Stayed there July 12 & 13th 2019

We were treated like royalty – warmly greeted by owners Willie & Shawnee – a supremely comfortable room (the Fitzgerald Room) – & amazing freshly-cooked & prepared breakfasts! When we entered the room we were greeted with celebratory balloons, a fruit & cracker plate, & champagne – it was our 50th anniversary! Thank you both so much for your warm & hospitable attention.

Incomparable Hospitality!

This was my second stay at 1900 Inn on Montford, and my first under the current owners. The location is amazing – walking distance to downtown while being out of the hustle and bustle of the weekend tourist crowd. The hospitality is out of this world. Delectable breakfast, friendly guests, accommodating owners, and the music on the porch. . . It felt like we were staying with family. And the family you actually want to stay with, not those other ones. Can’t not wait to return!



I can’t say enough about this place. From the moment we walked into the inn we were greeted with a smile and kindness. The breakfast each morning was so special and amazing, the food is fabulous. You are so close to everything you need in Asheville you can walk to great restaurants. Absolutely fell in love with everything about this Inn!!

1900 out of 1900!

If there was a rating scale that went up to 1900, the 1900 Inn on Montford would score it! My girlfriend and I visited for 3 nights over Memorial Day weekend 2019. Stayed in the Fitzgerald room, which had a great blend of historic and modern (aka the spectacular bathroom!) features. Breakfast each morning was awesome, featuring a delightful 3 courses. Hosts Shawnie and Willy were wonderful and made us feel very welcome. (Willy is an avid cyclist, and joined me on a ride up to and on the Blue Ridge Parkway!). The entire property is beautiful. Hospitality top-notch. Complimentary wines were served on the front porch each evening during the social hour from 6-7. On Saturday there was even a local band that played for us! Will definitely come back.

Would not think to stay anywhere else in Asheville!!!

Where do I start… This place is fabulous! From the amazing Fitzgerald room, to the wonderful breakfasts made by Shawnie, the great conversations with Willie, the beautiful home, the great espresso maker and the closeness to town, this place is unbeatable! Thank you so much to our great hosts, Shawnie and Willie. From the moment we came they were nothing, but friendly, helpful and kind. We arrived on a Saturday and they were having an acoustic band on the huge porch that evening with free wine and beer for all guests. We told Shawnie that we may not be able to attend because we were there to visit with family and were planning on meeting them that evening. Shawnie asked us to bring them over so they too, could enjoy the music and refreshments which was just above and beyond! The Fitzgerald room was spacious, charming and quiet. The bed and linens make for a perfect night of sleep. The bathroom was unbelievable! From the roomy triangular-shaped whirlpool tub to the overhead rain shower it was like bathing in heaven! Oh, and the breakfasts! They were like heaven, too! Shawnie is a great cook and Willie a fabulous server who paid attention to our every need. We even got to have breakfast on the wonderful porch each morning. Who knew breakfast could be that good! I have nothing, but oodles of positive feedback to give about the 1900 Inn on Montford and it’s owners! We will be coming, again and can’t think of any place we would rather stay!


Great property, great location, great hospitality

Just stayed this week at the Cloisters room. Very comfortable and spacious. Great with dogs too. Less than a mile from downtown in a great little tree lined street and neighborhood. Owners are outstanding and the food is excellent. Thank you for the hospitality

Wonderfully relaxed stay

We recently stayed in the Edith Wharton room for 3 nights at the Inn, and we felt like we were home the entire time. The convenience of the special coffee machine in the sunroom, along with the “TO DIE FOR COOKIES!!” added to our experience. Willy and Shawnie were perfect hosts. I also enjoyed the social hour and getting to know the other guests. The Inn is conveniently located near the Biltmore Estate where we spent most of our visit. The trip was a wonderful experience nd I would recommend this Inn to anyone!

Great weekend!

My wife booked the weekend for our anniversary. What a nice surprise from the moment we arrived late, Willy greeted us outside and showed us everything we needed to know. Great coffee machine, great breakfast spacious rooms. We met several other couples and they loved it as well. Shawnee and Willy are wonderful hosts. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Highly recommend 1900 Inn at Montfort.

Hospitality, Luxury, and the Cookies!

We enjoyed a magical Christmas holiday at The Inn on Montford.

Willy and Shawnie understand that a perfect stay is made up of all the little things, so they pay attention to every detail.

We stayed in the Cloisters and loved sitting by the fireplace, the huge steam shower, and the comfortable bed with the BEST sheets ever!

Hearty and delicious breakfasts served in the elegant dining room prepared us for each day of adventuring in Asheville, or reading in the study!

The Saturday night music reception was exceptional. I found myself smiling through the entire performance.

Finally, the cookies. In the sun room there are magical jars of never ending homemade cookies and a Jura espresso machine. I tried to replicate the cookies when I got home, but so far I have not been successful. I guess I’ll need to return for a little more research!

I can’t wait to return!

Like visiting Friends

This was a return trip after many years and it was as delightful with the new owners as with the last! Great Amenities and the most delicious breakfasts! We had a nice wet bar area in the carriage house & soaks in the Jetted Tub. We thoroughly enjoyed the Sat. evening music on the porch. Wonderful neighborhood & such a lovely place to unwind.

Southern Hospitality Extraordinaire

We recently stayed at the Inn on Montford and were truly blown away! Shawnee and Willy exceeded all expectations! From the morning breakfast to the daily “front porch social”, and the absolutely amazing rooms we couldn’t have asked for anything better!

We will be back!!

Mini vacation in Asheville

My husband and I met friends from CT. for a mini vacation in Asheville!

We couldn’t have chosen a more lovely Bed and Breakfast, than The Inn on Montford!

The inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the rooms were wonderful with gas fireplaces and the BEST sheets, ever!

Willie and Shawnie were the perfect hosts, with helpful tips for our stay in Asheville and delish breakfasts each morning!

We will definitely be back!

Enchanted Christmas at 1900 Inn

My parents and I spent 3 nights at this majestic inn for Christmas, 2018. From the moment we arrived, it felt like home. My grandmother passed away this year and my mother did not want to spend Christmas doing our normal routine, so we decided to spend our holiday in Asheville, NC. When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Inn was just as beautiful, if not more so, than the photos online. Every inch was decorated for the holidays. The O’Henry room was so cozy, warm and inviting that I found it hard to leave each morning. I had my own fireplace and a gorgeous and spacious private bathroom. The bed was incredibly comfortable and every night of sleep was perfect peace.

I’d like to particularly thank the owners for their incredible sensitivity to my food allergies. From the welcoming GF White Choc Macadamia Nut cookies to an individualized breakfast every morning, they made sure I was well fed with heavenly omelets, quiches, muffins and other delights. I can’t thank them enough for making Christmas so special for my family this year. Much love. We will be back soon!!
