Valle Crucis, North Carolina has been attracting settlers and travelers alike, for nearly 200 years. Taylor House Inn is a Bed & Beakfast and, with the majestic surrounding valley scene and the beautiful herb garden, it is the perfect place to spend some quality time as well as to host an outdoor wedding or any other event. We at the Taylor House Inn invite you to come and experience a place that seems one of times past, a place where moments of solitude are as abundant as the rivers and streams that give life to the surrounding hills. We feel fortunate to be part of such a powerful place and would like to extend our hospitality to help share the magic of Valle Crucis.

My boyfriend and I recently spent the weekend at the Taylor House Inn and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We stayed in the Flower Cottage and were very happy with our room. Tessa was a wonderful cook and both mornings we had breakfast the food was delicious. Bernard and Tessa truly did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The Taylor House Inn is about 20 minutes from Sugar Mountain, and it was an easy drive to the mountain.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Taylor House Inn last weekend. We were warmly welcomed and pleased to find the house beautifully lit and decorated for Christmas! Bernard was so helpful when we arrived, and made sure we had everything we needed, including information about the surrounding area. Our bed was so comfortable! The ensuite bathroom was adequate if small, with lots of extra touches, and fresh towels daily. The Inn is beautifully situated, and not far from some wonderful places to eat, shop, and enjoy the beautiful mountains. Our breakfast was delicious, and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! We would gladly return, and would recommend it without hesitation!

A very nicely decorated house with style and atmosphere. The owners are especially friendly, helpful, and it is a joy to stay in their Inn. The breakfast is very good and served in a stylish way. There is a very good restaurant just around the corner. The country setting provides excellent views.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Taylor House inn so very much. The house is beautiful, set in picturesque farm land, and we were greeted as soon as we arrived with pumpkin pie and hot cocoa. Our room was so quaint and so clean. Our sheets felt amazing and the tub was so clean that I didn't hesitate to take a warm bath before bed. The best part? The delicious breakfast! Tessa Russo can cook!!! And it was all presented and served so nicely. We made great memories and we want to return :)
