Are you looking for a relaxing, luxurious stay in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains? Would you enjoy skiing at Sugar or Beech Mountain or does tubing and hiking sound more your speed? A vacation to our NC mountain condo is just what you need.
The Lodges at Elkmont is a newly constructed condo development featuring all the luxuries and comfort of home. They are located just outside the charming downtown of Banner Elk. Banner Elk and the surrounding communities offer a wide array of High Country activities such as skiing, tubing, hiking, golfing, rafting, horseback riding, fishing, gem mining, swimming and biking.
Not only are the ski slopes only a 10 minute drive away for winter enjoyment there are also lakes, waterfalls, hiking trails and golf courses for you to enjoy the rest of the year. You can enjoy Wildcat Lake for a day of swimming, canoeing, sand volleyball, picnicing, .... a hike to Linville Falls or a short drive to the original General Mast Store in Valle Crucis (candy store, ice cream stand and an expansive park next door all incuded).
Fall in the mountains of Banner Elk is a breathtaking spectacle of color and enjoyment. It is a special time to be visiting the area so make sure you book early during the month of October, the peak of the fall colors.
You also can't beat the weather during the Spring and Summer in the NC mountains. At 4144 feet above sea level the summertime temperature rarely reaches above 80 - 85 degrees with low humidity. It is a haven to escape the summer time heat! Spending the cool evenings of Spring and Summer out on the condo's deck; eating dinner at the outdoor table or enjoying the sounds of the brook running are all peaceful benefits of staying at our condo.

We live in close by Charlotte and enjoy visiting the beautiful NC mountains.
We chose The Lodges at Elkmont because of its close proximity to Charlotte. We can drive up for a relaxing or a fun filled weekend with or without our kids. We love driving up during the winter with friends to hit the local ski mountains. We also love escaping the summer heat of Charlotte. We often go up to hike and enjoy the many rivers, lakes and parks. And we always try to get up at least once during the month of October to see the beautiful leaves changing. It is a wonderful area to explore.
We also enjoy the various golf courses in the area. My children and husband often can find a tee time at the last minute and spend some great outdoor time hitting the ball around. Sugar Mountain Golf Course is just one of the many they have visited. We also love to go to Valle Crucis about 15 minutes down the road. The kids love the candy store and park. It is a great park for a run, basketball, soccer, wading in the creek or a picnic lunch on the grass or in the covered eating areas. You can't go wrong with hiking to see Linville Falls. If you want some alone time with your significant other don't miss the gourmet restaurant Artisanal right down the road from downtown Banner Elk. It is closed during the winter months. If you are there during the winter there are stilll many resturants to choose from in Banner Elk, Blowing Rock or Boone. Blowing Rock is always a nice day trip of shopping in downtown or at the outlets, eating, canoeing at the surrounding lakes or hiking at Blowing Rock. And don't forget hiking and sightseeing at Grandfather Mountain. Unbelievable views with great trails and a small animal zoo with bears, otters..... Don't miss it! Our condo is centrally located to all of these great attractions and more! You can't beat the location!
Visit Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock, Boone, Linville, Appalachian State Universtity in Boone, Drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway (exceptionally popular and beautiful during the fall when the leaves are changing color, stunning!!!)
