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!

Did not know what to expect and walked into the quaintest most charming place I could have imagined. Anne opened her inspiration to us and we were home.

Not only were our expectations met, they were exceeded! Truly a beautiful place. We arrived late to Traci, Bo and Bella waiting for us with a welcoming smile and a hot pot of coffee. Really just an outstanding B&B that I look forward to returning to time and time again. Breakfast on the deck was spectacular. Do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed! We cannot wait to return!

When we arrived at the Lazy Bear Lodge, we were immediately greeted by Bo, Bella and smiling staff. The scenery was lovely, The koi pond, landscaping, and peaceful trails provide an amazing outdoor setting. The mountain view from the back porch is postcard worthy! The room was larger than expected, the decor was tasteful, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and included fresh fruit, home grown tomatoes, french toast, bacon, sausage and eggs with plenty of juice and coffee. Anne, Mark and all of the staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. Definitely planning another trip soon!

My husband and I loved this bed and breakfast. Breakfast was delicious and we were able to eat outside every morning and enjoy the view. It is in a perfect location, you are not far from Blowing Rock and Downtown Boone. At night we would sit on the porch and relax while watching the flying squirrels and all the other wildlife. We will definitely be back. The driveway that leads to the bed and breakfast is paved ( motorcycle friendly).
