The breakfast was amazing every morning, nine o'clock sharp...they didn't mess around. Very nice settings on the table. The coffee was marvelous. Tom, Bob and Barbara are wonderful host. They went out of their way to make everything nice, even providing printed out directions to your destinations. We stayed in the Green room which had it's own private bathroom, always...

Melton & Arlena C My wife and I were on our 31st wedding anniversary, and stayed in the Celebration Suite. Everything was cozy and inviting. You couldn't ask for better hosts, who went out of their way to ask everyone what they were interested in seeing, and then giving ideas and sound advice in keeping with our wishes. They were...

My wife and I had a fantastic first visit to Asheville. In large part, the Wright Inn was a leading contirbutor to our overall great experience. The innkeepers (primarily our contact was with Tom) are top notch and managed to keep us on track with places to go (and not to go) and things to see. Tom went out of...

I only spent one evening, but enjoyed every minute. I had a special request when I made reservations that Tom, our host, did not hesitate in assisting with. It was my wife’s birthday and I sent various photos of her at stages of her life prior to our arrival and asked if he could spread them around the room to...

My husband and I returned from a wonderful long weekend at the Wright Inn in Asheville, NC. This was our first experience at a B&B and we were not disappointed! The Inn is beautifully decorated and the breakfast every morning was fantastic!! The owners Bob and Barbara and Tom were superb hosts. We will definitely return.

We stayed 2 nights in the Powell Suite, which was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The owners made us feel at home from the minute we arrived and helped out with restaurant reservations, driving directions and recommending places to see. We were fascinated with the architecture and gardens around the inn. Would have loved to stay longer!!

My boyfriend and I just got back from a long weekend in Asheville at the Wright Inn. We stayed three nights in the cozy and charming Hampton room on the third floor, which comes with a attached bath (all rooms have a private bath, but not all are ensuite, so if that's important to you check when booking). The house...

My wife and I had such a wonderful visit and enjoyed the home and the owners immensely.

We stayed four 4 nights in the Wright room. We had a wonderful time and felt part of the family even though the innkeepers were away at the time. Shirley was so very helpful and created wonderful breakfast meals. Our room was very clean and beautifully decorated in the Victorian style. We were so lucky to have our own breakfast...

From the moment we drove up ... a beautiful 'home' with lovely gardens. The Innkeeper, Shirley, could not have been more accommodating and gracious. Our room was ample, spotless and very comfortable. The Inn is an easy, pretty walk into Asheville and allowed us to leave the car behind. Continental breakfast is included (B&B!) but it was much more than...
