About Alan and Carol Hemphill

Hi, we're Alan and Carol Hemphill. We live in the tranquil foothills of NC about 1 hour south of our mountain property. We have 2 lovely daughters, 4 dogs, and 2 cats. Carol is a corporate trainer in the financial industry; Alan is the proud owner of an eBay store listed as cookwareconnection.

Alan and Carol Hemphill purchased this house in 2011

Why Alan and Carol Hemphill chose Banner Elk

We love this area for its scenic beauty and array of recreational, educational, and cultural activities and events. From the peaks of Grandfather Mountain, to the depths of Linville Gorge and Caverns, there's just no place like it on Earth. Come find out for yourselves.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the quiet majesty of the mountains in a community setting. The neighborhood hiking trail, swimming pool, and tennis court are a stone's throw from our driveway. The best ski slopes in NC are 10 minutes away. The first stay at our house was Thanksgiving 2011. The greatest thing about our house is it provides one place for such a large group, which gave us all the chance for more family time. Parents with little children don't have to go back to their hotel room and stay with the little ones. We had 17 and this was the first year we all got to stay in one location. The kitchen works great, with one range and one cook top, enough 'eyes' for our short order breakfasts. Toaster and toaster oven producing bagels and toast. while the Keurig and a 14 cup coffee maker woke us all up. The three 80 gallon water heaters made sure there were no cold showers. The cousins that don't get to spend as much together time as we did when we were little really got some quality time together. So what makes our house so unique isn't even there. It is in all the cars that pull up and unload your family. Then the most wonderful family experience begins!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi again! I wanted to find out what mattresses you have at your Clubhouse residence? I was just there a few weeks ago and I swear, I haven't had a good nights sleep since. I slept in the first bedroom on the right when you come up the front stairs.

Fellowship of Families

  • 5 of 5
What a pleasure it was to spend time with our kids and 17 of our 19 grandchildren at a retreat lodge that was perfectly configured for all ages. It's location was equally distanced for all families and beautifully nestled in the NC mountains surrounded by many outdoor activities. We enjoyed the inside pool table, foosball, weight machine, treadmill, game room, and the outdoor tennis courts, pool, swing set, and the walking trail. It was perfect for our family. The listing details and photos were excellent for considering this lodge. We were not disappointed. Owner was always available and accommodating to questions and needs. Already working on a trip back in 2015.

This was our 17th family reunion and we're coming back here for our 18th. We have never been back to the same house before. Everything was just as described and Alan was wonderful. He also gave us helpful information as to the closest grocery store, etc. The kitchen is a delight to work in, we were feeding 15 people at mealtimes. There is so much to do and see in the area as well for all ages. We're all excited to return next year.

Wonderful extended family weekend

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay with 16 family member in attendance. Everyone loved having their own bathroom, and the dining room was perfect for sharing family meals together. The location is very convenient for attractions. The community is nice to walk in and it is also conveniently located to a nearby grocery store for needed items. The pool table was a hit and we enjoyed the fireplace in the family room. There were plenty of dinnerware for meals but be sure to bring a cooler for ice for meals as the refrigerator ice maker can not keep up with the demands of a larger crowd. My family wants to come back again next year.

wedding week-end

  • 5 of 5
We rented this amazing house for 3 nights for our son's wedding. All our out of town guests and family stayed with us here and it was perfect. We had 11 adults and 6 children under 7. We had more than enough room inside and the front porch was the best!! Lots of room for the children to run and play outside too. Beautiful property. Wonderfully stocked. We had one guest who was in a wheelchair so moving between levels was an issue, but we knew that and brought a portable ramp. We had another guest who had had recent surgery and who had limited mobility. There were two bedrooms downstairs that accommodated them perfectly. (note: we did have to take the wheelchair-bound individual out of his chair down a couple of steps to his room). Not one complaint. Great weekend.
