“A fantastic home away from home”
Reviewed 11 July 2009

Upon arriving at the Applewood Manor for a relaxing weekend getaway, we were blown away by the charm of this historic home. Nancy and Larry, the innkeepers, welcomed us immediately and made us feel right at home. We arrived in the afternoon for the wine and cheese spread (a daily Applewood treat). After wine, we had a tour of the home and then settled into our suite for some time to unwind. The rooms are charming with historic details yet modern amenities such as flat screen TVs and iPod docking stations. Over the course of our stay, we got to know Nancy and Larry as well as their two dogs. Oh what a delight! We were also treated to Nancy's kitchen wizardry. The granola and french toast are out of this world! After breakfast on our first day, we were excited to explore Asheville. Nancy and Larry offered great recommendations for shopping, lunch, and site seeing. We hope to return to Applewood this fall!

Asheville, NC is a step back into a more genteel and comfortable time. Applewood Manor Inn superbly compliments the relaxed, scenic setting of Asheville. Entering Applewood Manor, you are warmly greeted by Nancy and Larry Merrill. Having a chance to unwind from your travel with a cool refreshment, Nancy gives each guest a delightful tour of Applewood. The tour concludes at your well appointed room which has a fresh smell of lavender.
After a moment of relaxation, Nancy and Larry await downstairs to assist with any restaurant or tour reservations a guest might need. They are fully stocked with helpful maps to explore the town, and their directions and recommendations are impeccable.
A highlight of our stay was the breakfast and morning conversation with not only our hosts, but each guest. Nancy and Larry made each guest feel like one of the family. A more picturesque, relaxing and delightful weekend may never be found.
Drop by the Applewood Manor Inn Bed and Breakfast and give Nancy and Larry a big Texas "Howdy" from us. Fondly, Paul and Sue

Our first experience at a B & B, and it was wonderful! We were greeted at the door and made to feel comfortable and pampered till the moment we checked out! The rooms were all beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. We sat out on our own private balcony when we wanted alone time and lounged in the inviting rooms and porches when we were feeling more social. Larry and Nancy were always willing to sit down and chat with us and share info on places to go and see in Ashville or share a funny story. Breakfasts were FABULOUS! Nancy prepared three course scrumptious breakfasts with homemade breads and delicious fresh fruit topped with homemade granola...yum! Larry served us, and made sure we were full before starting our day. A lovely wine and cheese assortment was served every evening before we started our nights. The grounds were lovely and spacious. A terrific double hammock and beautiful vine covered arbor made the grounds as inviting as the house!
Applewood Manor was a wonderful experience for us and one we look forward to returning to in the future!

A delightful bed and breakfast with exceptional hosts. Our room was well appointed and comfortable with a beautiful view of the gardens from our second floor balcony. To our amazement, the bathroom was exceptionally large with plenty of counter space and a jacuzzi tub.
In all, we enjoyed starting and ending our days at the Applewood Manor Inn Bed & Breakfast as we explored the beautiful city of Asheville.

If you are looking for an elegant, peaceful, and friendly B&B this is the place! From the moment we arrived we instantly felt welcome and relaxed. Larry and Nancy are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. The accomodations were lovely and the food was delicious. I would suggest a room with a private balcony. The mountain views were breathtaking!
Asheville is a wonderful place. If you are looking for great restaurants, I would suggest 9 Mile and the Tupelo Honey Cafe. My only regret is that we were not able to stay longer!

There are too many great things to say about the Applewood Manor Inn. The rooms are impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. The home cooked breakfast is absolutely delicious. And Nancy and Larry are wonderful hosts leaving no detail left out for a perfect weekend get away. If you are looking for good conversation - they are available, looking for what to do - just ask, want a quiet uninterrupted weekend - they will accommodate. The grounds are beautiful and inviting. Several times we have done nothing but lay around in the hammock all day reading and napping. We've stayed at the Applewood Manor Inn many times now and have loved each experience there!

Nancy and Larry are the most professional and charming inn owners that we have ever experienced in our travels of B&Bs. Their beautiful B&B is tastefully decorated providing a comfortable, warm, and inviting atmosphere. They offer stellar service from orientation of the facility and WiFi availability, to suggestions regarding activities, entertainment, shopping, and where to dine. Nancy’s cooking is extraordinary! Each morning there is a three course breakfast that you rarely find of such high quality and care, not only in the preparation, but also in the presentation. Larry’s entertainment skills are quite remarkable.
