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.
3.2 on October 19, 2014
Shawn runs a good show. Always a great breakfast, full of information about the area, and has a good clean B&B. Stayed there 3 times, and we enjoy the location.
4.8 on October 18, 2014
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.
5 on October 13, 2014
Our third stay and we found the Yellow House just as welcoming and accommodating as could be for our autumn drive in the Smokies. Excellent breakfast and amenities.
5 on October 09, 2014
From the moment we arrived to the Yellow House to the moment we had to leave, our stay exceeded all expectations. We loved the cozy atmospher, as well as the cleanliness of our room (and the entire house). This place had a perfect balance of up to date technology while preserving the originality of the house. The food was delicious, and the relaxing outdoors provided some nice opportunities for morning and evening strolls. I only wish we lived closer to NC so we could visit more often. I would highly recommend friends and family to stay here.
5 on September 18, 2014
We loved our stay. The inn is beautiful shaun was so attentive & personable. cheese plate on arrival & each evening as well as port in the evening. My only suggestion would be to possibly extend breakfast a little later as when vacationing I like to sleep in a little so serving breakfast until 9:30 or 10 would be my only suggestion. I would definately return to the yellow house. My husband and I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts and the yellow house is one of the highest quality we have stayed at!
5 on September 14, 2014
My daughter-in-law had stayed in the Yellow House and had loved it. We decided to go there for our 43rd anniversary. It was just wonderful. The town of Waynesville even adds more appeal with its quaint shops, good food, and beautiful surroundings. We will definitely so back!
4.8 on September 10, 2014
Our stay in the "carriage house" suite in early September was amazing. The room with its four-poster bed, fireplace, high ceilings, brick wall, private balcony and multi-person jacuzzi (looking out over the pond) is spectacular. The service, provided by Shawn and his very friendly staff, is truly top notch and the breakfast meal is unbelievable. I intend to return when the leaves begin to change!!!
5 on September 04, 2014
We had a wonderful stay at the Yellow House. Everything was perfect & Shawn was a wonderful host! Will definitely stay here again.
5 on August 25, 2014
This was our 29th anniversary weekend. The Yellow House on Plott Creek was the perfect place to spend this time. The rooms are beautiful, extremely clean, with no detail left out. We were graciously welcomed and treated like family. All the food was excellent - breakfast and afternoon hors d'oeuvres. Frig filled with drinks, coffee available all the time as well as other snacks and cookies. Beautiful porches and grounds to walk around or just to gaze upon. We will return and highly recommend this beautiful place.
5 on August 23, 2014
Wow...where do I begin? My wife and myself just spent two days at the Yellow House the 19th and 20th of Aug. and it was the best experience I have ever had at a B+B! Wonderful setting and wonderful staff. Shaun and the staff were polite, and professional . The room we stayed in was the Pond House and it was fantastic. The grounds are fascinating to explore and the main house is a treasure. The grounds and buildings are excellently maintained with beautiful gardens. We were please to find high speed wi-fi in the room and a plate of fruit and cheese. The complementary port wine is delicious also! Waynesville where the inn is located is an interesting and quaint bit of Americana with shops and restaurants to the liking of every taste. All in all we plan to return to Waynesville and the first order of business for us will be reservations at the Yellow House!
5 on August 20, 2014
My wife and I just spent four days at this marvelous Bed and breakfast Inn and our only complaint is that we couldn't stay for four more days.. IT started with a friendly hello and welcome from Shawn the innkeeper and a quick but very informative tour of the house and our room. After getting settled in, we met other guests in the living room for the cheese and wine hour which included fruits, vegetables, dips, cheeses, sausages, and two different wines. After that we went to dinner, Shawn recommended the Chef's Table and it was GREAT!. Breakfast the next morning was Peach baked french toast, bacon and a fruit compote along with piping hot coffee and fresh juice. There are so many things to do in the Waynesville area, from shopping to hiking, to sightseeing and some plain old relaxing, that even with four days we didn't get to do everything we wanted. Shawn's staff of ladies kept our room clean and well stocked throughout our stay and were always available to get us 'extra" drinks for our refrigerator. Our room did not have a T.V., which was so nice considering the lack of good things on T.V., but the piped in music filled our need for "noise" while it lulled us into a more relaxed state of mind. We spent one full (and rainy) day sitting on the front porch reading books and relaxing while nibbling on the fresh cookies that Shawn makes everyday and sipping on the port wine that is placed in strategic areas in the house. Our only regret is that we won't be able to come back for a year, but I guarantee we will be back and hopefully for a longer stay.
5 on August 18, 2014
My husband and I really needed a vacation where we could have peace and quiet and a little luxury. We found it at Yellow House. The Innkeeper,Shawn, made us feel so comfortable for the 3 nights and 4 days we were there, that we did feel as if this was our home. The grounds are beautiful and there were several different places where we could sit,read,enjoy the beverage of our choice as well as any snacks or more complete meals. There were always cookies,coffee, and tea available and a 5pm wine and cheese get together. If we were not going to be available, the tray would be waiting for us in our room. The service and staff were lovely and helpful. The rooms were all lovely and the bed was very comfortable. My husband and I wanted for nothing.
3.0 on August 15, 2014
Our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The Inn needs quite a bit of TLC. dead flowers at the entry. the porch ceiling was falling, outdoor furniture was rotten, shrubs needed trimming, in general it all needs some major TLC. The lack of TV's in the room made for some boring evenings since there was not really anything to do in the area at night. It is not worth full price, was a pretty good deal with a Groupon. The cheese plate in the room was a nice touch as well as the cookies and snacks around the inn..
Normally, I allow people to "vent" and be critical as that is their right without responding directly to their review, but I searched for "dead flowers" at the entrance and couldn't find any, I also couldn't find the porch ceiling falling, except for a small piece of paint that had peeled off. The bushes which are over 7 ft tall are allowed to grow in the summer without too much trimming, as we try to attract as many butterflies and hummingbirds as possible in our "natural" setting, but the bushes are not unkempt in the least bit. Since the guest couldn't live/be entertained without a t.v (one, however, is available to watch in the common area) I am assuming that a Bed and Breakfast in a rural setting is not what they should be going to, nor would one be able to satisfy their needs. I am sorry the guest was not happy with their stay, as we try to insure all guests are happy and content, and we bend over backwards for any and all requests.

Wonderful get away. Anxious to come back.Excellent accommodations, food and service.
4.4 on August 03, 2014
We were married at the Yellow House and decided to return for our 5 year anniversary. The accommodations were cozy, the breakfast delicious and service exemplary. I would highly recommend this quaint B&B. And you'll love some of the fantastic restaurants Waynesville has to offer for dinner!
4.6 on July 31, 2014
A very relaxed atmosphere where we are greeted with "make yourself at home!" With many videos, books, and snacks available to take back to your room or enjoy in the public areas at anytime! Sean was always available in person or by phone at all times with help or suggestions. He was very knowledgable about the area and attentive to what we liked to recommend the perfect spots to visit!
5 on July 29, 2014
We were able to share our 30th wedding anniversary with the great folks at The Yellow House on Plott Creek Road. The food was incredible - we usually only needed a snack to tide us over until dinner. Shawn was a gracious host and really cared about his guests enjoying their visit. We would definitely go back. Ben & Melinda
4.4 on July 28, 2014
I'm no B&B expert, but I found our experience at The Yellow House to be perfect. We stayed as a stopover on our way into Asheville, and found the accommodations more than adequate. We stayed in the Savannah Suite away from the main house, and especially enjoyed the large whirlpool tub after a day of driving. The breakfast the following morning was also excellent. While our stay was brief, I would have no hesitations recommending the Yellow House for those who enjoy the B&B type of experience.
4.2 on July 27, 2014
Super clean comfortable room. Great breakfasts. Very relaxing. Would visit again!!
5 on July 27, 2014
My friend and I went to relax and take in Waynesville. Our stay was very nice, the food was made from love, and the service was exceptional. Only complaint is we couldn't stay longer.
4.0 on July 23, 2014
This B & B is located in a beautiful setting and the rooms are wonderful. Everything was great except the breakfast which included biscuits and tater tots from the frozen food section of the grocery store. Not what you would expect for paying a premium price. Other than the breakfast, I would recommend this B & B.
4.2 on July 22, 2014
Different season, different room. The Kinsale suite with its cute little balcony overlooking a pond was absolutely charming. Bring a favorite beverage and enjoy it with the provided fruit, cheese and crackers while watching for bullfrogs on the edge of the pond.
5 on July 20, 2014
My husband and I have celebrated our last 3 anniversaries at The Yellow House, and this year we are making 2 additional visits just because! From the sincere care of Shawn and the staff to make your stay all that it can be, to the beautiful grounds, and amazing rooms (Carriage House!) we can't seem to get enough. And a MUST for the area is to make sure you go to Cataloochee to see the Elk! This B&B should be rated #1 in Waynesville. We've been to others in the are and we keep coming back. Can't wait for our next visit in August.
5 on July 17, 2014
We had such an enjoyable stay at The Yellow House! Everything was so beautiful and relaxing,and all of the special little touches made it just right. We would definitely make a return visit!
5 on July 16, 2014
We had a great time and enjoyed our time at The Yellow House!
5 on July 14, 2014
The Yellow House lived up to previous outstanding reviews. It is in the most beautiful setting surrounded by the mountains, two ponds and beautiful landscaping on the grounds. Shawn is an amazing host. From the moment you arrive until the time you leave you are not left wanting for anything. Shawn's breakfasts are a culinary delight. Cannot wait to return.
4.4 on July 12, 2014
Yellow house inn is a diamond among inns.
5 on July 08, 2014
This I the second time I have stayed at The Yellow House. I promise you won't be disappointed. From the moment you arrive. You will feel like a part of the family. The atmosphere of The Yellow House is very relaxing. The rooms are beautiful, and each have their own theme. I would highly recommend you giving them a try. Only 35 minutes from Asheville. So glad we stayed again.
5 on July 08, 2014
Amazing location, service, views, accommodations - Every detail was perfect for a memorable get-away.
5 on June 30, 2014
If you are planning a trip to this area, or even if you're not, you owe it to yourself to stay at this wonderful place. From the moment you drive in you are treated like the most special guest that has ever visited. The rooms are beautifully appointed. We stayed in the St. Paul de Vence. You had to keep telling yourself that you were not in a little private villa on the French Riviera. Shawn, our host was charming. He was extremely helpful. When he asked where we were off to one morning and we told him we were seeking a waterfall he turned around and almost magically produced a map of waterfalls in the area! The food was amazing! From the fresh baked cookies every day to the delicious breakfasts and the delightful wine, sangria and hors d'oeuvres each evening, Shawn kept us well fed and cared for. Our time at The Yellow House was the highlight of our two week "Southern tour".
5 on June 27, 2014
Our visit to the Yellow House Inn was our first. We were welcomed with open arms and immediately relaxed after our 3 hour drive. The next few days we spent there were lovely. The staff is wonderful, pleasant, kind and offered so much information about the area, sights to visit and even recipes of their delicious breakfasts!. The Yellow House is extremely well kept, comfortable, quiet and situated in a beautiful area that is so peaceful. We are looking forward to our return.
4.6 on June 27, 2014
My husband and I just completed a wonderful getaway at the Yellow House. The suite was so spacious, with two separated rooms and the gift of a private porch. It was like stepping back in time to a gracious and relaxed atmosphere, full of lots of antiques and surrounded by beautiful grounds. The host was very helpful and we enjoyed our conversations with him. The weather was so nice we were able to enjoy the amazing breakfasts on the front porch. We came home with some awesome recipes. We love to hike and of course this area has lots of great outdoor options. Thank you, Shawn, for a great visit!
5 on June 25, 2014
This was our first B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The rooms are just beautiful and truly exceeded any of my expectations. Shawn is so helpful and provides information in any way he can. He and his helpers made us the most wonderful breakfast. We were so full that we really didn't want lunch! The grounds are beautiful, with benches and waterfalls to enjoy. The house itself is amazing. You can feel the history of the house, but the amenities are modern. Best of both worlds, which is a plus for me!! Music is piped through the main house from 8am until 11pm at night. I love all types of music and really enjoyed that feature. I would, without hesitation, go back to the Yellow House.
5 on June 21, 2014
What an amazing place in the middle of the mountains. Beautiful old house. Breakfast was awesome. Shawn is a great guy and will do anything to make your stay better. I took my wife for our 5 year anniversary and we will be back again someday.
5 on June 18, 2014
What a relaxing and delightful place to which to return after touring the nearby Blue Ridge and Smoky mountains!
5 on June 15, 2014
The Yellow House B&B was beautiful. The grounds were lovely and our stay was very relaxing. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. We had a wonderful stay.
5 on June 15, 2014
I was pleasantly surprised by the hospitality that the staff provided during my stay. They were happy to oblige me when I needed help or had any questions. They also kept us well taken care of with all the yummy snacks and hors d'oeuvres hour. The grounds are beautiful and the house is cozy. Can't wait to go back!!!
5 on June 11, 2014
The Yellow House was everything we hoped and more! Relaxing, welcoming, and serene! All the rooms are beautiful and extremely well kept, the food was delicious, and the grounds of the Yellow House are so relaxing. The National Parks so close by are an added benefit, with many waterfalls and breathtaking views! We can't wait for our return visit.

Beautiful grounds on large property, 19th century house. Lots to do in the area, we had a great, relaxing stay!

A little piece of heaven in the middle of "God's Country". Perfect in every way!

We repeatedly return to the Yellow House and are never disappointed. I think we are spoiled now as we use the Yellow House as a comparison to the Yellow House. Breakfast is always wonderful and sooooo much food!
5 on June 05, 2014
This B & B is tucked away in a quiet, cozy little town that has interesting shops and great dining in the downtown area. We could not have asked for a more hospitable staff. The room was beautiful and the atmosphere very relaxing. We usually rent cabins, but we will be back to The Yellow House!

First time to NC. Had a fantastic visit to this beautiful state and wonderful accommodation which was made even more enjoyable by Shawn who was the most the affable of hosts.

We found this wonderful B&B by winning a silent auction. What a find! Our room was large, comfortable and homey. The innkeeper was informative, a great conversationalist and cook. The staff was friendly and helpful. We look forward to a return trip!
5 on April 01, 2014
The Yellow House on Plott Creek was such a treat! It was the first time for my husband and I to stay at a B&B and it was amazing! We were greatly pampered and enjoyed meeting the other couples that stayed there as well. Such a pretty place to stay!!
5 on March 16, 2014
We stayed at the beautiful "Yellow House" 15 years ago for our 25th anniversary!!! I was such a wonderful place!!! We stayed there just two weeks ago and even though the owners and staff have changed, it is still a wonderful place!!! We have stayed at many, many bed and breakfasts-this is the only one we have ever stayed twice. The house is very pretty, suites and rooms are so clean and comfortable-also lovely! The amenties are great-a delicious breakfast each morning, snacks, drinks, happy hour before dinner with appetizers and drinks, and relaxing music piped into your room. Who could ask for more???? We loved staying there 15 years ago and we loved staying there two weeks ago. You will be glad you stayed at the "Yellow House" if you go too!
5 on March 07, 2014
This was our 5th visit to The Yellow House and we are never disappointed! The staff and breakfasts are wonderful, as are the accommodations. We look forward to our next visit.

This was our 4th visit to the Yellow House and we look forward to many, many more!!

My husband and I are expecting our first child in two months and we wanted a quick getaway before the baby comes. The Yellow House far exceeeded our expectation on every level. The Inn keeper Shawn, accommodated our unique needs at every turn and made us feel like we were the featured guests for the week. The room was so cozy and comfortable with a romantic fireplace. The food was to be remembered and very delicious. We can't say enough good things about this place and we will bring our 10 month old back here next year. One other thing that stood out for me was the wonderful reception when we arrived. We had a cheese and fruit plate waiting for us with drinks for refreshments after a long drive. I will recommend The Yellow House to family and friends. One of the best places we've ever stayed!
5 on November 18, 2013
The room was perfect! The manager was very accomodating. They went out of their way to accomodate my wife's gluten free diet.

Excellent in EVERY way.
4.8 on October 28, 2013
Shawn the innkeeper welcomed us to this wonderful home and made us feel like old friends. Our room was clean,comfortable and well-stocked with complimentary beverages. The piped in music in each room was very relaxing and helped lull me to sleep. The breakfast which consisted of stuffed french toast topped with strawberries was incredible! The house and grounds are simply beautiful and Shawn is a very personable and gracious host. I would highly recommend staying here even if you're planning on visiting the Biltmore or taking a train ride on the GSMR. It is worth the drive!
5 on October 28, 2013
We were looking online for a B&B in the Waynesville area. Saw Yellow House listed and thought it sounded good and looked enticing. Can not say enough good things about our stay in the Savannah Suite. Southern hospitality at its finest!

5 on August 07, 2013
We visited The Yellow House for my daughter private, intimate wedding. The setting was romantic and serene. This was my husbands and my first visit, but the second for our daughter and son-in-law. Everything about The Yellow House exceeded my expectations. Shawn, runs a smooth and professional B&B and cooks up spectacular breakfasts! We will definitely be back!
5 on August 03, 2013
After experiencing our first stay at the Yellow House, we have returned several times over the past few years and have brought our friends with us to enjoy the warm, cozy and peacefulness of the B&B. Shawn and his wonderful staff spoil us with their delicious breakfast, afternoon port and cheese and very yummy cookies we come back to after our evening out. The house is charming and is situated off a beautiful country road which adds to the ambiance. We always look forward to going back...our home away from home :)
4.0 on August 02, 2013
If you would like to get away from it all in the cool, refreshing North Carolina mountains near Waynesville, I would highly recommend the Yellow House. Even before we arrived, Shawn was attentive to our questions and was happy to give advise about dining, fly fishing and golf. The Inn itself is beautiful and grounds are well maintained. Our room was spacious and well appointed. Shawn and his staff were there to make sure that all our requests were met. There was no "nickel and diming". Everything you requested was included and more. Since the Inn was vacant for part of our visit, the normal wine and cheese happy hour was replaced by wine and cheese in our room. When Shawn noticed that I enjoyed Perrier, bottles appeared in the room refrigerator. The breakfasts were wonderful and the afternoon cookies were yummy. Take advantage of this wonderful venue. Steve and Elissa from Florida

We enjoyed our stay at this Bed and Breakfast Inn! The grounds were very beautiful, our room was very comfortable (including a very comfy king size bed), and the meals were delicious. Nice touch to offer Port Wine, cheese, crackers and celery when you first arrive. The innkeeper was very helpful. Thanks for a lovely experience!!
5 on July 26, 2013
We needed a weekend away to recharge. This is the place to do it! Waynesville a fun town with los of shops and restaurants. Highly recommend this B&B.
2.4 on July 15, 2013
While the owners and service was friendly, the property needs some TLC. There were old doormats, window boxes with dead flowers, and lights hanging from the outside siding. The home is a beautiful old home but needs a lift including removing the musty odor. Wish I could have written a better review:( Property has great potential.
5 on July 11, 2013
it just was all good.
4.6 on July 08, 2013
We had a wonderful stay in spite of a rainy week in the south. Shawn could not have been more helpful. The setting was restful, and the accommodations were very nice. We llok forward to our next stay at The Yellow House.
4.6 on June 26, 2013
We really enjoyed our stay at The Yellow House. We felt very at home and enjoyed everything about the inn. We stayed in the Carolina Room which was charming and the rest of the inn was just as sweet. Breakfasts were delicious and happy hour each night was nicely done and a lot of fun. Innkeeper, Shawn handles everything so well and is a pleasure to talk with. We would highly recommend The Yellow House.
4.4 on June 25, 2013
This is one of our favorite Bed and Breakfasts....we return again and again. Always a delight! And Shawn and his staff are top notch.
5 on June 19, 2013
I never thought I could be so comfortable and "at home" in a place away from home. The house is beautiful - old and authentic (many fireplaces, and lots of lovely places to sit and relax), yet with every convenience. The rooms are beautiful and impeccably clean. The breakfasts were wonderful. The atmosphere is great, partly because the staff is cheerful, friendly and attentive, yet gave us plenty of space. Shawn, the innkeeper, is such a nice person - friendly, with some nice humor and some interesting stories about the Yellow House and area. Our entire visit exceeded my expectations and could not have been better - it was great!
4.8 on June 09, 2013
This was our 4th trip to the Yellow House, and we continue to be amazed by the beauty and hospitality. We love the romantic nature of the St. Paul room and the surrounding grounds, and always look forward to our next visit.
5 on May 28, 2013
My husband and I have stayed here twice and absolutely loved it both times. The house and grounds are beautiful and the staff are amazing. Shawn and his staff will do anything to make you feel comfortable and if you need anything they will make sure you get it. They are very accommodating. We highly recommend The Yellow House. We have stayed in two different rooms and both have been more than we ever thought they would be. The breakfast is AMAZING also. You can either have it delivered to your room or you can eat with others in the dining room. They also offer wine and cheese at 5 each night. AWESOME place to stay!!! We will be going back soon.

We loved our breakfast and our stay was very relaxing!
4.8 on May 14, 2013
Great place for a quiet getaway. You can stay on the property for the majority of your trip or venture into nearby Waynesville. The innkeeper and staff are more than accomodating, going out of their way to work with a late arrival for us.

Fabulous room! Shawn is a wonderful host. Breakfast in our room was superb! We'll be back next year.
4.8 on May 05, 2013
After having stayed in many B&Bs all over the country for many years, The Yellow House stands out among the best. We have stayed in two different suites and have loved both. Shawn is the perfect host and the breakfasts and snacks are wonderful. We also like the location, very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Waynesville. We travel to this area often and look forward to staying at the Yellow House again very soon.
5 on April 24, 2013
My husband and I had a delightful respite from demands of daily life, work, etc. in our 3 day stay at The Yellow House! We absolutely loved the beautiful and tranquil scenery of the surrounding area and our room accommodations!! We stayed in the Benitatxell Suite at the Pond House and so enjoyed the wonderful views of the two ponds, upper and lower. Being served a delicious breakfast at our little table in our suite with its grand view of such lovely and tranquil scenery was quite a memory-maker! Great service by all the staff was an added plus.
3.6 on April 22, 2013
The Yellow House was a perfect getaway to relax in a spacoius room with great views of a lake and brook in the mountains fo Wayneswille, NC. The loaction was also convienent to town and would reccomend for future stays!
5 on April 05, 2013
My wife and I have stayed at The Yellow House several times and have always had a great experience. We always leave wanting to return for another stay. This time we were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. Room was great, service excellent, staff was very friendly and helpful, and food was very good. Looking forward to returning for a stay soon.

Great B & B. Have visited several times. Can't wait to go back!
5 on March 04, 2013
I love staying at the Yellow House. Waynesville is one of my getaways from it all and this B&B offers the comfortable, quiet rooms and very yummy breakfast. The staff bends over backwards to help you. Highly recommend it, but please leave me a room.
5 on February 28, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming B&B. The host could not have been more welcoming, and the breakfast, made to order, set us up for the rest of the day. We plan on returning soon.
5 on February 24, 2013
We returned to The Yellow House this month and had another wonderful visit. We brought friends this time who enjoyed it as much as we do. We took advantage of the DVD player and picked out a great movie from the many choices. Loved our cheese and cracker tray, tasty tea and yummy cookies. Our room was so cozy and warm with the fireplace going. Breakfast was delicious, and we were fascinated watching all the birds outside while we ate. Shawn is the perfect host, and we can't wait to come for another stay!!
4.8 on February 22, 2013
A wonderful relaxing weekend away in our very comfortable and spacious room. We were welcomed very warmly by the inn keeper and given a tour of the property and taken to our suite. Wow what a wonderful place stay. The breakfast and early evening snacks were delicious and the service was superb. I highly recommend this wonderful jewel.

The comfort of the rooms, the food, the friendliness of the innkeeper and the staff make The Yellow House on Plott Creek our favorite B&B. Any season of the year is the right time for a visit. But our favorite time is late spring. Shawn's gourmet breakfast served on the big front porch is one of the most relaxing times you will ever enjoy.
5 on February 15, 2013
A lovely old house with wonderful service and a friendly staff who make you feel pampered, and appreciated. Shawn is a terrific Inn Keeper; Susan would be proud.

My Husband and I had such an incredible time at The Yellow House. Shawn, the Innkeeper, was so gracious and knowledgable about the Waynesville area. After an awesome breakfast, we spent the day hiking and driving the nearby mountains, enjoying the waterfalls and views. Dinner, at a nearby restaurant that Shawn recommended, was really tasty and reasonable. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great weekend.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the Yellow House.. The hospitality was terrific, the food delicious, and the room quite romantic. My only negative--which isn't much--is the dried floral arrangements! The decor is very slightly shabby-- which didn't detract from the quiet beauty of the view and the comforting ambiance of our room. We liked our stay at the Yellow House and would return without hesitation.

Shawn and the staff at The Yellow House could not have been more accommodating. We had the " small" Nantucket room. It is really large! I like a cold room for sleeping, but getting cold, not so much. No problem, hit the switch to turn on the fireplace and in five minutes, a nice toasty room with a pretty fire going to boot. Breakfasts are incredible, truly special and the daily fruit and cheese platter that appears in your room is a great accompaniment to a glass of wine. I enjoyed a nip of lovely port by the fire before I retired each evening. We will be back!

We stayed at The Yellow House to be close to our children and grandchildren for Christmas. It was wonderful. The rooms and home were charming. Breakfast was beyond scrumptuous. They even made a special breakfast for our daughter, who prefers eggs to French Toast, something I'll never understand. Shawn was terrific. All in all, I give my strongest recommendation to The Yellow House.

We had a great time at The Yellow House! We have stayed there several times and have always enjoyed it! The food is amazing, and so is the hospitality!

Shawn and his staff provide a great place to just relax and get away. The service was just right - available as needed and in no way intrusive. The food was excellent whether at breakfast or the afternoon wine and cheese. Our room was large and the bed was comfortable. There is plenty of reading material, movies and even a laptop if needed. There is a good selection of shops and restaurants in town and you are close to Asheville if the mood strikes.
5 on November 30, 2012
My stay at The Yellow House was a delight. The room was comfortable and well appointed and Shawn and the staff were attentive and genuinely friendly. Besides the fabulous breakfast prepared by Shawn, what I enjoyed were the amenities in the Butler's Pantry which were available to guests during the hours when staff was not present. Being able to fix a cup of tea, enjoy a freshly baked cookie, or a sip some port in comfortable surroundings made it all the more pleasant.

We have been to The Yellow House several times, stayed in different rooms/suites, and always have a wonderful stay.

Our room at the Yellow House was outstanding! I highly recommend it. The location is beautiful. The room was quiet and comfortable. There was no view from the room to speak of, but the setting is lovely and very scenic. The thing that stood out most about our Yellow House experience is that they seemed to have anticipated every need you might have. When we arrived, we checked in earlier than we had expected and before regular check-in time. The owner was most gracious and said "come on it"! We very much appreciated that. He was ready and prepared for us. We hadn't eaten lunch yet. Our thought was to check in and then explore a little and have lunch. Yellow House had provided a "cheese tray" for us in our fridge. So, we had no need to go find lunch! The cheese tray, complete with some sausages was perfect. That added to the value of our stay. We had been told that there is nothing to do in Waynesville and that we would need to go to other towns to find something to do. NOT TRUE! Waynesville is a wonderful little town. Full of nice shops and good restaurants. We spent the entire afternoon just in downtown and really enjoyed ourselves. You will not be sorry that you visited Waynesville, NC and stayed at the Yellow House.
4.8 on November 07, 2012
Our room was more than comfortable, the hospitality both warm and inviting, the food was incredible and Waynesville is a gem for a get away. Shawn was exteremely helpful with directions and restaurant selection as well as hikes. Will definitely return there.

excellent service, staff, facilities and area.

We were looking for a break from everyday life so it was nice NOT to have a TV or telephone in our room. The room was very comfortable and well furnished. We specifically liked the walk-in shower in the Kinsale suite. The host, Shawn, was a delight.
5 on October 14, 2012
If you are looking for a beautiful, inspiring, restful vacation, then Yellow House Inn in Waynesville is your best choice. We had a glorious time there with breath taking views, comfy beds, romantic room, and the best service we have had anywhere. The breakfast was so delicious and the host, Shawn, spoiled us with both the food and the service. Conveniently located to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the enjoyable town of Waynesville, you can do as much or as little as you want. Waynesville has great little shops to explore and wonderful restaurants..a great surprise from a small town. Don't miss the Sweet Onion for dinner! We can't wait to return to The Yellow House Inn.

Yellow House is a beautiful, charming, serene place to stay. My wife & I try to make it over to the Waynesville area a couple of times a year & this is the nicest place we have found. Inkeeper Shawn is particularly helpful and will accomodate most every need. We give it 5 stars.

What a great place to relax & enjoy. The food, accommodations, and staff were exceptional. Great location -- close to Blue Ridge Parkway and downtown Waynesville. Afternoon refreshments & snacks available 24/7. Looking forward to returning to enjoy fireplace & cozy robes.

The innkeeper, Sean, was quite helpful and gave us a lot of tips about the area. He also offered us ways to save money if we returned. The rooms were fabulous. Some don't have TV's, but the central dining area does, so you are not completely secluded. Waynesville is a nice place to shop and Asheville is just a few minutes down the road. Easy drive. We loved it and would definitely return.
5 on September 12, 2012
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the cheerful service, excellent breakfasts, and restful time together at this quiet getaway house.

We have stayed in many B&Bs across the US and this, by far, was our favorite. The room was gorgeous, the host so warm and welcoming and the breakfasts were outstanding. Loved it so much!

The Yellow House B&B was amazing. Shawn, the innkeeper, was great. 5 star accommodations. We will go back!

This was our third visit and we will definitely be back again. The accommodations and grounds are fantastic and the food is simply to die for. But best of all, the staff make us feel like family.
4.6 on September 05, 2012
Staying at the Yellow House was a very pleasant experience, especially for the first stay at a B&B. Shawn was extremely helpful - from making the reservations to hosting cheese and crackers in the afternoon until we left - he is a major credit to Yellow House success. The breakfast both mornings was wonderful, the atmosphere charming, and the grounds lovely. We loved being there, and hope to return.
4.6 on August 29, 2012
A lovely b&b. Conveniently located to golf, hiking, shopping and dining. Staff was helpful, thoughtful and hospitable.
5 on August 27, 2012
My husband and I have been staying at the Yellow House for the past 6 years and it just doesn't get any better !! Sean cooks a wonderful hot breakfast delivered to your room each morning. The rooms are very comfortable - we prefer the rooms that are not directly in the house, the Windward side and the one next to it which is bigger. Everything is outstanding !!!
5 on August 22, 2012
The house was beautiful - it was clean and the staff was extremly helpful and friendly. The breakfast was incredibly good and they took the time to serve it on our porch. The wine and appetizer at 5:00 every day was a pleasant surprise as well. Would highly recommend to anyone.
2.6 on August 21, 2012
Une nuit dans la "Pond house". Nous étions 4, il n'y avait que 3 couchages, ce qui n'avait pas été mentionné lors de la réservation. Notre fils a du dormir sur un canapé, car on ne nous a pas proposé de lit d'appoint.
Bien que je crois que chacun a le droit de coter nous en fonction de leur opinion, je suis déçu de la "contre-vérité" à propos de l'occupation de notre chambre. J'ai envoyé des courriels à l'invité deux monts avant leur arrivée que la chambre serait accueillir que trois, mais qu'ils ne pouvaient mettre leur jeune fils sur le canapé s'ils voulaient accueillir quatre personnes dans la salle. Mais je n'ai pas payer pour une quatrième personne.
4.6 on August 19, 2012
Staff and Service they provided were as good as it gets. Breakfast was a wonderful experience. I had WIFI issues in upstairs room and front porch of the house, but great reception in back even down by the pond. Suggest they check their WIFI coverage as we now sit on the front porch with our iPad to read the newspaper.
5 on August 17, 2012
Our 2nd visit with our Scottish Terriers. Very relaxing and enjoyable. The breakfasts were outstanding, and the staff is very friendly. We enjoyed sitting on the porch by the pond listening to the frogs and katiedids as well as walking the grounds. A beautiful place to stay in a quaint town in the mountains.

My wife and I were looking for restful vacation. The Yellow House was wonderful and is located in a beautiful area of North Carolina.
5 on August 12, 2012
This was our 2nd time visiting the Yellow House in Waynesville, NC. This time we made the trip up from Florida just to stay there! There are no downsides to this B&B- Shawn the inkeeper is fantastic, the food is delicious, and the rooms are great.
5 on July 29, 2012
My husband and I had such a fantastic time at The Yellow House! It was so quiet and comfortable and welcoming. The only complaint my husband had was that it was too quiet! We are used to 3 loud children and it was weird to have simple peace and quiet. The surroundings left nothing to be desired. They truly have thought of everything and made you feel perfectly at home but in a much more peaceful setting. Thank you so much for a much needed retreat from our busy life! We look forward to coming back in the not too distant future.
5 on July 25, 2012
Stayed in one of the rooms at the Pond House and loved it. Clean and well furnished. Breakfasts were great and more than enough. Very quiet yet close to town. Excellent service! I will be back.
3.8 on July 16, 2012
We spent 2 nights at The Yellow House in the Kinsale suite, and it rained almost the whole time. After venturing to the big house for a delicious breakfast on the front porch each morning (the strawberry/cream cheese-stuffed French toast is marvelous!), we stayed in bed, read books, and were lulled into long naps by the sound of rain on the roof and water flowing into the upper pond. It was perfect.
4.2 on July 12, 2012
Wonderful stay in a good location. Stayed in the montecito room which was very nice. House was beautiful and nicely landscaped. Breakfasts were perfect and the town of Waynesville was very enjoyable.
5 on July 11, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay. We hope to return. Waynesville is a great place to visit and we really enjoyed the Frog's Leap Pub as well.
5 on July 07, 2012
The Carriage House room is lovely, as is the rest of the beautifully landscaped and maintained property. Service and food were both excellent. You will not walk away from the breakfast table hungry or disappointed. Shawn knows the area well and has great suggestions for dining and day trips. We'll be back!
5 on June 20, 2012
The Yellow House was a bit of heaven located in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina! Our host, Shawn, was the perfect combination of accomodating, friendly and fountain of information on everything from where to eat, places to see, and things to do! Our suite was beyond any expectations we had - roomy, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and yes, we used the gas fireplace in June (just for fun!) We were served the most delicious breakfast and had a choice of where to have it served and the time! We made fast friends at the 5:00 happy hour - enjoying wine, cheese, etc. along with great converation with other guests! This experience was a l0 - and there is no doubt we will be calling Shawn for another weekend at heaven in the Yellow House! Susan Delaney

My husband and I needed a relaxful getaway after a stressful year of work and taking taking care of critically ill parents. Our stay at The Yellow House was just what the doctor ordered. The Inn itself is beautifully situated on a hill and is very welcoming. Everything from the nice staff and the delicious food made our stay more pleasant. Thanks Shawn for giving us such good tips on where to drive and hike in order to enjoy the countryside and the mountains. We would highly recommend this Inn and we hope to return again soon!

From welcome to goodbye, our B&B weekend was superb! Beautiful setting, friendly staff, clean rooms and delightful meals. Special requests are no problem.

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful overnight stay at The Yellow House. Everything was absolutely perfect. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. We had everything we could possibly need or want. The cheese and cracker tray, snacks, drinks, movies and books were all so nice and just the special touches that make this B&B stand out from the rest we have visited. Breakfast could not have been any better! We really enjoyed talking with and getting to know Shawn. His recommendation for dinner was excellent. We cannot wait to go back for another stay and take our friends with us!!!

We had a wonderful visit in Waynesville during our visit to the Asheville/Biltmore area. It was an easy drive to Asheville. We stayed in the E'Staing Suite and we had a beautiful view. Enjoyed breakfast in our room each morning and it was delicious. I would highly recommend a stay at The Yellow House.

My husband and I were looking for a Bed and Breakfast in the Mountains close to Asheville, NC. We chose The Yellow House on Plott Creek Rd. In Waynesville NC. We were not disappointed. We stayed in The Benitatxell Suite in The Pond House overlooking one of the two ponds on the property. It was the perfect setting to relax and rewind and rejuvenate. Shawn, Connie, Angie and all of the staff were so kind and supportive. Our breakfast was delivered each morning. We ate it each day overlooking the beautiful, peaceful pond. At night in the Main House delicious cheese and snacks were offered. Shawn baked a different cookie each day in the early afternoon. Shawn's cooking exceeded our expectations. Everyone was kind. We were only planning on a two day stay, but stayed 3 instead. We are glad that we did. Don & Christy We are looking forward to visiting again very soon!
5 on November 14, 2011
We enjoyed everything about The Yellow House! The food, the room, the view, the proximity to fun things to do! The hospitality of the staff was wonderful! We'll be back!

Everything was great, as it was the last time we visited. Shawn and the rest of the staff make you feel so welcome, and make every effort to accomodate you. The room was beautiful, very comfortable, and quiet. Afternoon snacks were delicious, and Shawn even delivered them to our room the 2nd night. I have already recommended The Yellow House to several friends, and I hope we can return in the spring.
5 on November 07, 2011
My husband and I stayed here Nov 4&5 2011 and absolutely loved the facility. Everything about it was so pleasant. The feel of The Yellow House, grounds and our room. We stayed in the Savannah Suite and when I checked in he informed us there was no TV in the room but one in the main house. But the room and everything about it was so nice we didn't even miss the tv. Shawn and Connie was such a pleasure to work with and get to know. My husband and I plan to make this a tradition to stay at The Yellow House. We had a wonderful massage in the room and just enjoyed the views and relaxed. I look forward to seeing them again and everyone please stop by and stay at this location. You will not be disappointed. Carrie Hardy Lancaster, SC

Very clean, large room. Well furnished - lots of small tables to place things on. B'fast was excellent and served in the room!! Unexpected treat! No phone - no tv - no internet was not expecting this, but didn't miss the distractions, just wasn't prepared to go cold turkey on all three (besides - we did have cell phones). Will definitely recommend it to others!

This was our second time at the Yellow House and both my husband and I felt at home both times. Very warm and friendly folks that run the B&B. Going back next year for round three.

It was my first B&B experience but not the last.I was truly amazed and satisfied with the experience.Interaction with staff and guests was a pleasant surprise compared to all of my past stays in hotels and motels.Amenities were plentiful and better than being at home.Many of the guests that came and went while we were there said the Yellow House was the exception of B&B's.

What a pleasant surprise! I had my doubts at first but the Yellow House definitely exceeded my expectations at all accounts. Excellent service by Shawn, great breakfast, nice & big room with 5 star quality bathroom. Couldn't be more pleased and definitely will be back for more. Thanks

My wife and I celebrated our aniversary with something new...a B&B. We had heard the Yellow house was great, so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the kensale suite. It was perfect...clean and just what we wanted, romantic seclusion. We had Bfk in our suite the first AM and went to the Dining Room the next. The food was excellent. Shawn was great and provided for everything without being too intrusive. The weather was rainy, but we had a great time and have added the Yellow House to the places we want to visit again.
5 on October 21, 2011
Shawne was the perfect host. Superb place and so convenient. The BREAKFAST was unbelievable, as was the cocktail hour. All the rooms are different, and appealing to anyone - large, very clean, and great bathrooms. Shawne takes care of any of your needs.

My husband and I needed a place to get away and just relax and enjoy each other with the hustle and bustle of work, kids and everyday life. We chose The Yellow House. It was absolutlely the PERFECT place to do this. The accomodations could have not been any better. We stayed in a room in the Pond House and it was great. The view from the breakfast table was so beautiful and serene. It looked over a pond that waterfalled into another pond. Our bedroom was furnished perfectly, from the big comfortable sleigh bed to the fireplace and jacuzzi. We had the option to eat breakfast with the guest in the main house or have it served in our room. The breakfast was DELICIOUS! In the evening, we enjoyed wine and cheese on the porch of the main house and enjoyed meeting the other guests. Then there was the staff. Shawn, Connie and the girls made sure that everything was PERFECT!! You could look high and low and still not find a more friendly and accommodating staff. They treated you like royalty and family! As I stated in the beginning, it was PERFECT!! We will definately be returning!!
5 on September 17, 2011
Shawn is the perfect innkeeper! He welcomes your reservation with an email, with information, and when you arrive, he will give you the full tour, showing you the inn, any rooms that are available, show you where the Port wine is, the candy, cookies, popcorn, tell you about the library and videos, and learn your choices for breakfast. He makes you feel at home the minute you walk in. This was our fourth visit in six months and second time we took friends (who will return). You will have a choice of having breakfast in your room or in the dining room, next to a spotless kitchen with a health rating of 100...Shawn and his staff prepare a special breakfast that is guaranteed to be delicious and beautiful. The morning we had breakfast in the room, they called to learn which juices we wanted (out of 6-7), and delivered that along with a fruit bowl, and coffee. Then took our order for eggs, and then in about 10 minutes arrived with a loaded plate, with more than you can eat...the next morning, we had a beautiful plate of Strawberry French toast along with sausage....almost forgot the wine and cheese, meat, fruit and crackers in the afternoon.....and the tea caddy is available with about a dozen kinds of tea. You will not find a more comfortable or enjoyable B & B in the area nor will you be disappointed with any part of The Yellow House.....and while in Waynesville, don't miss the Shelton Museum of NC, in downtown....outstanding displays of crafts, textiles, beautiful view of the mountains, and Jackie is extremely knowledgeable of everything in it. Have fun!

My husband and I try to come once a year, its a great place full of beauty. Clean, relaxing, great people. The food is awesome and I love to wake up to their breakfast. I would recommend tv and dvd players in rooms for those of us who are movie lovers.
5 on September 07, 2011
We visited Waynesville and the Yellow House for a long Labor Day weekend. Even before arriving, Shawn our host set the tone for a relaxing weekend with our email confirmation letter. Our booked room in the Pond House was very spacious and clean, but we were given the opportunity to stay the second night in the main house and really appreciated Shawn and the Yellow House for being so accommodating. Breakfasts were enjoyed out on the front porch with great food and service, and evening receptions were a nice way to meet the other guests. The House has numerous games and decks of cards that can be enjoyed and fresh baked cookie were an inviting treat. I would highly recommend checking out the Yellow House if you are looking for a relaxing, high-quality experience in the Wayneville area.
5 on September 05, 2011
We stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed it! The room was fabulous and the gourmet breakfast each morning was beyond belief; Shawn is a great Chef! Overall stay was great! Very friendly atmosphere; beautiful views and lots to do in nearby Waynesville.

What a great place to stay! Shawn and the staff were so helpfull and friendly. They made us feel at home and the food was outstanding as well. We will visit again. Great shopping and places to eat in Waynesville just a short drive from the Yellow House.

We found this Bed & Breakfast Inn by chance on the internet, and booked for our first 5 nights accommodation on a 3 week vacation, and what a gem it turned out to be. The one thing that sets this above all others we have visited is Shawn - the innkeeper. Watch the video of Shawn talking about the house and you will get a feel for what to expect during your stay. In addition to his very relaxed manner he is an incredible cook. The quality of the breakfast items served were quite outstanding and we have just used one of his recipies for dinner this evening back in the UK. In addition to breakfast there are facilities for making a selection of hot & cold drinks, several snacks/fruit, and daily freshly baked cookies! You will not be disappointed with the food. The evening get together with wine, cheese and biscuits was another favourite where we met the other guests, and what a great crowd they turned out to be from all over the USA. The house is stunning and the location is in a setting which is very peaceful and relaxing (even the air conditioning in the rooms is so quiet). The Inn is located within easy driving distance of many places you may wish to visit - Biltmore, Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountain railroad to mention a few. We found plenty to keep us occupied during our 5-night stay. The local Waynesville town was a delight with several good restaurants for dinner. Our only complaint is that we didn't stay for longer. This place is just what you have always dreamed about.

We live in Waynesville, and had long admired the beautiful Yellow House. So, when our twelve family members came to help celebrate our anniversary, we gave them our house and jumped at a chance to see first-hand how wonderful this place really is. We were not disappointed. Our room was huge, charming and elegant. Shawn was so gracious to show me every room when I visited to make a reservation, The variety is huge, and there is something that would please everyone. They even have a pet friendly room. The breakfasts are wonderful, as is the wine and cheese time in the afternoon. The setting is in the beautiful and cool Blue Ridge mountains along Plott Creek, and is very convenient to access roads and downtown Waynesville. If you plan to visit Waynesville, and want the perfect relaxing experience, this is it.

We chose to stay at The Yellow House for honeymoon. We could not have made a better choice. We felt so pampered and spoiled by the time we left. The service here is what sets The Yellow House apart from any other place I have ever stayed (including the fancy hotels). Not only will we come back but we are recommending this place to everyone we know.

After having stayed at many of the Select Registry locations I can only rate the Yellow House the BEST of the BEST. Shawn and his staff really go out of their way at every turn - from the breakfast to die for to the cookies that find their way to the jar every afternoon. Shawn was in great pain with his back when were were staying but still, nothing was too much and always with a smile !!!! We will pass the word to all we know and Susan you have really found a superb crew to take care of your wonderful inn.........

We spent a couple ok days at The Yellow House over the 4th of July and could not have picked a better place for a weekend getaway. In fact we wish that we had been able to stay longer. The service was incredible in every respect. Shawn and his staff took excellent care of us from the great breakfast to the wine and cheese in the afternoon.

First time staying at the Yellow House. Found it to be very relaxing and welcoming. Situated in a quiet rural neighborhood setting a couple miles from downtown which is what we wanted. Quiet. Attractive grounds and a delicious breakfast was provided on the porch. Stayed in the Windward room which was beautifully appointed. The only drawback was the a/c was rather loud. If we hadn't needed it, then it would have been perfect, but we're glad it was available as it was hot the days we were there. Regardless we enjoyed it and recommend it to others.

My boyfriend and I decided to take a break from reality for a short 3 day getaway at this B&B. The drive up to the property is so beautiful and the inside of the house is even more exquisite. You are made to feel so welcome and feel so at home! We stayed in the suite on the bottom floor which provided complete privacy with your own patio overlooking the pond area...peaceful and relaxing. The wonderful breakfast, evening cheese tray and plush room take you away from life's stress and offer relaxation to every part of the mind and body!!!!

We visited The Yelow House for our 13th wedding anniversary weekend. It was everything their website promised - and more! The house is lovely, with every amenity you could want, Shawn was extra thoughtful of my food allergies and the grounds were a fairyland dream complete with flowing water falls. We made ourselves at home as if we were visiting a favorite family homestead. We'll definitely be back!

The innkeeper at The Yellow House, Shawn, was so kind and saw to our every need. He was very personable and made us immediately feel at ease in the bed and breakfast setting. He also indulged my passion for plants by allowing me to get "cuttings" of different types of groundcover, etc. to take back home with us. Connie, our housekeeper, was just what you would want your server at breakfast to be like. These two key staff people really are what makes or "breaks" a weekend getaway at a bed and breakfast. The house and grounds were very beautiful and relaxing. We had a great romantic weekend! We hope to go back again as soon as possible.

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 35th anniversary at a B&B in western NC and the Yellow House was recommended by our daughter and son-in-law. What a great recommendation it was! The room (we stayed in the S'conset) was fantastic with a very comfortable king bed, whirlpool tub and lots of sitting room. We had our breakfast on the porch both mornings of our stay where we enjoyed the company of some of the other guests. And, yes, the food is outstanding. Shawn really knows his way around a kitchen and is a gracious host! The rest of the staff were courteous, kind and attentive. This was our best B&B experience yet. Will we go back? Absolutely! Would we recommend it to others? We already have!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Yellow House would recommend it to anyone staying in the Waynesville area. Shawn was a great host and gave us many recommendations for eating/sightseeing.

Shawn was fantastic. The whole stay was marvelous. I was looking for privacy and quietness, and I got all that plus a beautiful view of woods and water from my balcony. The breakfasts were outstanding for a B & B. Relaxation was what I needed and I got it first class with beauty. Howard Anderson

Our friend had told us about the Yellow House for a number of years and we decided to spend the a night and see a play at the Flatrock theater.The Band B is great. The management is always visible; the cleanliness is the best of any B and B that i have every seen and it is a wonderful setting, too. We will be back

What a great place for a get away from it all vacation. The room was super. The service from the staff and Innkeeper was extraordinary, the breakfast each morning made me want to get up early just to make sure I didn't miss it. All in all one of the best Bed and breakfast Inns I have ever been to.

Our anniversary visit to The Yellow House far exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable with an extremely welcoming and helpful staff. We truly felt at home. Meals were delicious; the grounds breathtaking. We will be back!

My wife and I have stayed in B&B establishments up and down the eastern united states. The Yellow House excells all others. The furnishings, The grounds, The gourmet breakfasts and afternoon snacks are excellent. The entire experience is topped off by the congeniality of the host Shawn and the staff. Even our dogs enjoyed themselves exploring the landscaped grounds. J&O Naples Maine

The peaceful and lovingly maintained grounds of the Yellow House enveloped us as we drove up the long, curving driveway to the main house. This laid back, yet totally sophisticated, property felt instantly at home. Our room was delightfully decorated and Shawn even had a cheese and cracker tray in the unit's fridge for our enjoyment upon arrival. My wife and I are traveling Canadians dawdling our way around the south and we were thrilled to have found a home for the night in the Windward Room at the Yellow House. The morning sunrise over the Blue Ridge gave me the opportunity to exercise my photo skills, but only because the Yellow House was such a wonderful subject.
5 on April 22, 2011
This is by far the best B&B we have stayed at. The staff and owner were exceptional, the food was great and the rooms are incredible! Want to sleep on a cloud or indulge yourself in your own private jacuzzi? This is the place to get away from it all. We travel alot and have stayed in many different places. The Yellow House will exceed all your expectations and make you yearn for a king size bed at home.
5 on April 22, 2011
We had the pleasure of staying at the Yellow House 4-12 thru 4-15.....Shawn was the most wonderful host......made us feel like family. A beautiful home, fantastic breakfasts, a host of extras.....by far the best B and B we have ever visited....we would visit again in a heartbeat.
4.4 on April 11, 2011
Arrived for a 3 night stay and were warmely greated by Shawn who toured us through the beautiful home. The room was clean and spacious, refrigerator well stocked with water, sodas and snacks. The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful. Shawn had a lot of great information about the local area and helped us with dinner reservations. We had a relaxing stay and would recomend The Yellow House to all.thanks again.
5 on March 30, 2011
My retreat at The Yellow House was as if I was in the comfort of my own home, surrounded by my best friends, as each and every one of them pampered me in every way imaginable. From the easy listening music to the food to the scenery and lodging accommodations, each sense was stimulated. Thank you, Shawn, Connie and Angie, for such a soul-satisfying experience!
5 on March 23, 2011
We have stayed at the Yellow House on several previous occasions and have never been disappointed. It is a beautiful and charming inn. Shawn did a terrific job of making our weekend stay relaxing, pleasant and couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. We have enthusiastically recommended The Yellow House to many of our friends and we will be back.
5 on March 16, 2011
We had such an incredible weekend! The room was beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The staff was so welcoming and made our stay so comfortable! This is one of our favorite B&Bs and we will definitely be returning!
5 on January 05, 2011
We just got back from another wonderful escape at The Yellow House. We've been going there for years but this time we had the whole house to ourselves which was fun because you can sneak down to the kitchen at night and fix a cup of tea or read in front of the fire. It's like having your own private turn-of-the-century mansion! The Innkeeper, Shawn, was so gracious. He made us feel right at home. I love the music that plays throughout the house. It never fails to relax me. And, the pumpkin pancakes were delicious! We'll be back again soon!
5 on January 02, 2011
My husband and I stayed at the Yellow House for a long weekend. The staff was extremely accommodating to our every need. We had in house massages and the director of the inn called me to arrange the times/ specific requests. The breakfasts were delicious. We had the option to go to the dining room to eat with everyone or have breakfast brought to our room. Our room was very spacious and we had a beautiful view. We wish we could have stayed longer... If we return, we will stay at the Yellow House again!!
4.8 on January 02, 2011
This was our first Christmas without children and grandkids. So our thought was to go away and be distracted. This was the best distraction! Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. Shawn the innkeeper was awesome from communication before arriving to showing us around. He was great. We woke up to snow on Christmas morning and it did not stop which kept us from going to Asheville so we were treated to a ham when we were hungry. "Let the kitchen be yours." Wow never had that at a bed-n-breakfast. The little touches of crackers and cheese to munch on. Movies to watch or to just sit by the fire and drink a glass of port. How relaxed we became. I would highly recommend the Yellow House (my favorite color too!!). We will return. Hope you will too. PS My jack russell was even welcomed and treated with kindness.

Our stay at the Yellow House B&B was outstanding. Shawn upgraded us to a better room after experiencing heating problems which were beyond his control at our booked room. The breakfasts were fantastic, especially the strawberry stuffed french toast, yum! The staff went out of their way to make us feel at "home" and comfortable at the residence and in the city of Waynesville, making dinner reservations for us and providing pre-printed directions to keep us from getting lost. The couples massage package was top-notched. We will be returning for more fun times. Jeff & Laura Warnke, Cullman, Al

Great B&B. Definitly plan to revisit in the future. Rooms, food, hospitality was terrific. Approx. 5 minutes from downtown Waynesville.

We just wanted a little get away and boy did we find it. What a beautiful place with wonderful food and excellent, friendly service. We highly recommend the Yellow House.

Returned for another visit to one of our favorite B&Bs in the country. As usual, the entire experience lived up to their standard of excellence! Relaxing, quiet, great food, all the amenities you need, great location in the mountains, superb service from the innkeeper and staff! We'll be back again--that's for sure!
5 on November 03, 2010
Our stay at The Yellow House was perfect! The Kinsale Suite was roomy and a perfect location on the grounds if you're looking to have a little privacy but all of the amenities of the main house. It was SUCH a nice option to have breakfast brought to your room each day - don't find that everywhere! Shawn was extremely knowledgable, helpful and friendly! Great location to be close to Asheville, Biltmore, and some GREAT sights on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Cannot recommend enough!!
5 on November 03, 2010
Before I arrived at The Yellow House, I was sure that the Pictures and descriptions on the website had to be exaggerated, but when I arrived, I found the perfect B&B in the most beautiful setting imaginable. The Innkeeper Shawn and his staff did everything possible to make my wife's and mine stay the most enjoyable three days we have spent since our honeymoon. The fall colors and the weather were the icing on the cake. I promise to make the Yellow House my go to place from now on. I will be Back.
5 on October 18, 2010
Wow!! The beauty, the service, the rooms, the amazing breakfasts, the little extras that the staff and innkeeper Shawn did to make our stay great, can not be measured on a scale. It is truly Outstanding service plus. We will come back again and again.
3.8 on October 16, 2010
Our stay at the The Yellow House was first a gift given to my husband and I by friends who had been there and seen for themselves for a lovely place it is. We arrived and were met by Shawn as he was seemingly just waited for us to arrive. He showed around the house and we met some very special folks that we ate breakfast with each morning and had appetizers each afternoon. We we escorted to our cottage and my it was just beautiful. Everything we saw on the website and much more for you can't describe the memories and special times you make while you are there. A special thank you to all who made it so special to my hubby and I. God bless you all!!

The most wonderful Bed and Breakfast I have stayed in. Shawn, the innkeeper, was a wonderful, warm host (and a great chef). He helped to make our stay "OUTSTANDING"! Thank you.

We stayed here four nights and enjoyed every minute. Breakfasts were great. Staff was helpful and not intrusive. Near the Smoky Mountains and Ashville. Good restaurants in Waynesville. Highly recommend this B&B!!!

Excellent - all the way around! We loved staying here and wish we could have stayed a little while longer. Our host and staff were wonderful, accomodations were beautiful and well maintained as were the grounds. Breakfast was outstanding! What pamparing!! We highly recommend it!

What a great place to relax and take in the beauty of the mountains. Shawn is an outstanding manager and it shows in the quality of service, food and happy employees

The Yellow House was such a lovely and perfect experience! I had never visited a Bed and Breakfast before but found that The Yellow House surpassed all of my expectations. I was in need of a quiet and relaxing escape from my busy life and stressful job. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt at home. The staff and service made me feel like a special guest, a top priority. Traveling alone as a young woman, I was nervous at first but always felt safe and comfortable at The Yellow House. I still think about the amazing breakfasts I enjoyed on the balcony followed by a day of reading and walking around the beautiful grounds. I left feeling renewed, relaxed, and reconnected with myself. When my friends ask me about my stay, I always say it was "beautiful--the rooms, grounds, and mountain views." I can't wait to return to The Yellow House!
5 on September 11, 2010
Outstanding accommodations. The innkeepers have thought of everything a guest might need. I would highly recommend the Yellow House to any traveler looking for comfort and hospitality.
5 on September 08, 2010
Any thing you could dream about this facility has. Quiet, romance, hidden away from everyday life, waterfall on grounds and two ponds. Just wonderful!! The food is exceptional. You couldn't hand pick a better staff if you done it yourself.
3.8 on September 03, 2010
My wife and I have stayed in a lot of B&B's but the Yellow house is our favorite. The YH offers a lush beautiful setting outside and a gentle charm on the inside the Innkeepers, Shawn Bresnahan, is responsible and gracious, and Connie’s care giving is warm
5 on August 28, 2010
My brother and I are building homes in Waynesville and we needed a place to stay while discussing our building plans with the contractor. This is a wonderful B&B, beautifully decorated, quite and the service is exceptional. The rooms were very clean and the food was fabulous. We will be staying at the yellow house many times during the buidling of our retirement homes. Our wives will love this B&B and will want to come often with us. The Innkeeper is very friendly and has a great personality. We requested that breakfast be served earlier than normal to accomodate our schedule for the day and it was no problem. Very accomodating. As I said, we will be back often. Thanks for everything. Kenny Terry Dawson - Atlanta, Georgia

I have stayed at Yellow House a few times and I have to say, i t is wonderful. Stress free. Shawn and his staff are the best. Make you feel at home.

My husband, our scotties and I had a grand time at The Yellow House. The accommodations were outstanding so upscale which allows dogs as well. The landscape was beautiful including the pond and the creek that ran down the slop. Our happy hour included our dogs. The treats so hearty and plentiful. We were served breakfast in our room.....awe...the fruit so colorful and plentiful, then French toast with strawberries and bacon. The dogs even had their own water and food mat. No amenities were overlooked for sure. Shawn and Connie were most gracious. A definite return for our family!

Shawn, our innkeeper, and staff made a weekend memorable! Great food, clean inn and restful experience! Enjoyed the porches while watching a summer evening thunderstorm. Perfect NC mountain retreat! Will return!

We had a delightful night even with a 14 year and 5 year old. The bullfrog serenaded us in the evening. Jefferson's French toast could not have been more delicious!

The innkeeper, Shawn, and the owners thought of everything 2 people would possibly need. The rooms were beautifully decorated. The meals were great and the classical, easy listening music to the rooms was relaxing.
4.6 on July 27, 2010
The room was immaculate, and cozy; the food was excellent. I really enjoyed sitting out on the front porch every morning in my robe (furnished by the Inn) and drinking my coffee before breakfast was served. Thanks Shawn for the excellent service and great food. I can't wait to come back. Connie R.
5 on July 26, 2010
We are returning guests of The Yellow House. We love Select Registry B&B's, but TYH is by far our favorite. The romantic, intimate setting , the mountain views, gourmet food, and exemplary customer service exceed our expectations every time. Whether it be strolling the quaint town, just minutes away, or relaxing on the hammocks watching the hundreds of fire flies, one is certain to find a peaceful setting that is second to none. My husband and I cannot wait to return again in the near future.
5 on July 13, 2010
My husband and I needed a much needed break. A friend recommended The Yellow House. We were extremely impressed with our room. We stayed in the Windward Side room. The music piped into the room was so delightful. We had breakfast each morning on the balcony. The scenery was pleasantly peaceful and the breakfast was outstanding! Shawn, the innkeeper, was welcoming from the very first moment we met him checking in. He recommended great places to eat and activities to see and do in the area. We are most definitely coming back! Waynesville is a very charming, quaint town. We recommend visiting the Chef's Table, and ordering their Bourbon Chicken entree; it was quite delicious. The Yellow House is the place to stay for a refreshing and relaxing get away. You will feel totally and completed relaxed!
5 on July 05, 2010
My husband and I have stayed at the Yellow House several times. In fact, we have decided it is our favorite B&B. We enjoy taking trips to get away, and always feel relaxed after a visit to this special place. Susan, Shawn and the staff make you feel at home. The rooms are thoughtfully appointed, and the overall atmosphere is a romantic getaway. During each visit we have enjoyed having breakfast in our room. We have stayed in the Carriage House and The Estainge. Both rooms are gorgeous but our favorite is the Estainge suite due to the separate sitting area (a good option if your partner is an early riser or likes to read late) and the covered veranda. The outside sitting area on the veranda has a picturesque view of the mountains. It is a delightful spot to have breakfast and catch up on some reading to start your day. Although you may find it hard to leave your room, if you do venture out there is plenty to do in the area, whether you take in a day trip for sightseeing or visit local artists or gift shops. In summary, we have enjoyed each of our visits to the Yellow House immensely and will be sure to return again.
5 on June 29, 2010
I went to The Yellow House Inn to de-stress, and from the moment I walked through the entrance, it was clear that relaxation was exactly what this B&B was created for. My room was a wonderful combination of old-fashioned homeyness and modern luxury, where beautiful and functional antiques create a mood of timelessness and comfort. The Inn's public areas have lots of cozy little nooks and corners that invite lounging. What a luxury it was to sit in a big, cozy chair with a freshly baked cookie and a cup of good coffee and a view of a busy bird feeder. I can't wait to come back in the fall and curl up in front of one of the fireplaces! The innkeeper, Shawn, made a point of reminding me that the grounds beyond the Inn were also "mine." As I wandered, I discovered all manner of gazebos, benches, and hammocks--some perfect for solitary communes or peaceful naps, others an invitation to quiet conversation. After dark, I sat on a wicker sofa in a gazebo lit by a citronella flame, sipped a glass of wine and just listened to the bullfrogs "sing." Although the Inn had lots of other guests while I was there, the atmosphere was always quiet and the staff managed to make me feel as if I was the only person in residence. This was my first visit to The Yellow House, but I will undoubtedly return to visit over and over again.
5 on June 28, 2010
A lovely place to get a way from it all. Each room is more beautiful than the next. The breakfast was superb and the staff was friendly and helpful. The charm and the friendly atmosphere made it easy to make all of us feel "at home" and enjoy our stay immensely.
5 on June 27, 2010
Stayed two nights on business and enjoyed The Yellow House soo much I returned the next week and brought family for an overnight. Shawn is delightful. He cannot do enough to make a guest's visit a great experience. The property and the house are both beautiful and welcoming. Delicious breakfast and great evening cocktail treats. Connie is another asset at this property - she too makes everyone feel at home. My husband and I have stayed at many Select Registery properties and this one is way up there on the list. I have already mentioned this property to friends and we plan to do a weekend in the fall. Can't wait to return. JRM - Charlotte, NC
4.6 on June 18, 2010
The Yellow House has amazing grounds and a comfortable front porch on the main house that made me want to just sit and listen to the birds. There are, however, lots of hiking trails and other things to do on and around the property. The breakfast and cocktail hour food items were wonderful, particularly a special chocolate treat made by the manor keeper himself. Thanks for a wonderful time!
4.8 on June 10, 2010
My husband and I spent two days at The Yellow House and loved it. The house is beautiful and comfortable and the breakfast and afternoon hors d'oeuvres were absolutely delicious. We loved the peach stuffed french toast and sausage. The innkeeper, Shawn, was a great host and a great cook with attention to the details. The grounds and the view from the house and our room were so pretty and relaxing. It was nice to have central A/C (individually controlled in our room), microwave and small refrigerator in our room, not to mention a stocked pantry for guests to get snacks, drinks and ice. I can't wait to go back. We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts and this was our favorite.
5 on June 09, 2010
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Yellow House. Our stay was greatly enhanced by the care of Sean, our innkeeper. His attention to detail as well as his contribution to the outstanding breakfast was superb.
5 on June 08, 2010
I stayed at the Yellow House in June 2010. Everything about my stay was outstanding! My room accommodations were over the top. I had a jaccuzi tub in my room and a fabulous view of the gardens. Breakfast in the mornings on the porch with a slight breeze blowing and a meal that was fit for a queen. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The property was breathtaking. I spent one afternoon laying in a hammock reading a book. So relaxing. Wine and cheese was served in the evening, fresh flowers in my room, waterfall on the property. I just can't say enough. What a wonderful stay!!! Vicki
4.2 on May 30, 2010
We enjoyed a very relaxing stay while extensive options for sightseeing and dining were also available. Accomodations were superb.
5 on May 24, 2010
My wife and I travel to the United States once a year, and this year we chose to visit North Carolina and the mountains. We could not have picked a better Inn than the Yellow house. Shawn and his staff really made us feel a part of the family at the Inn and everything was five star wonderful. The grounds were beautiful, peaceful and quiet, So much so that birds had built nests in the ferns near our room and little baby birds were already hatched and feathered. The food was rich and tasty, from the breakfast in our room to the handmade chocolate and the cheese and vegetable dips served in the afternoon. We were close to many hiking trails and points of interest, and when we were ready for dinner, Shawn directed us to some very good locally run restaurants that were friendly and welcoming. The only bad part of our stay was leaving, but we hope to be back in this region once again, and we will surely stay at the Yellow house.
5 on May 17, 2010
This was our first time vacationing at The Yellow House on Plott Creek Road and this will not be the last. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. We had a scrumptious breakfast that was freshly prepared each morning. The bed and breakfast was centrally located between Asheville and Cherokee which made day trips very easy and convenient. The gardens during the spring were heavenly. I would recommend this location for a romantic wedding or for hosting wedding parties. Also, the B & B would be a cozy place for newly weds to enjoy breakfast in bed while overlooking the manicured lawns. The Yellow House is also a wonderful location to host a business retreat.
5 on May 02, 2010
The Yellow House in Waynesville, NC has got to be the world's best kept secret when it comes to great bed and breakfast Inns. A business associate recommended the Yellow House to me after he stayed there for an anniversary weekend and told me how peaceful, warm and friendly the Inn was to visitors. I stayed for three days in April and I can not imagine (or ever expect) to have as good a stay anywhere else in the world. The rooms were unique and inviting, and I was given my choice of a free upgrade because another guest had cancelled. I chose the St. Paul room which couldn't have been any better if they had tried. Though I ate in the dining room only once, (the other two times I was served on my porch overlooking one of their ponds), the instant comraderie with the other guests was magnified due to the friendliness and true warmth of the staff. The staff anticipated and sometimes directed my every whim, which truly made this stay the ultimate 3 day vacation. I hated to leave, but I have already booked a return stay in the summer, and I expect to be as regular as the seasons to this perfect getaway.
5 on April 13, 2010
We spent the weekend at the Yellow House and found it to be more than perfect. We were greeted by friendly faces that were always smiling and ready to assist in ensuring our stay was everything we wanted, even if it meant leaving us to explore on our own. We were given a 4-5 page set of ideas of things to do and see, which included detailed directions. We used it often and were never disappointed or lost. The time we spent in our suite was ideal. We had all the amenities we needed and more. We were served breakfast in our suite every morning. There were sweet treats and cheese with crackers in the evening. All of the food was delicious! The atmosphere was very comfortable, relaxing, and we definitely felt welcome. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend! We're actually trying to find another weekend in the near future that we can return. It was absolutely wonderful!

What a great place to stay! My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with the Yellow House, the food, the staff and especially Susan. I've traveled a lot for business and am VERY picky when it comes to cleanliness. I gave four marks for cleanliness which really isn't quite fair since there were some cob webs up in the corners of one of the rooms, but the rest of the property is spotless. We will be back and have already started recommending it to friends.
5 on October 27, 2009
This is true Southern Charm. The house and grounds were beautiful and our hostess Susan truly made you feel at home. As of now this is our favorite B&B and we shall surely return soon.
5 on October 25, 2009
The first time we visited the mountains of North Carolina, about 14 years ago in October, we were unable to get into any of the better known B&B's. The Yellow House had just opened and we were able to make a reservation for ourselves and our friends. We have been back every October since then and also visit there at least 3 other times each year. We can not sing the praises of The Yellow House and its staff loudly enough. The Innkeeper, Susan Cerise, is friendly, accommodating, and very capable. She manages her staff well and this is reflected in their outstanding performance. The rooms are decorated beautifully, the breakfasts and the evening get-together are superb. It is truly an escape from the everyday stresses in a pleasant and welcoming environment. RADM and Mrs. Bob Merrilees

Oliver and Elizabeth stayed at The Yellow House end of June 2009 and had an awesome stay. Susan Cerise, the owner and Operator of this Bed and Breakfast was absolutely adorable and stayed on top of our every needs. Breakfast was served in our guest suite and was prepared comparable to what you can expect from a 5 Star restaurant. The 5 acre grounds were absolutely magnificent and manicured. We mingled with other guests for the daily 5.30pm wine and cheese in the main house. This was a very memorable stay and we will come back for more relaxing weekends in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. Thank you Susan Oliver and Lizzy

Beautiful inn in every respect, with large rooms that have useful ammenities.Comfortable and clean common areas. Grounds are well kept with a large pond at the back of the inn .We love to sit on the deck or on one the swings, and enjoy a cold drink. The Innkeeper Susan Cerise, and her staff are ever so warm, with down to earth hospitality southern style. Everything at the inn keeps improving with Susan's nuturing and we shall continue a visit. On our list of Band B's ot return to, this ones a keeper.

Since I often read many reviews on a place before staying there I couldn't help but want to tell everyone about my recent stay at The Yellow House. It was recommended by friends and needless to say this place not only met our expectations, but exceeding them in almost every way. We stayed in the St. Paul de Vence Suite. It was a tucked away haven of serenity, elegance, comfort, and charm. The amenities, the private patio, the jacuzzi tub, the cozy bed, the smoothing music piped into our room, and the intoxicating effect of the suite's lighting- all combined to create the most amazing weekend for my husband and I to reconnect and reaffirm our love for God and for each other. The evening Hors D'oeuvres, the sweetness of the innkeepers, and the many examples of attention to detail were also added benefits of this wonderful place. To top it all off was the delectable breakfast courses we enjoyed in the comfort of our room while hearing the sounds of nature just outside our patio door. Again, I can't say enough nice things about this place, and hope others will have the opportunity to experience it as we did.

Recently married my wife and i could only take a short honeymoon and the yellow house was recommended and we went. Susan and staff bent over backwards to fill our every need. The carriage house is what you want but i would guess theres not a bad room on the property. Already planning another trip in august. Dont hesitate! stephen and kim

We spent the first half of our honeymoon at this incredible hideaway and loved it so much we wished we had spent the entire week there. We can't wait to go back. Susan treated us like royalty from the moment we drove up and spoiled us throughout our stay. The Inn is gorgeous and impeccably decorated. We had a blast and can't wait to go back.

I was in Asheville in early January for business and decided to stay at a B&B for some downtime at the end of the day. The Yellow House was the perfect choice! I started each day with a fabulous breakfast and was able to relax upon my return at the end of the day. I won't make my next trip to The Yellow House alone, as this is the perfect setting for a romantic get-away.

When my wife and I got married we did not have time for a honeymoon because we were both in graduate school. We could only go somewhere nearby and only for a few nights. All my friends gave me mixed advice about the whole idea of B&B's, but I wanted something really special. My first thought was to look for somewhere in Asheville but wanted a more intimate setting; I found the Yellow House! When I talked to Susan at the Yellow House, she was incredibly cooperative. I waned a romantic setting and she suggested the Carriage House Suite. it was a gorgeous room and overall setting. When I asked for a rose petal turndown and a bottle of champagne on arrival, she said no problem. Breakfasts were incredible! The nightly hors d'oeuvres and wine were perfect and with the leaves changing, it was perfect. Thanks to Susan and all the staff of the Yellow House for a wonderful honeymoon!

The Yellow House has become our favorite B&B in the Waynesville area - and we've visited many here over the past 10 years. Susan and her staff go above & beyond to make their guests feel at home. The hospitality is outstanding, complete with exceptional homemade gourmet breakfasts and wonderful evening appetizers & wine. We always enjoy conversations with other guests and with the staff, who are welcoming, light-hearted, and down-to-earth. Accommodations are always incredibly comfortable, charming and top notch in quality. (I even called Susan months after our first stay to find out which pillows they use. She gladly dug out the packages from the basement for me & now I've got those pillows in my own home.) Such an amazing place - I'd enthusiastically recommend The Yellow House to anyone.

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing weekend get-away and our friend recommended that we stay at the Yellow House. We had a marvelous experience! We were planning to get away in September but our schedules forced us to go in October, but we are happy our trip was delayed because the leaves were turning and the weather was perfect. The Yellow House is perfectly nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains and has magnificant views. We were spellbound by the colors. The rooms are charming, romantic, clean, and they staff is friendly. At night they had a wine and cheese tasting/mixer, which was an added bonus to our trip. Highly recommended!!

I had high expectations for my visit and Susan and her staff exceeded all of them. The Inn is great. The grounds are beautiful. The food is wonderful. Susan and her staff make you feel right at home and take care of you like you were family. If you want to be close enough to everything, but not in the middle of it, Waynesville is the perfect location and the Yellow House is the perfect inn. Relaxing doesn't do the experience justice, but it gets the point across. They made my trip the best I've had in years and I definitely plan to return there soon.

I can't say enough about The Yellow House. I have recommended it to everyone I know and told them that I wouldn't stop talking about it until they all visited! From food to rooms to service to amenities, it is all top-notch. An absolute must if you want to be spoiled.

Desired a retreat for a relaxing weekend. Group of friends gathered in a welcoming atmosphere. Susan and staff could not have been more helpful from dinner recommendations to helping to schedule activities for the weekend. A must if you are in the Western NC area!

Lovely, airy guest rooms and charming and comfortable common areas. Afternoon wine reception was fun, nice assortment of nibbles too. Great tips on area attractions and restaurants from our innkeeper Susan and other guests.
