We recently stayed here for a couple of days. Saw a few less than stellar reviews here, but we were very happy. The owners were super nice and accommodating, and the room was extremely cozy and comfortable. Easy walking to the very cool downtown area. Nice Happy Hour and outstanding breakfasts. Would stay here again in a North Carolina minute!

This was my family's third trip to the 1898 Waverly Inn and we are in love with the friendly familiar faces and comfortable accommodations. We had a wonderful time chatting with other guests and listening to some lovely piano tunes in the parlor area. The night we stayed my husband and I received a couples massage and throughly enjoyed our...

This B&B changed hands a year or so ago and the new owner is still learning the ropes. This was the third time we had stayed here and it has slipped a bit. The rooms are starting to show their age, especially the mattresses and the breakfasts are nothing special anymore. The wine offered in the evening is budget wine...

We regret we didn't meet your expectations during your visit. The vast majority of our guests rave about our mattresses and their quality of sleep at 1898 Waverly. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent breakfast and would love to hear what areas didn't meet your approval. The wine brands are the same as what's been served at the Waverly...

The room was modest and the age of the ol' girl shows. Typical small bathrooms from a place of this era, etc. But, staff were wonderful, everything was fine, the price was very good and you are steps from downtown Main street. It was great and homey for our purposes...delightful visit.

Great Inn with plush rooms. Quiet and friendly. Only one drawback was the traffic noise on the porch made it hard for conversation during the wine and cheese happy hour. Breakfast was outstanding with many local sourced foods and creative approach.

Lovely older B&B with comfort and charm. MIKE was a great host that takes care of all your needs. Wine and snacks on the porch was outstanding with getting to know more guests. YOU'LL love breakfast with locally sourced produce with great presentation.

This is an old boarding house and the rooms are beautifully furnished. Inn keepers were very friendly, knowledgeable and accessible. We have stayed in B&B's where you rarely saw the innkeepers, not so here. Easy walking distance to a wonderful downtown with many restaurants. The bed was so comfy! All the amenities that you could ask for. Social hour on...

We stayed at the Waverly Inn 25 years ago while taking our girls to camp. We are now house hunting near Hendersonville so we took a trip down memory lane and stayed here again.

We had stayed here one time before and enjoyed. The new owners are very down to earth and interesting to spend time with.
