My wife and I traveled to Waynesville this past weekend for our anniversary. We chose to stay at the Andon-Reid based primarily on the reviews here on Tripadvisor. We arrived with great anticipation and left with complete satisfaction. Follow the directions on the Website and they'll lead you to the inn easily. Parking and the main entrance is located in the back of the house. If you drive big vehicle (like my Toyota Tundra), take it slow pulling around the house because it's a little tight.
Our host, Ron greeted us in the parking lot. He gave us the grand tour and even helped carry our bags to the room.
Where to begin?
The room- We stayed in the White Sulpher Suite. It was amazing. Very spacious, with a private enclosed deck. A sitting area, with fridge/sink in the room. A large bath, complete with shower and whirlpool tub. The bed was queen sized, incredibly comfortable with a wide range of pillows and soft sheets. The room was spotless! There was an A/C unit in the window, or you could open the windows to let the cool mountain air inside. I would definitely choose this room again.
Amenities- The Andon-Reid offers lots of extras to make your stay more pleasant. Outside, there is a fire pit where you can sit and relax to enjoy the evening. In the common room, there are M&Ms, trail mix, water/sodas for refreshment. The lower level housed the game/fitness room. I've stayed at several B&B's over the years, and none have had a room like this. There was a TV with a collection of DVDs, pool table, dart board, steam sauna, table shuffleboard, free weights, and a variety of exercise equipment.
Service- Ron and his staff did a fabulous job. From small to large, no detail seemed to be missed. They were eager to answer questions, offer suggestions on places to shop/eat, and honestly wanted to know what they could've done to make our experience better.
Breakfast- It was fabulous. There were two sittin areas, one in the common room and the other in the dining room. Each day consisted of a three course meal- Day 1- strawberries/bananas, followed by a vegetable quiche with toast and chipped ham/gravy/eggs, followed by a decadent chocolate pie for breakfast. Day 2- Oranges/ followed by sausage links and a melt in your mouth apple dish, wrapped up with a delicious coconut souffle. You will not leave the table hungry. You will probably want to skip lunch as well.
If you're interested, the Andon-Reid website provides a wealth of information about the inn, all of which is very representative of what you'll get. We got to meet several other couples during our stay, and they had the same feelings that we did about their trip.
If you're headed to Waynesville and are looking for a B&B, then you'll certainly want to check out the Andon-Reid.
