We had a wonderful time. The Inn is centrally located downtown so there was no need to drive to restaurants and bars. The garden on the property is a wonderful place to relax and have a glass on wine in the evenings or a cup of coffee in the morning.

We loved staying in walking distance of downtown Asheville at this lovely bed and breakfast. We parked the car and did not move it until three days later. The three course breakfast was a truly gourmet experience with filling and tasty specials such as Eggs Benedict with Red Pepper Hollandaise on ham and stuffed French toast with chocolate ganache. We... More

Thank you for such a lovely review. Your words make me smile. If you'd like any of our recipes they are always available by request. The Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association will be releasing a cookbook very soon. More

This was our second visit to the White Gate Inn. This time we took advantage of scheduling ahead for a combination massage package. They came to the suite and was amazing! I had the facial/reflexology and my hubby had the deep tissue massage. What a way to start the day! Can't wait for our next visit.

We had a wonderful time. The host, Frank I think was his name, was very friendly and helpful. The young lady that was working in the evening was very nice. Breakfast was tasty both mornings. The house and grounds are beautiful.

We were excited to be able (finally) to use a Gift Certificate for $200 towards a stay at WhiteGate Inn. Our sons, hard-working college students, surprised us with this gift - which was too much money for them to be spending. Unfortunate during a move, the gift certificate was "packed" and discovered well after the expiration date. The boys had... More

"Stayed July 2016, traveled as a couple", this is a false statement, as this couple did not stay with us. They did make a reservation over the phone and made no mention of the certificate. The next day we received an email where the potential customer stated this: "Gift certificate for $200 was a wonderful present to us, and we... More

We had a great stay at this B and B. The owners and their staff were very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. We stayed in the carriage house which was quiet. The room was clean, has a huge bathtub and a working fireplace. Breakfast was three courses and more than filling. We were easily able to walk to... More

This getaway was a bit...umm...unorthodox, if you will. Ample parking (when you find it). Checking in was a bit confusing because the front/main door of the house is locked, luckily a host spotted us and event us inside. The initial tour of the grounds were helpful. The room was EVERYTHING!!! My partner and I stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite.... More

Although we live in Asheville, this was a perfect little get away for us! The gardens are beautiful, the room was fantastic, and the location is perfect! We could walk downtown, but we honestly didn't want to leave the Inn. Also, the Inn Keepers were all so friendly and hospitable. We really felt at home!

While we liked our room and the physical property, we found the hospitality not as much to our liking. For some reason we could not discern, guests were prohibited from using the front door. When we had difficulty getting in the back door after dinner our first evening, no one answered our call for assistance and we were afraid we... More

Hello, It is great to hear that you enjoyed your room and the property. During our tour we instruct guests that the front door only opens from the inside and not the outside. This is for security reasons. We instruct guests on how to operate our back door lock, a simple push key code entry and a knob turn. We... More

Had a Great time! Walt Whitman room was the best. 5 minutes walking distance from downtown. Breakfast was different in a good way. Staff very nice. Not your average Bed and Breakfast! Frank was Great! Wonderful personality! Would definitely stay there again!
