I was so grateful that Frank and Karen could accommodate me for a single night this past weekend. I had a quiet, charming room on the first floor and was welcomed with a personalized letter containing details of my stay. My room was nicely appointed and comfortable, and my hosts were gracious and kind. Breakfast was delicious and hearty. Thank... More

We originally made a reservation for our anniversary weekend at a hotel in Blowing Rock. Then my husband said, "We REALLY should stay in a Bed and Breakfast in the mountains". He was so right! He made arrangements with hosts Frank and Karen to stay in the Willow Room at the Azalea Inn. The place was full of charm with... More

Centrally located and quite! We rented the Elk Suite. The suite is located behind the main house in a cute multi-unit cottage. The interior looks more like a cabin and is just beautiful! This is the cleanest suite that I have ever rented. The unit has a wall fireplace, comfortable king-sized bed, good sized wall mount flat screen, good sized... More

My wife and stayed at the Azalea a couple of times this summer and enjoyed it immensely. The place is very well maintained, well priced and the owners are friendly, accommodating and make a great breakfast! We'll be staying there again on our bike trips and hiking adventures.

Wonderful place to stay with a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Quaint decorum with variety of decorations in bedrooms, bathrooms, and common areas made for a comfortable stay. We loved the location which, according to GoogleMaps, was only 174 feet from the Bayou, a nice Cajun Smokehouse and bar. After a great night's sleep, we enjoyed a great breakfast that... More

Loved staying here! We had the best experience! The Inn is clean and homey! The gardens are beautiful. Breakfast is delicious and very filling. Frank and Karen the proprietors go above and beyond in making your stay comfortable and enjoyable! Hope to stay there again! It is also walking distance to restaurants and close to the slopes.

Indeed the best place to stay in Baguio! They got the best accommodation in the city! Plus the fact that all staff/personnel acts like professional, polite & well-groomed. Rates are quite pricey but you get the best out of your hard-earned bucks! I strongly recommend this 4-star hotel!

Great downtown location, walk to everything. Inn keepers are very nice and accommodating and the room was very clean and quiet. Breakfast was great, eggs benedict casserole with grits and fresh fruit and a muffin. Will stay there again the next time we visit Banner Elk.

I am an avid Tripadvisor reader and always consider all the reviews, However in this case please do not waste time reading or considering the "Terrible Reviews" for this beautiful property. Those reviews are years old and not applicable to the B & B in its current condition and owners. I have stayed at many B & B's and Frank... More

We stayed at the Inn this past weekend for the Beech Mountain Metric cycling event in Banner Elk. This worked out perfectly for my husband because the starting line was just outside of our front door! The breakfasts were delicious and quite filling! Frank and Karen were great and very accommodating. I very much enjoyed the sitting area, which was... More
