Having stayed in many b&b's around the country, we have now added the 1902 Turnpike House to our list of all-time favorites. Paul gave us a brief history and tour of the home upon arrival, and Cindy had everything decorated beautifully for fall. Our room was spacious and comfortable. There were ample places to sit and relax inside and outside, and the setting was lovely in October. And then there was breakfast! Whether you plan to hike, ski, shop or explore, you will be well fortified by the substantial and delicious breakfast. And Banner Elk is a great place to do all of the above. The 1902 Turnpike House, and Cindy and Paul, the hosts, make for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Betty Banner room. It was very comfortable and quiet.

Perfect location for Skiers. Excellent breafast (cream cheese stuffed french toast was amazing), friendly and welcoming. We look forward to our next visit.

We loved our two-day stay at the 1902 Turnpike House B&B. We were attending the Grandfather Mountain Highland Game and the inn was convenient to the venue. It is a lovely home in the mountains where the weather was perfect for sitting outside on the porch in the evening admiring the lovely flowers and the variety of birds visiting the feeders. Breakfast was elegant and tasty. The hosts, Paul and Cindy, were very friendly and welcoming. We recommend it.

We have stayed in lots of B&Bs, and we think that there is none better than the 1902 Turnpike House. Cindy and Paul are gracious and accommodating hosts. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are extremely comfortable, and the breakfasts are superb. (The cookies that are always available in the dining room will remind you of the wonderful treats that your grandma used to make for you!) You won't be disappointed if you stay here. Easy access to outstanding restaurants and shops in nearby Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, and Boone. Nature lovers can hike the many nearby trails or visit Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls.

1902 Turnpike House is the only B&B we visit in Banner Elk. Paul and Cindy became friends on our first visit and have always treated us a honored guests. The rooms are quite comfortable and well appointed, the breakfast's are ample and elegant, and we highly recommend 1902 House to anyone wanting to be pampered.

This was a lovely way to spend a couple of days in the NC ski country. The inn keepers, Paul and Cindy, were most accommodating, friendly and informative about the area. The cookies - available almost anytime - were yummy, as were the two breakfasts. Paul goes all out on those! Our room was comfortable too. And the 1902 Turnpike House is convenient to both Beech and Sugar Mountain. If you like B&B's, I recommend it highly. we'll stay there again when we're in the area.
