I Love the Banner Elk Inn & BB/Cottages!!

5 on December 28, 2011

My husband and I have been coming to this wonderful bed & breakfast for years. We've tried pretty much every room/cottage/cabin and they are all great! There is no other place I want to stay when I am in the area. Mrs. Beverly is an excellent innkeeper and the breakfast is always yummy! It's a great place to relax and meet new friends.

A Great Place fo R&R

My husband and needed to get away to relax and this was definitely the place to go. Beverly was very accomodating and attentive. She truly knows how to run an inn. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast was absolutely tremendous. It was very relaxing to sit on the porch overlooking the garden and fountains. We will be returning to this lovely inn.

My husband and I have been to Banner Elk Inn for several years now. The inn is clean, beautiful landscape, and we always feel at 'home'. The innkeeper, Beverly, is very attentive and accommodating. We love it there! Highly recommend!

Like coming home

My husband and I spent a weekend here in September. We stayed in the very comfortable main house. Highlights were the nice bed linens, hot shower, snack room and of course, the wonderful breakfast. The Inn is also very convenient to shops and restaurants in the town of Banner Elk.

A place you don't want to miss.

You keep coming back over and over and it is always a real treat. This B&B is clean, charming, full of beauty everywhere you look. Beverly the Innkeeper is always making you feel welcome and special. Her breakfasts are memorable!

Stayed in main house, absolutely lovely rooms. Especially liked the idea of helping yourself at any time to the food and drink in the little breakfast room. Would love to return.

A Beautiful Get-Away

5 on April 11, 2007

My husband surprised me with a anniversary get-away to the Banner Elk B & B. We had never stayed in one before and it was a wonderful experience. Everything was so quaint, the breakfast was beautiful, the home was cozy and beautiful itself and to top it all off...We had several inches of snow! In April! Just a magical get away. Thank you for opening your home to us.
