My wife and I have had our happiest holidays at Banner Elk. We have stayed in 5 star hotels that don't come near this B&B. We return year after year, now with our grandchildren. Parks, forested mountain, streams short walk. Down town and restaurants also a short walk.

Our stay at the Banner elk inn was amazing! Ms. Beverly's hospitality is unmatched. She is one of the most kind and accommodating individuals my wife and I have ever met. She turned what began as a stressful time, due to the loss of our car keys, into a relaxing and blessed stay, not to mention she is a fantastic...

We stay in the Briarwood Cottages. It was a last minute vacation and Beverly made the place wonderful to stay in at such a short notice. The rooms are fantastic, the bath is so cozy, the view is so sweet, the yard is incredible, and the breakfast was to die for. All in all a wonderful stay and a great...

I have lost count of how many times I have now stayed here! And I know there will be many more stays in the future! The location is perfect- walk or ride to your dinner destination, take a walk around the park in an incredible setting or sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the view- none will disappoint....

My husband and I have stayed with Beverly on a number of occasions during the holiday season, and the hospitality and comfort keep bringing us back. (See my earlier reviews) Every year we've stayed in the main house where the rooms are cozy and comfortable, and we can enjoy the Christmas tree, hot chocolate and big screen by the fire....

My husband and I just spent a month in the Bark House at the Banner Elk Inn B&B. The cabin is absolutely beautiful with smooth pine interiors, high ceilings, comfortable furniture, well-equipped kitchen, and bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs. It has everything you need for a short or long stay. All the "good stuff" of Banner Elk was within walking distance...

We really enjoyed our stay here, easy to get to in this small Blue Ridge mt. town. The inn is a little too close to the main highway, but it wasn't a problem. Met great couples from all over the country staying here, some have returned multiple times because they enjoy it so much. Beverly served a great breakfast each...

Beverly is such a warm and wonderful host! Her breakfasts are the best, especially the cottage cheese and blueberry pancakes. The Bark house is unforgettable. Just walk in and the scent of the pine interior will make you never want to leave. We keep going back because it's like our second home!

We wanted a quiet place to get away, privacy and to wake up to a delicious breakfast - we got all three at Banner Elk Inn! We stayed in the French Provincial Cottage. It was quiet, accommodating, clean and comfortable. Flowers in our room was a very nice touch. It was a great place to return to after a long...
