We stayed in the President's Suite on the property and it was EXTREMELY reasonable. The food was unbelievable, and the attention to detail was fabulous! I travel for a living, and have stayed all over the country. If you are looking for a great weekend getaway, or a longer getaway this is the place to stay. When driving in, make sure to pay attention to the printed directions. The GPS gets a little wonky at the end.
Great B&B very quiet and relaxing . Enjoyed the sunset over the mountains relaxing on the front porch with some local wine and cheese from town . Excellent breakfast , very accommodating Inn keeper . If you need it , just ask . Will return later this year .
This is a "classic" B& B, and as such is an older building. However, it is clean and the rooms are comfortable. The setting is wonderful, and our breakfast -- bananas Foster french toast was out of this world!
Lovely House Inn is a beautiful inn with welcoming and knowledgeable innkeepers (Anne and Scott). We stayed in the Bristol Room - with a working wood fireplace that was cozy and quite romantic. This is a small, intimate inn and we couldn't have been more comfortable. Anne's breakfast was absolutely delicious. Do not pass up the opportunity to enjoy this lovely inn.
My mom and I attended a conference in Boone, NC last month (March 2018) and wanted to be within walking distance of town, but far enough away to experience the quiet beauty of Boone. Lovill House Inn was everything we were looking for and more. The house and location were exceptional, the rooms were really nice and surprisingly large, the grounds were well taken care of. But the owners make the experience so wonderful. They were super nice, informative, very helpful and cooked a scrumptious breakfast. If you are going to Boone and want to be pampered STAY HERE you will love it!
We rented the entire house to accomodate extended family for my daughter's wedding reception. It was so perfect. The house is lovely, the grounds wonderfully suited for an after dinner stroll, and the rooms are full of facinating antiques. There is a depression glass collection scattered throughout. The hosts are accomodating, wonderful people, it was like staying with family. Excellent food. Can't wait to go back.
Such a beautiful place on the river! The scenery was beautiful, just a few steps out the back to the river. We spent the weekend with our two boys and enjoyed the hot tub and some sight seeing. The little touches like board games and popcorn were a treat. It was a great place to stay and the owners were so helpful. You can tell they take pride in their cabins with the cleanliness of the entire property. We will definitely be back!
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.
Wonderful find off the beaten path. Steve and Susan (new owners) seemed to work extra hard to make our stay wonderful. It was quiet and comfortable, and clean, The breakfast was outstanding- even the coffee was great (coming from a coffee snob).
My fiancé and I stayed at the Taylor House Inn for the Christmas holiday. Bernard and Tessa were very gracious hosts. They made sure all of our needs were met. The Inn is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend The Taylor House Inn to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
Being there is something simply relaxing, the kindness and personalized attention of your hosts make you feel like one of the family, it is a wonderful place, share with them you will not regret it ....
Excellent attention from Bernard and Tessa ... to spend a few days away from the noise and the everyday ... it is the best ... the mountains ... spectacular ... and the delicious breakfast ... Congratulations!
Wow! We cannot say enough about our experience! We enjoyed every moment of it. We were spoiled with wonderful hospitality and amazing food! We highly recommend this place and can’t wait to go back!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay, and our hosts were lovely and interesting people. And Valle Crucis is nestled in a beautiful part of North Carolina. Highly recommended. 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.
My wife and I returned to the Taylor House Inn after 5 years and found that the accommodations were, if anything, better than the first time we visited. Sorry that we missed Tessa, but Bernard treated us more like family than guests and well be talking about this breakaway from our daily routine for years to come. We've decided to keep returning to Taylor House until we've had a chance to stay in each of the separate rooms.
My husband and I enjoyed staying in the Flower Cottage for 3 nights over Thanksgiving. It was the perfect getaway for us. Our room was clean with fresh towels and trash removed every day. It was a pleasure to have a delicious breakfast each morning and get to chat with other guests. Tessa and Bernard were excellent hosts. They made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed having a hot beverage and complementary dessert each night as my husband and I played board games in the house. The location is conveniently close to Boone, Blowing Rock, and the Mast General Store. We hope to come back again sometime and stay during the spring or summer so we can enjoy the big porch too!
My wife and I stayed here toward the end of October 2017. The house and room were perfect. We had snow that weekend so the fire place in our room added that special touch.. Tessa and Bernard were the perfect hosts. We stayed three nights and each morning awoke to a delicious breakfast and tales of pirates and gold from Bernard(Our travels to Key West came up that morning). So to sum it up...Great house , fall leaves ,snow ,good food ,great hosts ,awesome area ,great places to eat near by(The Gamekeeper was our fav) Great place. Give it try you will have a good time.
Our stay was nothing short of amazing. We always go for a trip for our anniversary and my husband was working in the area and saw it as he drove by. From the moment we got there we were met with Bobbie’s smiling face! We were given a tour of the lodge and were able to settle in and come up for hours dourves which were delicious. Then we relaxed for the rest of the night in the family room and on the swinging bed. From the swinging bed the calming sound of the river was just what we needed to relax. The leaves were in full vibrant colors. The next day Bobbie had delicious breakfast and gave us info about the area. We went out and came back for evening and sat by the fireplace and just relaxed. If you are looking for somewhere to just relax and rewind this place is for you! Definitely will be back!
What a wonderful place! Everything done to perfection. From the Chocolate French Toast to the exquisite decor. And the hostess? Well, Bobbie is the cherry on top!!! She makes your stay nothing like any other. Can't wait to return!
We had a great stay at the Taylor House. Loved the location, our room was perfect and the bed was so comfortable. Big bathroom and pretty quiet and private for a B&B. Nice people and delicious breakfast. Brownies and wine and cheese for afternoon treats were a nice touch. We'll be back.
So much more than we expected! The Lodge is gorgeous, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the hors d’oeuvres and Breckfast was excellent! They also accommodated me being gluten free. I highly recommend The Lodge at River Run!
