About

Specializing in historic lodging, unique retreats and memorable weddings, The Mast Farm Inn is a Historic Hotels of America boutique hotel, a Select Registry Inn, and is on The National Register of Historic Places. ►SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR PREFERRED RATES FOR TEACHERS, SENIORS, ACTIVE MILITARY AND VETERANS, AS WELL AS NUMEROUS SPECIALS AND PACKAGES.◄ Award-winning historic bed & breakfast and country inn in the Valle Crucis Historical District of North Carolina, which has been welcoming guests since the 1800s. More than a bed and breakfast, a country inn with farmhouse rooms, private getaway cottages and cabins. The key to the Inn’s success, however, lies in the exceptionally friendly and caring service offered to lodging guests. With inspired restoration and continuing care, the Inn continues to welcome guests, as it did over 100 years ago. Lodging guests now choose from 7 guest rooms in our 1880s farmhouse and 8 cottages and cabins, some restored from original farm buildings, others newly built. Cottages range in size from cozy ones suitable for a couple to large ones for up to six guests. All are unique spaces. The service is attentive, yet relaxed and friendly. Located in peaceful, historic Valle Crucis, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the Inn is convenient to Boone and Blowing Rock, close to the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and the magnificent Grandfather Mountain.

Wonderful place to stay

We have stayed at the Mast Farm Inn on two different occasions. The rooms and the cabins are very comfortable and clean. The breakfast is awesome. They ask if you have any food allergies and make your breakfast accordingly if you do. We will go back again.


Such an amazing & special place!

We very much enjoyed our 4 night stay in the Granary Cabin! The grounds and cabins are spectacular along with the most delicious breakfasts - such a wonderful place to visit. All of the staff were so kind and welcoming; all around our stay was amazing and we loved learning about the history of the Inn. Cannot wait to visit again - really cannot say enough great things about our experience :)
