“Accolades from Alumni”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Last September a small group of alumni from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (Class of 1959) met in Hendersonville, NC. Each 12-18 months we had been rotating hosting responsibility and it was my turn. My experience at the Waverly B&B led me to make it the first option for our visitors.All of the couples stayed at the Waverly and raved about it. Its location a block from downtown, its fabulous breakfast menu, the graciousness of their hosts, the comfort of the accommodations all contributed to the success of the reunion. I was extremely pleased to take credit for having made such an intelligent choice!

We loved our stay at 1898 Waverly Inn. The B&B is very clean, and the staff is kind and helpful. The location is great, easy to access and just a couple blocks from the charming restaurants in downtown Hendersonville. Wonderful breakfast! We loved the big, front porch on the 2nd floor. We had it all to ourselves during the entire stay. A great place for a mug of hot chocolate and a good book.

Room Tip: All rooms have A/C window units, which I think has something to do with being a historical building...

This is the first time I've stayed at Waverly Inn but hope it won't be the last! From start to finish, it was entirely enjoyable. Spacious, comfortable room with access to upstairs porch and rocking chairs; plenty of parking; within walking distance to Main Street shops; excellent breakfasts with a nice variety of daily specials. Most important: friendly, helpful innkeepers and staff!

We stayed at the Waverly after taking a small wine tasting tour in the Hendersonville area. Luckily, we got back in time for social hour on the front porch. The atmosphere is so very welcoming. We had the opportunity to meet other guests, speak with the owners (very charming folks) and enjoyed getting to know a little about the B&B and about the other guests.

As opposed to a hotel, the rooms here are cozy, comfortable and make you feel more like you are lounging at home. The furnishings, atmosphere, toiletries, bath, etc. are first rate and you are also within easy walking distance of most of the local attractions.

We slept like babies (wish our bed was that comfy) and the breakfast was ..... Phenomenal ! This is true Southern style not only in the incredibly masterful cooking but also the nature of all the staff and sitting to eat with the other guests. It feels comfortable and you will want to return.

By the way, if you walk away from their breakfast hungry then that is your own fault. They offer as much food as you can handle and such a variety. We will be coming back here as soon as we can!!

Room Tip: If you want a really large room to spread out and feel like you have a small apartment, try the Moun...

We had a great stay here. It's located within walking distance of a surprisingly vibrant downtown area that is beautiful. It's also within 2 blocks of a brewery, so drink all you want. The breakfasts are amazing. You can fill up on french toast or blueberry pancakes as well as eggs, granola, oatmeal, bacon--just about anything you want. They do a happy hour from 5-6 every day with wine and cheese. This is our kind of B&B.

Room Tip: The rooms in the front of the house are a little noisy. The road noise did not bother us, but if it...

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Waverly Inn. The Inn never disappoints. Diane and Darla are always welcoming and gracious! The breakfasts are fresh and delicious and the wine&cheese reception in the evenings is a great way to meet other guests. We have stayed in 3 different rooms and Flame Azalea is our favorite so far. Hendersonvile has so much to offer. Check the Waverly website for links to local attractions. We did Navitat adventure just above Asheville and it was amazing! I highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor are private, but the stairs upstairs are lengthy.

The inn is a phenomenal place to stay. You can park your car and walk downtown to the many shops and restaurants, or just stay at the inn and be indulged. The made-to-order breakfasts are delicious, the rooms are so clean and the beds comfortable, and the innkeepers and staff are so friendly! If you are looking for a place to go with a friend, family, or by yourself, the 1898 Waverly Inn will NOT disappoint!
