1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage
Ranked #22 of 39 Asheville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 October 2013

We stayed for three nights during the fall season. It was perfect. The room was great with a fireplace. The breakfasts were unique and delicious. The conversations with the other guests and with the owners were very entertaining. Great place and we will definitely return.

This B&B far surpassed all of our expectations. My boyfriend and I came here for Valentine's Day, and it was absolutely fabulous. The staff was overwhelmingly nice and greeted us with bright smiles and courtesy upon our arrival. We stayed in the Ralph Waldo Emerson suite. The bed was extremely comfortable and was nestled directly in front of a roaring fireplace that only added to the calming yet haunting relaxed atmosphere of this room. The shower was impressive--several jets wash away any tension or stress you might have carried with you. It was only minutes from downtown and some of the best restaurants you'll ever visit (Mayfel's especially). We are in the process of booking our Christmas getaway to Asheville, and we are definitely planning on staying here again. We would highly recommend 1889.

Room Tip: Ralph Waldo Emerson suite...fantastic!

My husband and I stayed here for the 1st time this past weekend for 3 days and it could not have been more perfect. We have been married 21 years and visit many B&B's and we will definitely return to this one. We stayed in the Mayo Angelou Suite and it was just like the picture only much bigger than we could ever imagine. You are given privacy and the room was very clean and the body spray shower for two was amazing. I have to also mention the amazing breakfast we had each morning and the delightful engaging owner, Frank. He was very entertaining and funny. You could sit at the big beautiful table and engage in conversation or sit at tables for two. Either way the 3 course breakfast was awesome and juice and coffee was provided abundantly. We love to hike so we very much appreciated the free water bottles in the mini fridge in the room when we returned. This place also has beautiful gardening and it was one of the best B&B's we have stayed at. I can't think of one thing lacking. We highly recommend it!

Frank and Ralph have done a wonderful job making guests feel welcomed! Their staff was professional and courteous. The Inn and our room, Dorothy Parker, was perfect. We were unsure if we wanted the formal nature of the sit down breakfast, but loved the conversation and entertainment. Very nice touch. Ralph gave us dedicated time in the garden where we shared plant stories and interests. We will come back to Whitegate.

We loved everything about our stay at the White Gate Inn. The room was gorgeous and super-comfortable. The house is beautiful, and the gardens are amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the food is delicious --they were kind enough to accomodate our special dietary requirements. The location is also great -- walking distance to downtown and restaurants. The adorable corgis are a delight (the come for brief visit after breakfast). We've stayed at a lot of B&Bs and White Gate Inn is right up at the top of the list. We'd definitely stay there again.

We were in Asheville for our 50th anniversary, and opted to stay in a B&B. We couldn't have selected a better place to stay for 3 nights. The company was congenial and the rooms were excellent, albeit on the older side. The rooms had all the amenities of home, and maybe even moreso. The three breakfasts we ate were all fixed with great care, well cooked and presented by Frank and his staff. The afternoon gatherings in the garden with wine and snacks also were excellent. The location, within walking distance of down town Asheville, also was perfect for our interests for this weekend.
We will be back.

Don't hesitate to book this lovely accommodation as your home away from home. Even if you're passing through and it's only for one night. Very clean, well priced, and the staff were very accommodating.
If we're ever back through lovely NC, we will definitely make the 1889 White Gate Inn a stop on our journey.

Room Tip: Joyce Kilmer suite - very large, beautifully decorated, two bedroom with lots of privacy.
