Just had another great time in the very nice Boone, NC area. The next time we are there, we will be at the Lovill house. You can walk down the hill to a nice restaurant if you so choose.

Excellent B&B with exceptional innkeepers!

My wife and I discovered The Lovill house online and the reviews were very good, so we decided to give it a try. The Inn is super clean and has a great history , which Scott and Anne will share with guests. Scott and Anne were gracious hosts, very friendly, and super knowledgeable about the area and places to go while staying at the Lovill House. The breakfast was top notch, and the sense of community at breakfast with other guests was refreshing. We would highly is B&B to anyone who is looking to stay in Boone, NC and not stay in a chain hotel/motel. This has been by far THE BEST B&B that my wife and I have visited. We stayed in the Hickory room which is large, has a large full bath with two sinks, a king size bed and a fully functioning fireplace. Even as the house was fully booked, it was quiet, and we had no issues sleeping. We look forward to visiting Scott and Anne at the Lovill house again. You will not be disappointed if you stay at this exceptional B&B.

Inn Keepers Scott and Ann were very enjoyable people. While Scott was serving Ann's delicious breakfast, he visited with the guest and told us wonderful stories about the Inn and the history. I highly recommend this B&B.

The Perfect Bed and Breakfast

5 on November 04, 2016

We stayed at the Lovill House Inn for 5 days in October, 2016. Scott and Anne were so welcoming and provided Southern hospitality throughout our stay. We felt as if we were right at home! The inn is charming and beautiful. The breakfast we were served each morning was delicious.The grounds were gorgeous and surrounded by magnificent floweres. The inn is conveniently located and easily accessible to all attractions.We were provided maps and Scott gave wonderful recommendations and directions for places to visit and dine.Choosing the Lovill House Inn is the perfect choice for a delightful vacation to visit the Blue Ridge Parkway. We can't wait to return next year!

The Perfect B & B

My husband and I returned to the Lovill House for the 3rd time last week, and it was as lovely as ever. We stayed there for our honeymoon in 2008 and paid a second visit in 2010 - again this time we stayed in the Lenoir Room, which is comfortable and pretty with an antique feel and morning sunlight. Anne and Scott are so welcoming, and will give recommendations for dining as well as trails and hikes and sights to see. They keep the Inn immaculate and cultivate beautiful gardens over the 11 lush acres. We were amazed at the beautiful dahlias blooming in late October. It's all very picturesque, quiet and tranquil. It is simply the perfect B & B, where the hosts are friendly and happy to see you but unobtrusive; where all is clean and perfectly well run; the Inn exudes tranquility of a bygone era, the breakfast is delicious and the other guests are congenial and courteous. We will definitely be returning yet again!

Great Place
