My wife and I go to the Taylor House Inn each year for our anniversary. The beautiful town drew us to the area -- the Inn is just minutes from historic Valle Cruces, a great destination rain or shine. The view from the Inn overlooks a beautiful valley and is just minutes away from a brisk hike to a beautiful... More

We came to enjoy our friend's wedding, which we did, but we also enjoyed meeting the Inn Keepers, the Russos, and the other guests at the Taylor House that were not connected to our wedding group. It was a delightfully relaxing weekend with good food, good accommodations and good weather.

I was looking for a little "retreat" in the mountains and found it in a rocking chair on the Taylor House Inn's porch. We stayed in the Little Room in the Red Cottage away from the main house. It was tiny, very quiet, and had its own porch (but we liked the porch in the main house better). The bedroom... More

Visited this inn at the recommendation of friends and found it to be perfect. We really enjoyed the fantastic breakfasts, charming hosts and the great location. Tessa and Bernard were exceptionally helpful with local information and made sure we were happy during our stay-- and without being intrusive. We will be back.

Very attractive Inn with clean rooms, no high tech stuff- no widescreen tv, and in fact most of the rooms apparently don't have tvs. I stayed there as I was attending an Aoife O'donovan Concert at ASU in Boone. From Charlotte I took I-77 north to 421 north, to 105/221 south to Broadstone, to 194 south, a little longer but... More

Wonderful experience from reservation to departure. Bernard and Tessa are fantastic hosts and went out of their way to assure I had a pleasant stay. They were attentive, but not intrusive. Had great recommendations for local walks-the Valle Crucis Park, Bernard's directions were more reliable than my phone-which didn't have service much of the time and to top it off... More

My fiancée and I loved our stay at the Taylor House Inn. Tessa and Bernard made us feel welcome and were always on hand if we needed anything. The house is beautiful and full of great paintings by Tessa's grandmother and daughter. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast delicious and it even snowed on our last day there. You couldn't...

We want to extend a huge "Merci" to Bernard and Tessa for making our weekend perfect! We stayed for 2 nights and this B & B surpassed all of our expectations. Our room was the attic room (top floor of the house). It was incredibly private with king bed, sitting area, private bath with shower and television (one of the... More

Everything about this inn was fantastic. Bernard and his family were extremely kind and courteous. Breakfast was some of the best I've ever had. One afternoon, they made lemon cake and invited everyone down to enjoy. Don't pass up this inn.

Our recent stay at the Taylor House Inn was excellent! Bernard greeted us when we arrived, and Tessa had warm banana bread waiting inside. The house was beautiful and well kept, and our room was quiet, cozy and very clean. We didn't hear a peep all night, and woke refreshed and renewed. Breakfast was delicious, and Bernard gave us plenty... More
