Extremely well run B&B: spotless, homey, beautiful decor and details. Great hosts! Wonderful time meeting other guests over splendid breakfast. Beautiful grounds to explore, with fabulous flowers and foliage. Hope to return!

We really try to give everyone of our guests the feeling of being "just like being at home away from home". We enjoyed having you with us and hope to see you again when you return to the NC High Country!

We stayed in a lovely cottage on this wooded property located at the edge of Boone. Our host gave us a complete orientation to the place and showed us where we could find snacks and drinks. The breakfast was wonderful. Would definitely recommend this B&B!

Innkeeper Response
The Spring House cottage is a favorite for our romantics. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Hope to see you again on your next trip to the NC High Country and Boone area.

The best place in Boone!

We loved our stay! I have food allergies and they prepared the most wonderful breakfast! The flowers are amazing and it's just beautiful! Excellent service. I can't say enough! It's also close enough to walk to ASU games.

Perfect Historic Getaway in the Heart of Town

We loved staying at the Lovill House Inn! Everything was perfect and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Scott and Anne are wonderful hosts and were able to alter my breakfast each day to meet my vegan diet. We loved how close to town we were while feeling like we were in a private mountain retreat. Highly recommended!!!!

Innkeeper Response
We love the convenience and rustic feeling of the property also. Guests last night walked into town for dinner, yet when they returned to sit on the porch at night they felt like they were out in the country. Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts with other travelers!

Wonderful location, great hosts!

The Innkeepers are experienced in their art and are wonderful hosts. The Inn is warm and inviting, the rooms are solid. Breakfasts are outstanding, and local dining is varied and delightful. I would recommend the Lovill House Inn anytime ones travels take them to this area.

A wonderful stay

Anne and Scott were wonderful, and their inn is a beautiful gem! Our room was very comfortable, and they had taken pains to find restaurants to recommend for our dinner (we arrived at dinner time); as well as activities for the next day. I was very impressed with the level of service--and our delicious breakfast the next morning! We really had a lovely time. The grounds are also beautiful.

Wonderful property. Innkeepers could not have nicer and helpful.

Most excellent stay!

We recently booked a stay with Scott and Anne in the Spring Cottage for my wife's Birthday. At first,we had our doubts on booking a stay in separate quarters from the main house, but after arrival and being given a tour of the premises by Scott our doubts were relieved. What a beautiful piece of property!! Scott's dahlia beds are something to see! Scott and Anne are wonderful hosts and Heidi (the inn pet) keeps a watchful eye on everyone. Do not hesistate a reservation withthis Band B. Absolutely perfect ! Lois and Willie Roberts Conway SC

Innkeeper Response
We enjoyed meeting you both and are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Hope to see you again on your next trip to Boone and the NC High Country. Heidi says "woof woof"!
