The Inn on Westwood is a wonderful oasis of tranquility within walking distance to all the excitement of West Asheville. Beautiful and comfortable furnishings and décor and a great kitchen to cook in with all dishes and utensils you could need. Lastly, the Inn has a WONDERFUL backyard. All lovely. Thank you!

We spent a week at the Inn on Westwood (both suites combined) in early August. It was the perfect home base for our family of 5 - my husband and me, my sister and brother-in-law and my 17 year old niece. We were looking to both explore Asheville and relax and the Inn provided the perfect accommodation. It is close to downtown Asheville (less than 10 minutes drive), the River Arts District (long walk) and West Asheville (just down the street with restaurants a short walk away). We spent a couple of hours every day reading or napping in between activities and the space was large enough for us all to gather or to find quiet time on our own. This property is SO CLEAN and quiet. We seriously could not find a single bit of dust or dirt anywhere. The furnishings are antique but the beds were extremely comfortable. Both of the bedrooms in the Bennett Suite had full-sized beds while the Atkinson Suite had a full bed in one room and a King in the other. Both bathrooms (1 in each suite) were spacious with plenty of towels and both kitchens (again 1 in each suite) were well-stocked with cookware and utensils as well as snacks and drinks which was amazing especially upon our arrival. We spent time both on the back deck which had a gorgeous mountain view and rocking on the front porch watching the flow of walking traffic go by. We all agreed that this was the best place we've ever stayed as a group. The only small improvement for our family would have been more comfortable seating options in the back room of the Atkinson Suite. This room had the most relaxed and comfortable seating options but there weren't enough comfy chairs for all of us to sit in there at one time. Ron and Darlene were very helpful. We arrived about a half hour before check-in and Ron came by to make sure we were settling in and to open up the door between the suites so that we could use the house as one big space which was great. They also took care of an outdoor chair that had a wasp hive immediately for us. They left us alone the rest of the week other than dropping off delicious pastries each morning which was a highlight (we booked before this was discontinued). We weren't sure how quiet it would be if renting one suite only with other guests in the second suite since we had the whole house. Overall, we LOVED our stay at the Inn on Westwood and highly recommend it!

A perfect situation. Comfortable beds, great linens and nice showers/bathrooms. The sunroom and the deck were fantastic spots to enjoy the sunset. The southern hospitality of a delicious sweet loaf of bread each morning as well as the OJ, yogurt, water and wine, were so welcoming each day of our stay. I would stay again and recommend this beautiful home to anyone interested in visiting Asheville.

We cannot say enough amazing things about our stay here. Everything from start to finish was perfect - we came with three young children and they had the time of their lives. The inn is set in a great location, just outside of downtown and within walking distance of a great downtown area of its own. We spent a day hiking in Pisgah and felt like we were never too far from home. Our kids loved their morning delivery of "sweet treats". You are never quite sure what you are going to get when you book but this was above and beyond what we were anticipating. We were able to host friends (who happen to own an amazing brewery just on the other side of the river - Zillicoah) over for dinner without ever feeling like we were climbing over each other. The home is incredible and full of history and they have put so much love into the house. We cannot wait to come back up for another visit!

The Inn at Westwood was in a great location, quiet at night, and within minutes from several great places. We loved the morning breakfast complete with great treats from the local bakeries. Beer and wine in the fridge just made the place better than we could have hoped. We will definitely look to stay here again.
- Daniel, March 2019
The Inn was beautiful and in a great location. Just a short walk to good restaurants, coffee, etc. and a short Uber to downtown Asheville. The inn itself was gorgeous, clean, and the amenities were great. The pastries in the morning were an especially nice touch, as were the water, wine, beer, snacks, etc. that were provided. The innkeepers were also extremely nice and helpful in general, especially when our flight out was cancelled and we had to stay an extra day because of a snow storm! Overall, I highly recommend staying here!

The Inn on Westwood is everything you could ever want... and then some. We stayed in both suites (which can be joined to form one large home!) for our family Thanksgiving in AVL. There was so much well-designed space, we could have even hosted our dinner there! Our compliments to Rob, Caroline, and Luci for a wonderfully thoughtful space... it was stunning how well they preserved the unique historical aspects of the house while still adding modern amenities to make a stay so comfortable and easy. The Inn has lots of personality and is located in a really exciting location - West Asheville - walkable to tons of great restaurants, a few shops, and lots of exploring. You are totally secluded on the property, yet so close to everything you could want. (Everyone has mentioned the pastries, which are a wonderful touch - Hole Doughnuts BLEW my mind...) The next time we are in the area, The Inn on Westwood will be our first choice for accommodations.
-Meagan, November 2018
This is an extremely relaxing environment with beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. The innkeepers provide little extras that really make the stay special. We loved the fact that after a long drive from Maryland, there was wine and beer provided. We didn't have to go out searching for a store immediately but instead could take our time and relax. We felt at "home" right away. The location is close to every place that we were going. The extra advantage was off-street parking. We highly recommend this Inn.
-Marian, October 2018
The Inn at Westwood was the PERFECT place to stay for our first trip to Asheville. We had a girls trip planned around a dear friends wedding. There were so many great places to walk to from here and Downtown was not a far drive at all. The place was so spacious, clean, and unique! We loved it! And the special touches of having amazing baked goods from local bakeries put this place over the top. I definitely recommend this space for future Asheville adventures.
-Coleen, July 2018
The pictures and description of the place don’t begin to do it justice! Beautiful setting, service, and amenities. The apartment was spacious, gorgeously decorated, kid friendly, and spotlessly clean. The small touches like local coffee, beer and pastries only added to the special stay!
-Eric, October 2017
Beautiful historic home and well renovated. Spacious, clean and great view of the mountains. You won't be able to find a better East West Asheville spot. Easy walking to Owl Bakery, Pizza Mind, Taco Billy, and Villagers...our favorite spots. Oh, and Hole Donuts!
-Karen, October 2017
The house and view are breathtaking. They pay attention to every detail, we'll definitely be back again.
-Kerry, September 2017
This is a wonderful historic grand house with a perfect design. The neighborhood is casual and hip also close to downtown Asheville but a little removed so it's relaxed and laid back. There are restaurants and bars within walking distance. Wonderful hosts' who met us and respond quickly to any questions. And they dropped off breakfast pastries in the mornings. I will definitely want to stay here next time we visit Asheville.
-Eugene, August 2017
Gorgeously appointed, beautifully comfortable, I can't say enough good things about these wonderful accommodations and terrific hosts. Highly recommend!!! And I'll return if I can. Asheville is terrific.
-Janet, August 2017
The Inn is a rare find! The house (more like a mansion) is a historic treasure. Quiet and relaxed neighborhood. Great view of the mountains. Decadent pastries delivered every morning. The donuts were even warm when they arrived! We recommend the Inn to anyone who loves history and architecture, and appreciates a unique stay.
-Alexis, August 2017
We absolutely loved everything! Luci was super accommodating and hospitable. She met us at the property and greeted us with her keys and a tour of the house - including the goodies of wine, beer and snacks. The house is absolutely charming, very clean and was perfect for a couples retreat. We didn't miss not having a tv, instead spending time with amazing company and a few bottles of wine. And...the pastries...oh the pastries! They came free every morning from local bakeries and donut shops so fresh that the bag was still warm. We would definitely recommend the Inn!
-Victoria, July 2017
If you are on the fence about where to stay in Asheville, go ahead and do yourself a favor and book here. We do not have enough room in the review box to describe how wonderful this place is! From the morning pastries to the wine and beer in the fridge upon arrival, we felt like we were at home rather than a guest. The location is great for getting around Asheville, and its super close to the West Asheville area and only a few miles to downtown. We can't say enough good things about this place, and can't wait to come back!
Andrew, June 2016
Loved the place! Loads of character. Great location and exactly as advertised. Well appointed and nice personal touches.
- Matthew, February 2016
The Inn on Westwood (Bennett Suite) was absolutely sublime. It's positioned in an ideal location for exploring West Asheville and just a short car ride from downtown. The Innkeeper, Molly, met us when we arrived, got us settled in, and delivered fresh pastries to us every morning. The kitchen was stocked with local beer/wine and plenty of snacks. Truly loved our stay here, and would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Asheville!
- Daniel, January 2016
The Inn at Westwood was simply amazing. The home is absolutely stunning and wonderfully spacious. My wife, our two boys and I took a last minute vacation to Asheville and this couldn't have been better. The boys had a great time playing in the play room with all sorts of board games and small toys, while my wife and I enjoyed a few great beers (that Rob, Caroline and Molly had graciously left for us) in the living room. Every morning around 8:30we were treated to some pastries or donuts which were delicious (a sesame seed donut...so good...who knew!). The hospitality was second to none. Rob met us Friday night as we got in late, but he was there to show us around at 9 PM. Even more so as we weren't sure about the weather over the weekend, he texted a few additional options that would be great for kids. All in all this was a perfect place for us to stay, set in a great part of West Asheville, so you are super close to good eats and drinks and then just a short drive to the River Arts as well as downtown. As I said to Rob Friday night, I think we found our new go to spot when we come to Asheville.
- Adam, September 2015
Great place, friendly and helpful hosts who were available as needed, but never overly so. Lovely and roomy apartment, great modern kitchen. Quiet, convenient, can walk to some decent shops including Walk and Battle Cat Cafe. Would most definitely stay again, highly recommended apartment and hosts
- Jeff, September 2015
The Bennett Suite is one of two in the Atkinson House - according to a book on historical Asheville houses "West Asheville's most interesting older house". The house is beautifully restored. The suite is spacious and decorated throughout with antiques. Our innkeeper Molly made us feel right at home with morning pastries and suggestions for excursions, and a stocked kitchen. The location is one block from fun restaurants and shops on Haywood Road, which overall could be described as eclectic as it seems to be in a rapid transition from a low-rent to a high-rent district. That said, it is quite comfortable to walk there. For city experiences Downtown and the River Arts District are minutes away by car. For nature experiences try the NC Arboretum with its Bonsai exhibit, which is only 15 minutes away.
- Rick, August 2015
The Inn on Westwood was wonderful. The hosts gave us a tour of both suites, and I would happily stay again in either. The pictures definitely don't do this place justice. The location makes traveling via driving or Uber very easy, including to downtown. There are also several stores and restaurants within walking distance. There is plenty of private on-site parking, which is rare for much of Asheville.
- Michael, July 2015
This was our first experience with AirBnB and based on our experience at Inn on Westwood, we are totally sold. Everything was great starting from the first contact extending all the way through to the final day. The Host and Innkeeper were gracious and helpful. The Bennett suite was perfect for our needs including a great fully stocked kitchen, extremely comfortable beds, and a beautiful bathroom (great towels and Aveda products). Thanks to Molly for daily muffins/bread from West End Bakery. West Asheville is great for a more hip experience. Great eating options (check out Sunny Point and Nine Mile) and very quick ride to downtown/Biltmore. There is no doubt we will be back to Inn on Westwood.
- Charles, June 2015
The Atkinson Suite is beautiful. We can certainly appreciate the time and care you spent selecting the color, materials and furniture. The view from the porch is spectacular! You have a lovely home and we will be back again. We will be sharing this with our friends in Wilmington!
- Dave and Susan, August 2016
Our stay in the Atkinson Suite was such a treat. We loved Asheville and it was so nice to have a lovely spacious home to come back to after days of exploring. My one year old son loved the space to run around, especially mornings on the patio porch.
We have already sent the link to family and friends who may want to visit Asheville in the future and we will definitely return. Luci (the Inn Keeper) was so kind and helpful. We loved chatting with her and the breakfast treats are a delight!
- Ed, Janice, Jacquelyn and Asheford, July 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Atkinson Suite! The accommodations were awesome! We loved the charm and character of the décor and furnishing. We loved coming ‘home’ after our Asheville excursions. Without a doubt if we were to visit this area again we would look to you first. Luci (the Inn Keeper) was exceptional in her communication and helpfulness.
- David and Lola, June 2016
We had a great time in Asheville, so much to do and see. Molly was a great host and the Atkinson suite at Westwood is larger than the photos give credit, well appointed, warm and very nice and clean. Good coffee and snacks were left out for us and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you. We will stay again next time we come.
- Alastair, December 2015
Our stay here was absolutely wonderful! We were in town for a graduation but staying at the Inn on Westwood made it feel like a weekend getaway. Our hosts have thought of everything and we wanted for nothing! They have gone above and beyond to make their guests feel completely at home....actually better than home.
- Melanie, December 2015
We had a fantastic stay at the Inn on Westwood in the Atkinson Suite! It is beautiful and felt like home. The hosts went above and beyond to think of everything we'd need! Having pastries delivered in the AM was a great touch! The inn is also a great location and we were able to walk to dinner our first night! Will definitely visit again.
- Liz, December 2015
Excellent stay! The Inn on Westwood was perfect from the moment we arrived. There was beer cold and the wine was available in red or white. The home was spacious yet cozy. The lack of a television was perfect, it allowed for more conversation and time towards game nights. Molly was there promptly each morning at 8:30 and we looked forward to the pastry to accompany our morning coffee. We would absolutely stay at the Inn on Westwood again!
- Mandy, November 2015
If I had one word to describe the Inn on Westwood, it would be "amazing". Starting with Molly's awesome recommendations on places to go, her friendly welcome upon arrival, and super fast communication along the way added up to a stress free booking and stay. The Inn itself is nothing short of stunning. Staying there felt like living in the pages of a Southern Living magazine, and I'm pretty sure I've never been anywhere cleaner in my life. To top it all off, the kitchen was well stocked with organic foods and every morning around 8:30 a delicious package of local pastries or donuts were waiting for is to consume in the gorgeous kitchen or on the scenic porch. All and all I'd say we couldn't have dreamed up a better place to stay. We'd gladly stay here again! Heck, we didn't even want to leave in the first place ;)
- Curtis, October 2015
Our recent stay at Inn on Westwood could not have been better. The property, which appeared to be recently renovated, was spacious and stylish. The historical residence and traditional furnishings were offset by its location in the hipper, trendier West Asheville neighborhood -- yet still only a few minutes drive from downtown Asheville and nearby restaurants and popular attractions, such as the Biltmore Estate. We spent the weekend with another couple, but never felt crowded due to the ample living space. The bedrooms and modern kitchen were large, and our unit contained not one, but two sitting areas, not to mention a comfortable patio deck where we relaxed and spent the majority of our time. Great place! Great location! Highly recommended.
