The Applewood is one of the longest continuously operating bed and breakfast style hotels in Asheville having transformed from a private residence in the late 1980’s. The house was completed in 1912 by Captain John Adams Perry who was the great nephew of brothers Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry and Commodore Matthew Galbraith Perry. The New England Style Colonial Revival two-story structure is frame construction with a stone masonry foundation, cedar shake siding featuring a pediment entrance supported on Doric columns and flanking porches. The main level of the Manor consists of a large entry hall from front to back, parlor, living room, formal dining room, butler’s pantry, half bath, kitchen and basement stairs. There are fireplaces in the parlor, living room and dining room. The second level consists of a large hallway, built-in linen storage cabinets, stairs to the third level, and four of our 6 guest rooms, each with its private bathroom. There are fireplaces and balconies for all rooms except the Northern Spy on the second level. The third level consists of the large one room Winesap Suite with a luxury bath and sitting area. The house is approximately 6,000 square feet in size. We offer bespoke guest experiences for cycling, culinary and business leadership. We maintain a fleet of incredible 3T Exploro bikes for our guests to rent and can put together any type of cycling experience you wish. Our kitchen was fully renovated in early 2021 and is now a chef’s dream. Enjoy our cuisine or come inside and cook with us. Our house is a perfect venue to for intimate private events including weddings, receptions, family reunions, a friends’ gathering, charity events and any number of other themes.
We are committed to delivering an outstanding B&B experience to each and every guest.
