Experience the Hospitality of the Past

1898 Waverly Inn is the oldest surviving inn in Hendersonville. This inn was built at one end of Hendersonville’s wide tree-lined streets when guests walked on boardwalks and oil lamps were at the street corners. We have been making guests feel comfortable since they arrived by train or stagecoach. But we have been quick to embrace modern conveniences! We’ve had electricity available since 1903 and telephone since 1904! Relax in the ambiance of the past with our southern rocking chair porches, in-town convenience, mountain flavor and first-class amenities at 1898 Waverly Inn.
