“The fabulous 1889 White Gate Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I chose this B&B because of the history and the names of the rooms. I was not disappointed. We stayed in the Robert Frost room( being an English teacher I was delighted). It had been the master bedroom with fireplace and I found it charming. The owners have kept the antique charm in the main house and incorporated a delightful garden and pond for guests to enjoy and view during happy hour. Breakfast was a sumptuous 3 course affair with a charming and clever host and the good conversation with other guests. The overall experience was marvelous and would certainly bring a repeat visit.

This was our 1st B&B experience....honestly we were a little nervous about the entire thing. Fortunately, we were blown away! This was a fantastic experience and we had a great time. Highly recommend for anyone that is looking for a night or two for a special occasion....we had in room massages - highly recommend Scott and Karen - and we were extrememly pleased. Warm hosts and very relaxing atmosphere.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottage - perfect

This was our first stay at a B&B. We usually seek out the nicer hotels in an area. So glad we decided on the 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage. We stayed in the Cottage. Very, Very nice. Plenty of room. Loved it. Short walk to downtown. Ralph does a wonderful job with the grounds and gardens. Frank makes each lovely 3 course breakfast an enjoyable start to the day.

Room Tip: If you like your privacy, the Joyce Kilmer Suite is excellent. Lovely front porch with rockers to h...

We loved our visit to the WhiteGate.
We felt like we were visiting old friends,as everyone was so helpful
and accommendating.
The three course gourmet breakfast was amazing and a fun way to begin our day.
One of hosts, Frank, got everyone laughing and talking.
We will certainly return for another visit.

Room Tip: The Dorothy Parker room overlooks the garden and greenhouse. Perfect for 2 people.

This inn is a gem, just a short walk out of the center of Asheville. The hosts are welcoming and fun. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is an experience of delicious food and joy.
The rooms which allow pets are apartment sized.

The 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage was amazing! The inn is gorgeous and the garden is beautiful. Located about 15 minutes walking distance from downtown, my wife and I were able to enjoy all of the local fare. I would highly recommend staying with Frank and Ralph if you are passing through Asheville.

Frank and Ralph have left no stone unturned when it comes to making guests comfortable at their lovely property. My husband and I visited The Whitegate Inn with our dog and couldn't have been happier about our choice. The amount of passion and care put into the rooms, amenities and grounds was visible everywhere we looked. The gardens and landscaping were unbelievable and the food was terrific. Our stay was exactly what we'd hoped for and more. We'll be back!
