Great getaway in the mountains

Inn was clean, accommodations very comfortable, and food good. Nice location for exploring the mountains. The Inn keeper, Darlene, was outstanding!!!! She is the best Inn Keeper we have encountered.

Great value.

Having paid as much for hotel rooms in the area we found this to be by far the better value. Homey, warm and inviting.

The room was cozy with fire already laid up, just had to start it. Inn keeper had delicious snacks. Breakfast was excellent and filling, just what we needed to start out our snowy adventure. Thanks again to the inn keeper for a wonderful experience.

Needs an update with furnishings and meals.

2.0 on July 26, 2013

First room was damp and moldy smelling. Had to ask for another room. The other room was fine without odors but the window airconditioner vents were very dirty. The decortive pillows on the bed smelled like they had not ever been cleaned. The bedspread was yellow underneath and was supposed to be white. The mattress was hard as a rock! Afternoon snack was one level box cake with icing on it. No forks provided or beverages. The morning coffee was instant with coffeemate instead of half and half with fresh brewed. The food was tasty and the host of the Inn was very nice and accommodating.

Innkeeper Response
All of us at the Inn at Elk River appreciate your feedback & review of our inn & our wonderful innkeeper, Darlene! We appreciate your feedback to help us improve & are truly sorry for your dissatifaction during your recent stay. We welcome your comments, but are confused by several of your issues, as we offer fresh brewed coffee & our mattresses in all 8 rooms were recently replaced last year. The mattresses are "top of the line" nationally recognized pillow top mattresses. While this is the first complaint we have had about our bedding since we bought the Inn in 1996, we do recognize we are really selling a "good night's sleep" at our B&B. At the same time we replaced all of the mattresses, we also purchased new bed spreads. We are constantly purchasing new sheets & towels & such to provide our guests with top quality & a good value for their money. Thank you so much for your stay & please consider a return visit to our B&B inn on your next return to Banner Elk! Thanks again!


A Wonderful Stay

4.4 on July 15, 2013

We stayed at the Inn at Elk River as a last minute get-away. We were pleasantly surprised with the coziness and comfort. The breakfast was wonderful, and our room was extremely clean. Breakfast was outstanding, and Darlene, the Inn Keeper went that "extra mile" so to speak to accomodate us.
