Guests at The Yellow House in Waynesville, North Carolina feel very welcome when they meet innkeepers Chad King and Josh Larson. We visited to tour Western Carolina University in nearby Cullowhee.

We stayed in the Rockwell Suite (pictured above), named in honor of the famous 20th-century American author and prolific artist Norman Rockwell, who produced more than 4,000 works in his lifetime. Rockwell is most famous for the color illustrations of everyday life he created for the Saturday Evening Post for nearly five decades. In the suite, some of Mr. Rockwell's pictures are on the walls.
