    The Taylor House is a beautiful old inn in Valle Crucis. The checkin with Tessa was easy, room was adequate size and supplied with toiletries, snacks and drinks. Linens and overall room were clean. Simple Continental style Breakfast delivered to room each morning. Coffee bar available. We did not spend time in main den due to covid. Unfortunately this beautiful, historic home is in need of maintenance and care. Much needed paint and repairs throughout the property. It is for sale... the right buyer has a gem. I hope it sells and receives the updates it needs. It can truly be beautiful once again!

    Very Nice B&B in Valle Crucis

    My wife and I stayed in the Flower Cottage, which is to the left of the main house. It is somewhat smaller than it appears in the photos, about the size of a standard hotel room. The innkeepers stocked it with a lot of thoughtful touches, like robes, wine, snacks, and Hershey's kisses. Since our trip was during the COVID-19 pandemic, we weren't able to have their famous breakfast buffet, but the tray provided for breakfast had good, hot food. The proprietor, Bernard, seemed very nice, but we didn't spend much time in the main house so as to keep our germs to ourselves (though neither of us has any symptoms). I may have gone for the fifth star in normal circumstances. The only two negative things are that the WiFi in the Flower Cottage is spotty, going in and out, up and down; signal interruptions are frequent. When it is there, it is still pretty slow, but that is to be expected in a rural location. There was a refrigerator, but no microwave. The shower is small, but there was plenty of hot water. The other one is that there was no walkway from the parking lot to the Flower Cottage. As there were a number of showers and thunderstorms during our three day stay, our shoes got a bit wet.

    nique Stay

    Very unique and comfortable accommodations. The owner was friendly and helpful. This old home is historical and quite nice. We hiked to the nearby falls and fields. So beautiful an environment in the Cross Valley.

    Just okay

    With a rating above 9, we expected more. Noisy air conditioner coupled with a mattress that you sink to the middle add to the just okay rating. The breakfast looked and tasted like it was items bought at a Walmart—definitely not prepared by a cook in their kitchen.

    Relaxing and safe environment.

    Great stay. COVID19 precautions. Temp. check at check in. Host wore mask, gloves and cleaned tablet after sign-in. Stayed in individual cabin with breakfast delivered to door each morning. Enjoyed dining on the porch. Even though the B&B is in a beautiful area, the traffic on the road was loud at times.

    The property was largely preserved in it’s historic significance. It was like gathering at a stately home from the past. Many of the paintings in the house seemed too modern/abstract, and did not reflect the same decorum, which was a minor distraction. Overall, it was a highly pleasant and enjoyable week-end!
