The Yellow House on Plott Creek Road is nestled between Asheville, NC and the Smoky Mountain National Park. Our 5 acre grounds are filled with ponds and gardens, pine trees and rhododendrons, and wildlife indigenous to the mountain habitat. The main house was built in 1885 as a summer residence, and can be described as neo-classical. Several improvements have been made to the original structure, including a wrap-around veranda, 3 luxury suites and a library.

Great Value!

4.6 on January 05, 2018

We found this little gem while searching for a place to stay while touring the Asheville area. It was easy to get to and very conveniently located. The new owners are still learning the ropes, but are truly delightful and were very accommodating when we had a very late arrival. We will certainly be staying here again in the future!

Innkeeper Ken took great care of his visitors while we were all there, a two night stay. Beautiful B & B, one that we will stay at again in the near future.

Ken and Kelly are wonderful hosts. They made us feel so special with our stay (room, service, food, etc), that when we checked out, we had made two wonderful new friends!

Great stay!

Stay at Yellow House

4.0 on November 05, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Yellow House. The Inn was tastefully decorated and cozy. The Innkeeper, Ken, was especially considerate of our needs. The breakfasts were great and the social hour at night provided an opportunity to meet other guests. The only drawback was that only one suite has a television.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words and we thoroughly enjoyed having you with us! I tried to accommodate with moving rooms to the tv room as soon as I found out, we have since posted that on our booking site so that you will always be aware and yo don't end up in a room you dont want. Thank You for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you soon!! Thanks, Ken

Welcomed and Pampered

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel as if we were visiting a friends home. The main house was amazingly beautiful although we chose to stay in the Pond house and boy were we glad. We had a two story suite with two fireplaces, whirlpool tub, and a scrumptious king sized bed. Top it all off with a gourmet breakfast served in our room and we were in a bit of heaven. Would definitely stay again.

Awesome B&B

We have been staying at the Yellow House for several years, and we enjoy our stay very much. It is beautiful and Shawn makes your stay a wonderful experience. Shawn is the Yellow House. The breakfast is wonderful. Shawn and the girls do a great job. The rooms are so clean and so pretty. We always enjoy our stay at the Yellow House and our time we spend talking with Shawn.

Wonderful Stay

Easy access to the towns we wanted to visit and close to the Parkway. Shawn and staff took very good care of us. Breakfasts were great and the weather was very cooperative.

2d visit confirmed the first

We were smitten from the driveway the first time we visited. House is stately and marvelously situated, enhanced by lovely gardens. Were that a façade to a hovel, I'd come back just to chat with Shawn and devour his breakfasts. The house is old, has creaks and personality. The upstairs porch is perfect for doing nothing -- could use a scrub. The rooms are very well-appointed and thought out. Shawn clearly relishes being an exceptional host, all the while insuring guests have privacy. We look forward to future visits.
