Darlene and Tony were wonderful hosts. They helped us find great places to eat and things to see. The Inn is beautiful and the breakfast was out of this world. We plan to return very soon.

Tony and Darlene are the best hosts by far of all B&Bs we have ever visited. They anticipate and act. We felt they were a big part of our experience. They are very knowledgeable about the places to see and things to do in this part of western NC and very forthcoming with help. Most hosts are good at answering questions. These two seem to anticipate the questions and, without being intrusive, got right involved in our visit experience.

Darlene and Toni were great hosts. They made feel at home, yet also took care of our every need. The stay at Oak Hill was just what my wife and I needed. Their attention to detail and warm hospitality will draw us back again soon!

Took my wife to this charming and historic bed and breakfast this past weekend for her birthday and we could not have had a better time! Riddled with history, ambiance and a decadent breakfast, the charming innkeepers really know how to deliver! We highly recommend staying here. Often! Having stayed at many BnB's over the years, I can say without a doubt - this is tops! Quite and luxurious over sized rooms are just the beginning. The view from the front porch over looking downtown Waynesville cannot be oversold. It's as peaceful as it gets. We found the innkeepers to be very engaging and knowledgeable of all the right local spots to go. Even some hidden gems! Tremendous value. And the coffee...wow! If you are a coffee lover - this is the place for you! We can't wait to go back! Thank you Darlene and Tony!

Let me start by saying how welcoming Darlene and Tony were before we even arrived. Upon arrival, we were greeted, bags carried upstairs, and received an in depth tour. The accommodations and ambience of the house was amazing, including the lavender accessories and nightly turn down service. The weeping cherry trees were in full bloom and you could sit on the wrap around porch or gazebo and take it all in. Their concierge service was first rate and all recommeded restaurants were excellent. .Also, the breakfast throughout our stay was incredible. Waterfalls and hiking trails were within a short drive and you could even walk to downtown Waynesville. I enthusiastically recommend this B&B to everyone wanting location, top notch customer service, and wonderful hosts! We will definitely be back soon!

My Husband and I loved our stay at the Oak Hill on Love Lane Bed and Breakfast. Every detail was taken care and we felt like we were being pampered. The room was spacious and beautifully designed for comfort. The new innkeepers Darlene and Tony made us feel like we were part of their family. The breakfast was delicious and the little extras like fresh baked cookies each afternoon, as well a snacks and drinks available made for a very enjoyable stay. We have already booked our next stay!

We stayed 1 night as part of our 2nd honeymoon, but we wish we would've booked more nights here. Upon arrival the "old" and "new" owners were there to greet us, unloaded our luggage, and gave us a tour of the entire home. They made us feel so special and treated us like royalty! We stayed in the Bess Ray room that had the most adorable bathroom that was actually an enclosed portion of the wrap around porch. The light coming into the room was peaceful, and we really enjoyed the clawfoot tub. Breakfast was gourmet fruit cobbler and an egg/sausage/potato skillet. The inn keepers waited on us hand and foot. We didn't want to leave, so we promise to visit again soon and stay longer next time. We thank you for your southern hospitality!

What a wonderful, relaxing stop on our trip. We were on a mission to find our perfect retirement property when we stayed overnight in this lovely, charming B and B. The hosts were not only amazing cooks but they were so sweet! Their home was warm and inviting and so beautifully decorated. When I could not locate a local laundromat they were so kind to clean and fold a few outfits for us so we would have clean clothes for the remaining days of our trip. I cannot say enough nice words about them. We will be staying there again as our new home is under construction. Looking forward to home away from home.

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
