The cottages were beyond extremely clean with no "deodorizing scent". The...

We stayed at the Bark House at Banner Elk Inn last week and had a great time! We are a family of 4 (kids ages 5 and 7) and the Bark House was just perfect and a welcomed change from hotel rooms. The house is a wood lodge with a fireplace, jacuzzi tub, a lofty bedroom on the second floor...

Our family of 2 adults, 2 kids spent 3 nights in the Bark House, adjacent to the Inn. It is quite sizeable, with 2 bedrooms 1.5 baths. There is a couch and love seat as well. The breakfasts were very tasty. Beverly and her cat, Macadoodle, were extremely accommodating. We will come back and stay for our next Sugar Mountain...

Stayed two nights and went to 2 festivals. The beds were so comfortable and used the fireplace. Had everything you would need to stay longer. Would recommend it. Breakfast was good. Went to Linville falls and visited the waterfall.

There is a particular old world charm about the inn that keeps bringing my husband and me back to the Banner Elk inn. The innkeeper is friendly, the breakfasts are perfect and the rooms are beautiful. It was great to see the innkeeper again and catch up after many years. The inn keeps getting better and better.
