We like the sound of the creek, so we stayed at the cabin. Didn't realize that it's not really a bed and breakfast. Not very secure, although we weren't really concerned about it. We woke up one morning and found the front door opened sometime during the night. No soap in the shower. No explanation of how to make the... More

Loved the haven!! We stayed in the cabin, couldn't have been more perfect! The sounds of the river at night to put you to sleep and the welcoming barks of baby and kitty in the morning to gently wake you up, What more could we ask for. We will stay there as often as we can!!

We were greeted by Jade who was pleasant and helpful. Our "Couples" room was cozy, comfortable and inexpensive. We were concerned about the yipping dog caged in the living room, but he quieted down at night. Since we were the only guests the house was quiet and we slept well. We were given 3 breakfast choices, all sounded great. Breakfast... More

I will start with our experience from the beginning. Upon entering the residence we were barely greeted by who we assume to be was the caretaker of the house since we never met nor saw the innkeepers. The caretaker never gave us her name and all she asked was "have you stayed at a B&B before?" When we stated yes... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't have the experience you expected. Unfortunately, I had kidney stone surgery a few days before you arrived and may have still been at the hospital, while you were at the property. Our daughter did her best to handle everything, until someone arrived to help. This was obviously beyond my control and... More

Banner Elk is an expensive town to visit and Banner Haven has some of the best prices around, but there is a reason. Our room was separated from the bathroom by a common hallway. The bath itself was a Do-It-Yourselfer's nightmare. It was decorated in early plumbing store. The faucet in the sink (wooden bowl) was reversed and the fixture... More

We are sorry you had a bad experience with the bathroom. Our website does state the bathroom is across the hallway, and this is very common with older bed and breakfasts. As our property was constructed in 1910, the bathroom is decorated with vintage pieces, like the claw foot slipper tub. The exposed copper pipe is very period appropriate and... More

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful time in the High Country! To start, the Gardners were very welcoming. I was very impressed with their knowledge of the area, things to do, the history, and how to get anywhere we wanted to go. I thought breakfast was delicious! You can tell they have put a lot of...

The cabin was well maintained and warm. Because of renovations, they just gave coupons for breakfast at a restaurant. But the folks were really nice and seemed glad to have us. Too cold to enjoy the deck, but we'll try that another time.

My Hubby & I recently took off for a quick getaway trip to the mountains & as a matter of luck accidentally found this little Haven in the heart of Banner Elk. Honestly, we would have loved to stay in the cabin, but since it was already occupied we definitely plan to return and reserve it in advance next time.... More

We stayed at the Creekside Cabin last week and had a fanastic time. It was clean, quiet, peaceful, charming, and the owners were so lovely. There was a little back porch with chairs that we enjoyed playing cards on and listening to the creek below. Huge yard for my son to run around with the fall leaves falling around him.... More
