About

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.

Biltmore Christmas visit

5 on December 17, 2014

Great experience and hospitality!


Very nice experience

4.0 on December 03, 2014

The owner Shawn is pretty nice and helpful. The room, breakfast, environment and the other guests are all very satisfied. One of the best travelling experience.


Awesome Bed & Breakfast

5 on December 03, 2014

The Yellow House has been one of the best experiences for a weekend getaway. Our room was spotless!!!! Shawn and his staff went out of their way to make us feel special but also comfortable enough to make ourselves at home. The breakfast they serve is something from an upscale restaurant and if your tastes are not exactly what they are serving they will cook you something different. I can not wait to go back and visit!!!


Really really wonderful!

The Yellow House is a classic, pretty, Southern B and B, with great facilities and amenities and AMAZING customer service. Shawn and his team make you feel welcome at every point -- from the early emails and phone conversations, to check in, to daily yummy southern breakfasts, to wine and cheese at 5 pm, to check out. The rooms are spacious, clean, and nice, Mine had a fireplace and a tub with jets. And you will never go hungry with the myriad snacks in the main house. Stay here for sure. You will be glad you did!


Always perfect!

I have stayed at the Yellow House numerous times over the last five years because of the lovely accommodations, outstanding service, location, and charm of the place. There are few inns or bed & breakfasts I have enjoyed so much! Thank you for your gracious hospitality.


Best place I have ever stayed

Have to stay it's a must stay if you are ever in the North Carolina area one of the best places, best experiences I've ever had¿¿¿¿


Like staying with family

5 on November 03, 2014

First of all we were blown away by how it's set up. It's like your wealthy uncle has given you the keys to his country home and has basically told you to make yourself at home. There were snacks, some homemade cookies, and of course Port wine at our leisure. The main house is pretty neat if you enjoy history and socializing with other guests, if you enjoy privacy then perhaps stay in the windward room as it has a private balcony overlooking one of the ponds. The other guests were a joy to talk with especially during a world class breakfast. My wife and I were 100% satisfied and will stay here again. Great place and very helpful and friendly staff! We are recommending it to all we know!


Friendly B&B

We had a fabulous stay at the Yellow House. Shawn, Connie and the staff were so nice and the breakfasts every morning were fantastic!


Perfect stay in every way

4.8 on October 31, 2014

We had almost given up on B and B and decided to start staying in hotels after a disappointing stay at another property at the start of our trip. However, the last was the best and this place renewed our love for Bed and Breakfasts. The Winwardside room was beautiful. We loved the porch, the fireplace and the snacks in the room. Shawn the innkeeper was the best-so friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were fantastic. The inn is in a good location-away from downtown but close to drive to. It is a spectacular view setting when you drive up to it and see it. I highly recommend it. Do not miss this place if you are in the area.


Great getaway!

4.6 on October 31, 2014

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. It was awesome! Our room was very clean, the breakfast was good, the staff was friendly and our room had a jacuzzi. If that wasn't enough there was also free snacks and drinks! We really had a good stay and would love to comeback on our 1st anniversary. I would recommend it as a great quiet getaway.

E'staing

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.

Monticeto

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.

Carolina

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.

S'conset

The S'conset Suite is named for a village of tiny rose-covered cottages on the east shore of Nantucket. The suite has crisp white walls and fresh blue accents that remind one of a seaside cottage. Located on the first floor, this roomy suite has rich oak floors and a majestic dark cherry king four-poster bed made up with white Battenburg. 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.

A French Provencal atmosphere is achieved with warm, sun-baked ceramic tile floors, lace window treatments, and green plantings. The wood-beamed ceiling and stucco walls are typical of cottages in the foothills of the French Southern Alps. Guests enjoy the king-size bed, wet bar with decorative tile, and two-sided fireplace. French doors open to a private terrace where one can look over the garden to the lily pond and out to the nearby mountains. The antique iron daybed accommodates an additional guest and encourages a quiet afternoon nap.
