My wife and I spent the holiday weekend in Banner Elk, NC. We stayed at the 1902 Turnpike House B&B. The proprietors, Cindy & Paul are wonderful hosts. They are very good at making you feel right at home. Paul did amazing things each morning with breakfast. Cindy has a natural talent for connecting with guests and providing colorful information...

We had a very enjoyable stay at 1902 Turnpike House. It's full of charm and lovely antiques. Our room was very comfortable and had good bathroom accommodations. Paul, the owner of this B&B was charming, and gave us an excellent breakfast. I look forward to coming back for future visits.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for an overnight getaway to celebrate my birthday. Cindy and Paul were welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. The house is a historic home and well maintained. The home and property were beautiful and peaceful. I enjoyed sitting on the front porch having morning coffee and watching the birds at the multiple birdfeeders. I get a... More

The house is spectacular and it has everything you need and want! Free cookies, drinks, candies, snacks, wood burning fireplace, awesome porch with rocking chairs perfect for sipping coffee... More

As other TA reviews have stated, Cindy is a welcoming host and Paul is a great chef. He made a vegetarian egg souffle, which was quite exquisite. I was very happy with the bed comfort and breakfast served. However, I would agree that some parts of the room don't seem to go with each other. The place is kind of... More

This is our second visit (first one Dec 2014) and just as wonderful as first! Greeted at arrival like old friends. Cindy is a great host and Paul great chef. Home is warm and inviting. My kids (14 and 18) had their first b&b experience last year and could not wait to go back.

The 1902 Turnpike House B&B has everything that a Bed and Breakfast needs: Kind and gracious hospitality, good beds (and nice rooms) and a nice and relaxed atmosphere. My family and I spent one of our most festive Christmas holidays with Paul and Cindy, who are simply charming. We also opted for an excellent Christmas dinner (only $15 a head!).... More

First off the owners are wonderful people. Cindy and Paul could not have been more warm and inviting. They have decorated the house in the fall theme, which makes it even more special. The room we stayed in the (Sugar Mountain Room) was the right amount of room we needed for 3 adults. Wonderful grounds to walk around on, swing... More
