We stayed in June and had a fantastic time. The room was clean and inviting with a great porch with a swing and rocking chairs. The river was nice to cool off in and to look for local stones.There was an apple tree and blackberry patch awaiting your picking. Breakfast was awesome. Make sure and get the recipe for the... More

We stayed here last year and decided that we enjoyed it so much that we would return again this year. Tom and Deede are such wonderful hosts and always makes us feel like we are at home. We chose the Mary Elizabeth room this year which is the only room downstairs. It has a wood fireplace that we just gave... More

We had an awesome stay at the Baird House! It was very relaxing and so laid back. We were welcomed in like we were family. Great food....especially the apple french toast with apple cider sauce but then again, the bacon wasn't too bad either (haha). Tom and Deede are such gracious hosts. They have done a tremendous job revitalizing this... More

Proprietors Deede and Tom Hinson provide an extraordinary experience. There is always stimulating conversation, lots of laughter, a scrumptious breakfast and chunky cookies to take on your afternoon rambles. Valle Crucis is a charming, rugged valley surrounded by tree-covered hills which provides a beautiful setting at any time of year. We visit the Baird House at least once a year... More

We have been staying with the Baird House for over 14 years. Every time is like coming home for us. Tom and Deede have treated us like family since the very first visit and we cannot imagine staying anywhere else when we visit the High Country. They are the very best at what they do...the rooms are beautiful, clean, comfortable,... More

This place is wonderful! Deede and Tom are the greatest! You can feel the warmth when you enter their home! We felt like family from the time we met them. The amazing breakfast and fresh baked chocolate chip cookies were an added bonus to this couple! We will be back as long as they are there! We took their suggestions... More

This is our second stay at the Baird House and it was better than the first. We stayed in the Appleview room for 3 nights as a "Mommy & Daddy" vacation without our kiddo just for some rest, relaxation, and fishing. There could not be a more perfect spot in the world. The room is perfect and we were even... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in the Appleview Room at the Baird House to celebrate our 45th anniversary. I had previously not wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast, but the Baird House changed my mind! This is a place where one feels at home visiting good, old friends. Tom and Deede shared so much about the... More

I'm so glad we chose this B&B for our weekend getaway....we eased into relaxation in the rockers overlooking a venerable apple tree and a young bluebird family busy raising their young. reveling in the sounds of nature, birds singing, rustling leaves and frogs singing us to sleep down by the river...Our room was perfect and the setting even more so....

We stayed at this B&B for two nights and the owners couldn't have been nicer and more caring. The room was lovely and Tom told us so much about the history of the house and how they came to own it. They had coffee or tea for us at night along with yummy cake if we wanted it. We got... More
