About Alan and Carol Hemphill

Hi, we're Alan and Carol Hemphill. We live in the tranquil foothills of NC about 1 hour south of our mountain property. We have 2 lovely daughters, 4 dogs, and 2 cats. Carol is a corporate trainer in the financial industry; Alan is the proud owner of The Fresh Depot Restaurant located in Hickory, NC, and an eBay store listed as cookwareconnection.

Alan and Carol Hemphill purchased this house in 2011

Why Alan and Carol Hemphill chose Banner Elk

We love this area for its scenic beauty and array of recreational, educational, and cultural activities and events. From the peaks of Grandfather Mountain, to the depths of Linville Gorge and Caverns, there's just no place like it on Earth. Come find out for yourselves.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the quiet majesty of the mountains in a community setting. The neighborhood hiking trail, swimming pool, and tennis court are a stone's throw from our driveway. The best ski slopes in NC are 10 minutes away. The first stay at our house was Thanksgiving 2011. The greatest thing about our house is it provides one place for such a large group, which gave us all the chance for more family time. Parents with little children don't have to go back to their hotel room and stay with the little ones. We had 17 and this was the first year we all got to stay in one location. The kitchen works great, with one range and one cook top, enough 'eyes' for our short order breakfasts. Toaster and toaster oven producing bagels and toast. while the Keurig and a 14 cup coffee maker woke us all up. The three 80 gallon water heaters made sure there were no cold showers. The cousins that don't get to spend as much together time as we did when we were little really got some quality time together. So what makes our house so unique isn't even there. It is in all the cars that pull up and unload your family. Then the most wonderful family experience begins!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi again! I wanted to find out what mattresses you have at your Clubhouse residence? I was just there a few weeks ago and I swear, I haven't had a good nights sleep since. I slept in the first bedroom on the right when you come up the front stairs.

Not what I expected!

  • 2 of 5
Verified Stay

The beds were less than comfortable, mattresses were very lumpy and beds sqeaked every time you would moved. The towels were soured (had to wash them before we could use due to the smell). There was limited lighting in some rooms (no light bulbs in many fixtures)...there were none in the laundry room so it was completely dark at night, had to use flashlight to do laundry at night. The kitchen wall and floor near trash can was nasty from overspill from trash from the renters before us. The whole house needs a good deep clean! A window in one bedroom was broken and being held in place by a pool stick. We replaced the tips on the pool stick before we could use them because there weren't any!

But, the space was great. There was plenty of room for everyone and each room having its own bathroom was nice.

We had a church group with children and parents and your home was perfect for us! We really enjoyed the large kitchen and dining room, perfect for our meals! And the pool table and TV were great as well! We will definitely try to return!

Lots of rooms, bathrooms and a very well-stocked kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our experience was very positive. Very large home with a bathroom in each bedroom, which is a big plus when there are 18 ladies staying there at once - and you know how women can get when they get into the bathroom. Ha ha! That was a very nice feature. Also, the kitchen was very well stocked with everything a cook could need! That was wonderful and made cooking there very pleasurable. It would be nice, though, if there were 2 refrigerators. One refrigerator does not allow for a lot of storage when we bring all of our own food and cook every meal at the retreat house. Beautiful surroundings and we even had coffee on the back deck and built a fire in the fire pit one morning. Very nice. Very peaceful community. Large meeting room allowed for all of us to gather together for our devotional, skits and game times. One thing that was a problem is that this is not a very handicap friendly home. The 2 bedrooms on the bottom floor have steps around sharp corners. This was hard for our 2 handicap ladies to maneuver. Would be nice to have a bedroom with no steps to accommodate the handicap people staying there. A few of the mattresses need to be changed. A few were very lumpy and sagged in the middle. Again, overall, we would not hesitate to stay here once again. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay and one that we will always remember positively. We had a lot of laughs and some very late nights there. The owners were very accessible. Looking forward to next years retreat already.

We loved it!

The house was great. We liked that each bedroom had its own bathroom. There were plenty of activities in the area. Some of our group voted to come back next summer, but others reminded me that we had agreed to go to the beach every other year. Oh, well. Maybe in 2018.
