Enjoyed 1889 WhiteGate Inn very much! Our room, The Walt Whitman was lovely! Three course breakfast varied each day, but always incredible. We enjoyed getting to know the other guests during breakfast and the evening wine and appetizer gathering from 5-6. Everyone on staff were so friendly and helpful!

We stayed here four nights in mid-August. The room was spacious and very comfortable with a king bed, stone fireplace and sitting area. It even had a little porch outside the front door. The room was decorated and furnished beautifully. I especially liked the very large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower with multiple heads. Breakfast was three courses... More

My husband and I stayed here several years ago in the Carl Sandberg room. The beds were comfortable and breakfast delicious. We spent our days hiking and exploring the town and trails and appreciated the complimentary water bottles and chapstick. The inn is located in a charming neighborhood in easy walking distance to restaurants and the downtown. We have been... More

This inn was nice and was a great place to stay. Breakfast was a scene with Frank fully entertaining all guest with his stories and recommendations on Asheville. Overall the only reason we did not give 5 stars is that we have stayed at several Select Registry properties and there are nicer B&B's in terms of attention to the details.

We were lucky enough to get to stay here, we drove up last minute and called on the way to see if they had a room available. Great place, can not say enough about the breakfast!!! The owners are friendly, funny and very welcoming. The manager on duty was friendly and inviting, we talked to her for a long time... More

although the floors are crooked and the air conditioners are only room ones, the place is beautiful and comfortable. The only down side is one of the two owners is a it overly impressed with himself and inserts himself in all breakfast conversations.

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
