I stayed at the Wright Inn in June. I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the Asheville area. Quiet, clean and comfortable. There is much attention to detail which is appreciated to insure an enjoyable stay.

This is a good B&B. The rooms are a great value for the price and the house is near (2-5 miles) dozens of places of interest, not the least of which is the Biltmore Estate. We found the neighborhood to be safe and very quiet the two nights we stayed there. We also got great restaurant recommendations from Tom, who... More

My daughter and I recently travelled to Asheville for a pleasure trip and could not have been happier with the accommodations at the 1899 Wright Inn and Carriage House! From the spectacular gardens to the charming home to the well-appointed and very clean rooms, our stay was top notch from beginning to end. And the breakfast....DELECTABLE! Can't wait to return...

The Wright inn is a wonderful place to stay. We were visiting Biltmore and this inn is only 3 miles from there. Bob the owner is quite welcoming and will help with anything you need. The house is just lovely and the breakfast was fantastic. You will not leave there hungry, we didn't eat a meal until dinner. Many restaurants... More

My wife and I stayed here while in Asheville for our honeymoon. The Wright Inn is a charming house with excellent rooms and some nice modern amenities (TVs, A/C). We loved the hearty breakfasts each morning, we only needed to snack in the afternoon they were so filling. Very kind owners. Wonderful location; quiet neighborhood and walking distance (for us)...

What a great place to stay. We stayed in the Wright Room which was on the 1st floor.It had a private entrance as well as a lovely area to have a private breakfast brought to us each of the mornings we were there. We felt like we were special guests with the house staff waitingfor only us. Another plus was... More

Very nice B&B. Host were very nice and hospitable. Rooms were nice and very quiet. In great quiet neighborhood. Wonderful porch. Breakfast was good, but not great for me personally, preacher pie - grits with spinach and ham. Chilled bananas and blueberry muffin was much better. Small to medium portions. Late night snacks not quite as good as some places... More

Room was very quiet and bed slept very well. Draw back is room is in the basement. One small window above bed, drop ceiling like in your parents basement, and bathroom (with exception of the tub) very small. Room has private entrance so if you like to stay out late and sleep late then this is the room, but if... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Wright Inn and Carriage House. The room was clean and cozy, and the staff was very welcoming and pleasant. We had the room with the private entrance and the private dining area, which was an added bonus! I am not typically one who enjoys going to B&Bs, as... More

The title says it all -- the room was wonderful, with its own little porch, accessed through the window of in true Victorian style; the breakfast was wonderful and the staff very accommodating to dietary issues, and the location was very close to downtown and all the places one might want to visit. Ample parking lot as well.
