Wonderful place to stay in Boone, NC!

4.8 on December 03, 2014

We absolutely loved our time at the Lovill House Inn and highly recommend a visit there. Anne & Scott are wonderful hosts, very friendly, and their hospitality is unmatched. You truly feel like you are there for a visit with great friends you have known for a long time. While they respect your privacy at all times, they make you feel right at home and welcome, like you belong there! Thanks, Scott and Anne, for a great weekend getaway at you home! Clint T.


Lovely stay - we will be back!

We stayed at the Lovill House Inn a few weekends ago on our way to a wedding - what a fantastic stop! Scott and Anne are amazing - so lovely and welcoming and full of great local knowledge and ideas for dining and other activities! Our room was lovely, very clean, warm, and welcoming. And the location of the Inn is perfect - so close to downtown Boone, but it feels like you are completely secluded. We loved our stay - and even though we had originally planned for this to just be a one-off trip to Boone, we are already talking about when we can come back! Thanks Scott and Anne - what a lovely stay!


Great overnight getaway

We stayed in the cottage. It was exceptional. It was clean, warm, and very cozy. We only stayed one night due to our work schedules, but would have stayed another night, had we had the time. Staff is very accommodating, and friendly.


Wonderful stay

Our hosts were wonderful. We had a tremendous breakfast, they helped us in with our bags and when we forgot some essential items, Ann overnighted those to us.


Everything was as advertised - Great

We have visited the Lovill House Inn for many years now. It is our fall destination for the change of seasons in the fall. I cannot say enough about the quality of the inn and the service Anne and Scott provide. The grounds are pristine and the rooms are well appointed. I recommend it without any reservation to anyone visiting the Boone NC area.

Great fall weekend

4.6 on November 02, 2014

The Lovill House Inn is just off downtown Boone. It is a lovely setting in a fantastic house. Our room had a fireplace which we took complete advantage of (very romantic for our anniversary!). The breakfasts were yummy and the other guests had some great stories. Anne and Scott are very nice, with a lot of entertaining stories. We would definitely visit again and highly recommend it to anyone.


Pleasant stay in Boone

Innkeeper Response

Excellent Bed and Breakfast

5 on October 28, 2014

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!

Innkeeper Response
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!
