    We thoroughly enjoyed waking up with the crisp fall air at our door. We also greatly enjoyed the welcoming rooms with fire places to keep us cozy at night. Food was great and the staff members were amazing to meet!

    Stayed a week at The Banner Elk Inn and had a great time. We stayed in the bark house cabin which is is warm and comfortable. The meals at The Banner Elk Inn are fantastic - especially the famous pancakes.

    We have just left the Inn at Banner Elk after spending three super days in the Bark Cottage. The cottage is spacious and well equipped- Beverley the hostess has thought of everything you may need during your stay. Although quite close to the road there was no noise at night to disturb your sleep(I ama poor sleeper as a rule)... More

    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.
