As one of the most secluded and magical cabins of my time, it is with great joy that I announce how successful this weekend was. I truly enjoyed allowing Andy and Kelly to visit, opening my spacious bedrooms, luxorious hot tub, mystical hiking trails, and true peacefulness that comes with quiet solitude. Over the years now, my excitement at seeing these things never tires.

So now, as you step through my front door, I hope you realize what awaits you! From wherever you come, and whatever you left behind....it will be infinitely more difficult to return.'

About The Owner

David and I are Raleigh natives that enjoy retreating to the cabins as much as our guests. We are constantly striving to make the cabin more comfortable for family gatherings, fully equipped to entertain friends, and romantic enough for a getaway for the two of us. We are confident that you will fall in love with the property as much as we have!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

While searching for the perfect cabin for us, I had decided that the Banner Elk area was the setting that I most enjoyed. Close to shopping and dining, but not over done or over-priced like so many nice mountain communities. The realtor showed many a cabin and there was cabin that I had truly liked, but just did not fill the desire that I had created in my mind’s eye.

There was a local “For Sale by Owner” opportunity, but I did not take it seriously because the owner had two cabins and wanted to sell them together. I had settled on one cabin and wanted to buy outright and not take on a mortgage. The gentleman agreed to meet in Sugar Grove at the post office and lead us to his cabins for sale. The first thing that struck me was how the drive up the back side of Valle Mountain was so beautiful. This is starting out on a nice tone, I thought to myself.

We pulled up the driveway and in front of the Treehouse Cabin. Nice setting, clean property, pretty cabin and then I opened the door. The symphony of falling water that welcomed me this early spring day was so overwhelming to me. My immediate thought was I must own this property and I had not even looked inside one of the cabins.

The cabins were in excellent condition and, although in need of a redecorating, provided a strong foundation on which to build. After touring Treehouse, we walked to the waterfall, along the stream, and down to the pond. The topography and natural rolling of the property was food for the soul.

On to the Bearclaw Cabin, where I was shocked to find that it had its own source of natural charm. The separate, gorgeous stream that can be seen from Bearclaw’s back deck provided its own surround sound. You can hear the stream from Bearclaw’s deck 365 days of the year. It is a healthy, vibrant courier of natural mountain water. Little did I know at the time that particular stream would be the source of our favorite family picnic spot, swimming for the kids, as well as fishing.

What makes this cabin unique

The Bearclaw Cabin is our family’s favorite cabin. While we enjoy the sophistication and romance of Treehouse, Bearclaw has an ease that is unmatched. The openness and closeness of the kitchen, den, and back deck make us feel like we are never far from one another and we enjoy the interaction in this comfortable, relaxing lodging. Once a meal is prepared, be it in the kitchen, on the grill, or over the firepit the transition to the dining table, the coffee table in front of the gorgeous LG flat screen to watch Downton Abby in HD, the table on the back deck to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and listen to the nearby stream, or the wooden table right off the fire pit while a fire roars make many easy options for whatever we find ourselves in the mood for. The sunken hot tub provides a perfect setting to watch the stars, enjoy the snow, or the cool mountain air. We love to make a picnic lunch then head to the stream that is a three minute walk from Bearclaw and enjoy the beauty that nature has provided.

We loved our 3 night stay at Bear Claw Cabin. It was secluded.

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with how the cabin was decorated and stocked with everything we could need. Beautifully decorated and details written for any scenario. Books, games and toys. Our only negative was no extra sheets found for futon or pull out bed for our teenage grandchildren. Beautiful area !! Loved our stay!

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness! Extra sheets are kept in the upstairs bedroom closet. If they were not there, we are so very sorry! We only wish you had contacted us. We could have corrected the situation very quickly and easily. Again, our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. Thank you for your kind compliments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Bearclaw.

The cabin was clean and had everything we needed to cook and grill. The only thing we couldn't find was a cheese grater. However, they had crockpots, blenders and everything else you could think of.

A short walk downhill to the pond was a treat. We tried our hand at fishing but not sure any fish are in the pond. A short walk uphill you will find the waterfall which is truly breathtaking.

The hot tub and outdoor area was prefect to entertain or relax.

We would definitely recommend Bearclaw.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. We will make sure that we get a cheese grater;-) LOL, I thought we had one! We do get fish from time to time in the pond, but we cant get people to stop fishing in it long enough for the population to grow:( The best fishing is across the lane at Laurel Creek. There are trout in that stream and some beautiful picnicking spots. It is a family favorite for us!
