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

Arrived in the dark and pouring rain, but that didn't stop us falling in love with this charming place. Fabulous view albeit through the rain and mist, but the sound and smell of the rain was fantastic. Sat on our terrace watching flying squirrels and fireflies dancing in the trees. Very hospitable family run B&B, breakfast was lovely. Shame it... More

Stayed one night in early April. Met at the front door by Bella the Newfoundland and Anne, the innkeeper and hostess. Both were wonderful features of our stay at the B&B. Orientation involves Bella performing a number of her tricks. The lodge is in a private location on the side of a mountain with breathtaking views of Appalachian scenery. The... More

This is a wonderful place to stay with warm and caring management. Our room had a king size bed, fireplace, and large bath with shower and jacuzzi tub. The breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious! Looking forward to going back very soon. Charlie & Nancy P.

We were looking for a place with a mountain feel, and found it at Lazy Bear. The fireplaces and wood logs were just right, and the view is amazing. We highly recommend Lazy Bear lodge for a mountain B&B.

Routinely one of the top rated B&B's in this portion of North Carolina, the Lazy Bear is perched above a pretty stream valley, surrounded by trees and beautiful scenery. With only 5 rooms lodging is limited but the rooms are comfortable, well-appointed, and moderately priced for the area. 4 of the 5 rooms are upstairs, so those with impaired mobility... More

We just spent two wonderful nights at the Lazy Bear Lodge. Everything was perfect! The rooms are so comfortable, beds divinely soft and cosy, gas stove in the room and so peaceful and quiet! Anne is a fabulous, relaxed host. She booked a restaurant for dinner...Casa Rustica...excellent recommendation, and gave us printed out directions. Again the next day suggestions of... More

We love the Lazy Bear B & B hands down, even during this area's 1st unexpected early snow. From the beautiful vistas from every location on the property to the beautifully decorated lodge, we couldn't have asked for more. The gracious hospitality of the owners, Ann & Mark made you feel at home, and their resident loving dogs Bo &... More

This place was absolutely wonderful from the moment we finally arrived. Our sat nav decided that we had arrived when we got to the golf course even with Anne's extra instructions. The people at the golf course were very helpful telling us to have faith and keep going for another mile or 2 along the road, and the look out... More

We stayed in the hummingbird room, which accommodated 2 adults and 2 teenage boys. We had a private balcony to enjoy the amazing view of the forest and mountains. The special touches included homemade soaps in bathroom, complimentary robes, oversized bath towels, and jacuzzi tub. We loved the homemade cookies that Anne prepared and the cook to order fresh breakfast... More
