We came for our love of the area and the history of the Mast Farm. What will bring us back was the remarkable attentiveness of the MFI staff! From a fabulous bartender to the all-night cookies to the care they showed us when one of us didn’t quite have the ability to make breakfast, the inn staff was on it. We loved our weekend at Valle Fair, and we will absolutely be back.

I want to start this review with a little history. I've visited the Mast Farm inn three times. Two with the previous owners and once recently. It's very different for several reasons. The food has changed drastically. We had such variety, beautiful plating, attention to detail with the prior chef. It appears as they have hired a less experience cook and we had basically bacon and eggs every morning in different variations. We had poached eggs that came out hard boiled. The portions are very small now. Also when we were sat before we had the most adorable print out with history about the house, local area and things to do that was addressed to us every morning. That doesn't happen anymore, it's those tiny details that make a place standout. They also on Friday and Saturdays have decided to open the bar up to the public. Well this brings a different crowd in and we had people all over the grounds viewing the property. It takes away from the quiet exclusive feel of a bed and breakfast. We pay a premium at Mast Farm Inn for the beautiful property however the food is half the name of Bed and Breakfast in addition all this tiny details mentioned above. It has changed I'm afraid not for the better and unfortunately we will not return. If you have never visited I'm sure you will love the grounds this again is someone that can compare from the previous owners.

Hello, Thank you so much for your long history with the Mast Farm Inn. Our new chef began at MFI when he was 14 and the previous owner and chef, Marie, saw something in him and began training him to cook. He loved it and under Marie's arm he became a chef and eventually left MFI to cook in Florida. When we purchased, under Marie's recommendation, we called him and he decided it was time to come home. So, we're proud of him and so are the previous owners. If your eggs were over-cooked or you wanted more food, we are always happy to give you more food or make an adjustment. Most people tell us they can't eat again until dinner after our decadent breakfasts, but again, we're always happy to provide seconds or cook your eggs to order. The previous owners are actually the ones who stopped the print-outs and they weren't in use when we purchased, but we can take a look into the older files and see what we can find. Perhaps it's a good idea to bring them back? We will take a look. Lastly, our guests have long asked for the bar to be open in the evenings and we're so excited to be able to do that. Unfortunately, in order to have a bartender available into the evenings, we have to find a revenue source for that expense, as guests drinks alone can't sustain that cost, so inviting the local community into our house has been the solution. There are locals who live next door to us that have been in Valle Crucis for decades and never been inside our house. We've found that these new customers and old neighbors have been a warm and welcoming addition to our guest experience. The locals have certainly enjoyed meeting guests and enjoying the house, and most of our guests have returned the sentiment. Thank you for your comments and for visiting with us. We understand that change is hard for everyone. If you don't visit again, we still wish you well and are grateful for your presence in our house. All the best to you.

Such a treat to step back in time. Beautifully preserved private cabin--we stayed in the Loom House, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. My husband, who is a master craftsman, loved the historic preservation. We enjoyed walking the grounds of the Inn, through the flower gardens, down to the river, and also visiting the barn with horses and a donkey. The owner and staff were all friendly and helpful. The included 2-course breakfast was hearty and delicious. (We even skipped lunch, as we were still full!) Homemade yogurt with granola and berries was so good. We love the location of the Inn. We came to hike, and were able to easily drive into Boone, or over to Linville or Blowing Rock--we felt centrally located. We highly recommend Mast Farm Inn, and we will definitely come back here.

Carol! Your presence was just a delight to us. We loved chatting with you and your husband. We're glad someone who appreciates history was in the oldest inhabitable cabin in NC. We feel lucky to have it. Thank you and we hope to see you soon!

We stayed at The Mast Farm Inn for one night on our vacation through North Carolina. It has an interesting history and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s in amazing condition despite being built in the 1800s! We stayed in the Aunt Leona room on the third floor. The room was clean and appropriately decorated with antique furniture. The spacious bathroom had a claw foot tub and separate shower. The floors were a bit squeaky, but just reflected the character of the inn. A two-course gourmet breakfast was served in the dining room. They even accommodated my gluten-free diet for an extra $5. Would recommend for those looking for a unique experience.

Dear Suzanne, Thank you so much for this lovely review! Historical preservation and modern comforts are quite the thin line to walk and we're so glad you think we're doing it right. We enjoyed having you here and I do hope you can come visit us again!

We stayed one night at The Mast Farm Inn. Picked it based on reviews and pictures. We stayed upstairs in a king room. This is a really really old property. It is very historic. I appreciate all the care involved in restoring this property. Check in was very nice and the receptionist was really very good. She gave us a nice orientation of the features of the property. When we walked into the bedroom we immediately liked the ambiance and the colors and the attention to detail of the restoration. The bed was a 4 poster and was very comfortable. The furniture was very interesting. Things kind of went downhill when we opened the wardrobe and saw the bra hanging from the hook on the door left from the last guest. The only thing that I really did not like about the room was the bathroom. The leaking drops in the ceiling were an issue. The bathtub was an old clawfoot tub with a bad paint job sitting on wooden blocks with a curtain around the tub that did not fit. For over $300 per night I expect a nice well done bathroom. The bathroom was a bad one star rated room. The grounds around the house were nicely mown but the buildings seem to need lots of restoration work. Breakfast was nicely done and tasty.

Dear Rick, Thank you so much for staying with us and for your comments. We think our receptionist, Kelley, is just a delight. We do apologize for the clothing left behind! How alarming that must have been for you. We immediately spoke with housekeeping and have some additional checks in place to ensure that doesn't happen again. Yes, we've had to squeeze some "modern" tubs into some rooms that were never meant even to have a bathroom and the process of sourcing both comfortable and period appropriate furniture has been quite the challenge. We're quite alarmed to hear about leaks from the ceiling. If we'd been notified at the time, regardless of the hour, we would have been over immediately to check on it. Yes, the age of this house is both a blessing and a curse. After your review, we've been investigating and haven't been able to replicate the problem but we are watching for it. Thanks for the feedback. We hope to have the chance to see you again and perhaps make you happier the next time!
