Mast Farm Inn

    Mast Farm Inn
 in Banner Elk


The Mast Farm Inn, a North Carolina institution, is an award-winning and world-renowned historic country inn and restaurant in the Valle Crucis Historical District of North Carolina, which has been welcoming guests since the 1800s. While there have been extensive historically accurate renovations and improvements, the hospitality remains southern rural mountain traditional, attentive, and sincere.

The Mast Farm Inn is located in a serene rural valley, in a mountain village with a population under five hundred. Surrounded by mountains, rivers, and streams, the Inn is minutes from Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain, Linville, Boone, Grandfather Mountain, and The Blue Ridge Parkway, in the Western North Carolina High Country.

The majestic scenic beauty of Valle Crucis continuously mesmerizes residents and draws visitors from throughout the world. The Inn is a two to six hour drive from most major metropolitan areas in the southeastern United States. The major airports servicing this area - Charlotte, Greensboro and Asheville, NC - are a two hour drive. Close yet so far, while in Valle Crucis, visitors take an authentic step back in time, and forget the existence of everywhere else. As Charles Kuralt said "It truly is a very special place."

On The National Register of Historic Place, The Mast Farm Inn is a member of Historic Hotels of America, a Select Registry Inn, and a member of The Professional Association of Innkeepers International.

The Mast Farm estate, the original settlement in the valley, is a historic mountain farm, with a significant variety of period farm house guestrooms, private weekend getaway cottages, and historic charming cabins. Add to that the award-winning organic gourmet fine dining, North Carolina wines and craft beers, micro-organic farm, gardens of flowers, herbs and vegetables, and The Mast Farm Inn School of Cooking, all at the inn, nestled in the peaceful mountains of the Western North Carolina High Country

"So Much More… The world renowned Mast Farm Inn of Valle Crucis is nothing short of a handcrafted masterpiece of North Carolina Folk Art". ~ Emma Johnson

Fun Fact When President Woodrow Wilson’s daughter, Jessie, was to be married, Josephine Mast wove spreads and rugs for Jessie’s room in the White House. The president’s family was so impressed by the work they redecorated the room around the weavings. Josephine used the “Loom House” to make all of her weavings and was very well known for her outstanding work.
