“Avoid at all costs”
Reviewed 13 July 2006

AVOID. The fire escape is inoperable and behind two locked doors. We rented what was advertised as a 4 person suite -- it had two beds. We stayed two nights. The beds were not made up, towels were not replaced, breakfast consisted of an apple, the owner pretended not to be the owner, and when we asked for better service, we were told to leave in front of the other guests. There are many nice places to stay in the Mountains, this is the worst we've stayed in in our 10 years of coming here.

Stayed July 2006

This review was posted in 2006. It is now 2012. These lies have stayed in print 6 years. The person who wrote the review was taken out of an assisted care living facility to come to a special event, the Scottish Highland Games, and stay at her first choice of accommodations, The Banner Elk Inn. In just two days, there were 6 incidences caused by this person, all of which were unpleasant. We did our very best to accommodate her and give her the best service possible but she was such an angry person, we could not help her. I had talked with her for 4 entire months about this reservation so it would have been impossible for someone to think that I was pretending not to be the owner. Other guests, realizing something was wrong, began to complain. The only solution was for me to find accommodations for her elsewhere, and refund her money, which I was able to do. Please remove this review; it is entirely inappropriate.

We loved our get-away to the Banner Elk Inn Bed and Breakfast. It was quaint and charming with a rustic feel. It was the perfect place to ring in the New Year with a nice living area and fire place. There are also cottages on site which are newly built and well decorated. Our rooms were clean and cozy with great down-filled bedding and decor that surpasses typical hotel style furnishings. The cottage cheese pancakes were delicious. Beverly, the owner, allows guests to decide what they would like for breakfast and the time at which the meal would be served. The location is convenient to Sugar Mountain and Grandfather Mountain.

Dine at the Zudda's (?) Tappas Restaurant which serves only the most delicious appetizers, especially the Lobster Bisque soup. Linville Falls was also gorgeous.
