My husband and I stayed there to celebrate our 1st anniversary this past weekend, and the entire experience was wonderful. We stayed in the Walt Whitman Room and the two sided fireplace (facing the bathroom and facing the bedroom) was a nice added touch. The Innkeepers Frank and Ralph sure do know how to serve up some Southern Hospitality. Frank... More

Stayed here with our dog and its the only place we've stayed where our dog was as welcomed as we were. It was clean, and smelled nice. Responsible dog owners like to have somewhere nice to stay. And for us, we were treated like it was our home. Afternoon snacks, tea and coffee, a cocktail hour, wonderful breakfasts and all... More

We enjoyed a long weekend stay with friends at the 1889 Whitegate Inn. The 3 course breakfast, which includes dessert, was decadent and delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our host Frank's running commentary as he brought his guests together to start their day. The location is ideal - an easy walk to downtown.

We enjoyed our Asheville visit in this friendly and well equipped B&B in the downtown Asheville area. Gracious staff welcome and breakfast attention from one of the owners. Off street parking and our room (Mya Angelou suite) was fully handicapped accessible and equipped. We will definite go back again when Asheville is on our itinerary.

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

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
