Stayed in the Hampton room, on the third floor. Stairs are tight, so I would warn off those less mobile for that floor. The other floors were easily accessible. Rooms were very clean, as well. My wife and I found our room to be quaint and inviting. We stayed there 3 nights and found the breakfast each morning to be... More

The ambiance, atmosphere and setting could not have been better for me to reunite with my daughter after not being together for three years. This was my first of many visits to come including my first time in Asheville. The location was perfect for being close to the shopping districts and downtown Asheville but being in the Montford area made... More

It was very nice meeting you and your lovely daughter. This Asheville bed and breakfast inn really is the right place for the type of a reunion you two experienced. Your comments about breakfast were appreciated more than you know. When a guest enjoys breakfast like you did and also takes the time to acknowledge it, we feel the work... More

It was really great meeting you folks. It is good to see families/friends having such a great time as you folks were having. Getting to know folks like you is why we are still glad we chose to get into this profession during "Part 1" of our retirement. I really appreciate the conversation relating to our Military service. It was... More

The house and grounds are lovely, and we enjoyed our quiet moments away from the downtown are, but not too far for convenience. The breakfast was fantastic, and the manager gave good advice on attractions and dining. The room was comfortable and nicely furnished. The bathroom was small, but well appointed. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return.

The Wright Inn is an ideal way to discover Asheville, or to revisit it. Situated in a lovely residential area on the edge of town, the landmark Victorian dwelling provides a charming and comfortable base for your stay in this glorious mountain town. The breakfasts were superb and the single table setting made for a delightful interchange among the various... More

The Wright Inn is a beautiful turn of the century home, gorgeous inside and out. We arrived the week before the hectic Biltmore Christmas rush. We were experiencing the fall foliage for the first time and had flown into Charlotte in the morning, too early for check in. So we stopped for barbeque at Moe's and then visited the beautiful...

We had a wonderful time while staying at the 1899 Wright Inn and Carriage House. The family that owns and manages the establishment was very, very nice, and our room was very comfortable. The B&B itself is very charming. The morning breakfasts were wonderful, and actually exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend it to others, and would love to... More
