Welcome to 1847 Blake House

A Premier Asheville Bed and Breakfast, Wedding & Event Venue

You are invited to escape to Asheville, NC’s 1847 Blake House Inn Bed & Breakfast, one of the oldest houses in the city. In 2010, Blake House was listed on the National Register of Historic places for its significant architectural value.

As South Asheville’s Dog Friendliest B&B, Blake House Inn is one of the few Asheville bed and breakfasts that welcomes dogs with no size restrictions. We have 6 dog friendly guestrooms for our four-legged guests to choose from and all breeds are encouraged. We also have a resident cat, Rocky, (he stays out of guestrooms) so guests with allergies should be cautious before making a reservation.

Convenient, Quiet Location

This Asheville bed and breakfast inn is located in south Asheville, within the city limits, but just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown so you can relax and rejuvenate. The house sits on 1.3 acres and is next to the beautiful Jake Rusher Park. Blake House Inn is a short 10 minute drive from the famed Biltmore Estate and a 15 minute drive from downtown (Biltmore is between Blake House and downtown Asheville). With our rivers, rugged mountains, bike trails, clean air, and friendly people, Asheville is the ideal place to find rest and adventure, all in the same place. We are just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, Chimney Rock Park, Pisgah National Forest, Great Smokey Mountains National Park, Mt. Mitchell State Park (highest peak east of the Mississippi), and many other Western North Carolina attractions and activities.

A Setting For Your Special Occasions

The 1847 Blake House Inn Bed & Breakfast is also available for weddings, receptions, parties, luncheons, meetings, reunions, and showers. As a unique Asheville wedding venue and reception site, we offer several elopement and wedding packages from small to large (up to 100 guests). Asheville is quickly becoming a destination wedding locale with many varied options for your celebration. We hope that you will consider this Asheville bed and breakfast for your special occasion. Call us to help you celebrate your event in a way that’s special to you.

"This Memorial Day weekend we made our second trip to the 1847 Blake House! We just love this B&B! We travel with our dogs and since the Blake House is "pet friendly" it works well for us. The city park just out back of the property makes it perfect for the "needed dog walks". Great creative breakfasts provide the fuel needed for all of the activities that Asheville has to offer. The 14' ceilings, well appointed comfortable rooms, friendly staff makes the stay perfect!" - TripAdvisor Review
