“Elegant, charming and cozy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

The Banner Elk Inn has everything you could possibly wish for to have the perfect get-away. Nestled in the mountains of Banner Elk, the grounds are a lovely blend of beautiful flowers and natural greenery. The Innkeeper has developed a very pleasing and peaceful setting to surround the Inn itself.
And once inside, you are surrounded with elegant charm as well as everything you need to make your stay a very pleasant, enjoyable experience. Great care is taken to provide for your comfort and pleasure in every detail from your room to you meals. And best of all the Inn Keeper, Beverly Lait, is such a pleasure to meet and get to know. She strives to make sure her guests are happy with their stay with her, and will be anxious to return again.

I consider The Banner Elk Inn a wonderful place to stay for that very special get-away, or for just a relaxing vacation with family and friends.

Room Tip: The cottages are wonderful for those who desire more privacy. However as a single adult, I really e...

We have stayed at The Banner Elk many times since it first opened, and have consistently been delighted with the beautiful setting of the Inn, it's Cabin and Cottages. It's the ideal place for rest and relaxation. The rooms and bathrooms are always immaculately clean, and the bedding feels so comfortable as if sleeping on a cloud. The Innkeeper, Beverly, is most welcoming, without being intrusive. She also provides a delightful breakfast including homemade pancakes, which are a feast for your senses.
Whenever we travel through the Carolina's we include a stay at the Banner Elk Inn because it provides the home-away-from home atmosphere, and then some.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite with our kids and had plenty of room. The house is charming and amazingly quiet (all rooms were filled while we were there). Beverly is a lovely hostess and is able to walk that fine line of being very hospitable and yet not at all intrusive. The breakfast was very nice; the kids loved the food. She was accommodating to our schedules for breakfast times and also made a special dish for me when she learned I am a vegetarian. In addition to a nice breakfast, there were always baked goods available including the most delicious and addictive almond biscotti. We will certainly be staying here again on our next trip!

We have stayed in quite a few B & B's and not only accommodations but service here second to none! We've visited 3 times; once in the Bark House Cabin and twice in the cottages. Never have we seen such a place so nice with every little detail so beautifully placed, knowing the guest was a priority! Beverly is a TOP NOTCH hostess and wonderful cook! Looking forward to returning soon to Banner Elk and staying with Beverly and maybe getting some of her famous pancakes and all the amenities that come along with staying at Banner Elk B&B!!! Highly recommend! Brent and Pamela Shields

Room Tip: Any room at Beverly's is a great room.

My husband and I stayed at Beverly's charming cottage on our honeymoon. She was a very gracious hostess and our cottage had more accommodations than we could have asked for! The bed was luxurious - lots of pillows and a cozy duvet cover! - and we really enjoyed using the Jacuzzi and fireplace. We both hated to leave and will be back as soon as we can. Beverly is the greatest!

Room Tip: Highly recommend renting a private cottage for a relaxing getaway!

Honestly, I don't know where to begin. The Bark House was amazing. Our family decided to take a last minute vacation for Christmas week and to our favor Banner Elk Inn had a cancellation. We're so glad we decided to go. My children were thrilled to experience a white Christmas. The cabin was absolutely spotless. Very cozy and in my opinion better the the Four Seasons. Beverley was very helpful and accommodating as we wanted to check in early. The cabin has many amenities that we didn't even expect. Words can't explain how wonderful this vacation was. The entire community was just amazing. We cooked in our cabin most of the time but decide to go out to eat our last night and went to Stone Wall. The service was amazing. We skied 2 days on Sugar Mountain and it was a quick 10 minute drive. This cabin in is a perfect location. High recommend. Thank you Beverley!!
