“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2010

We stayed at Waverly for the Valentine's Day weekend. What a wonderful inn and the experience. John and Diane make everyone feel like long lost friends! The rooms were impecable, the breakfasts were amazing. Wine and cheese and good conversation with new friends each evening. I had a special request for flowers to be placed in the room while eating breakfast, and they had the most beautiful vase of red roses sitting there when we returned. My fiancee was totally surprised. We will make this our destination for special occasions.

My wife and I stayed at the Waverly Inn on a business interview trip. The service was great and very welcoming. The owners are always very available and sociable with everyone! Breakfast was amazing every morning. Each afternoon they do a wine & cheese coctail and there's always tea's, coffee, sodas and dessert available (free) to snack on all day. The rooms were clean and warm and the bathrooms were cozy and clean. The area was experiencing an ice storm when we were there and most of the people staying were locals who were likely to lose power....the came to stay because the Waverly is on the local hospital's power grid. Any place that the locals come to stay just-in-case is great...and it seems they do it often! Great place and would recommend to anyone!

I traveled to Hendersonville for one night on business, and my family (husband and two children, 9 and 11) joined me the second night at the Waverly Inn. John and Diane were very welcoming and made me feel at home right away. The social hour was a great way to relax and get to know the owners and other guests. There were many unexpected touches in my room that made my stay special.
The Waverly Inn was also a great stay with my family on the second night. My kids loved the free soft drinks (of course :)) and the games that were available to use allowed us to continue our "family game night" tradition, even away from home. The staff was very helpful with directions and recommendations for dinner and fun things to do.
The various breakfast options meant there was something for everyone...and it was delicious!
The Waverly Inn definitely exceeded our expectations.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. We really enjoyed it. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. There are many tables in the dining room which we prefer over one large table. We were allowed to choose from a variety of fruits, cereals, eggs, omelets, and their special of the day. One morning the special was cinnamon apple pancakes--very yummy! The next day it was french toast. If we ran out of food, we were offered more.

Upon arrival we were given the opportunity to choose between the room I had originally booked and another larger room. I believe this was due only to the fact that the inn was not very full that weekend. It was a pleasant surprise and very much appreciated.

The inn is located on a busy street, and there is lots of traffic noise, however, we were not bothered by it. Foam ear plugs were supplied for those who might feel this is bothersome. Allso, we were unable to hear other guests from our room.

Downtown shopping was only a couple of blocks from the inn. We walked there one afternoon and drove another. It was difficult to find parking, so I suggest walking if possible. It was a nice walk with plenty of crosswalks along the way.

The inn supplied free softdrinks, cookies, and cake. This was great during the late evening when we wanted a snack.

The staff and innkeepers were extemely nice and always asked if there was anything we needed.

If we are ever in this area again, we will definitely stay here.

The Waverly Inn is a wonderful place to stay. It is a comfortable home away from home. Everything is designed to make the traveler feel welcome. The rooms are beautifully appointed. The breakfast is simply incredible - absolutely delicious. The evening social hour offers a nice opportunity to get acquainted with owners and guests. Yummy snacks are available 24/7. The Waverly Inn is my all time favorite bed and breakfast!

We were greeted by Diane who couldn't have been more welcoming. The inn and our room had everything we needed; they thought of every detail. Nice size real glass glasses for drinks, thick absorbent, fluffy towels, fabulous mattress gave us a great night's sleep. We walked to dinner which was a plus. Our room was on the main street but all was very quiet. Pretty breakfast dining room, friendly service and good - even healthy! - food choices.

This inn provided a wonderfully relaxing get-away. The service was excellent with personal touch. The wine and cheese evening social and other snacks available at all times were nice. Breakfast was delicious, and the servers were very attentive. Our room as quaint and comfortable, with a very comfortable mattress. The large porches on both the first and second story provided a great place to sit and relax. It was a very short walk to downtown Hendersonville, with a great selection of restaurants. Hiking at Dupont State Forest was a great side trip, and the innkeeper gave great information about this spot. We would definitely return again.
