We have been to Asheville probably around 10 times now. We have stayed at several different bed and breakfasts. Our favorite by far is Applewood Manor. With that being said, this one is our least favorite. It is clean and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast was also delicious. The location is also good although a little far to walk... More

We stayed at the inn for 6 nights and had a beautiful room in the Wright Suite. The daily food and breakfast table conversation were great and looked forward to every morning. Bob and Barbara are great inn keepers. They are very friendly and always pointed us in the right direction/gave great advise with respect to attractions in the area.... More

Thank you for your very kind review. We decided to get into the bed and breakfast business and chose Asheville because of the wonderful people that stay with us. We really enjoy the people (99%) that share this beautiful Victorian Home with us. Both of you were great guests and are welcome into our home at any time. Thank you... More

On this trip we have been booked in to some first class Inns and I have reviewed them accordingly. We were looking forward to The Wright House as all the reviews seem great. Our experience when we arrived surprised us when we were told by Tom that we could not check in until 3pm. His manner was very abrupt. As... More

Well, Margaret and Lain, as the saying goes, no good deed goes left unpunished. You are right about you being here 45+ minutes before check in time. Tom explained that housekeeping was still getting the house cleaned and ready for the day. As you were leaving the parking lot, our house-keeper informed him they had just finished. He ran out...

Lovely home converted to B&B in historic designated neighborhood in Asheville. Appropriate period decor and furnishings. Comfy porch for relaxing in the fresh air. Breakfasts were served at 9:00 am only, but were delicious and accommodated special dietary needs. Coffee, tea, sodas fruit and baked good snack items also available throughout the day. Bob, Barb and Tom were very hospitable... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights and had a terrific time. Tom was very helpful as Tina had to get up early to be at an arts conference daily so he prepared a to go breakfast bag for her to take along. He also was good at getting us dinner reservations. The B&B was tastefully decorated and comfortable... More

Called last minute passing though Asheville and Bob set me up with a beautiful bedroom. It was very cozy, quiet and relaxing. The home is gorgeous. Breakfast was fantastic. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a 5 star B&B.

My wife and I enjoyed a four-night stay at the Wright Inn, a beautifully restored Victorian mansion in Asheville. The rooms are very pleasant and carefully tended. The hosts are very friendly, attentive, and informative. The location in a quiet neighborhood of vintage homes is just a few minutes' drive from downtown. The period parlor and large front porch provide... More

We stayed one night for our three year anniversary in the Griffin Room. It was beautiful! We felt so at home that we even walked around in our socks! We loved having breakfast with the other guests and sharing our Asheville experiences! The location is perfect, for it is just one minute from downtown! Tom is wonderful! Thank you for... More

Located in cosy, historic Montford area just ca. 1 mile north of downtown Asheville. Room tip-top all acc. to the old, historic style. A/C in room very quiet. No noise from the street either. The included breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended :-)

The Wright Inn is a lovely historic home in a nice, quiet part of Asheville. Barbara and Bob Gilmore and their son Tom are excellent innkeepers who made us feel very much at home and comfortable. They were very helpful in making suggestions about the area. We stayed in the Wright Suite, which is large and wonderfully private, with its... More
