"It's Like Coming Home"
"Warm Hospitality" -
"Best Ever Stay at a B & B"
Those are some of the often used phrases by visitors
to 1902 Turnpike House Bed & Breakfast in Banner Elk, North Carolina.
This distinctly grand, 111-year old home has seen a lot of history in
the High Country of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Cindy and Paul Goedhart invite both new and returning guests to share the magic of
stepping back into a quieter, gentler era amidst the comfort and beauty
of this lovingly restored home.
"Life is just Better Here!"
Do you need a hassle-free, get-away vacation spot? A few days to
refresh and renew?
Rethink the cabin or cottage idea; reserve your quarters at our Inn so
we can care for and serve you. Begin your day with a home-brewed
cup of coffee on the expansive front porch before enjoying a freshly
prepared breakfast feast from fine china, and
heirloom crystal. Plans for your day might include interests that
are justt minutes, and a beautiful drive, from the Inn.
