The Wilcox on Melrose

Tryon, NC is a wonderful little town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In addition to the natural setting, with hikes to many waterfalls and other scenic settings, the town itself has a great artsy and musical vibe. Close to Asheville, Greenville, and Charlotte, there are always places to go as well!

Very easy-going retired granddude (at least that's what my grandson calls me!) with one dog (a very chillJack Russell). I have converted my historic home in the center of town to a Bed & Breakfast. I have several projects around the house, such as gardening, painting, and light carpentry, but just as interested in my guests having a good experience here in the foothills and explore the area! It's a very social little town and you'll be able to meet many interesting people! I am also helping a neighbor perform some restoration work on his property, which includes basic archaeology and garden structure rebuilding. I have been hosting workers on and off for the last few years... everyone is treated with respect and given the utmost flexibility. Most of them have become friends with many in the town and several have made return trips. I use this site in the spirit in which I believe it is intended, for travelers to have a spot to rest while exploring. My house is one of the earliest in the town and right in the center of town, so there is lots to do! My response rate is abysmal as I don't get on and check mail enough... don't hesitate to send a follow-up note if I'm not quick to respond!

This experience was wonderful. I recommend this for anyone who wants to engage with the local culture of Tryon. It truly is a unique town. There is a lot of history and culture to be discovered. I enjoyed hearing the history from Robert and connecting with the locals. If you’re into botany, nature, and interesting conversations … this is your place <3

PS: Definitely checkout Melrose Falls!

You will not forget the time spend at the Wilcox on Melrose. I instantly felt like family when I arrived here. Robbert is the absolute best host and will do anything to accommodate. I ended up extending my stay here a bit longer than expected. The whole town is magical and everyone is very welcoming and friendly. This experience has touched my heart.
