The main thing we love about Waynesville is living in a small town, yet having Asheville so close (within 30 minutes). Our town has so many small businesses that care about their customer service. When visitors come to Waynesville, it is easy to direct them to any type of restaurant they are in the mood for.
Thai Spice, City Bakery, and Bocceli’s are just a few of our favorite restaurants. All of these are only 5 minutes from our home. When we are done eating, we try to stop by one of the local breweries in town. Frog Level and Tipping Point Brewing are within the same distance as the restaurants. Or, if you are just looking for a cup of coffee, Panacea is a very relaxing place to go sip and enjoy some of the great smells when they are roasting.
Ingles Supermarket is right down the street and always has the best produce. Walmart, Best Buy, and PetSmart are only a couple minutes away. Main Street is 3 miles away, and includes locally owned businesses such as Mast General Store (hiking & outdoor gear), consignment shops, massage therapy and yoga studio, etc.
The creek is what really drew our attention. There are not many places you can walk out your back door to go down to your own creek. It was only a matter of time before a fire pit was put in and were able to have a fire by the creek. Having a nice level yard is great to get out and play in, yet we see the mountains all around.
Another bonus is the flat roads to the highway. When the roads get back its much easier to get in and out of. We added a covered porch as well. During bad weather, this is especially nice if you plan on grilling out or need extra room for get-togethers. Great hiking trails are about 25-30 minutes away on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Waterrock Knob is 25 minutes away and has an awesome view to watch the sunset or to have a picnic.
Waynesville has an outstanding small town feel. Once you start going out and about you will have new friends in no time.
Our daughter isn’t old enough for school yet, but we both grew up in the school system and would match to any of the other surrounding areas. Our daughter was born at the local hospital and, having used to work there, I can say that it is an outstanding and caring place to receive medical care.
There are usually an abundance of festivals that Waynesville has to offer. From the Apple Harvest Festival to Folk Moot Parade (a festival/parade that brings dancers from many countries). Art After Dark happens on the first Friday of each month, and most businesses stay open a few hours later so you can walk the streets and look at some of the local art galleries and enjoy local bands.
We are right in the middle of the outdoor playground. We really enjoy going hiking and are only 6 minutes from an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. One of our favorite spots is Devil’s Courthouse which is only a 25 minute drive. There are some great fishing spots as well. There are plenty of parks and recreation areas for kids and grown-ups. You could pick up Frisbee golf at the local course. Allens Creek Park is located only half a mile from our house, and includes a beautiful track .We feel very safe in our neighborhood and never worry about what we may leave outside an our neighbors keep their lawns nicely manicured.
We have city water and sewer and have an average water bill of $36/month. For electric we have Progress Energy with an average of $115/month. In the spring and summer months, we usually open the windows to let the fresh air in which reduces the bill. We also have a gas log fireplace that is nice to use on the cold and snowy days but also serves as backup in case the power goes out.
