Anniversary trip

We had a wonderful time visiting the Lovill House Inn. The inn and the grounds could not have been more beautiful. Both of the innkeepers went above and beyond to make out stay special. A word of thanks to both Anne and Scott for the extra efforts during our stay.....

My mother & I recently stayed there and we really enjoyed it. The house is beautiful and the yard is beautiful. The best thing is the care that the owners take of you. They go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your food & your visit. I can't wait to go back.

Innkeeper Response
Thoroughly enjoyed having both of you here with us, and we sincerely hope you'll choose us again when you return to the NC High Country!

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer

4.2 on May 26, 2016

A comfortable place, with exceptionally thoughtful and gracious innkeepers. They heartily welcomed us by name. After a tour, with mention of the founding of ASU in our very bedroom, we enjoyed a drink on the porch and headed into town (walking) to Vidalia, at Scott's recommendation, for supper. A first-rate experience. The next morning, the good coffee, fresh fruit, and egg casserole were a fantastic start to the day. I hope to return.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts with others. We love our location and are very glad you were able to take advantage of walking into town. Please remember the Lovill House Inn on your next visit to the NC High Country.

Great Location, helpful owners!

This B&B was in a wonderful location. Very convenient to downtown Boone. Many very good restaurants close by. Owners were very helpful in giving information to nearby events or places to go. Rooms were very nice and the yard and area was beautiful.

Awesome place!

Stayed there for a weekend with 4 other couples (yeah, we took over). Great place, great hosts. The rooms were just lovely. Breakfast was fabulous, with Anne being VERY meticulous about the food allergies in our group yet making sure the yum factor was there. Scott gave us some great recommendations for alternative hikes (we had snow/slush factor) and hooked us up with some great restaurants. And no review would be complete without mention of the sweet, sweet dog Heidi - ask about her story!
