We loved the character of this room and would recommend it. There is plenty of space, cute antique decor, and nice little extras. The recommendations on food and beer were also very good.

Historic House, enjoyed stay

  • 4 of 5

The room we stayed in was very nice. Collin left us a bottle of wine and a few beers to enjoy, as well as some delicious bread and hard boiled eggs for breakfast. Also a Keurig with choices of tea and coffee, and a fridge, are in the room. Something to be aware of is that this is no longer a bed and breakfast with multiple rooms available, it is one room that is available for rent, so no communal breakfast, but breakfast is left in the room instead. There is a nice porch to sit on which we utilized. We would have loved a small table and a couple chairs inside the room to eat breakfast, play cards etc, but other then that we really enjoyed our stay.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The room was clean and the bed was cozy, had a great weekend. The host provided a lot of extra “modern” touches in the historic decor room (robes, coffee maker, flat screened tv, basket of treats, beverages in the mini fridge, etc). If you are looking for a room close to walking distance of downtown this is a great option, would definitely stay there again!

Super cozy with so much charm

  • 5 of 5

My and my friend visited Asheville for 2 days and this place was way over our expectations. Perfect place to stay if you want the get into the Asheville feeling. The house is old and the floors and walls are far from straight. But everything is clean and fresh. Big bedroom with a super comfy big bed! (King size) Bathroom is also big and beautiful. The room and house has so much charm and the family that owns the house was very friendly and helpful. I have stayed at different bed and breakfast in Asheville but this will be my first pick from now on.

Charming Hdden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Aunt Betsy's room was the perfect spot for our weekend trip to Asheville! It was super convenient to downtown and the surrounding attractions. We had a private entrance at the back of the house with our own deck. The room had the most comfortable bed and was stocked with everything you would need for a weekend stay! We had local craft beers in the fridge, a bottle of wine, a coffee machine, and a breakfast basket with some delicious homemade bread. Collin was very helpful and accommodating, providing suggestions and answering questions promptly. We will definitely be back!

Cute and cozy with a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Really the only downside is that Google maps had a hard time finding the address provided. Instead we had to type in Rankin House Inn. Otherwise, super comfy bed, great location, excellent hospitality. Would absolutely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very kind words and feedback! We have added some wording to our ad in an effort to clarify that the entrance and parking are located off of Woodlawn Ave. We hope to have you back again!
