“inn at iris meadows, very nice innkeepers”
Reviewed July 5, 2005

This is regarding The Inn at Iris Meadows, a bed and breakfast in Waynesville, NC - this is a beautiful, huge, old, but beautifully restored, house on a hill overlooking Waynesville, NC. we visit waynesville often and walk a lot. we found this gorgeous house, built by a civil war officer after the war. on our last visit, it was an open for business bed and breakfast inn. the innkeepers, mr. and mrs. fain, saw us looking at the house and very graciously offered to show us around. each room was full of fine appointments and the tiled bathrooms with big hot tubs just have to be seen. it has a huge front porch and a veranda type porch upstairs with a very comfortable swing that overlooks the hills in the distance. we did not stay at the inn yet, but mr. and mrs. fain were so thoughtful and gracious to us and took a lot of time to show us around their inn. they were also very knowledgable about the town and goings on, and told us about another inn and restaurant we could go for dinner. very nice experience.

After spending time at the Inn at Iris Meadows, I can hardly wait for a return visit. Charming luxury best describes the feeling I experienced during our stay. The inn itself is beautifully furnished and the rooms are so spacious, but that's just part of the appeal. The bathrooms are amazing and some as large as a Manhatten apartment.

Every room in the inn has a unique quality and ambience. The innkeepers (Becky & George Fain) were gracious enough to show us the entire inn once rooms were available for viewing as guests departed. The inside is certainly magnificent, however, a description of the inn must include mention of the inviting wrap around porch. Rockers, wicker with cushions, a swing, numerous areas to sit and have a cup of coffee with some freshly baked cookies, muffins, or sweet breads provided by the innkeepers.

Speaking of the innkeepers, you will immediately bond with Becky and George as they are so warm and gracious. You feel at home enjoying intelligent conversation as they are both bright and personable. It's like staying with good friends.

The inn is situated within walking distance of quaint downtown Waynesville. Asheville is less than 30 minutes from the inn and offers an array of activities. We toured the Biltmore Estate and shopped and ate in downtown Asheville while we were there. We also dined in Waynesville and were very pleased with the experience. You can venture in different directions as the inn is also not far from Tennessee. Of course, the Blue Ridge Parkway is certainly a good choice for a relaxing ride with splendid views of the mountains and valleys. There is something for everyone within driving distance of this location. We even visited a llama ranch during our stay.

Oh, animals. I forgot to mention that we saw a fox who has a den nearby and we believe some pups. The inn also has an area that is dog friendly for guests who just can't bear to leave their pets at home. Other guests won't even know the pet is there.

No matter what your interests, you can't go wrong choosing the Inn at Iris Meadows. It was just "a little piece of heaven" tucked away in the wonderful mountains of North Carolina.
