Minutes from Banner Elk, Boone and Blowing Rock - great small town mountain charm with a lot going on!

Our family enjoys spending time together and traveling as well as the activities that keep us close to home - tennis, dance, swim team, soccer...it never seems to end!
Becky Felton purchased this cabin in 2007
Why Becky Felton chose Banner Elk
Wayne and I have always had a fondness for the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. My parents were raised not far from Banner Elk and it seems like home to us. I went to Lee's McRae College in Banner Elk and then finished at NC State in Raleigh, so coming here is like coming home, with friends still nearby. We were married in 1996 in the Banner Elk Presbyterian Church on Lee's McRae's campus, so we got our start here and hope to retire here in about 100 years, or so it seems!
What makes this cabin unique
There is so much to do in Banner Elk and the surrounding areas! Our kids are still young, so we still enjoy hiking in the fall (there are some awesome trails nearby), and enjoying the slow pace of life that the area offers. The absolute BEST thing to do? FOURTH OF JULY parade in Banner Elk followed by fireworks and pig pickin' at Beech Mountain and, of course, the WOOLLY WORM FESTIVAL in Banner Elk in October. It just doesn't get any better than that!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great visit and especially enjoyed the fire pit! The area is beautiful with great views and the cabin is very well maintained!
