We stayed at the Inn this past weekend for the Beech Mountain Metric cycling event in Banner Elk. This worked out perfectly for my husband because the starting line was just outside of our front door! The breakfasts were delicious and quite filling! Frank and Karen were great and very accommodating. I very much enjoyed the sitting area, which was... More

Our family just returned from a long weekend in Banner Elk, NC, where we attended my son's graduation ceremony at Lees-McRae college plus a wedding in a friend's family in nearby Blowing Rock. We needed downtown accommodations in Banner Elk so we could walk to college events. My family prefers the B&B experience to hotels. We booked two rooms, one... More

We found the Azalea Inn just driving through Banner Elk looking for a place to spend the night on a road trip. We loved it so much we spent another night. There are cozy rooms upstairs in the main house but we opted for one of the one-bedroom units out back. Full kitchen, living room, very comfortable bed, big bathroom... More

This was our 3rd visit with Frank and Karen. (they are so friendly you think you are visiting long time friends) The Rooms, Breakfast, location and over all beauty of the Azalea Inn itself,is the making of a great get away to relax and chill! We will be going back more often now that retirement is my full time "work"

The Azalea is one of the most perfectly relaxing places in the North Carolina mountains you could ever want to find. It's unusual to say everything about our stay was perfect, but it truly was. From the beautiful flowers everywhere you looked, to the immaculate and charming rooms, there was nothing that was lacking to please the most discerning traveler.... More

My husband and I spent this past weekend at the Azalea Inn B&B and we will definitely return. The innkeepers were very attentive to every detail from the lovely grounds to the immaculately clean room. Breakfast exceeded our expectations! Located right in the town of Banner Elk, we walked to dinner just a block over at the wonderful Banner Elk... More

The owners Frank and Karen are back from a 2 year mission trip to Tanzania. The inn and grounds are immaculate and charming and well situated in the heart of Banner Elk. We got to see many of the rooms in the main building as it was a quiet Sunday night just before the summer season. All are quite nice... More

Spent Fri and Sat eve at this B&B while in Banner Elk. Amy was very accommodating on the phone when making the booking, and both she and Greg were welcoming when we got there. Facility was basic in its charm but homey and clean, and we felt we got value for our money. Located right in the heart of Banner... More

We are very sorry that you had a bad experience at Azalea Inn B&B. We, the owners, have returned from our 2 year mission experience in East Africa. We were very surprised to learn that the people who were working here did not prepare breakfast for guests and did not maintain the property. The inn was closed all winter while... More

Quaint, clean, super friendly and fabulous location. In the heart of Banner Elk, minutes walk to restaurants and shops. Amy and Greg were great full of interesting conversation and local advice as well as making us feel very much at home for our week long stay. Highly recommended.
