Take the time to discover luxury and relaxation at one of our premier properties in Banner Elk, the Banner Elk Winery & Villa, where our guest suites offer elegant decor, gourmet breakfasts and beautiful scenery. Nestled amongst the rolling hills, vineyards and a blueberry orchard the private Tuscan inspired Villa features eight luxuriously appointed suites, two with fireplaces. Each suite features a king or queen sized bed adorned in luxurious linens and abundant pillows, private jacuzzi tubs and breathtaking mountain views from every window.
Awaken to the soothing songs of nature as you enjoy a cup of coffee on the scenic veranda. Stroll through the blueberry orchard and gardens or journey up the mountain to the upper vineyard for an awe inspiring view of the expansive Blue Ridge Mountains. Unwind by the pond to enjoy a glass of wine to admire the magnificent sunset. Whatever your indulgence, you can unwind in your very own private vineyard setting. And, while staying at the Villa stop in for a wine tasting in the winery, which is possible daily from noon until 6:00 PM.
