3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This place is a real find. We made a reservation cold and were delightfully surprised. The hosts was welcoming, gave us options on the rooms and treated us fantastically. We even met folks with a tie to my wife's family. The rooms were superior, with charm and lots of amenities. The breakfast topped everything. It was a luxurious experience to be able to walk downtown to all the stores too. If you are looking for a getaway to relax, this is the place.

On a recent whirlwind Holiday Tour of the Carolinas, we stayed one evening in Hendersonville, NC at 1898 Waverly Inn. It was beautifully decorated for the holiday season. We visited with other guests and the Inn Keepers, Mike and Tracey, at the Wine and Cheese hour in the salon on the first floor. We later retired to our room, American Holly, on the main floor. Our breakfast was wonderfully prepared. The variety of choice we had was unexpected and we all delighted in out choices! We also were very impressed at the friendliness of the staff. Each was so helpful and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We will be returning to the Inn soon!

My wife and recently visited the region for a weekend get away. We use to stay in Asheville area, but have fallen in love with the 1898 Waverly Inn and the downtown Hendersonville area. This is our 5th stay in the last 2 years and each stay gets a little better - the new owners have invested in updates and the historic home is clean and beautiful while maintaining its history. The breakfast and happy hour are excellent as well!

My husband and I got away for a few days before Christmas. We stayed at “1898 Waverly Inn.” The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas! The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating! Mike had even picked up our tickets for the Biltmore Estate, prior to our arrival! Our room was also beautifully decorated. Breakfast was amazing each morning! We got to order what we wanted for breakfast! The food was delicious! We loved how close this Inn was to the downtown...we could walk easily. We will definitely stay here again when in the area!

This establishment is exceedingly noisy all night as it is in a triangle fronted on all sides by busy roads. We had a 'queen room' that barely left enough space for us to walk around the bed. The place is not well kept and looks run down. The male innkeeper is pleasant, but the woman is exceedingly brusque and rude. Inn keeping is really NOT her fortiet!

You just cannot stay anywhere better! The Waverly is so close to downtown (Main Street). The owners, Mike & Tracey are super friendly and treat you like family. Rooms are beautiful, clean, and comfortable. They have a great Happy Hour with ample wine and beer selections. They can even get tickets to nearby attractions for convenient! You can go to Biltmore Estate without standing in those long ticket lines or Flat Rock Playhouse, etc. This is the place where memories are made!

We and our kids stayed at the Waverly Inn over Thanksgiving and had the most relaxing visit in this gorgeous, historic home. Our room with a four post queen bed (and bathroom with a claw foot tub!) was cozy and beautiful. Mike and Tracey were lovely, allowing us to feel like we are a part of their home. The social hour, Thanksgiving dinner, and breakfasts were above and beyond what I would expect at any B&B. We will definitely be returning whenever we are in the Asheville/Hendersonville area!

After reading reviews, we stayed here. This property is very tired, worn out, needing repairs, cleaning, and spraying for bugs. Don't stay without ear protection, rooms in front enjoy highway noise, those in back the regular fire & rescue sirens for the neighborhood hospital. And, don't bring your appetite, meals were lacking at best. We reserved a two night stay in Oct. and will not be returning.

I don’t typically write reviews, But my stay at the 1898 Waverly Inn was so top-notch I️ felt that it was absolutely warranted. From ensuring that my husband’s birthday was well celebrated (they helped me hang a birthday banner in our room), to a hard-working staff that went over and beyond during breakfast, to owners who to take extreme pride in ensuring that their guests are not only treated like family and comfortable during the entire stay- my husband and I would rate our experience as 10 star! The inn was spotless and cozy and we will definitely be back. I️ did not get a chance to meet Tracey, one of the owners, but Mike was a pure delight and makes this place so special. Thanks for making our one night stay awesome! We will be back!

Mom and I stayed here and was in the front corner room "Spring Beauty". Bed was super comfortable, room was clean, nice TV, bathroom was rather small but that's OK for one night. We enjoyed the wine and cheese on the front porch with other guests. The only thing was the road noise. Very busy street in front of the Inn, and there was a Friday night football game at the high school nearby which was very loud. Otherwise, once everything settled down, we got a good nights sleep. Oh, and breakfast the next morning was wonderful ! I liked that we had the option of choosing what we wanted for breakfast, another Inn I've stayed at fix only one thing and that's it. We both ordered scrambled eggs, grits, turkey bacon and toast. Hit the spot and got our day started off right !
