So many have asked...through our 18 years of inn keeping...that we host weddings for our guests on the grounds of the Inn. Here are some options we now offer.

Comments from the Bride and Groom on Trip Advisor . . . October, 2008

"We selected The Banner Elk Inn for our wedding locale and we are so happy that we did. The setting was so romantic and lovely and when our guests arrived we were so pleased that our wedding location in the beautiful NC mountains delivered the WOW factor. The rooms in the Inn are beautifully appointed and the Cottages and the Bark House are spacious and very inviting. The Inn Keeper is wonderful, very gracious and elegant. Her attention to detail is her greatest amenity, from the linens to the mouth watering breakfasts to the grounds surrounding the Inn, her touches are evident and so surprising. As one of our guests remarked, "this place reminds me of a story book" and we couldn't agree more. The Banner Elk Inn will always be a very special place for us and we will be planning our first wedding anniversary there. We LOVE The Banner Elk Inn and we are so grateful for a picture perfect wedding!"

Weddings can be simple and affordable, depending on what you want and how you want to handle your very special Exquisite Day. Options vary from a simple ceremony by the waterfall or by the fireplace, (or elsewhere on top of a mountain) with reservations at local restaurants to a larger affair planned by a professional wedding planner. Talk with Beverly about what you want.
