I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Comfortable beds, delicious food, warm and welcoming atmosphere, sparkling clean, soft quality linens and towels, lovely place -- really, you can't go wrong here. It's all-around excellent.

I had the joy of staying here this week. The innkeeper was very accommodating considering it was the off season and she may have actually been closed. I had a wonderful room within it with a very comfy bed and very clean accommodations. I can without a doubt recommend this place for a stay . I will definitely be back.

The owner was so thoughtful and left a plate full of fruit and treats for the morning. My husband and I had our reception that night... More

On our stay we had a number of folks with dietary issues. Beverly accommodated everyone so well. A nice bunch of folks to talk with each morning.... most of us usually talked for hours together afterward. The breakfasts were very well done, and a bit unique so that was even more fun to eat something different. A nice quiet place... More

John & Teresa had a wonderful stay at Beverly's B & B. It felt like home with Beverly's hospitality. She had everything laid out for daily refreshments. She makes a great omelet with spinach & cottage cheese. She makes great pancakes with cottage cheese, blueberries & rasberries inside. Beverly was easy to talk to & was a great conversationalist.

My wife and I spent our Valentines holiday in Banner Elk and stayed at The Banner Elk Inn, B&B and Cottages. The owner/hostess should get an award for her congeniality. Her breakfasts are superb. We even had a classical guitarist who played for the guests. The accomodations are first class. Every thing is spot on for having a memorable time... More

Thank you! You are most gracious -- and it really was a wonderful weekend ! 14 inches of snow, 60% repeat guests, and a classical guitarist playing beautiful music at breakfast time. Life is good. More

We spent a snowy weekend in the French Provincial Cottage in January and can't say enough about it! After a long drive we arrived late at night at the cutest cottage...lights on, warmed up perfectly, with home baked cookies and bread on the table! What a treat! The cottage was spacious, beautifully decorated, and super clean! The beds were very... More

My husband and I spent a couple of nights at this b&b and truly loved it. Miss Beverly made a great healthy breakfast. The rooms are very clean and the environment is cozy. Very close to all the outdoor activities in the area. Thank you Ms. Beverly. Claudia and Justin

Our daughter & her husband wanted to take our labs to see snow & a friend recommended Banner Elk Inn because it is pet friendly. We (4 adults and two 80 lb labs) stayed in the 2 cottages which are beautifully decorated. You would never know pets were allowed. The cottages were beyond extremely clean with no "deodorizing scent". The... More
