We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Banner Elk Villa and also had a great experience at the winery. The location is beautiful, surrounded by rolling hills, and a quiet atmosphere. We found the staff to be very helpful in finding places to eat around town and different hikes to take and sights to see while in the area. They... More

This review is for the Banner Elk Villa. The villa, including our room, was in fact very nice. Unfortunately managment has not invested the same level of attention and detail into the customer experience. As indicated below, we had a very poor experience. That being said, I should note that the B&B honored our request for a partial refund--although surprisingly... More

Super busy Sunday afternoon but staff handled it well. They do not have "flights", just tasting for $10. You can order simple apps with the tasting; they were so busy we never got to order. Music, atmosphere was fantastic. Will definitely go back!

We stopped into the winery on a whim while on a weekend vacation in the area. There is a lovely tasting room where you can join in a tasting at the bar, the server explained the background of all the wines and they were all very good, although the pours seemed a little small :) Also, for $10 a tasting...

We decided to get away for a couple of days in the mountains. When we arrived at Banner Elk Winery and Villa, we were pleased to find that Terri had upgraded us to the Cabernet Suite. It is a huge room overlooking the lake and tasting room with a nice mountain view. Breakfast was really nice. The tasting room staff... More

We went here for my birthday, but didn't spend the night at the villa. We went for the wine tasting experience. It was different than I expected, mainly because we had to stand at a bar and taste the wines. I enjoyed the experience and the barmaid went over each wine and what it was like and the taste of...

We stayed here for my birthday awhile back and ever since we left I have been trying to get back here! Beautiful accomodations and the staff were lovely! The breakfast is amazing every day! Each room has a jacuzzi and the beds are super comfortable!

We had the smaller room located downstairs, closer to the outdoors patio & hot-tub. The room had a musty smell that gave us a headache. It also had a perfumed odor as if to mask the musty smell. Room was large. The king sized bed was too soft for our taste. Housekeeping was poor. I found used soap in the... More

I should begin by saying that we have only stayed at a B&B one other time. That B&B set a very high standard for us to compare the Banner Elk Villa against. I honestly have not gotten over the fact that you are not greeted at the Villa upon arrival other than by a flyer with your name on it... More

We stayed for 4 days in the Cabernet Fireplace Suite and it was perfect. The room is huge with beautiful views overlooking the pond. So quiet and gorgeous just sitting down there by the water. The winery is also fun to be ale to walk down there. And Boone and Blowing Rock are only 20 mins or so away. Elk... More
