Your Innkeepers

Driven by a shared passion for pure southern hospitality, The Charleston Inn is operated by a team of dedicated individuals. We all like to think of ourselves as the keepers of this historic landmark and we are pleased to share this lovely property with you!

Alicia Harbison

Meet the front desk manager at The Charleston Inn, Alicia Harbison.  A native of the Western North Carolina area, she grew up in a charming small town just north of Asheville, Weaverville. She’s the lovely daughter of the owners, Tommy and Kathy Crowder. She moved to Hendersonville 17 years ago and fell in love with this sweet, cozy town. She’s been married to a wonderful man for the past 16 years and has a beautiful 11-year-old daughter.  In her spare time, she’s cheering on her daughter at sporting events, crafting & refurbishing furniture, and visiting her favorite place – Charleston SC. She has been working at the Inn since 2020 and the most rewarding part of her job is meeting new people and making them feel like family.
