We purchased a Living Social deal, which usually means a facility is fixing up and trying to become a contender in the market. The term "rustic" was used, but in this case, I find that to simply be a euphemism for "seedy and run-down" with weeds in what once were flower beds, the screen door that fell off when we... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice, both times in the Roof Garden room. I can't say that I would recommend a stay if you were in a different room, but the Roof Garden room is spectacular. The deck is incredibly spacious. (You could invite plenty of friends over to hang out.) What really makes the room stand out... More

We found the Inn on Living Social with an exceptional offer, but we'll be back with normal fares. If your looking for a Ritz Carlton this isn't it. But it is charming, friendly, very clean, large rooms with a mini kitchen. A very good restaurant.

My husband and I stayed here for a week to celebrate our anniversary. The site and view was beautiful and breathtaking. The staff were nice and helpful. And the food breakfast and dinner was soooo good! Ryan, the chief, was really nice. I had the crisp duck breast. We will definitely be back!

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
