“Grand ol' Mansion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2009

The ONLY criticism I have of this place is that the bathroom (at least the one I had) was little tight. The room I had (one the first floor) was HUGE.

I read some of the other reviews and felt that I needed to come to the defense of the owners. Yes the Property is located on a busy street. I LIKE this (how many hotels are located right down town?) This is GOOD. It was a safe and pleasant walk to the center of town with some very cool shops.

The innkeepers were fun and laid back very talkative and informative.
I LIKED this place! I have stayed at many a Bed & Breakfast and this place is among the better ones. Some have been stuffy. Some one never sees the owner, some have gross "antique" (read used furniture) . This place was not like that and was plain old FUN.

The property itself is a little in need of TLC, but Not RUN DOWN. It is a beautiful example of a large southern home in the Asheville, NC area. (They are 1/2 hour away)

I will absolutely stay there anytime I am in or near Hendersonville.

Our first stay at Waverly Inn was wonderful. We were warmly welcomed by the innsitters, Jim and Carol, and while we were sorry not to have seen John and Debbie, we experienced exceptional hospitality. Relaxing with a complimentary glass of wine and snacks of wine and cheese in the parlor after we settled in, we learned that most of the guests were frequent returning guests, and we could see why. The Waverly Inn has everything you could need. When we returned from a casual dinner at Hannah Flanagan's, a pub just a couple blocks walk down Main Street, we even enjoyed slices of homemade cake which was sitting out for us to help ourselves.Our room was on the second floor and was quiet and comfortable. In the morning we were served a bountiful breakfast, which we ordered from a nice selection. Besides eggs, grits and breakfast meats, there was even a special French Toast offered that morning. While we were eating, Debbie, an assistant innkeeper, made the rounds of the tables, visiting with everyone, and giving us maps and directions for our journey. In all, we'd highly recommend Waverly Inn for warm hospitality, delicious food and great location.

We chose to stay at the Waverly Inn after reading a stellar review in an NC travel guide. We were not disappointed! The Waverly Inn is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts and staff were so kind and saw to our every need. We definitely felt pampered. Our room was charming and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in away from home. Every morning we were treated to a delicious made-to-order full breakfast. The pace is leisurely and relaxing - definitely what we were looking for. We'll be back!

We spent the Valentine's weekend at the Waverly Inn and it was wonderful. Very Very Romantic...Fresh flowers in our room with chocolates and pastries. The Valentine social hour was great. A harpist played Romantic Music that was very relaxing...
The food was delicious.

For almost 20 years we have enjoyed trips to the Waverly once or twice a year and we have never had a bad experience. We always attend one of the outstanding plays at nearby Flat Rock Playhouse and dine at one of several outstanding restaurants in Hendersonville. The innkeepers (John, Diane and Darla) are very accommodating to help with reservations, play tickets and have interesting stories and information about local lore. The Inn is not fancy but clean, well kept, comfortable, convenient and steeped in homey atmosphere. Guests are treated like family and old friends and are free to enjoy privacy or mingle with other guest as they desire. John's breakfasts are real feasts and worth the trip. For a leisurely, pleasant few days, you can't go wrong choosing The Waverly.
