Overview

Banner Elk Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4/3 sleeps 10. 3+ acres on mountain ridge with no neighbors in sight.

After driving past the apple barn, covered bridge, and waterfall, the creek lined road reveals breathtaking, soul renewing views. Keep driving up into the sky because the High Five is nestled in the trees at an elevation of 3900 feet. You have arrived at heaven on earth! The wrap around porch, hammock and unlimited view welcomes you into our NEW 3 floor cabin. The main floor includes the living room with gas fire place, dining and kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances and granite counters. This floor also has a large master bedroom with king size bed, bathroom and utility room with a washer and dryer. Upstairs we have an open light filled loft and a luxurious master suite with king size bed, sitting area, 32 inch television, and a claw foot bath tub. The walk out ground floor has a family room with 60 inch tv, queen bedroom, bath and custom bunk room and 7 person hot tub on the deck. The bunk room has 4 twins, a cozy loft play area and tv. Each bunk is designed to be a cozy bear's lair with mini windows and reading lights. If you enjoyed forts as a kid, it is a dream come true! We are also fully stocked with games and toys for both boys and girls. Two to three families are able to enjoy each other's company and yet all have private quiet space as well.

About Tara M.

We are a family of five that LOVES the Blue Ridge Mountains and everything they have to offer. The cabin has been a dream come true and keeps giving us the most cherished memories. We wish to share the magic of High Five. Come make magical family memories too.

Tara M. purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Tara M. chose Banner Elk

We have vacationed in the area for many years. After exploring one day, we drove as high as the road would take us and came to the location where we built High Five. The air was fresh, the trees were rustling and our eyes were in disbelief of the natural beauty before us.

What makes this cabin unique

High Five is wonderfully private, beautiful piece of earth that renews my soul every time. Unique custom layout designed by owner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to your cabin. We had such a good time. It was even more beautiful than I could have imagined and I am planning on being a regular visitor to your High Five Cabin.



We loved everything about it! Location was great. Loved having to pass a little farm with lots of animals. (the kids really enjoyed that). The view and the beautifully decorated cabin was amazing! We loved your attention to detail down to the Berkshire blankets on the beds (which by the way I am getting one!)lol.



You have truly thought of every detail and it shows! Thank you for your attention to detail while working with us and your above and beyond attitude. We will be back.

Mountain Top Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect family friendly vacation home for us. It is located at the end of a quaint mountain road on top of a ridge with breathtaking views, especially the sunrise. Though your in blissful isolation, it only took us 10 minutes to drive to Valle Crucis. There we found a wonderful stream-side park and the Mast General store, which is a landmark that is worth a visit.

The cabin itself was very cozy with a unique layout that worked great for the two families in our group. There are multiple master suites and both the kitchen/ living room area and the family room area are large enough for the whole group to hang out. The kids bunk room is very cool as well. Lots of very unique spaces and architecture in the cabin, and also worth mentioning---the hot tub was awesome after a day on the ski slopes.

The area has more to do then we could fit in during a long weekend, but we will be returning. We also found a fantastic little place for lunch or dinner in Boone---the Coyote Kitchen. It's tex-mex/ Caribbean, and all delicious. Good enough to back the next day.

Beautiful views, great location, fabulous weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We went for a couples weekend with a few other couples, we had plenty of room and had a blast. We hardly left the house because the views were unbeleivable and it was so relaxing. We have already talked about how we can't wait to go back! Also, the hot tub was an excellent addition- it was snowing and freezing outside but we still spent plenty time relaxing in the hot tub! I would suggest going for the Spring/Summer too because of the amazing views.

beautiful clean cabin

  • 4 of 5

Home was beautiful with great views high on the mountain. It was clean and spacious! Would rent again! Only issue was there were no trash bags and we didn't think to bring them ourselves. Lots of rooms and and great bunk room for the kids with TV. Appreciated the many hooks through the house with all the ski gear we had!

Owners directions were great and were easy to work with. Super nice.

Winter Vacation - Jan '15

  • 4 of 5

We booked the cabin well in advance looking for lodging that would accommodate 3 families (with children). We searched both VRBO and Home Away looking for a cabin in Banner Elk so that we could ski Beech Mountain and Sugar Mountain and also do other activities. After booking the cabin and obtaining the precise address, we noticed the cabin was definitely off the beaten path. It is in a very remote and quaint setting surrounded by woods, hills, and switch backs (we loved this). However, if you are looking for a place to jump in your car for 5-10 minutes to get to the mountains, this cabin isn’t for you. It took us 35-40 minutes to get to Beech Mountain and about 20-25 minutes to get to Sugar Mountain (and I am an avid mountain driver). Another surprise was that the VRBO listing infers Wifi but once we got to the cabin, there was a notice that asked us to essentially not use the Wifi other than for very low bandwidth traffic (no streaming, no videos, etc.). This didn’t matter to me but it did annoy the kids quite a bit. Also, the owners constantly had tv shows recording - this shut the tv down constantly including when we were watching NFL & College Playoffs. Other than these issues, I absolutely loved everything about the cabin and the setting. A bit of warning - the weather at the cabin changes radically (we got caught in fog so thick that we could hardly see the driveway entrance). If you are heading up to the cabin in the winter, I highly advise 4 wheel drive vehicles (we all brought 4 wheel drive trucks and glad we did). The layout of the cabin was nice – the downstairs worked perfectly for all the kids and I ended up giving up my Master bedroom on the main floor for the basement queen simply so I could regulate (keep an eye on) the kids. The queen bedroom in the basement isn’t very big but I’m not fussy so it worked fine for us. The hot-tub is huge and we went in very often – we found the breaker was only partially plugged in and kept shutting off intermittently when we got there but we fixed that. After that, the temperature rose to our liking. Regarding the outside, its perched on top of a peak so no traffic going by the cabin – this was such a nice feature. There was also a fire pit outside that we used a few time - very nice touch. The only reason why I didn’t give the cabin a 5 star is because of its distance from the Mountains and tv/wifi issues. However, if you love the outdoors as much as I do, you won’t find a nicer setting.
