Considered one of the best and most original interpretations of Colonial Revival architecture in Western North Carolina, Reynolds Mansion is a historic treasure not to be missed. Steeped in history with ties to Senator Robert Rice Reynolds, Evelyn Walsh McLean and the Hope Diamond, and the early small emerging population of what is now Asheville, the magnificent mansion was built in 1847 by Daniel Reynolds.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast Inn is well documented in many books and has long been considered one of the jewels of Blue Ridge Mountain historic homes and is the top-rated Asheville Bed and Breakfast.
Michael Griffith, a native of Asheville, and Billy Sanders’ genuine love of guests and entertaining have returned the mansion to its original splendor. “When we purchased Reynolds Mansion in 2009 our goal was to open it again for the public to enjoy. It is a unique property that maintains an important role in the history of the great houses of Western North Carolina. Now you can visit it and see why it holds such an important historical role.”
Now an elegant bed and breakfast, the stately mansion is open for guests and group functions. No expense has been spared to furnish the mansion in antiques and accessories, from the Grand Dining Room capable of seating up to twenty-six, to the handsomely decorated library and parlor which open onto the front entry and front porches that provide a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Majestic hemlock trees and lush bamboo umbrella the four ½ acre grounds of the B&B. Manicured gardens and porches swept with morning dew evoke romantic images of times past, when graciousness was an art form. Picturesque rooms have the indulgent elegance of pre- Civil War history with modern amenities.
Southern hospitality and beautiful surroundings make the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast Inn the perfect place to unwind or simply explore the rich culture of Asheville, NC, along with Biltmore Estate and the outdoor grandeur of Mount Mitchell, Chimney Rock, and Grandfather Mountain to mention a few.
