Yellow House On Plott Creek

89 Oakview Drive , Waynesville, NC 28786 USA (Show map)


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.

We had such a wonderful stay! The rooms and house are beautiful, quiet, and comfortable. Ken and Kelli are absolutely fantastic hosts, so incredibly friendly and so welcoming. And the breakfasts...oh my goodness. They're out of this world! We will definitely be back on another trip!!

Our stay here was fantastic! The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was absolutely delicious both mornings and the service was phenomenal. Ken and Kelli are some of the most hospitable people you'll ever meet, and it shows in every detail of your stay! They have snacks and drinks available in the butler's pantry 24/7, a wine and cheese tray are set out each evening, and they've even stocked each room's fridge with complimentary water, soda, and juice. The grounds were lovely to walk around and explore, even in winter. I can't imagine how gorgeous it will be when spring and summer come :-) You're close to Asheville, but even downtown Waynesville is a dream to visit! Lovely shops, antique stores, delicious restaurants; and we even saw a movie in the old theater they're renovating. It was one of the most relaxing and fun vacations my husband and I have taken, and we will DEFINITELY be back again! :-)

A beautiful Property surrounded by a beautiful landscape.

This was a spur of the moment trip when my boyfriend and I realized we had some time off before our next project. We also had a Bed and Breakfast Gift Card we were trying to use so when we searched only Inns that accepted these cards were is what we were looking for. We booked the Kinsale Suite which is on the far end of the pond house which is located across a pond from the main house. We could park at our door and unload easily. The room was amazing and clean. Right outside our back door was a mtn brook that fed the ponds. Behind the pond was a beautiful mtn landscape. We are outdoorsy so we used the All Trails App and found trails with amazing views very close by. It's February so most places are closed. We went into Smokey Mtn Nat. Park during the day and at night we drank wine in front of the fire and soaked in the tub. Oh and the tub is deep but the hot water stays hot long enough to fill the huge soaking tub. We enjoyed meeting the other guest at breakfast and also enjoyed our privacy when we needed it. The new owners are very helpful and welcoming. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Great Value!

We found this little gem while searching for a place to stay while touring the Asheville area. It was easy to get to and very conveniently located. The new owners are still learning the ropes, but are truly delightful and were very accommodating when we had a very late arrival. We will certainly be staying here again in the future!

A FANTASTIC B & B and Innkeepers

Innkeeper Ken took great care of his visitors while we were all there, a two night stay. Beautiful B & B, one that we will stay at again in the near future.

New owners, another great visit!

We have been visiting The Yellow House since our honeymoon in 2010. We were surprised to meet the new owners at our recent visit and it was nice to see they are transitioning nicely! We were blessed with early December snow for our visit. Ken and Kelly prepared a wonderful lasagna dinner for the guests so everyone stayed safe and were fed. Fortunately, they were able to enjoy their own anniversary with their children. The updates to the inn were refreshing and we look forward to many more visits! Shawn and staff will be missed, but their passion to provide a place of peace and relaxation carries on.

Ken and Kelly are wonderful hosts. They made us feel so special with our stay (room, service, food, etc), that when we checked out, we had made two wonderful new friends!

Great stay!

Always enjoy our time at the Yellow House...close to Waynesville and great to meet the new owner Ken. We will be back!

Stay at Yellow House

4.0 on November 05, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Yellow House. The Inn was tastefully decorated and cozy. The Innkeeper, Ken, was especially considerate of our needs. The breakfasts were great and the social hour at night provided an opportunity to meet other guests. The only drawback was that only one suite has a television.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words and we thoroughly enjoyed having you with us! I tried to accommodate with moving rooms to the tv room as soon as I found out, we have since posted that on our booking site so that you will always be aware and yo don't end up in a room you dont want. Thank You for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you soon!! Thanks, Ken
