“What a Jewel !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Glenn and Jen Duerr are the perfect hosts! The Bed and Breakfast is a beautiful home within walking distance to Waynesville Main Rd. The rooms, the breakfasts, the Inn in general are flawless. I can only recommend a stay here!

We are an Australia couple travelling through the southern states of the US and we really enjoyed our stay at The Windover and the wonderful people we met over the breakfast table during our stay.

This was our first time in a B&B. I am glad we choose The Windover Inn. Glenn and Jen are very nice couple. They help you in everything they can. We spend a night in this B&B and we wish to stay more. We have seen several B&Bs on the tripadvisor site. However, The Windover Inn is the best. Very good job folks !

Room Tip: Any room is great.

Previous reviews are spot-on. Beautiful house, sumptuous bedding, congenial hosts, lovely breakfast room, inviting grounds with porch swing in gazebo and campfire ring, spotlessly clean, convenient location. My favorite room is The Atlantic.

My husband and I stayed in April 6 to the 12th It was such a fantastic stay. My husband works in the hotel industry and he was so impressed by Jenn and Glenn's level of service. They are always available to answer questions and assist in any way possible. They are also so knowledgeable about the area, and planned a day hike for us, complete with such detailed directions. Not only was the level of service exceptional the food was out of this world. I have gluten issues, and Jenn and Glenn were more than happy to offer me a gluten free option while my husband was able to enjoy the regular. Their scones are so fantastic, and everything is so fresh. The rooms are also perfect, very spacious and the large king size bed doesn't hurt at all. Even though Waynesville is very small there are many things to do in town. It is also only 30 mins from Ashville. We were going to stay in Asheville, but glad we decided on Waynesville. It was so quiet and a great relaxing time. There are many restaurants in Waynesville. Our favorites were Chef's table, and Leap Frog's. We already started planning on our next visit. If you want the best place to stay in Waynesville and Asheville make it the Windover Inn.

I think we have been to the Windover 5 times now. We love that the owners make us feel like family from the first "hello", to the last "good bye". Even better, Jen & Glenn remember you when you re visit their home. For those people who are fearful that they will feel as if they are intruding in on someone else's home, you need not worry. Once you check in and get the tour, you're given your room key and front door key. You won't be bothered at all unless you need help (I mean any help!!!). Jen & Glenn are there for what ever you need. Breakfast was great both days we stayed. Second day we had to leave early (breakfast is at 9) so we asked for something to go - they sent us off with muffins, bananas, egg & cheese sandwiches, orange juice, yogurt, & hot coffee! Talk'en about the royal treatment! Just Amazing how above & beyond they go. I'd say we'll be back again, but I guess you already know that from my review.

About the area that the Windover is in- there's a very active downtown area with shopping, craft and art galleries galore. Great dining options (Jen & Glenn are happy to provide suggestions!) and even a furniture gallery with a coffee/ sweet bar. Yes odd- but once you see it you'll get it...
The Biltmore estate is not far, and you can get a reduced price for admittance through the Windover. We like to check in at the Windover, then head to the biltmore by 4 pm. Get to the biltmore gatehouse at 4 but before 4:30. The approach road to the house closes at 4:30, and the house closes at 5. But once you get in, you can enjoy all the outdoor gardens until dusk, then return on day 2 using the same tickets to see inside the house. Admittance after 4 pm gets you Back in next day for free! Take a picnic dinner on the first night and find a romantic place on your own to dine. Just a great experience!
Thanks to Jen & Glenn for everything. The Windover is a Gem!

We chose this B & B in an online search for a spring break get away. We arrived rather late and needed help finding the inn so we called and Glenn directed us over the phone and he and his wife met us outside in the cold to greet us and help us carry our things to the third floor! Wow! The service, wonderful breakfasts, and cleanliness were over the top! We especially enjoyed the always available coffee. Having to leave early on our last morning, Jen and Glenn sent us on our way with a hearty and delicious bag breakfast! Next time we would choose a larger room....overall a great experience!
