Rooms with views, hospitable hosts, delicious breakfast that was also visually appealing - what's not to like? This B&B is within walking distance of shops and restaurants, too. I'll be going back.

The innkeepers are the most charming, efficient, creative and intelligent folks you could have as host and hostess for your visit to Prospect Hill Inn. Don't miss the chance to stay there and enjoy the delicacies prepared for breakfast and ideas for your visit in Waynesville.

My wife and I stopped here nine months ago, on our honeymoon. All was delightful, so much so that we returned again six months later for two nights, and for two more nights a week later, as we passed through the area headed home. A big plus is that Waynesville's charming Main Street shops are within an easy walk, so we never used our car during any of the visits. The couple who own the place are very nice - friendly, helpful and pleasant, but in no way intrusive. They have a perfect light touch. Breakfasts are always delicious, and the cleanliness is perfect. Never a blemish, ever. We cannot think of a criticism. This place has not seen the last of us. Nothing beats two or three relaxing days strolling Waynesville, with your lovely bedroom at the top of the street.

My husband and I had a delightful stay at Prospect Hill in October of 2008. The Paris Room was clean, beautifully decorated and included a small, comfortable sitting area. We enjoyed having coffee on the front porch with the other guests before breakfast. Breakfast, served by Dennis and Judith in the dining room. was scrumptuous both mornings and lively conversation added to the enjoyment. Main Street, which was within easy walking distance from the B&B, was blocked off for the Annual Arts and Crafts Show which provided great entertainment and shopping. I'd wholeheartedly recommend Prospect Hill to my friends and family.
