We found the Azalea Inn just driving through Banner Elk looking for a place to spend the night on a road trip. We loved it so much we spent another night. There are cozy rooms upstairs in the main house but we opted for one of the one-bedroom units out back. Full kitchen, living room, very comfortable bed, big bathroom with big whirlpool bathtub and separate shower. We could have moved in for the month. Frank and Karen are both very nice and perfect hosts. The breakfast was delicious and just enough - more than pastries and coffee but not some elaborate buffet. Located across the street from good restaurants. We are looking forward to returning.
