We just returned from our midweek getaway to Asheville and can't say enough about the loveliness that is the Wright Inn and Carriage House. It is absolutely gorgeous, inside and out. From the peaceful sitting room, to the ornate settings at breakfast, from our cozy room, to the inviting claw foot tub in our bathroom, it was all just perfect.
We sat in the sitting room before breakfast reading and working a crossword, which was delightful. Breakfast was delicious, and trust me (a pregnant woman), you will have plenty to hold you till lunch. Our room, The Orr Room was cozy and had everything we needed, even a box fan in the armoire to my delight because I enjoy having a noise while I sleep. And we very much enjoyed the claw foot tub and the bubble baths that we took.
And last, but definitely not least, the staff, Bob and Barbara were terrific. We mostly dealt with Bob and he was so helpful and somehow at the same time, un-intrusive. He suggested a terrific Italian place for us to eat, drew us maps for where we needed to get to and was overall just a really great person to chat with.
This was our first trip to Asheville, definitely not our last, and also our first experience with a bed and breakfast, also not going to be our last if I have anything to say about it. I am so thankful we chose the Wright Inn and Carriage House because I can't imagine there being a more pleasant experience anywhere else.
