This amazing hidden gem is beautifully nestled within the winding hills of Valle Crucis. You'll find gorgeous views from any angle in this B&B! Whether it is sitting on the back deck with picturesque views of the mountains or looking over the thoughtfully landscaped gardens and Koi pond. You are sure to spy many of the resident woodland creatures to... More

We have stayed in a goodly number of B & Bs over the last six years or so, and all have been quite comfortable and pleasant. Lazy Bear, however, is in a class by itself—the class of magnificent, superb and wonderful. Perched just below the crown of a mountain, its back porches and balconies afford a view through the tops... More

This was the second stop on our tour of N&S Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. We were met by Bella the Newfoundland, who lies around waiting to have her tummy rubbed. Nice life! We had a lovely room on the corner on the same floor as the breakfast room with wonderful views to the green hills. The bird feeders attracted all... More

At the tip-top of the windy Lazy Bear Trail drive, snuggled low into the side of the mountain lays the Lazy Bear Lodge. Bella, the sweet family hound, will welcome you with deep baritone woofs and a few wags as you come down the cobblestone walkway past the Koi pond. Even during fall, when the leaves covered much of the... More

I just can't say enough nice things about this wonderful B&B. The Lazy Bear Lodge is a beautiful house perched on a hillside just over 3K feet in elevation, nestled among hardwood trees near Valle Crucis. From the moment you approach the custom-designed front door along a path that wanders through the lush garden and past the babbling koi pond,... More

Beautiful/majestic views from rooms and porch, relaxing, comfortable, delicious b-fast, family atmosphere. Staff make you feel like a part of their family. Landscaping is unreal. We plan to return @ least annually as one of our favorite fam-vaca spots.

The lodge was beautiful and peaceful. The inn keeper was very welcoming. I had a great time. Her breakfasts were outstanding. I look forward to returning next year. The view from our room was so pretty and breathtaking. Anne made us feel right at home. She has a dog who was very friendly. I felt relaxed while staying there. I... More

My husband and I, both seniors, had a fantastic time at The Lazy Bear Lodge B&B. Ann, Lilly & Bella ( the LARGE friendly dog) were most welcoming. Our room had it's own private balcony with two large Adirondack chairs with cushions, geraniums and other potted plants made the space charming. The best, however, is the view over the mountains....

What sets Lazy Bear apart from other B&B's are the owners & the super-helpful, friendly staff. Anne is warm, gracious & welcoming without being intrusive. She steered us toward a great day on the Virginia Creeper Trail, a 17 mile (mostly downhill) bike ride on a converted rail line through the woods with a nearby stream. She also was wonderfully...

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at the Lazy Bear Lodge. We were there for the Blood Sweat and Gears ride and the owners were so accommodating. We brought our 13 year old daughter with us and they graciously provided her with an air mattress. She loved it and sweet Bella. Mark and Anne were very personable and we enjoyed... More
