We absolutely loved our stay at the inn. Tracey and Mike took excellent care of us! We loved the proximity to shops and eateries, and enjoyed exploring Hendersonville and Asheville during our stay. Our room was beautiful and comfortable!

Property's Favourite Review
The bed was so comfortable, and the new shower stall was beautiful and fantastic. The entire place is decorated with the most wonderful antiques, and they make sure you are taken care of. Tracy not only was such an outstanding hostess, she was so much fun to be around. I was not bored in the least. The inn is so close to everything in the historic part of Hendersonville that I had no trouble finding what I wanted or needed, but I still had a variety of things that I could do at my leisure right there at the inn. They have a great little library and a nice selection of movies and games. I didn't have to move my car at all. Tracy and Cassi went above and beyond for me. This is where I want to stay when I'm in Hendersonville. Too bad they can't be everywhere I travel. They are by far the best.

Room Tip: The Carolina Mallow was somewhat to itself, so it was nice and quiet.

We absolutely loved staying here! The inn is beautiful and clean, the food was plenty and delicious and the bed was soft and relaxing. Social hour on the front porch was wonderful! The owners are truly amazing people- friendly and more than accommodating. The location is within walking distance of some yummy restaurants, as well. We only wish we could've stayed longer!

We had such a lovely time staying at the Waverly Inn! It was peaceful and cozy and Tracy and Mike were wonderful hosts! The breakfasts were delicious and the location was ideal for walking right into downtown Hendersonville. We will definitely be staying again in the future!

Very comfortable bed and breakfast. Beautiful older home. Great wine and snack time after a day of leaf peeping and hiking (be sure to visit Dupont Forest). Owners helped with restaurants, great meals. Breakfast was fantastic. Will return!
