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.

Thank you, Tessa and Bernard, for making me feel at home and comfortable. A wonderful setting and a beautiful home. The surrounding countryside is well worth a visit if yo have not been. Beautiful hiking and biking along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Saw deer and black bears so bring bells and/or spray. Loads to see and too in the nearby vicinity from arts and crafts in West Jefferson to shopping in Boone and climbing Grandfather Mountain. Merci, beaucoup, mes amis!

This was our first time staying at Taylor House Inn..We were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. The "Little Room" was very quaint and clean. Our breakfasts were simply delicious and just enough. The hospitality wonderful. We very much look forward to our next visit to The Taylor House Inn the next time we are in the Boone / Valle Crucis / Banner Elk area. Norman and Laura Harris Selma, NC

It was my wife's 50th Birthday and Valentines Day. I booked the first floor suite and it was perfect! Fire place, sitting room, claw foot tub and a king size four poster bed! The Romance Package was perfect! Champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and a bouquet of flowers were the perfect touch. The breakfast the next morning was fabulous and the inn keepers were the friendliness people, always there for our every need! I highly recommend anyone coming to the Valle Crusis, NC area to stay at this Bed and Breakfast that was built in 1911.

We stayed at the Taylor House Inn for my birthday weekend and trip to the mountains to snowboard, and we had a wonderful time. The hosts were gracious and welcoming, and we were very comfortable. We stayed in the flower cottage, which was clean and private, away from the rest of th inn. We were in and out a bit so we opted to stay there so as not to bother other guests. The breakfast in the morning was delicious! And the hosts ensured we had everything we would need. We will definitely be back again!

We had a very nice stay here at the Taylor house. Tessa and Bernard were great hosts! We stayed in the "flower cottage" and was perfect. It was a little more private, as it is separate from the main house (but only a few steps away).

We stayed in the little room which was very comfortable. The breakfast in the main house was great and the table layout for the meal was outstanding. Our host and hostess were very friendly and helpful. I would stay in the main house if return to the area again.

Our very first stay in a BB in the USA but not the last. The hosts were very helpful and kind - they recommended a very good restaurant nearby as well as they gave useful advice concerning our trip.
