The inn is very traditional in its furniture and pain colors . The bed was beautiful and very comfortable. I like the modern shower and double vanity in the suite. There were homemade cookies out with tea and water. The owners were very knowledgeable about the inn and its history. The rooms were quiet and you did not hear other... More

We had the pleasure of staying here during our daughter's college graduation. Wonderful accomodations and service. One other set of graduation attendee's had ask for an early breakfast and the hosts mentioned it to us since traffic and parking can be a hassle at WCU. This was above and beyond just by letting us know and yes, we appreciated the... More

The innkeepers are pleasant, unobtrusive. Self serve coffee is appreciated. Location has some drawbacks; hard to find, near a school, not walking distance to downtown. Decor needs updating. Somewhat overpriced for amenities offered.

Just returned from our second visit, May 22nd and May 23rd. Our first visit was fall of last year. Can't say enough good things. Beautifully maintained home and grounds, immaculate rooms, great breakfasts, and peaceful quiet setting. The innkeepers go above and beyond to make you comfortable and assure a pleasant stay. If you have never stayed at a Bed... More

If you are on the fence about staying here, don't hesitate. What a fantastic experience! My wife has celiac disease, so we called ahead to see if they offered a gluten-free breakfast option. It's difficult b/c sometimes she has to eat something completely different than everyone else, which is fine. But Glenn and Jen were happy to accommodate. When we... More

This was my first bed and breakfast experiance and it turned out to be one of my best trips ever. This was a couples getaway without the kids. The inn keepers Glen and Jen were great and the breakfast was world class. Glen and Jen were very friendly and helpful but they never got in your way. The house was... More

This inn has been an in since it was built over a century ago. The current owner/innkeepers are kind, considerate and unobtrusive. They have made the art of being B&B owners into a science: gourmet breakfasts, beautiful grounds with gazebo swing seat, fantastic wrap-around porch complete with rockers to enjoy the outdoor sounds, elegantly appointed rooms, painstakingly researched printouts for...

I needed an alone-time weekend and wanted to be in/near the NC mountains. Windover ended up being exactly what I needed. This beautiful, historic inn sits atop a small hill just outside of Waynesville and is peaceful and quiet. The innkeepers are friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. The room I stayed in was huge and the bed was the most... More

On my first trip to beautiful Waynesville, North Carolina to reconnect with my high school sweetheart who I had not seen in 30 years. I decided to stay at my first bed & breakfast. Well,let me tell you I wish I would have done this long ago. There is no comparison to a hotel. The house, an old Victorian over... More
