Visit Website


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.

Perfect Getaway!

5 on March 23, 2015

Beautiful views, beautiful lodge, delicious breakfast, very helpful and friendly owners - Anne recommended restaurants and activities, made reservations for us, and even printed out the directions to each. She was very accommodating with our allergy requirements, modifying the breakfast and snack recipes to remove all offending nuts. :-) It was a rainy and cold day, so we spent much of the day just relaxing in the living room, where we felt perfectly comfortable. Would definitely come again!

We had a wonderful stay at Lazy Bear for our 25th anniversary. Anne is a wonderful hostess and cook. We also highly recommend a massage in the beautiful spa room. We hope to stay again someday!

Early February

We enjoyed the beautiful Garden View room in early February. Mark and Anne were very kind and helpful. Anne made us reservations at a local restaurant and printed directions. She also set up a wonderful couple's massage for us. I would love to visit again!

This is my favorite place in the entire world. My husband and I were blessed to be able to celebrate our wedding here this past weekend. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend!

We have been to the Lazy Bear Lodge many times in the last 6 years and each time we go we fall in love again with the property and its hosts. The house was decorated for Christmas and we had a wonderful sitting by the fireplace and drinking our wine and looking over the mountains. This weekend their oldest dog BO died who has been a permanently fixture and always very friendly to the guests, he will be missed.
