Can't say enough nice things about the Wright Inn. First, the house is a spectacular renovation. Just sitting on the porch is delightful. The rooms are each beautiful in their own way. Second, the breakfast is perfect - tasty and hearty and fresh without spoiling your appetite for the lunch you *will* want to eat at one of Asheville's amazing... More

This Inn is so lovely! Shirley was amazing. We enjoyed her amazing breakfasts and such wonderful conversation with her! The room was so inviting and cozy. Stepping out the window to the deck was the highlight of the room! What a great place to spend our 37th wedding anniversary! Thank you for making us feel so welcome! Carmela & Steve... More

With a nod to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Wright Inn Carriage House is a great place to have a girls weekend. Or celebrate a significant birthday. The house is cozy and homey with everything you need to feel welcome. We thorougly enjoyed having cocktails on the patio in the early evening while admiring the beautiful landscaping. So much...

We found the Wright Inn the perfect place when staying in Asheville. It is within walking distance to the downtown area and the tour trolley stops in front of the house. The owners are absolutely wonderful and very accommodating. They are very knowledgeable and provided timely information and suggestions about where we wanted to visit or dine. We were very... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Wright Inn. The innkeepers were very helpful and the breakfast excellent. I have special dietary needs and the innkeepers were very gracious in accommodating my requests. Being a walker I loved the neighborhood and all of the streets near the Inn for morning walks. The houses in this neighborhood are beautiful and fun to... More

The Wright Inn is a lovely historic home with super clean, comfortable, quiet rooms. Any room you select would be perfect...perhaps the one on the main floor would be a bit in the center of things in the mornings for some though. All rooms that i got a peek into were perfect though. Everything you need is there along with... More

Set in a leafy neighborhood close to downtown, The Wright Inn is a beautiful historic home that is warm, comfortable and relaxing. Picture perfect wrap-around porch. Scrumptious breakfasts. Fragrant gardens. And wonderful, knowledgable hosts who know how to keep it all lovely. A truly first-rate place to stay in Asheville.
