Bernard and Tessa are delightful hosts and the stately B&B felt like going home. We will definitely be staying with them again. I didn't see it mentioned on the web-site, but the rooms do not have TV's. For us, it was nice to unplug. But some people may want to know ahead of time that there's no TV in their room. The location is also perfect, right between Banner Elk and Boone, but far enough down a winding country road that you just want to roll the car windows down and get lost in the peacefulness of it all. We even had deer in the front yard late afternoon. We made lots of new friends drinking wine on the front porch, and I can't imagine a more perfect weekend spent in the High Country! Thank you Bernard and Tessa for making us feel like family!

Let me first say that if you are on the fence about which B&B to choose for this area, look no farther, this is most certainly the place to stay. The owners, Tessa and Bernard, are absolutely wonderful! Bernard can plan your day with ease, pointing out all of the wonderful sites and attractions to visit during your stay, complete with a map and highlighted route so you can head out on your worry free day. Tessa can you tell you about all the wonderful restaurants in the area, and believe me you will want to stop by each one! We stayed in the Flower Cottage for 3 nights, and it was very cute and quaint and fit our needs well. It was cleaned every day and smelled fresh, we liked having our own little area just to ourselves. We also enjoyed coming into the main house and having the most delicious breakfast in the morning, and visiting with Tessa and Bernard, which these two are a hoot, before heading out for the day. Tessa I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations, you are very loving and heart warming and just an all around genuine person. They have a sign that says, " You enter as guests and leave as friends". I believe for us it was you enter as guests and leave as family, because they made us feel like we were home with family. I can honestly say that I didn't want to leave! Thank you Tessa and Bernard, and my husband and I look forward to seeing you again soon!!

We just returned from a lovely 3-day, 2-night tour of the High Country area of NC and were very pleased with our stay at the Taylor House Inn. Our hosts, Bernard and Tessa were very pleasant and helpful at every opportunity. The finely prepared morning breakfasts were delightful and quite delicious! This location in Valle Crucis is very convenient to nearby cities such as Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk but offers a nice, quiet escape to relax and enjoy the countryside as well. The nearby 'Over Yonder' restaurant was a welcome recommendation [try the rainbow trout or triggerfish!] and the original Mast General Store is just around the corner. Plus, if you're up for a nice hike, the Crab Orchard Falls trail is easily accessible from the Inn. We enjoyed the ~1-mile round-trip hike after breakfast on our final morning before departing and were not disappointed. Would recommend the Taylor House Inn to others and hope to return again ourselves in the near future.

The Taylor House is a very spacious beautiful old country house with a lovely expansive front porch! We were cheerfully greeted by Tessa when we arrived and found her and Bernard to be very warm and helpful our entire two night stay. Our room was spacious and clean and very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was beautifully presented and delicious! We were especially pleased with Tessa's suggestion for dinner at Over Yonder. The food was amazing! We very much enjoyed our stay at The Taylor House Inn! We hope to stay there again sometime!
