“Great experience at the Wright Inn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Wright Inn in Asheville, NC. It is a beautiful historic bed and breakfast. The inn and grounds are lovely and very well-kept. Bob and Shirley were wonderful hosts - very friendly and pleasant. The breakfast was also delicious. We really enjoyed our stay there and would encourage others to visit the Wright Inn soon!

We just returned from Asheville, NC from a four day vacation. I must say that it is the most beautiful place to visit! It is the perfect combination of relaxation and fun! We stayed in the Wright Inn for 2 nights in the Wilkinson Room. It was just what we needed! Great size room, bathroom, fire place, beautiful views, great breakfast, and the friendliest staff! We also bought our Biltmore Tickets through the B&B and I would suggest doing that. It is less expensive to go that route and they are 2 day passes! And trust me, you WILL need 2 days at least to do and see all they have to offer. I cannot say enough great things about the owners and staff at the B&B! Bob and Shirley were SO helpful in giving restaurant suggestions and things to do! This was our first time in Asheville and we will definitely go back! It was an absolutely amazing trip and we can't wait to revisit the B&B soon!

I just spent a long weekend at the Wright Inn in Asheville. Was meeting my best friend for a girl's weekend. What a beautiful property. The authentic Victorian home and lovely gardens were extremely inviting. Bob and Shirley, the owners, offer a well run, clean, and and charming inn. They offer just the right amount of interaction with the guests while also allowing space to relax in the parlor or on the porch. The hosts made a delightful and tasty gourmet breakfast and never let my coffee cup run dry. Shirley made sure we had the best "in the know" directions (already printed out and ready on a moment's notice) to all the local attractions. Their advice was spot on. Even the housekeeping staff was friendly and thorough. We stayed in the less expensive twin bedroom on the 3rd floor with a hall bath, but were pleased to know that there was a designated bathroom for our room alone. It never felt like we were in the cheap seats. All aspects of the inn were cozy and clean. Bob and Shirley provide a superb B&B experience!

Room Tip: Floors can be a bit creaky. If you are light sleeper, bring ear plugs. But hey, you are in an auth...

The inn and grounds were lovely and situated in a perfect location, within minutes of downtown. Shirley, Bob and the staff were welcoming and very helpful with various tips about the area. They went out of their way to accomodate all of our needs.

We enjoyed our stay at the Wright Inn very much. The rooms were clean and the Innkeeper, Shirley, was very friendly and helpful. They had no problems with a late check in (kept the light on for us) and they remembered we had requested vegetarian breakfasts.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms are somewhat cramped, so we could hear our neighbors talking. Also, the upstairs...
