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!

My wife and I just returned from a five day stay at this amazing place and could not recommend it higher. From the moment we arrived to the day we left we were welcomed with warmth and treated as if we were special guests. Breakfasts were wonderful and they were very responsive to any special requests we made. They provided... More

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!

We were staying in Asheville for a couple of days with a band that was performing at one of the local breweries. The Carriage House was the perfect fit for us. It was cozy and quiet. At check in we were given a tour with history of the house. It was well appointed and clean.

My husband and I recently stayed at this beautiful Victorian house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We arrived early and parked our car before walking the short distance to downtown Asheville. We walked back to get ready for dinner and walked downtown again. We felt very safe walking back later that night after visiting several of the local breweries. Breakfast... More

The 1899 Wright Inn and Carriage House exceeded our B&B expectations. The Gilmore's were perfect hosts and made sure that our experience was the very best it could be. We stayed in the Wright Suite and it was lovely. We even experienced a private breakfast in our own breakfast area adjacent to the suite. The food was excellent as well.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Wright Inn...the owners are very friendly; food was fantastic!!! and it was quiet and romantic like we had hoped. We enjoyed visiting with the other guests, and having coffee on the front porch. Will definitely stay there on our next visits to Asheville.

Loved the Victorian house and our room (the Green Room). Great welcome over breakfast, staff were great, food delicious, and fun to talk to other guests over the morning meal. We arrived late and the key and room were easy to locate. We stayed just two nights and we loved the visit to Biltmore Manor, the walk to downtown was... More
