Meet the Innkeepers

After living in Minnesota’s frozen tundra for the past 25 years, Chad King and Josh Larson decided it was time to find a more temperate climate. They fell in love with the tranquil and picturesque mountains of Western North Carolina, the charming town of Waynesville, and the majestic 135-year-old Yellow House on Plott Creek Road. In October 2019, they packed up their belongings and their dog (Harry) and moved South.

Josh and Chad bring experience in property management, marketing, accounting, design, hospitality, and compliance. Chad has worked as a marketer and product manager in the publishing industry for 15 years and more recently healthcare design and development for a Fortune 10 company. Josh began his career as a respiratory therapist and has an extensive background in health care administration and health law working as a Director of Compliance for a mid-sized healthcare organization.

Chad and Josh are humbled and honored to be the innkeepers of this elegant inn. They are dedicated to maintaining the classic character of The Yellow House while incorporating their passions for the outdoors, customer service, all things food-related, and gardening and landscaping. Chad and Josh look forward to welcoming new faces to the inn as well as hosting returning guests. The short under-a-minute commute to work is also welcomed after years of battling snowy, icy and congested freeways.
