About Diannah Beauregard

This mountain home that I have called home for more 25 years now has been my sanctuary and art studio all these years. It has gone through many transformations. In the beginning, I lived upstairs and had my art studio in the apartment below the house - which is the studio apartment that I have recently made ready for guests.

I have always had a love for nature and it has been a source of inspiration of the artwork that I have produced throughout my live here in Balsam. The studio apartment was always my favorite space to create, and now it has become a guest house that I am both happy and proud to share with travelers from near and far.

Diannah Beauregard purchased this apartment in 1991

Why Diannah Beauregard chose Waynesville

This is the place you will enjoy coming to if you want to get away and experience the quiet of nature. The tall trees in the neighboring forest are a real comfort and home to many birds. The natural beauty of my home will surely relax you and give you a peaceful, relaxing feeling.

Great Place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved my stay in Waynesville. Diannah was a wonderful host and provided everything we needed while we were there. Property was beautiful and peaceful as well. The apartment was well appointed. Comfy bed and well supplied kitchen. Great location, minutes away from Downtown Waynesville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. May come back in the spring.

The property was perfect. Very clean spacious quiet and comfortable. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Diannah was the perfect hostess. Everything we needed we had in the cute, spacious, private apartment below her main house. We were surprised at how big it was and was much better than even the description. We would not hesitate to stay here again. The bed was very comfortable and the location was perfect.
