Why Ken Bonfield chose Banner Elk

The proximity to my year round home/work is most convenient. My family consists of 5 boys and one girl, one of our great past times is snow skiing. This home allows for us to bring our children and their friends to enjoy the winter months in the snowy mountains of NC.

We really enjoyed the property. The weather as really warm and we could not figure out how to turn the AC on. Not something you expect in February. We called the owner and he answered promptly and was very helpful. Very roomy the place is huge. Highly recommend for big groups.

Great, well furnished house for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

We rented with Ken for our annual Sugar Mountain Weekend and the house was perfect for our group. It was spacious and very well furnished. All 12 of us were extremely comfortable and had a great stay. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a weekend getaway in this area.

Beautiful setting; House needs Cleaning

  • 2 of 5

This location is ideal for a larger group or family visit in the NC mountains. The grounds and pond are beautiful. However, the experience could be greatly improved in our group's experience by several things: 1. A serious cleaning. Carpets were dirty and stained, two tubs were rimmed with significant mold, there was a lot of dust. 2. There was enough cookware, but it was far past its prime, with non-stick coating worn off or in the process of flaking off. The kitchen in general needed a thorough cleaning, especially the oven, and including the cabinets. 3. Many light bulbs were burned out, specifically in the kitchen and around the deck outdoors. 4. Sliders needed blinds or curtains. Examples: one bedroom off the kitchen and the basement living area (where several people must sleep if the house is to accommodate the advertised 16 persons). The things we enjoyed were the cozy fireplace, the separation of space on the 3 levels for a larger group, and the loft bedroom for a family with children was delightful. This house could be so much better with a deep cleaning and some updating and general maintenance.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of my ski house at sugar Mountain. This is the first negative review that I have received and I only wish that you had brought these things to my attention upon your arrival, as I would have taken care of these issues immediately. Unfortunately I was never contacted during your stay therefore I was not able to accommodate your needs. Rest assured I will make sure that the kitchen is clean and that all burned out lightbulbs will be replaced. I have purchased all new pots and pans for the kitchen to provide a better experience for my renters. I am always available to my renters during their stay and I will immediately attend to their needs with any upgrades that are necessary while they are there as long as I know that they are experiencing a problem.

Warm and inviting, convenient to Blue Ridge Parkway

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations. We were looking for a place to stay in the Boone area with our grown children and their children. This home allowed all of us to be together under one roof and still have individual space for each family unit. We enjoyed hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway and seeing local sights. House is well maintained and very family friendly. We would definitely stay again!
