“The best Innkeepers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2010

The innkeepers at Taylor House Inn were the best! - Very friendly and helpful at any moment. The old farmhouse was beautiful and the mountain setting was spectacular. Wish we were there now!

Very warm and gracious owners who really made you feel at home. The breakfast was great and filling and I had a great time riding my bike afterwards in the mountain roads surrounding Valle Crucis, North Carolina.

Two couples plus my husband and I traveled from Lexington Ky on a mystery trip (only the guys knew where we were going), and when we pulled into the driveway at the Taylor House Inn, we women were delighted. The house is wonderful, relaxing, and away from the maddening crowd. Tessa and Bernard are the delightful innkeepers, and genuinely seem to enjoy what they do. We sat outside on the huge front porch, and Tessa brought us some fruit and cheese to have with our wine before dinner. We were being pampered! The rooms have just recently been redone, and are ample with large bathrooms. The bed was very comfortable, and I slept like a log until time to get up to prepare for a run. Bernard suggested a couple running routes, and 3 of us took a run through a field which was very picturesque and had soft footing. Breakfast was ready when we returned. We were treated to coffee, grapefruit, orange and cranberry juices, quiche, fried potatoes, ham, and toast. A good way to start the day!. After breakfast, the men told us to pack as we were leaving and continuing on our mystery trip - I was somewhat disappointed because the Inn was such a delightful place to stay. I hope to return and spend more time at this Inn!!

For our familly reunion this year, we choose the Taylor House Inn for the mountains, the surrounding, the peace... Being a large familly, we booked the whole inn for 5 days.
We will cherish this one forever. The place is super. The surrounding so inviting, Tessa and Bernard went out of their way to make every moments count, pointing out some attractions for both adults and kids and making sure we were taken care of at all times. Relaxing and reconnecting together while watching the children play and run in the yard: Priceless, a little slice of heaven.
We were in the Attic Suite.... Spacious, inviting , fresh flowers every day, and of course the grand children jumping on our bed in the morning.
It was hard to part again with our familly, but also felt the same about the Taylor House Inn, Tessa and Bernard... Perfect vacation, Priceless memories.....

The Taylor House Inn is an enjoyable experience from start to finish. Tessa and Bernard Russo are gracious and attentive hosts. Tessa's culinary skill is supurb...her gazpacho was the best we have ever tasted...and that includes numerous variations of it throughout Spain. The inn is comfortable and tastefully decorated; and the artwork alone is worth a visit. We cannot wait to return!

Stayed one night for a cycling race and received a complete relaxing experience. I was trying to find a place convenient to the race start and not really trying to find a quality hotel or B&B. It was just one night.... And after one night I will stay here every year. It was away from the other B&B's on the main drag. Secluded in the woods, very little traffic, lots of green in every direction. The owners were very caring without pressuring or over-doing it. Homemade pie, cookies and other snacks were always out for us. I left before breakfast and to my surprise they gave me a care package the night before. They really cared. I was only looking for a nights sleep and received a complete relaxing experience. It helped my performance the next day. I was able to sleep well and forget the pre-race jitters.
