Anne is a great host! She and her husband (and Bella) provide a welcoming retreat abundant with wildlife and outstanding views. You will enjoy the delicious breakfast (and the Mystery Butter) while watching the squirrels and birds from the large windows or on the porch. Loved our stay there!

Absolutely loved our first experience with a Bed & Breakfast. The room was fantastic the bed was so comfortable I slept like a 2 year old. It was a stress free enjoyable experience. Ann is a great hostess! The view was fabulous. We have already booked again for next year!

The Lazy Bear Lodge is among the best Bed and Breakfast Inns we have stayed with. Anne made every guest feel special and pampered. The breakfasts were phenomenal. And Bela, the Newfoundland, was a treasure. The wildlife, the southern hospitality, and the tranquil setting made this a wonderful three day getaway for us. Thank you Anne!

Anne the innkeeper took wonderful care of us for the couple days we were there. It feels just like home, but with much better breakfasts than home (I'm the breakfast cook when not at the... More

This home was built to be a B@B, so you get spacious bedrooms and baths. Ours was supposed to be one of the smallest but we had a queen bed and bath with a jacuzzi and seperate roomy shower and stove/heater for the cold days plus two chairs and a tv/dvd with a lot of movies available if you wish...

My wife and I have stayed in numerous bed & breakfast establishments in the United States and the United Kingdom over the last several years. The Lazy Bear ranks as one of the absolute best. We were greeted on arrival and given a quick tour of the lower level. There was a pot of hot water for tea and a... More

Fabulous attention to detail; great breakfast; comfortable and scenic rooms. This is not my first visit here and I cannot wait for the return trip! I love the rooms with a view of the mountains and private porches. Every detail is appreciated!
