We were warmly welcomed by the owner and her two dogs! That night a special treat - one of the best homemade biscuits I've ever had! What we really liked was not having to come to breakfast at a certain time and having our own table (not keen on eating with strangers).
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mast Farm Inn. The hospitality was wonderful. The blacksmith cottage was very charming. The wood stove was quite romantic and the soaking tub was very relaxing. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. And the cookies were out of this world amazing!!!
We absolutely loved our time at the Lovill House Inn and highly recommend a visit there. Anne & Scott are wonderful hosts, very friendly, and their hospitality is unmatched. You truly feel like you are there for a visit with great friends you have known for a long time. While they respect your privacy at all times, they make you feel right at home and welcome, like you belong there! Thanks, Scott and Anne, for a great weekend getaway at you home! Clint T.
We loved our time at the Mast Farm Inn! The hospitality was over the top and so helpful with tips and suggestions for us, based what we wanted to see around the area. The property is beautiful, even in the winter, with just a short walk to the Watauga River. We stayed in Nell's room which is absolutely lovely and spacious. Dining in the restaurant is a treat for any foodie! They actually shaved brussels sprouts for side dish that was amazing! The quality and local availability of food insured a fresh and delicious meal every time. This is a perfect location for touring Valle Crucis and the Boone areas.
We stayed at the Lovill House Inn a few weekends ago on our way to a wedding - what a fantastic stop! Scott and Anne are amazing - so lovely and welcoming and full of great local knowledge and ideas for dining and other activities! Our room was lovely, very clean, warm, and welcoming. And the location of the Inn is perfect - so close to downtown Boone, but it feels like you are completely secluded. We loved our stay - and even though we had originally planned for this to just be a one-off trip to Boone, we are already talking about when we can come back! Thanks Scott and Anne - what a lovely stay!
What a fun place to find on our way down south. We stayed in the charming blacksmith cottage and loved it. The sheets are simply amazing. So amazing we ordered three sets at breakfast and were delivered to us by the time we got home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lazy Bear Lodge. The rooms were amazing and overall experience was wonderful. Loved the jacuzzi tub and fireplace in the rooms. Great recommendation for dinner at Casa Rustica. We loved the dogs, just wished they weren't allowed in the dining room/kitchen area. Other than that, no complaints at all, it was absolutely perfect. Gorgeous view of the mountains as well. Very romantic place to get engaged as we did! (: We would love to go back!
We stayed in the cottage. It was exceptional. It was clean, warm, and very cozy. We only stayed one night due to our work schedules, but would have stayed another night, had we had the time. Staff is very accommodating, and friendly.
My wife and I decided to take a weekend trip to the Boone area. The Lazy Bear Lodge transformed our trip from good to great. From the moment we got out of our car we were smitten with this place. Two happy friendly dogs greeted us at the door, the receptionist gave us a through tour of the cabin and amenities, and the owners helped us pick a dinner spot. Wonderful room with a huge bed, fireplace, and great view it was completely relaxing. Breakfast in the morning was great too and the staff overly friendly. Loved this place and will go back again next time we visit Boone.
We were delighted by our three night stay at Lazy Bear Lodge. The setting is beyond beautiful, situated in the mountains outside of Boone, NC. The accommodations, service, and food were attractive, upscale, and comfortable. The hostess was available to respond to individual requests, give directions to area attractions, and help make dining choices. Bo and Bela added to the ambience! We would love to visit again in the future.
We have visited the Lovill House Inn for many years now. It is our fall destination for the change of seasons in the fall. I cannot say enough about the quality of the inn and the service Anne and Scott provide. The grounds are pristine and the rooms are well appointed. I recommend it without any reservation to anyone visiting the Boone NC area.
We love this B&B hands down! Great location in the beautiful area of Valle Crucis near the original Mast General Store up a climbing winding driveway that ends at a fabulous lodge beautifully decorated with a rustic mountain touches. The views from everywhere on this property are breathtaking, and the lovely owners are more than accommodating. We stayed in the Black Bear suite on the main floor which was very spacious, beautifully appointed decor, stove fireplace, and a sliding glass window to a deck with amazing vistas. We highly recommend and will stay there again.
The Lovill House Inn is just off downtown Boone. It is a lovely setting in a fantastic house. Our room had a fireplace which we took complete advantage of (very romantic for our anniversary!). The breakfasts were yummy and the other guests had some great stories. Anne and Scott are very nice, with a lot of entertaining stories. We would definitely visit again and highly recommend it to anyone.
We had a wonderful weekend at the Lazy Bear Lodge, and in the High Country. This was my first stay at the Lazy Bear Lodge, and my first trip to the High Country of N. C. Hopefully, it will not be our last. We look forward to coming back.
The Lovill House Inn is a gem in the Bed and Breakfast world. The inn itself is very well maintained, clean, comfortable, historic, and cozy. The location is exceptional. My husband and I were there in October-the leaves were beautiful but also the dahlias blooming on the grounds were breathtaking. There was a lovely fresh dahlia in our room daily. There are many reasons that we like to stay here. The innkeepers Scott and Anne go that extra mile in making your stay enjoyable and relaxing. The breakfasts are awesome. The inn is close to downtown Boone and near Blowing Rock and Banner Elk.so there are always things to do and see; however, one can stay at the inn and have a wonderful time also. We have returned to the Lovill House Inn many times and will continue to do so!
Great find in Boone! The Inn is charming and our room was very comfortable. The hosts/owners are delightful. Our only regret is that we stayed just one night. We would definitely stay there again if/when we return to the area.
Had a wonderful fall week at the Inn. We stayed in the Blacksmith Cabin 4 nights and enjoyed the privacy and convenience to the Inn for our fabulous morning breakfasts. The staff were warm, friendly, and always going the extra mile to make our stay special. We had one of the best dinners either of us had at Simplicity on Friday night. Would recommend a stay at the Mast Farm Inn any season of the year.
Would recommend this lovely B&B to anyone who wants to spend time relaxing in a beautiful setting. The Innkeepers exceed your expectations and their gift of hospitality was amazing. The breakfast meals were wonderful and sharing them with other guests, was very enjoyable. The rooms are lovely and very inviting. Our annual cousins reunion was held there and we all agreed that we will come again.
Lovill House is a lovely immaculate B&B, the décor, the furnishings, the linens, and the restored wooden floors and woodwork throughout the home are beautiful. Best of all were the gracious hosts, Scott and Anne and sharing our time there with the other guests. On top of everything else, the breakfast was delicious. We always stay at Inns and B&Bs and this one is one of our favorites. Barbara & Barbara
Scott and Ann were fantastic hosts. They made special dietary accommodations which can be difficult when the house is full. They were friendly and knowledgeable, providing excellent recommendations for hikes and dining. The house was beautiful and the flowers were unsurpassed. The location of the house is perfect - within walking distance to the main street. They even shipped small items that we forgot in our room to our next destination. Outstanding service!
We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary for 2 very special nights at Lovill House Inn. Scott and Anne (the owners) had a full house while we were there -- they remained kind, detailed and experts in showing great hospitality! We stayed in the Bristol room -- so lovely and warm. The fireplace in that room was so amazing! Scott made sure that it was ready to be lit, when we returned after a great day of exploring and eating. If you are a foodie, you will enjoy the fine restaurants in Boone and Blowing Rock. One that we really loved was the Best Cellar in Blowing Rock. We are so grateful to have been able to see this beautiful part of the country and also have the pleasure of staying at Lovill House Inn!
