Banner Elk Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Lazy K is a beautiful log style cabin perched on the side of a mountain overlooking wonderful layered views of the Blue Ridge Mountains! You will feel totally relaxed and at peace in our cozy cabin looking out the french doors down the valley from the great room with the fire burning in the fireplace or enjoying coffee and hot chocolate on the huge back deck watching the sun rise over the valley, often with morning mist below you.

This is a great house for 1 large family or two smaller families with two master bedrooms with queen beds (one on the main level and one downstairs) and a fun kids bunkroom with one bunk bed and 2 twins downstairs (4 twin beds total). The den downstairs is a great place for the kids to play or watch tv or a dvd while parents enjoy some quiet time upstairs in the great room, on the large back deck with outdoor speakers or on the covered front porch.

The Cabin is within close driving distance to many North Carolina ski and tubing areas - Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain, Ski Hawksnest and Appalachian! The community of Valle Crucis with the original Mast General Store and great Valle Crucis community park along the Watauga River are a short drive down the valley for summer time swimming in the Watauga River. Banner Elk, Tyne Castle, Foscoe and Boone are all within 25 minutes of the cabin.

You are close to many fabulous activities such as horse back riding, trout fishing, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Tweetsie Railroad, skiing, tubing and hiking!



We welcome you to our Cabin and are excited about your sharing this beautiful place with us. Come stay a while!

About Sandy Kritzinger

My Husband and I have been visiting this area of the Blue Ridge mountains for over 11 years and decided to build a second home in this peaceful yet activity rich area. We have two young children and love to bring them here to enjoy nature and taking part in activities like skiing, snow tubing, sledding, trout fishing and hiking! We look forward to making lots of great memories with our family and friends at the cabin!

Sandy Kritzinger purchased this cabin in 2010

Pristine in every way

  • 5 of 5

They house is beautiful, well kept, and well stocked with everything you need. We had an incredible weekend getaway. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, and relaxing on the back porch. The house is located on a isolated ridge with long range views. We will definitely be planning a return trip. The owner was extremely thorough and very easy to work with. She really made it a great weekend getaway.

Wonderful mountain retreat that is top notch in every way

  • 5 of 5

Lazy K cabin was the perfect spot for our fall trek to the mountains! The cabin was immaculate and stocked with everything we needed. The kitchen had everything we needed for a couple of home cooked meals. The setting is private and the views are fantastic. My daughter and I (the early risers in the family) enjoyed watching the first light of the morning spread out over the mountains. The cabin was centrally located for our wanderings along the Blue Ridge Parkway and close by to Valle Crucis, Boone, and Blowing Rock.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic getaway cabin! Such great views. The cabin was stocked with about everything you could imagine. Having coffee on the deck was the best. Truth be told we enjoyed the cabin so much we just stayed around the house one day! This cabin will not disappoint- Thanks so much, Sandy!

Secluded gem

  • 4 of 5

I am pretty picky about staying in homes. I look and look for a place that is beautifully appointed both in finishes and furnishings, for that is part of the vacation experience for me. Lazy K is simplistically designed which allows the beautiful features to sing! The view gets you the second you come through the door. Stunning! The concrete countertops and bark veneered cabinets seem to promise fun in nature soon to come! We stayed just two nights and enjoyed the Watiga for a great hike and the NewRiver for a gentle kayak trip. It was a great stay and Sandy was very helpful and responsive with any questions. I reccomend to anyone looking for a quiet get away.

Best cabin ever!

  • 5 of 5

I am going to try and give a descriptive representation of how wonderful this cabin is, but I will certainly fall short of giving it justice. For certainly it is located in a fantastic setting at the end of a county road high up the mountain side overlooking the valleys below in the middle of a forest. That is just the location, and surely it won't disappoint at all. And the cabin itself is so charming, from the grand entrance off the circular driveway to the all wood walls and ceilings in every room the interior will not disappoint. The K's even have thought of every amenity to include in the cabin to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We could not have chosen a more enjoyable cabin to stay in.

Our family had the pleasure of enjoying the Lazy K Cabin for a week! Sandy has created a wonderful experience with lots of desirable features to enjoy. The location is awesome to ensure lots of privacy and amazing long range layered views of Rich Mountain! We've rented homes all over the world and can readily attest to how attentive and responsive Sandy is to ensure your stay is memorable!
