Recent guest reviews

The 1898 Waverly Inn is our kind of place -- historic, comfortable, extremely gracious and helpful hosts, nice amenities.......It was only an overnight for us, but we would return -- though we'd probably ask for a different room. In addition to the most thoughtful hosts we've encountered in our travels, we were sent on our way following an outstanding and delicious breakfast.

My sisters in law and I stayed their for the Ladies' Weekend. I had been there before and knew the place to be lovely, the food delicious, and the Inn Keepers, Mike and Tracey to be excellent hosts. This weekend was delightful! By the end of the first social hour on Friday night we had made friends of all the ladies in the group. The dinner that night was absolutely wonderful, as were both breakfasts! I particularly enjoyed the bacon and cheddar cheese quiche. We visited a cider mill where we enjoyed a tasting, and two wineries. We also visited a large antique shop. The weekend package was an excellent value, and we are looking forward to repeating the package next year. This weekend was the 4th time I've stayed at the 1898 Waverly, and I've never been disappointed. The owners, Mike and Tracey are very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They are both very knowledgeable of the area and of Hendersonville itself.

My stay at the Waverly was a remarkably warm experience during a rainy February weekend. Mike and Tracy were extremely gracious host. We arrived late in the evening but they rolled out the red carpet. They extended the social hour welcoming us with libations, appetizers and good conversation. The charm of the Waverly goes beyond the rustic decor it’s intrenched in the quintessential atmosphere. We were able to stroll to historic Main Street only minutes away with restaurants and shops galore. The comfortable spacious well decorated rooms allowed for a restful night’s sleep. Staying at the 1898 Waverly is a wonderful escape to a quaint time gone by.

Best Bed and Breakfast Ever! Amazing food and wine! Hendersonville has so much to do. The owners are so attentive to make your experience perfect. Everything is within walking distance. Perfect ambiance.

We had our annual company meeting at Waverly Inn and it was perfect for our group. The common areas were great for our breakout sessions; the breakfast was delicious and the staff was attentive and accomodating. It's an old house with character, but we were comfortable. A hotel woul dnever have given us the personal treatment we got here.

This place is wonderful. The best thing I can say about it is that it is exactly as advertised online. No sugar coating anything to try an make it appear better. They have no need to do so or hide anything. Well kept. Very clean and the breakfast alone is dare I say it....the best breakfast I’ve ever had. Period! It is owned by a married couple. I unfortunately didn’t get to meet the wife but Mike was so nice and helpful to us. Thank you for a great stay Mike! We shall return one day.

I just recently visited the Waverly Inn for a weekend (1st time) and I would highly recommend this to anyone heading to the Hendersonville area. I parked my car Friday night upon arrival and never moved until Sunday. The location is easily within walking distance to all the local shops and several breweries. The breakfast is literally to die for, as well as the caramel mimosa! Mile & Tracey are wonderful innkeepers, and extremely hospitable during our stay. I can't wait to return to the Waverly!

Wr have stayed at the 1898 Waverly on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed our stay. Most recently, we stayed in the Wild Geranium. The room was clean, with nice linens, and very comfortable. Mike is an excellent innkeeper and helped us with restaurant suggestions. The breakfast was delicious as well as the cake that is always available. We will be back!

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!
