“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

My wife and I have a wonderful night at the WhiteGate Inn and Cottage. It’s hard to say what we liked most, the warm, modern room (Elizabeth Barrett Browning Suite), the inviting hosts and staff, the food or the beautiful grounds, but I think the combination of all made it special. I was really unsure about going to another Bed and Breakfast after my wife and I experienced one 18 years ago, but after this weekend, we are definitely doing this again and pretty certain it’s going to be at the WhiteGate.

Room Tip: The suite we stayed in was detached from the main house and was the most private and had a great vie...

The 3 course breakfast was incredible, the social hour was great, the provided snacks were delicious, and the hosts really went the extra mile to ensure our stay was enjoyable. They even made calls for us to get us a reservation at a restaurant known for booking weeks in advance! Fantastic B&B with a fantastic location, just a 12 minute or so walk to downtown Asheville. Loved it!

We've been to Asheville many times, often staying at the Grove Park Inn, but nothing tops our stay at 1889 White Gate Inn! The inn offers elegant, comfortable rooms, a lavish three course breakfast and entertaining, informative innkeepers. Frank, Ralph and their staff go out of their way to make each guest feel welcome, champagne upon arrival and wine each afternoon. We're making 1889 our "go to" home in Asheville!

We stayed here for a much needed get away after my husband got home from deployment and I cant say enough nice things about it. By far, the best b&b we have visited. Everyone is so welcoming and laid back. The food is exceptional... 3 course breakfasts!!! Our room was beautiful and we even had a couples massage IN OUR ROOM. Nice!
A picnic basket full of amazing food was packed for us when we did a day of hiking... i could go on & on!!!!!

Definitely a Must Go!

My husband and I visited the 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage this past weekend. Being greeted at the door and offered a glass of champagne was only the beginning of an amazing 60th birthday celebration for me! We enjoyed the coziness of the fireplace in the Robert Frost room every evening and were warmed by it in the mornings after our shower. Dining at the WhiteGate Inn was an experience to behold! Not only is the presentation of each plate beautiful, the flavors of each bite of the 3 course breakfasts were almost sensuous! Being within walking distance to downtown Asheville one can't ask for a better location! Innkeepers Frank & Ralph are definitely the cherry on top of a home made sundae!! They make it all happen! Thank you WhiteGate Inn for making my fear of turning 60 completely disappear! Steve & Barb

We have stayed here many times and each time we thoroughly enjoy ourselves. The hosts Frank and Ralph are gracious yet unobtrusive. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and inviting. And the three course breakfast is very delicious and served family style. We have researched many of the other B and B's in Asheville and believe they set the standard.

My fiancée and I stayed at the 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage a few weeks ago over Valentine's Day and had a wonderful time! The hosts were warm and amicable and the breakfasts they made were amazing! We loved being next to the Transcendental Meditation center (where we took an evening class) as well as within walking distance of downtown Asheville. We also really appreciated that all of the guests were so friendly and smart; the morning conversations over breakfast were rich and thought-provoking. We can't wait to come back and visit soon from Knoxville!
