This is a very comfortable, quiet bed and breakfast. It's in a beautiful neighborhood within walking distance of downtown. The owners are friendly and available, but don't hover. The breakfasts were tasty, but we'd have preferred a bit more protein and a few less carbs. But on balance, we were very happy with the accommodations and comfort and can recommend... More

What a fantastic place! We went on a romantic vacation and it couldn't have been better. The innkeepers are terrific! The inn is beautifully kept and each room is individually appointed. I can't say enough about the breakfast which was served in our own private dining room off our suite! What a magnificent stay!

We spent three days at the Wright Inn. The place is a gem. The innkeepers are delightful folks. They are very knowledgable of the town and local activities and offered terrific advice on experiencing the culinary scene. As others have mentioned, the breakfast at the Inn compares favorably with some of the best B & B dining we've experienced. Asheville... More

I frequently travel for business and have recently looked for non-traditional places to stay. I was more than pleased with my room (quiet, comfortable, wifi, all I needed), the period décor, the outstanding breakfast and, particularly, Mr. Bob Gilmore, my host. Bob wanted to ensure I had a pleasant stay and made me feel most welcome. This is a great... More

The home, inside and out, was restored to perfection. The staff was ever accommodating and solicitous. The food put any later in the day dining experiences to shame. The outside porch provided a quiet calming place to spend late evening hours.

Inn keepers were so warm and friendly. They anticipated needs, provided directions for getting around and gave great dining advice in a community with over 80 locally owned restaurants. We stayed in the Wilkinson room.

If you are into B&Bs, then the 1899 Wright Inn is worth a stop if visiting the Asheville, NC area. A light "country" breakfast was served each morning and the owners/manager could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Extra benefit - the Asheville Trolley stops at the front door and makes it very convenient to see the area and... More

Wow. I cannot say enough about the charm of this home, the hospitality of hosts Bob, Barbara and son Tom, or the ideal location (just a little over a mile to downtown Asheville, with many wonderful restaurants in between). Thank you for a wonderful time!

We loved our stay at this beautiful Victorian. The Gilmore's were wonderful hosts. Afternoon snacks and breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. You can't beat the location in relation to downtown Asheville. Very walkable!
