We have been vacationing in the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains since our earlier camping days. We have always enjoyed the abundant and varied activities that the mountains offer. And the change of seasons are so spectacular. Living in So Florida, a mountain retreat has been the best of both worlds for us. We have so many fond memories of hiking, mountain rappelling, white water rafting, skiing and even zip-lining here with our family. It's a wonderful vacation.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

We never dreamed of owning a home in Banner Elk but when we were introduced to this lovely home with it's gorgeous view it was love at first sight. We affectionately named it 'Casa Monte' and we've made it quite cozy with plenty of comfortable beds to sleep 8, a nice kitchen/dining area plus a cozy warm fireplace and spacious wood deck with rocking chairs. It's a dream come true!

There are so many fun activities for all ages within minutes from Casa Monte.... whitewater rafting, road or mtn cycle, motorcycle touring, mtn climbing, hiking waterfalls, picnic in the park, visit Grandfather zoo, tour a local winery, antique shopping, horseback riding, gourmet dining, live theater at Lees-Macrae College (5 min drive) and ASU in Boone (just 30 mins drive), take a day trip to Asheville & tour the Biltmore House, buy groceries nearby, meet nice people, bring the family or take a girls' trip or motorcycle trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. or simply just relax in the rocking chair with a good book on our spacious deck overlooking Sugar Mtn.

Great Sky Destination

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at "Casa Monte". We were two families with 5 kids and the house is big enough to accommodate comfortably even more people!. We had enough extra blankets and towels. The kitchen is well equipped. The mud room is a big plus!. The view from the deck is beautiful!. The kids enjoyed the sleds very much (there were plenty for all of them!). Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful place!

Another great stay at Casa Monte!

  • 5 of 5
This was our group's second stay at Casa Monte, and it was great. Again. A clean, fully furnished, spacious and very comfortable home with easy access to Sugar Mountain for skiing and a great view of the slopes. Well maintained with all the amenities we needed. We'll be back for sure.

Winter Wonderland!

  • 5 of 5
There is a saying that goes "You can plan a pretty picnic, but you can't predict the weather" Well, we hoped for snow, but couldn't have possibly predicted how much we got! And it was wonderful! If you are as fortunate as we were, to get snow at Casa Monte, it is absolutley beautiful. I couldn't stop taking pictures! The kids woke up every morning, got a bite to eat in the very well equiped kitchen, and headed right out the door to the hill, sleds in hand. The view of Sugar Mountain is awesome, and one of the things I liked so much when I booked this house, was the thought of being able to at least see snow on the mountain even if we didn't get any while we were there.,(because they make snow at the resort) This is an excellent house for a ski trip. It is, literally, across the street. And Sugar Mountain has so many activities. Grocery store, coffee, gear - all within a few blocks from the house. Grandfather Mountain is right down the street as well. We also enjoyed taking the girls to Foscoe Gem Mining! The staff makes sure that every little miner strikes it rich, it was a unique mountain activity and very affordable, and they loved it! We had dinner at "Bella's" which Nancy recommended, and now I recommend it to future renters, just a couple blocks away and delicious! You will read in other comments, how clean the house is...it really IS that clean. And, I was very impressed with how nicely furnished it was, everything from the can opener to the towels to the bed covers! I especially loved the chair by the window, what a great view! For being such a big house, it has a nice and cozy feel. We were very comfortable and totally made ourselves at home.The hot tub is really nice at anytime of the day. My kids loved the upstairs, the loft area was their spot! They loved exploring around the property. There are many trees around the property, and I can only imagine how beautiful it is during the fall! This house is well managed and well taken care of. My husband can usually find something wrong with anything, and he loved it! LOL. ...Loved it! Every bit of it! :)

Charming Home with Wonderful Views!

  • 5 of 5
This home very comfortably fits two families and is in a perfect location! we were there in the summer but I can imagine that in the winter and seeing the slopes of Sugar Mountain is just gorgeous! The house was furnished very well, the beds were very comfortable and most importantly the place was very clean! We had a wonderful July 4th and loved being so close to town and having spectacular views. The owners are very pleasant to deal with. You will not find more value for your money in Banner Elk, this house is perfect. Thank you Nancy for everything!

Great family get away

  • 5 of 5
Our family and our friends enjoyed staying at Casa Monte! We even had a bunch of snow one day! It was a cozy home, wonderful location, and great get away! It was nice to have the additional tv upstairs for the kids. We brought our wii for the day that it rained. The home is not far at all from the slopes, tubing and ice skating! Lots of restaurants to choose from and a grocery store close too!
