Over the years, we stayed at the Inn we've always been pleased. The Inn at Elk River is IMO a true B & B, not a hyped up large hotel like the Grove Park, etc.
We enjoy the location just outside of downtown Banner Elk and proximity to Boone and Blowing Rock. There are good restaurants near by and the food at the Inn is excellent.
Rooms are warm and quaint and the over all atmosphere is relaxing and the service is attentive without being intrusive.
I highly recommend this Inn.
