My husband and I spent a few days in Asheville. This was our first time to ever stay in a B&B. We found the grounds to be very pretty and our room was all that we hoped it would be, but a little over priced. We had excellent service with housekeeping staff. We never met the owners while we were there. The host that were there, we found to be very cold and unfriendly. I will defiantly try another B&B, but not this one again.

We are so happy that you decided to stay with us for your first B&B experience. Our rooms vary in price, but we feel that they are competitive with the surrounding area. We are very sorry that you felt some of our staff was cold and unfriendly. We never want guests to feel unwelcome at the WhiteGate Inn. Please consider us for your return visit in Asheville, we would love to have the opportunity to serve you again.

This is the place to stay on your next trip to Asheville, NC. Minutes from downtown, wonderful 3 course breakfast included in your stay as well as a "Social Hour" with snacks and wine complimentary for guests. Every room has its own unique design. Wonderful staff and owners. Come and see for yourself.

Room Tip: The in-house rooms are beautiful, as well as the Carriage House and Bungalow Rooms. The stand alone Cottage is pet friendly as well as the Joyce Kilmer and Oscar Wilde.

My Husband and I spent a weekend in Asheville at the end of March. We arranged a late check-in ahead of time, and Kyle gave us great information on how to locate our room. We stayed in the Dorothy Parker room which was cozy and comfortable. I enjoyed laying in front of the fireplace and reading on a chilly, rainy weekend. The built in space heater in the bathroom was also a nice touch. The linens were amazing - very plush!

I liked having coffee served outside our door on the second floor - it was a nice wake-up before breakfast. The food at breakfast was wonderful! Each course was very tasty and I liked indulging in a little dessert at breakfast! It was fun interacting with the other guests, Frank, Ralph, and their adorable dogs each morning before starting the day. Frank gave us great recommendations for where to eat in Downtown Asheville, and also offered specific plates at those restaurants which did not disappoint!

We were left with a memorable stay and we can not wait to return!

We are so happy you and your husband enjoyed your stay at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn. The Dorothy Parker Room is one of our favorites in the main inn. Asheville has so many wonderful restaurants that it can be hard to choose where to go. We make it a priority to experience them all in order to adequately recommend eateries to our guests. It's a tough job, but we're willing to go the extra mile! Thank you for your wonderful review, and we look forward to serving you again!

The 1889 inn ahs a grand old house (built 1889, and very nicely renovated) and 2 out buildings, with various types of accommodations, some with kitchens. The owners are very present and full of local information for restaurants, attractions, etc. The room we had was very large and immaculate. Frank, one of the owners, does stand up comedy and acting, and you will be thoroughly entertained at the breakfast table, as he introduces all of the guests to each other. Breakfasts are very good...3 course meal with great coffee...sometimes more than you will want for breakfast. Very attentive to food allergies, including vegan, lactose and gluten free. Located in a quite residential neighborhood, convenient to downtown...about a 15 minute walk to most of central Asheville.

Room Tip: Everyone seemed to like their rooms. Maya Angelou was very large, handicap accessible, with a whirlpool tub, large shower, large flat screen television/DVD player, refrigerator, and fireplace. Some have kitchens, so definitely check the website and/or call and ask.

We appreciate your compliments, and are very glad you were able to stay with us. Sometimes it's hard for guests to go out and explore Asheville because our rooms and gardens are so relaxing. And yes, Frank is quite the comedian. He loves interacting with our guests. Additionally, we always try to accommodate dietary restrictions so that each guest can enjoy our gourmet three course breakfast.Thank you again, and we hope to see you soon!

We stayed in Robert Frost room which was very nice, check in was effortless and we were given a tour and briefed on happy hour and breakfast. There is always coffee, water, juice and sweets available. Would love to see the grounds in the spring. The breakfasts were delightful. A three course meal by candlelight with Frank providing the entertainment. Great location for walking to town, also a trader joes on the corner, would stay here again with no qualms.

Thank you for your kind words about our inn. The Robert Frost room is the original master bedroom of the house, and really showcases the 'bed and breakfast' charm. We would love to see you again in the spring!
