Frommers On The Road Again with Man's Best Friend - "..a most charming B&B. An exceptionally intimate B&B with nooks and crannies that always seem to contain intriguing treasures. Hearty and memorable breakfasts served on fine china. Beverly's international collection of carvings and crafts is interspersed with more traditional antique furnishings, creating a strong sense of whimsy balanced with a slight formality. We can't think of a better place to rejuvenate than at The Banner Elk Inn." Dawn & Robert Habgood, travel writers who stayed anonymously with their dog.
