Everyone we dealt with there was very nice. Upon check in I was told that the inn was about 66% occupied, and yet they gave us a small, dark, poorly decorated room in the back of the first floor, by the back stairs. The bathroom was nice, except for the 1/2 size sink - annoying. Their website bragged about their...

My wife and I thouroughly enjoyed our stay on the 3rd floor of the building. Mike and team were very accommodating. We wish we didn't have to pack up so early and leave before breakfast on the day of departure. We'll be back!!

1898 Waverly Inn is a lovely old mansion that is full of character and conveniently located just one block from the wonderful Hendersonville downtown. It has 15 or so bedrooms located on three floors. Everything is decorated beautifully, and there are guest conveniences such as two libraries / sitting areas filled with books and games. There are snacks available during...

Thanks for your review and hope you'll be back soon! For light sleepers, we do suggest a room away from Main St. Ear plugs are available at the front desk. Bathrooms do vary, so be sure to let us know your preferences and we can find the right room for you as well.

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at the 1898 Waverly Inn. The owners were extremely friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable of things to do in the area. The house is comfortable and charming and the daily breakfast was delicious! We would definitely stay here again if we return to the area!

This was our second stay at the 1898 Waverly Inn. Since our last stay, the inn is under new ownership. A very nice, friendly and outgoing young couple. Consistent with both stays, the inn is impeccably clean and well maintained. On our first visit, we stayed on the 3rd floor, this visit we stayed on the second. The third floor...

Thanks for your feedback! We will take into consideration your comments regarding a quiet time. Breakfast includes a special each and every day as most bed and breakfasts offer and we also provide staples (eggs, grits, fruit, oatmeal, toast, etc.) for breakfast purists. We are one of few b&b's that offer up a menu to choose from. If you are...

We were greeted by possibly the friendliest staff we have ever encountered. Immediately made us feel at home and within a few moments we felt like extended family. The room was immaculate with a very comfortable four post bed. The old world feel is very apparent from the library to the lounge and the wonderful ornate woodwork. After a very...

Stayed one night on the way to Florida. Old house with great history and provenance Owners are a young couple who are enthusiastic about their property and town. Price was in the same range as a chain hotel/motel so we took a chance. Right in the middle of town. Short walk to restaurant that evening. They made breakfast early for...
