In 1902, Banner Elk's first lawyer, Thomas Lowe, made the founding family's Bettie Banner his bride after 15 years of courtship. 1902 Turnpike House was the Lowe's first and only home, and their only daughter, Fairie Belle, lived here her entire life. There are many stories, historical, cultural, and sometimes comical, connected to this 111 year old, fully restored mountain estate. Through the years it has always been a welcoming gathering place for family, friends and special guests.

Today, spend happy hours overlooking the secluded, tranquil grounds from rocking chairs or the swing on the expansive front porch.




On cooler evenings, retreat to the elegant but comfortable Gathering Room around the slate hearth and wood burning stove. Later, retire to your private quarters, a cozy oasis, beautifully appointed with an eclectic blend of antiques, art, and family treasures. For your comfort, our guest rooms are furnished with down comforters, private baths, ceiling fans, remote cable TV, and many more amenities that you deserve.
