The Inn at Elk River is very inviting, warm and clean. The hospitality was wonderful and the food was just as good! Darlene went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed and more. The view is amazing and it's so peaceful. If you are looking for a place to rest or a place near to... More

We stayed overnight at The Inn at Elk River when we came for our son's college orientation. From the moment we walked into the Inn we felt at home. Darlene, the inn keeper was very nice and hospitable. She made sure we felt at home. Her baking and cooking was amazing! She had a huge collection of movies we could... More

Great time at the Inn at Elk River. It proved to be a "sweet" spot for viewing fireworks from the back upstairs balcony!! Darlene's French toast really is the best I think I have ever had. So yummy. This was a very refreshing place to stay after a day at Grandfather Mountain! (I notice that someone else also had a... More

Wonderful and relaxing overnight at the Inn. Darlene couldn't have made us feel more at home. Room was larger than many B&Bs, was clean and very comfortable. The balcony was a bonus. What a treat to just relax and enjoy the views. Banner Elk is a short drive to Valle Crucis, Boone and Blowing Rock. Will definitely stay again.

We were so pleased with our stay at the Inn at Elk River. The Inn itself was beautiful and boasted an absolutely lovely view off the balcony outside our room. The Inn Keeper was friendly and accommodating, even cooking my breakfast separately so that I could have a gluten free breakfast. The inn is conveniently located to town, but feels... More

For my wife and me, this was our first experience with a B&B. Wow, what a treat it was to find this beautifully decorated and secluded home away from home. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Each room has its own bathroom and TV. This B&B is located on the side of a mountain with a beautiful view, but... More

At this price point this was the best BnB we have stayed in. Service was great even though the weather was less than ideal. It is more of a simple place without feeling austere. I felt at home. It was not so packed with antiques that I was afraid to touch anything.

I booked this B&B on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews and the location shown on Google maps for a spontaneous NYE away with the wife. It took some time to find it. It is NOT located where Google maps shows it, apparently within walking distance of downtown Banner Elk. It is about a mile further south, down a... More
