I have stayed here on two separate occasions in the past year and both times were amazing! The lodge itself is beautiful, the rooms are very comfortable and welcoming and the Bella the dog is adorable. There are tons of fun things to do in the area. The breakfast they serve is also delicious. I can't wait for our next...

When you visit enough B&Bs, you find some where you just don't click, some that are OK, and some where you feel right at home. We felt right at home here in this beautiful two-story log inn perched on a hillside with fabulous views. Anne, fantastic job of making us feel welcome and sorry for leaving our lunches in your...

A wonderful, relaxing visit once you get to the lodge. If you are in a car skip to the second paragraph. We were motorcycle touring the Blue Ridge Parkway. I called and asked about paved access and was correctly told it was paved all the way. What I failed to ask was how steep and how narrow? Ok, so after...

Beautiful cabin decorated with antiques from all over the world. Ann the owner has such a warm personality that you feel that you've been friends forever. We called about a same day reservation and were able to pick out the room we wanted to stay in upon our arrival. Gorgeous views, breakfast was the best we've ever had, cookies and...

We went here for anniversary, and really enjoyed the comfort and coziness of the house. You will feel at home the minute you walk in and see their dog at their door. The owners are friendly and make the best breakfast ever! Thanks for a great visit.

My stay at Lazy Bear Lodge was extraordinarily comfortable and relaxing. Anne and Mark Winkelman, hosts, are warm and engaging without being smothering. They gave many helpful tips on restaurants and other good places to go. There were fresh, homemade cookies and cake when I arrived. Breakfasts are served within a generous range of time at the guests' convenience. There...

When you walk in the cabin is a 2 million dollar cabin that spares no expense. It has incredibly relaxed comfort starting from the owner. She took us to the kitchen the second we checked in a said, " if you like cheese cake or cookies I just baked them 20 min ago, help your self". I don't eat desserts...

Wow! what a WILD and FANTASTIC review. My friends and I have had barrels of laughter reading about your stay, you should seriously think about writing for a career. That being said, we need to clarify a few things. 1. Miss Bella’s feelings were hurt, she has been on a diet and currently weighs 130 pounds. 2. I’m glad you...

We spent one night here while driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is located on a hillside overlooking the Valle Crucis. We had some trouble with directions - the sigh for one of the turn offs was hard to find and there was a lot going on at the intersection. We called to clarify and finally made it ok. The...

My husband and I arrived at this lodge after a full day's gorgeous drive across the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The living quarter and room was delightful and nothing was too much trouble for Anne who...
