Best B&B We've Stayed at

4.8 on April 16, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Baird House. After the quick tour of the home and the history we were guided to our room with fresh cookies. Delicious. The room was fantastic and very comfortable. The morning breakfast was delicious and the conversation with the other guests and hosts was wonderful. We will definitely stay at the Baird House again when we are in the Boone area.


First ever stay in B&B

4.8 on April 08, 2014

My wife and I wanted a getaway for the night and since Boone was less than an hour drive, we decided to try our first experience in a Bed & Breakfast. Amazing is an understatement of our experience with The Baird House. The hosts were very friendly, warm, and had a great sense of humor. We felt right at home in their B&B. The room was the perfect size for our night away from the kids. Coffee and cake was delicious and I normally don't drink much coffee. There was plenty of space in our room, the bathroom was decorated above average and we loved the matching robes. We had a great night of sleep. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. Company at the breakfast table along with conversation was great. We thank Tom and Deede for their hospitality and friendliness and welcoming us to their B&B. We highly recommend this stop on your way through Northwest North Carolina. We will be coming back

Very relaxing

4.8 on March 10, 2014

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.

About the innkeepers

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.
