During the past snow storm (January 2023), we found the Little Main Street Inn & Suites when we could not get up Beech Mountain to our VRBO. Staying at the beautiful inn with the best combination of rustic charm and all the conveniences of home was such a blessing. We were so amazed with the spacious 2 bedroom "condo" with a full size kitchen and living room - such a great alternative to a vacation home!!! The inn is in the perfect location in Banner Elk, close to local shops, restaurants and a brewery. And being on Main Street, the road was cleared quickly and it allowed us to get to the ski slopes, stores and other area attractions. We are so blessed we didn't get stuck in a VRBO up on the mountain, not able to get out! Thanks Phil and family for being the perfect hosts and being so accommodating! You saved our ski vacation!!! We will definitely stay here on our next ski trip!!

We unexpectedly had to stay overnight in Banner elk. After calling around with no success, Phil was very accommodating and secured us a room with less than an hour’s notice which we appreciated. I would not typically stay at a roadside inn but with few choices, we stayed optimistic. PROs: Very affordable for the area, extremely clean which was very important to me, very comfortable bed, very quiet, centrally located. Spacious. Accommodating staff. Clean bathroom. Could Improve: The breakfast provided is small boxes of cereal and some pre-packaged muffin and pastry. Nothing appealing to the health conscious. Would suggest at least some fresh fruit, bananas or apples etc. Also would be nice if a few bottles of water would be provided in the room. It was late when we got to the room and there was nowhere convenient to get some water. The biggest disappointment however was the oversight on the window coverings. Our room had An incredibly bright street light right outside of our window. Unbelievably, there were only inexpensive plastic blinds which did little to block the light. I tried to hang a towel to no avail. The room was bright as day which was disappointing because the bed was comfortable and I was looking forward to a good night’s sleep. This is something so easily remedied with a very inexpensive blackout shade or cheap dark curtain. It was very frustrating. With a few very minor, inexpensive fixes, I would highly recommend this as a great choice for lodging in Banner Elk.

This is a nice little lodging in Banner Elk as the name suggests right on Main St. Their website may not be snazzy by 2020 standards but our pre-booking questions were all answered by a couple of phone conversations. Our stay was during the COVID-19 epidemic. We were understandably concerned on how well the stay would proceed. Upon arrival we found the whole process was to be “touch-free”. Zero human interaction. And it all went smoothly, the checkin, the help during the stay, the checkout. The building and decorations smacked of an old time lodging. And that is not a negative comment. It was all very tastefully done. Very nicely kept, everything orderly. Our “apartment” itself was quite spacious for our family of 3. The furnishings were complete in every room. The bedroom had ample shelving space and several plugs to connect our myriad devices. The living room had a pullout sofa, a modern TV. The bedding in the bedroom was a little soft to our liking. Expected supplies were available in the bathroom. What with COVID-19 and my family’s dietary restrictions we planned to fully use the kitchen. We had all we needed to prepare our meals. Enough pots, pans, utensils. All clean and in working condition. Any supplies we needed - snacks, trash bags, coffee packs, pop corn, you name it and it was available in one of the many shelves that lined the hallway. Not hard to find. There is plenty of parking behind the building and the complimentary WiFi is available. The stores and restaurants are minutes away.

Wife and I stayed 2 days and had everything we needed. Such fine hosts also. We had to leave a day early and were expecting to forfeit the day's rental but they were able to find someone to occupy the suite and gave us full credit. What a pleasant surprise! The super accommodations and thoughtful gestures like that are surefire ways to build repeat business and word-of-mouth goodwill. I know we will be back!

What a great place away from home They think of everything thing just as if you were really at home Try to think of a missing element- I bet they have it in a cabinet Can’t wait to return All of Banner Elks restaurants are a short drive or even next door Home away from home

We were only here for the night, but we will definitely be back if we come to Banner Elk again. The room was basically a little apartment, with a full bed, pull out sofa, and another pull out bed in the closet. There was cereal & milk, coffee & a coffee maker, and all of the other amenities you would need for a stay. The whole place was quiet, the guests here were all so nice, especially the woman across from us who was so nice to mention that the owner left Christmas ornaments in a box in the main living room portion of the Inn, for the guests to take. There were all kinds of muffins and treats, and the whole place was stocked with books, games, and extra snacks/coffee/creamer if needed. We love it here! Thank you for hosting such an amazing little place ☺️

We were there for only one night, but enjoyed the stay. The suite was large and extremely well equipped, and the beds were very comfortable. The only downside to the room itself was the tiny bathroom. The internet was fast and free, but had intermittent issues several times during the evening and night.

We love this place and love the owners! Every suite has it's own kitchen & everything is beautiful & clean! The only thing that we didnt love was the artificial fragrance in the room we stayed in. It was just a little too strong. Other than that, I wouldnt stay anywhere else! Games and videos for kids...snacks, popcorn. This place is fantastic!
