White Gate Inn is located within a short driving distance from downtown Asheville.

Wonderful breakfast and evening receptions where we got to know fellow guests and co-owners Ralph and Frank. The location is ideal for walking to downtown Ashville and an easy drive to the Biltmore Estates where we really enjoyed the tours and grounds.

The Whitegate Inn is a beautiful place. The grounds are amazing. There is a greenhouse on site that holds one of the owners' collection of orchids; over 1000 different types. Hospitable. Close to downtown. I recommend it for sure.

I love this B&B! My husband and I had the best time at this bed and breakfast. The rooms are absolutely fabulous! Every staff member is attentive and welcoming. The 3 course breakfast in the morning is amazing and definitely delicious. We arrive for our weekend a day early, we called the 800 number asked if we could arrive early....

We checked on line to find a place to stay that would allow a dog. I was impressed by their websight so we decided to give it a try, The Bed & Breakfast was clean, beautiful, friendly and even gave us a chance to ghost hunt!
