We very much we enjoyed our visit at the inn. The inn is lovely, warm and inviting. Becky and George are most gracious and we felt our every need was attended to. Becky's culinary skills are exceptional. Not only was the food delicious, but the presentation and description of the food was superb. We look forward to our next stay at the Inn at Iris Meadows.

My husband and I loved the Inn at Iris Meadows from the moment we got there. The property and room are beautiful. Becky and George amazing hosts. We didn't have a single complaint the entire trip and started talking about plans of another trip there later this year before we'd even left.

My parents surprised my fiance and I with a Valentines Getaway to this bed and breakfast and we cannot stop talking about how fantastic EVERYTHING was! The property is absolutely peaceful, charming, clean, and most importantly comfortable! From the chairs and swings on the outdoor porches, to the restful ambiance of the library inside, the calming effect of the fire in the fireplaces, and even the soothing music being played thruout the lower level and game room; these are just a few subtle touches that encourage you to just relax. Each room is a little different; but the attention to detail, the fireplaces, and other little personal touches help make each room very unique and relaxing. The breakfasts each morning were INCREDIBLE! Not too much food and so delicious and healthy. They will customize your breakfast if you have any special dietary needs or food allergies. We were hesitant about bringing our 7mo old daughter with us; but the Fains welcomed us with smiling faces and made us feel so special and wanted. They are so friendly and personable that they make you feel like you are at home visiting with close family. They actually made us feel so welcome and at home that we stayed an additional night! We will definitely be coming back to this bed and breakfast! Highly highly highly reccomended to anyone that needs some peace, quiet, and freindly company.

Carolyn and I have stayed in B & B's in Key West, New Orleans, Savannah, Charleston, Galveston, Mount Dora, and Waynesville. Our recent visit to the Inn at Iris Meadows not only exceeded our expectations on every level, both the Inn and it's keepers, Becky and George, made us feel like we had come home for the holidays. The Christmas decorations throughout the Inn were beautiful, adding a perfect blend of traditional and comfortable country feel for the holidays. Becky and George were fabulous hostess and host and took care of any needs we could imagine, even at the last minute. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, often coaxing us to just stay in and relax. I particularyly enjoyed reading in the library and on the upstairs porch. The breakfasts were so good we ended up cancelling our dinner plans each day, looking forward to the next morning's treat. In summary, Carolyn and I give the Inn at Iris Meadows the rating of the finest and most enjoyable B & B of all at which we have stayed. We will definitely be back. And you cannot beat Waynesville, NC at Christmas or in the Spring for beauty and things to see and do.
