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

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!

A delightful stay with the best breakfast we've had in a long time. Having Frank and Ralph present changes the whole atmosphere of the inn. They bring a warmth to its southern formality. A lovely stay, in a charming city, with gracious hosts.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage was comfortable and inviting. The cottage was clean and had lovely toiletries. It was fun visiting with the other couples who were at breakfast. The chef's presentation of breakfast was lovely and the food superb! We definitely recommend this B & B.

Just got back from a 4 day 3 night visit to Asheville staying at 1889 WhiteGate Inn. The information about the location being very close to downtown Asheville was correct. We loved that we could walk downtown and feel safe at night. Our disappointment started when we entered out cottage. The inn itself is nice and the staff was friendly.... More

Thank you for choosing the WhiteGate Inn on your last visit to Asheville. Frank, Ralph and the staff want everyone to feel comfortable and accommodated. The Oscar Wilde Suite is one of our most economical spaces. Our pictures online accurately show all areas of that suite. We do offer Luxury Suites that are more spacious, have larger tubs and offer... More

My husband and I recently visited and stayed a night at this glorious B&B. The house downstairs was very neat and there were plenty of places to sit and enjoy tea/coffee or refreshments while gazing at the beautiful floral scenery outside. The outside was beautifully arranged with plants and a little pond. Lots of outdoor shaded areas and unshaded. We... More

Rooms are very spacious, the common room are equally large and so nicely decorated.The grounds are beautiful What is also worth noting is that the B&B is a 20 minute walk to town. There is parking...

Great place to stay, well maintained for a hundred year plus house, friendly, helpful staff and Frank, the co-owner is a great source of advice and tips of where to eat, what to do, and where to go. Talking to other visitors at breakfast will also help. You get a great breakfast, cooked by a French trained staff and served... More

The 1889 WhiteGate Inn is a conveniently located B and B with a particularly excellent breakfast and charming and hilarious host, Frank. Breakfast for Inn guests is promptly at 9am and a 3 course breakfast like you have seldom had, occurs: it is an event. The rooms are tastefully furnished but the housekeeping is not in keeping with the price... More
