Magical Experience

We had two great nights at Windover Inn. We found Glenn and Jen to be very accommodating hosts. The house was convenient to downtown Waynesville. The breakfasts were unique and delicious. Wonderful decor and amenities!

Wonderful place to stay!

Just a great place to relax and enjoy the mountains! Close to area attractions and a beautiful house to enjoy it all in.

Exceeded Our Expectations

We stay at B&Bs whenever possible. It was very reasonably priced and a great find. The owners, Glenn and Jen are the sweetest couple. They do everything possible to keep the guests happy. Our room was spacious and clean. We stayed for a week and the breakfasts were delicious and varied. Glenn and Jen give great advice for sightseeing and have lots of good travel brochures available. The B&B is in a good location and it takes less than 5 minutes to get to the good restaurants in town. On our last day, we had to leave early for our flight and thus were unable to stay for breakfast. Jen packed us a delicious breakfast to go which we really appreciated. We would not hesitate to stay at The Windover Inn during our next visit to the Waynesville/Asheville area. We highly recommend this B&B. You won't be disappointed.

Perfect stay!

My daughter and I stayed at the Windover Inn Saturday, April 16. She was getting her Wildrerness First Aid certifcation at the Landmark Learning Center. Our stay was perfect in every way from a snack for her when she arrived covered in fake blood from the course, chocolates in our room, soy mil for Kristina, incredible comfortable bed, and a delicious homemade breakfast. Jen even packed a special bag for me to take to Krisitna as she had to leave before breakfast. The inn is even more beautiful and welcoming that the photos. We can't wait to go back again!!!

Three years in a row

The gardens, the amazing wrap around porch, the gourmet breakfasts and our kind, very accommodating hosts made our stay a truly relaxing one. If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly book with them!

What a terrific location and super special place to stay. Glenn and Jen are a delightful couple and wonderful hosts. The breakfast was very delicious! We stayed 2 nights in the Pacific room and it was a very comfortable and pleasant get away for us.

Everything with icing on top

This is absolutely at the top of B&B's in NC. The accommodations are well above what we expected and Waynesville is definitely a great town to visit. The hosts were super nice and the delicious breakfasts were a great start to our two days there. Thanks Glenn and Jennifer for a very special 25th Anniversary.

Romantic Weekend

5 on November 23, 2014

My husband searched online and found this place for us to stay. Wow! He did a great job. He and I stayed in the Rocky Mountain Suite. It was very nice. The bed was very comfortable and the whirlpool was roomy. The breakfast each morning was good and hot. The service was great. Very interesting history with the house. I would definitely stay there again. Met some very nice people. The pictures posted on this site are the true pictures of the house. Close to downtown Waynesville. Great restaurants and shopping. Within driving distance of several sites. Glenn and Jen are wonderful hosts and are full of information about where to go and what to do. You cannot go wrong here!
