Mike & Tracey Burnette

Friendly owners of 1898 Waverly Inn

We know our guests will feel at home when we feel at home. We deliver great service each and every day with a spirit of kindness, teamwork, and hospitality.

Mike and Tracey Burnette first had the idea of owning a bed and breakfast while living in Charleston, SC in the 90's. That idea set on the shelf for a few decades. In the mean time, Tracey spent time in medical sales and teaching while Mike had a career in magazine marketing. In the fall of 2015 Mike randomly came across a bed and breakfast for sale in his hometown of Asheville and the seed planted in the 90's finally began to grow. Within just a few months they found the 1898 Waverly for sale and couldn't turn down the opportunity.

Hendersonville proved to be the ideal match for them and the perfect town for their next adventure. They love Hendersonville's small town charm with great restaurants and shopping all within a short walk from the Waverly's front door. Hospitality is the key to their success and they want all of their guests feeling as if they are staying with family. They pride themselves on making sure you have an amazing stay in Hendersonville. From the farm to table breakfast, social hour and personalized service you are likely to be one of our many guests who return time and time again.
