My husband and I stayed at the 1889 Whitegate Inn for one week during a road trip through Virginia and North Caroline this summer. I discovered the Inn while doing research on lodging options in Asheville and then called to ask questions and book our room.
We stayed at the Walt Whitman Suite. It was very private and quiet and came with a sitting room, two flat screen tv's with built in dvd players, a cd player and great sound system, a steam shower and two person jacuzzi and spacious bathroom. We would return from our daily travels and relax until dinnertime.
The grounds were gorgeous and we would wander the extensive gardens and greenhouse feeling like Alice in Wonderland. The Inn was impecabbly decorated in a style consistent with the era of the building. The hosts and their staff were always accomodating and dedicated to enhancing the stay of their guests.
The three course breakfast was over the top and no detail was overlooked. In addition, there was a daily "social hour" where one could imbibe delicious wines and snacks and meet the other guests. Amaretto awaited guests nightly and there were always snacks and bottled water available.
Asheville itself is a wonderfully eclectic, artsy and liberal oasis in the southern mountains. It is a jewel worth visiting as is the 1889 Whitegate Inn. We highly recommend it.
