I chose this inn because of some of the great reviews I read and it is close to downtown. However, I have to say I was disappointed with the cleanliness of my suite. I dropped something on the floor and it went under the bed which was so dusty and when I looked back toward the closet at the mini...

The WhiteGate Inn is lovely, a throwback to an earlier way of life. The hosts and staff are welcoming and expansive, happy to help with any plans or decision-making and full of local stories and information. The location is terrific-- very close to downtown. The house and its rooms are beautifully appointed, with superior beds and linens and refreshments available...

We had a wonderful weekend at 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage. Since we were traveling with another couple, we booked the Joyce Kilmer suite. It was lovely and was beyond our expectations. The photos on the website don't do it justice. There were two very nice sized bedrooms, a comfortable living area with TV and great windows to watch the...

We stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite....large and very comfortable....separate large bedroom, full kitchen, living area w/sofa/chair/TV. Parking right outside the door. Breakfasts were huge and unique. Be prepared to be adventurous as in bangers and mash rather than bacon and eggs....also there were 3 courses. Reception held nightly in the sun room with wine and light appetizers. Everyone was...

We stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite which is a precious bungalow off of the main house. The attention to detail was impressive. From the sheets, to the bed-side chocolates and Jacuzzi tub, all the little things added up to a huge,positive impression! The three course breakfast was divine. Frank, Ralph, and their staff make you feel right at home...

Our accommodations were spacious and comfortable, and we felt right at home. The breakfasts were more on the "gourmet" side, but very good and very filling. The location is convenient and the house has an interesting history.

The hosts are super, but the food is not. The entire house needs a good, solid cleaning, and rooms need to be serviced each day. They were never touched. The best part was the nightly conversation with fellow guests. Disappointing!

Comfortable, beautiful, sumptuous, accommodating, relaxing, carefree, and attentive are only a few of the adjectives that come to mind when attempting to describe our wonderful weekend getaway experience at 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage. Our stay in the Maya Angelou Suite was absolutely delightful, and the service at the inn exemplary throughout. Each member of the staff was most gracious,...

This b&b is stunning. The house is beautifully furnished and you feel both at home yet peeking back into another time. We stayed in the Emily Dickenson suite and I recommend it. Lovely furnishings and a comfy bed. So many little touches to make you feel welcome. My favorite was the little container of lip balm to help you out...

The evening reception was tastefully done, the breakfast was unusual and tasty. I would go back if I were in Asheville again. The location was close to town, restaurants and places to see. The hosts really made our stay special. This was an old home that has been modernized but still retains the character that it had when it was...
