History

Originally built as a family home for a wealthy Knoxville merchant in 1917, Maplehurst Inn holds a rich tradition of Southern hospitality and fine cuisine. In 1982, this home was updated and four bedrooms were added to the front portion of the house. It was converted into a bed and breakfast for the World’s Fair, located in Knoxville, TN., the same year. It opened under rave reviews as the Middleton House. 1998 marked another turning point for this Knoxville landmark. New life was breathed into this grand old house as well as new management and caretakers. Southern hospitality in an intimate atmosphere is what the Maplehurst Inn has to offer. A small yellow canopy, a discrete sign, and a pair of old-fashioned lanterns are the only indications of the Maplehurst Inn’s presence – designed that way to attract an elite clientele.

Located in quiet and historic Maplehurst Park in downtown Knoxville, travelers will be surrounded by the University of Tennessee, the 1982 World’s Fair Park, and the Downtown District. The Tennessee River flows within a stone’s throw from the backyard. Travelers are within a three block walk to the Convention Center, the Courthouse, City Hall, and some of the finest restaurants that Knoxville has to offer. During late Summer, Maplehurst Inn offers the best seats to watch Boom’s Day… the largest Labor Day fireworks display East of the Mississippi River.
