The best B&B that I ever stayed at

5 on November 18, 2014

This is the second time I stayed at Oak Hill B&B and I will stay there again and again. The property is beautiful and the owners are amazing they make you feel so spoiled.


Exceeded our expectations in every way!

5 on November 14, 2014

We are frequent travelers. We prefer to stay at a B&B rather than a chain hotel. Oak Hill on Love Lane was one of the nicest B&Bs we have ever enjoyed. The rooms and common areas were spacious, with every amenity carefully provided. The Inn was beautifully decorated but kept its sense of history. The morning sunrise over the treetops was only surpassed by the creative gourmet breakfast awaiting us. The owners provided excellent service and attention to detail. With so much to see in the world, we often don't visit the same place twice; however, we will be back to Oak Hill! There was great dining and so much to see in the area...two nights were just not enough.


Great Stay

5 on November 10, 2014

Great B&B large comfortable room and excellent friendly service. Very tasty breakfasts. Everyone eats together at breakfast on one table so you can meet the other guests which we enjoyed. Great location with good views from the veranda. Comfortable guest sitting room as well and Wi-Fi in rooms at no extra cost. Perfect place to stay.


BandB to the next levl

This Bed and Breakfast is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway It is set in a quiet residential neighbourhood. The hoos is maginificent. We had the Bobbu Breeze suite which is enormous. The big four poster bed and the excellent furniture make for a perfect setting. The breakfast in the morning is very special. A small diner in it self.. All in all a superb B and B


Outstanding service!

5 on November 01, 2014

We loved everything about our stay at Oak Hill. My husband and I are very laid back and casual so this was quite a step up from our usual. Even so, we felt as if we fit right in. Deb and Shell were both very gracious and helpful, even going so far as to give me a recipe that I really enjoyed. Be sure that you will be very well taken care of and comfortable here. These two really know the meaning of customer service, we will definitely be back!


Very Nice & Convenient Place to Stay

3.6 on October 28, 2014

We had a great first floor suite in this beautiful B&B. Everything about the place was first rate, and I would have rated the rooms outstanding but for some reason I am unable to check that box on this rating website. A couple of observations: first, the breakfasts tended to be exceedingly sweet, and we prefer a mix of savory and sweet - which is the usual makeup of breakfasts at other B&B's Second, while I hesitate to fault someone for being too service conscious, we found the innkeeper Shell to be very intense and overzealous in his desire to please. He needs to relax- people stay in B&B's partly because of the adventure, and do not need someone looking out for their happiness so assiduously.


Wonderful experience!

5 on October 27, 2014

Shell and Deb were terrific hosts, accommodating our change of plans, and assisting us with local attractions and reservations. Oak Hill was a great experience, and we can't wait to go back again!


The best ever!

5 on October 26, 2014

Our hosts could not have done more to make our stay better. The furnishings are very comfortable, the breakfasts outstanding. We would recommend this to all.


Excellent

5 on October 22, 2014

The home was tastefully decorated, our room was spacious and with all the amenities that travelers are accustom to. Will remain on our list to return.

Ella Davis Ray Room

Ella Davis-Ray, the matriarch of the Ray family, was a strong-willed and beautiful woman accustomed to all the luxuries of the time. Clyde, after much cajoling (and the advent of the railroad), convinced Ella to move to the budding town of Waynesville to raise their family. The story has it that after the birth of her 12 children, Ella, in an effort to insure her privacy, moved up to the guest room and promptly had a lock installed on the door! Needless to say, there were no more children after that. •Bedroom, En-Suite Bathroom (second floor) •Standard Tub/Shower •King Bed •Bay Windows •South & East Mountain Views •Approximately 340 Square Feet
