Overview

Banner Elk Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

MOUNTAIN PARADISE - FISHERMAN’S RETREAT!

This four bedroom, two bath, Lincoln Log style cabin is anything but rustic as the kitchen appliances are new, internet access as well as Wi-Fi is available. You can feel your blood pressure start to drop as you drive up the winding 1500 foot long private landscaped driveway. Located on 17 acres and secluded on top a mountain, the cabin overlooks a valley and horse pastures. A stream runs thru the property and has a pond that comes complete with a fishing dock and gazebo. The house is near trout streams for the fly fishing enthusiast. If you don’t fish, relax in the magnificent sunroom and enjoy the panoramic mountain view, or enjoy sitting on the covered front porch in the rocking chairs and enjoy watching the hummingbirds, deer, turkey and other wildlife.

All of your guests will enjoy their privacy as the cabin has 2200 square feet of covered living area, ten rooms and comfortably sleeps eight. There is a bedroom on the ground floor which has a queen size bed. Upstairs, there are two master bedrooms with king size beds while the fourth has a trundle bed. It is perfect retreat to comfortably accomodate two families. There is a full bathroom on each floor. This cabin has Satellite TV in the living room, DVD in the sunroom and lots of special features including a ramp entry, custom wormy chestnut cabinetry, hardwood floors downstairs and carpeting upstairs, exposed beams, luxurious bath towels and linens, washer/dryer, a covered parking area and more. When the weather is cool, sit in the living room, enjoy the wood burning fireplace and toast marshmallows or sit in the sunroom and watch the colors of autumn unfold.

Escape the heat as this cabin is 4200 ft. above sea level and located in Banner Elk, which has the highest elevation of any city in the Southeast. In the fall, the temperature starts to drop but not to worry as there is baseboard heat and you can set the thermostat in each room to your liking. There are lots of activities nearby including canoeing, nearby ski slopes, fishing, rock climbing, zip lining, mountain biking, gem mining, and hiking. Pick blueberries and blackberries in season or pick apples or pears from the fruit trees on this unique property. Four wheel, chains or all wheel drive required in winter conditions. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity!

About Mary Frances

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

Why Mary Frances chose Banner Elk

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

The owner worked with us last minute and we appreciate it so much. We had such a fun weekend. The cabin was cosy and roomy! We especially loved the sun room, such a pretty view out the windows! Thanks again

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was my first experience with VRBO. It was such an enjoyable experience my family is ready to go back as soon as we can. During our visit we got a lot of snow. The cabin was very comfortable with an ample supply of firewood. The owner contacted us to make sure we were warm and comfortable which was a really nice touch.

If you are looking for the perfect weekend getaway, or want to go off the 'grid' for an extended period of time, I highly recommend this property. Off the grid is a relative term with this property as we watched any football game we wanted and the wireless network allowed us to stay in touch with our work commitments.

The cabin has everything you need. Just go!

Absolute Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing, we loved that it was out to its self, but close enough to town that you didn't have to drive far to do things. The horses were an absolute joy, our son got to hand feed, which he had never done. They were so gentle. We even saw a bear crossing the road going to Banner Elk! We all just loved the cabin and the location. The cabin was well stocked with all you need and the sun room was our favorite spot in the cabin. We can not wait to go back and hope to stay at the cabin again. Mary was a so nice to talk to and gave us great directions to get there. Over all we had an excellent trip thanks to Mary and her beautiful cabin.

A relaxing, well-equipped cabin with a gorgeous sunroom!

  • 5 of 5

My family just enjoyed a fabulous weekend in this cabin. It was two married couples and 3 children. The layout of the cabin was very easy for 2, even 3 families to share. Two upstairs rooms have king-size beds, which I consider a great feature, and the downstairs bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed. The kitchen is large and superbly equipped, and the sunroom off the kitchen has wonderful, comfortable chairs, a sofa, and a table for reading, napping, playing card games, or just enjoying the scenery. The location is extremely convenient to downtown Banner Elk and Beech Mountain. Highly recommended -- I hope to stay there again!

ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin with us! It was everything & more than we expected. The information you provided before our arrival was very helpful. (Driving directions, do's & don'ts etc...) The cabin nightly rate was very reasonable. We had several family members with us and we had plenty of room. Everything was clean when we arrived and the kitchen was well equipped for our meals. We were close to both ski resorts which was a plus for us. Everyone in my family thanks you and we plan to return next year.
