Everything about this place is excellent! Beautiful villa and property, delicious breakfast, snacks, and wine, and truly wonderful people to make my stay better than I ever could have asked for. I was staying in the area for a month and tried out other places prior to Banner Elk Winery & Villa--nothing else compares to this place. Already planning my... More

We went there for an anniversary. The room we stayed in was the Pinot Grigio. Clean, open, airy. The only tiny thing I'd complain about is the size and placement of the tv and lack of a closet. Breakfast was great as well as the wine tastings. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The lodge and rooms are beautiful. The decor is very warm and cozy, but not stuffy. We also looked at some of the other suites and they were all beautifully decorated. The bed was comfortable and the bath is beautiful. The staff was more than friendly and was available and happy to answer any questions. They are very laid back... More

My wife and I decided to take a last minute trip to the mountains for wine and contacted Teri and Banner Elk Winery & Villa. She was very helpful and having a room available we booked the night with her. That was the best decision we made. The staff was very knowledgeable about the wines, region and other places to...

A little on the pricey side, but well worth it. The bed was fabulous, breakfast was delicious and the staff/owner was very accommodating. Free wine tasting with the stay and the winery is on the same property as the villa so you can walk over and enjoy a glass of wine. There was live music the Saturday afternoon we were... More

Banner Elk Winery and Villa was the perfect getaway for us. It is nice, and laid-back, and you are free to do your own thing. The staff doing the wine tasting were very helpful and accomodating, and fun to talk to. The breakfasts were absolutely top notch! The scenery was breathtaking!
