My family began visiting the Banner Elk area when I was a child. My father built this cabin is 1979 as a family retreat and has never been previously rented. I now have come full circle as I am watching my children enjoy and discover the area. Every time we go, I think, I need to come here more often and there is always something new to do and see. I hope you will enjoy it as well...
Mary Frances purchased this cabin in 2005
Our family wanted a break from the summer heat and built this cabin as a mountain retreat. We have enjoyed all four seasons in Banner Elk and the chance to relax and enjoy the magnificent scenery. You can be as sctive as you want be we often find ourselves content to stay on top of the mountain, sitting in the swings, reading, fishing, feeding apples to the horses and taking a break from our routine.
The cabin sits on seventeen acres on top of a mountain, overlooking the pond and pastures. Many times I have looked out the window to see deer looking in at me. Children love to pick the apples and pears in late summer and fall, and feed them to the neighbor's horses which are in the pasture which surrounds the house. Beautifully landscaped, Mountain Laurel and Hostas bloom to add to the beauty of the setting. A stacked stone wall runs along the 1500 foot private drive that leads you to the cabin. Every time I drive up to the top, I am amazed at the beauty and with the serene setting.
