Applewood Manor Inn

62 Cumberland Circle , Asheville, NC 28801-1718 USA (Show map) Diamond Collection

Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


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, within walking distance of downtown Asheville. We offer luxury accomodations, a three course gourmet breakfast, an afternoon social with snacks and wine, a music parlor with a baby grand piano, a living room with gas fireplace, board games, books and magazines, and six guest rooms with private baths .

Great location, outstanding food

5 on November 22, 2016

Applewood Manor Inn was our first choice as a place to stay while our son had minor surgery in Asheville because we needed a comfortable room with great food in a walkable neighborhood. This is our fourth stay at the Inn and it met all of our needs for a home away from home. Staying with Josh and AJ was like visiting friends. The family style breakfast was really enhanced by their garden to table initiative, providing fresh healthy food that was absolutely delicious! Great coffee, too! Staying in Montford is always a treat for us because we enjoy the nearby park and greenway trail, plus we can zip down to the nearby restaurants for dinner. Nine Mile was our favorite this time.

anniversary stay

Found this bed and breakfast to be fantastic. Had to make a last minute change in destination thanks to hurricane Matthew and the owners had a great website to make this happen. We were greeted by Joshua on arrival and got some great advice on dinner spots since I didn't have enough time to do my own research. Room was gorgeous, bed comfortable, breakfast was delicious, had a Dutch Baby for the first time! Can't wait to come back! I have to say, given so many displaced families came to the area to flee the hurricane, the owners waved the minimum night requirement and took on 2 more couples that showed up at midnight that just needed a place to crash. This kind of humanity speaks volumes.

Great times with wonderful hosts!

We just stayed for 31/2 days at the B&B and would strongly recommend it to all of you. Great ambience, fantastic rooms with seating balconies, and a fabulous hearty breakfast. Worth every minute we spent three!

Perfect place to stay in Asheville

Joshua is an excellent host. We stayed in the Granny Smith room and it was well appointed, comfortable, and modern. Spending the evening on the balcony just outside our room was fantastic. The breakfast the next day was 3 courses but light and fresh. Tucked away but minutes from downtown Asheville...Tip: There are several nooks to hide away and read/write/relax..

Memorable Trip/Stay

Breakfast at the Manor is a gastric feat

5 on July 29, 2016

My wife and I came to Asheville to explore the city and the fine dining scene. While we had wonderful meals at 3 great restaurants the breakfast served at the Manor was easily the most impressive of all. Joshua's creative servings had lots of flair and were exceptionally well prepared with ingredients mostly grown on site. Compliments! If we plan on visiting Asheville again in the future we will definitely try to come back the Applewood Manor

Wonder stay

Joshua made the stay very comfortable, also made the breakfast very memorable! Rooms were the cleanest I have had in an Inn. Twin bed room a little small but who stays in the room? Bathroom pretty small and could use a makeup mirror due to limited light in there, but that was actually my only issue. Grounds were very nice. Would love to go back there at some point.

one of the best b & b's in asheville
