“One of our favorite weekend getaways!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The rooms are well appointed, clean, and very comfortable. The Owners are delightful and we enjoy the evening wine and cheese gathering. Its within walking distance of downtown and most of the dining options. Breakfast at the Inn is always a treat, they always have the basics and then something special. This weekend in particular we enjoyed multigrain pancakes with fresh blueberries.

We had a fantastic time at the Waverly Inn. The service was great, breakfast was good, rooms were cozy. Restaurants are walking distance and were all great, Umi and Mezzaluna to be exact. Also, got a couples message that was very relaxing. Overall awesome time and would stay again.

Just returned from a "girlfriend" weekend and had a wonderful stay. The Inn was beautiful and our room clean. The room we had reserved was a "special" room (dog friendly), which wasn't necessarily what we wanted but the other available rooms were either not what we wanted (located on 3rd floor which in hind sight we should have taken) or price wasn't what we wanted. The owner very kindly upgraded us when we arrived to a main floor room (without an upgraded cost) and we were excited. It was a lovely room, very spacious. However, if you are use to total darkness and deafening quietness (as I am in the country), you might want to get a room near the back. The food was more than delicious and having such a large choice was almost too much for this food-a-holic to handle. I would recommend this Inn but as others said, being so close to town is a curse and blessing. Would also suggest to the owner to be more cautious of the language, not everyone enjoys, nor uses, the "salty" words. All in all, a wonderful stay, owner very friendly and helpful and would stay again (upstairs and in the back).

Darla and John took absolutly amazing care of us. There wasn't too much you could ask for. The Waverly Inn attracts amazing people. Our favorite part was the cocktail hour which turned into great conversation in a gorgeous setting on the front porch of the beautiful historic home. Definately can't forget to mention the freshly baked cookies everyday and the fresh cakes. They truly know how to entertain.

Our stay was lovely, for these reasons:

- Round the clock tea, coffee, snacks
- afternoon cake
- great breakfast, with options for varying diets
- pleasant and helpful staff
- very welcoming
- cocktail hour at 5pm, a great way to mingle
- lovely bath with bath oils
- cute, tiny, non shedding dog with no bark

Will definitely come back...a great stay!

My husband and I stayed here for a short respite over the holidays and couldn't have been more pleased. As has been stated before, the Inn is a short walk from the downtown area with shops and a variety of restaurant types. Having spent some time in Japan, I was doubtful when Diane recommended a nearby sushi restaurant but was very pleasantly surprised. The hospitality, both people and non-stop tea, coffee, cookies and cake were excellent. I am sure that we will be returning.

First timers at a B&B and loved it. Great location, rooms comfy with top notch hospitality and service. Guests were return visitors which made our breakfast and social hours enjoyable. A must do again for us!
