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.

Bottom Line Up Front: Anne and Mark were terrific hosts, the room was superb and the breakfast was fantastic. We have been to a number of B&Bs throughout the country over the years and this was the one we would most like to revisit. As a matter of fact, we already have another reservation.

We only stayed at Lazy Bear Lodge one night and definitely wish it was alot longer. We stayed there to see the fall colors which we missed by two weeks but the view was beautiful regardless. We were the only ones staying at the Inn that evening as it is their slower season, but Anne was a most gracious host and even gave a full tour and let us pick a different room. All the rooms are outstanding and the pictures we saw on the web don't do them justice. The beds are all firm and quite comfortable, the rooms are immaculate and the atmosphere is homey and welcoming. Bo and Bella are great company, especially if you are dog lovers like we are and missing our dog back home. Breakfast was made to order and delicious. The entire facility is well kept and cared for. They even have a store in the lobby which has specialty items and well worth a look. We appreciated the hospitality from the second we got there, until the moment we left. Anne even suggested a great restaurant for us to try in Boone and we were very pleased with it. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely make time to stay at Lazy Bear Lodge.

I loved this place, the warm welcome from Anne and her family, the ambience, the location, and the standard of lodging and food. It's the sort of place you can just sit and drink in the surroundings. As I don't live in the USA I shall have to be content to imagining myself back there often. I hope to visit again one day.
