At first I was a little hesitant about how I would like the property, but I had a fabulous time. it was very relaxing, laid back, and I enjoyed being able to interact with the other guests over breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, it was fantastic! Also, the innkeepers were very nice, accomodating, and easy to talk to. I would consider staying there again.

This is a great place to stay if you want a real bed and breakfast experience. Everything was great including Tom and Dee Dee. They were the best host ever and made you feel right at home. Better than a hotel in the mountains. Looking forward to my next visit..Shamekia

Had a great Valentine Getaway at the Baird House. Tom and Deede are wonderful hosts and the breakfast is just wonderful! We stayed in the Appleview Room in the Carriage House and loved the room. It was the perfect winter weekend getaway and we do hope to visit again soon in the spring!

Absolutely lovely historic home, with wonderful homey and cozy decor that honors the history of the home and area. The owners and hosts,Tom and Dedee, were fantastic as well. I couldn't recommend this more highly. And what a wonderful breakfast!

Baird House is a beautiful old home (1790) with character and charm. The setting next to the Watauga River is gorgeous and the hospitality warm. Breakfast was full and delicious. Recommended.

Deede & Tom Hinson
Deede, Tom and 4 children moved from Myrtle Beach to Valle Crucis in October 1997.Deede & Tom say that being innkeepers is" the hardest work that we have ever loved!" . Hosting a bed & breakfast inn must be in their blood/genetics since Deede's family owns a hotel at Ocean Isle Beach,NC & Tom's family was in the hotel business & his dad had B&B's in Charleston & Savannah. Genuine Southern hospitality is practised at the Baird House.
