Located on 12 scenic mountainous acres at the end of a twisting,
tree-lined drive!

Owl's Nest Inn at Engadine was built in 1885 by Captain John Hoyt at the edge of the Pisgah National Forest, just 15 minutes from downtown Asheville.

The house, originally named Engadine, has been restored and decorated to maintain its Victorian character and charm.  The Owl's Nest Inn at Engadine is ideally situated for visiting the many attractions of western North Carolina

The four guest rooms and a new guest suite are spacious, comfortable and have the ambiance of a Victorian home along with modern conveniences such as central air conditioning and ceiling fans.

On September 20, 2001 Owl's Nest Inn at Engadine was added to the National Register of Historic Places!

A full breakfast for all of our guests is served at 9:00 a.m. by the fireplace in the formal, paneled dining room. Each evening guests may enjoy a reception featuring wine and light hors d'oeuvres.

Marg's love of gourmet cooking combined with Gail's famous cheese grits equates into a hearty breakfast.

The house was built incorporating the most modern technology of its time. Electricity was supplied to the house by a water powered generator built on the property. Running water was provided to marble topped sinks in water closets by a gravity supplied system. Water was pumped by servants to a storage tank in the attic. From there it was supplied to sinks contained in closets between each of the bedrooms on the second floor.

There was also central heat provided in the house. Even though electricity is now provided by the local power company, the coal furnace has been replaced with modern gas heat and an air conditioning system has been installed, the water closets are still in use in some of the bedrooms.

The living room has a fireplace and a television for your enjoyment. If you prefer a more peaceful atmosphere, a den provides a piano, games, and plenty of books and music. Outside there are wraparound porches, a patio and benches in the meadow for enjoying the breathtaking mountain views.
