This was our third visit to Oak Hill, and we are already looking forward to our next! We thoroughly enjoyed the new patio and fire pit additions this year, and enjoyed a great visit around the fire with the owners and other guests after dinner one evening. One of my favorite things about Oak Hill is the quietness of the house at night. I always sleep so well when there.
Jeffrey and Breanna were very delightful and helful hosts. From the pictures, you would assume that the lodge was located more in the mountains vs the residential neighborhood where it is located. There was only one location that provided you a view of the mountains which was the main porch. I was disappointed that each room doesn't provide you the opportunity to set the temperature as all of the rooms operate off of one main control. Although the room I stayed in was rustic, nice, and clean, the beds and pillows were a different story; being very uncomfortable! One of the best part of my stay was the fabulous breakfast. You couldn't ask for a better home cooked breakfast with the best biscuit gravy I have ever had since I moved to the south.
Exceptional hosts, very friendly and warm couple. Darlene is a Great cook, and we walked into the house that had an aroma from the homemade cupcakes. Delicious breakfasts on both mornings. Great additional treats at the butlers station. Crispy clean room. Organic soap and lotion. It felt like a spa.
We were lucky to get a room because this place is very popular. Jeffrey was very accommodating and served an excellent breakfast. The room was clean and the bed was good. We had a restful night and an excellent time at the apple festival.
This past weekend was our third visit to this B&B. It just keeps getting better and better. So clean and welcoming, great service, correctly priced, the best breakfast within 100 miles! Dina and Carolyn know how to host guests and what their guests are looking for in a B& B. The back porch and its evening sunset was the clincher! We'll be back!
Not fancy but very clean and an outstanding value. Located in a residential neighborhood, it is over 100 years old with aqua-colored bathroom fixtures and knotty pine paneled guestroom. Breakfast is the real deal .... a full country breakfast, complete with grits, biscuits and sawmill gravy. The innkeepers live on the property and are young, friendly, engaging folks.
We had a very enjoyable, relaxing time at the Grandview Lodge, I would recommend this B&B, great venue. The innkeepers Jeff and Breanna were so nice and helpful on what was in the area to enjoy. What I great place!
Lee and I were guest at Oak Hill on Love Lane B &B and wanted to let everyone know how much we enjoyed staying there. Darlene and Tony are exceptional Inn keepers taking care to address all needs of their guests in an elegant and pleasant way. Our room was very pretty, clean and was equipped with the best bedding, linens, toiletries, ladies dressing table with lighted mirror, hair dryer and bottled water. The breakfast was outstanding and served on beautiful table and China. Darlene gave each guest a bag with muffins to be shared together by couple in their own unique sitting and emailed back to her. Tony helped with our luggage and recommendations on restaurants. Lee and I loved sitting on their front porch and time spend by the fire pit seeing the view of downtown and mountains. We plan to return again next summer. The restaurant they recommended was outstanding. So glad we made this trip to Oak Hill on Love Lane. Lee and Terry
Darlene and Tony are just getting started in the B&B business. They sure are on the right track. The were great and the house is great also. It really makes a difference when people love what they do. We had a great stay last weekend and look forward to coming back.
A beautiful house, large lovely rooms and amazing gourmet breakfasts! Top this off with two of the best hosts, Darlene and Tony Blankenship, ensuring your comfort and you have the recipe for an absolutely wonderful vacation! Thank you for Making our stay in Waynesville perfect!
We stayed here just for one night. We wished we had booked two. Breakfast was amazing. The lobby was fun and interesting and its location was nice. Close to everything but very quiet.....and dark, great for star gazing. We plan to come again someday
Peaceful with a old fashion sitting inside and out. Owners was very friendly and helpful and would come talk to all their guest just to see how things are going or just to chat. Breakfast was good and could eat that bacon everyday. Great weekend stay overall
The grounds and home are amazing! The hospitality and food are wonderful! We totally enjoyed the visit! Lots to do close by--shopping, restaurants, hikes! We loved the charming room and adjoining bathroom with claw foot tub! The breakfast was wonderful! We would love to return soon!
If you are looking for one of the most beautiful BnBs in the Smokies/Blue Ridge, and for fantastic and amazing service, hard to beat River Dance. Callie and Dave are just the tip of the iceberg, but they certainly are the most amazing hosts you could ever imagine. The House is at the top of ridge, and the views are forever. The rooms are amazing, as is the company. The real bonus is how cool Hot Springs and the rest of Madison County is. Super interesting, particularly since I know nothing at all about it. You would be hard pressed to find a better experience. River Dance was an exceptional experience.
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.
Rustic rooms,quiet,clean and restful. Breakfast was great, eggs, omlettes, bacon, fresh mushrooms, grits, juice, coffee, biscuits and gravy and a very friendly owner and staff. Within a half hour of Asheville - had a great time!
I found the Grandview Lodge and the wonderful innkeepers while looking for a last-minute place to stay for a reunion with friends as I live 2 hours away and those I knew who lived locally all had 'something' going on that would have resulted in my staying with them to have been an inconvenience. Boy am I thankful that so many people have busy lives and I had the privilege to stay at Grandview! Rates were very competitive, the location was still an easy drive from the Asheville area, the room was comfortable and impeccably clean, I had a delicious breakfast, and best of all Jeffrey and Breanna were first class hosts. I cannot say enough good things about the Grandview Lodge and would encourage you to stay here for a true touch of Southern hospitality instead of in a generic hotel with mediocre surroundings!
To our surprise, and pleasure, this B&B was quite the find! The inn keepers make you feel right at home (friendly and comfortable- not over bearing), extremely helpful with all suggestions and spot-on with directions on how to get there. The rooms are spacious and impeccably clean. The outside patio is a little piece of heaven with their manicured grounds and heavenly view of the mountains. Give yourself a pampered treat and stay at this lovely inn!! My husband and I only stay at B&Bs, and this one was a favorite. Oops...can't forget Dina's yummy breakfasts...bring your appetite!
Far exceeded our expectation. Beautiful house,grounds exceptionally well kept. Breakfast was a highlight of our days at the House. Gourmet food,service and attention to client's needs was outstanding. Would highly recommend to our friends and family and all others that want a wonderful stay in Waynesville. Bob and Rose Clager
Hosts were fantastic! Very helpful with excursions in the area (Midnight Hole, Foothills Parkway and overlooks, local family restaurant...) Each breakfast was varied, extraordinarily delicious, fresh, and healthy. Janice went out of her way to source in-season fruit and any of our requests. Horses roaming the farm were gorgeous and friendly as we're the hosts' dogs... well-behaved but you did have to watch your step through the grassy areas outside the cabins! Our cabin had ants in the kitchenette sink and counter and the cabin had cobwebs. Our hosts quickly attended to those problems. When we requested to add one extra day to our stay we were offered a different cabin which would be available all of the days we requested. We questioned whether this other cabin had connected rooms and were told that our rooms would be adjoining. We had expected that meant there would be a door allowing us to access each other's room. We were mistaken. Fortunately, it was not a big deal for our family as our children are adults but if our children had been younger that distinction would have made a big difference.
We've been here twice and will definitely return again and again. We've stayed in two different rooms, both were beautiful and comfortable.The house is spacious inside with a parlor that is cozy in the winter. And it has an expansive porch for sitting outside in warm weather. Shawn, the innkeeper, is the perfect host, and will make you feel instantly at home. It's a very easy drive to Waynesville for shopping, dining and events.The town rivals other popular mountain destinations with several great restaurants, craft brewery and an excellent variety of shops, including Mast General, a Christmas shop, kitchen shop and even furniture from Bali. The Yellow House is convenient to the BRP and lots of hiking options. And you can get to Asheville in about 30 minutes.
Our stay was most enjoyable--the house itself, the food, and the friendly staff. Also, Shawn gave good advice on what to see, how to get there, etc. We have already recommended the house to others and plan to return, maybe in the fall.
