Fabulous!

5 on June 02, 2014

We took the road to Waynesville to get gas and moved on but we were captivated by the charm of the town. We enjoy B&B's and when we saw Herren House we knew we had to stay. Michelle completed our wonderful experience.


Weekend Break in the Mountains of NC

4.2 on August 11, 2013

We enjoyed our weekend stay at Herren House, a charming B&B located only one block from Main St. and downtown Waynesville. We were within walking distance of several excellent restaurants and quaint shops. Our room was clean and cozy and the bed was very comfortable. Michelle provided excellent breakfast each morning, making accommodations for my special dietary needs. She was very knowledgeable about the area and helpful as we planned our Saturday day trip. I was a little disappointed that Michelle was unable to greet us when we arrived, but she left very good instructions with a key, calling to let us know where it would be located.

LOVIN THE HERRON HOUSE

My husband and I turned a business meeting into a romantic getaway! We already loved Waynesville. What a great town! We enjoyed the hospitality of the Herron House very much. We especially enjoyed bringing our small dog with us. The breakfast was delicious. We'll be back!
