We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful time in the High Country! To start, the Gardners were very welcoming. I was very impressed with their knowledge of the area, things to do, the history, and how to get anywhere we wanted to go. I thought breakfast was delicious! You can tell they have put a lot of...

The cabin was well maintained and warm. Because of renovations, they just gave coupons for breakfast at a restaurant. But the folks were really nice and seemed glad to have us. Too cold to enjoy the deck, but we'll try that another time.

My Hubby & I recently took off for a quick getaway trip to the mountains & as a matter of luck accidentally found this little Haven in the heart of Banner Elk. Honestly, we would have loved to stay in the cabin, but since it was already occupied we definitely plan to return and reserve it in advance next time.... More

We stayed at the Creekside Cabin last week and had a fanastic time. It was clean, quiet, peaceful, charming, and the owners were so lovely. There was a little back porch with chairs that we enjoyed playing cards on and listening to the creek below. Huge yard for my son to run around with the fall leaves falling around him.... More

We have stayed here a couple times, since they opened last year. It's close to down town Banner Elk and a wonderful place to stay. The Creekside Cabin overlooks a small brook that feeds into Elk River. Sitting on the cabin's back deck, you have complete privacy. No other cabins, houses, or people are visible. You only see the creek... More

The Couples Retreat Room is a cute little getaway with just enough room for tow people looking for a little privacy, peace, and quiet. The young couple operating Banner Haven are extremely pleasant and friendly. They are knowledgable about the area and what's going on. Although the bathroom is located across the hall, it's private and just a couple steps... More

Stayed for a weekend in a cabin. Cabin was clean and spacious. Big yard if the kids want to run around. From rear balcony, all you can see is woods and the nice, bubbling creek. ( awesome to hear it at night, when you're going to sleep ) Owners were absolutely accommodating to our needs!

The area is beautiful; we wanted to escape a hectic week (down the mountain) and bring our dog. For the price, Banner Haven, filled the bill. The path to the room requires a little maneuvering. The path stones are irregular and inconveniently placed. the stairway to the room is wooden, steep and not great for carrying luggage if you're a... More

Very cozy place with awesome owners. They are so friendly and would do anything for you. We really enjoyed our visit! The area is so laid back. You can really enjoy yourself and unwind. We would def recommend this to friends and family.

Excellent! Beautiful area, the mountains, shops, all of it!! The cabin is great, we had no problem settling in and being very cozy! Relaxing on the back porch, sitting around a roaring fire, hiking in the woods or mining for gems! Can't wait to go back for some excellent trout fishing!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Banner Haven (Formerly Irmolot Lodge) is nestled at the foot of Beech Mountain North Carolina, near Grandfather Mountain. Nearby activities include skiing and snow tubing in the winter. In the summer guests can fish, birdwatch, hike, bike, whitewater rafting, attend festivals, and enjoy beautiful weather, 90% of the time. If you're planning a vacation or visit to the NC High Country, Banner Elk is ideally situated and close to Hickory, Boone, Tennessee, and Asheville. Banner Haven offers several breakfast options. The conventional B&B route is always available, however, guests that want a little more flexibility, can choose one of four local restaurants where breakfast is serves until 11am every day. This is the only bed and breakfast with a "sleep-late-option". ... more   less
