Less than 20 years or so ago you would have been hard pressed to find one of the large, national hotel brands as a Boone NC Lodging choice. There were a few sizeable hotel options “back in the day”, including those like the old Daniel Boone Hotel that used to exist in Downtown Boone and the Green Park Inn in Blowing Rock (which still operates as they celebrate 126 years in business).
Roadside inns began popping up in the late 50s and 60s and some of those are still in operation and remain popular with guests who want to travel up to the mountains and back in time a little bit.
Nowadays Boone NC Lodging choices more resemble most cities across America as you can find most all of the best national hotel brands such as LaQuinta, Hampton Inn, Fairfield, Courtyard, etc. Those are all nice options, however if you are like most people who travel to the mountains, you want a mix of “a step back in time” and luxury (or at least the comforts of home). For many travelers that option is a Bed & Breakfast inn. According to Trip Advisor there are (9) B&Bs in Boone, North Carolina but only ONE that is honored as the #1 choice in bed & breakfast inns and that is the Lovill House Inn.
One look at the online reviews will sum up what makes Lovill House Inn a “must stay”.
