Nice house. Rooms needed décor updates.
Thank you for your input. Sorry you did not like our Pottery Barn decor. We are constantly working on room and common area updates.

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!
Thank you for your detailed review of the inn. We love our location as you described. Lovill House is truly an in town rural inn. Appreciate your kind comments! We love what we do!

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.
Thank you for your kind comments. Come back and enjoy more of the North Carolina High Country area in the near future! Thank you for taking time to review the inn!

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.
Thank you for taking time to review the inn. We thoroughly enjoyed having you all here! Your positive energy was contagious! Again, thanks for staying with us and choosing Lovill House Inn as the place for your family reunion.

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!

This clean and roomy B&B also had a gourmet breakfast. My husband and I walked to downtown Boone for dinner and the artsy happenings in town. It was so close to the shops and restaurants and ASU. The owners were friendly and helpful and allowed us to help ourselves to drinks in the refrig. The property is lovely with lots of benches and rocking chairs to relax and take in the beauty of the area. I would highly recommend this inn to anyone who wants to relax!!
Thank you for your very kind words and for taking time to review the Lovill House Inn. We thank you for appreciating our attention to detail. We really do try to make your visit "like being at home, only better!. Hope to see you both again very soon!

My husband and I traveled with friends to Boone to celebrate both husbands birthdays and spent two wonderful nights at the Lovill House Inn. Inn owner Scott showed us superb hospitality and helped us navigate local sites and food. We found the home lovely and warm and the gardens breathtaking. We enjoyed hearing about the history or the home as well. I would highly recommend this B & B!
4.4 on September 11, 2014
we had a very nice experience at this inn and would go back again
5 on September 02, 2014
The house, rooms, gardens and property are beautiful. The host and hostess are very gracious. The breakfast was superb! I would highly recommend the Lovill House Inn.
5 on August 31, 2014
The hosts Scott & Anne had outstanding personalities and tried their best to accommodate your needs, to enjoy our stay. We were pleased with the service and hospitality being our first experience staying at a Bed & Breakfast Inn. We would highly recommend the Lovill Inn.
5 on August 28, 2014
We wanted to get away to the NC mountains for a little rest and relaxation and decided to give Lovill House Inn in Boon a try...and are we glad we did. The Inn is very nice and beautiful inside and out. Scott and Ann,the innkeepers, were the best...very attentive and polite. We were made to feel like very special guests in their home. The food was great and lots of good company around the breakfast table. We will definitely be going there again. Highly recommend!
5 on August 23, 2014
We have stayed at the Lovill House Inn on two occasions and have found this location to be extremely convenient to most of the area attractions but at the same time amazingly beautiful and peaceful. The hosts are probably some of the kindest people we have met on our stays at many bed and breakfast accommodations throughout the state. I can't imagine that you would be disappointed in any way.
5 on August 20, 2014
My girlfriend and I recently spent 3 nights at Lovill House Inn. What a wonderful experience! From the moment we arrived you could see the love that Scott and Anne have for their inn. The grounds were beautifully maintained, with shrubs and flowers everywhere. The house was gorgeous, with a welcoming wrap-around porch and beautiful rooms throughout. Our room, the Hickory, was well appointed and very spacious. The bed was extremely comfortable and the furnishings were very tasteful. The breakfasts were outstanding and diverse. As wonderful as the house, grounds, and food were, what made our stay so nice was the hospitality of Scott and Anne. They made us feel right at home, always greeting us by name and with a smile. They were very attentive, giving us pointers on places to visit and eat and making sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely go back to Lovill House Inn if our travels take us back to Boone. Henry L.
5 on August 18, 2014
This was my families first ever stay in a B&B. We were greeted by name and felt at home immediately. The rooms were delightful as well as clean and comfortable. While we were only there for one night, we have already booked our next visit on October.

Real clean good food and beauiful room and grounds
5 on August 13, 2014
Even though we were in Boone for college move in, we appreciated our cozy retreat to the Lovill House after a long day. Everything was fabulous! This will be a repeat for us on our next visit to Boone. Thank you Ann and Scott.

We stayed at the Lovill House Inn to attend the GMHG. The service and stay were both fantastic. My only suggestion concerns the window AC units. The evenings were cool during our stay. The night air was cooler than the AC so the room would get stuffy overnight. I would have preferred to sleep with the windows open instead of having the air on but this did not seem possible. I did not ask Scott or Anne if this was possible so fault could very be mine.
Thank you for your kind words concerning your experience at Lovill House. 4 of our 6 six rooms have both window fans and A/C units during warmer months. For the other two including yours with only two windows in the room we are always happy to change out fan for A/C or the other way around depending on the weather conditions. Hope this is helpful.
5 on July 24, 2014
This is a delightful sanctuary outside the main street of Boone, NC. Even though it was raining most of my three days I loved staying there, meeting other guests, and sleeping in a wonderfully comfortable bed.Breakfast is outrageously yummy and changes every day. I would definitely come back.
5 on July 16, 2014
We picked the BEST place to celebrate our anniversary. The cottage behind the main house was quiet and private. Scott and Ann are the world's BEST innkeepers. They are both very personable. Scott has extensive knowledge of what to visit and where to eat in the area. Ann is a superb chef and her decorating skills are clearly visible throughout the B&B. We have Paul Lovill House Inn on the top of our list of places to recommend to friends staying in Boone or Blowing Rock.
5 on July 05, 2014
Scott and Anne are the absolute best and most hospitable innkeepers in the world! The inn is always beautiful and well maintained! We stay here every year for our anniversary and can't think of any place or any other people we would rather spend that time with! We love the inn and the innkeepers! You won't find a better stay period!
4.4 on July 02, 2014
Great time and location - just off the beaten path but close to everything. Facility was very clean and warm. Wifi is spotty and needs improvement.
4.8 on June 30, 2014
Well maintained inn and grounds by the very hospitable innkeepers Anne & Scott! They would do anything for you and made our short stay enjoyable.
3.2 on June 10, 2014
This was our first experience staying in a bed and breakfast. We stayed in the separate cottage behind the house and found the accommodations very comfortable, clean and cozy. The grounds are beautiful and the owners are very friendly and helpful! We would definitely choose to stay there again when visiting that area.
5 on June 06, 2014
This was the first time my grandmother and I have ever been to a bed and breakfast. Scott and Ann were very friendly, resourceful and knowledgeable about Boone and surrounding areas. This B&B felt very homey and comfortable. The food is delicious. I plan to go back in the future for vacation. I can truly say that we were completely satisfied with this B&B.
5 on June 02, 2014
Scott and Anne made me feel welcomed the moment I stepped onto their wrap-around porch. I will most certainly return as I felt instantly like I had just "come home to see dear friends."
4.2 on June 01, 2014
I was fortunate to be able to stay at Lovill House for four days with my adult children. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of not only our rooms, but also of the common living areas and porches. Scott and Anne are gracious hosts and Anne fixed a fabulous breakfast each morning. I had previously stayed at Lovill House several times and this B&B continues to exceed my expectations. Tracey K., Dallas, TX

My wife and I stayed at Lovill House Inn for four wonderful fun filled days. The Inn was delightful in every respect. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the accommodations and breakfasts were outstanding. Scott and Anne, the innkeepers, were very kind and helpful. We would love to return to this B & B some day!
5 on May 27, 2014
We had such a wonderful experience staying at the Lovill House Inn. The hosts were very accommodating and gracious. They offered wonderful advice for sightseeing on our route for the departure day. This was one of the best experiences we have had at a Bed and Breakfast. I highly recommend this location. They have a very nice bathroom facility, too which can make or break a stay (in my estimation). We were in The Hickory room.
5 on May 22, 2014
My wife and I enjoyed the Lovill House, beautiful grounds, meals, and hospitality of the innkeepers. We stay at multiple B&Bs throughout the year and this stay rated very high. We plan to head back.
4.4 on May 22, 2014
The Lovill Inn was lovely and the Inn keeepers are wonderful. Theri are very knowledgable in the history, area and events going on in and near the area. The food was fantastic,as were the rooms.
5 on May 14, 2014
Scott and Anne pay attention to every detail at this B&B! Even though it was graduation weekend, and they were completely full, they took the time out for each guest! The room was clean and the whole house was very inviting! The location is perfect if you are looking to walk to downtown! We will be back!
4.6 on April 08, 2014
We had a great time! Easy to get to, right in the heart of Boone. Very hospitable.

This was our 2nd time visiting this inn. It is a beautiful old house. The room was wonderful. Loved the breakfasts!! The innkeepers are very kind, helpful and welcoming. Will go again someday.
4.6 on February 13, 2014
We spent a long weekend here in the Spring House Cabin (detached from the B&B) and it was wonderful. The whole premise was clean and Scott and Anne were fantastic hosts, gracious, helpful and not at all overbearing. Every morning we had a wonderful breakfast that was different each day with fresh juices and unique offerings as opposed to the usual short order cook meals. They were extremely accommodating, allowing use of the grounds, kitchen area, etc. The cabin was spotless with ample room for a couple looking to get away. The gas fireplace was a great touch to warm up the room on those cold nights. Although the cabin was 30 steps from the main house, it was very quiet and private. We had a great time especially watching Heidi (the house pouch) cruising around the grounds sniffing away. It's a short walk into town so long as you like to walk. Definitely recommend the Lovill House!
5 on January 29, 2014
this is a lovely inn. It is close enough to town to be convenient to all that Boone has to offer...restaurants, shops, museum, more. We only were able to stay one night, but hope to return again soon. It is immaculate and very comfortable. A 5 star inn in our opinion!
5 on January 25, 2014
The Inn Keepers, Anne and Scott, are passionate about keeping this historical property in outstanding condition. Their attention to every detail is impressive and they made our wedding anniversary very memorable. I highly recommend staying at the Lovill House Inn anytime you want to make your trip to Boone a special experience.
5 on January 23, 2014
The innkeepers are lovely people who go out of their way to ensure that your stay is satisfactory. The house is gorgeous with warm, inviting rooms. Breakfast was a delicious assortment of fresh food. We will be back!

This was my our first time staying at a B and B. We had a wonderful time and Scott and Ann were so nice. We stayed in the Bristol room, made a nice fire and watched a movie. It was such a relaxing time. We enjoyed having breakfast with strangers who quickly became friends. So looking forward to a return visit.
4.4 on December 04, 2013
We recently stayed at Lovill House over the Thanksgiving holiday and we're not disappointed. Scott and Anne are wonderful hosts who provided an exceptional Thanksgiving dinner in addition to the daily breakfasts. We will look forward to our next stay at the Lovill house!
5 on December 03, 2013
We have stayed at the Lovill House for 8 years and have loved every minute. There is no place we would rather spend time relaxing and exploring. The innkeepers, Anne and Scott, love their home and it shows! We have stayed in all of the rooms except the Spring House and each is beautifully decorated and even small details are updated regularly. There are beverages in the frig for the guests in the evenings. Breakfast is delicious and fresh. Anne is a creative cook and will accommodate special dietary needs. My husband is allergic to bananas and Anne always leaves them out of the fresh fruit salad...she remembers even after all these years! Scott cares for the grounds of the inn and Anne has beautiful flower gardens...the lupine and dahlias are gorgeous!! They are friendly, attentive innkeepers and are always ready to suggest fun things to do. They make sure we are ready for the day and turn down our beds each night with Ghirardelli chocolates on the bed! We look forward to our next visit!
4.8 on December 03, 2013
I was very impressed with the level of service and the comfort of the whole B&B. Scott and Anne have really set the bar high for this doubtful first-timer. I really felt like I was in a five-star hotel...minus the cold organization of a business. It felt like a home away from home....without having to lift a finger. An amazing Thanksgiving meal was served and I would love to return for another stay.
4.8 on November 28, 2013
My husband and I wanted to go to the Boone area for our anniversary. We found the Lovill House Inn online and liked the looks of it. When we arrived we were welcomed by the owner and shown to a really pretty, clean room. The owner explained the meal times and showed us around the house. The breakfasts were very good and gave us an opportunity to meet other guests. We sat by a lovely fire and visited over coffee before breakfast was served. Before we came for our weekend, the owners recommended several local restaurants and the ones we ate at were outstanding. We look forward to going back!

Beautiful home and Anne & Scott where just wonderful! They took special attention to my needs and were very accommodating. Beth Brown
5 on November 05, 2013
We've used B&Bs extensively in the US and in France and we can truly say Lovell House is one of the finest we seen. The place is immaculate and very thoughtfully furnished. And the inkeepers, Scott and Ann, are so considerate and helpful. We spent two beautiful nights there in late October and were treated to an early snow storm that made the place even cozier. Hightly recommend!!
5 on November 04, 2013
We had an outstanding time during our stay at the Lovill House Inn. Ann and Scott greeted us and showed us through the entire property. Our room was clean and just as advertised. Ann and Scott provided recommendations for local restaurants for dinner and the one we chose had wonderful food. Breakfast the next morning couldn't have been better. Ann and Scott have everything well thought out and made us feel right at home. We'll certainly visit again when we're in the area.

Ranks at the top of all the B&B's we have stayed in
5 on October 29, 2013
My boyfriend and I stayed here on a whim after traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway all day, and boy were we lucky they had availability! Scott and Anne (and Heidi too) are not only hospitable, but are both genuine and lovely. Walking into their home felt like walking into a family member's home. Scott gave us a thorough tour of the house (the oldest in Boone) as soft classical music played in the background. After we chose a restaurant, Anne called for a reservation for us. Conversation was easy going and fun. They truly are two wonderful people! Breakfast, the following morning, was flowing with homemade food and coffee. I almost did not want to leave! This was our first B&B experience and we were definitely spoiled! There is no question that we will be back, and will refer anyone and everyone we know to head their way. Thank you both so very very much!

Very nice place close to town and things to do. I would stay there again.
3.4 on October 27, 2013
We only had one night to spend in Boone. Lovill House was ideally located--close enough to be convenient for walking to restaurants & shops, but just far enough off the main drag to be quiet. The Spring House cottage was our own getaway within the getaway.
5 on October 24, 2013
Everything here is great but the warmth of Ann & Scott, the "family" feel of innkeepers and guests, and the interaction at the communal breakfast (delicious too) stand above most other B & B's.
5 on October 19, 2013
My husband and I stayed in the Bristol room and absolutely loved it. It was absolutely beautiful, comfortable and we truly felt "at home." The fireplace was perfect for the Fall night we stayed there. Scott and Ann were the perfect hosts and breakfast (made from scratch by Ann herself) was delicious. My husband and I will stay no where else but the Lovill House Inn whenever we visit Boone in the future.
5 on October 18, 2013
Another great stay at Lovill House. The inn was full but handled six couples with ease. All couples appeared to love their accommodation. Owners Scott and Ann ensured everyone one was at home and comfortable. Delicious breakfast.
5 on October 16, 2013
This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and my wife and I could not be more pleased. The hosts were friendly,knowledgable and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and quiet. We will include the Lovill House when visiting Boone in the future
4.8 on October 07, 2013
We had a great stay. The room was comfortable, the porch inviting, the grounds beautiful. Little stream runs next to it with a cute wood shed and a barn. Hammack out back calling your name!! Everything was clean and perfect. Breakfast was good with a variety of seasonal fruits, frech bakes breads, homemade pancakes, juice, etc. excellant coffee !! Really would recommend the Inn

Spent a restful evening after a long, long drive heading home from the Bourbon Trail. Woke to an excellent cup of coffee followed by a really nice breakfast and conversation. Will definitely stay again if we are in the area. Scott and Anne are wonderful hosts.

The inn keepers were very accomodating and always ready to help in any way. I will most certainly stay there again. I'm looking forward to it all ready!

Scott, Anne and Heidi were warm and welcoming. Great recommendations for dinner, interesting conversation, extremely comfortable accommodation, excellent breakfast (we go to many B&Bs and theirs was one we'll always remember). Looking forward to staying again and for a longer stretch ... it was that terrific.

We loved our stay even though it was only one night. The Inn is just stunning and the hosts were so gracious and welcoming. We've been to other B&B's but never one like this. We loved the setting, the room was spacious and well designed, the other guests were friendly, the breakfast was delicious and again, the hosts were just wonderful! We will definintely recommend and hope to return soon. Donna and Gary Taylor

The service, welcoming hosts and terrific house and location make Lovill House a highly recommended place in Boone. We were not fans of having a dog in the home though, so non-pet lovers beware.

We spent 4 nights at the Lovill House, and really enjoyed ourselves. We had a king room, and the bed was really comfortable. Good location for downtown Boone and its restuarants.

Me and my wife enjoyed a relaxing few days at the Lovill House Inn. Scott and Anne were Awesome. Breakfast was great. We stayed in the Spring House. Nice and quite in the back. Would definitely recommend and stay there again. Thanks Scott and Anne.
5 on July 28, 2013
The Lovill House is very convenient to Appalachian State University, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain and Grandfather Vineyard! The house and rooms are very comfortable and well appointed and the owners bend over backward to meet your every need. The breakfasts are delicious and filling and a nice way to meet other people traveling to the area. We also made use of the refrigerator available to guests to keep a few items cold. We will be back! Nannette & Tom, Charlotte, NC
5 on July 27, 2013
My wife and I decided to stay here while on a weekend getaway to Boone. We are so glad we did. Scott and Anne made us feel like family and our room and the house were extremely nice and comfortable. The mix of people coming and going always inspired good conversation. This B & B is now our preferred location to stay when we come up to Boone. Great location, great house, and great innkeepers! We are looking forward to a return stay......
4.4 on July 26, 2013
We had the most wonderful experience visit at the Lovill House Inn. Scott and Anne were very helpful with their recommendations for dining and other areas of interest. The breakfast was delightful with delicious food and great company. The gardens and grounds are not to be missed. We will definitely return in the fall.
5 on July 08, 2013
Scott and Anne go the extra mile to make their quest feel at home. This was our second stay at Lovill House and we intend to go back. This is one our favorite places to stay.
4.8 on July 05, 2013
The surroundings were elegant, relaxing and harmonious with nature, which was the majority of the grounds of the property. The owner/proprietors Scott and Anne welcomed us from the minute that we arrived and continued to make us feel welcome until we left the following morning. When they learned that we had to leave very early in the morning, long before the normal breakfast time, they volunteered, indeed insisted, on getting up early and preparing us an early and most delicious breakfast before we left. We felt more like being guests at a friend's home than being in a hotel. Richard B. Watson
4.2 on July 04, 2013
The Lovill House was a lovely place to spend a nice weekend in the mountains. The house was beautiful and Anne and Scott were perfect hosts. They were around if you needed them, but otherwise, were kind enough to let you have your space. We will definately stay here again.
4.2 on June 29, 2013
Wonderful Inn and wonderful innkeepers. All my. Needs were met above and beyond.
5 on June 23, 2013
We stayed here for my boyfriend's birthday and it was a great experience. The house was beautiful and within walking distance to downtown Boone. The innkeepers were extremely friendly and I felt more like I was staying at "my" mountain house rather than a bed and breakfest. I would suggest the Lovill House to anybody.
5 on June 22, 2013
My wife and I stay here every year for our anniversary. Scott and Anne are the very best innkeepers that anyone could ask for!!! The food is wonderful and the rooms are top notch. They make our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. We have been staying here 4 out of the last 5 years and they have become part of our family. We look forward to our stay every year and we can't wait until next year to see them again! We recommend them to everyone that is planning a vacation. Outstanding place with extraordinary innkeepers!!!
4.2 on June 21, 2013
The Lovill House is a great place to stay. The room was spacious, the breakfast was prepared with care, and the house offers an expansive porch for rocking and relaxing. We also bought the Romance package which included massage,wine, and snacks. The masseuse was outstanding, but they need to definitely upgrade the wine and snacks.
4.8 on June 16, 2013
As part of our roadtrip, we visited Boone from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and were pleasantly surprised by what we found at Lovell House Inn. Scott greeted us and toured us around the inn and showed us our room. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We used one of their suggestions for a place to eat, and chose Casa Rustica (also well reviewed on Open Table). They were having a celebrity servers evening, but unfortunately without the celebrities, but the food was great. When Scott rang the bell for breakfast we enjoyed a light but very varied breakfast in pleasant company of other guests. If you stay here, be prepared to meet some very interesting folk. Highly recommended, and we will stay here again on future trips to North Carolina
4.2 on June 15, 2013
We recently spent a couple of days at the Lovill House to relax and check out Boone. The innkeepers were very nice and not intrusive, the property was lovely and the house itself was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and I took advantage of the in room massage and was not disappointed. Our room was exceptionally clean as was the rest of the home. We would certainly stay there again and recommend to others.
5 on June 03, 2013
Lovill House Inn was in a beautiful setting. Scott and Anne made us feel right at home. Also, their dog Heidi was quiet and shy and never barked, but I think she was warming up to us as we left. The breakfast served was delicious. I would recommend this bed and breakfast. It was terrific.
4.0 on May 27, 2013
We had a wonderful stay and I would highly recommend this B&B! The room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable - affording a great nights sleep. While breakfast, during both our mornings, was very good - we've found serving buffet style usually falls short for the last few folks in line. Scott and Anne are excellent Inn keepers and Scott provided us with a great orientation to the property. The location was great for our stay and for anyone spending a little time in the smokey mountains. Scott has the Lovill property in excellent condition, one any do-it-yourself yard buff would love to call their own! If you go, pack something a little extra in your pocket - no not money - a doggie treat! Heidi is the Lovill House mascot and protector. A wonderful creature who joins the breakfast crowd each morning and wonders the property as her home. Scott, Annie, & Heidi - thanks again, we enjoyed our visit. Best, James & Toby

Our family enjoyed returning to the Lovill House Inn for Appalachian State Graduation weekend. Our hosts, Scott and Ann, met our every need and our rooms were lovely!

Our recent stay at the Lovill House included everything we look for and hope to find in an excellent B&B. We were impressed from the moment we were welcomed by Scott & Anne. They were gracious, warm, and accommodating hosts from beginning to end. The property has been tastefully updated and maintained in order to provide all of the modern conveniences of home, while still maintaining its historic look and feel. The meals were creative and delicious. Without a doubt, one of our best B&B experiences and one we would not hesitate to revisit!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! My husband also purchased the massage package for me and it was amazing! The owners know the area very well and are very friendly and accommodating!

Our son and son-in-law stayed at Lovill House Inn (located in Boone, NC) last year and enjoyed their stay so much they gave my husband a gift certificate for his birthday. We finally had a chance to use it this year on April 12. The building and the grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The room was beautiful, comfortable, and very clean. We were made to feel very at home with a tour of the house, an invitation to explor the grounds, a library of movies, and being welcome to use the glasses and refrigerator. After a very cozy night's rest we were delighted to have a very delicious breakfast in the Inn's dining room. We recommend Lovill House Inn to everyone. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer and had to return home-albeit for my husband's surprise 50th birthday party. We plan to return again and again.

Great place. I will recommend to many others.

We spent 4 days and 3 nights at the Lovill House Inn from April 21st thru April 24th. The grounds were perfectly manicured and beautiful. The Springhouse Cottage was very cozy. The cottage was immaculate. Scott and Anne were very attentive to our request for privacy. Scott delivered coffee to our cottage each morning and was always cheerful and most accommodating when questioned about area attractions and dining options. The experience far exceeded our expectations. Our visit was much too short but we will surely return. We didn't utilize the dining room every day but when we did the variety and quality of food offered was excellent. There isn't much more we can say other than try it you'll like it. Thanks Anne and Scott for a great experience and for sharing your slice of heaven with us.

We've been visiting Anne and Scott for more than 6 years. They are the best at making you feel comfortable and relaxed. They are not just innkeepers - they are dearest friends who know how to make you have a relaxing stay.

This was a lovely setting with friendly and informative hosts, and first class food for breakfast. Just delightful.
5 on April 20, 2013
The Lovill House Inn in Boone is incredible! The owner greeted us and showed us around the main house as well as giving us a tour of the cottage that we had reserved. I suggest that anyone spending some time in Boone, book a reservation with Lovill House Inn. It is perfect.
4.8 on April 11, 2013
Lovill House was not only ideal in it's location to enjoy Boone and the surrounding area, but it was a beautiful place to spend time in. We were welcomed from the moment we arrived and all our needs were met with care and attention. Our room far exceeded our expectations and the breakfasts were outstanding. Every day there was something new and unique on the menu, cooked to perfection for us to enjoy. We will wholeheartedly be recommending Lovill House to family & friends and may even be back ourselves! Thank you.

We very much enjoyed our stay. Friendly hosts. Great food. Beautiful rooms.

My wife and I stayed there recently for our anniversary and it was spectacular. We were greeted with such warmth that it felt like we were family. It is a beautiful and historic home.
5 on March 29, 2013
My wife and I were celebrating our first anniversary, so I surprised her with a trip to this lovely and picturesque B&B just outside downtown Boone. When I made the reservation on their website, there was limited room available, so I took the only room they had. I also ordered a couple of optional services (champagne and handmade chocolate covered strawberries after dinner the first night, and an hour-long massage followed by champagne and a meat/cheese tray on the second day). I then received a call from Scott confirming the reservation and scheduling for the options. A little later on, I received an email from Anne offering us an upgrade to the Hickory room. Apparently they had a last minute cancellation, and since it was our anniversary, they offered it to us first. It was PERFECT!!! It had a switch-on fireplace, loveseat, and beautiful decor. Scott and Anne were amazing hosts, and the breakfast was spectacular! On our last day, we were the only ones in the house, so Anne asked us the day before what we liked for breakfast, and she made a custom breakfast for each of us! We WILL be returning! The Lovill is certainly more expensive than most hotels I've stayed at in Boone, but the obvious love that Scott and Anne put into their service make it really feel like going home.
5 on March 21, 2013
My wife and I stayed at the Lovill House from 3/15/13-3/17/13 and it was awesome! We celebrated my wife's birthday and enjoyed the company of some other great guests. The breakfasts were great and the Linville room was perfect. Also, make sure to take the time to meet Heidi the dog...she is something special!
5 on March 03, 2013
Best B&B me and my wife ever stayed at!!!
5 on February 27, 2013
We stayed in the Bristol Room and it was a wonderful room. The fire place was what sold us on the room. We will be staying again. The end is spot less everything is very clean an well cared for. The end keepers are very nice people who want to please you in avery way.
5 on February 24, 2013
You start with wonderful breakfast and a very cozy sitting room with fireplace to meet your neighbors. Our hosts know the area, great places to dine, and have loads of information on Boone and the area. Will definitely stay again in the future.
4.6 on February 22, 2013
A light snowfall throughout our Valentine's weekend set the stage for a quiet rest in this fantastic Inn. Scott and Anne were warm and welcoming throughout our stay. Everything was as good or better than described. Other guests helped make the weekend memorable.
4.6 on February 20, 2013
Very homey and cozy place. Our room was very nice and comfortable. I liked the size of the inn - just enough couples to talk and get to know one another. Not too large. Breakfasts were very tasty. Scott provided lots of help and info on things to do in the area and also history of the inn. Best of all, it snowed while we were there (we were hoping it would!) and when we arrived back at the inn at 10pm Sat. in a snow storm, Scott and Ann were waiting up for us to make sure we made it safely. They were out shoveling snow to make us a path to the house! Nice folks! We'll be back.

This was my first valentine's day with my boyfriend and it will be one i never forget. We spent a lovely night enjoying the ambiance and the beautiful scenery. the staff was lovely,very informative, and made us feel right at home. Everything was spotless and the food at breakfast was exquisite. it was very refreshing to sit down to breakfast with another couple at the same table and have a conversation with them and make new friends. we plan to return next year for valentines!

Stayed for an Anniversary. The room was clean, comfortable...Perfect. The Host's were very helpful and informative, and accomidating. went with a "special" package, it was very well done. I would recomend the Lovill House to anyone looking for a great stay up in then NC mountains- jeff k
4.8 on January 29, 2013
Stayed in the Bristol room 1/26/13 It was a 20th anniversary celebration. The house is clean, historically interesting, and the grounds were nature at it's best. Scott and Anne went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Simply put it could not have been a better time. The Lovill House, with a library, music, movies and fire places was one of the best places we have ever stayed...I got the extra's package and it was well priced and well presented. If you have a bad time here, It's your fault.....LOVED IT!
5 on January 27, 2013
We had the privilege of visiting The Lovill House Inn on 1/26/13. What a great and comfortable time we had. Scott and Anne are like the feathers in a down pillow...simply wonderful!!!!! I can't wait to visit again! Theresa and Anna, Greensboro, NC
4.4 on January 16, 2013
very friendly and accomodating hosts - the rooms were spacious, squeaky clean and very cozy. When you are there it's hard to believe you're right off of King Street! We felt like we'd spent longer than just a night
5 on January 15, 2013
The owners really did a great job making sure you had everything that You needed. The location was great for walking to town for lunch and a little shopping. We would stay again if we were ever in that area again.

Scott and Anne are some of the nicest people i have ever met. Thank you for all that you have done and will do in the future.

We are repeat visitors to the Lovill House. They always exceed our expectations.
5 on November 11, 2012
We stayed two nights at the Lovill house in October and just can't say enough about this lovely B&B. From the time we were greeted at the front door until we ended our visit, the proprietors, Scott and Anne (and Heidi, their beautiful dog), did everything they could to make us feel comfortable. We stayed in the Bristol Room, which had a huge fireplace, plenty of storage, and a very comfortable bed. The breakfasts were delicious and beverages were always available in the refrigerator. The grounds were beautiful and well-maintained and the wrap-around porch was a wonderful place to sit and relax. Anne and Scott suggested various restaurants for our evening meals and we took their advice to eat at Casa Rustica and at Char. The food was delicious at both places.
4.8 on October 23, 2012
My husband and I stayed at the Lovill House Inn for 2 nights in October 2012 and was so pleased with the stay. The moment you walk through the front door Scott and Anne make you feel so welcome. The home is beautiful and very clean. Did I mention the home was very clean! The morning coffee in front of the wood fireplace was so relaxing. Breakfast was excellent! Our room "Linville" was very large with a nice bathroom. The Lovill House is also close to the many attractions, but we were so glad we went in the Fall and enjoyed the trees in their full color on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I would recommend staying at the Lovill House Inn and will stay again on our next sourthern trip! D Starkey - Sistersville, WV
4.8 on October 23, 2012
The Inn Keepers were very personable and accomidating. Our visit was more pleasant of an experience than we could have wished for. We will be sure to return in the future as we can not see staying in a hotel with such comfort and atmosphere at our finger tips there at the Lovill House Inn.
5 on October 23, 2012
Great rooms and location, but the really big draw here is the innkeepers and the hospitality. Breakfast is always special and served communally at 8:30. The guests mingle beforehand and breakfast conversations are lively. If you want to know what's worth seeing here, or anywhere else the guests have travelled, this is the way to do it. Hat's off to Anne and Scott. This was our 3rd visit and there will certainly be many more.
4.6 on October 23, 2012
We visited the Lovill House Inn and Boone for a short weekend in hopes to see the October leaves at their finest. The B&B is located at the end of the main street making it a great location without being right in the middle of the busy Boone village. The grounds are beautiful and Scott the innkeeper is very helpful with new visitors to the area telling them about the area, things to see and of course the easiest ways to get there. We would love to go back and have an opportunity to spend more time and do more relaxing.
5 on October 22, 2012
Our sixth trip to The Lovill House Inn was just as lovely as our first with the exception that the breakfasts were even more delicious! The inn has always been so clean and beautifully kept with new furnishings, updated room decor and lovely gardens! The dahlias are gorgeous. There were always several scattered about in the inn and in our room as well. We love sharing breakfast with the other guests and letting the conversation drift to family, work, restaurants and activities in the area, and even recipes! Thanks to Anne and Scott, the innkeepers and our friends, we have always had great suggestions for fun! This year, they suggested a bicycle ride on The Virginia Creeper Trail because they had done it and enjoyed it so much. We loved it! All these years we have never tired of the area and really look forward to our visit! We enjoy sitting in the cozy living room reading and listening to music after dinner. It is truly our home away from home!

Beautiful grounds, lovely room. Very much appreciated access to beverages. Breakfast plentiful and good.

This was our first time in Boone and our first time at the Lovill House. It was our 40th wedding anniversary and Scott and Anne went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to make suggestions as to what we should go see and restaurants for dinner. We had a TOTALLY AWESOME experience and will definitely be back. THANK YOU, Scott and Anne, for a most memorable and enjoyable stay in Boone at the Lovill House B & B!!!

This was a short trip prior to my wife returning to work after major surgery. We could not have found a better place to stay than the Lovill House. Scott and Anne were perfect hosts. The house has a lot of history, our room was spotless and had all the comforts of home, and the breakfast was delicious. We definitely will visit again.

Our first time in a B and B...why have we not done this years ago? Better than home.

We had a great stay here with Scott and Anne, were made very welcome and would most certainly return if we came to North Carolina again. Regards artin and Belinda Collins
4.8 on September 05, 2012
The Innkeepers are very friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was delicious and the conversation encouraged by family-style seating was interesting. The garden is very beautiful!! Scott and Anne obviously spend almost as many hours pampering their flowers as they spend pampering their guests. I would happily stay again.
3.4 on August 29, 2012
Good location convenient to Boone but with a country setting. Host and hostess were very gracious and helpful. HIghly recommend this B+B
5 on August 27, 2012
My husband and I stayed at Lovill House for two days and wished we had more time to stay longer. Scott and Anne were great hosts and were very attentive, helping our stay in Boone a memorable one. If you would like a slice of quiet, a beautiful garden, a comfortable room, and engaging hosts Lovill House if for you.
5 on August 21, 2012
Beautiful home with a working gas fireplace in our room. The propietor's are friendly and efficient, and the other guests friendly. If you go, make sure you ask about the history of Heidi, their wonderful dog.
4.8 on August 17, 2012
An absolutely lovely home. Hosts hospitable to a fault. A most delicious breakfast. And a wonderfully comfortable and well-appointed room. The perfect place to wind up after a long day of travelling. AND some terriffic restaurants just a short drive away. If you stay at Lovill House, be sure to dine at Char.
5 on August 16, 2012
My husband and I recently experienced our first stay at the Lovill House Inn. We had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before then, and were lucky enough to be spoiled by the experience our first go round. The inn is located on lovely acreage, you don't hear a lot of noise from surrounding neighbors, and and Scott and Ann make you feel truly welcome. I can't recommend this place enough. We will definitely be back!
4.0 on August 10, 2012
I think it best to start with the critical, if only because there are few and they are simple in nature. While there are many comforts and built in amenities, the per night cost is a bit a high. There do not seem to be any advantageous discounts to most that would certainly benefit the operators such as a credit or discount for booking a certain amount in advance or filling last minute vacancies (that otherwise would have been unfilled for the night) or to frequent guests or those who provide multiple referrals (i.e. additional business) etc, etc.. The breakfast served, while tasty, is nothing that will shock and amaze you. The amenities such as beverages, media (dvds, videos, tv, etc), parking, and such are of a similar experience. While discounts are limited, for the right person, the price is a deal. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The common areas and rooms are not only tidy and clean but extremely relaxing. The kitchen is always stocked with beverages of all sorts from soda to beer to wine complimentary to current guests. There is also a library of DVDs and videos with a wide range of options that is free of charge. The caretakers/owners are pleasant and accommodating. While there are an array of materials to reference for possible local food and entertainment, they are also a valuable resource. The location itself makes it feel as if you are deep in the mountains but are within walking distance of the main thoroughfare and ASU. For those that don’t mind the cost, the proximity to Boone proper is prime. For guests such as us, avid readers, it is all we need. It has the feel and comforts of home but the solace and solitude of a resort. With rooms that have plushy furnishings, outdoor benches, swings, etc, and a fully furnished wrap around porch it is a reader’s or crafter’s haven! While we will probably only budget an occasional visit this is certainly a place we plan to stay again!

Wonderful inn with beautiful gardens and very gracious hosts

The innkeepers went out of their way to accommodate our needs. Beautiful gardens, exquisite breakfast. Wonderful!

We could not be happier with our stay at the Lovell House Inn. Our hosts (and Heidi) were a pleasure to get to know. We loved the room, the grounds, the food, and the people. We could not be happier.
5 on August 02, 2012
We loved having our own private room but eating breakfast with the house was great! We got to talk a lot with the other guests and bumped into them while we were downtown-- makes it feel less touristy. The innkeepers were so friendly and approachable. We can't wait to make this an annual vacation!
4.6 on July 25, 2012
Very comfortable room; convenient to downtown Boone. The food was delicious. Scott and Anne make you feel so welcome.We didn't have much time to explore the grounds but the dahlias were so pretty. We look forward to our next visit.
4.6 on July 24, 2012
The Lovill House Inn was a delight to find and exceeded our expectations. Boone's oldest home is rich in history and beautifully restored. Exquisite gardens, apple trees with deer feeding on the fruit, rocking chairs on the front porch, hardwood floors, comfortable beds with luxury linen, private yet very convenient to downtown, and very gracious hosts all make for a delightful stay. We will go back.
5 on July 18, 2012
Hosts were very friendly and wonderful. The gardens surrounding the home are so beautiful. The room was completely clean and nice. I'm very picky so sometimes have to clean rooms before I feel comfortable, but I didn't have to do that here!! Food was perfect. Complimentary drinks. Great location. Very special place and weekend and can't wait to go back again!!
5 on July 17, 2012
Even though the weather was uncooperative (it rained quite a bit), our visit was a success due to the hospitality of the Lovill House Inn. We recommend it highly and will visit again when we can. Thank you Scott and Anne for your hospitality.
4.6 on July 16, 2012
This is a lovely bed and breakfast. It is one of the oldest buildings in Boone with a wonderful wrap-around porch. The owners Scott and Anne are friendly and very helpful and Anne cooks up a delicious breakfast and is attentive to dietary restrictions. Be aware that it is close to town -- which is convenient but there is some road noise. The gardens and grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in away from home and the rooms seemed to be sound-proofed. Highly recommended!
5 on July 15, 2012
Our stay at Lovill House made an outstanding weekend most excellent! We loved the Inn, the grounds are stunning, and Scott and Anne are wonderfully gracious hosts. Our son is applying to App State next year. We have definitely found where we'll stay on every visit!
5 on July 11, 2012
We had a wonderful time at Lovill House Inn. Great Location, the grounds and gardens were kept up impeccably. We saw bunnies everyday and even a beautiful deer. Scott and Anne were wonderful hosts and treated everyone like family. The best thing is the story of Heidi, the luckiest dog in the world....
5 on July 11, 2012
Travellers from around the world stay at the Lovill House and I now know why. The Inn and grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Anne and Scott were wonderful hosts and very helpful in answering all my questions. The Inn is located at the south end of Boone convenient to routes that take you to many sightseeing locations. I would highly recommend the Lovill House Inn and will certainly return.
3.4 on July 05, 2012
We enjoyed our stay Lovill House and if we are in the area again would certainly stay there. I do have a little problem with the star rating as my stay there met my expectations and as far as I'm concerned that is what I expect and am happy with. Perhaps "Met my expectations" should be four stars.
5 on June 28, 2012
Beautiful old house, conveniently (and quietly) located at the outskirts of Boone, very close to major attractions (Blue Ridge Parkway!). With innkeepers like Anne & Scott nothing can go wrong: they provide you with the most detailed and complete directions from the first email-contact on and they're experts on the region, know the best attractions, the best restaurants (try nearby Vidalia!), and are great cooks as well (great breakfast). Above all this: nice, clean, airy and big rooms, every inch a quality inn! We'll be back! Wim,Serge, Natan Brussels, Belgium
5 on June 24, 2012
It couldn't have been a more perfect weekend. Our hosts were gracious and attentive. The weekend could not have been complete, however, without Heidi. :)

My wife and I enjoyed a two night stay at Lovill House Inn while attending our son's freshman orientation at Appalachian State University. Our only regret is that the faculty at App State kept us so busy that we didn't get as much time at the property as we would have liked. But...we already have reservations for August over the weekend of our son's "move-in date"...and will then take full advantage! The innkeepers could not have been more kind and caring...Kevin & Debbie Bakewell

Peaceful, charming, elegant. Scott and Anne were wonderful hosts. I don’t think we could have found a better place to spend our 29th anniversary.

This place is wonderful! The Inn was beautiful, the breakfast was delectable, the room was outstanding, but best of all, were the innkeepers Scott and Anne. I made plans to propose to my fiancée in the NC Mountains sometime in early 2012. After thoroughly searching around the web and asking for recommendations, I decided to give the Lovill House Inn a call. I called the inn later into the evening on a Wednesday night and Scott answered. I told him my plans and from the beginning, he was very helpful and jovial. Quickly into our call, I knew this was the place. Scott and I concocted our plans and over the next few weeks, he helped me make our wonderful weekend happen. Later into a Friday evening, we arrived at the inn and Scott gave us a wonderful tour. During the tour, we were taken in by the beautiful house. He made us feel right at home and helped us to our room. We both loved the place right away. Both weekend mornings, Anne prepared a scrumptious breakfast. There were plenty of options and we left full and happy. Scott and Anne are incredibly interesting and have many wonderful stories to share. They encourage guests to meet and great. They treat everyone with respect and provide outstanding customer service. Both provided my fiancée and me with great advice and tips about the area. We look forward to our next visit back to the Inn for the wonderful time as well as to see our friends Scott and Anne. -Jack Michel (4/23/2012)

We have stayed at several B&B all across the East Coast. The Lovill House Inn was the best one that we have stayed at so far. Scott and Anne were awesome and great cooks and just provided a very nice and comfortable stay. Sterling, Va

Lovill house is an amazing B&B the history to the town of Boone and the House is very interesting. The Bristol Room we stayed in was fantastic very quaint and cozy with its own wood burning fire place for a wonderful romantic experience. The servive is supurb Scott, Ann and their staff are wonderful and extremely friendly making everyone feel comfortable and at home. The place is spotless, the livingroom with its grand fire place and wonderful light hearted music playing makes for a great meeting place and very relaxing. The dining experience well what can we say the food Anne prepares is wonderful she is an amazing cook. The fruit the serve with breakfast is extremely fresh and the atmosphere is great. I highly recommend Lovill House to anyone wanted to have one of the best experiences they will ever have at a B&B, and there prices are very reasonable we will be returning first chase we get.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for New Years Eve and were extremely happy with not only the service and the Bristol Room, but we were also surprised to find how close we were to downtown Boone and King St. Lovill House is about a 10 minute walk to shopping and dining. It most definitely made for a convenient New Years celebration. It's worth mentioning the Bristol Room is filled with charm and history, being that the Lovill House is the oldest house in Boone, NC. The wood burning fireplace was a plus for us and the main reason we chose this room above all others. It's nostalgic charm and cozy feel made getting up for breakfast extremely hard, but worth it. Scott and Ann are lovely innkeepers and I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for something not too tucked away for some city slicker action but just enough to enjoy 10 acres of exploring. Most definitely a home away from home.

We recently stayed at the Lovill House and it was an incredible experience. The Inn is incredible with beautiful grounds, wonderful atmosphere and top notch hospitality. We arrived early and received a map to our Christmas Tree location. When we returned our room was ready, received a tour of the grounds and even saw a 6 point buck outside the back door. We will be going back again and hope to make it a yearly event. Loved it!!!

Scott and Anne are fabulous hosts and went out of their way to make our stay relaxing and memorable. Anne went above and beyond by preparing food to accommodate my special diet. I was surprised and especially touched. No bed & breakfast that I have stayed at before has done that for me!

I can't thank them enough!!!! I will go back and send as many people as I can!

We have stayed at many B&B's over the past 20 years. The Lovill House Inn is a great location for an APPState football weekend. Close enough to downtown to walk, but secluded enough for quiet relaxation. We liked having the buffett breakfast for choices. It was also nice to come down to breakfast have a cup of coffee first and be ablt to chat with other quest. Scott and Anne are very nice innkeepers!!!!1

We just returned from a trip to Boone and a visit to the Lovill House Inn. From the moment we arrived, Scott and Anne treated us as old friends and were happy to help us with information on restaurants, outings, etc. The breakfasts were outstanding, and there was a choice of light fare (yogurt, fruit) and/or egg dishes and breads. We also got a tip from Scott for a great deli which packed sandwiches for our hiking trip. We will definitely be back. Bruce and Pat

This was the first time here and we loved it! Scott and Anne are really great! The Lovill House is beautiful, and being the oldest house in Boone. We will stay here again on our next vist to the mountains! Harold & Carol

We stayed in the Spring House for a weekend getaway to celebrate our 1st year anniversary. The small cottage met our expectations and then some. Great privacy while also providing us all of the amenities of the main house. The small touches provided by Scott and Anne, such as chocolate-covered strawberries and heart-shaped waffles to celebrate our anniversary was icing on the cake. Will definitely stay here again.
4.4 on October 20, 2011
Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, super nice host!! Will be returning soon.

We will definitely visit the Lovill House Inn again. Scott and Anne are gracious hosts, and the accomodations were perfect!

Wish we could have stayed longer. Scott and Anne were delightful. The house was beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. We hope to go again. Janice and Clyde Hollis

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend. It was our first stay at the Lovill House Inn. Scott and Anne are so welcoming. Their attention to detail is impeccable and Anne's breakfasts are a treat to eat. Our room was quite spacious and had all of the comforts of home. We will be back to stay again whenever we're in Boone visiting our daughter at ASU.
4.6 on October 16, 2011
Always good to be back with some warm welcomes from Scott and Ann who became friends over the years. The food is fabulous and you get to meet some very interesting people. The rooms are always very clean. The best place to stay in Boone. AMG

Warm, comforting atmosphere. Helpful and welcoming hosts. In the fresh mountain air. Just what I needed!

Beautiful home - great location - innkeepers were average, didn't feel comfortable in the main house area, always felt as though we were being watched - breakfast was just average
4.4 on October 05, 2011
We recently stayed at the Lovill House Inn located in Boone, NC. Whether we need to just 'get away' from it all, are travelling, or on a vacation, our first choice for a place to stay is at a bed and breakfast. The high quality of service, the rooms, dining and atmosphere are what you expect when staying at a bed and breakfast and the Lovill House Inn is no exception. Our hosts, Scott and Anne, were very gracious and accomodating (as we needed to check in earlier than the allotted time). We highly recommend staying at the Lovill House Inn - you won't be disappointed!
4.6 on September 22, 2011
We found the innkeepers to be warm, welcoming and full of information they were willing to share. We felt they really cared about us being there and enjoying our visit to the Boone area to the fullest. Their desire to make us feel at home greatly surpassed our expectations and we would recommend them to all who wished to visit that area of our state.
5 on August 31, 2011
We had planned a weekend in the mountains and could not have been more pleased with our choice of places to stay. Everything was perfect, from the rooms, to the beautiful grounds, the breakfast, and the warm hospitality of the innkeepers, Scott and Anne. The location is great, right near downtown Boone but far enough away to escape the noise.
5 on August 30, 2011
We enjoyed our stay at Lovill House Inn. The hosts were very helpful with dinner suggestions and things to do in the area, the breakfasts were amazing, and the inn and grounds are beautiful. We have been to many b&b's and this was the first one that had wine available for the guests in the kitchen fridge!
4.8 on August 22, 2011
We had a great time in Boone! Our stay was wonderful and we were very pleased with the room. The Innkeepers were very friendly and the food was yummy!
3.2 on August 22, 2011
Very clean, host was quite solicitous, road noise in the room I had was pretty constant, mattress and pillows were very comfortable, wireless for the iPad was hard to find, gardens and property were totally charming. Value would have been better if I had arrived earlier and stayed later to enjoy both the property, the breakfast and the people more. The large porch with swings and cosy chairs was peaceful and inviting. I would stay there again and would recommend the place to others.
4.8 on August 12, 2011
The Lovill House went above and beyond our expectations. Scott and Anne were warm and gracious hosts, the rooms were delightful and the food was spectacular. It has a beautiful garden; you simply can't go wrong!
4.6 on August 10, 2011
This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. Loved the Lovill House Inn and would definitely go back!
5 on August 07, 2011
We just got back Friday from a wonderful 3-night stay at the Lovill House Inn in Boone. The location was great--only a few blocks from downtown Boone but sitting on the front porch felt like you were a million miles away from the world. The heirloom flowers in the gardens were gorgeous and perfect for a historic home. Scott and Ann were the best of hosts, giving us enough attention to make us feel welcome and at home but giving us enough space to feel free to enjoy their home. The breakfasts were delicious and we had such a good time with the other guests that we found ourselves lingering at the dining room table each morning. We hope that we will get the chance to visit Lovill House Inn again.

Absolutely a fantastic B and B and very nice and knowledgeable innkeepers. The accomodations were top notch and the breakfasts were super.

This is by far the BEST ROOM we have stayed in. It was roomy and extremely clean. A very enjoyable and relaxing inn.
4.6 on July 27, 2011
The Lovill House Inn is surrounded by colorful, well maintained gardens, giving a peaceful and serene feeling to the property. Ann and Scott, the owners, are available for area information and are very helpful without being obtrusive. Delicious breakfasts. Highly recommend this B&B!
5 on July 22, 2011
Scott and Anne are excellent hosts. The house is beautiful and very comfortable and the breakfasts are superb. Would love to stay there again.
4.4 on July 15, 2011
My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Scott and Ann staying 3 nights at the Inn. Wonderful time, outstanding food from Ann and great attention to our comfort from Scott. Very helpful in providing directions to attractions and dinner opportunities. The Inn itself was set nicely and very quiet in the evenings where we spent time rocking on the porch and enjoying the comfortable evenings. I would recommend the Inn to anyone looking for accomodations close to areas of interest but set apart from the main flow of traffic and congestion. Scott and Ann are excellent hosts and work hard to ensure your stay exceeds your expectations. Kerry & Debbie, Fuquay-Varina, NC.

4.8 on June 13, 2011
We were celebrating our anniversary and spent two days at the Lovill House. Scott and Anne go above and beyond in every aspect starting with the breakfast which were both outstanding. They know so many things to do in the area; they can keep you busy your entire stay. Don't know where to have dinner? Don't worry, they have menus for all the restaurants so you can sit in the living room and browse them. Anne and Scott are great. We had a great time.
3.2 on June 11, 2011
We stayed in the separate cottage, which was quite cozy. We enjoyed the superb breakfast!
5 on June 08, 2011
Just the best place! In the city, but feels like it is miles away from anywhere. The pictures don't do the inn justice. it is immaculate and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was just fantastic and served in such a warm and personal manner. Scott and Anne are the best-so personal and helpful in getting the most out of your trip to the Boone area. If you are looking for a B&B in the Boone area-stop looking and book your room here!
5 on June 07, 2011
We stayed here 3 nights last week and loved it. The innkeepers are friendly and helpful. The inn was spotless, and the food delicious. Highly recommended !!
4.4 on June 04, 2011
How can anyone stay here and not love it? You are greeted warmly by the owner, fed well, sleep soundly, surrounded by beauty, and all for a reasonable price. The inn keepers are so charming, knowledgeable, and accommodating. That, alone, is worth the trip. Additionally though, the historical house is conducive to relaxation. You can sit on the porch rockers with a book and a glass of wine. You can listen to music, watch a movie (they have a huge collection), help yourself to a variety of beverages in the fridge, walk the gardens, sit by the fire, or head out to the zillions of possible things to do in the area. My elderly father and I stayed there while visiting my son at App State. We couldn't have picked a better retreat. My son was welcomed like family by the innkeepers when he stopped in to pick us up. Stay there. You won't be disappointed.
3.6 on June 02, 2011
Peaceful stay, close to town, innkeepers are warm people who are a wealth of information. Would recommend this Inn to everyone.
5 on May 22, 2011
There's not a better place to stay in the heart of the High Country than the Lovill House. What a wonderful, peaceful, enjoyable time we spent getting to know Scott and Anne and walking around the breathtaking grounds. Of course Boone and the surrounding area was spectacular but what made our 3-night stay rate the best was feeling so at home with Scott and Anne. Did I mention the wonderful breakfast feasts that were prepared...we will be back many times. Scott and Anne thank you for a wonderful anniversary filled with treasured memories; our stay was beyond our dreams!! Tim and Rhonda
4.2 on May 14, 2011
We loved our visit to the Lovill House Inn. Scott and Anne are outstanding hosts--very familiar with the area, willing to share information, and warm and welcoming. The grounds are beautiful with lovely flower gardens, a stream right outside the inn, and a gazebo with a porch swing next to the stream to help you relax and enjoy a quiet morning. The wrap-around porch is wonderful with an abundance of rocking chairs and tables. The location of the inn is downtown Boone, but it's hidden behind a wall of trees so you would never know you were near King St. But that makes it a perfect, centrally located place to use for day trips and close to downtown restaurants and shopping. Thank you, Scott and Anne, for your generous hospitality. Sincerely, Lynne and Norm from Michigan.
4.8 on May 08, 2011
We were celebrating our anniversary and had never been to Boone. I had found the Lovill House Inn by researching online and decided, "why not?" I am so thankful that we did! Scoot & Anne took such great care of us and made sure we were as comfortable as if we were at our very own home. They made sure we knew the area and gave us guided instrutions and information about the area. We also were impressed that they gave a military discount. I just hope we get a chance to visit Boone again and if we do you will find us at the Lovill House Inn!
5 on April 28, 2011
We could not have asked for a better place to end our trip to NC. Anne and Scott are the best innkeepers and the whole place is just lovely. Breakfast was outstanding, tasty, delicious, with a bit of everything. Our room on the second floor was beautiful with a very comfortable bed and a nice bathroom.
5 on April 25, 2011
This is the quintessential B&B experience. Anne and Scott are wonderful hosts and great prople. They are very helpful with finding restaurants, things to do, and making your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The layout and breakfast setup encourage the interraction of guests and make for an enjoyable and friendly visit.
4.2 on March 27, 2011
This historic house was very beautiful. We especially liked the wormy chestnut (saved from renovation of the house) door facings. The grounds were inviting to look at and walk around. There were many personal touches such as heated coffee mugs and turn down service. We couldn't ask for a cleaner inn--our bedroom and bath were immaculate. The hosts were available to answer our questions and help whenever needed. We especially enjoyed the full breakfast each morning.
4.6 on March 16, 2011
We had a most enjoyable and pleasant stay with Scott and Anne. They were very gracious and hospitable and full of information on the historic property and the town. The breakfasts were well planned and encourgaed guests to share in conversation. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone. We were there during March but we guess it would be even better in spring, summer and fall..... Margot & Gary.. Delaware
4.8 on March 07, 2011
We stayed in the Cottage behind the main house and it was imaculant with a small fireplace inside and a wonderfull view from the porch! We experienced great southern hospitality by the inn keepers themselves! We had a very tastefull breakfast waiting for us the next morning with plenty left for secounds if wanted and fresh brewed ground coffee! I would recommend the Lovill house inn to anyone wanting that taste of home feel with the southern hospitality as well.
5 on March 01, 2011
This was our 6th visit to the Lovill House Inn...obviously we love it. We look forward to the welcoming greetings and hugs from innkeepers (and now friends) Scott and Anne Peecook when we arrive. The home has a comfortable feel...the big front porch, the beautifully decorated rooms, the comfortable living room, the delicious home-cooked breakfast...and so clean! The gardens are lovely and so well-kept...a lot of time and love goes into making the yard pretty in all seasons. It is a great place to call home as you explore the surrounding areas. Scott and Anne are attentive to the needs of their guests and enjoy serving in any way they can. We look forward to our next visit...
4.6 on February 02, 2011
Anne and Scott were perfect Innkeepers and very knowledgeable about the area and changing weather conditions. The Inn was beautifully appointed, and every thought was for the comfort of its guests. We enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again.

Scott and Anne are wonderful, gracious hosts. The atmosphere could not be more relaxing. The breakfast is by far the BEST I have had! We look forward to our next stay.

We pullled into Boone at 4PM on Thanksgiving day - no idea where to stay. Punched my smartphone looking for a B&B - with great wonder, the Lovill house I did see. They asked if we would join them for a Thanksgiving feast - we replyed, of course we'll help you carve that beast! It was the BEST thanksgiving diner to date!!! Make your reservations for Christmas and don't be late!!!! Thank you Scott and Anne - surely you will see us again.
5 on November 30, 2010
From the moment we arrived at the Lovill House Inn to the moment we left, it was a great experience. We arrived the day after Thanksgiving and were greated by Scott, Anne and the lingering smell of a big family dinner. Scott and Anne were extremely friendly and helped us with everything we needed. We only stayed one night and they treated us like we had been there for a week. The room was spotless and the bed was great. Loved the turn-down service while we were at dinner. Now comes the food. Breakfast was delicious. Every thing was home-cooked and great. There is no question that we will be back to stay at the Inn and visit Scott and Anne again. Matt and Rachel, KY

My wife and I decided to get away for the Thanksgiving holiday seeing how we had our family gathering the weekend before. Since the Lovill House Inn was offering a Thanksgiving dinner package we decided to opt in. What a great choice that was!. The meal was fantastic, everything you would expect for a Thanksgiving feast. Anne and Scott (innkeepers) joined the guests for the meal making everyone feel like family. Breakfast was also great, very attentive service. Anne is a terrific cook; Scott is a wealth of information. This couple knows how to treat their guests. The room was very spacious, clean, comfortable. We would definitely return!

Our son is a Freshman at App St. Our stay was the first time we had been up to see him. The Lovill is a great location - close to everything. From now on, we will be staying at the Lovill House Inn.
5 on November 15, 2010
My wife and I went to the Lovill House Inn for a weekend of peace and quiet. We were very impressed with Scott's knowledge of the area and appreciated his recommendations for food and fun. Anne did a great job with breakfast and it was definitely the home cooked meal we were looking for.
5 on November 15, 2010
We came up for a long weekend and the Lovill House Inn was wonderful. We stayed in the Spring House and loved the fireplace. Breakfast was delicious in the morning and a great way to start the day. I am looking forward to coming back in the spring to see all the beautiful gardens around the inn.
5 on November 14, 2010
We have visited many times at the Lovill House Inn and found it to be our 'home away from home'! All the rooms are uniquely decorated inviting warmth and serenity. This past visit we stayed two nights in the roomy Bristol Suite with its comfortable king bed and wood-burning fireplace! Scott and Anne have always been courteous, attentive hosts catering to our every need and have put much thought and effort into presenting tasty gourmet breakfasts as well. We love staying at the Lovill House Inn where we are treated like family and will definitely be back for another visit! Ken and Cheryl

Upon arrival, the innkeeper met us and gave a thorough tour and instructions on using the facilities. The Inn was clean, nicely decorated, and well organized. However, there was no "hosted social hour" as advertised (we were invited to help ourselves to soft drinks or box wine, which was nearly empty) nor was there a fire in the fireplace as promised during breakfast. Only a couple acres of the 11-acre estate were available for guests to enjoy, the rest being an undeveloped ridge.
I would like to say I am sorry. The night you stayed with us was my birthday. Our son and his bride booked a room to surprise me, and I dropped the ball in not recognizing that the social hour was important to you. Concerning the fireplace the next morning, I believe that no one was in the living room by 8:20 so we did not light the fire since breakfast was at 8:30. The layout of our property is 11 acres, 8 are wooded and 3 are groomed. You can walk up to the waterfall, sit in the gazebo swing or enjoy the picnic table under the walnut tree. Hopefully, the next time you come you can stay longer and fully enjoy what we have to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back.
5 on November 08, 2010
We had a wonderful time at the Lovill House Inn. To stay in a B & B and have the opportunity to meet other and converse with other guests makes the experience very memorable. Our hosts did a spectacular job of making our stay enjoyable. I'm anxious to spend time there again soon. David Blakeslee
4.0 on October 31, 2010
Stayed two night in the lenoir room. It was very clean and comfortable but a little noisy due to the fact of the house being in close proximity to the highway but nothing that kept me awake at night. Breakfast was good but a little regimented, at 0830 the bell rings and you better be their. All in all it was a nice stay and we'd recomend it.
5 on October 23, 2010
My wife and I truly enjoyed our several stays at this wonderful Home away from Home. Scott and Anne go out of their way to assure the stay is one to remember. The food is GREAT, the beds are wonderful, and the feeling you are with people who care and enjoy the good things in life says it all. Our son stayed with us the first trip and really enjoyed it. Our daughter is a student at ASU so we feel like we are at home while visiting her. We can hardly wait for our next visit. Do yourself a favor and stay with our friends Scott and Anne. Relax and enjoy our little secret. Steve and Beth Thrower, Morehead City N.C.

My fiance' and I stayed here midway through my R&R from Afghanistan. I've stayed with Scott and Anne before, but it was Dawn's first time. As always, from the first contact to make reservations, to the drive through the Blue Ridge area, to the wonderful "presentation" of the home as we pulled into the parking area, to Scott's warm and insightful tour of the home, to the clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms, to Anne's amazingly tasty breakfast cooking ... I could go on for a long time, but suffice it to say that the Lovill House Inn - not to mention the gracious Innkeepers - is worth whatever detour you need to take in order to get there. But it can't be called much of a detour when you consider the locale! Boone is in the heart of some of the very best destinations that the Blue Ridge Parkway has to offer. Lovill House Inn is, and will continue to be, a destination unto itself for me whenever I plan a vacation or need to just get away for a few days.
5 on October 10, 2010
We have been coming to the Lovill House Inn for 12 years and I plan to come back every year as long as we can. The Inn is great and the Innkeepers are super. We love the rooms and have stayed in them all. We try to rotate and spend equal time per room. Everything is always clean and neat and they always provide that little extra touch that most B&B's don"t. The flowers were especially beautiful on the grounds this fall. They always manage to find your room too. Fresh flowers are perfect and add that touch you never expect. Food is flawless and I am glad we don't live close or I would be packing on the pounds. Always a great selection and here again, if special needs are requested, they are met. We personally love it all! Don't miss a chance to stay here and enjoy the beauty and the great Inn. We miss you already and can't wait to book our next stay. Thanks

The Lovill House Inn provided us a very cozy quaint home base for our six day vacation within the mountains of western North Carolina where we could return each afternoon for relaxation, sipping wine and planning our activity for the next day. Each new day's morning breakfast was extraordinary, offering a unique new menu carefully crafted to ensure variety throughout the entire week. We particularly enjoyed the pleasure of spending our nights in the sping house cottage where we could enjoy our early morning solitude and coffee. Scott and Anne's wonderful personnalities and interaction with their guests are the signature that wraps the entire package into a perfect experience. If you plan to stay in the Boone area give yourself the gift of staying at the Lovill House Inn.
3.6 on September 30, 2010
We arrived Friday evening around 6 pm to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. The owner gave us the name of a good restaurant, Char's, where we began our celebration. And of course, we topped off our meal with ice cream at Custard Depot! Delish! Saturday morning we ate a delicious meal and let our food settle while rocking in the chairs out on the wrap around front porch. Then we took a picnic and did a 3 mile hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway. After our nap back at the B&B, we went to The Red Onion for dinner and had more ice cream over at Scoops! Anybody see a common theme here? Sunday morning was rainy, but our breakfast was wonderful and then we went into town to do some last minute shopping. We really enjoyed our stay at the Lovill House Inn. Scott and Anne are wonderful hosts!

We spent a long weekend In Boone, N.C. recently at the Loville House Inn. We couldn't ask for a warmer greeting from our Host and Hostess. They were available at all times to help us in every way. Although we thought we would be in the country, this inn is actually on the edge of town, tucked back on a side street. Very convenient . We enjoyed eating at the big tables with all the other guests in the mornings, but would enjoy some flexiblility on the time. 8:30 is early on a rainy Saturday morning. Our room had a wood burning fireplace and a sofa. So cozy. Our mattress on the otherhand could use an upgrade. Not really bad, but not a pillow top . New pillows, maybe a few down pillows, would have been welcome. There is no airconditioning, but every room has a powerful little window fan, and a ceiling fan. We were comfortable, but wondered about the people in the upstairs rooms. We would probably return ...when the mattresses are upgraded. Boone is a great little college town and so close to so many other attractions in the Western N.C. mountains.
Even though this is a favorite room of guests and we have had many compliments on the bed of late, we appreciate your concerns and have taken action to improve the sleep experience in the room.
4.2 on September 26, 2010
Hosts were welcoming and thorough about explaining the Inn. Plenty of information available about the surrounding area. Very hospitable about drinks etc from fridge. Room was a good size and very comfortable. Parking was by side of the Inn and off road so no problems. Breakfast was tasty and service was cheerful and friendly. Would strongly recommend a stay in the Lovill House Inn.

My wife and I had never stayed in a B&B before but wanted to to escape the NC coastal heat and do something special for her 52 birthday. I did some internet research into the Boone, NC area nd came up with the Lovill House as my choice. I could not have been more right. Scott and Anne were the best ! We felt as if we were family back in town for a reunion. We could not have felt more at home in their beautiful inn. It was as if we were in our own own home with full run of the house and nothing to do but enjoy. What a lovely porch, breakfasts were perfectly prepared bt Anne and Scott saw to our every need. The room, house and grounds were absolutely spotless and beautiful, evenb fired up the gas fireplace a few times! We will definitely stay again when in the Boone area. Never had a better time or nicer place to stay and I have been to many 5 star big name hotels. And I got lots of points with the wife for a great birthday choice !! Don't miss this great home. We're now sold on the B&B experience. Thank you so much !

Scott and Anne were great and the Inn was beautiful. The breakfasts were awesome and the innkeepers were very helpful with suggestions of where to eat and things to do.
5 on August 21, 2010
We just spent four days at the Lovill House Inn B & B. Although we have been staying at B & B's for many years, this one ranks among the very best. Anne & Scott made every effort to make our stay memorable, and they succeeded beyond our expectations. The Boone-Blowing Rock area has much to offer, but if you are looking for quiet and solitude, you can find that, as well. We have reservations for a fall leaves visit, and can't wait.
5 on August 17, 2010
From the moment we drove into the flower lined driveway we felt at home. The Lovell House owners were right there and went to work making us feel welcome. It was comfortable, clean convenient and just what we needed. Thanks to Scott and Ann for the perfect stay. Next time it will be a longer stay.
5 on August 07, 2010
Could not have been more pleased. Our plan was to use Lovill House as a center from which to "tour" around the mountains during the week. However, we found the Innkeepers, the Inn & staff, and its grounds so delightful that we seldom left its confines. As honeymooners, we enjoyed the warm, yet unobtrusive, hospitality, the always available assistance (I locked us out of the cabin late one evening), the to-die-for breakfasts, the overall beauty of the Inn and its people, its proximity to every restaurant and place we did visit, mingling with the other guests; it just couldn't have been any better. Our desire is to return again and again. The Peecooks are new freinds. Ted & Jan

We stayed in the cottage, and it was very pleasant. The innkeepers were always available and very good at assisting us in whatever our plans were for the day. We found the furnishings comfortable. In fact, I wrote about the inn in my blog after the trip. http://riverwalkpics.blogspot.com/2010/07/butterflies-bees-bears-and-birds-at.html The scenery and nature are what we went to Boone for, but we received much more with the very comfortable accommodations. In fact, we didn't have to travel far for nature with the magnificent gardens right outside the cottage door where there were numerous butterflies and songbirds every day. Very nice place to spend our anniversary. David and Elizabeth
5 on July 23, 2010
My stay here for two days was perfect. This inn is very well kempt and tended to. The rooms are well apportioned and CLEAN. The grounds are beautiful and that big old porch! The innkeepers Scott and Anne are exactly the kind of hosts one thinks of when considering a great B&B experience. They are charming, informative and see to it that your stay is a memorable one. Just what the doctor ordered.

We have stayed here now several times. When going to the Boone area we automatically book at the Lovill House. There is no reason to go elsewhere, a beautifull house,great breakfasts, all your needs taken care of. However, the the best reason is Scott and Anne, you couldn't find more accomodating hosts. Thank you, John and Nancy Carnegie, Wilmington, N.C.

Good location, lovely room, great breakfast. But what really sets this B & B apart are Scott and Anne. They are the quintessential innkeepers. They are warm, friendly, and amazingly hospitable with so many really nice touches to make your stay exceptional.
5 on April 19, 2010
It was our anniversary so on a whim we decided to treat ourselves to a B & B in place of the chain hotels we usually frequent. We could not have been more delighted! The room was lovely with attention to every detail. Breakfast was scrumptious. The grounds were gorgeous, with the wraparound porch overlooking flower beds, a waterfall and with several other places to sit and simply contemplate the goodness of God. It was evident that the innkeepers, Scott and Anne Peecook intended for each guest to feel like a cherished family member...which is exactly how we felt. We strongly recommend the Lovill House Inn for anyone traveling in the Boone area. Maybe you will even see us there......... we definitely plan to visit again.
5 on April 18, 2010
Our experience at the Lovill House Inn was EXACTLY what we were looking for. We were immediately made to feel at home there, and were welcomed warmly by the innkeepers. Our room was inviting and cozy. We also enjoyed the beautiful gardens and surrounding property with the nice little touches like a gazebo swing, a hammock, and rocking chairs on the porch. Scott and Anne Peecook were so kind and welcoming and really helped to make the entire experience perfect.

My husband and I arrived on a cold, snowy night to a warm welcome into a beautiful, comfortable room, all amenities, and awoke to a delicious breakfast with good conversation. We can't wait for our next opportunity to visit Lovill House Inn.

Scott and Anne have a wonderful bed and breakfast! We were pleasantly surprised with the service and the cleanliness of the rooms. Scott and Anne are a pleasure to be around. They made the inn feel like a home away from home and we look forward to another trip to visit them next year. Semper Fidelis!

My husband & I had the pleasure of staying at the Lovell House Inn while traveling to West Virginia and along the way, this lovely B&B is tucked away in a quaint and semi-private manner. We found it to be peaceful and warm, relaxing enough to feel like home! What a lovely place to get away from it all! Scott & Anne were gracious inn keepers that made us feel welcome while allowing us our privacy. I highly recommend that you stay at the Lovell House Inn on your next adventure. You will be glad you did! The Buckners S.C.

We booked the Lovill House Inn as we were tired of the cold atmosphere of the typical hotel. We were visiting our son at Appalachian State for the weekend. The Lovill House Inn was very nice. The innkeeper, Scott Peecock, was welcoming and gave a thorough tour of the house. It was warm and inviting. The room in which we were staying was large with a separate bath, and a gas fireplace; a beautiful feature. The house was very quiet for our entire stay. The only complaint was the bed was a little too soft and we both had somewhat of a backache when we returned home. We would have also preferred a king size bed, but the rooms with the king beds were not available. We would return to the Lovill House Inn for another visit.

I've been meaning to write this review for a year - my husband and I went to Lovill House for our honeymoon in October 2008, and it was just perfect. Scott and Anne can give recommendations and exact directions for whatever your heart desires - including, for us, the perfect 5-mile scenic hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway and "the best way to see the 'face' of Grandfather Mountain." We highly recommend their "stress reduction package" with massage. The rooms (we stayed in Lenoir) are old-fashioned, lovely and romantic but with every comfort; the gardens are gorgeous, breakfast was delicious and friendly, the whole feel is elegant without being stuffy. We really liked that Anne and Scott have their own separate "quarters" so it feels less like walking in on someone's home than a typical B & B does. Just perfect. You'll love it. - Rachel and Kevin

Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway South I had a absolutely pleasant stay. The room was cosy, the open fireplace helped a lot with autumn in the mountains. Breakfast was varying every day and a great experience.

We stayed at the Lovill House Inn for two nights in August 2009. Perfect location in Boone, NC. The room we occupied was called "The Spring House" which is a small cottage behind the house. It was lovely! Very CLEAN and cozy. The grounds are covered with flowers and the front porch of the house was delightful to sit on every morning while drinking coffee waiting for the fabulous breakfast that the Innkeepers prepare each morning. They do a wonderful job making you feel welcome and special. Can't wait to return! Thank you Scott and Anne!

Lovill House is owned and operated by a couple who is meticulous in all aspects of running a B&B from the details of appearance, to creating the "down home" feeling one would expect from a Southern B&B experience. It is tastefully decorated keeping the elegant historic look and feel combined with upgraded and modern accommodations. Location in a serene setting set back from the main highway creates a perfect venue to enjoy a quiet evening on the expansive wrap around deck with a glass of provided wine; or a cup of coffee provided in hot mugs in the early morning. Breakfast featured unique culinary tastes that presented traditional breakfast foods in new and different dishes! Would highly recommend and we hope to visit again in the near future.

Lovill House was delightful. The location was close to a major road and suffered from traffic noise, but the room was good and grounds were spectacular. The innkeepers were very efficient and attentive. Midway through our stay, my wife had a short hospital stay, and the innkeepers were very concerned and helped us in every way. I would recommend the Lovill House to anyone who wants to stay in Boone.
5 on July 16, 2009
our hosts, Scott and Ann, saw to every need. Very helpful in planning our days. We felt like we were leaving 'family' when we started home. Their home was our home that week!

We discovered Lovill House Inn when we came to Boone with our daughter to look at Appalachian State in March 2009. She fell in love with the college and Boone and our family truly enjoyed the hospitality provided by Scott and Anne. The Inn is lovely, relaxing, and welcoming. The rooms are charming and the breakfasts are wonderful. It is very convenient to the campus. Our daughter has decided to attend Appalachian and we returned to Lovill House to stay in June 2009 during new student and parent orientation. My husband and I have already made our reservations at Lovill House Inn for parent's weekend in September. We highly recommend it to other Appalachian parents.

Ann and Scott provided a great atmosphere at the inn. The home is beautiful, the food was great, and the service unsurpassed. I would recommend the Lovill House to anyone!

Even the excellent website didn't do it justice!! The impeccable grounds were only matched by the top notch accomodations and our wonderful innkeepers Scott and Anne Peacock!! The food was skilllfully prepared, the social hours provided memories for a lifetime. Even nature was conspiring for us--Margie and I were visited by a young fawn as we sat in the gazebo. What a way to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary!!--Tom and Margie Reilly

Anne and Scott made our gathering of family and friends for Merlefest a perfect reunion. Every detail, including several dietary restrictions and the need for a massage was accomodated with grace and ease. We look forward to another visit to Lovill House Inn and appreciate the warmth and welcome extended by our hosts. The location is beautiful and the accomodations well appointed. Thanks again for providing a wonderful setting for our gathering! Susan and Dave North Wales, PA

Spent two nights here recently. A beautiful property. Room, "The Bristol," was roomy, comfortable and well-appointed. Innkeepers demonstrated concern for guests' comfort and were quick to respond to requests. Innkeepers fully knowledgeable about Boone area and helpful with suggestions for day trips. Breakfasts were generous and included meats, eggs, breads and fruits. Coffee available 30 minutes before breakfast served at 8:30. Recommend this property highly.

My wife and I spent 4 days and 3 nights enjoying the hospitality and family atmosphere at Lovill House. Scott and Ann bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and to make us feel at home. From a cozy fire to heart shapped pancakes, life was well above normal for a few precious days. We will definitly stay there again.

We spent 3 days and 2 nights at the Lovill House Inn. Not only was the inn was of the most well kept inns we've ever stayed at, but the innkeepers really exceed all expectations. The breakfast was out of this world and always plenty served. We loved the old buildings on the grounds and especially the waterfall. We will be back!

This bed and breakfast was perfect for my long business days. Scott and Anne were able to accomodate my breakfast time so I could be at work by 8:30 a.m. I was able to use the Inn to do my email in my room and also in the living room and dining room in the evenings. I felt at home when doing my work in the evenings. A change of pace from the ususal hotels. I would recommend any business travler to stay at this inn for a good night sleep and a place to work from in the evenings.

Our stay at the Lovill House Inn was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were very cozy and the grounds were gorgeous. The innkeepers, Scott and Ann, made us feel right at home. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice, relaxing place to stay, while visiting this beautiful area! Turns out my boyfriend found it was just the right place to propose!

My husband and I have celebrated several wedding anniversaries here! We love the Brsitol room with the wood fireplace! The inn keepers are fabulous and professional. The food is delicious and they always recommend great area restraunts! App. football is fun to watch too - even though we're Furman fans! We'll go again! Oh and the coffee is awesome!

We stayed at the Lovill House Inn for a family weekend birthday celebration and had a fantastic time! The inn with its beautifully landscaped flowers and gardens, the alluring wrap-around porch with its country rockers and the warm and inviting interior helped set the tone for a casual, relaxing atmosphere. Scott and Anne were wonderful hosts who were attentive to all our needs and provided little 'extras' like turn down bed service and fresh flowers in the room. The breakfasts were well presented, varied, tasty, and delicious. They treated us like 'family' and we definitely will return again when we want to celebrate a special occasion or just want to get away to relax, recharge, and renew ourselves. Loved the Lovill and loved Scott and Anne!

The first time we visited Anne and Scott at the Lovill House Inn, we thought we had found heaven – the warmth, friendliness, hospitality, and comfortable surroundings! But of course, first impressions can fool you. The second time we visited them, our first impressions were confirmed. What an outstanding location – what an outstanding host and hostess! Anne and Scott will make you forget what you’re escaping from. If you want solitude – they will let you have it. If you want to know “what’s happening,” they have all the answers. I’m sure everyone says they treat you like family. No, they treat you better than family – all the warmth and love without the dysfunctionality! Anne and Scott know how to make you feel welcome. When you stay at Lovill House, you’re not staying at a B&B – you’re visiting Anne and Scott, and they will go out of their way to make you feel like part of the family.

We regularly stay in B&B's in our travels throughout our travels in the US and Europe, and spots like the Lovill House Inn are what we always hope to find. The innkeepers are friendly and attentive to your needs. The rooms are comfortable and immaculate. There is great attention to detail, from adequate lighting throughout the inn to free beverages, including wines. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and well-maintained. Your rooms are aired out while you are away enjoying all that the mountains in the Boone/Blowing Rock area has to offer. You will also appreciate Anne's delicious breakfasts. We visit at least once a year and are always welcomed like long time friends. We are certain your stay will be will be a wonderful experience if it's in the innkeepers' power. Gene and Sandy

Our stay at the Lovill House Inn was remarkable. Scott and Anne took us in even though we showed up on their doors step late in the evening without a reservation. And, thanks to Anne noticing our arrival we descovered this "gem" of a Bed and Breakfast in Boone, NC. We can't wait to go back...this was our best experience staying at a B&B due to the warm and genuine hospitality provided by Scott and Anne.
5 on December 10, 2007
Scott & Anne were so kind! They went out of their way to make accomodations for our large group and made us feel very much at home. We cannot wait to go back!

This was our second stay with Scott and Ann and will not be our last. We began many wonderful memories there and now we have returned as a part of our honeymoon. They are wonderful people and Inn Keepers. Cindy and I would reccommend them to anyone who would love to feel like they were welcomed and genuinely cared for. You would be hard pressed to find a place like this one.

We have had the pleasure of staying at the Lovill House for the past Three Years in a row now. I cannot begin to explain how Beautiful the Inn is or how much we Treasure Scott and Anne. They are the reason that we continue to visit year after year. I have already made our reservations for 2008. They really make you feel welcome, comfortable, and very special. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone and everyone. The location is perfect, It is a vacation in itself just to stay at what we like to consider our "Home away from Home".
5 on March 10, 2007
Whenever we decide to get away from the big city, our first thought for a mountain getaway, in any season, is the Boone, NC area and always The Lovill House Inn. The first-class accommodations and, most importantly, the wonderful hospitality of Anne and Scott, make our stays there the restful & refreshing getaway we are seeking. To call the Inn our second home is not an exaggeration. The comfort we get there truly allows us that feeling. Thank you Anne and Scott.
5 on February 04, 2007
The Lovill House Inn is the best place to stay as a Bed and Breakfast if you like to be treated as a King and Queen. The Owners, Scott and Anne are such warm people and so eager to help you anyway they can. We couldn't imagine staying any other places when we visit in Boone, you have to try it to believe it. Don't take our word for it, book a night or two and you'll be hooked. It's also within walking distance to Grrrrrreat Shopping so thing about it!!!
