“Great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

My wife and I and our friend had a wonderful three night stay at the Inn. The Innkeepers are wonderful and provide an added benefit of conversation, lightness and recommendations. Breakfasts are three-course gourmet affairs -- they start at 9 every morning and take about an hour. All day long, cookies, cake and other light refreshments are available. At 5, there's a wine spread. Our room, the Ralph Waldo Emerson suite was delightful. A jumbo king sized bed, a large flat screen TV with DVD insert, plenty of lights and a wonderful bathroom with a spa tub and a walk-in shower with multiple shower heads. The owners and staff are also wonderful sources of information on places to stay and eat. Don't miss Curate!

Room Tip: Talk to the Innkeepers when you make your reservation and tell them your preferences. They'll h...

I stayed at the White Gate for three nights last week. Frank and Ralph and the rest of the staff make you feel like you've known them forever. A different three course gourmet breakfast each day! And the beds are so wonderful. The gardens are gorgeous - especially the orchid greenhouse. They gave such perfect recommendations for dinners in Asheville it was as if they could read my mind on what would make me happy. Can't wait to return!

Thoroughly professional B&B. They welcomed us with champagne as soon as we arrived. A beautiful building, with interesting furnishings. Our room (Walt Whitman Suite) was on the ground floor. Beautifully renovated with an incredible bathroom. We were there for only one night, so we didn't really have the chance to experience much of what the Inn has to offer. The sheets were amazing, though! The staff does a nice afternoon service of wine and cheese outside in the expertly designed garden. Breakfast was over the top -- a huge helping of stuffed french toast, followed by some other pastry! They have a nice set-up where you can get sweets and water or wine pretty much all day and all night on a self-serve basis.

My wife and I recently spent four days and three nights at the Whitegate. We have been fortunate to have traveled a good part of the world and have stayed in a significant number of excellent places both large and small.....that's why we don't recommend you stay with Ralph and Frank UNLESS you want to experience great accommodations, gourmet breakfasts served with a genuine flourish , and hospitality rooted in a true desire to make you welcome.

If these things aren't high on your list, the Whitegate may not be for you!!!
