A lovely snowy weekend at a lovely historic inn! I felt welcome and right at home from the moment that owner Bob greeted me at the front door.

We had a great time staying here over New Year's. The food and hospitability couldn't be better. They gave us great directions to the Biltmore and offered us tips for dining establishments. We would stay there again if we were in Asheville.

On my return to Asheville, I was hoping for a personable lodging experience. I had previously stayed at the Aloft Hotel (in downtown Asheville) and, although I had enjoyed myself there, preferred to support a local establishment this time around.

Beautiful house in quiet, convenient location. Hosts were especially good at giving directions to restaurants and attractions. Excellent breakfast, though we like stronger coffee. Congenial hosts. Would gladly return.

The owners were very welcoming and the property was beautiful. The house was decorated so nicely for Christmas. And, it is very convenient to all of Asheville. We would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting the city.

Great bed and breakfast. Food was excellent and great hospitality. We stayed here for our one year anniversary and being our first bed and breakfast were not sure what to expect. We recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a romantic getaway.

We had the most amazing stay at the Wright Inn. Tom immediately greeted us when we arrived. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. Loved having a fireplace in our room. Each morning we woke to fresh coffee and a delicious breakfast. We look forward to staying at the Wright Inn again,

Upon arriving Tom greeted us and got us checked in then gave us a tour of the entire property. Our suite was appointed very nicely keeping with the charm of turn of the century with just the right updates. Totally enjoyed our stay and the breakfasts were delicious. Will return on our next trip.

If you like Victorian, this is the place. The atmosphere was charming. The host, Tom, was very knowledgeable and helpful. He is through and organized. You will enjoy your stay. The location is central to local points of interest.
