Banner Elk Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 12; 5 bedroom, 3.5 bathrooms; Room for entire family!

Banner Elk is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in western North Carolina. It is 20 minutes away from Boone, and is surrounded by the towns of Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain, Seven Devils and Hawk's Nest. There is a wide range restaurants and bars in town. And just a few minutes away there are ski resorts, golf clubs, hiking trails, campgrounds and other possibilities for outdoor fun.

Barefoot Cabin is a large 5 bedroom cabin with 3.5 bathrooms. You will have plenty of space in this 2400 sq. ft. cabin that sleeps 12.

The modern kitchen is fully stocked for you to make a fantastic family meal, including a food processor, blender, and all of the other common items you may find in a kitchen. There is seating for 8 at the dining room table and 4 bar stools at the bar for additional seating.

The living room has a cozy wood burning fireplace to enjoy on those cold mountain winter nights. Enjoy your favorite show on the 42' flat screen TV.

We offer a remarkable California king size bed on the main level with En Suite bathroom and HDTV Satellite TV .

There are 2 bedrooms upstairs. One bedroom is for the kids with 2 bunk beds and TV with VCR and kid friendly movies. The 3rd bedroom offers a lush queen size bed with HDTV Satellite TV.

Enjoy a game of billiards in the loft or sit down and play a competitive game of checkers.

There is additional sleeping on the lower level with another queen size bedroom with a gas cozy gas fireplace and Satellite TV. The fifth bedroom has yet another queen size bed!

Family memories are waiting to be had around our massive fire pit!! Life just doesn't get any better than this!

Enjoy the warmer summer months out on one of two covered decks. The upper deck has several rocking chairs and a picnic table along with a handcrafted log porch swing. The lower deck has a table with 4 chairs.

In the winter Banner Elk is where people come to choose and cut their own Christmas tree and ski, and in the summer it is a perfect place for a family getaway which can be quiet, peaceful, and relaxing or full of activity, fun, and adventure. Blue Ridge parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls and Linville Gorge are just a few of the scenic landmarks in the area. The attractions that are worth visiting are the Woolly Worm Festival that takes place in Banner Elk in October, and the summer theater, by the Lees-McRae College Performing Arts department.

No matter what season you decide to travel to Banner Elk and the Blue Ridge Mountains there will be countless of outdoor adventures for you and your family to explore. Enjoy the slippery ski slopes in the winter, the amazing flower blooms and the majestic rides along the Blue Ridge Parkway in the spring, the brilliant changing of the leaves to gaze at in the fall, and the bike rides, music festivals, hiking, and white water rafting in the summer all add to the incredible draw of activities you'll find here in the place we call home, The Blue Ridge Mountains! Start making memories today!

Great Location, Perfect For Families!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came to this cabin for Thanksgiving this year and had a blast. We had three families come from 3 different states, 7 adults and 7 kids (7 and under!). We arrived and had a couple days of beautiful weather. The outside decks are big and a perfect place for eating or reading books on the porch swing, we loved having fires in the fire pit and the hot tub under the stars.

On day two at the cabin we had the first big snow of the year. The hills right outside the cabin are perfect for sledding! We saved so much money by not having to pay for tubing/sledding at the ski resorts for the kids. We could take the kids right out the front door and the neighbors even loaned us a sled.

The kitchen was big enough and equipped for us to make our Thanksgiving meal. We loved the layout of the bedrooms. Two bedrooms upstairs for my family, Master on the main for my parents, and then the downstairs has two more bedrooms for my brothers family.

We will definitely be coming back to this cabin again with our family. We made so many good memories. It was clean, plenty of space and the perfect location!

Love Banner Elk, but not this cabin!

  • 2 of 5

We arrived on Friday after a rough trip and a terribly car sick child. Aside from the shared drive looking junked up with several camper trailers at the front, the driveway as a whole could stand for some patching and repairs. I entered the cabin with my three- and one-year-old. Needing to get them settled, I searched for some utensils for them to eat with while we unloaded. Unfortunately, I got to begin my vacation unloading a dishwasher that was quite literally packed full of nearly every fork and spoon in the place.

We learned the hard way that the house is FAR from sound proof. If the top story is awake, so is everyone else. My youngest is a light sleeper. He (and therefore we) woke several times every single night for the entire seven nights. The heat is also impossible. If the main floor is warm, the bottom is an ice box, and vice versa. Our children were sick, but we slept with the windows open (in 20 degree weather) the entire seven nights to keep the other floors comfortable.

The third floor has a sewage odor that permeates the floor when upper restrooms are used. We had to close the stopper on the sink and tub, put some water in there, and leave it in order to rid the smell. I called the management company about this problem on the Sunday morning after we arrived. The gentleman that answered was far from professional and I questioned whether I even contacted the correct company. He corrected himself and told me that he would call the following day with information from the plumber. He didn't. Nor did he call any of the other five remaining days of our stay.

My son dropped his lovie under the master bed on the main floor. When we attempted to retrieve it, we encountered someone else's dirty underwear and pajama pants. Since you are required to pay a cleaning fee, I was quite dismayed and questioned what else had been left untouched. Sure enough, nearly every bed has a pile of dust and dirt residing beneath. I stripped all bedding within the house and washed it as a precaution. If dirty underwear is left behind, I can't imagine what else is there.

We used the grill on our last day there, but my husband had to disassemble it and deep clean it because apparently it's never touched. The gas burners were clogged.

I loved the idea of this house and the reviews seemed great. it looked remote (it isn't with two other cabins quite close and sharing the same drive). It is in close proximity to Banner Elk, and has easy access to several ski resorts.

Owner's Response: As the owners of Barefoot Cabin, we in no way want to minimize the issues you encountered, and apologize that so much of your vacation was spent dealing with unpleasant circumstances.About the sewage odor--we have contacted a plumber and will get this problem resolved immediately! About the cleanliness of the cabin--this is an issue our management company has addressed, but know that we deep clean all bedding regularly to make sure our guests are comfortable while staying in our cabin. We apologize for the dirty laundry you found. It is our understanding that the management company has terminated the ones responsible. About the driveway--While there is nothing we can do about the campers that are parked by the front of the driveway, nor the shared driveway, we do maintain our road as needed. But in winter with plowing taking place on a regular basis, the road becomes uneven in places. I'm afraid this is unavoidable to a degree, but we will look into it. About the neighbors--3 properties share our driveway all situated on an acre each. The family at the top of the hill are year-long residents whom we know. They have been friendly to our guests even loaning sleds to those who don't have one when a nice snowfall occurs. The other cabin is a rental and not as visible from our cabin. We are sorry you thought our cabin was more secluded, but the close proximity to the slopes and downtown Banner Elk makes it worth it to us and to many of our guests as well. We understand your disappointment if this wasn't what you were expecting. About the loaded dishwasher--It is a busy season requiring quick turn around for the cleaning staff. While it was inconvenient for you to have to get utensils from the D/W instead of the drawer, we’re glad the items were obviously cleaned and sanitized.About the noise levels--Cabins tend to be noisier than an insulated, carpeted home. We have done what we can to minimize the noise levels by placing rugs on the main floor, but there is no way it could ever be “noise-proof”. We apologize that your sleep was less than adequate.About the heat--Our cabin has three levels with central a/c and heat, all on one thermostat. The lower level (LL) tends to be the coldest with two bedrooms and one bathroom. All 3 bathrooms are equipped with built-in heaters that run on a thermostat. The one bedroom (LL) has a gas-heated fireplace that is on a thermostat & the 2nd bedroom (LL) has a portable heater to use as needed. The grill will be replaced.

Great place for a big family

Coming in from several different states, we had a family get together in this cabin and it was wonderful! It's always a challenge to not feel on top of each other or to worry that your kids are going to wake the whole house, but this place was wonderful! The bedrooms were spaced out nicely with 2 on the top floor, 1 on the main floor and 2 in the basement, so we all felt like we had our own spaces. Often when we travel with our baby, we are concerned about having a place to put the pack n play so she is not directly in our room. This time we had enough space to have her in her own room, but we noticed that the master closet and the owl room closet were both big enough to hold a pack n play if we decide to come back another time with more people. The kids bunk room was great with 4 bunk beds and 2 mattresses underneath the bunks as well for fun cousin sleep overs! The porches were also great for having a small child with us. The top porch off the main living area was completely enclosed, so we could be out there playing games at the table or reading in the rocking chairs and she couldn't get out but would still be happy watching the older kids play in the yard below. The lower porch was great for hanging out in when she was in the yard playing with them so we were close at hand. Everything was so comfortable and nice, we highly recommend it for either families with or without kids. The kitchen was so well equipped too, that we weren't ever missing a thing- from spices to pans to a crockpot! Thanks for a wonderful trip!

Excellent Mountain Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I visited this cabin with 7 other friends (ages ~ 23-24) for a few days before Christmas. This cabin is so much more than advertised and exceeded our expectations. The decorations are top notch and everything is in immaculate condition. The kitchen is fully stocked for everything you should want, and it even has a Food Lion rewards card (USE IT) to save you tons of money on food for your stay. The pool table is a vital amenity, as we played it almost non stop. The cabin is very cozy and you will love the stay.

It is less than 5 minutes from Banner Elk and Banner Elk Winery, where you can find anything you need. We visited Ski Beech for a day of skiing (~25 min) and Hawksnest Tubing (~25 min). We had natural snow the last two days and I would recommend 4WD or AWD to get up and down out of the driveway and for safety when things ice. I cannot recommend this cabin enough!
