We had almost given up on B and B and decided to start staying in hotels after a disappointing stay at another property at the start of our trip. However, the last was the best and this place renewed our love for Bed and Breakfasts. The Winwardside room was beautiful. We loved the porch, the fireplace and the snacks in the room. Shawn the innkeeper was the best-so friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were fantastic. The inn is in a good location-away from downtown but close to drive to. It is a spectacular view setting when you drive up to it and see it. I highly recommend it. Do not miss this place if you are in the area.
If you want to stop the craziness of your everyday life, go to The Swag. Secluded on a mountaintop surrounded by the Great Smokies and gorgeous views, you will take a deep breath and feel your stress leave. It really is a special place! Incredible rooms, delicious food, outstanding service and no TVs make this place a must get away! It has become annual trip for us!
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. It was awesome! Our room was very clean, the breakfast was good, the staff was friendly and our room had a jacuzzi. If that wasn't enough there was also free snacks and drinks! We really had a good stay and would love to comeback on our 1st anniversary. I would recommend it as a great quiet getaway.
We recently stayed at the Windover Inn when we attended the apple festival in Waynesville, NC The Inn is a beautiful old home with a lot of history. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and we met a lot of nice people while having breakfast. I would definitely go back for another stay especially during the fall.
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.
Hardworking owners of this B&B who obviously enjoy spending time with their patrons. We immediately felt comfortable and welcome. The rooms were clean and quiet. The breakfast was simple, tasty, and felt like home-cooked meal. I wish we could have stayed longer.
We had a wonderful time at the Andon-Reid! We booked a two night stay, and disappointed it was the end of our trip and could stay no longer. We stayed in the Blue Ridge room, and it were delighted with the accommodations. The room was lovely, very warm and inviting. Mark went out of his way to ensure all the guests were comfortable and were enjoying themselves. He was also very helpful in places to eat in Waynesville as well as Asheville. We are looking forward to another stay at the Andon-Reid, only this time we will stay longer. Look forward to the decadent desserts Mark prepares daily!
Beautiful old home, well maintained and immaculately clean. The innkeepers made us feel right at home and provided us with a delicious breakfast. We will definitely be returning, hopefully next Spring.
Family gathered at the Herren House to celebrate birthdays and a wedding. Michele made our four days enjoyable and relaxing. She accommodated us at every turn. The rooms clean and comfortable. The food first class. Wonderful location to town, shops, restaurants and the Apple festival. We all really enjoyed our visit. Lovely!
Found the Grandview Lodge while looking for a B&B to stay for one night while in the Waynesville area. The inn keepers were very friendly and helpful. The Balsam Room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was quite good and fixed by Jeffrey. Especially liked the fresh pressed apple juice. The Grandview Lodge was definitely a value for the cost. Would stay there again.
My husband and I chose this place for a night to celebrate our anniversary at and we are so glad we did!! From the moment we walked in, we felt like we were at home. Shawn showed us all the little special touches of the place, including the candy, the coffee and tea, and wine that is out at all times for the guest. We stayed in the Winward, which is a room made from the garage, and it was wonderful! We really enjoyed the fireplace on the chilly, rainy night. Our dinner at the Sweet Onion was one of the best meals we have ever had. My only complaint is that we stayed just one night. We will definitely return!!!
We have staid in many bed and breakfast. The Yellow House was so friendly and cozy. Shawn, the innkeeper was so helpful and accommodating to our needs.The rooms are cozy and comfortable. The wine and cheese gatherings in the evening and port later made it easy to converse with the guest. The breakfasts were excellent with great flavor. By far one of the best.
Our room was excellent with its attached suite and everything you could need was provided. Our hosts Shell and Deb were fabulous and so generous in their knowledge and organisation and making sure all was well in what you doing and suggesting restaurants and destinations. Deb's breakfasts were wonderful and they made every aspect of our stay was catered for
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and plan to visit again. We plan to invite friends to go with us on our next visit. Waynesville, NC is beautiful small town tucked away in the mountains, and a great place to go enjoy the Fall colors.
From the time Mark welcomed us to his beautiful home to the last goodbye you always felt like you were a special guest. We stayed in the Library a first floor suite and it was truly AMAZING!! But then everything was from the lemon bars to the peach cobbler at breakfast (yes at breakfast) to the lemon ricotta pancakes you felt like you had won a Food Network stay. The home is beautiful, the sunporch where you can hang out or have breakfast is wonderful and in the evening weather permitting there is a firepit. All this for an unbelievable price. Thanks again Mark we hope to stay there longer next time.
This was our first trip staying in B&B's, and the Windover didn't disappoint us - a beautiful stately home. The innkeepers were very gracious and not intrusive. Breakfasts were superb. Being close to town made it easy to get to good restaurants and the historic downtown district. Easy distance to get onto the Blue Ridge Parkway too. We'd definitely stay here again if we're in the area.
This was our second visit to The Swag and was outstanding in every way. The beauty, service, meals, and genuine hospitality make this my favorite place to visit with family and friends. Our trip this time was enhanced by Donald Davis, a story teller and hiking guide. I told Deener Matthews that if they offered us a free week at the Swag if we could suggest an improvement, I couldn't think of anything!
