“Wonderful hosts, wonderful guests, and wonderful area!”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

My wife and I were on our 31st wedding anniversary, and stayed in the Celebration Suite. Everything was cozy and inviting. You couldn't ask for better hosts, who went out of their way to ask everyone what they were interested in seeing, and then giving ideas and sound advice in keeping with our wishes. They were especially helpful in ideas for eating out! The guests really "clicked", and our hosts were amazed that everyone stayed around for so long after breakfast and continued visiting! (That's what really makes B&Bs so interesting, BTW!) The breakfasts--Oh Wow! Simply marvelous, with a recipe book available so you can whip up their meals yourselves once you get home. Can't say enough good about the Wright Inn and our hosts! Stay there and you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Just realize that the Celebration Suite is not connected internally to the rest of the house. You m...

My wife and I had a fantastic first visit to Asheville. In large part, the Wright Inn was a leading contirbutor to our overall great experience. The innkeepers (primarily our contact was with Tom) are top notch and managed to keep us on track with places to go (and not to go) and things to see. Tom went out of his way to assure that we had a great experience by suggesting dining options, making our dinner reservations and providing us with accurate directions. The Inn is roughly a mile from downtown Asheville making it very convenient to take a stroll. The room was awesome (we stayed in the Hampton Room) and they served a sumptuous breakfast. The innkeepers have kept the furnishing and decor true to the time period in which it was built. The innkeepers encouraged a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere and we often found ourselves lingering long after breakfast was cleared simply talking with Tom and his other guests. I highly recommend the Wright Inn for your next stay in Asheville. I know that our next visit will be spent with them. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality Tom.

I only spent one evening, but enjoyed every minute. I had a special request when I made reservations that Tom, our host, did not hesitate in assisting with. It was my wife’s birthday and I sent various photos of her at stages of her life prior to our arrival and asked if he could spread them around the room to surprise her when she entered. He pulled this off wonderfully and even enjoyed watch her reaction when she entered the room. The only complaint I have is that we were not able to spend more time enjoying their hospitality and another outstanding breakfast.

Room Tip: While we stayed in the Green Room and enjoyed it very much, our hosts invited us to take the opportu...

My husband and I returned from a wonderful long weekend at the Wright Inn in Asheville, NC. This was our first experience at a B&B and we were not disappointed! The Inn is beautifully decorated and the breakfast every morning was fantastic!! The owners Bob and Barbara and Tom were superb hosts. We will definitely return.

We stayed 2 nights in the Powell Suite, which was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The owners made us feel at home from the minute we arrived and helped out with restaurant reservations, driving directions and recommending places to see. We were fascinated with the architecture and gardens around the inn. Would have loved to stay longer!!

My boyfriend and I just got back from a long weekend in Asheville at the Wright Inn. We stayed three nights in the cozy and charming Hampton room on the third floor, which comes with a attached bath (all rooms have a private bath, but not all are ensuite, so if that's important to you check when booking).

The house is gorgeous, with a huge wraparound porch that is perfect for a late afternoon or evening glass of wine. Breakfasts were ample and tasty. The location on a quiet, tree-lined street is great - you probably could even walk downtown, though we drove everywhere for convenience. The family who runs the place is lovely. Everyone is very friendly and helpful, and they'll offer advice, restaurant reservations, and directions in a second. The other guests were also really lovely and helped make the stay enjoyable too.

We had a great time in Asheville, and a big part of it was our stay at the Wright Inn.

My wife and I had such a wonderful visit and enjoyed the home and the owners immensely. We expected a nice relaxing weekend where we could meet others and yet spend quality time with each other - - objective achieved. Bob, Barbara, and Tom gave excellent recommendations on other activities and took careful time to ensure we had everything we needed. Highly recommended!!
