Banner Elk Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

You may have to speak a little louder at the "Old Fisherman's Cottage," as the sound of waterfalls abound at this unique vacation rental. The main cabin was built on 6 acres and only 50 feet from Beech Creek, where only the creek does the rushing.

The cabin's interior features native ash flooring, white pine paneling, and lodge decor. There are 4 bedrooms in the main cabin, two queens, one full, one full/twin bunk. The main cabin has a single bath. A large screened porch with table and chairs, a porch swing and other seating opens onto a sun deck then a short ramp to the pavillion, then to a rock patio and streamside hot tub. This cabin has all the comforts of home in a private wilderness setting.

A second cabin is available if needed. It features a queen bed, full bath with antique claw foot soaking tub, kitchenette and covered porch with rhododendron railing overlooking the waterfall. This charming, romantic getaway is elevated and has the feel of a tree house. It is finished with all native wood and cathedral ceiling. It has its on TV with Direct TV's full movie package. It is located only 50 feet from the main cabin yet retains its on privacy. Open the French doors and let the sound of the waterfall soothe you to sleep. The "Treehouse" does not rent separately to assure the privacy of our main cabin guest.

A streamside 6 person hot tub is set in a tanquil location just a few feet from the waters edge.

An old, abandoned, narrow gauge, rail bed provides a wonderful hiking trail up the creek. Great pool fishing on designated trout waters for miles upstream of the cabin. If you prefer to use a guide Foscoe Fishing Co's Orvis endorsed guides often frequent Beech Creek and can meet you on site, or book a float trip down the Watauga for world class trophy trout or smallmouth fishing.

Boating and lake fishing are six miles away on beautiful Watauga Lake. Skiing on Beech Mountain is seven miles away, along with world class restaurants and many other activities. Boone is 12 miles away with a multitude of amenities and activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great month, I can't believe it is over. Of all our summers in the "highlands" this has been the best. I couldn't keep the kids out of the creek - swimming and catching critters. Perfect place for the extended family-lots of relaxing for everyone! Thank You! See you again

My family loved the house, and exploring the creek. We made a lot of memories here and will be back. We spent most of our time on the outside deck cooking, playing games and just having a relaxing time. Thank you for sharing your home Steve! You have a beautiful place!

Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this cabin justice! The outdoor living space makes it hard for you to want to be inside. I brought my two kids 16 &10 and they only turned on the tv once to watch an Olympic soccer game. In fact it was hard to get them to go inside at all! The river was absolutely gorgeous out back and so fun to explore! With the exception of a local parking in the front yard and walking about the property it was an incredible trip!! (Btw the owner took care of everything and was delightful. ) So much so my husband found a piece of property down the street from the cabin and is trying to talk me into buying it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cabin with us! Will definitely be back!

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our Family loved this spectacular vacation spot. Our five kids & dog loved exploring the creek & trail all week. My husband & I loved that all 7 of us could prepare & cook ALL our meals in the outdoor kitchen under the pavilion, especially after catching many trout. What an awesome area to hang out, especially right beside the hot tub & firepit. We look forward to visiting again. Thanks for sharing your home !!!

Appalachian Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Came here on a fly fishing trip. It truly is a magical little place that the owner has here. The pictures do not do it justice. The stream, the outdoor kitchen, the hot tub, and the beautiful cabin all come together to make an amazing stay. There is everything you need while still having the rustic cabin touch.There are fish in the little stream right behind the house if you are sneaky enough. In fact, we liked hanging out at the cabin so much we didn't even do too much fishing haha. We are considering coming back again another year and bringing the whole family.

Very Nice, one of the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacation homes we had stayed in as a family. We went during Christmas and New Years '13/'14. It was more of a summer camp then winter but that was fine with our family. It is very spacious for a family of 5, so up to 8 will still work well. We had an awesome Christmas.
