The Lawters
December 15, 2019
We are natives to this area but have never taken the time to be a tourist here. We wanted somewhere that felt like home, learn the history about the Waverly, and just take a night away for ourselves. The Waverly is outstanding on so many levels! From greetings from Mike the owner along with his wife Tracy. The rooms are vintage and very clean. You honestly feel at home when you walk through the doors. It is beautifully decorated and close to main street so you can walk and shop and come back. We want this to be a every December tradition we make. Please take the time to read the history on the Waverly and come by and see it!

Wonderful weekend trip
November 30, 2019
My husband and I wanted to take a mountain trip to celebrate our six month wedding anniversary. We tried to book in both Asheville and Highlands, but both were outrageously expensive due to events going on in both cities. Through internet searches, stumbled upon Hendersonville and the Waverly Inn. And I’m so glad we did! Our night at the Waverly was perfect. Mike and Tracey were wonderful hosts! Our room was on the ground floor and was small but perfect for a couple. The bed was very comfortable and the room was immaculate. It’s also right in downtown making it convenient to Hendersonville’s charming shops and restaurants. The breakfast was also fantastic! We live in Atlanta and are so happy to have discovered Hendersonville and will return every fall! Thank you Mike and Tracey for a wonderful stay!

The Inn is beautiful, and the location is perfect! We walked to restaurants every night! Our room was very cute and clean, with plenty of space. Mike and Tracey are amazing hosts, and breakfast was delicious. We can’t wait to go back again!

A fabulous time
October 31, 2019
I travelled to the 1898 Waverly Inn for a long weekend to meet my daughter, her husband, and younger children. We stayed in a two-bedroom suite that had plenty of space for the 5 of us. We all had a fabulous time. The Inn is set in great location just a few blocks from the downtown so we were easily able to walk to food, drink and entertainment. It is also only a short ride away from area activities in and around the Asheville area. Mike and Tracey, the owners of the Inn, were very hospitable from providing a delicious home-cooked breakfast every morning to mingling during the nightly happy hours. I look forward to another stay in the future.

Simply spectacular!
September 29, 2019
Our first taste of a bed and breakfast, and it could not have been any better. We were welcomed upon arrival by Mike, and taken to our third floor king room, named fire azalea. Bed was super comfy! Remodeled bathroom was so nice with amenities available. Soft drinks, water and hot beverages were always available to us. There were baked goods on the table throughout the evening as well! Such a nice touch. There are plenty of table games, books, dvds and even a jigsaw puzzle to work on. No detail is forgotten here. Social hour was delicious with a meat, fruit and cheese tray, variety of crackers, plethora of wine selections, craft beer and lemonade. Mike and Tracey greeted us on the front porch and it was such a pleasant visit! Daisy would have been fine to come out too! Breakfast made to order the next day and was so tasty! Thanks Mike! We will definitely be visiting you again. We loved every minute in your home. Thanks for such a positive experience!

Walk to Apple Fest
September 10, 2019
Charming Inn within a block from the start of the Apple Fest. Streets are blocked off for this every year and being within walking distance is key! Lovely double first and second floor porches. The Inn Keepers are super sweet and the breakfast both days was outstanding! Mike also makes a great Jalapeno popper for the happy hour with local brews.

Top Notch B&B has it all
August 30, 2019
Location, History, Charm, Comfort is what makes this B&B a top notch Inn.
The beautiful historical Victorian is located just outside the town which allows for easy walk-able access to anything in the town. The Inn has history which dates back to the 1800's & still has a wonderful charm about it as the rooms are more than ample, beds comfortable and the enjoyment of rocking chairs on the front porch to watch the world go by.
There is a social hour in the late afternoon offering a glass of wine with cheese, meat & crackers and conversation with the owners and other guests. If you get a chance to see Daisy, she is a labradoodle which is as friendly as can be that loves to be petted.
Come down in the morning hungry for breakfast as the food selections are vast.
If your looking for recommendations the owners are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
It's become our favorite Inn in Hendersonville

A lovely stay
July 6, 2019
Came here for the 4th of July. The inn is fabulous! I've been to many bed and breakfast places and none have had the breakfast selection that they have. Also, super close to downtown so you can walk there and drink without having to worry about it. Lots of cute places downtown so you'll have plenty of choices for food and drink. Will definitely return

Wonderful B&B
July 4, 2019
I found this B&B looking for a place for my wife and I to spend a few nights in the mountains. We found a winner! Mike and Tracey run an excellent establishment in the historic district. They are friendly and attentive, but not overly so. If you want conversation and recommendations for food and drink, you've got it. If not, that's fine too! Room was fairly priced and comfortable with a newly remodeled bathroom. The Inn itself is charming and tastefully decorated. Breakfast staff were friendly and attentive and the breakfasts were delicious! Highly recommended!

The King Suite was fantastic
July 2, 2019
We stayed the night before we dropped our kids off at camp. The King Suite was perfect for our family of four. Our room was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The beds were really comfortable. Excellent location, walkable to everything Hendersonville has to offer. Mike, Tracey and their beautiful dog Daisy are great and spend time getting to know their guests. The evening social was brilliant, allowing guests to mingle with each other and the owners. Breakfast was delicious. Plenty of parking. Highly recommended.

Nice stay at historic B&B at edge of downtown historic district
June 9, 2019
The Inn is in walking distance of many restaurants, shops and close to a community theater. The owners, Mike & Tracey, are very attentive to their guests and caring of the property. Our room did not have a refrigerator in it, so we used a common one on the ground floor. Originally designed as a boarding house, some guest rooms may be smaller than those in a typical B&B hotel. We spent peaceful AMs on the balconies, second floor has a common balcony that is quieter than ground floor facing a main one way street. Breakfast, cooked by Mike on weekdays, far exceeds the standard. Nicely hosted happy hour. Sufficient parking.

If only we could give 10 stars!!!

Love at first site, we drove up to the Inn mid morning and decided to stop in and see when our room would be ready. So glad we did, we walked up to a beautiful victorian with a wide and welcoming porch, opened the antique doors and were greeted by the friendliest innkeepers, Mike & Tracey, that we have ever met. Room was not ready (we didn't expect it to be that early) but we were able to get lots of info from both Mike & Tracey (and meet their adorable dog, Daisy) on downtown Hendersonville, local wineries and where to go for dinner. Tracey even made our reservation for us. Later in the day, we checked into our room, perfectly situated on 3rd floor front of the house. We loved it, very clean and comfortable! We enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the evening, meeting other guests and talking more with Mike & Tracey. Breakfast the next morning far far far exceeded our expectations. One of our favorite aspects of the Inn is that we could walk to shops and restaurants and we were not far from the wineries - we used Uber for that!
THANK YOU - Mike and Tracey - for a wonderful stay, we will be back before too long!

Exquisite
May 4, 2019
We were looking forward to our stay at Waverly Inn as one of the highlights of our trip and we weren't disappointed. It is elegant, comfortable and friendly. Mike is the perfect host, and Katie's baking at breakfast was so good that we had to ask her for the recipe! Drinks and snacks on the porch was very sociable, and we were within easy walking distance of many restaurants - with expert guidance available from Mike!

Annual get together with my mom
April 30, 2019
Wide variety of rooms. Ours was simple because we needed a walk-in shower. Lots to do in the area. Chairs on porches and inside if you just want to relax with a book or drink. Owners always available and friendly. Some kind of snack always available and extensive wine selection for afternoon snack. Excellent breakfast. As an animal lover, I loved their pup.. BBQ available once a month. Convenient to Flat Rock Playhouse. We recommend

Birthday Celebration
April 1, 2019
Our family lives in the local area and was delighted to have such a class act bed and breakfast to go to in our own backyard to celebrate my Mom's birthday. We so enjoyed the historical elegance of the inn as it was like traveling back in time but with modern conveniences. We stayed in the Mountain Laurel Room and so enjoyed the comfortable beds and light and airy sitting room. There's no better place to sit and enjoy a good cup of coffee to begin the day. Tracey and Mike were wonderful down to earth hosts that made us feel so comfortable. It was like talking to old friends. Tracey even made the birthday reservations at Brandy's. The food was amazing at Brandy's. There was no better way to end our stay than with one of Katie's delicious breakfasts. The housekeeping staff were so friendly and courteous. We will be back again next year to celebrate!!! Thanks so much for a delightful and restful visit!!!! SF

Awesome B&B
February 7, 2019
Wonderful stay in this turn of the century B&B! I had a chance to see several of the rooms during our stay, all looked wonderful and our room was cozy and comfortable. Atmosphere terrific. A must stay whether you're in Hendersonville or Asheville! Tracey and Mike Burnette are fantastic hosts!

Girl's trip
December 7, 2018
5 of us stayed here for a girl's trip that included a trip to the gorgeous Biltmore Estate. 3 of us stayed in the Mountain Magnolia Suite on the 3rd floor and the other 2 were across the hall in Fire Pink. Check in was easy, Tracey was ready for us and happily made us dinner reservations for 2 nights and switched the nights to better suit our time preferences. When you walk in the front door the first thing you saw was a gorgeous live Christmas tree. There was another one in the sitting room that smelled divine. The rooms are very nice, well decorated with nice linens and furniture. The home is old (1898, duh) so the bathrooms are not what we have in our homes but perfectly functional with plenty of hot water. Water, soda, ice and coffee are always available on the main floor. They have a social hour between 5 and 6 which we took advantage of! They have a variety of wine, beer, lemonade, cheese and crackers. It is an opportunity to meet and chat with the other guests. Breakfast was excellent! Some favorites were the granola, the daily quiche special, and the perfectly cooked bacon. A wide variety and as much as you wanted. On the 3rd floor, where our rooms were, was a sitting room loaded with games. We took it over and played Yahtzee and rummy and laughed lots. Our hosts, Tracey and Mike were very welcoming and helpful and they have the cutest dog! We left a day early because of an impending snow storm and are thrilled that we have the opportunity to return!

Innkeeper hospitality A+ and rooms as fresh and clean with old world charm. Fantastic location just steps off Main Street with shopping, restaurants and pubs nearby and a short walk. Breakfast is cooked to order with local offerings and premium options for sides. Beer, wine, coffee and cookies during the day and evening. Will certainly be back

20th anniversary
October 8, 2018
Great place. Friendly owners. We stayed in the Silverbell room, which I recommend for a romantic stay at an old lovely BnB. You get wine and cheese during social hour and a cooked to order breakfast with your stay. Top notch in every aspect. Short walk to all the Main Street restaurants and shops.

Love this B&B
September 15, 2018
This was such a sweet find. We absolutely loved our stay. We stayed in the Wild Geranium room, which was located just at the top of some steps, but convenient and quiet. The bathroom was nice and had a lovely oversized claw foot tub. The location of this B&B was fantastic. It simple stroll to downtown. We loved the atmosphere and plan on coming back soon.

Most accommodating hosts
August 5, 2018
The 1898 Waverly Inn suited our group of five women very well. The innkeepers were pleasant, attentive and helpful in every regard. This is a well-run establishment serving a good breakfast with adequate choices and an evening happy hour with wine and cheese. The porches and parlors were comfortable for lounging, reading, chatting.

My husband and I took an overnight trip and decided to try a B&B instead of our usual hotel. We fell in love with the charm of this place. Mike and Tracey are the innkeepers. They are the epitome of customer service! I felt like we were staying with family. The social hour at 5 PM was wonderful, sitting on the front porch and chatting with other guests. Breakfast the next day was the best homemade breakfast I have ever had. We will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this gem to everyone.
