This was our third stay at the Windover and we just booked a fourth visit. This is our favorite place to stay when visiting Ashville and surrounding areas. Each time we stay we discover new things to do. This time we drove up to Hot Springs and did some hiking on the Appalachian Trail and enjoyed the hot springs, had... More

Just finished a weekend visit here w/ my sister. We loved the experience. Glenn and Jen are consummate hosts -great food - wonderful accommodations - had some rain and the front porch was the perfect place to have a cup of tea and watch the rain. Hard to leave - wish I could do this every weekend.

Wonderful setting, wonderful food, wonderful hosts! Combines the beauty and character of an old home with the modern conveniences of air conditioning and Wifi! The breakfasts were superb! Our first time in a B & B--will probably have trouble finding another one so perfect! We don't vacation often, but would be so glad to come here again!

I give this B&B a 5 star. The owners take care of every wish and whim! Nothing could be improved on. They are completely accommodating. My favorite things to enjoy: the awesome breakfasts, beautiful appointed rooms with antique accents, the breezy porches and landscaped gardens.

A very well-run B&B with thoughtful amenities at every step, from coffee outside the bedrooms to a wonderful breakfast. They have local menus, good information about things to do in the area and are wonderful hosts. The property and gardens are beautiful. While it's very close to "downtown" Waynesville, the surrounding neighborhood isn't very strollable. I highly recommend it and

The Windover Inn is a delightful place to stay when visiting Waynesville. The property is beautiful and the room and common areas are very welcoming and beautifully appointed. Glenn and Jen prepare a delightful breakfast and are very helpful in recommending restaurants or helping with tour recommendations. We would definitely return again to the Windover Inn.

Glenn and Jen Duerr, Innkeepers, couldn't be more gracious and accommodating. We fell in love with the top floor room that formerly had a skylight. (We didn't miss it.) All the rooms are lovely, but we never use hot tubs, so this was a perfect fit for us. YUMMY, homemade cookies and crackers available downstairs and on your bed, as... More
