“We will definitely return!”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

My husband and I just returned from an overnight stay at the inn. We will definitely return. We had a wonderful stay. The breakfast was phenomenal and so filling. The room was so quiet, cozy, and romantic. The Inn is beautifully decorated. It exudes warmth. You feel at home from the time you step foot on the splendid front porch. I highly recommend!

My daughter and I wanted to see the Biltmore and also go hiking. The Windover Inn is in the perfect location. The Blue Ridge is close, Waynesville is a charming town and the Biltmore is not far away. This is a lovely Inn and the owners make you feel special. There's brewed coffee waiting for you every morning at the Coffee/tea/hot chocolate bar. Homemade cookies, crackers and licorice are always there to temp and spoil you. The Inn is absolutely lovely and decorated with period furnishings. The breakfast is the best you will ever eat and every morning there is something new to look forward to. The Atlantic room was spacious with a comfortable King size bed. I loved the sitting area by the dining room. We played scrabble and cards at the game table. There's a piano for those that play. I would stay again and highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: The Inn has 3 floors. We chose the Atlantic Room on the second floor and we liked it very much.

My mom and I just returned from a trip to NC and we stayed at the Windover Inn. We stayed in the Atlantic room and loved it. The room was spacious and had a comfortable king sized bed. The house itself is charming. Homemade cookies and crackers downstairs were delicous and we enjoyed the board games downstairs in the common area too. The owners Glenn and Jenn were fabulous and very attentive and helpful. Glenn gave us some excellent maps, directions, and ideas for nearby activities. The breakfast every morning was amazing and more food than we could eat! After noticing how much I enjoyed choc chip cookies Jenn decided to make choc chip scones as a part of breakfast one day. We loved downtown Waynesville and actually preferred it to Asheville. I am so happy we chose the Windover Inn, it was a great place to stay and not too far from Asheville or the Biltmore.

We traveled to Waynesville for the wedding of our friends. Glen and Jen were so welcoming and we had such a fantastic stay. There were four of us (two couples). We had the Pacific Suite and the Caribbean Room. The breakfasts were yummy, the rooms were spotless and the beds were SO comfortable! On Saturday we all had breakfast and retreated back to our rooms to decide our next steps (a drive to check out the town etc.) but all of us ended up taking a nap! It was such a relaxing and restful atmosphere. We would certainly stay again if we traveled to Waynesville! The town was adorable as well and we had a couple of good meals. Very much enjoyed the Dog Bakery in town so check it out if you are a dog lover :) Certainly visit Glen and Jen, you won't be sorry!

Beautiful B&B in the lovely town of Waynesville. Smokey Mtn. Room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. A sanctuary to rest & re-connect. Bed was comfortable; bathroom well-appointed; jacuzzi nice. Loved the big front porch and gazebo swing. Breakfast big and delicious brought to our room. Innkeepers were very kind & helpful. Loved it here and want to go back soon!

A beautifully restored Victorian home on manicured grounds -- a lovely experience! The breakfast was the best I've had in any B&B, with excellent organic coffee, juice, just-baked muffins, granola with fruit and yogurt, frittata with fresh tomato salsa and country ham. The restoration is authentic, with period furniture, colors and fabrics. Absolutely delightful! Sadly, the pool that is featured on the web site is not available for guests, but otherwise the web site is very accurate. We hope to return for a visit this Fall. Enjoy!

windoverinn, Owner at The Windover Inn Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, 16 August 2011
We really appreciate our guests taking the time to submit reviews for our property, and take their feedback seriously. Although we don't picture or mention the pool on our website (we do have 5 rooms with whirlpool tubs which may be the information the reviewer is recalling), we certainly do understand that once guests arrive and see the pool, they may be disappointed that the pool is not available to them (an explanation is on our Welcome Letter). Put in by previous owners as a family pool, (our grandchildren do enjoy it), it only meets private, residential code guidelines and would require costly renovations to bring it up to public use requirements necessary for guest use.

We hope this information helps, and thank you again to all of our reviewers!
