I have lost count of how many times I have now stayed here! And I know there will be many more stays in the future! The location is perfect- walk or ride to your dinner destination, take a walk around the park in an incredible setting or sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the view- none will disappoint.... More

My husband and I have stayed with Beverly on a number of occasions during the holiday season, and the hospitality and comfort keep bringing us back. (See my earlier reviews) Every year we've stayed in the main house where the rooms are cozy and comfortable, and we can enjoy the Christmas tree, hot chocolate and big screen by the fire.... More

My husband and I just spent a month in the Bark House at the Banner Elk Inn B&B. The cabin is absolutely beautiful with smooth pine interiors, high ceilings, comfortable furniture, well-equipped kitchen, and bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs. It has everything you need for a short or long stay. All the "good stuff" of Banner Elk was within walking distance... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, easy to get to in this small Blue Ridge mt. town. The inn is a little too close to the main highway, but it wasn't a problem. Met great couples from all over the country staying here, some have returned multiple times because they enjoy it so much. Beverly served a great breakfast each... More

Beverly is such a warm and wonderful host! Her breakfasts are the best, especially the cottage cheese and blueberry pancakes. The Bark house is unforgettable. Just walk in and the scent of the pine interior will make you never want to leave. We keep going back because it's like our second home!

We wanted a quiet place to get away, privacy and to wake up to a delicious breakfast - we got all three at Banner Elk Inn! We stayed in the French Provincial Cottage. It was quiet, accommodating, clean and comfortable. Flowers in our room was a very nice touch. It was a great place to return to after a long... More

I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Comfortable beds, delicious food, warm and welcoming atmosphere, sparkling clean, soft quality linens and towels, lovely place -- really, you can't go wrong here. It's all-around excellent.

I had the joy of staying here this week. The innkeeper was very accommodating considering it was the off season and she may have actually been closed. I had a wonderful room within it with a very comfy bed and very clean accommodations. I can without a doubt recommend this place for a stay . I will definitely be back.

The inn was amazing. My now husband and I live 15 min away in Matney. I reserved the French Provincial cottage. My bridesmaids and I got ready in the morning for our sunrise service. The owner was so thoughtful and left a plate full of fruit and treats for the morning. My husband and I had our reception that night... More

On our stay we had a number of folks with dietary issues. Beverly accommodated everyone so well. A nice bunch of folks to talk with each morning.... most of us usually talked for hours together afterward. The breakfasts were very well done, and a bit unique so that was even more fun to eat something different. A nice quiet place... More
