  • History

    Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast in 1995 before restorationIn 1995 Don and Ann Rothermel were visiting the Waynesville area on a short vacation. While stopping to view the pictures in the window of a local real estate office, their interest was aroused by this home and what seemed to be a fateful pleading to come and see her. Their first visit to the property occurred at ten o'clock in the morning and as the saying goes "just one look is all it took". By two o'clock that afternoon the contracts were signed, approved and a final closing date was determined

    Having had previous exposure to remodeling and restoration, Don's experience with construction along with Ann's decorating talent seemed to be the ideal combination required to save this fine old home. They set out on their course of resurrecting the house in April of '96.

    They determined that they would do the physical work themselves so as to retain all the original attributes of the property. Their concept was to restore those things that contributed to the original ambiance while upgrading the mechanical systems to extend the safety, convenience and life of the structure. This careful blending of old and new enables you to take a trip back in time while enjoying the conveniences of the present. The major portion of the renovation was completed in May of 1998 and the Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast opened its doors the following month.

     Our bed and breakfast in Waynesvill, NC before renovation in 1995In June of 2006, Ron and Rachel Reid purchased this beautiful Waynesville bed and breakfast after a four-year search. This meticulously renovated home dazzled them. After settling into the town of Waynesville, NC, they changed the name to Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast. Ron and Rachel continued in the home-style traditions of Don and Ann and in addition, brought their own personal touches to this lovely Inn.

    After spending 15 years in the Raleigh area, and three in China, Mark & Kari decided to purchase the Andon-Reid in 2012 after touring this beautiful Inn. Hospitality is the main goal for the new owners and each guest is given personal treatment. Recently, Mark and Kari continued the rich tradition of all the previous owners by renovating the Garden Room, Dining Room, Mountain View Room, and added a beautiful new Carriage House Suite. Come enjoy top notch Waynesville, NC lodging and a getaway to remember.
