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!

Every thing was clean and neat. Staff and owners were extremely nice. We enjoyed getting to know Bella. Breakfast was wonderful. We enjoyed sleeping with the door to balcony open and sleeping to the birds chirping, wind blowing, and the sound of the creek. So peacful.

This amazing hidden gem is beautifully nestled within the winding hills of Valle Crucis. You'll find gorgeous views from any angle in this B&B! Whether it is sitting on the back deck with picturesque views of the mountains or looking over the thoughtfully landscaped gardens and Koi pond. You are sure to spy many of the resident woodland creatures to... More

We have stayed in a goodly number of B & Bs over the last six years or so, and all have been quite comfortable and pleasant. Lazy Bear, however, is in a class by itself—the class of magnificent, superb and wonderful. Perched just below the crown of a mountain, its back porches and balconies afford a view through the tops... More

This was the second stop on our tour of N&S Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. We were met by Bella the Newfoundland, who lies around waiting to have her tummy rubbed. Nice life! We had a lovely room on the corner on the same floor as the breakfast room with wonderful views to the green hills. The bird feeders attracted all... More

At the tip-top of the windy Lazy Bear Trail drive, snuggled low into the side of the mountain lays the Lazy Bear Lodge. Bella, the sweet family hound, will welcome you with deep baritone woofs and a few wags as you come down the cobblestone walkway past the Koi pond. Even during fall, when the leaves covered much of the... More

I just can't say enough nice things about this wonderful B&B. The Lazy Bear Lodge is a beautiful house perched on a hillside just over 3K feet in elevation, nestled among hardwood trees near Valle Crucis. From the moment you approach the custom-designed front door along a path that wanders through the lush garden and past the babbling koi pond,... More
