About the property

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.

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 Banner Elk

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.

Musty odor.

  • 3 of 5

Everything would have been fine but the house had a water leak and a musty odor. Tried scented candles but it was just a scented musty odor. On the second day the odor and leak were worse and not bearable so we had to check out early. Owner did not offer a partial refund. Owner was friendly and easy to contact. Exterior of house siding and roof was in poor condition. Interior had been remodeled and was in good overall condition.

Owner's Response: The week around this stay had unusually heavy rain for the mountains in the winter. We advised there had been a small water leak from a vent pipe on the roof prior to check-in but this was fixed day of check in. We also had a licensed contractor inspect and found no issues. We appreciate the feedback on the siding, this is a family property for which we work to improve over time. Although only cosmetic, we hope to fix this in the near future.

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this cozy house. It is perfect for our family (2 adults, 2 dogs), but is set up to accommodate several more people. The house is clean and well kept. The kitchen is nicely stocked. The location is great for traveling all around the high country or simply relaxing at the house. The owners are very friendly. We will definitely return to Herb and Polly’s place in the future.

Best Christmas Vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly as described in the listing. Communication was clear and expedient. The location was perfect for commuting to the ski slopes and to the surrounding cities. We rented a Kia Soul and drove without problem up to the house. The view of Grandfather mountain from the house was easily seen. We enjoyed cozy nights on the couch watching christmas movies by connecting to the HDMI port on the TV :) 10/10 would recommend this place and stay again.
