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.

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!

For our first stay at a B&B, they set the standards high. The accommodations were outstanding and so comfortable. The service was top notch. They are so friendly and the food was great. Would definitely return.

Pleasantly surprised to end up in La La Land.

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!

Amazing View, Peaceful Trails, Delicious Food and Great Hosts!

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!

Love this Place!

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).

Loved every minute!!! Perfect place to relax and slow down. Room was perfect, the view breathtaking! The lodge itself is just so beautiful....every detail of the decor is "spot on" The staff is friendly and attentive, Anne is a great host. We had a massage that was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. I was a little worried my teenagers would get bored, but I had to "force them to leave"! So many things to do in the area, too. The kids went white water rafting and caving, but lots of little places to shop and eat Can't wait to go back Robi, Giulia and Darren
