The Mast Farm Inn is a Historic Hotels of America hotel, a Select Registry Inn, and is on The National Register of Historic Places. The Mast Farm Inn is more than a bed and breakfast, a full service country inn with farmhouse rooms, private getaway cottages and cabins, fine dining and great wines, organic gardens. The key to the Inn’s success, however, lies in the exceptionally friendly and caring service offered to lodging and dinner guests alike. With inspired restoration and continuing care, the Inn continues to welcome guests, as it did over 100 years ago. Lodging guests now choose from 7 guest rooms in our 1880s farmhouse and 8 cottages and cabins, some restored from original farm buildings, others newly built. Cottages range in size from cozy ones suitable for a couple to large ones for up to six guests. All are unique spaces. The Inn’s award winning restaurant is celebrated, serving fresh, organic, creative contemporary southern cuisine. Enjoy fireside or terrace dining, depending on the season. The service is attentive, yet relaxed and friendly. Located in peaceful, historic Valle Crucis, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the Inn is convenient to Boone and Blowing Rock, close to the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and the magnificent Grandfather Moun

When you have a special memory tucked away it seems that reliving it is next to impossible. My husband and I decided to revisit the Mast Farm Inn for our tenth anniversary. We discovered this gem of a bed and breakfast on our honeymoon and when the time came to think about what to do for our tenth, there was no competition! The Mast Farm Inn is "practically perfect in every way" with attention given to even the smallest details! The food is beyond gourmet, the staff top notch, hospitable, and accomedating, the rooms are carefully decorated with vintage finds and lavish luxuries! The grounds are so lovely and one cannot help but relax on the porch swings, or take a quite walk by the stream laced by wildflowers. There are an abundance of activities to attract guests such as ziplining, fine dining, local crafts, vineyard tours, hiking, shopping and driving the blue ridge parkway (need I say more!) I would return to this bed and breakfast over any of the others I have visited over the years (there have been many) I cannot recommend it enough!!!

We hadn't been away in a long time and chose the Mast Farm In and we were NOT disappointed. From the surprise upgrade, to the lovely cottage, to the great service, homemade cookies, and great food nothing could have been better. We will return again!

At 48 years of age and well over 20 years of marriage, I always wanted to stay at a B&B. So, I made reservations for my husband and myself for Valentine's weekend 2015. The night before we were to leave, my husband found out he had to work and would not be able to go. I asked my sixteen year old if she would like to go with me....(I wasn't going to miss my trip). Of course she said YES! Let me just start off by saying....we loved our trip! Our room was super quaint, the food is amazing. The personal touches were well thought out. It even snowed while we were there....we made our first 2015 snowman. If you have never stayed at a B&B and always wanted to try it....you MUST make your reservations now, you will not regret it. We will def. be staying here again!

Top of the line Bed and Breakfast, great history behind the property being established. We booked as a one night stay over on our way to Nantahala River. This is a gem. We stayed in the Grainery. cant wait to return in the spring, although spending time there during the winter was absolutely perfect. Danielle was the best host and was very accommodating. You must see all the buildings on the property. Dinner at Over Yonder was fantastic, Lamb pot pie with red cabbage and veggies, turkey, black bean soup and a few moonshine specialty drinks did the trick. Our waitress Paige was fun and very friendly. See ya in the spring. A must to visit. If you are Military, you should call to make reservations, otherwise you wont get a discount if you book on line, Suggest Mast Farm Inn, note that on their website.

Had a great experience at Mast Farm Inn this past weekend while visiting Appalachian State for a on-campus tour with my daughter. Many special touches. Room was cozy and clean (a biggie). Bedding was comfortable. Breakfast each morning was great and they accommodated my request for gluten-free. Loved getting to know the staff and proprietor, Danielle! Will go back soon as the cottages look appealing for our next stay.

We shoot for one trip a year to this place during ski season. The property is well kept, the rooms are beautiful & Simplicity at the Mast Farm Inn (restaurant) is worth a day trip even if you don't stay at the Inn.

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.
