My family,including 2 small grandsons and 2 dogs, and friend stayed in The Bark House cottage of the Banner Elk Inn, what a fabulous place..has a separate apt.with the main house...both have 2 bedr.and 2 baths, along with a new outside grill & picnic tables. We were there for 2 weeks, returning multiple times to this establishment. The Innkeeper is warm and friendly and it is one of the few places that accept pets. The grounds with a waterfall make for a lazy afternoon on the front porch. The weather was exceptional!
