Engadine Inn and Cabins is conveniently located 15 minutes west of the urban center of Asheville and just one-half mile from Exit 37 (Wiggins Road) on Interstate 40 (NOT Interstate 26!).

If driving and using GPS, we suggest you to use the service until you Exit I-40 and then use these directions for the last half-mile of your journey (since many GPS services will take you past our driveway):

If traveling from the east (Asheville), take Exit 37.  At the bottom of the ramp, turn left.  Proceed to the traffic light.

If traveling from the west (Knoxville), take Exit 37.  At the bottom of the ramp, turn right. Proceed to the traffic light.

At the traffic light, turn right onto Smoky Park Highways (also known as US 19 South and US 23 South).  Proceed approximately one-half mile.  Our driveway, marked with our “Engadine” sign will be on the left (across from Buck Haven Road).  Turn in and come up the driveway to the left.  Come up to the Inn, park on either side and come to the front door to check in.


If you are not driving, several options are available for getting around Asheville and Western North Carolina

Car Service- Harry’s Car Service, 828-774-8172,

Taxi- Asheville Taxi Company, 828-333-1976 (telephone or text),

Rental Cars- All major companies are represented at theAsheville Regional Airport…see company websites for more information or to make reservations.

Uber- See the Uber app for more information.

NOTE:  If you are staying in one of our cabins and planning to use Harry’s Car Service, Asheville Taxi or Uber, we suggest meeting your driver at the front of the Inn.


Our proximity to I-40 offers us the advantage of quick proximity (15 minutes) to downtown Asheville and such amenities as the Biltmore Estate, the North Carolina Arboretum, the Blue Ridge Parkway. It also provides quick access to the nearby mountain towns of Waynesville, Brevard, Hendersonville, Weaverville and Woodfin.

But, that same proximity comes one disadvantage for guests who have a sensitivity to road noise. In situations where this is the case, we suggest that prospective guests consider booking either one of the rooms on the back side of the inn (where the views are anyway!) or one of the cabins at the rear of the property (behind and below the ridge line) where the noise is somewhat mitigated. If one of these options will not satisfy your needs, however, please allow us the privilege of referring you to one of the fellow member inns of the Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association, where we are confident you’ll find a great place to stay and a good night’s sleep!!!
