My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The inn is charming and our room (Emily Dickinson) was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was quite an affair...3 tasty courses served promptly at 9am while being entertained by one of the owners. The one staff person we met, Thomas, was very pleasant, informative and professional. It... More

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary, and our dog's 14th birthday! (Yes, it's a big deal he made to 14 and yes, we are those people.). The Inn proprietors did such thoughtful things to help us celebrate both, including providing a loaner toy and treats for our pup. The gardens are impressive and the wine /... More

The 1889 Whitegate Inn & Cottage is an experience from the time you arrive to the time you leave. A charming Bed & Breakfast with lots of character and the most delightful owners and staff. The Robert Frost room where we stayed was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and left you wanting for more - great for your pallet. We met... More

We stayed at this inn for a weekend getaway in the Walt Whitman suite and the room and bathroom were amazing! The bathroom features a 2 person jacuzzi, and steam shower with 2 shower heads - it was such a relaxing room. Breakfast was delicious and we met some really nice people. It was also very close to downtown. Great... More

We have stayed here twice and both times were amazing! We actually got married in the den by the fireplace in December of 2005. Frank and Ralph set up all the vendors for us...florist, photographer and officiant and they even stood up as our witnesses. It was perfect. We came back this past December to celebrate our 9th anniversary and... More

I've never been to a Bed & Breakfast. My friends and I took a road trip here for vacation...This was the best getaway ever!! I cannot say enough about this place. The hospitality was amazing, incredible views and a great location. I fell in love with Asheville! I cannot wait to stay here again!!

Admittedly, it took me a while to write this review. Don't leave now though - stay for the good stuff! Always a fan of B&Bs, we sought out a quiet and relaxing location with some pizazz. The 1889 WhiteGate Inn delivers! Not only is this amazing old house well appointed with beautiful décor and that 'creaky floor' detail that we... More

You won't be disappointed by the location of this inn, in a very safe historic area, 10 minute walking to downtown shopping and restaurants. If you are the type that enjoys a quiet breakfast to start your day, beware. You will be served a fantastic three-course gourmet breakfast at the single 9am seating with your fellow guests. Expect to be... More

We decided to get away from Atlanta for a little R & R, and to celebrate my birthday. After shopping over the internet, talking to friends, and getting some recommendations we decided on the 1889 Whitegate Inn. The pictures were magnificent, but did not do the property justice. Steeped in character the Maya Angelou suite was comfortable, and the perfect... More

My fiancé and I were given a weekend stay at the White Gate for Christmas and we booked it right away. After all the holiday madness we were ready to get away and relax. We arrived on Friday and were greeted at the door by a very chipper young man by the name Thomas. He gave us a tour of... More
