Rooms and Rates

All of our uniquely beautiful rooms include their own private bath, an unheard of luxury in a bed and breakfast. Our gorgeous rooms, along with our incredible personal service and outstanding dining are all designed to welcome and pamper you.

When you contact us, if you wish a specific room, please indicate which one, and the dates desired. If you have any special needs also indicate them, dietary or otherwise. Please provide a name and your phone number; we will contact you well within 24 hours about availability and booking details.

Discount room rates are available for extended stay and week-long exclusive use bookings.

Pet Policy

Dogs are welcome at the Melrose Inn! There is a small $10 fee per dog per night to accommodate your canine companion. We are across the street from one lovely city park, just down from another, and Melrose Avenue is a popular dog walking area of town so you and your dog can enjoy the natural ambiance of the local area on your walks. Simply let us know when you make your reservation how many dogs you will be bringing and their size(s)!

Please note there are two sociable resident cats at the inn, but they are not allowed in the area of the guest rooms. Their names are Mr. Misty (gray) and Angelina (orange); they are brother and sister and if you talk nicely they will let you pet them.


Online automated reservations are so impersonal. We pride ourselves on treating you like an individual and personally taking your reservation over the phone. Please call us at 828-859-0234 and reserve your room today. Note:  During quilt retreat weeks, there are always abundant rooms available; the Melrose Inn is a grand B&B. Please call for room descriptions!
