We were visitng the NC mountains for our vacation and made the Lazy Bear Lodge the first stop of the trip after a 10 hour drive. We stayed on the first floor in Black Bear. The room was a very nice size and the bed was very comfortable. Lots of very nice decorative touches in the room as well as the whole Inn. The gardens, pond and view from the deck are beautiful. Loved having our own little private section of deck to sit and have coffee in the morming while viewing the wild life. Breakfast was good. Would recommend.

I don't easily give 5 star reviews, but Lazy Bear deserves one. Honestly, I can't find anything wrong with the place. My wife is not a big fan of huge dogs, but the two here, Bela and Bo, are so well behaved that they are an enhancement to the inn. Our room is spacious, clean and has a great view. Anne, the innkeeper could not be nicer or more helpful. Breakfast is great, especially if the weather is good and you can eat on the deck. I truly enjoyed viewing the deer, turkey, humming birds and flying squirrels from the deck. We will be back.

Beautiful settings, feels remote because is so quiet, yet close to great restaurants and fun outings. Hosts are gracious and accomodating. Rooms are extra comfortable. Everything we were looking for for a 3-day vacation!

Had another outstanding time at the Lazy Bear for 5 fun filled days! The accomodations are lovely with heavenly beds, real fireplace in great room and electric ones in room plus comfortable sitting chairs and a great view of the mountains from my balcony. Anne and Mark are wonderful hosts and have delicious breakfasts every day and variety! They are warm, and so helpful in ideas about dining out and outings. I went to the frescoes in West Jefferson and they were so pretty and the old churches were charming. I especially enjoyed the wild game restaurant called the Gamekeeper and the ostrich which was better than steak! I have been going to Lazy Bear for a few years and enjoy it more every year. A must go to place!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great. I especially liked the ones with balconies and views of the mountains!

Although our stay was only one night, I cannot say enough good things about this B & B. The setting in the hills of North Carolina was breathtaking with spectacular views of the mountains. The lodge was cozy and the amenities were "top notch." The owners were extremely gracious and the breakfast was 5 star. As we travel through that area several times each year we plan to stay at the lodge whenever possible.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the mountains have the best view.

We stayed here for valentines day and fortunately it was on a Thursday because there was only one other couple at the Lodge. It was an absolutely wonderful lodge. We spent our Valentine's day window shopping at Blowing rock, talking by the fire, having a gourmet dinner delivered to the lodge, and finally a nice bubble bath. The lodge is very well designed and nicely decorated, it felt authentic and true to what a cozy little lodge would feel like. Anne and Mark were wonderful hosts! They were helpful and provided us with places to eat and shop. Breakfast was excellent and i loved that music played throughout the lodge. Very relaxing! The lodge is just very picturesque. Their dogs were adorable giant furballs. I highly recommend this place for anyone needing a getaway from civilization.

Room Tip: The Best Room is lost creek. It has a gorgeous view. A Jacuzzi tub that can fit two regular sized pe...
