The Inn is perfectly located in the Historic District of Montford, circa 1895. An ideal jumping – off point for the City (only a half mile walking distance) with its abundant shops, fantastic restaurants, and spectacular galleries. Montford offers easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and all the main highways. It is only 2.5 miles to the Biltmore Estate entrance and the Biltmore Village, yet is surrounded by a lovely residential neighborhood with tennis courts, greenways and the longest-running Shakespeare theater in the State!
History of Black Walnut Inn
The Black Walnut Bed and Breakfast Inn was designed and built by Richard Sharp-Smith in 1899. He was the supervising architect for the Biltmore Estate. It is a grand example of his interpretation of the English -shingle style with its half-timbering, original diamond-paned windows, and pebbledash exterior.The inn has been beautifully maintained and is restored to enhance the historic character, yet offer modern comforts like air conditioning, wi-fi, and private baths en-suite without sacrificing the original details!
