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.

Honeymoon getaway

4.8 on July 16, 2014

We were recently married and did not begin our honeymoon until several days later.. We wanted a special place to spend our wedding night and the Lazy Bear Lodge was just perfect. Our late arrival was wasn't a problem, the Garden View room was tastefully romantic and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast on the porch. We appreciated Anne's hospitality and enjoyed visiting with Bella and Bo! We would recommend the Lazy Bear Lodge and plan to visit again.

Wonderful B & B!

Had a wonderful stay at Lazy Bear Lodge for 1 night on July 10. Wish we could have stayed longer!! Anne and Mark are wonderful hosts. Especially loved the back deck and watching the sunset over the mountains! Breakfast was amazing. We will be back!!

We attended a wedding over the July 4th holiday and stayed at the Lazy Bear. The room and view were great. The inn was clean and cozy. We loved the two dogs Bo and Bela. Thank you for making our stay excellent.

We'll be back.

Everything was great. The steps going upstairs beside our room (black bear) were kind of noisy but fortunately there wasn't a lot of traffic on them. We'll definitely be back.

Wonderful stay, again!

It's been a few years since our last visit to the Lazy Bear Lodge, and everything was as perfect as before!! Perfect location, beautiful home, and lovely owners. Hope we can return for another wonderful stay.

Truly beautiful, the most beautiful views in the world. Highly recommended.

Great Mountain Getaway!

We booked the Lost Creek Room for 2 nights. It faces the Mtns. and has a balcony where we could watch the birds, flying squirrels and even deer right outside our room. Our hosts thought of every detail, and breakfast outside on the porch was wonderful! They have two wonderful, gentle dogs, Bella and BoBo, and they were perfect greeters! It felt like it was our home away from home, and we will definitely go back.

Perfect Weekend Getaway in the Mountains

It was another wonderful stay at the Lazy Bear Lodge. This place is at the top of our list of places to stay. The atmosphere is so relaxing and the couples massage is awesome! We love the scenery - inside and out. The room is comfortable and the hospitality here surpasses all of the B&B's we have stayed at. The breakfast is truly fresh and delicious. We have a hard time turning in our key to the room when we leave. We definitely plan on returning again!

Can't wait to go back!

My mom, my sister, and I recently stayed at the Lazy Bear Lodge for a girls' weekend, and we had a wonderful time! The accommodations are beautiful and well-kept, the views are incredible, and Ann and Mark's hospitality is delightful! I have stayed in B&Bs all over the United States as well as Europe, and the Lazy Bear Lodge is definitely one of the very best! I spent the drive home figuring out how soon I could return!
