My wife and I stayed at the Archer's Mountain Inn in Banner Elk, NC for our 5 year anniversary! It was one of the most enjoyable times of our lives! The view from our room was breath taking and the in-room fireplace helped set the atmosphere. The staff was friendly and helpful. When talking with them I mentioned our day's plan and without me asking, they called down to the Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce to make sure our day's activities were still scheduled. It was a great place to make our "base of operations" venturing out to the surrounding attractions (Grandfather Mountain, Hiking, Blue Ridge Parkway, Free Concerts in Banner Elk, etc.). This may sound silly, but another attraction that we fell in love with was Kip, the hotel's lovable chocolate lab who was always happy to see us and ever appreciative of scratch behind the ear! My wife and I are already planning our next visit. We suggest the Archer's Inn to everyone!
