If you are looking for Victorian Elegance with modern conveniences, the 1899 Wright Inn is for you. Great innkeepers, great rooms, great atmosphere, spotlessly clean and filled with friendly memories. We will return.

Historic and comfortable

4.6 on June 16, 2013

Bob and Barbara provide a special ambiance to this historic property, by their knowledgeable and friendly manner. We only stayed one night as part of a roadtrip up the Blue Ridge Parkway, and wished we could have stayed longer. Short drive to some very good restaurants downtown. Only downside is the SLOW INTERNET, which could be a problem if you are staying on business. If this can be addressed, we will be back again on another visit

A six night stay in August 2012

Our stay at the Wrght Inn was a wonderful experience: the house and rooms are beautifully kept and decorated, the inn keeper was very helpful and pleasant, and every breakfast was different, delicious, and beautifully served. When the owners requested us to move to a different room due to a minor problem in our original room that needed fixing, they were very helpful and considerate about this request. It did not diminish our enjoynemnt of our stay. We highly recommend the inn, and hope to return at a future date. The Diamonds from Israel

Outstanding Place

5 on October 02, 2012

First time ever staying in a Bed and Breakfast and we are now hooked. The Inn made us feel very welcome and helped us with the information and the area and even made dinner reservations for us. They have great food and the house is very quiet at night. They even made breakfast earlier for us so that we could get to our attraction early and always had a special table for just our party since we wanted to be alone. GREAT PLACE will come again
