From our family and friends' rave reviews of the Villa and our dream wedding, to our first-hand experience . . . Banner Elk Winery & Villa will forever be near and dear to our hearts. We want to say thank you to all the staff for their expertise and help; we truly felt they shared our joy on our special day. Words cannot express our gratitude to Terri, the entire staff, and owners for a truly blessed and amazing weekend. We will be back and will highly recommend to anyone who asks!

Far beyond any expectation! even in the off-season, we were beyond impressed! From Terri's amazing hospitality at the Villa to the excellent wines served by the friendly staff at the Winery, this week has been a week to remember! The mountainous view and the luxury of the Villa didn't leave any room for the cold weather to bother! I would recommend a visit to the Banner Elk Winery & Villa to anyone! Definitely a stay that everyone should experience! Very private, and if there's an excuse to get away from the chaos of life, banner elk winery/villa is the perfect place to go! Downtown Banner Elk has just the right amount of variety also. Sushi, Italian, late - night cocktails, live music, and more are hidden inside the gem that is downtown banner elk!!

Beautiful "home" with an amazing staff. All were so friendly and welcoming. Lee cooked us two excellent breakfasts. Suzanne and Brandi provided us with an informative and comfortable wine tasting experience. The blueberry wine is a must try!
And Terry is a wonderful host!
We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Everything about this place is excellent! Beautiful villa and property, delicious breakfast, snacks, and wine, and truly wonderful people to make my stay better than I ever could have asked for. I was staying in the area for a month and tried out other places prior to Banner Elk Winery & Villa--nothing else compares to this place. Already planning my return visit!

Room Tip: I enjoyed both the Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio rooms. I do prefer the Chardonnay as it is more spac...

We celebrated our anniversary here recently; loved the property, its beautiful! our weather was not ideal (cloudy/rainy) however, we did get snow and it was so pretty. Our room (Cabernet) was large, beautifully furnished/decorated and the bed is super comfy. Our bathroom was also quite large and the jacuzzi tub was nice! The Chef, Lee, went out of his way for us and helped make our weekend special. He served up a wonderful breakfast each morning. We also enjoyed our wine tasting and honestly like them all. The blueberry was our favorite. We hope to return during the summer or fall for another visit! & we highly recommend this wonderful place!

Room Tip: The Cabernet Suite is beautiful and spacious~the fireplace is great for colder months...

We went there for an anniversary. The room we stayed in was the Pinot Grigio. Clean, open, airy. The only tiny thing I'd complain about is the size and placement of the tv and lack of a closet. Breakfast was great as well as the wine tastings. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The lodge and rooms are beautiful. The decor is very warm and cozy, but not stuffy. We also looked at some of the other suites and they were all beautifully decorated. The bed was comfortable and the bath is beautiful.

The staff was more than friendly and was available and happy to answer any questions. They are very laid back and make you feel very welcome. The breakfast was delicious and the presentation was good.

The winery is just a neat place to hang out as well as drink wine. After our tasting, we just stayed there and socialized with other guests as well as people that were just there visiting the winery. Neat fire pit in the front.

It was a wonderful experience and I will be back!
