We were greeted by Jade who was pleasant and helpful. Our "Couples" room was cozy, comfortable and inexpensive. We were concerned about the yipping dog caged in the living room, but he quieted down at night. Since we were the only guests the house was quiet and we slept well. We were given 3 breakfast choices, all sounded great. Breakfast... More

We just had a tremendous experience in Banner Elk and Banner Haven played an integral role in making us feel at home and welcome! We were gifted a weekend here from our kids to take in fall colors, but came away with so much more...We just stayed there last weekend, and were extremely pleased with our stay...The owners were away,...

I will start with our experience from the beginning. Upon entering the residence we were barely greeted by who we assume to be was the caretaker of the house since we never met nor saw the innkeepers. The caretaker never gave us her name and all she asked was "have you stayed at a B&B before?" When we stated yes... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't have the experience you expected. Unfortunately, I had kidney stone surgery a few days before you arrived and may have still been at the hospital, while you were at the property. Our daughter did her best to handle everything, until someone arrived to help. This was obviously beyond my control and... More

Banner Elk is an expensive town to visit and Banner Haven has some of the best prices around, but there is a reason. Our room was separated from the bathroom by a common hallway. The bath itself was a Do-It-Yourselfer's nightmare. It was decorated in early plumbing store. The faucet in the sink (wooden bowl) was reversed and the fixture... More

We are sorry you had a bad experience with the bathroom. Our website does state the bathroom is across the hallway, and this is very common with older bed and breakfasts. As our property was constructed in 1910, the bathroom is decorated with vintage pieces, like the claw foot slipper tub. The exposed copper pipe is very period appropriate and... More

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
