“Awesome”
Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

The reviews are not hyperbole. Wonderful staff. Dog friendly. Movies, games and magazines for your enjoyment. It's the kind of place you want to spend a week!! The rooms and bathroom are spacious. I would recommend putting in a celing fan in the bedroom or another window unit.

We had the pleasure of again staying at Little Main Street Inn in Banner Elk. Our room was clean, cozy, and comfortable. On our first visit we stayed in a first floor suite which was wonderful. Our stay this visit was during the start of the Highland Games and we were told up front that it was much smaller as it was the last room available and our reservation was made late. It was just fine for the two of us and still had a small kitchen area. Cereal, snacks, popcorn, games and movies are available and the front porch is a great relaxing place to rock. Given a choice of a chain hotel, or this warm and friendly locally owned B&B.....we will take the B&B hands down!! We will definitely stay again!

Pulled into Banner Elk overnight with no advanced reservations...was fortunate to find that the Little Main Street Inn had an available room, so we took it. Was not overly fancy, but had a comfortable home atmosphere about it and the owners were pleasant and helpful getting us situated. Price of the two-room suite was slightly less than one room at the local Best Western. Breakfast was limited to assorted cereal and milk, but had a kitchen for those who would want to buy food and cook for themselves.

This is the best place with atmosphere, charm and comfort! Phil, Lori and the family do an excellent job of making you feel at home! My children (and my camera) loved how our room was decorated! It was the complete western style complete with authentic boots and toy pistols. This is NOT a hotel! It smells like home, feels like home and even has a little pantry with REAL food in the hallway....not a vending machine. I sat the first night reading through the guest book and was brought to tears by some of the praises left and after 2 nights here....I myself had the heart-felt words flowing into the book. We were in the area for not so pleasant reasons which left our days crammed with obligations and trying to keep somewhat normalcy for the two younger children with us. Coming back here at the end of the day helped wash away the negative part of the day and made it vacation-like for all of us.

We stayed on the first floor in a two bedroom whatever you want to call it...but to us, it was home for the weekend complete with dishes, a full kitchen and a washer and dryer. If you're looking for bell hops and stinky hotel carpet....this ain't the place! If you want a home away from home with old world values....THIS IS IT! I have told everyone I know about Little Main Street Inn and we are planning on another visit now to enjoy the cooler summer weather in Banner Elk.

Keep up the good work Phil, Lori, Meagan and Max! Ya'll are leaps and bounds above chain hotels!

Room Tip: Got kids? Stay in the western themed room! They'll love it!

The inn-keeper met me at the door with, "Welcome Home". Such an appropriate greeting for this charming inn in Banner Elk. My husband and I made this part of our honeymoon travels and we easily see returning with our family in the future. This inn has one and two bedroom units that are really set up like apartments. The room was immaculately clean and was equipped with everything we needed. The owners had even left us a quart of milk for our breakfast cereal, which they provide. Sweet little getaway in a beautiful town.

We were so impressed with the Little Main Street Inn, in Banner Elk, NC. It was charming, comfortable and immaculate. The bedding was so comfortable that the unexpected freezing temperatures
we encountered mid April 2012 just added to our little venture. It was wonderful to come in from the cold into a lovely warm suite. The daily price for staying at this charming and accommodating Inn cannot be compared to the local motels, hotels in the surrounding areas.
Many thanks to the owners for allowing us, including our little dog Bella, to enjoy your home, when we are away from home!
Oh! and where did you stay last that a quart of milk awaited your arrival?

Room Tip: I am sure the owner will assist you in booking the best unit for your particular needs. Our little...

Score another point for Trip Advisor. My wife and I recently stayed three nights in a spacious suite at the Little Main Street Inn in Banner Elk. It was everything I expected based on Trip Advisor reviews. Actually, it was more than I expected. The suite had a fully equipped, modern kitchen that was "clean as a whistle". The living room had a comfortable sofa and chair for viewing a large screen HD TV with great satellite reception. The roomy bedroom had a comfortable bed and the huge bathroom included a two person jacuzzi. Every part of the suite was tastefully decorated and the place truly felt like home away from home.
Geographically, we were conveniently located just a short distance away from several sightseeing stops such as Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Blowing Rock, and Blue Ridge Parkway scenic viewpoints such as the Linn Cove Viaduct.
All in all, the value of the Little Main Street Inn was tops, the comfort was terrific, and we'd stay there again for sure if we were ever back in that area of North Carolina.

Room Tip: I have no idea what the other rooms were like but we had Room #4 which I would take again without he...
