The Carriage House was a perfect place for a gal's getaway with all the comforts of home. The house is withing walking distance to downtown for a day of shopping and dining. The staff and owner are very friendly and go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant.

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 36th Anniversary. We stayed in many B&B's but found this one particularly warm and inviting. And the other guests were some of the friendliest people that we've ever met. We would return from our day trips to find our room thoughtfully tidied up, bed made and clean thick towels. We stayed in the Green Room and enjoyed our own little balcony. Great place to stay!

Room Tip: Our room was on the small side, but we managed. And as I said enjoyed our won little balcony.

Doris,
Meeting wonderful people is another of the reasons to stay in our Asheville Bed and Breakfast inn. The atmosphere is much better than going downstairs for a "Bun on the Run" before you checkout. We congratulate you on your milestone of 36 years. That is really impressive.
Hurry back to see us. We enjoyed you company and also the breakfast suggestion we received via email. We agree on the sweet issue and are already working on it.

Thanks again,
Barbara and Bob

Lovely Victorian house with characteristic rooms, extremely friendly and helpful owners, delicious breakfast and an excellent location close to all that Asheville has to offer. Could not have been more pleased. This was our second time staying there and we hope to be back again during our next visit to Asheville.

We invited out 2 daughters and a son-in-law to join us for our 41st wedding anniversary weekend. We have stayed several time at the Wright Inn and have never been disappointed. We rented the three bedrooms on the top level, which have their own private sitting area which we greatly enjoyed. Great hosptiality as always. We will be back!

We were looking for a quiet getaway for the weekend of our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The Wright Inn was warm and inviting. We were greeted with wonderful ideas for an evening out on the town and directions for how to take the most direct route. Shirley, the house manager, was very accomodating with our special needs. We especially loved the Green Room with its charming two seat balcony overlooking the front of the house. A great place to enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The Wright Inn is the right Inn for us!

We often stay at a bed and breakfast and found the Wright Inn to be one of our new favorites. The home is a beautiful restored Queen Anne--so charming and quaint. We stayed four nights in the Griffin room which had a beautiful picture window overlooking the grounds. We found the room to be very comfortable and quite. We took the trolley tour of the city and were picked up right out front of the our Inn. The residential area around the BB is peaceful and a pleasure to walk through. We found downtown to be a longer walk then we wished so we made the quick drive into town and often used the the excellent directions that were pre-printed for us. Shirley, the manager, made sure that everyone had directions and answered any questions about the area. She was wonderful asset in planning our vacation and you can tell she really enjoys her job and helping the guests. We felt quite at home. The food also was very good and we enjoyed the hot tea available all day and used the common fridge to store our snacks and drinks. When we come to Asheville again we will stay here without a doubt.
