Great Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on July 14, 2017

Oak Hill is a great place for a little get-away. A nice location for a quiet, small-town feel, hosts that go out of their way to make you feel at home, and a unique historic home make this a great B&B for anyone.


Another lovely weekend

5 on March 27, 2017

The mountains of western North Carolina are a glorious reflection of Nature's grandeur regardless the season of the year. Innkeepers, Darlene and Tony, have created a welcoming cocoon of creature comforts that is the perfect foil to such expansive beauty. Oak Hill on Love Lane is not to be missed. Linda R. Atlanta


Best birthday weekend ever !!!

5 on March 02, 2017

This place is amazing and I had the best birthday here !! Tony and Darlene are the absolute best innkeepers. My fiancé and I had gotten the flu a day before we were originally supposed to visit oak hill but Darlene was so accommodating and rescheduled our stay for another weekend without any hesitation!! They did everything from scheduling our dinner reservations to helping us find the perfect hiking spot along the parkway!! Truly exceptional service and hospitality and I can not wait to go back!! Also, Darlene is an amazing cook!! Breakfast each morning was sooooo yummy !! Thanks again Tony and Darlene for an awesome and relaxing weekend !!!!!:)


Oak Hill: always a pleasure

5 on March 02, 2017

This past weekend was our 2nd stay at Oak Hill. The house and grounds are wonderful, with a new outdoor firepit built with local stone and local expertise. However the real difference among B&Bs is the innkeepers. Tony and Darlene do all they can to make your stay the best time possible, and they clearly enjoy doing it. We now consider Oak Hill to be our "basecamp" for exploring Waynesville and the east side of the Smokies. If you are new to B&Bs, have no qualms about starting with Oak Hill. If you have stayed at B&Bs before you'll see why Oak Hill is top notch.


Amazing B&B for a perfect anniversary getaway

5 on February 27, 2017

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and this B&B was the perfect place to reconnected and have some much needed R&R. The owners (Tony & Darlene& were UNBELIEVABLY FANTASTIC! They made us reservations, had great recommendations for places to visit and things to see. The room was huge and incredibly clean, the food and snacks were wonderful, and the view and location to town were great. We can’t wait to plan our next visit back to Oak Hill.


Great B & B

4.0 on January 30, 2017

We stayed at Oak Hill Thur. Jan. 26 for my husband's birthday. Everything about this place is outstanding. Darlene and Tony must have gone to B & B school because they were excellent hosts. This B & B is beautiful, clean,and located close to town. We liked having the coffee available 24 hrs., enjoyed the fireplace, and view, and had a delicious breakfast. Tony and Darlene are friendly and VERY helpful, recommending restaurants and even making reservations. We would definitely stay there again.!


Weekend Escape

5 on January 19, 2017

This lovely, historical B & B located in the mountains of western NC is delightful in every way. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the morning meals and afternoon treats delicious and the hosts eager and able to cater to the wishes of their guests. The magnificent wraparound porch has a great view of the surrounding mountains and it is but a short walk to the charming downtown of Waynesville. Our weekend here was the perfect getaway.

FANTASTIC GETAWAY!

5 on November 27, 2016

Oak Hill on Love Lane is a fantastic B and B! It is truly a hidden treasure and we will be going back again and again! The owners Darlene and Tony are great and treat you like family. The breakfast is superb every morning and presented so personal. Our other favorite were the late afternoon/evening treats that were always so plentiful....the brownie mint cupcakes are over the top :) The home is so quaint and homey....absolutely love this place and looking forward to going back in early spring. Oak Hill on Love Lane will be our tradition every fall. Everyone that stays here will leave with the feeling of wanting to return as soon as possible. ~Tex & Ann


50th Wedding Aniversary

We had a lovely stay with Friends and enjoyed the atmosphere with warm iced brownies on a cool November Day. The Blankenship's were very cordial and offered to help with luggage. They also suggested several Dining and Shopping locations which we enjoyed.
