Quiet and peaceful setting overlooking Valle Crucis. 5 elegant bedrooms w/fireplace or stove, some with private porches. Private bath including whirlpool and separate shower. Full breakfast with menu selections. Close to all activities. Available for parties or meetings. Wrap yourself up in a butter-soft robe and watch the sun set on the far mountain tops. Then snuggle in front of your own fire until sleep overtakes you in a bed of fine linens and lofty bed coverings. Wake to find fresh coffee waiting in the dining room and a complete assortment of breakfast foods.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lazy Bear Lodge. The rooms were amazing and overall experience was wonderful. Loved the jacuzzi tub and fireplace in the rooms. Great recommendation for dinner at Casa Rustica. We loved the dogs, just wished they weren't allowed in the dining room/kitchen area. Other than that, no complaints at all, it was absolutely perfect. Gorgeous view of the mountains as well. Very romantic place to get engaged as we did! (: We would love to go back!

My wife and I decided to take a weekend trip to the Boone area. The Lazy Bear Lodge transformed our trip from good to great. From the moment we got out of our car we were smitten with this place. Two happy friendly dogs greeted us at the door, the receptionist gave us a through tour of the cabin and amenities, and the owners helped us pick a dinner spot. Wonderful room with a huge bed, fireplace, and great view it was completely relaxing. Breakfast in the morning was great too and the staff overly friendly. Loved this place and will go back again next time we visit Boone.

We were delighted by our three night stay at Lazy Bear Lodge. The setting is beyond beautiful, situated in the mountains outside of Boone, NC. The accommodations, service, and food were attractive, upscale, and comfortable. The hostess was available to respond to individual requests, give directions to area attractions, and help make dining choices. Bo and Bela added to the ambience! We would love to visit again in the future.

We love this B&B hands down! Great location in the beautiful area of Valle Crucis near the original Mast General Store up a climbing winding driveway that ends at a fabulous lodge beautifully decorated with a rustic mountain touches. The views from everywhere on this property are breathtaking, and the lovely owners are more than accommodating. We stayed in the Black Bear suite on the main floor which was very spacious, beautifully appointed decor, stove fireplace, and a sliding glass window to a deck with amazing vistas. We highly recommend and will stay there again.

We had a wonderful weekend at the Lazy Bear Lodge, and in the High Country. This was my first stay at the Lazy Bear Lodge, and my first trip to the High Country of N. C. Hopefully, it will not be our last. We look forward to coming back.

My wife and I stayed at Lazy Bear one night in early October. Mark and Anne have outdone themselves with this B&B. They built this place specifically to be a B&B, and they did lots of research beforehand. There is no detail left undone. The location is gorgeous, close to Boone, and so very quiet and peaceful. Mark and Anne are obviously people-focused as they welcomed us in and made good conversation. Our room, the Lost Creek, was stellar. A warm gas fireplace kept us toasty as we took a long bath in the jacuzzi tub. Our balcony overlooked the gorge and we could see for miles. I would have paid five star prices for the breakfast! This place is a MUST. Don't go anywhere else!
