    The Elizabeth Leigh Inn in Hendersonvill, NC was my choice for a recent trip with my wife. This 19th century home and its grounds make for a beautiful stay. I can highly recomend the Elizabeth Leigh Inn.

    “Relaxing & Enjoyable”

    I stayed here for a business trip to Asheville, NC. What a great unique experience! Being from Colorado, I got to experience first hand what "Southern Hospitality" is all about. I have to say that - I LOVE it! The hostess was very nice and made me feel at home. It was nice hanging out in the oversized kitchen with an adult beverage (the mini-fridge was always stocked) in the evening after working all day. Nice folks to chat with, and just relax. I had breakfast each morning prepared for me and it was incredible - enough to make it to dinner with just a lite lunch. The inside is beautiful and the outside is landscaped nicely. Next time I hope to bring my wife - she would not want to ever leave. I would highly recommend this place to anyone for any reason - quite a unique and enjoyable stay!

    Staying at the Elizabeth Leigh Inn - after travelling all over this nation as both a business and personal traveller from Australia - this is by far the most amazing place I have every stayed. Completely deserves the 5 star ratings others have given it. Nothing is spared in making your stay comfortable from the appointment of the rooms to the friendly and relaxing welcome from the hosts. This place is a gem - you owe it to yourself. Enjoy - like I did.

    My husband & I were so lucky to have found this beautiful place on our first trip to North Carolina. Cindy is such a gracious hostess and has done an absolutely amazing restoration of a magnificent old home in Hendersonville. This historical gem has been impecably decorated yet offers all the comforts of home. We hope to get the opportunity to visit again very soon.
