Staying at the whitegate inn was simply amazing. I have never in my life been in a more beautiful inn. My fiance and I stayed in the Walt Whitman suite, it is simply the most stunning room I have ever been in. The bathroom in this room is astounding. Breakfast in the morning with Frank and all of the other...

My husband and I traveled to Asheville for a fun and much needed vacation weekend. We couldn't have had a better stay and time than this trip, we have been to Asheville several times. The WhiteGate Inn has the historic charm that you expect from a historic mountain town and the gardens that surround the Inn make this like no...

What a wonderful getaway. My ever faithful furry companion, a working dog, a SD was welcomed and unlike other places we were made to feel right at home. The room, beautiful and since a snow storm had just gone through I was not given a hard time in delaying my arrival time a couple of days. The fireplace kept us...

I've stayed at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage 3 different times, and it is always very nice. The location is really the best for being within walking distance of town. Contrary to what another reviewer said, I was very grateful to Frank for being so involved with his guests each time I stayed, because I am a single person...

Fantastic. Delightful. Comfortable rooms. Nice wine hour and food pleasures. 4star breakfast. Three course meals. Exquisite. And Frank is a joy. Love it. Plan to come back next year and rent out the whole place

This Inn is convenient to town. Lovely first floor. Hospitable. Our room had a large 4 poster bed and a great fireplace. The bath was newly remodeled with a great clawed foot tub, plus a shower. They serve appetizers and wine at 5, but we were going out so I missed that. The breakfast was average. I guess I expected...

This was our first time at the Inn, and we really enjoyed being here! Our only regret was that we didn't book a second night. The inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas, with several welcoming and cozy guest areas to choose from if you wanted to sit downstairs with a cup of tea, glass of wine or amaretto, and some...

We had an excellent stay at the White Gate Inn! The room was spacious and clean. The food was amazing! Great check in welcome! We enjoyed the snacks and beverages left out for guests. All in all, we had an excellent time. Things to consider: The owner who hosted breakfast was far more interested in monologuing than letting us eat...

Very overpriced and carpets, especially the stairs really needed vacuuming. The host for breakfast was more interested in himself than the guests. His loud, overbearing attitude ruined breakfast for me. Food was very good, though. Needed a new mattress. Would not recommend. Wine and cheese in the afternoon was nice and staff very helpful. My problem was with Frank, the...

We stayed for two nights the week before Christmas, and the WhiteGate was such a welcoming and peaceful place to recuperate from the hustle/bustle up to the holiday. Our room was lovely, with a sleeping porch attached. Since my husband is an early riser, this was perfect place for him to hang out to read and watch TV without disturbing...
