About Us

Escape to The Lodge at River Run, a peaceful and inviting bed and breakfast in Banner Elk, North Carolina. Hidden away on ten acres overlooking the idyllic Elk River, this is a refuge like no other. Here you will encounter five-star luxury that emphasizes warm and friendly service in a tranquil, intimate atmosphere.

In this serene Elk River valley setting, our luxurious accommodations are accented with a warm log-home flair. Thoughtful touches invite pampering and romance, such as an outdoor fireplace and a fire pit by the river, king-size beds with the finest linens, private baths, an outside hot tub, hammocks, and a hanging bed and lounges. This lodge offers five exclusive and very private rooms, each with a unique style and an excellent view. Unwind at the day’s end by enjoying a complimentary wine and cheese reception, where you can meet our staff and share stories with other guests. On special evenings, we will have live entertainment featuring local artists on the outside terrace.

Do as much or as little as you’d like in the serene surroundings of The Lodge at River Run. Wander the lush grounds, relax in the Adirondack chairs and listen to the river gurgling by, or take in the beautiful scenery from either of the two covered decks while enjoying the outdoor fireplace. Relax in the hot tub or take a nap in one of the outdoor hammocks or the hanging bed. You are welcome to enjoy fishing along the banks of the river in front of our property. The river holds rainbow and brown trout ranging from 8”-20” in length.
