Our Story


Meet the owners, Rob and Caroline Rodier

Rob is a WNC native whose family moved to the area from Vermont when he was in elementary school. Caroline, a DC native, met Rob in college at Chapel Hill and we moved to West Asheville in the late nineties. Out of necessity and a love of old houses, we started remodeling our first home a few blocks away from the Inn. Two kids, eight houses, and almost twenty years later, we are honored to have preserved this West Asheville landmark as the Inn on Westwood. We live next door in another historic home built by Richard Sharp Smith, the managing architect for the Biltmore House and many other Asheville landmarks. Running the Inn is truly a family affair. Our extended family helps with yard work. Our neighborhood bakers provide delicious breakfasts. Pristine Clean has consistently kept the place sparkling clean with their natural products. And, our friends at Fiesta Laundry keep the linens crisp and white. All of our partners are committed to making every last detail the best for our guests. We are all based in West Asheville and want visitors to love our neighborhood as much as we do. We hope to meet you soon.
