This is an amazing B&B !! Between the award-winning landscaping and the delicious 3-course breakfasts, the 1889 WhiteGate Inn is hands-down the best B&B we've stayed at - ever. Our room was tastefully decorated, the bed was comfortable and the fresh coffee outside the door in the morning was a nice touch. The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable and the owners, Frank and Ralph, were lots of fun to talk to.

My hubby and I stayed in the cottage with our baby and two small dogs. The staff was really willing to accommodate us and we found the place very family and dog-friendly. The location is just a quick walk to downtown, which was super convenient for us and the cottage was the perfect size for our little family. Very cozy and perfectly outfitted. Gorgeous gardens, delicious food and genuine hospitality. We would definitely recommend to others and return ourselves!

My husband and I had a most wonderful experience and honeymoon at the 1889 White Gate Inn in Asheville, NC. We had researched the local hotels and B & B 's in the Asheville area and the White Gate Inn had something very special that lured us to it. I am so happy we decided to stay there-the breakfasts are unbelievable and worth the early rising, even if you need to take a nap afterwards! The room was quaint and perfect, with so many small details that made the whole stay extra special. The gardens around the house were a surprising extra feature and a beautiful addition to the already great surroundings. Frank & Ralph, Brenda, Noland, and staff thank you for a great honeymoon!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn in Asheville, NC. The occasion was our 1st wedding anniversary, and our time at the WhiteGate Inn helped make it a special weekend getaway. My wife was greeted with a dozen roses and chocolate-covered strawberries upon our arrival (one of the extra ammenities one can add while reserving a room on The WhiteGate Inn's website). The location is simply beautiful both inside and out. Loaded with charm, this B&B is a perfect compliment to the beautiful surrounding area of Asheville, NC. Every place we wanted to go was within a couple minutes drive. We look forward to visiting again in the future. A++++

If you are planning a trip to Asheville, NC, a stay at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn will make it an especially memorable time. Every detail is just what you hope for in a B&B--the rooms and common areas are lovely, the award-winning gardens provide a beautful setting, the 3 course breakfasts offer delicious food and a chance to get to know other inn guests, and the wine & cheese events provide a relaxing respite in the garden. The inn owners are accommodating, helpful, and fun! Can't wait to return.
