Let us be a part of your story.

Welcome to the next chapter in the storied history of The Applewood Manor.

The Applewood Manor is a highly curated boutique bed and breakfast offering cycling, culinary, and business leadership experiences along with special events and event hosting. Built in 1912 and one of the longest continuously operating bed and breakfasts in Asheville, our property is situated on a small hill in the Montford Area Historic District just over a mile from downtown. This unique turn-of-the-century colonial revival house offers a private, relaxing and well-appointed retreat for discerning guests. The design aesthetic is an eclectic blend of contemporary and classic décor that is differentiated from the more traditional B&B atmosphere. The property covers just over an acre full of giant wild cherries, oaks, pines, maples and a variety of flora.

An exceptional guest experience has to start with an amazing bed replete with the finest linens. After all, the first word in bed and breakfast is bed! Next, we offer a classic breakfast made with ingredients sourced from many of the best local farms and markets. Great ingredients handled with respect are the foundation of our approach. We also attend to all the in-room small touches that are the difference between very good and outstanding. Comfort also demands meticulous attention to your safety and well-being. Our team is committed to providing an exceptionally clean environment so you can be at ease.

But there is so much more to The Applewood Manor than a great bed and a great breakfast. Beginning in 2021 with some limited availability in 2020, we will offer several exciting experiential programs to make your visit with us the most fulfilling it can be.

First, our cycling program is led by our live-in innkeeper, Jonny Brown, the 2018 USA Professional National Road Race Champion. We have world-class road and gravel bikes for rent provided by our program partner www.3tbike.com. Other services include planning and organization for group rides including food provisions, sag support, on-the-bike guides and route mapping. We have Zwift smart trainer set-ups in our bike program room for those just hoping to get in some training while traveling during colder months or in the event of inclement weather. Our cycling program will fully launch in Spring of 2021, but we’re happy and ready to accommodate cyclists and cycling groups right away. Please email cycling@applewoodmanor.com if you’re interested in this program.

Next and also launching in Spring of 2021, our culinary program starts with a classic breakfast prepared with the finest local ingredients. In the meantime and in compliance with COVID-19 safety requirements, we will provide breakfast when we can do so. And one can’t forget the coffee! Every guest room has a complete coffee and tea station along with fresh homemade cookies. Over the course of each year, we will offer a variety of special tasting dinners prepared by local and visiting well-established and up-and-coming chefs. In addition, we can make custom arrangements for your group if you’d like to have chef prepared meals or host special events. For an extra fee based on your specific request, we will be happy to prepare, lunch, dinner or a picnic basket for you or your group. Just contact us ahead of your stay to obtain a quote. Baking classes can also be arranged (Spring 2021). Please email culinary@applewoodmanor.com  if you’re interested in these programs and services.

We offer an outstanding and private venue for business leadership, team building and strategic planning off-site retreats, board meetings and other business events. If you are interested in professional facilitation for your leadership team meeting, Applewood’s owner Stephen R. Collins (view LinkedIn profile) is available to spend time with your team and develop a custom agenda. Stephen also has several standard programs he is happy to discuss with you. Please email leadership@applewoodmanor.com if you’re interested in these services.

Our house and property are a wonderful location for weddings, family reunions, charitable fund-raisers and other social gatherings. Our grounds can easily manage groups of up to 60 people outside. Inside, groups of up to 20 to 25 people would constitute maximum capacity for standing room only events. For custom dinners in our dining room, we recommend no more than 12 persons. For custom event hosting, please email events@applewoodmanor.com.
