I stay in the cottages twice a month and love being at this fabulous bed and breakfast so much that I've been a bimonthly regular for a year. The cottages are spacious. In addition to a superbly comfortable bed there is a sitting area, a breakfast area and a full kitchen as well as a jacuzzi tub. Outside there is... More

We just returned from a brief but restful visit to the Banner Elk Inn. The Innkeeper, Beverly, made us feel welcome and "at home" from the moment we walked in the door. This historic home is well cared for; the guest rooms are inviting with unique furnishings that tell a story of love and wonderful life-experience. You will be in... More

What a great B&B! And fantastic service! Beautiful grounds. There's a man-made water feature on the property & it offers such a soothing sound to all of the other wonderful sounds found in nature! The BarkHouse is perfect. Obviously pet friendly but does not at smell like a dog! The house is clean, comfortable and cozy!

My wife and I spent Memorial Day week here. The location is within walking distance to anything in Banner Elk and easy driving distance to anything in Boone, Blowing Rock, Valle Cruis, Linville and the surrounding area. The Inn Keeper, Beverly is a very thoughtful owner/hostess. She just keeps on making the place more beautiful and customer friendly. In addition... More

Beverly is a great hostess and enjoys her guests! Beautiful facility with excellent location. The grounds are so pretty and relaxing. Tranquility is paramount if that is what you are interested in while you are there..

We have been coming to the Banner Elk Inn for over 20 years, generally twice a year and would not change. The cottage cheese pancakes are one of my favorites for breakfast. Always have snacks in coffee room that are just too tempting for me to pass up. Looking forward to many more visits.

We thoroughly enjoyed waking up with the crisp fall air at our door. We also greatly enjoyed the welcoming rooms with fire places to keep us cozy at night. Food was great and the staff members were amazing to meet!

Stayed a week at The Banner Elk Inn and had a great time. We stayed in the bark house cabin which is is warm and comfortable. The meals at The Banner Elk Inn are fantastic - especially the famous pancakes.
