Stayed with a group for a long weekend. Property is located on a mountainside about 10 minutes from downtown Banner Elk, NC. Excellent views; road noise isn't noticeable. Staff is some of the friendliest I've ever met in a hotel or B&B. They went out of their way to make everyone in our group feel welcome and comfortable. Food was... More

I had my small wedding here over Memorial Day Weekend, and all of my 45 guests stayed at the Inn and in the Hunt Cabin. The whole experience, from when we booked the wedding to when we checked out, was nothing short of exquisite. My husband and I stayed at the Inn on two separate occasions prior to the wedding...

Our stay here was exceptional! All of the staff were courteous and very helpful...going out of their way if need be with a smile on their faces at all times. The room was adorable with knotty pine throughout. Wifi was offered free with the room but it was hard to get a connection unless you went near or in the... More

We checked in at the restaurant. The restaurant waiter was also checking in for the lodge. We got the keys and went to check the room. The sheets were dirty with hair and spots. We went back and requested a new set of sheets. The waiter was very helpful and ran down got a new set of sheets and towels.... More

We stayed in the Diamond Ridge room. While the staff was mostly attentive the facility and the dinner were disappointing. Rustic is fine. Cozy is fine. Even extension cords and chipping ceilings can be overlooked. However, the smokey smell in thee room was overpowering to the point that our eyes were burning. We had to keep the outside door open...

I took my wife here for a surprise trip. It was great. So beautiful and the view was out of this world. The fireplaces were a nice touch! There is so much to do around there... Boone, Elk River Falls, zip lining, hiking... The service was great and they were very helpful. The breakfast was very filling and good. The... More

I gave it an average because of its location, nice grounds and "charm". Let me start with the room. I know I shouldn't trust room pictures...so don't trust the ones you see on the website. The room was large which is a plus. The TV was small and had jumbled wires everywhere. It doesn't take much effort to make it... More

After reading previous Trip Advisor reviews, Archers Mountain Inn seemed perfect for tired PhD student who needed a relaxing getaway to the mountains. I'm a very low maintenance person and don't require overwhelming amounts of hospitality, but the service at this place was abysmal. The lack of professionalism I experienced from the manager was almost unbelievable. He blamed his actions... More

My wife and I were very happy with the Carolina Room. It was spacious (table & couch easily fit) with a kitchenette (small refrigerator, ice box in it, and microwave). The bed was comfortably firm and they had all the bathroom items (towels, soap, shampoo, etc.) on hand. The view of the mountains (especially Grandfather Mountain) was spectacular from our... More
