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.

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!

The best part of the stay are the owners followed closely by the wonderful breakfast and expansive rooms. The mountain view is relaxing.

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.

We have been to Lazy Bear many times and have always had a very enjoyable time. This is by far the best bed and breakfast we have been to.

Thanksgiving at the Lodge

5 on December 14, 2014

My husband and I spent three nights at Lazy Bear, beginning 11/25/14. We made our reservations late, but by moving our dates a bit, they were able to accommodate us. We stayed in a cozy upstairs room with a small balcony overlooking the valley. What a joy to awaken the next morning to snow, which made our visit all the more memorable. I would call the style of the inn "rustic elegance." Breakfasts were beautifully prepared, served to order, and fresh-cut fruit is placed on each table. We ate Thanksgiving dinner at the lodge, which was fantastic, and the innkeepers recommended two very good local restaurants for the other two nights. Very conveniently located right at Valle Crucis, and an easy drive to Boone and Blowing Rock. This property was built as a B&B, so bathrooms are full-size - no showers carved out of a linen closet under the eaves as in an old house that has been retrofitted. Anne and Mark, the innkeepers, are so dear, and they anticipate your every need. We will be retuning in 2015, as this is now our favorite B&B!

Great Place!

First time at a Bed and Breakfast. Excellent experience. Everything was so cozy and Anne and Mark could not have been any more pleasant and helpful.

Quiet peaceful stay

We were warmly welcomed by the owner and her two dogs! That night a special treat - one of the best homemade biscuits I've ever had! What we really liked was not having to come to breakfast at a certain time and having our own table (not keen on eating with strangers).

great weekend

The accommodations were great and so were the host. Could not have asked for a better time

Wonderful place to make memories

4.6 on November 20, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lazy Bear Lodge. The rooms were amazing and overall experience was wonderful. Loved the jacuzzi tub and fireplace in the rooms. Great recommendation for dinner at Casa Rustica. We loved the dogs, just wished they weren't allowed in the dining room/kitchen area. Other than that, no complaints at all, it was absolutely perfect. Gorgeous view of the mountains as well. Very romantic place to get engaged as we did! (: We would love to go back!
