Experience our elegant style of southern hospitality and warm, personal service in our historic Arts and Crafts home. Built in 1899 by Richard Sharp-Smith, the inn has been beautifully maintained to enhance the historic character, yet provides modern comforts without sacrificing the eloquent details of its original design. Located in Historic Downtown Asheville, close to all the city has to offer, we also feature 11 working fireplaces for romantic winter getaways. We serve an exceptional three course breakfast in our elegant dining room with tables set for two, afternoon tea and wine with o’dourves, and a divine dessert awaiting as you wind down for the evening. Our stunning property is surrounded with flowers and a koi pond so our guests can enjoy the peacefulness of nature while relaxing on our large veranda, terrace or upstairs lanai. A visit to The Black Walnut Inn is a quality experience with real value and true luxury...a fond memory for you to always remember.
