From the hundreds of thousands of acres of virtually untouched wilderness surrounding the city to the unique blend of gothic, victorian, and contemporary architecture, you will never run out of things to explore in picturesque western North Carolina. 

If you are visiting our city, you will want to stay somewhere that is as unique as the region itself. The 1900 Inn on Montford is a bed and breakfast that embodies what makes this area special. Here is what you need to know about the 1900 Inn on Montford. 

The 1900 Inn on Montford in North Asheville

The Village of Montford was incorporated in 1893 with a population of just fifty people. However, it was incorporated into the rapidly growing city of Asheville in 1905. Nevertheless, Montford became a popular neighborhood for people who loved the hills and mountain views north of downtown. 

Montford is often known as a Victorian neighborhood; however, the architectural styles are actually quite varied. Over 600 structures were built between 1890 and 1920, featuring everything from Victorian to Gothic to Greek-Revival to contemporary architectural styles. 

The 1900 Inn on Montford has the perfect balance of charm and modern amenities. From their website:

“Step onto the bed and breakfast grounds, and you might notice that there’s a story behind everything you see here. We’ll tell you those stories and show you around, but first, enjoy a scratch-made cookie or a locally roasted espresso in the beautiful light of the inn’s sunroom.”

The inn is just minutes away from the Reedy Creek Greenway, downtown Asheville, art galleries, museums, restaurants, and everything that attracted you to visit the city in the first place. It is a wonderful place in which to relax with a glass of wine after you have spent the day exploring the region.
