About Us

The Azalea Inn Bed & Breakfast


Welcome to The Azalea Inn Bed and Breakfast of Banner Elk, North Carolina in the heart of High Country. We are excited to announce that the now newly renovated Azalea Inn is under both new ownership and management. We are located in the heart of downtown Banner Elk, where you can walk to great restaurants, art galleries, shops & our wonderful town park.

Although we love both children and pets, we are a CHILD-FREE and PET-FREE and SMOKE-FREE property. We are also home to world-class hiking, biking, rafting and family-friendly skiing. We are about a 5-minute drive to Sugar, Beech and Grandfather Mountain – 40 minutes to Blowing Rock – 30 minutes to Boone – 20 minutes to Valle Crucis.

Whether we are sending you off on a day of outdoor adventures or wine tasting, we are honored that you have chosen us for your stay in High Country.
