The Wright Suite is large, with a comfortable king bed, and a private breakfast room. The grounds are beautiful. The owners and staff were friendly and attentive. The breakfasts were tasty. Downtown Asheville is only 0.5 miles away. Would definitely stay here again!

The Wright Inn is classic! We were extremely pleased with accommodations, breakfast, staff, meeting other guests at the Inn, the beautiful grounds, and the location! We highly recommend staying here, and we will definitely plan to return in the future!

We stayed in the Wright Suite for 2 nights during a weekend trip to Asheville. The Wright Suite was very nice and comfortable and even had a private breakfast nook where we were served breakfast both mornings. Owners were friendly and helpful.

This wonderful old home is a marvel of workmanship that is a treasure for the appreciative eye. It is located in the lovely historic district of Asheville, where the surroundings are so pleasant that it's a vacation to just be there. The proprietors, Bob and Barbara Gilmore, as well as their son, Tom, were terrific and did everything in their... More

The best b&b in ashville. Beautiful home and accommodation, perfect breakfast. We loved our stay here and highly recommend it. Fabulous dining within a short walk through the neighborhood of Montford. We enjoyed sitting on the rambling wrap around porch nibbling on our desserts from the Nine Mile restaurant a few blocks away which also was 5 star

An interesting stay in a beautiful period property. Nice but small rooms on third floor (up very tight stairs and even smaller fire escape window & vertical ladder exit route!), however the two rooms we booked were nicely furnished, only one was en suite and no price differential! Our room's plumbing, which we were told is under renovation currently throughout... More

I am very sorry that there were some concerns during your stay. We try our best to provide a more than satisfactory resolution to any issues that are brought to our attention during your stay. Everyone has a different food "Taste" preference so even though the Egg Souffle and the Frozen Fruit "SLUSH" have been some of our guest favorites... More

We stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage behind the Wright Inn. I cannot speak to the amenities in the main house only the Cottage. The cottage was reserved for us for a wedding. We were very disappointed and found the house old, run down and very very expensive ($350 per night). We later realized we could have stayed at the... More
