Get to know Herren House at Blue Ridge Bridal Event
Located one block off Main Street, Waynesville, the Herren House is the ideal opportunity to create lasting memories of your wedding. With multiple room choices, a sitting room, community dining room, and fantastic English Garden out back, the atmosphere of the Herren House is a delightful experience.
The Briggs moved to Haywood County in 2011 from Hendersonville after purchasing the inn. Having never been to Waynesville, they fell in love with the community and small town atmosphere immediately. They have never regretted their move to the mountains.
Michelle has a charming accent from growing up off the coast of Kent on the Isle of Sheppey. She has managed to bring a bit of England to the inn by offering mystery dinners, poetry reading, wine and dine events, reunions, and weddings.
The Briggs have two children, Lindsey, 27, Jack, 7, and a grandson, Jamison, 2. Their family includes three employees — Margaret Williams, Laurie White and Tracy Walker — without whom their business could not function.
The Briggs enjoy the number of guests that return to Herren House after an initial visit, as well as getting to meet people from all over the world. The reasons why people visit Waynesville are always a good conversation starter.
Herren House offers lunch specials, evening events and weekend retreats as well as wedding opportunities. The Briggs are always delighted to have a local stop by for lunch and return with someone new.
To those looking to start a business, the Briggs recommend getting involved with the community in every way possible. The local residents will become familiar with the business, the business owner’s ethics and morals, and the business owner’s desire to serve those around them. In return, the community will support the new business in every way possible to keep the economic market following through the doors.
The Herren House is proud to be offering its services to the community and others as a local venue with a personal touch. Visit Michelle at the 2014 Blue Ridge Bridal Show on April 5 at Lake Junaluska Shackford House. Find out what The Herren House Inn has to make an event a memorable experience.
