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

The Wright Inn is a great place to stay. We stayed two nights, enjoyed two delicious breakfasts, and slept soundly in our gorgeous room. I would definitely recommend this place to friends. I'm planning another trip to Asheville and plan to stay at the Wright Inn again. Definitely a great place worth the price. Bob and Barbara do a great... More

We spent the past weekend at this B&B. I couldn't have been more pleased. We stayed in the Green room, the only room with a private balcony. The house is off the main street which provided a quiet environment. We watched the neighborhood walkers from our balcony. Yet it is less than a mile away (nice walk) from downtown area.... More

My stay at the Wright Inn was pleasant and relaxing. The house is gorgeous and well appointed. The attention to detail by the owners is amazing as are the wonderful breakfasts and hospitality they offer. I was not disappointed in any aspect of my stay there. I stayed in the Powell room which was large and nicely laid out. The... More

My wife found this place and fell in love with the pictures, but the pictures do not do it justice. The Wright Inn is tucked away in a very well kept neighborhood, away from the busy streets. If you want to walk the neighborhood and take in the charm of the old houses and friendly people walking their dogs, or... More

My wife and I and our teens stayed in the Carriage House at this place. It is a separate little house located behind the main property. Best thing about the 1899 Wright Inn is its location. After a long drive, it was really nice to talk a walk into the restaurant district for dinner. Neighborhood is safe and lovely. We... More

Thank you very much for your very informative review. Your information is accurate but one thing needs to be clarified. We are proud to have one of the few "Children/Family Friendly" accommodations that accept children of all ages in a complete house setting. While it might not be as elegant as a few of the B&B's in the area, as... More

We stayed at the 1899 Wright Inn back in early January, arriving on the first day of the "Polar Vortex." Our room was the Wright Suite on the first floor, and it was lovely and quite comfortable. Even though the lows hit -3 degrees, the gas fireplace put out enough heat that we actually had to turn it down in... More

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
