The 1899 Wright Inn Bed and Breakfast & Carriage House of Asheville, North Carolina is one of the finest examples of Queen Anne Victorian architecture found in the Historic Montford District and all of Western North Carolina, featuring Whirlpool Jacuzzi tubs, fireplaces, and comfortable accommodations. The Wright Inn's Bed and Breakfast accommodations have all the comforts of an era gone by, but all the conveniences of modern day Asheville. Each of our 10 guest rooms and suites are distinctly decorated in turn-of-the-century charm and period decor.

Greeted by the hosts with hot tea and fresh chocolate chip cookies. They offered up-to-date events in Asheville, as well as restaurant recommendations. That having been said, the included breakfast was of gourmet quality.

View into the Wright Suite with its own private bath, fireplace, and breakfast room. The bed had a two-step stool to access the bed which is higher than usual from the ground. Felt like I was in the "Princess and the Pea" bed!

The owners are accommodating for individual different dietary choices. Since I am not gluten free I can't address your concerns about portions. I suggest that you call and ask.

"quiet B&B in a quite neighborhood"
"Love the Wright Room in which we stayed which was the original homeowners room."
"Second floor is best. Third floor rooms have bathrooms across the hall. Bob's directions are better and safer than GPS."
"I would probably book the Powell Suite again for the authentic ball and claw bath and extra space and seating."
"check on bed size"
