Banner Elk House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

**Please email us to book.

When you come to the Mountains of North Carolina you should expect a memory of a lifetime. Your accommodations should be nothing less. This 3 bedroom mountain retreat will enhance your stay.

The location is in the heart of the High Country and is within 8 miles of every town Boone, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock, Linville, Seven Devils and Valle Crucis. We are thirty seconds from Highway 105 Downtown Foscoe. You will find that this location is very pleasing for all walks of life golfers, skiers, sightseers, hikers, fishers, etc. The home is accessible too, only half a mile off of Highway 105. The road is paved up until the driveway, and the driveway is relatively flat for access in the winter by most vehicles.

We call this home Herb's House, named after a family member. It is completely renovated with new floors, kitchen with fine cabinetry and granite. Both full bathrooms have new showers and sinks, nice tiles and fresh linens.

Take pleasure in walking through the sliding glass doors to the outside deck to observe nature and the profile of the Grandfather Mountain (visible in the winter on the property). You will notice High Country craftsmanship when you see the river rock around our electric fire place. We promise our home is your home. We have TV’s in each bedroom and living room. The dining room will seat 6 and the living room will seat 8. The house has a washer machine and dryer to use at your convenience.

Herb's House would not be complete without a couple of amenities available for your use. There is a located under our personal gazebo, just a short walk up the stone steps connecting the property (pictured). Feel free to use the fire pit to the left of the home to roast hot dogs and marshmallows or the gas and charcoal grill. We are pet friendly especially if your pet likes to roam because you will be on private land and the neighbors don’t mind. Above all we promise a very clean, quiet atmosphere for a restful getaway.

Please note that VRBO #507746 is located below this rental. It is sometimes rented long term to quiet couples only. If you have questions about the property do not hesitate to call us. We are very friendly and as you can see from our reviews vacationer satisfaction is our #1 priority!

About The Owner

Hello, Thank you for visiting this wonderful mountain retreat. We have owned the Club Shop Peanuts & Golf Store, LLC. in downtown Foscoe since 1983. We sell ladies sportswear and golf equipment. We are best known as the Peanut Shop because we sell home cooked peanuts from my home town Franlin, Va. in Southampton County. We are very Blessed to live and work only 30 seconds from our houses VRBO #696781, #507746, & VRBO #279527. My wife Suzanne is a native of this neighborhood. Everday we are again blessed to view the profile of Grandfather Mountain. We would like to share this property with you to enhance a getaway you will never forget. Thank you again, - Wesley & Suzanne Crum

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

This home is acessible 30 seconds from Hwy 105 downtown (Foscoe) between Boone & Banner Elk NC. This rental is facing South towards The Profile Of The Grandfather Mountain. Golfers & skiers find this location within 8 miles of every town Boone, Banner Elk, 7 Devils, Linville, Valle Crucis and Blowing Rock

What makes this house unique

While you are staying on this private land in a sleepy neighborhood just a great place to look at the profile of Grandfather Mountain. Enjoy the beauty of the mountains. Maybe take a walk in the woods (with your pets) where nature hasn't been touched. Maybe take a walk to downtown Foscoe 5 min. away to enjoy shopping or get a bite to eat. Maybe just do nothing and smell the crisp fresh air.

wonderful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed this vrbo property which allowed us to visit our son at ASU and bring along our 2 small dogs. The beautiful furnishings, 3 queen beds, and beautiful bathrooms take a step above ALL other vrbo rentals we have experienced.

Nice place - convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a VRBO that we could bring our two small dogs with us and we struck the jackpot. This property (Herb's House) is centrally located in the High Country area, with easy access to Valle Crucis, Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie, etc. (knowing all the back roads helps - good thing I spent 5 years at ASU learning them). Wesley and Suzanne keep their properties very clean, well-maintained, and include many of the amenities that some VRBO rentals may not have. All of us were very comfortable and enjoyed our long weekend in the mountains. We will definitely be back!!

Centrally located with easy access & nice views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 3 nights. The property is perfect for exploring the mountains and relaxing. The family room is nice, with plenty of seating; we really enjoyed using the electric fireplace. Although we didn't do any cooking while we were there, the kitchen is very well appointed with new appliances and beautiful counter tops. Washer and dryer are also new. We were able to get to anywhere we wanted to go within 20 minutes or less. We visited Grandfather Mt. State Park, the Trout Farm, Boone and, of course, the Christmas Tree farm. We chose Taylor's on the owner's recommendation and it was perfect; hayride, hot cider, no crowds and plenty of trees, very reasonably priced. The surrounding area is full of all types of shopping as well; quaint little area. Wes is very accommodating and the check-in/check-out process is easy and fast. This is a great place to stay for couples alone or with kids. We had my 2-year old granddaughter and she got along fine. Another big plus was being able to bring the dog!!
