Bed & Breakfast, Guest House
This AAA Four Diamond, award-winning Colonial Revival style Asheville bed and breakfast is also just ten minutes to Biltmore Estate and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The history of our North Carolina bed and breakfast inn begins in 1907 when David Latourette Jackson, a businessman who owned the Euneeda Bakery and Dairy restaurant, purchased "Lot #4 and a portion of Lot #3" on what had been called Iola Circle and was changed to Cumberland Circle. Those land tracts are where the house at 46 Cumberland Circle, called "Jackson-Peyton House" on the National Register of Historic Places since 1978, also known as Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn, now stands.
Architect Richard Sharp Smith was engaged to draw up plans for a substantial home for Mr. Jackson and his wife. Richard Sharp Smith had been the Supervising Architect under Richard Morris Hunt while Biltmore Estate was being constructed for George Vanderbilt from 1890-1895. We have been fortunate to be visited by one of Mr. Jackson's granddaughters who shared some photos of her father as a young boy less than 10 years old that were taken outdoors with this house in the background.
