About the property

Cabin, sleeps 8, VIEWS!! ***Wireless Internet Available***

Relax in the peaceful mountain surroundings of this 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom log cabin. Wake up to the crisp mountain air and swing on the porch overlooking beautiful long range mountain views. Take a stroll through the 3.75 wooded acres up to the neighboring pasture to see the cows and horses. Enjoy an evening of grilling out on the back deck or take the scenic country drive down to Banner Elk for a nice evening out.

There are many activities in close proximity to the house. The Watauga River has three nearby access points to go fishing, tubing, or picnicking. Nearby Valle Crucis has a large park with lots of weekend events, and another river access point. Boone, Banner Elk, Watauga Lake (Tennessee), Beech Mountain Ski Resort, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, a winery, a blueberry patch, and much more are within a short drive.

The two bedrooms on the main level have their own bathrooms. The two lower level bedrooms share a hall bathroom. Recently renovated lower level!! Plenty of room for multiple families to spread out.

NOTE: We have hired a new cleaning service as of 1/20/16, thank you for your comments as we strive to ensure the upkeep of our home!

WINTER RENTALS: If there is snow or ice, you MUST have all-wheel or 4-wheel drive to access the cabin. The area has many hills, as does our driveway. There is a paved road to the house that gets plowed, however this is a rural area! Please plan accordingly.

About Bobby Greiner

The Greiner Family purchased this wonderful property in 2010, to be able to come to the mountains more often and enjoy the cool, refreshing mountain air and scenic views with our children. We get to spend quality time as a family roaming the mountains, to escape the hectic life of school and work at home!

Imagine How: We also strive to support research to find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy, as our second son Matthew (age 4) has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. DMD is a degenerative, fatal muscular disorder that currently has no cure and not many options to even help mitigate the effects.

Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy ( is one group that is dedicated to providing funding for muscular dystrophy research, and has helped us run several fundraisers. As parents we can only hope and pray that a cure is found for all these young boys.

Please help support our cause by renting our cabin. A portion of the income generated will go to support muscular dystrophy research. See Matthew's website: for more information or if you are interested in supporting directly.

Large, Clean, and a very comfy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website don't do this home justice! It is very large, bright, and clean. The kids really enjoyed the foosball and ping pong tables which allowed the adults to kick back and truly relax. Although there isn't much flat land to throw a football around, we had a great time exploring the woods and continued building forts that others had started. The kitchen was beyond stocked with all cooking supplies needed from an electric griddle to strainers and about every seasoning one would use so a lot of what I brought along wasn't necessary. Do remember to turn on the hot water when you arrive though. Also remember to bring trash bags, toilet paper, and paper towels. All were suggested on the great instructions from the owner, but I read them too far in advance and forgot to stock up. I would highly recommend this home and we plan on returning when we go tubing at Hawksnest again. Be sure to hit the Banner Elk Cafe during your visit. Yummo!

The cabin is wonderful! It was everything we expected and much more. My husband and I had a great time, it was truly a blessing. Bobby was very helpful and his responses were quick. We will definitely be returning again.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family booked this cabin in hopes of a quiet weekend getaway. Our expectations were exceeded! The description provided was exactly what we found. Vey nice and clean cabin, spacious, and beautiful view! I loved that there were toys, rocking chairs, even a small high chair for our 2 children. Would love to stay here again!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family decided to plan a last-minute mountain getaway last weekend. We found this cabin on a Wednesday night, corresponded with Bobby on Thursday and arrived on Friday afternoon. Bobby was super prompt and great to deal with.

The cabin was exactly as described. Lots of sleeping room, a very usable, stocked kitchen, lots of indoor hangout spaces and beautiful views out the back porch. The ping pong table was a hit with my family. We also had movie night with the great TV setup in the basement rec room.

It is a long (40 minute) drive to the nearest grocery store, so make sure you stop on the way in to stock up! We made several meals at the cabin & grilled out as well. The kitchen is well stocked with necessary ingredients as well as cookware.

There are fun things to do nearby - we went to Otter Creek Falls in Seven Devils, Elk River Falls and Grandfather Mountain. The weather was perfect for July - much cooler than where we came from near Charlotte.

We will definitely consider coming back to this property. I would recommend something with 4WD if planning to come when there's snow on the ground. Any other time, it's well accessible with 2WD cars.
