Helpful staff, impeccable service, exquisite home and gardens! Our 4 night stay on the third floor with friends could not have been finer. We made use of the sitting areas on the porch in the mornings and evenings, and later on made use of the private sitting area on the third floor. The 9 o'clock breakfast time wasn't always ideal,...

My husband and I could only stay one night as we were heading to Hilton Head for a long weekend. We arrived early afternoon and were greeted by a very hospitable host who immediately showed us informative maps of Asheville and vicinity and gave us excellent tips about how to make the most of our short stay. The downtown area... More

The Wright House Inn is a beautiful historic property, with architectural charm, located in arguably the most historic, and upscale, part of Asheville. It's conveniently located near downtown, the Grove Arcade, and a variety of shops and restaurants. The innkeepers are nice people and seem to care about their guests. Our only critiques are that the walls are thin, and... More

I was in town for a conference and decided to stay at the Wright house. I was not disappointed. The house was very nice, clean, quiet, and comfortable. We loved sitting on the front porch drinking wine. Bob and his family were outstanding, top notch, and high class, innkeepers. I would happy stay at the Wright house again.

Very comfortable, friendly, hospitable and gracious. Tom even taught my wife to use Uber when we were prepared to use Taxi's. Directions to places of interest were fool proof and we put that to the test ! Wonderful stay food was such a great change from plastic bacon and rubber eggs of the chain motels. Room was clean and very... More

This was the perfect romantic getaway. We stayed in the Celebration Suite which was very roomy and had an incredible jacuzzi tub. We were only about a mile from downtown and the weather was perfect, so we opted to walk to town to avoid the busy streets. This worked out to our advantage. The hospitality and food made the stay...

Wright Inn Asheville is a pleasant B&B with beautiful garden and convenient corner location. The bed was comfortable and clean but there was a lot of noise from the floor above us until midnight. Possibly because they have more rooms than some other B&B's we've stayed at, breakfast timing was fixed at 9 am. This was not convenient for us... More

Very pleasant experience at the inn. Helpful and friendly service. Wifi service was spotty at times. Tom was very friendly and warm. Nice staff. We would stay again. The inn was in walking distance of town. Each guest had his own parking spot in rear. Coffee, tea, soda and water were available 24/7

My mom and I spent a weekend in Asheville and wanted to stay somewhere quaint and charming, and we definitely achieved that with the Wright Inn. We were drawn to it's beautiful architecture, the positive reviews, and its location. After our weekend there, I would certainly stay there again. The owners were very friendly and helpful, giving us decorations to... More

We had a lovely weekend at the Wright Inn. The owners and staff were very helpful and our family had a wonderful stay. My only concern was that our room was on the third floor and we were unaware of the narrow spiral staircase that lead to the third floor until we arrived. This made things difficult for me but...

Hi Virginia, I wish to apologize for the issues the stairway to the 3rd floor might have caused. I am extremely conscious of this potential obstacle, especially if there are any mobility issues. This has not been an issue for 11+ years. I really feel bad because I am the person that took your reservation and distinctly remember talking to... More
