My Husband and I spent a weekend in Asheville at the end of March. We arranged a late check-in ahead of time, and Kyle gave us great information on how to locate our room. We stayed in the Dorothy Parker room which was cozy and comfortable. I enjoyed laying in front of the fireplace and reading on a chilly, rainy... More

We are so happy you and your husband enjoyed your stay at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn. The Dorothy Parker Room is one of our favorites in the main inn. Asheville has so many wonderful restaurants that it can be hard to choose where to go. We make it a priority to experience them all in order to adequately recommend eateries... More

The 1889 inn ahs a grand old house (built 1889, and very nicely renovated) and 2 out buildings, with various types of accommodations, some with kitchens. The owners are very present and full of local information for restaurants, attractions, etc. The room we had was very large and immaculate. Frank, one of the owners, does stand up comedy and acting,... More

We appreciate your compliments, and are very glad you were able to stay with us. Sometimes it's hard for guests to go out and explore Asheville because our rooms and gardens are so relaxing. And yes, Frank is quite the comedian. He loves interacting with our guests. Additionally, we always try to accommodate dietary restrictions so that each guest can... More

We stayed in Robert Frost room which was very nice, check in was effortless and we were given a tour and briefed on happy hour and breakfast. There is always coffee, water, juice and sweets available. Would love to see the grounds in the spring. The breakfasts were delightful. A three course meal by candlelight with Frank providing the entertainment.... More

Thank you for your kind words about our inn. The Robert Frost room is the original master bedroom of the house, and really showcases the 'bed and breakfast' charm. We would love to see you again in the spring! More

We enjoyed our stay at WhiteGate Inn. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted and offered champagne - nice touch! We were shown around the property and directed to our room, the Maya Angelou room. The king size bed was very comfortable, the sheets were super soft! We also really enjoyed using the fireplace. The bathroom is huge, and we... More

Thank you for review; we are very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our staff strives very hard to make sure each and every guest has a memorable experience at our inn. Our housekeeping staff alerted us about the door after you departure, and we had our maintenance service fix it. Due to the changing of seasons, doors can... More

Our suite, Elisabeth Barrett Browning, was top notch. Loved it so much. Everything was thought of. The fire place, big jacuzzi tub, and the bed linens were the highlights! Hate that we only got to stay for 1 night. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and wanted a quick romantic getaway that was fairly close to home. Breakfast with... More

My mother, sister and I stayed here for a long weekend and loved every minute of our vacation. Frank and Ralph are excellent hosts and cooks. They try to attend to all of their guests needs, whether it be a gluten free diet or lost luggage, they will make sure you feel right at home.

Wife and I spent two days at the inn. Everything about the stay was above our expectations. First time in a B&B so we were not sure of what to expect. Great room, friendly staff and very nice breakfast. Close to downtown Asheville and owner Frank very helpful in telling us best places to visit. If we ever visit Asheville... More

This was an incredible place where my husband and I were able to reconnect. The owners were amazing and warm, the service was phenomenal, the food was out of this world. I didn't want to leave the room! But everything was walking distance to downtown and we had a blast.

Where do i start...From the first moment of walking into the house, we were hooked! Thomas invited us in and made us feel right at home. Service, food and staff exceeded our expectations for our 7-day stay. We will forever remember the warm southern comfort we received during our honeymoon stay at 1889 Whitegate Inn.

My fiance and I have been told for years that we needed to visit Asheville, so when a LivingSocial deal for the 1889 WhiteGate Inn came up, I decided that we should just go for it. We spent a cold and snowy two days in Asheville last month, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the WhiteGate Inn. The location was... More
