“Pleasant, comfortable and an overall feeling of home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the Molly room which was a good choice. Waynesville is a small town in the mountains, enjoyed a short walk from bed and breakfast to Main Street for shopping, ate at the sweet onion restaurant which I highly recommend. Bed and breakfast was clean, relaxing, and had a great breakfast. Wish we would have taken advantage of the murder mystery dinner theater but we were to tired after our day at the biltmore estate. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

The inn is nicely decorated and very quiet. Within walking distance of quaint, downtown Waynesville, NC. Lots of "artsy" shops to visit and plenty of excellent resturants. Michelle, our gracious innkeeper, made us feel welcome and comfortable. Check-in/check-out process was easy and efficient. Yummy breakfasts both mornings of our stay. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Handicap assessible room is huge! All rooms nicely decorated. Check them all out on-line.

We enjoyed our stay at the Herren House with Michelle and especially the Murder Mystery dinner. We met some wonderful people and had a great meal. Michelle was so hospitable and entertaining. We plan on making another trip in the future.

Room Tip: The Bowman room had 2 twins beds together which gave us a king size. It was comfortable too. I bet t...

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
