“Wonderful Cabin”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

We have stayed here a couple times, since they opened last year. It's close to down town Banner Elk and a wonderful place to stay.

The Creekside Cabin overlooks a small brook that feeds into Elk River. Sitting on the cabin's back deck, you have complete privacy. No other cabins, houses, or people are visible. You only see the creek and woods. It's a great place to have your morning coffee or just sit and watch the wildlife. Although we've heard stories about bear sitings, we have only seen deer.

Greg and Amy are a great couple and very helpful. They do a wonderful job managing the place

The Couples Retreat Room is a cute little getaway with just enough room for tow people looking for a little privacy, peace, and quiet. The young couple operating Banner Haven are extremely pleasant and friendly. They are knowledgable about the area and what's going on. Although the bathroom is located across the hall, it's private and just a couple steps from the bedroom door. We look forward to coming back.

Room Tip: Don't forget your bathing suit. There is a wonderful little hot tub behind the house.

Stayed for a weekend in a cabin. Cabin was clean and spacious. Big yard if the kids want to run around. From rear balcony, all you can see is woods and the nice, bubbling creek. ( awesome to hear it at night, when you're going to sleep ) Owners were absolutely accommodating to our needs!

The area is beautiful; we wanted to escape a hectic week (down the mountain) and bring our dog. For the price, Banner Haven, filled the bill. The path to the room requires a little maneuvering. The path stones are irregular and inconveniently placed. the stairway to the room is wooden, steep and not great for carrying luggage if you're a little older. Greg was kind enough to help us. Nice owners and had no real problems BUT... the couple's retreat room has a low ceiling(gambrell roof line) and for two tall people we were leary of moving around too quickly! The furniture also cramps the room. If we returned here we would opt for the other room or the cabin. The bathroom is odd as it slopes and again, my tall man could easily knock himself out at the comode. they could use a few more hooks as the bathroom is across the hall and there's no place to hang both a robe and a towel. We hate to give a low review because Amy & Greg are very cordial. Tall people beware.

Greg G, Owner at Banner Haven B&B and Cabin Rentals, responded to this review, 20 October 2014
We are happy to let you know, we have made several changes at Banner Haven.

The uneven stone walkway has been replaced with a smooth wooden walkway from the driveway to the door, along with handicap parking, directly in front of the house. There are no more steps to the main house. The wooden walkway slowly rises and provides a nice ramp, from parking to the door.

The low ceilings are gone. After a complete renovation, the room ceilings are now standard heights and you will not bump your head, next time you come visit. We have also added hooks in all the rooms and bathrooms.

Thank you very much for your review. It has helped us make the property better.

Excellent! Beautiful area, the mountains, shops, all of it!!
The cabin is great, we had no problem settling in and being very cozy!
Relaxing on the back porch, sitting around a roaring fire, hiking in the woods or mining for gems!
Can't wait to go back for some excellent trout fishing!!

Room Tip: Our family of five was very comfortable in the cabin.

We found the Azalea Inn Bed & Breakfast first and loved it. The sunroom downstairs was a nice place to visit with the owners and other guests. We recently stayed at Banner Haven in the cabin. It was so nice and cozy, and the little fireplace made it even cozier! We even had some visitors pass by in the yard one morning... some wild turkeys strolled through the yard! Can't wait to visit both places again!
