I truly can not say enough wonderful things about our stay at 1900 Inn. It was our first time staying at a B&B and we enjoyed every moment! The owners are absolutely wonderful (you couldn’t ask for nicer people!) and the breakfasts were delicious! (I miss them already!) We stayed in the “Fitzgerald” room and truly were impressed (clean, well organized, comfortable…what else does one need?!) The location was perfect as we wanted to see all that Asheville had to offer (it was our first time visiting the area). We rented a car so having on-site parking with a central location was an added bonus. Oh, and the adorable decor! (It was packed with history and character which is always appreciated!) I will happily return to 1900 during our next Asheville getaway!
Truly a wonderful experience!
We were here for our wedding weekend and I can’t say enough positive things about it! Donna and the owners Ron & Lynn are so welcoming, the rooms are top notch and well kept, and the breakfast is gourmet! We love that they are dog friendly and welcomed our fur babies. Can’t wait to visit again and thank you for the adorable cow dairy creamer!
Would give it a higher rating if I could!
First let me say that as of December 2017, Ron and Lynn will no longer be the owners of this property. However, their wonderful late afternoon/evening hostess, Donna, said the new owners recognize it’s a successful business model and are planning on following the current format. I was also extremely pleased to hear they are retaining the current staff whose experience will be invaluable in helping to maintain a top-notch B&B.
That being said, from the moment I made my reservation, communication was ongoing and informative. They made sure I knew where to park, inquired on my arrival time and also made sure I didn’t have any special dietary needs or restrictions. This is my third Asheville B&B in the Montford area and by far my favorite. The little details in their approach pushed them over the top.
My welcome was very detailed and informative, covering the sunroom and other house amenities, social events and my room amenities. From tea delivery outside my door in a quilted “cozy” each morning, to the towel warmers in the bathroom and the delightful, generous basket of continental breakfast goodies I received due to my leaving early my last day, my stay was extremely memorable. I also appreciated the darkness of my room, The O’Henry. It was so cozy and quaint. I felt totally relaxed, taken care of and at home.
The entire Inn was extremely clean and in great shape, the staff was helpful, warm and inviting, the food was delicious and all areas of service was top-notch.
It’s obvious Ron and Lynn take great pride in a job well-done, as does the rest of their staff. It has become my B&B of choice in Asheville.
Holiday Wonderland at 1900 Inn on Montford
What a beautiful Victorian home! From the moment we walked in the front door to the roaring fires and lit Christmas Trees throughout the house, we knew we were in for a treat. The new owners , Wily and Shawntie, were extremely accommodating and gracious.
A long weekend in William Morris
My girlfriend and I decided to use this last weekend as a late Valentine’s getaway, and the hosts at 1900 made it everything it could possibly be. From the second we pulled into the driveway, we knew we were going to enjoy our stay at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast within walking distance of downtown. Shawnie showed us our room in the cottage out back, and even gave us a small bottle of champagne with some heart balloons to share in our Valentine’s experience.
Unfortunately, my girlfriend was sick during the trip, but that just meant we got to stay longer in the beautiful room. Heated floors, a steam shower, a gas fireplace and a water jet bath combined with a lovely king size bed were all well used as we spent most of the weekend inside so that she could rest. My only real complaint would be that the TV they provided in the room was a little on the small side, and kind of tucked away in the corner where it was awkward to watch from the bed – and that the wifi was rather slow and made streaming netflix onto the laptop I brought. But we solved this issue by simply watching some DVDs instead.
What else can I say about this wonderful place? The fact that they brought us breakfast every morning (if you’re in the cottage out back, you get your breakfast brought to you, whereas those in the main house get to dine together – though we were invited to join the main house diners if we wanted to), and honestly, the chorizo breakfast casserole they made on Saturday still has my mouth watering, and they happily omitted the blueberries from the pancakes to satisfy a berry allergy we have.
Emily, the young lady that works for them, was amazing at helping us book reservations and suggesting local places to eat around town for us, and did her best to sit and listen to what we wanted out of our trip and customizing her responses just for us.
Lastly, I can say we were pleasantly surprised by the Saturday night social hour when they had some local folk/bluegrass musicians come in and play some songs for us by the massive fireplace inside the main house while Willy insured our wine glasses were constantly filled.
It’s one of the more expensive trips these college kids have gone on out of their own pocket, but every penny we spent was well worth it, and we plan on going back again as soon as we can afford to take some more time off.
