“The Best Location in Banner Elk!”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

My husband and I stayed here last year as well, and I recommend reading my previous review as nothing has changed and it's still a wonderful place to enjoy your mountain escape. Once again, we stayed in the Peach Room, which some might find a bit too cozy, but we like the comfortable bed. The house is a historic building, built in 1912 and owner/innkeeper Beverly was happy to share the history with us over breakfast. Beverly went out of her way to accommodate my gf diet and allergies, with special breads, French toast and pancakes that were delicious. This Inn truly is in a fantastic location, accessible to all the attractions and sights nearby. Not only that, but the Inn is on a major thoroughfare that is well maintained in inclement weather. She has ample parking, accessible without dealing with treacherous roads or steep inclines.

The Banner Elk Inn was absolutely the relaxing weekend that we needed! It had been years since my husband and I had taken time away from work, kids and responsibilities... We stayed in one of the Cottages on the property , and we could not have asked for it to be better. The huge king size bed made you want to stay in it all day .... Since we were there in December 2011, a few weeks before Christmas, we had the added benefit of the Inn and grounds being decorated for the season. I just have to say that the short weekend stay there was so good, we plan to go back next year !! Hopefully, around the same time... Beverly has definitely put hospitality first and the atmosphere and decor of the Inn reflect a wonderful historical home. And the food ? Well.. it's a good thing we were there for a short time !!! Would definitely recommend the Banner Elk Inn to everyone !

My husband and I have stayed at The Banner Elk Inn many times and it always feel like "home". The "Bark" cabin is our favorite, always clean, warm,cozy and is fully equipped. Beverly Lait (owner) is always very thoughtful and accommodating and provides the most original and tasty breakfast one could ask for. I highly recommend The Banner Elk Inn if you are looking for a wonderful experience..it is centrally located to everything and the view is awesome. Clara Deily

Over the years we have spend many weeks at Banner Elk Inn B&B, each visit an exceptional experience. Filled with fine rooms, great breakfasts and wonderful personal contact with the Inn Keeper, Beverly and guests. We highly recommend that you put Banner Elk Inn B&B on your travel agenda as a must visit. There are many adventures to be found in Banner Elk. We enjoy the leaves turning and the Woolly Worm Festival and long walks on the Green Way Trail.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the Main House and Cabins which we highly recommend.

Stayed at the inn in Light Brown Room in House- August 17-22, 2011. First time in Banner Elk. The room and attached bathroom were perfect for me. Plenty of space, clean and well-lit. Bed was comfortable. Got a great deal for the room and loved the great breakfast meals provided with the room price. Beverly, the innkeeper, was great. She made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. I especially liked finding cookies and other fresh baked goods under glass in the food nook off the front door. The porch and garden area are a great place to relax. I had a pleasant experience staying here. I will definitely stay here again.

My family of 3 (adults) booked the 2-room suite in the main house for a weekend and enjoyed it very much. The 2 bedrooms shared a bath; the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was roomy. We had only to walk downstairs for the innkeeper's wonderful breakfasts. The gardens on the property gave us room to move around outside and find a quiet bench for reading. It's a short walk to the shops and cafes of Banner Elk, and a short drive to several local attractions (Banner Elk Winery, Valle Cruces, Grandfather Mountain). There is a resident cat in the main house, but one of the separate cottages on the property allows travelers to stay with their dogs. There is a park across the street with a playground for children (careful crossing the road), not actually visible from the inn due to trees, so if you don't have kids, you won't see or hear kids.

We have visited Banner Elk on several occasions and have stayed at the Banner Elk Inn on 6-7 different occasions. Our stays, either in the cottages or the Bark House, have been outstanding each time. Beverly continues to add small services and items to meet the needs of the those who stay at the Banner Elk Inn.

I will close by telling you that the breakfast meals prepared by Beverly are outstanding. She is an excellent cook and seeks input from her guest on the type of meals they would enjoy having each morning. I highly recommend the Banner Elk Inn as your destination if you are planning a trip to Banner Elk.
