Banner Haven Bed and Breakfast offers everything you’d expect from a B&B and something you wouldn’t; your choice of breakfast, lunch, or dinner served all day. Unlike the typical B&B, Banner Haven lets you choose when to eat, what to eat and even where to eat. Situated at the bottom of Beech Mountain Parkway in Banner Elk, you can enjoy a private cabin along the creek or a bedroom with spectacular views. Private baths and separate entrances set this B&B apart from most. In addition, Greg and Amy Gardner have partnered with several local restaurants to service their guests who can enjoy anything from breakfast at Dunn’s Deli to dinner at Banner Elk Café; and lots of other choices included with their stay. From those that want to eat at 7am and ski all day to others wanting to skip breakfast and enjoy dinner after sightseeing, everyone is catered to. If you want a beautiful setting for your next vacation and the flexibility to move at your own pace, Banner Haven Bed and Breakfast (Lunch or Dinner) should be at the top of your list. Visit their website ( for special rates and availability. Ask about kitchenette availability.
