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.

This was my first stay here and it was excellent. Real attention to detail. Relaxing. Helpful staff (loved Tom). A great breakfast. The room and bathroom were clean and the location is perfect and close to downtown Asheville.

Our stay was a gift and what a gift it was! This B&B meets and goes beyond all expectations. The rooms are not only beautiful but comfortable with space and privacy to spare! We stayed on the 3rd floor ( servants quarters) Hampton room and it was fabulous ! Just a word of caution, if you are elderly or have...

We spent five lovely evenings at the Inn. The Innkeepers are a family and it feels like you are being welcomed into their home. The home is decorated in period detail and very nicely maintained. Breakfast each day was a very warm and convivial affair. The entire staff is happy to assist in any way they can. Bob, the owner,...

Very pleasant B&B, Breakfast very good. I really enjoy when the host spends time chatting with guests, and Tom was most enjoyable and spent time and answered any and all questions. Nice historical restoration.

What a very disappointing stay. We were put in the basement in a room that left a lot to be desired. The television was so small we could not see it from across the room! Full size bed was so small! Worst of all, the bathroom was never touched and we came back to dirty towels on floor and garbage...

We were very surprised by the comments of the above reviewer but wish to correct a couple of inaccurate statements. 1.) You were not PUT into a basement room as you stated. You selected the Celebration room through Expedia/Hotels.com on October 14, 2016. The annual “Leaf Peepers” have made this the busiest weekend of the year so availability (City-wide) was...

My husband and I stayed here in the Wright Suite during a weekend getaway in Asheville. This place is so charming and quaint that I'll never stay anywhere else in Asheville. Breakfast was excellent, and they were able to meet our dietary requirements. We had a private breakfast room in our suite. We also loved the fireplace. The B&B is...

We booked a room here simply because it was the only one available for the weekend we planned to stay. We were very happy to find a room for the weekend in the midst of Leafer season. But, I will never even consider other B&Bs in the area simply because this was perfect for us. The bathroom was well stocked,...
