Architect Richard Sharp Smith, the Supervising Architect under Richard Morris Hunt while Biltmore Estate was being constructed for George Vanderbilt, designed the house that is now Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn and Spa. The Inn is proudly located in the Montford Historic District in Asheville, NC, named North Carolina's "Best Old-House Neighborhood"!

History. Style. Romance.

Abbington Green is a Select Registry Property built in the Colonial Revival style. We are less than a mile from downtown Asheville, and just a short 10-minute drive to the Biltmore Estate and the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The house was completed in 1908 by Biltmore Estate's on-site supervising architect, Robert Sharp Smith. Abbington Green is the winner of the Preservation Society's prestigious Griffin Award for excellence in historic preservation.

We provide a satisfying and delicious 2-course breakfast prepared primarily with organic and local ingredients served each morning at 9:00 am on crystal and china.

Every drop of water at Abbington Green is healthfully filtered via a salt filtration system installed at the inn... so your bathing is cleaner, your ice is purer, your beverages are tastier! We encourage you to bring a bottle to fill with our water for drinking rather than consuming water bottled in plastic. The water is delicious!

Our English-style gardens were named one of the "Best New Gardens in the County".
