Warm and Inviting

5 on October 23, 2014

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.

Warm and Inviting B&B

4.0 on October 23, 2014

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

wonderful stay

4.6 on October 21, 2014

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!

LOVILLE HOUSE INN...So lovely and peaceful!

5 on October 18, 2014

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!

Lovely and private B&B

4.8 on September 20, 2014

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!!

A beautiful retreat

4.6 on September 16, 2014

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!
