We recently stayed in the Briarwood cottages with our two dogs. We appreciated the fact there was a large deck with a gate so we could relax outside on the with the dogs. Our room was comfortable and well laid out with comfortable furniture and it was bright and really a nice set up. Beverly was super and accommodating to... More

Two weeks of loving care, delicious breakfasts, fresh, baked cookies, a lovely garden, and most comfortable cabin, with a kingsize bed, superior quality linens and thick, large bath towels, established the foundation for our lovely vacation; of course,the latter could not occur without the Innkeeper, our "hostess with the mostest," Beverly. She is a font of information about the area... More

With two small exceptions, we really loved our stay at Banner Elk Inn. We chose one of the cottages, so we were fully equipped for a nice visit. Everything was comfortable and lovely. (As a shower taker, it was quite a challenge getting in and out of the wide and deep soaking tub, but it was nice, once you got... More

What a unique place to stay, We were in the Bark cabin, across the garden and the cottages from the main house. It was private and just like a luxurious mountain cabin. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in with silky sheets and lots of soft pillows. We went to the main house for a... More

We loved our stay at the Banner Elk Inn. Beverly had home made cookies and breads waiting for us when we arrived. We stayed in an upstairs room with a king sized bed and it was very comfortable and clean. Beverly's antiques and collected treasures make it interesting and fun. Breakfast was delicious - enjoyed watching all the beautiful birds... More

We stayed in one of the cottages, the Bark House. But it's much more than a cottage--it's really a little house with two bedrooms, 1 and 3/4 baths, a kitchen, and living room. It's very new, and Beverly, the owner, has designed it beautifully. Beverly is an artist, and the interior design really shows it. Lovely light-colored wood paneling, flooring,... More

My wife and I have had our happiest holidays at Banner Elk. We have stayed in 5 star hotels that don't come near this B&B. We return year after year, now with our grandchildren. Parks, forested mountain, streams short walk. Down town and restaurants also a short walk.

Our stay at the Banner elk inn was amazing! Ms. Beverly's hospitality is unmatched. She is one of the most kind and accommodating individuals my wife and I have ever met. She turned what began as a stressful time, due to the loss of our car keys, into a relaxing and blessed stay, not to mention she is a fantastic... More

We stay in the Briarwood Cottages. It was a last minute vacation and Beverly made the place wonderful to stay in at such a short notice. The rooms are fantastic, the bath is so cozy, the view is so sweet, the yard is incredible, and the breakfast was to die for. All in all a wonderful stay and a great... More

I have lost count of how many times I have now stayed here! And I know there will be many more stays in the future! The location is perfect- walk or ride to your dinner destination, take a walk around the park in an incredible setting or sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the view- none will disappoint.... More
