My husband and I stayed two nights at The Herren House Bed & Breakfast the weekend of July 25, 26, and 27, 2014. After reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor, I decided to book accommodations at this bed and breakfast when visiting Waynesville for the Folkmoot Festival. A bonus was that this was also a scheduled weekend for the Murder... More

I gave my parents a 60th wedding anniversary and rented the entire Inn! Michele could not have been more accommodating! She knew the crowd would be better served since we were only staying one night by serving dinner for all. Dinner was yummy we had a chicken and a beef dish! The beef melted in your mouth! She arranged for... More

Michelle provided great service and good food, and the room was surprisingly affordable. I love the location's proximity to downtown Waynesville. I will definitely say here again. Perfect spot for an anniversary celebration.

We had a wonderful experience at the Herren House. The room was very comfortable regarding AC, bath, and bed. Michelle was very welcoming while allowing us privacy. She kept a great balance of "taking care of us" without being intrusive in any way. We also enjoyed her presentation and culinary skills for the prompt breakfast. The location of the B... More

I had my wedding at the Herren House and Michelle was impeccable! She gave us the wedding of our dreams in such a short time frame. She was able to recommend everyone we used for the wedding since I wasn't familiar to the area. The food she prepared was amazing!! Best I've ever had. Thank you Michelle for allowing us... More

Rooms were clean & spacious. Bed was big and comfortable. Location could not have been better. Within 1 block of historic downtown Waynesville. Could walk to shops & restaurants & festivals. Breakfasts were impeccable. Michelle is a terrific hostess concerned about your visit. You can not ask for a better place to stay in Waynesville. Oh, there's a huge wrap... More

My son and his fiance got married May 24th in Waynesville NC. I needed a venue for the rehearsal dinner. After much looking and researching, I chose The Herren House and boy did I get it right.

Another great stay at a really nice B&B. Michelle is a great hostess and treated us very well. My wife has some dietary restrictions and Michelle fixed a special breakfast for her. The coffee provided in the foyer area was excellent.

Met friends for lunch on Easter Sunday and were not disappointed! Delicious asparagus soup, family-style lunch of ham, roast beef with gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, yeast rolls followed by several choices of desserts...mmmm! Michelle really knows how to please with great food and service in this lovely location!
