“Christmas Reunion at the 1899 Wright Inn”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

The 1899 Wright Inn is wonderfully charming, clean, and very inviting; and the staff were wonderful. It is a beautiful place to stay. We had about 35 family members staying there over the weekend. The Inn includes a Carriage House that has rooms suitable for those with young children. The breakfasts we had there were delicious. The Inn is also nicely located in a quiet neighborhood but still close to many Asheville attractions. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone looking for a lovely, quiet place to stay in Asheville for a weekend. We will be back.

We really enjoyed our weekend at the Wright Inn. Everything was really wonderful. The house itself is beautiful, plenty of space to visit and enjoy the period furnishings and chat by the fire. Bedrooms are wonderful, breakfasts were great. We had a large group and everyone truly enjoyed themselves.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have unique features. We really enjoyed the celebration suite.

The inn is absolutely lovely and in a wonderful part of Ashville. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The breakfast in amazing. The inn keepers are pleasant and very friendly and accommodating to guests. We would definitely choose the inn again on another visit to Ashville.

Room Tip: Make sure you have enough furniture form your clothing (bureau).

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the inn. The accommodations and breakfasts exceeded our expectations but what really made our stay outstanding was the warm hospitality offered by our hosts, the Gilmores.

It's easy to recommend the 1899 Wright Inn of Asheville, NC!

This was our first experience with a Bed & Breakfast and it was just fabulous. The Wright Inn is charming, immaculate, warm and inviting. We stayed in the Wilkinson room & could not have been more pleased. We attended the Biltmore Christmas Evening of lights & it was just a short drive from the Wright Inn. A lovely hot breakfast was served as we chatted with 3 other couples staying here. It was just a fabulous experience and one we will definietly do again. If you have never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast make this your first choice and you will not be disappointed. Bob & Barbara were very friendly hosts and did everything to make our stay memorable and enjoyable.

Room Tip: Wilkinson, King bed, private bath, fireplace, second floor, window both walls, just a wonderful room...

My boyfriend and I took his parents who were visiting from NY to the Biltmore before Christmas and we stayed for 2 nights at the Wright Inn. It was the first time that they had ever stayed in a B&B and they loved it. The owners were very helpful with restaurant recommendations and local information. The breakfasts were awesome and we ended up taking a recipe book home with us. I have stayed at The Grove Park Inn and other B&B's in Asheville, but I would recommend the Wright Inn as a better value. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip.

One of the nicest and best run B and B's we've stayed in. My and wife stayed here just one night when we were visiting the Biltmore. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary.
The breakfast was wonderful and our host, Bob, could not have been more accommodating.
Overall, a very enjoyable stay.
