Overview

Historic 16-room bed-and-breakfast with modern amenities and a convenient location in a residential Asheville nabe

The Lowdown

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 16-room Princess Anne Hotel was originally built in 1924 and was reinvented as an elegant bed-and-breakfast in 2005. Three categories of suite feature classic designs, original hardwood floors, clawfoot soaking tubs (in the Premier Suite) and a minimum of 475 square feet of space. The rooms are also infused with modern amenities such as flat-screen televisions, micro-kitchens with stovetops and mini-refrigerators, and separate showers with Ecru bath products, as well as special touches like chocolate truffles, plush bathrobes and vanity kits. Guests can relax in the living room, reading room, gardens or on one of two porches while enjoying afternoon wine and hors d’oeuvres. The changing gourmet breakfast offers a twist on traditional dishes, such as pumpkin pancakes with maple syrup, sage sausage and fresh fruit, or items like Swiss potato rosti with poached eggs, roasted tomatoes and hollandaise sauce — all served with locally roasted coffee.

In the Area

Guests can wander past the beautiful historic homes in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood, stop by the King James Public House (a local favorite pub), or get a relaxing treatment at Illusions Day Spa of Asheville, just steps away. Asheville is known for its culinary scene, craft breweries and artistic community, much of which is located in the main downtown area, about a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Two popular downtown restaurants are the Cúrate tapas bar and the Chocolate Fetish dessert shop. The River Arts District showcases local artists in more than 180 working studios in 22 historic buildings. Perched in the picturesque mountains of North Carolina, Asheville offers access to an abundance of parks and eco-attractions in the surrounding area, such as Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Linville Caverns and Chimney Rock State Park.

Excellent experience

We stayed here for an anniversary weekend and were very pleased. The hotel is very quaint, the service is excellent, and the area is very convenient. Breakfast is great and there are nearly always snacks around.

Wonderful hotel

We really enjoyed our stay at the Princess Anne Hotel. They upgraded us to a lovely room on the 3rd floor. The receptionist was delightful. They have a great happy hour with several bottles of wine and lots of appetizers. We met some very nice guests. The breakfast is also delicious. The only negative is that it is a 20 minute walk to the downtown area. We like to walk, so we didn’t mind. The parking lot on sight is a real plus!

Visit was TOO SHORT but perfect in all other ways

Our room was very nice; bed comfortable and restful. Staff could not have been nicer to deal with, from the phone reservation to the wine and cheese welcome. We were only able to book one night but that was enough to make us want to come back as soon as we can. The Princess Anne is everything a B and B or a Hotel can be. We would like give a low rating to keep it for ourselves but must be honest. Thank you for all that you were for us.
