The Princess Anne Hotel maintains an enviable location in the Chestnut Hill National Historic District of Asheville, North Carolina. This bed and breakfast-style hotel is situated on a quiet, residential street within walking distance to downtown and is just minutes by car to the Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Pisgah National Forest. The hotel was once owned by the father of Johnny Mercer (writer of the classic melody "Moon River") and was built for Miss Anne O'Connell, a charismatic nurse for Dr. Van Ruck at a nearby tuberculosis sanitarium.


The three-story, shingle-style hotel was completed in January 1924. Over the years, the hotel has been utilized as a hospital, retirement home, training facility, and an apartment building. Today, the owner and innkeeper, Howard Stafford, an award-winning preservationist, has lovingly restored this building. For outstanding contribution to historic preservation, the Princess Anne Hotel was awarded the 2006 Griffin Award by the Preservation Society. The Princess Anne Hotel retains its original ambiance and charm with modern amenities available to create a memorable stay.
