“Brunch to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is a beautifully decorated bed and breakfast with the best brunch in town! My husband and I frequent as often as possible. Today was fabulous, raspberry topped pancakes and quiche with salad and fruit. Michelle is a great chef and innkeeper. We just love going for a visit! You really must go in for a visit when you are in the Waynesville area. The rooms are just lovely, too. You can walk around town and enjoy the local sights and shops. Gorgeous mountain views and gardens to enjoy your morning coffe.

I was recently in the Waynesville/ Cldye area working on a small television production, and were in need of a catering company. One of my co-workers found the Herren house and a Michelle, the lovely owner and cook could not have been more of a delight to deal with. The food was always fresh, organic, on time and delicious. I usually would not know what time I would need the food until 18 hours away, and Michelle was always super accommodating and made my life so easy not having to think twice about food, or a grumpy crew complaining about food. In fact after our last day of having Herren House catering, the crew kept complaining how we would have to go back to eating crummy food elsewhere. We also had the pleasure of dining once in the garden, and once in the main dining room. The atmosphere was relaxing and a great experience. I would highly recommend eating at the Herren house... having the Herren house cater a local event and I would have loved to stay at the Herren house and certainly will, next time I am in the area.

Really enjoyed my time at Herren House. The rooms and common spaces were beautiful and spotless. The breakfast was fabulous, a full compliment of vegetarian quiche,fresh fruit and assorted muffins and breads. Michelle was a fun and gracious hostess. Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Call Michele and describe your needs. However, the website does a great job.

My husband and I just spent the weekend at the Herren House Bed & Breakfast in Waynesville, NC.

It is truly comfortable in all the ways one hopes as he/she travels. Coffee and wine and other beverages and snacks available 24/7 and included in cost; clean rooms and bathrooms with cozy and perfect beds; delicious breakfasts served punctually; convenient to downtown (never had to get in our car . . . ); etc . . .

Additionally, the Herren House is beautiful and welcoming. Michelle has created warmth in that quaint and non-ostentatious, but elegant, way. Her gardens beckon and cheery little conversation spaces abound on the porch, in the yard, inside the home . . .

And best of all, Michelle (the owner and "Queen of Everything") is delightfully personable, humorous, and helpful. She was constantly giving us tips for best places to eat or visit or shop (as we desired) or offering us a glass of wine in the garden, etc . . . And what a cook! She delivered scrumptious breakfasts and in that non-flurried, calm and pleasant way.

We would LOVE to go back!

The Herren House B & B is conveniently located one block off the main street of Waynesville. A brief walk takes you everywhere you would want to go to shop or eat. Bridget's Bistro offers the most wonderful breakfast, made-to-order and gourmet. Sunday brunch is more than delicious. Michelle and Phil are wonderful hosts. Time spent in the gazebo garden is relaxing and allows the stress of life to melt away in the beauty of the surroundings. My husband and I spent our 5 year anniversary at the Herren House and were more than delighted. Being a bubble bath girl, I was entranced with the claw foot tub where I could soak and relax.

My wife and I didn't stay there, but went for breakfast on Sunday. We had delicious omelets. The only down-side would be that it wasn't served with fresh fruit. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely go back.
