America's top college hotels: The Reynolds Mansion B&B

The Reynolds Mansion B&B, University of North Carolina, Asheville, NC

Fronted by wide porches, this 1847 Colonial Revival brick house enjoys long views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, as well as a long and honorable lineage. Innkeeper Michael Griffith, related by marriage to the original owners, first visited as a guest in 2009; in three months’ time, he and his partner had purchased the property and begun to restore its architectural glory. The B&B welcomes pets—as do its resident English bulldogs, Rhett and Scarlett—but, alas, not children under 14. (Take any of college-application age three miles over to check out UNC’s campus.) Daily breakfast and afternoon tea are served on the porch when the weather’s warm, but you can always take your coffee out to sit, rock, and watch the mountains. thereynoldsmansion.com
