The website photo is a good likeness, the actual room is much nicer. Excellent touches are a coffee maker, mini fridge, large screen flat TV above the fireplace and private terrce (one...

I really enjoyed staying at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn. My girlfriend and I were able able to stay there for one night, but we really enjoyed it. The staff was all very hospitable and the breakfast was delicious. The bonus of homemade cake and cookies was also appreciated. The inn itself is a short-drive from downtown Asheville. It would be...

We recently attended a small meeting at the 1889 White Gate Inn & Cottage in Asheville...what a memorable experience! We stayed in the cottage and the accommodations were delightful.

We had a wonderful time on our little get-away. The hosts were very accommodating & had great suggestions for us as where to eat, shop & hike. We met many nice people during our stay at the WhiteGate Inn while at breakfast or our "happy hour". Would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks for a great time.

The room was clean and comfortable. The shower and two person jacuzzi were personal favorites. Least favorite aspect was the temperature control in the room (which I only had a minor problem...

First, let’s start with what was great. The house is like a museum of curios, objets d'art and plenty of antiques some of which were actually quite spectacular. The house itself is enormous as well as being an antique in its own right. The grounds are spectacular especially the orchid greenhouse. If you are a fan of orchids this is...

Sometimes we recognize that there are quests who simply should not stay in B&B's but are better suited for a hotel where the environment is much more predictable. As much as we strive to provide a great experience for all our guests, that is not always possible. Luckily the WhiteGate has rooms ranging from historic to modern and guests can...
