Exceeded expectations, would stay again
I had to make an "emergency" trip to Waynesville from Charlotte for a funeral, and picked this place because of its location and what I guess could be called a "mountain urban" vibe. Given the circumstances, I was not in a "party" mood, and I am 55 years old, and I was somewhat reticent to spend my weekend above a restaurant/bar. HOWEVER...it was great. Exceedingly clean. Large, good views of main street on the front, nice private deck with grill on the back. Plenty of plates, cooking utensils, etc. The building is so large that on the second floor you are very much isolated from any noise that might be coming from below. And I did venture down for some very good beer and very friendly people. Main street is a great place to stroll, nice small shops to wander around in. Had very good meals at the Sweet Onion, Frogs Leap Public House, and Tipping Point (below). Panacea Coffee is a three or four block walk and you can have great coffee sitting next to a calm creek in Frog Level. We got to go foods (cheese, salami) and good hard cider from the Sunburst Market in the same block. One clue: to turn shower on, pull down the ring on the end of the tub spout.
