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.

Great Experience.

4.4 on September 02, 2014

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

birthday weekend

Loved our stay at Lazy Bear....researched several b & b's in the area and glad we settled on LBL Would recommend.

Lazy Bear Lodge is wonderful.

This is an ideal place for a quiet retreat. You can look out at the mountains all day. The food is delicious and the owners would do anything for you.

Quiet and cozy

4.0 on July 23, 2014

My wife and I had a great weekend away. This was our second time at the LB and we still enjoyed it. We tried the Hummingbird room, because it was a bigger room, had a balcony and had a big bathroom. Only downside was it had two queen beds. So, when we tried sleeping in the same bed, it was pretty close quarters and at times, felt like we were going to fall out of the bed. This would be a great room for a ladies night away for separate sleeping arrangements. Next time we'll probably go for the Lost Creek (smaller bathroom, king bed, balcony). Other than that it was a nice relaxing weekend away. Beautiful lodge and great breakfast. Mark and Anne are super nice and very accommodating.

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.
