Nothing delighted us more than the attentive but non-intrusive service my wife and I received while staying here. We had a room downstairs right off the main living area. It had a nice modern bathroom and easy access to the common area of the house. The breakfasts were amazing, and the evening cheese/cracker/fruit tray with a nice glass of wine was wonderful before we headed out in the evenings for dining around town. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Asheville.

We enjoyed our stay at the Albermarle. Fabrizio, the owner and Cindy, the breakfast cook did an outstanding job and were very attentive to our needs. The room was lovely with a new upscale shower. We enjoyed sitting by the fire and having a glass of wine with our host. (The evening cookies his wife baked were outstanding.) Breakfast was in several courses and the host was very attentive to the fact I don't eat meat or cheese. Fabrizio's dinner suggestions were spot-on We had several minor mechanical issues, but they were handled quickly. The location of the inn is a very nice one, in a lovely residential neighborhood, just a short walk to the Grove Park Inn, where we enjoyed the Xmas decorations.

Although I have stayed at the Albemarle Inn many times, this was my first visit with the new owners, whom I found to be attentive and delightful people. Fabrizio entertained us with stories from his native land of Italy, and Rosemary was equally impressive with her culinary skills and hostess capabilities. These are genuine nice people, and their inn is both beautiful and well run. We enjoyed Juliette’s chamber, with its tastefully wallpapered interior, romantic canopied bed, and private balcony overlooking the front of the inn The Albemarle is just a short walk from the Grove Park Inn, which is always fun to visit, especially without the hassle of dealing with a car! The inn is also convenient to all downtown activities, restaurants, and shops, so it is just a perfect place to stay when visiting Asheville. If you enjoy the uniqueness of a grand old inn, don’t miss the Albemarle!

We stayed here for two nights and wish we could have stayed longer!!! This is a beautiful historic home in a great location, just five minutes from downtown. We stayed in the Juilet's Chamber room and everything about it was beautiful! The house was very clean and the staff was very attentive. Rosemary even baked cookies every evening. The breakfast was also out of this world! I would definitely recommend and we will be back to visit!

The Garden Room was beautiful, and perfect for three of us on a girls trip. Rhonda, Rosemary and Simon the Inn cat made it truly feel like being a guest in someone's home. Breakfasts were delicious. We were sorry to have booked such a short stay.
