Valle Crucis, North Carolina has been attracting settlers and travelers alike, for nearly 200 years.

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.

Everything about this inn was fantastic. Bernard and his family were extremely kind and courteous. Breakfast was five stars. Don't pass up this inn.

I was looking to provide a wonderful romantic getaway for my special someone on his birthday! This was my first time at a bed and breakfast but it exceeded my expectations and accomplished everything I hoped for and more. The food was wonderful and the staff great. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Bernard and Tessa were wonderful. They were friendly and courteous. We were going to stay only one night but, we ended up staying three. We will definitely be returning for our next trip to the mountains. Thanks Bernard and Tessa.

We enjoyed the suite at the top of the house-- a big comfy bed with a reading nook off to the side. The breakfasts are two-course and beautiful, simple, delicious food. Should you have food sensitivities, Tessa and Bernard will make substitutions. The house feels quiet and restful, and is tucked into a pastoral backdrop of mountain, wood, and pasture. Just lovely.
