Fodor's Expert Review The Yellow House on Plott Creek Road
89 Oak View Dr., Waynesville, North Carolina, 28786, USA
Just outside town, this lovely two-story Victorian, painted a sunflower yellow, sits on 5 acres on a low knoll, with colorful surrounding gardens and hammocks under shady trees. The rooms and suites, most with fireplaces and some with whirlpools, are named for and decorated to evoke other destinations, from Savannah, Georgia, to the Caribbean island of Saba and Estaing, France. Rooms in the adjoining Pond House are even more private than those in the main house. Plott Creek Road was named for the Plott hound, the state dog of North Carolina, a breed that was developed near the Yellow House to hunt coons and bears.
