“Loved it”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

We stayed 3 nights over Thanksgiving. The owner was very friendly and gave us tips for where to eat and hike. You can't beat the location. We stayed in an adorably decorated (for Christmas) 2 BR suite with a large kitchen. The suite was immaculate. There are coin washers and dryers on site. The bathroom in our suite was very small, so after reading some of the other reviews, we might ask for one with a larger bath when we return. The price was very reasonable. There are tons of Christmas tree farms around the area so I would like to go back next year to choose a Christmas tree. I liked that the inn is more like a lodge- rustic wood floors, porches, multi-room suites, etc- than a hotel. I would give it five stars if the bedrooms had been a little bigger- we had to put our suitcases out in the living room, and if our upstairs neighbors had been a little quieter. There isn't really anything that can be done about that except to request an upstairs room next time!

We stayed one night in Banner Elk . The area is great for hiking in December. The Main Street Inn is convenient and clean and comfortable. The nice size kitchen accommodated our party of three and our appetites after a hike near by. The bath was oversized with a large spa tub .The inn keeper was very nice and offered some advise on hiking and places to eat should we want to eat out. We would definitely go back to Little main street inn.

We were visiting Lees McRae College and stayed here for the night. It was such a great place! The Suite was very clean and wonderfully decorated for winter! We enjoyed having the space this suite offered. Self serve breakfast was available in the room with "extras" in the hallway. We definitely recommend this great place in Banner Elk!

This is a home away from home! It is like living in an apartment. In the hall you can help yourself to coffee, tea, pastries, popcorn, etc. I would not stay anywhere else! It is close to Grandfather Mountain and many other attractions. It is also close to wonderful restaurants. The bathroom is very large with a shower and jacuzzi tub. You can also enjoy sitting in a rocking chair on the large frontporch. t cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: You would be happy with any room.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. The suite is spacious. The jacuzzi tub is very nice and the bathroom is huge. The innkeepers pretty much leave you alone. We didn't meet them. Since I use tripadvisor I'm going to post some things that others might find helpful. This inn is beside the local police station. Our room had an uncomfortable futon, rather than a couch. That may be important to some. The bed is average. Our room was "quaint". By that I mean, it has a country decor. It is an older home due. Don't expect perfection. The back deck could definately use some new stain. It was very clean except for a few cobwebs, but I'm tall and most people would probably never see them. Also, the biggest issue I had was there is only a window a/c unit It did not keep our suite cool at all. I slept with only a sheet both nights. It wasn't that hot to begin with, so keep that in mind. The wireless service was in and out, but that's not the innkeepers fault. Overall, I think it was a good value for the $$.

We loved our stay. Our 1 bedroom suite was so much better than a hotel. Very affordable, great location to visit Grandfather Mountain, close to restuarants, and spacious. Easy in and out. Great front porch. Highly recommend!

This inn is right down the street from downtown Banner Elk, in a very quiet area. The rooms are off a main hallway, with extra towels, shampoo and soap in a cupboard in the hallway for the taking. First of all, this inn is so quiet and peaceful. There are danishes and cereal available in the hallway, and cereals in the room. A quart of milk was in the refrigerator when we arrived. Now for number 1 requirement . . . the room was spotless. This is a condo like room in that the owners don't have anyone enter the room while quests are staying there. It is very cozy, relaxing and pretty. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with two teenagers and we had plenty of room. I hope to return next year!
