“A Beautiful, Unpretentious B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2004

Spent my anniversary weekend (5/14) at the Yellow House in Waynesville. The drive beyond Asheville (about 40 minutes) is 99.9% interstate but is just gorgeous; as you move west the road winds so close to the mountains you feel like you can almost reach out and touch them. The house is located about 2 miles from downtown Waynesville, and about a half mile from Laurel Ridge Country Club--for those who like to golf. My husband and I stayed in "Windward," one of the newer rooms (added on to the main house) and we were very pleased with the whole experience. This place will appeal to those who like going places that are upscale without being pretentious. The Yellow House was built in the 1880's but has been rennovated and/or added onto by several generations of owners and has obviously been well cared-for. The current owners, Steve, a solar engineer and Donna, a self-described "recovering attorney," have only been there about six weeks but run the place like seasoned veterans. We felt very relaxed and welcome there. The rooms are all very clean and tastefully decorated. I especially liked some of the antiques in the common areas in the main house. I saw no TV's (yea!!). Instead, there is a well-stocked library where guests may borrow books to read. A butler's pantry in the main house is always stocked with "munchies." Bottled water and juice are available in the in-room fridge at n/c. Wine and light appetizers were served on the porch about 6 p.m. It was very pleasant spend part of the evening on the house's big, sunny front porch with a glass of wine chatting with the owners and other guests. Each morning, a friendly staff delivered a gourmet breakfast to our room (complete with fresh cut flowers) and my husband and I ate it while lounging on our balcony overlooking a small pond. The grounds are pretty and well-groomed without being overdone and there is a double swing down at the pond where you can sit and relax.If you get bored with relaxing, a notebook in each room is helpful for find all kinds of area activities from tubing to university performances, with specific directions to each. It also has descriptions and directions to local area restaurants.While shopping in downtown Waynesville, picturesque little mountain town with a couple of bookstores and lots of little art galleries, my husband remarked that Waynesville might well become the next Blowing Rock.
