“Wonderful Inn in Historic Hendersonville, NC”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Our weekend at the 1898 Waverly Inn was in every way enjoyable, friendly and relaxing. From the hospitable staff, friendly and accommodating owners, wonderful spa and massage therapists, great sleeping beds, DELICIOUS and bountiful breakfasts ... every expectation was exceeded! I can't say enough good things about our stay at the Waverly! We felt we were overnight guests of friends in an old plantation home.

Room Tip: Our room, Silverbell Tree, had wonderful afternoon sun which was great in low temps. Hot summer days...

We did the girls weekend package and absolutely loved it! My favorite was the breakfast...especially the multigrain pancakes with fruit. Beds were comfortable, staff was friendly, and they made you feel at home and welcome. Walking distance to Main Street. Close driving distance to biltmore. It's a different experience than normal everyday hotels or condos. Loved it!!!

Really enjoyed our stay over a Friday and Saturday night. The Inn is very nice, the owners hospitable and accommodating. In the evening they had a nice little spread of wines and snacks that we were able to share while talking with other guests. The breakfast was delicious and they had several choices, from oatmeal, to gourmet pancakes and omelets. The location was great and at the end of main st., and was an easy walk to several decent restaurants.

They are about 20 minutes to Biltmore, 45 minutes to Greenville, and 30 minutes to Chimney Rock. Definitely worth a weekend.

Room Tip: Bring a sound machine, we slept at the front of the house on the street side and without my sound ma...

We stayed here on a trip to Chimney Rock. The Inn is beautiful and our pet friendly room was cozy and comfortable. Darla and Diane are such gracious hosts and we enjoyed having wine, cheese and crackers with them in the evening. The breakfast is wonderful and they make sure your coffee cup is always full. We are already looking forward to our next trip to the 1898 Waverly. P.S. Dudley is our traveling companion border collie.

Room Tip: The pet friendly room is on the first floor and has an exit to the outside right out of your door...

The breakfast was awesome. Yummy pancakes. The bed and room was very nice. Friendly and helpful staff. Liked the social hour with food. Very close to main downtown strip. Spa on site. We had a couples massage that was wonderful. We went to Chimney Rock, about 30 minutes away. Very nice, kid and pet friendly place to go. Planning on going again during apple festival.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Waverly Inn. The well-kept inn rooms & sitting areas, incredible hearty breakfast, afternoon drinks and homemade pies & cookies, and the extensive package deals offered on the Inn's website made our Thanksgiving weekend stay an especially enjoyable value & get-a-way. The town of Hendersonville has so much to offer, from several streets full of unique restaurants and boutique shops, to a well maintained and lively town center, to the surrounding expanse of hiking and adventure opportunities. We have traveled to many small towns where a lot of the down town shops are closed and the area has only a few features that keeps it alive. That is not the case in Hendersonville. It is alive and well, and simply an enjoyable place to visit with a good number of local ongoing events to fill your trip.

My husband and I are considering a move to western NC, so we booked a couple of nights at the 1898 Waverly Inn because of its location, close to downtown Hendersonville. We couldn't have been move pleased with our choice. The inn is absolutely adorable with each room seeming to have its own ambience. Our room on the second floor (Mountain Laurel) had a small sun porch in addition to a very adequate bedroom and bathroom. Everything we wanted was available, even a rubber ducky for the bathtub.

Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Happy Hour in the evening was very enjoyable. A number of residents came into the living room for a glass of wine, some cheese, and a chat. We found out a lot about the environs just from listening to conversation. There is always coffee and tea available as well as cake and cookies. There is even a microwave with popcorn to pop. A small fridge can hold a leftover from a restaurant meal.

The location was excellent, just a short walk from Main St and its cute shops and restaurants. Parking was readily available. Access to highways was very easy.

The innkeepers, Diane and Darla, were very generous with their time and energy. It's obvious that they know how to run an inn and how to keep the customers happy. Everyone on the staff was cheery and helpful.

We highly recommend the 1898 Waverly Inn and plan to stay there again during our next visit.

Room Tip: The stairs are a bit steep, so if you don't like climbing, choose a room on the first or second...
