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!
We would like to help you choose wisely, and consider the value of a bed and breakfast stay!
