We were traveling in February, so the Inn only had one or two other rooms occupied. The owner greeted us at the door and gave us a complete and accurate review of house rules. We settled in and gave ourselves a tour of the other rooms that were unoccupied -- they are all lovely. The owner and his son served... More

My husband and I stayed here on our 3rd wedding anniversary and we just had the best time. The staff was friendly... the house was gorgeous... our room was quaint and private (we stayed in the "Celebration Suite") and the food was absolutely delicious. We'd absolutely stay here again!

Beautiful architecture, terrific hospitality, entertaining owner, good food. Comfortable, gracious, cozy bathrobes, excellent coffee, free wine and cheese, wonderful company, convenient location. This place brims with character. Is old and charming but comfortable. Can walk downtown

This was a surprise for my wife, she thought we were staying in a hotel. Couldn't ask for a better b&b or hosts, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking forward to coming back on our next trip to Asheville

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend at the 1899 Wright Inn. The Powell Suite was beautiful. The Inn was spotless and the host were very helpful and nice. The food was delicious. We love the atmosphere & beauty of Ashville. It is one of our favorite places to visit

Our time at the 1899 Wright Inn was, like last year, wonderful. This is our second year having our family gathering at this Inn. Again, it was spotless, the friendly staff were wonderful, great location close to all the Asheville activities and sights, and you cannot beat the charm and atmosphere of this old Inn. We will be back!.

This visit was absolutely wonderful. Just as before, cleanliness and politeness were awesome. We had a wonderfully relaxing stay for our annual family gathering. Will I be back again?!? Of course! The food and décor alone are worth the visit, but the owners and staff are magnificent. Thank you for another relaxing visit.

We had another wonderful family gathering at The Wright Inn. Thank you to everyone that helped to make our stay so special. The food was great and you cannot beat the atmosphere. The Gilmores are truly a special family, we appreciate everything that they do.

Stayed two nights in the Powell room and absolutely loved it. Romantic and quaint. Fabulous staff and food! The inn is off the beaten path and feels very homey. Not far from all the action downtown. Easy to take a cab to and from local pubs and bars.
