“A Cherished Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Warm, welcoming innkeeper Shell met us at the car and served as our very personable bellman. We met Deb in the kitchen later and thoroughly enjoyed conversation and delicious cookies and special breakfasts served with a flair. This historic home built 1898-1900 is beautifully preserved with the utmost care, is impeccably clean, fresh, attractive, and comfortable. Sitting rooms on the first and second floors are available to guests. Loved the ample number of large footstools everywhere for relaxing. The front porch and wicker rockers were a favorite spot for overlooking Waynesville and the mountains. Soaps and lotion for guests are locally made. Routine turn down service nightly is a special touch. The work of local artists is tastefully displayed throughout. Our two nights stay was a last minute change of plans for us but a definite experience to repeat when traveling that route in the future. Thank you, Shell and Deb, for great memories!

This was a lovely Inn run by two gracious people. The room and bed were so comfortable and all the details were there. There was a very nice TV room just across the hall. Breakfasts were fantastic. They even gave us 2 freshly baked muffins as we went out the door for our days activities. This is also probably the cleanest BB we have ever stayed in. Just across the street is the Old Stone Inn Restaurant which is where we dined one evening and really enjoyed it. You can walk over to it from Oak Hill.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked very comfy and it is in a quiet location.

Deb and Shell have a wonderful Bed and Breakfast with the perfect combination of elegance and a warm comfortable atmosphere. The food was plentiful and amazing. The bedrooms are beautiful and inviting. The house was filled with exquisite furniture and beautiful artwork from local artists. Shell provides great bellhop and doorman services. Turn down and housekeeping is better than any hotel, and any reservations you need, they will handle. Deb and Shell are a true pleasure. I have learned that staying at bed and breakfasts for business trips makes work much better. Oak Hill is one of the best B&B's in which I have stayed.

Oak Hill is a picture-perfect location to celebrate birthdays. The welcome was warm and inviting, the rooms impeccable and the breakfast delectable. Deb and Shell are amazing hosts who do everything possible to make the stay comfortable and easy. The Inn is a destination in itself.
Certainly merits a repeat.

My husband and I stayed at Oak Hill several years ago when the doors first opened! It was such an amazing and memorable experience, that 4 1/2 years, 2 kids, and many sleepless nights later we were thrilled to be able to go back! What a TREAT!!! The food is amazing! The rooms are beautiful and tranquil! Best of all, the service is top-notch! This is one place you don't want to miss. One night with Deb and Shell and you will never want to go back to a regular hotel again!! K&J Greensboro

Room Tip: They are all fantastic!

Deb and Shell are fantastic hosts, and their service is out of this world. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it makes us not want to stay at a hotel again! We were greeted by Shell who showed us around this beautiful house. All rooms are very spacious with their own private bathrooms. The beds are amazing, all tempur-pedic with high thread count sheets...we couldn't have asked for a better nights sleep! Deb is a FANTASTIC cook. The multi-course breakfast was the best we have ever had. Deb also prepares snacks for throughout the day that are so delicious! Oak Hill is within minutes to downtown Waynesville and it is easily accessible to Asheville. There are also a ton of hiking trails nearby. Definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for top notch service and a unique experience. We will definitely be back!

Want to get away from the impersonal ambiance of a hotel stay? A bd and breakfast may just the ticket. My wife and I stayed at the Oak Hill B&B for several days a couple of weeks ago and I can truly say, it was one of the most pleasant times we have ever experienced during our travels. The host and hostess were absolutely wonderful, attending to all details and promoting a warm, homey experience not seen in any of our hotel stays. The highlight was gathering around the breakfast table, meeting new people from all areas of the states who have also found their way to the Oak Hill B&B and all having been there before. We made some new friends and listened to their experiences during their travels and listening to what brought them to the Oak Hill B&B as well. I absolutely recommend this wonderful getaway to anyone seeking a peaceful, friendly, and elegant retreat. Once you experience the Oak Hill B&B, you too will be returning over and over. Many thanks to the host and hostess, Shell and Deb Isenberg. We look forward to our next meeting!!!!!!
