“The Queen amongst Inn Keepers...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Michelle creates a very homey & comforting atmosphere, lightly seasoned with British humor and culture. Her rooms are very spacious, attractive & cozy; and her food is divine! We look forward to more visits there...

Comfortable and cozy inn within walking distance of downtown Waynesville. Great breakfasts both mornings. Attractive decor throughout; convenient late arrival process. Coffee and cold beverages available 24/7. Loved the "British" theme complete with the Michelle's accent!

Room Tip: Upper floors better choice with regard to noise.

Michelle is always so gracious. The food, room and atmosphere is very relaxing. We'll be back!This was our second visit, and it was every bit as good as the first. Michelle fixes excellent different dishes and always has something new on the menu. I love it there.

The town of Waynesville NC is guaint & eclectic. The Herren House serves a wonderful breakfast to it's guests with many cozy spaces to rest or read. Michelle offers many suggestions for alternative meals & every restaurant is great. The town was still decorated for the holidays in mid-January. I can't wait to go back when the flowers are in bloom. If you have to fly into Charlotte NC, I recommend renting a car there and driving the hour or so to Waynesville. The flight from Charlotte is often held up by connecting flights. The short drive into Asheville NC is beautiful. The Biltmore Mansion, gardens & winery is worth the $45 entrance fee. I will seeit again the next time. Everyone was very nice & hospitable. Maxine - Annapolis MD

This was out first trip to a bed and breakfast and it was amazing! We are so ready to go back! The innkeeper, Michelle, is the sweetest person and right away, you feel like you have known her forever. And she calls everyone by their name, which makes you feel so special! The room and bathroom were clean and the breakfast was delicious, as were the homemade cookies! The inn was conveniently located within walking distance of downtown Waynesville, which is the cutest little town and great shops! I highly recommend taking a trip to the Herren House.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mary Lou room and it was perfect with a comfortable bed and a nice window above the...

Some friends of my wife and mine had there wedding reception there. It was first rate, from the food at the reception, the dancing after to the room we stayed in. I worked and managed hotels for over 28 years and this is one of the cleanest rooms I have stayed in or inspected (bad habit of mine, my wife hates it) for that matter. Michelle her Family and staff were more than hospitible. The only bad to say about the stay is that it was for only 1night. Mintz, J

My boyfriend took our first trip to a bed and breakfast to Herren House and it was everything I expected and more. Michelle and family made us feel so at home, breakfast was great, Waynesville is a really cute town. Its close to Asheville so we were able to spend a whole day there. The Herren House was extremely clean, warm and homey. Fantastic views - we'll have to go back to see it in the fall / spring and summer!!
