About

Guests arrive as strangers and leave as friends as a result of John, Diane, Darla, and Debbie's warm and sincere hospitality. Colorful flags embellish the wide veranda where rocking chairs and casual afternoon social hours put the stress of everyday life out of your mind. Walking distance to fine restaurants, exceptional shopping, the Mast General Store, and antiquing in the historic district, this inn has something for everyone. John's scrumptious, all you can eat breakfasts are just the way to start your day off right! Located near Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock and Blue Ridge Parkway.

Love the Waverly Inn

5 on July 21, 2014

I love staying at the Waverly Inn when I pick up my daughter from camp. The happy hour on the sprawling front porch is a wonderful way to relax after a long drive. The homemade breakfast is awesome.


Friendly, Convenient and VERY comfortable!

5 on July 15, 2014

Breakfast was WONDERFUL! I love the peach preserves! Everything was very clean and very comfortable. I love the deep, tub, too. I want one for my own house. There is a spa right there in the Inn. And it is walking distance from everywhere. The Inn is part of the vacation, not just a place to stay. The staff know a lot about the area and were very helpful.


Friendly place

4.0 on June 15, 2014

Both the staff and other guests made our stay in Hendersonville a relaxing and welcome experience. It is a good base for visiting not only Hendersonville, but the surrounding area attractions like Asheville, Chimney Rock as well. Would recommend if visiting the area.


A very relaxing time in Hendersonville, NC

Accommodations, service, and food were all excellent. The innkeepers and staff were very hospitable and gracious. We will certainly return for another visit.


Totally enjoyed our time at Waverly Inn

Darla & Staff, THANK YOU for the wonderful hospitality from each of you during our recent stay at the Waverly Inn. We had a relaxing and wonderful time in your beautiful B&B. The meals you prepared were delicious, and just thinking about that triple layer chocolate cake make me want to visit again soon. Each one there, including your staff, made us feel like family. We met some new friends at social hour and loved the "chatty chair". We recommend you to all of our traveling friends and look forward to seeing you again. Butch & Janice Reddick


A Wonderful Week at the 1898 "Waverly Inn!

5 on April 08, 2014

My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay at the 1898 Waverly Inn to celebrate our anniversary and it was absolutely fabulous! John, Diane, Darla and Debbie are wonderful people who couldn't do enough for us. There were special touches that set them apart--a handwritten note waiting in our room when we arrived, Darla's famous Tollhouse cookies available whenever it struck your fancy, along with a homemade cake under glass that my husband really enjoyed along with a perfect Keurig brewed cup of coffee. John's legendary breakfasts were so ample that we didn't need lunch and they were perfectly prepared (I highly recommend his omelets). Debbie was always smiling and was always available to answer questions/give directions before you headed out for the day. Darla puts out a great spread for the social hour and we enjoyed getting to know our fellow guests. Charming downtown Hendersonville is within walking distance from the Inn. The Biltmore is a mere 30 mins away--just take a left turn out of the Inn and keep going--so easy! We will definitely be returning to 1898 Waverly Inn.

We had the most wonderful experience there last weekend! Thank you for a warm, comfy room with a great bed, delicious breakfasts, best massage ever, and that gracious, accommodating hospitality! We will be back.


Wonderful place to stay in Hendersonville

5 on March 17, 2014

We recently spent 3 lovely nights at the 1898 Waverly Inn. John, Diane and Darla are amazing hosts and treat you like you are part of the family. We were told when we checked to make ourselves at home. And, they mean every word of it! The breakfast is amazing. You can have as much as you want freshly prepared. The afternoon snacks are a great extra touch! We will stay here every time we go to Hendersonville!
