to a friend or family member's home. Stayed in the Mt. Laurel room this time, and it was just as nice and comfortable as the Willow room we stayed in August. Both rooms are at the back of the inn, large comfortable beds with adjoining deck just outside a set of french doors. The deck in the summer was a great place to hang out and have a glass of wine, but with 18 degrees this trip we opted to stay inside where it was nice and warm with fireplace in the living room, and in our bedroom as well. The breakfasts are not to be missed, and we have never left the table without a feeling of awe on what they create and present each morning. Their attention to detail is first class, and if we ever have any questions they are quick to reply and respond. Conveniently located just minutes from downtown Asheville, it is accessible to the major roads and highways, but far enough away that you don't hear any traffic, and getting anywhere is easy and fast. We highly recommend a stay here for a wonderful experience, and if you have the time, (and they do too), chat with Tom and Michele. Wonderful, genuine people, and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ashville.

25th anniversary awesome experience

5 on September 20, 2010

My husband and I had never stayed at a B&B. I looked online and booked this bc of the good reviews. We were pleasantly surprised. It was great. From the great room to the delicious breakfasts both mornings. Tom & Michele were so nice and so helpful. We have told everyone we knew what a great time we had. It is very close to downtown and convenient to all attractions. We had the mountain view room. It was beautiful and very clean. We will be back.

Wonderful Weekend Vacation Spot

So much could be said about The Aberdeen Inn. Sadly, this website only allows for 2,000 characters. So in the place of a full on review this perhaps can be written of mine and my wife's recent stay at the Aberdeen Inn. The food, cooked by both Tom and Michelle, was the likes of which neither I nor my had eaten. Their attention to their guests' eating habits makes them more than deserving of praise. Also, having their special summer rate that included a pair of discounted tickets to the Biltmore estate allowed us to save money for other touring, dining, etc. around Asheville. The room was wonderful. My wife couldn't stop singing the priases of the blinds in the room. Yes, random, I know. But she liked their simplicity. I, too, liked them. And the bed was so soft. We had no problem falling asleep. The bathroom was a tad bit small, but it worked for us. My wife and I arrived early to the inn. Just as we were arriving, our hosts were getting ready to leave. I know they were likely busy, but Tom was willing to let us sign in, and get our tickets to the Biltmore, so we could go ahead and visit. Again, much praise to them for that. In going the day we arrived, we beat the rain, which arrived the next day. That would have ruined our visit. So, I am truly thankful that he was okay with letting us sign in early. If they read this, thank you again for your willingness to do that. It is appreciated. The only real negative to our stay was trying to find the inn. We got to the road, but had to back up and find it because the sign leading to its road was covered by overgrowth. It needs to be trimmed, if it hasn't aleady been done so. Again sorry to Tom and Michelle for not being able to write more. I had so much more to say, but limits on here as to how much I can write limited me. But our stay was wonderful.
