“Wonderful Experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Over the years we have spend many weeks at Banner Elk Inn B&B, each visit an exceptional experience. Filled with fine rooms, great breakfasts and wonderful personal contact with the Inn Keeper, Beverly and guests. We highly recommend that you put Banner Elk Inn B&B on your travel agenda as a must visit. There are many adventures to be found in Banner Elk. We enjoy the leaves turning and the Woolly Worm Festival and long walks on the Green Way Trail.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the Main House and Cabins which we highly recommend.

Stayed at the inn in Light Brown Room in House- August 17-22, 2011. First time in Banner Elk. The room and attached bathroom were perfect for me. Plenty of space, clean and well-lit. Bed was comfortable. Got a great deal for the room and loved the great breakfast meals provided with the room price. Beverly, the innkeeper, was great. She made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. I especially liked finding cookies and other fresh baked goods under glass in the food nook off the front door. The porch and garden area are a great place to relax. I had a pleasant experience staying here. I will definitely stay here again.

My family of 3 (adults) booked the 2-room suite in the main house for a weekend and enjoyed it very much. The 2 bedrooms shared a bath; the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was roomy. We had only to walk downstairs for the innkeeper's wonderful breakfasts. The gardens on the property gave us room to move around outside and find a quiet bench for reading. It's a short walk to the shops and cafes of Banner Elk, and a short drive to several local attractions (Banner Elk Winery, Valle Cruces, Grandfather Mountain). There is a resident cat in the main house, but one of the separate cottages on the property allows travelers to stay with their dogs. There is a park across the street with a playground for children (careful crossing the road), not actually visible from the inn due to trees, so if you don't have kids, you won't see or hear kids.

We have visited Banner Elk on several occasions and have stayed at the Banner Elk Inn on 6-7 different occasions. Our stays, either in the cottages or the Bark House, have been outstanding each time. Beverly continues to add small services and items to meet the needs of the those who stay at the Banner Elk Inn.

I will close by telling you that the breakfast meals prepared by Beverly are outstanding. She is an excellent cook and seeks input from her guest on the type of meals they would enjoy having each morning. I highly recommend the Banner Elk Inn as your destination if you are planning a trip to Banner Elk.

I have stayed at this Inn on two separate occassions. The first time I stayed Briarwood Cottage B which was an oversized suite with cozy bath and luxioius bath. The second time I stayed in the main house. Room was very clean , very comfortable bed and private bath at a great price. Inn Keeper was very warm and friendly. She is a great breakfast chef and it was so nice to have that included. She gave great restaurant recommendations and her Inn is convenient to downtown Banner Elk. Highly recommend!!!

We have been staying at the Banner Elk B&B for the past few years, and Beverly offers friendly, dependable service that we look forward to each time we visit. We stay in the French Provincial cottage, and we like to have our breakfast out there after sleeping in. We also love the tub for long soaks after hiking on the Parkway. The accommodations are lovely and comfortable, the food is delicious, and the location is really convenient. It's a great choice for people who enjoy the mountains. We plan to take our dog next year!

Beverly Tait has done it again. My wife and I have been staying at th Banner Elk Inn Bed and Breakfast for vacations over the past several years. We have always been pleased with the accomodations, atmosphere and meals and the price is right. This time Beverly had added a new recipe she discovered somewhere and it was a huge hit. We travel from Charlotte and have stayed at many places over the years. We have stayed in Blowing Rock and Banner Elk. Once we found Beverly's place, we knew we had found our "home away from home" and didn't have to look any further. She and her business are top knotch.
