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.

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.

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".

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.

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!
