Superbly run and managed, gracious and helpful hosts, excellent food and comfortable accommodations, and lovely fellow travelers to meet and enjoy breakfast with! Grounds are lovely to stroll around and enjoy the flowers and foliage, too!

My husband and I spent two nights here over Labor Day weekend. We wanted a relaxing retreat away from the stresses of everyday life and were not disappointed. The friendly innkeepers were welcoming and accommodating. Our room (Hickory) was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast both mornings was delicious. The gardens are gorgeous, and the vast wraparound porch is perfect for lounging... More

This is the third B&B we have stayed at within the last 3 months. Our room was lovely, clean and comfortable. We liked the B&B because it was small - only 5 rooms. Sitting on the front porch at night with a bottle of wine was very enjoyable (except for the noise from the busy road out front.) But, if... More

On arriving at Lovill House this time we were introduced to the other guests, a mother and daughter. It turned out that the mother is a Lovill, and could recall visits to the house when she was a girl. For an old house it's in extremely good condition, with beautiful plantings outside and impressive woodwork inside. Since we had stayed... More

The Lovill House Inn is a lovely B&B with delicious breakfasts and gracious hosts. The gardens are beautiful, including a gazebo with swing, and waterfall up the hill. It's near downtown Boone, so shops and restaurants are nearby. Rooms were very clean and beds quite comfortable. Definitely recommend the Lovill House Inn.

Pros: Registration was easy and efficient, room (one of the least expensive )was a nice size, very clean, and had a bath with shower and tub. House had beautiful architecture and interesting history.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay immensely. We were put up in the Hickory Room. The hospitality.... accommodation, location, amenities, food, service.. all were top notch. We definitely plan to come back for another weekend getaway and are recommending this B&B to our family and friends.
