Valle Crucis, North Carolina has been attracting settlers and travelers alike, for nearly 200 years. Taylor House Inn is a Bed & Beakfast and, with the majestic surrounding valley scene and the beautiful herb garden, it is the perfect place to spend some quality time as well as to host an outdoor wedding or any other event. We at the Taylor House Inn invite you to come and experience a place that seems one of times past, a place where moments of solitude are as abundant as the rivers and streams that give life to the surrounding hills. We feel fortunate to be part of such a powerful place and would like to extend our hospitality to help share the magic of Valle Crucis.

The service, food and accommodations were all top notch. We loved the location and beautiful setting. This was our second time staying at the Inn and we will definitely be back again.

Staying in a B&B is not unfamiliar to me. Taylor House Inn really is exceptional. The warm welcome, the inviting atmosphere, the extraordinary food and service are truly exceptional. The comfort of the room, cozy and immaculate. The Inn keepers, Tessa and Bernard Russo are two of the loveliest people you could meet. They make you feel like old friends. There is no service, question, or kindness they would not do for you. They are people you love by the time you leave. Really. Extraordinary.. some day, when they on to retirement, they will be missed by so many people. Truly angels among us. Regina..Greeneville, TN.
Woaw! Here is to kindness! Thank you Regina and see you soon!

Remember to visit all the Mast stores while there!! And if there's a flyfisherman in your group, the Watauga River is five minutes away and gorgeous, with a big park for the kids to play.
