Outstanding hospitality

Stayed in Boone during some terrible rainy weather, but the Lovill House and hosts Scott and Anne kept it from being a wash out! The home is historic, well appointed and so cozy with its fireplaces it made a welcome spot to return to after a wet day. We would have been happy just to read by the fire too. The attention to detail was apparent everywhere, robes,turn down service, info about the area. The hosts were there if you needed them, but granted privacy too. Breakfasts were a standout, savory and sweet offerings at each meal. If it had been pleasant weather, there were plenty of nooks on the property to curl up with a book and listen to the waterfall a few hundred yards away. Just delightful spot, can't imagine staying in Boone and not returning there.


Wonderful B&B with the friendliest innkeepers

5 on October 27, 2015

This is what you want a B&B to be like. Nice rooms, friendly and very helpful innkeepers, nice common area and grounds. Breakfast is always good (buffet style) and done in a single seating. Guests typically mingle in the common area with coffee before breakfast.


Wonderful first class B and B!

Our second stay at the Lovill House Inn was sadly only one night, but it was as wonderful as our first stay last year! Scott and Ann are the hosts with the most. Attention to detail is so apparent. Rooms are perfectly appointed and comfortable, breakfast is outstanding and the location within walking distance of downtown Boone can't be beat. I really hate to write such good review because I may not get reservations when I want them because I'm giving away a favorite place!!


Perfect in every way possible!

4.8 on October 15, 2015

Scott and Ann aim to please for sure. Delightful owners, breathtaking grounds with photo opportunities galore, and comfortable, clean rooms. Thanks for the comfortable stay in Boone!


Excellent 2 nights at Lovill House

4.6 on September 21, 2015

Scott and Anne are great hosts, they went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Every detail was nice from the wrap around porch, to the parking, to the beautiful grounds, newspapers and even warmed up coffee mugs in the morning. We highly recommend this B&B if exploring Blowing Rock and Boone.


What a B & B!!!!!! Outstanding

5 on September 01, 2015

Exceptional hosts--Scott is a great source for side trips off the Parkway, and Anne is a breakfast chef extraordinaire--not the usual scrambled eggs and bacon, but delightful gourmet. Little amenities, like coffee cups warmed on a warmer each morning, and access to a fridge stocked with cold beverages, and papers each morning on the living room table.


comfortable Bed & outstanding Breakfast

5 on August 30, 2015

The Lovill House Inn was in the top five of B&B's we have used. Clean room, beautiful grounds, quiet surroundings, great breakfasts, and outstanding hosts.
