Let me begin by saying that BBs are not hotels, and there is no escaping conversations at breakfast, the feeling of being in someone else's house, and the quirkiness that comes with most houses. If these are not for you then don't go to a BB. We have stayed in a number of BBs and this would be the best... More

We stayed here for our anniversary and the only room left was the downstairs room - it was a large room but not comfortable. Judging by all the others reviews we must have picked an "off" week. Our room was very noisy and did not feel at all private ie. the blinds are cheap plastic that do not completely close,... More

Everything about this B&B was excellent, but be sure to arrive from the main road, and not the back road from Banner Elk which is torn up.

This was an absolutely amazing find. This B&B is about halfway between Boone and Banner Elk. Extremely convenient to Grandfather Mountain and Blowing Rock (We even drove to Roan, TN one day, which was about 45 mins. away) The innkeepers (Tessa & Bernard) are extremely friendly and helpful. We had to leave early one day and would have missed breakfast.... More

We have now stayed at the Taylor House Inn three times. Each time it has become more like a family visit. We will be back.

Quiet, pastoral setting right next to the attractions of Boone and the mountains, but without the hubbub. And delicious breakfast!

My fiancee and I went up to Taylor House to have a middle-of-the-week "weekend getaway" (she works weekends). We saw everything online, made reservations, etc., and came up for our stay. We got a bit lost on the way inn, so we called - and Tessa expertly, and happily, directed us in. So far, so good. Then, when we arrived,... More

The Taylor House Inn was a pleasant surprise. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The house was beautifully decorated with stunning artwork. The innkeepers were delightful and friendly, hailing from France and Italy. We enjoyed chatting with them about their amazing travels over a five star French breakfast of pastry and souflee. The overall experience felt like it could... More
