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.

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.


Excellent weekend away

This was a last minute run away weekend for us. Yellow house was a comfortable and enjoyable B&B , friendly hosts and a great group of guests to share breakfast with


Welcomed and Pampered

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel as if we were visiting a friends home. The main house was amazingly beautiful although we chose to stay in the Pond house and boy were we glad. We had a two story suite with two fireplaces, whirlpool tub, and a scrumptious king sized bed. Top it all off with a gourmet breakfast served in our room and we were in a bit of heaven. Would definitely stay again.


Awesome B&B

We have been staying at the Yellow House for several years, and we enjoy our stay very much. It is beautiful and Shawn makes your stay a wonderful experience. Shawn is the Yellow House. The breakfast is wonderful. Shawn and the girls do a great job. The rooms are so clean and so pretty. We always enjoy our stay at the Yellow House and our time we spend talking with Shawn.


Wonderful Stay

Easy access to the towns we wanted to visit and close to the Parkway. Shawn and staff took very good care of us. Breakfasts were great and the weather was very cooperative.


2d visit confirmed the first

4.8 on July 31, 2017

We were smitten from the driveway the first time we visited. House is stately and marvelously situated, enhanced by lovely gardens. Were that a façade to a hovel, I'd come back just to chat with Shawn and devour his breakfasts. The house is old, has creaks and personality. The upstairs porch is perfect for doing nothing -- could use a scrub. The rooms are very well-appointed and thought out. Shawn clearly relishes being an exceptional host, all the while insuring guests have privacy. We look forward to future visits.


Sean is the best!!

5 on July 22, 2017

We had originally booked the A yellow house for 3 nights but we loved Sean so much we ended staying for 7 days. The breakfast was fenomenal. He was super helpful with suggestions of where to go and how to get there. This house reminded me of staying at my grandparents house. Sean makes you feel like family. Will definitely stay here again!


We Love the Yellow House!!!

5 on July 22, 2017

There are so many things we love about visiting the Yellow House Inn B&B. To start with, the Innkeeper, Shawn Bresnahan, is the quintessential host. Shawn has a way of making you feel welcome the moment you set foot in the house. It's as though it's "your house" while you are there. The rooms are very comfortable and serene, with music playing throughout the house that you can either choose to have on in your room, or shut off. We personally loved waking up to it each morning. Shawn's breakfasts are the bomb! You will definitely feel spoiled and won't want to go home:-) We can't wait to go back!!!


A-Rate. The best in hospitality.

5 on July 06, 2017

Innkeeper Shawn is simply the best there is. He is entertaining, very personable and extremely knowledgeable of the surrounding area and attractions. He is also an amazing chef, and you WILL NOT leave hungry! My husband & I wish we could visit the Yellow House more often and will definitely be back!


1st time was the charm; so was the 2d time!

5 on July 05, 2017

Returning to the Yellow House during a different season was a great idea. We got the suite with porch on the 2d floor, spent most of our visit to Waynesville up there reading -- and sipping a little wine . . . Could be a breakfast-only venue. Breakfast is superb. Shawn is The Best. Funny, knowledgeable, anticipating guests' needs. The house IS old. The history is interesting. The location is paradise. Looking forward to visit #3 -- probably winter this time?

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.

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.

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.
