“Our first B&B experience and we are hooked”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

We enjoyed our first stay at a B&B in Waynesville, NC at the Windover. We lucked out finding this beautiful home owned and operated by Jennifer and Glenn. The house and our room was lovely as was our host and hostess. We enjoyed meeting other travelers while having a delicious home cooked breakfast. The living area was cozy with games and books to read. We realized we have been missing the boat all these years by not staying in B&B 's. We highly recommend The Windover for anyone staying in Waynesville, NC.

This was our second time staying at the Windover in and what a fantastic time we had! Glenn and Jen are fantastic hosts and leave no stone unturned. The breakfasts were fabulous and the snacks were wonderful. It's a perfect combination of luxurious and homey.

This bed and breakfast was absolutely amazing. The food was amazing. The suite we stayed in was amazing. Everything was perfect in regards to the service, food, room, bed, and our in-room Jacuzzi tub.

The only blemish, if you can even call it that, on what was an amazing experience was the B&B's close proximity to the local football game.

To be fair, this is not the fault of the B&B or its owners. However, you can definitely hear the game announcer from inside the house. If this sort of thing doesn't bother you, then don't worry about it! However, if you're looking for tranquility, which was what my wife and I were looking for on this particular trip, you might want to be a bit more particular with it comes to the timing of your stay.

Please note that this is the only reason I didn't give perfect ratings on sleep quality or location. The beds are beyond comfortable and the house and grounds are absolutely beautiful. We're definitely planning on staying here again!

Room Tip: If you want absolute tranquility, try not to schedule a visit during a local football night if you c...

We've recently returned from our 7th visit to the Windover Inn. The experience has been consistently fabulous, and this stay was no different. Jen and Glenn have cracked the code on running a B&B- they have the right mix of personality, professionalism, business acumen, and charm... plus yummy breakfasts!

We highly recommend the Windover- you won't be disappointed!

Super B&B! The hosts were very friendly and attentive and very helpful with directions for getting around to great sights. Breakfasts were done beautifully by Glen (with a very stylish chef's hat!). The location was great--near downtown where we went to a Apple Harvest Festival. A special treat was sitting around a fire outdoors in the fire pit with other guests, drinking wine and getting to know each other. The house was well set up for socializing with other guests. One small problem: the internet was not always functional. Not a big deal--particularly if you are trying to get away from it all.

We stayed at Windover Inn for our 12th anniversary this weekend. It was an excellent, quiet getaway. We were greeted warmly by the Innkeepers & oriented to the Inn as well as the general area. They provided us with a map that helped us navigate. My husband is super picky about his food and he was pleased with the breakfast both mornings! Thank y'all for such a pleasant experience, we hope to visit again....

Wanted to attend the Apple Festival in Waynesville, so booked this B&B based on its reviews and they were spot on!. Great clean and cozy B&B, the owners welcome you into their house and make your stay as if you haven't left your own house. Very charming older house and very quiet and very clean. The morning breakfast both sat and sun were wonderful!!The location of the house is great, and if you are in shape and want to walk into town, its a breeze. Will stay here again! Thank you Glen and Jen.
