The Yellow House on Plott Creek Road is nestled between Asheville, NC and the Smoky Mountain National Park. Our 5 acre grounds are filled with ponds and gardens, pine trees and rhododendrons, and wildlife indigenous to the mountain habitat. The main house was built in 1885 as a summer residence, and can be described as neo-classical. Several improvements have been made to the original structure, including a wrap-around veranda, 3 luxury suites and a library.
Memories of the rural village of Estaing, France, inspired this two-room suite. The bedroom's natural wood queen bed, dresser, shutters and stone fireplace bring memories of a quint French village. The sitting room with its wet bar, games, comfortable furnishings and fireplace make this a great place to spend a lazy afternoon. Both rooms open to a private balcony that offers a wonderful pine-framed view of the mountains and town. At night the twinkling town lights framed by pine shadows make this one of the most romantic spots found anywhere - a delight for the senses. The view from the E'staing Suite is through huge pines to the Blue Ridge Mountains and down on the small town of Waynesville.

Like its California village namesake, this room has casual and elegant charm. White shutters cover the large bay window opening to a mountain ridge view. There is a spanish influence in the iron four poster queen bed and pottery accessories in this 'almost round' shaped room. Because of its openness and hominess it has been a real guest favorite. A view of the lane and mountain ridge can be seen from this room with its three large windows along the side of the Inn.

Dancing sunlight and happy colors of green and yellow make this room bright and cheery. The filigreed, burnished gold firescreen, white Battenburg bedding and small federalist antique desk hint of Carolina's southern elegance. The bath with its seashell appointments remind one of the coast of Carolina--from its shell-shaped lavatory to its shell patterned wallpaper. Looking from the queen bed throught the bay windows, it is possible to view a variety of Carolina foliage. On a quiet summer night, Plott Creek can be heard meandering from the mountain tops to the valley below. The bird feeders are located below the side windows of this room. Many birds and large trees and bird garden are viewable from the Carolina Room.

At night the room glows from the light of the fire in the large Carolina fieldstone fireplace. In the large bathroom with wallpaper of the vining S'conset roses, a double vanity and whirpool for two are found. The view from the bay window behind the loveseat is of our lane and the mountain ridge.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!!!

We had a wonderful stay at the Yellow House. Everything was perfect & Shawn was a wonderful host! Will definitely stay here again.
