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.

We have just left the Inn at Banner Elk after spending three super days in the Bark Cottage. The cottage is spacious and well equipped- Beverley the hostess has thought of everything you may need during your stay. Although quite close to the road there was no noise at night to disturb your sleep(I ama poor sleeper as a rule)...

We recently stayed in the Briarwood cottages with our two dogs. We appreciated the fact there was a large deck with a gate so we could relax outside on the with the dogs. Our room was comfortable and well laid out with comfortable furniture and it was bright and really a nice set up. Beverly was super and accommodating to...

Two weeks of loving care, delicious breakfasts, fresh, baked cookies, a lovely garden, and most comfortable cabin, with a kingsize bed, superior quality linens and thick, large bath towels, established the foundation for our lovely vacation; of course,the latter could not occur without the Innkeeper, our "hostess with the mostest," Beverly. She is a font of information about the area...

With two small exceptions, we really loved our stay at Banner Elk Inn. We chose one of the cottages, so we were fully equipped for a nice visit. Everything was comfortable and lovely. (As a shower taker, it was quite a challenge getting in and out of the wide and deep soaking tub, but it was nice, once you got...

We are always pleased and thankful to receive a good review. But a couple of statements here need clarification: 1. Our WiFi worked perfectly while this couple was here and has worked perfectly and consistently since their visit. After reading this review, I called in Skybest Communications, our internet provider, to test our internet service for inconsistency. After an extensive...

What a unique place to stay, We were in the Bark cabin, across the garden and the cottages from the main house. It was private and just like a luxurious mountain cabin. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in with silky sheets and lots of soft pillows. We went to the main house for a...
