This is a stunning home on a lovely street in Hendersonville. You'll get lost in the maze, but the wonderful innkeepers are incredibly helpful in getting you to your room. What a wonderful couple who owns this enormous place....they go out of their way to make you feel welcome and are so friendly and kind.
So, why didn't I give it 5 stars? Our room was a bit run down. The furnishings are a bit heavy for my taste, a mixture of this and that from all over the world and too many family photos everywhere. It was more like staying at a rich eccentric aunt's house than a lovingly restored inn filled with glorious antiques. The Inn has evolved into quite the wedding venue, and it is, in my humble opinion, more perfect for that sort of event. They have a lovely garden area and are able to accommodate a large number of guests.
Cleanliness is not up to par; there were a few stray hairs in the bathroom and the water would not get hot. It was a chilly evening and taking a lukewarm bath was not fun. They were so kind that I didn't want to bother them and it was late when I took a bath, so just felt uncomfortable with the bathroom situation. The sink had a crack in it, some of the fixtures were worn....it's showing its age and needs a more thorough cleaning.
Breakfast was wonderful, served in a lovely room, but there was talk overheard about an upcoming wedding and I just got the feeling, once again, that inn guests were not their first priority.
If you're looking for a gorgeous inn in Hendersonville in which to have a wedding, this is indeed the spot....it's magnificent and I'm very certain that the innkeepers will do everything they can to make sure it's a memorable day for you.
