Built in 1885 as the private home of Mrs. Woodbridge, a wealthy widow from Virginia, the inn is steeped in history. In her gracious home, Mrs. Woodbridge entertained the nobility of the Victorian era including her personal friend Lady Astor.
She later bequeathed the home to her only daughter, Rebecca, who married William E. Breese, famed attorney and mayor of Brevard. In 1911, Mr. Breese hosted a reunion dinner for the troops who served under Stonewall Jackson.
Around 1940, the home was sold and was operated as the Colonial Inn for many years. It was then transferred to Bertrand and Eileen Bourget who operated the Inn for many years making it home to many loyal customers.
Howard and Faye Yager, who now own the Inn, have given it their personal touch. They have added their eclectic collection of period antiques and decorative charm. The entire inn is filled with authentic antiques and paintings.
