Listed on the National Registry of Historic Properties, Asheville's oldest wood-frame house is its newest B&B. Located in the Montford Community, the 1843 Rankin House Inn is "authentically Asheville" and is only 3 blocks from downtown. We are self-catering, eclectic & fun, and we do whole-house rentals. There is no other 1843 Rankin House Inn; its an Asheville experience that is not to be missed. And please ask about our pet-friendly rooms.
