A great "in season" value at $70 is at the Head of the Main Street. Stroll downhill a block to Blue Ridge Books & Cafe with free WiFi. Another block brings you to the Mast General Store in the center of this turn of the century small town with 2 story brick and stone buildings. The Inn gets a great breeze, views the mountains, and is a block from Bogarts Steak House Restaurant. I have stayed at this motel over the years both in winter and summer and find its location unbeatable if as I am a walker liking to cover the town on foot. The rooms are very clean with tiled baths and forceful hot water showers certain to ease sore muscles at the close of a relaxed serene day. The center courtyard has an elevated sitting area covered by three huge silver oaks making for pleasant visiting with other guests to review the days activities and exchange experiences of the area. The husband and wife owners are honest, committed, and competent hosts wishing their guests a pleasant experience. Lots of local information is provided in a rustic anteroom with a fireplace and coffee and pastry in the morning. Of course the owners residents are a wealth of information about the area. For instance, they were able to refer me to Earl's auto repair for my VW A/C that had failed. This is the best value in town. There are Bed and Breakfasts but they are priced up in the $125 to $150 range. Waynesville offers easy access to Asheville on I-40 in one direction and Smokey National Park in the other. S.R. 276 south (a block away) heads up to the Blue Ridge Parkway and on south to the waterfalls of the Brevard area. The Oak Park Inn is a very comfortable experience in the walking center of the town of Waynesville.
