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

This was our first trip to a B&B. After reading a lot of great reviews, I decided on booking the weekend for my wife and I to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We were anxious not knowing what to expect but when we arrived all of that anxiousness was gone once we recieved our warm reception from Tom and Deede.... More

If you are looking for the best BB in the Boone NC area here it is! We stayed in the Aunt Dee room very cabin like. The breakfast was d-e-l-i-c-I-o-u-s ! This was our 2nd time and it will not be our last. Dee dee and Tom were the best.

My husband and I wanted to get away from the beaches of Charleston (imagine that) and get up into the fresh mountain air we missed so much since we recently located to the South from Seattle Washington. We could not have chosen a better place than The Baird House. Right as we pulled up we were greeted by their yellow... More

Chock full of history, this lovely inn faces a peaceful river and bucolic setting that begs relaxation. Deede and Tom Hinson, the innkeepers, are delightful, knowlegeable about the area, and eager to share that knowledge for the possibilities of a memorable vacation. Built in 1790, the Inn is beautifully appointed. Deede fixes an incredible breakfast (cat head biscuits that will... More
