Welcome to the Elk River Cabin!

This is just what you are looking for in a year around, 4- seasonal, mountain getaway retreat!

The Elk River Cabin is an authentic log cabin that was originally built in the 1800's in Marion, NC. It was dismantled, with all the logs being numbered, and re-constructed at its current location.

It has been renovated to retain it's timeless and rustic charm. The many special features include Twig exterior & interior railings, oak hardwood peg flooring on main level, full masonry stone fireplace in the living room and fully renovated baths.

Upper Level: Master Bedroom, Guest Bedroom, One Bathroom

Main Level: Kitchen, Dining room, Living Room, Sun Porch and One Bathroom

Lower Level: 2nd Master Bedroom, Bunk Beds, Bathroom and Laundry

The cabin is located only about half a mile from the stoplight in downtown Banner Elk. Close to restaurants, shopping and festivities, but far enough away for peace and quiet.

The cabin is located only ½ mile from downtown Banner Elk and within ¼ mile to Lees McRae College.

Sugar Mountain...... 4 miles

Beech Mountain...... 5miles

Fantastic location for a fishing trip with the family.

  • 4 of 5

After a long day fishing, it was so relaxing to come back to the cabin for a soak in the hot tub/sauna, a cold beer enjoyed on a porch that overlooks a forest that's beautiful enough to rival any Vista I've seen around the world, aND a delicious dinner that was easy to make thanks to a kitchen that was stocked with enough implements to make me feel like home.

We stayed here for our Honeymoon and it was such a wonderful place to spend such an incredible week! The cabin is furnished with all the necessities and we were impressed with the amount of towels in each bathroom! We will certainly return and recommend Elk River Cabin!

Very cozy cabin! Get the true mountain experience!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this cabin! It is so cozy, we did not want to leave! It is also in a great location. Right around the corner from the downtown area in Banner Elk and the ski slopes. Marsha was also very helpful and easy to work with. We will definitely come back again. Only thing I will point out is this is a cabin, so the walls are thin. We had a couple early risers in our group and you can hear their every move. Oh well...more time to enjoy the scenery.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin?! This cabin was like a dream! Every single detail was so thought out, from the antler cabinet pulls to the wood branch railings, the bear accents on bedding and the cardinal pillows on the patio sofas. This was a perfect cabin getaway. Our family came from Florida and after an exhausting 10 hour drive, we ran up the steps to our home away from home with so much excitement. This place was more than we imagined! The views waking up from the master bedroom were incredible, the hot tub was soothing after a day of skiing (or trying to!) and the fireplace made for a perfect place to unwind. We grilled our fresh caught trout on the grill, played ping pong on a late Friday night, and curled up to watch a movie by the fire. The cabin was immaculate - so clean my husband even asked if we could get the cleaning lady to come home and do our house!! Haha! My 9 year old son asked if we could buy the cabin and keep it forever. The town of Banner Elk was amazing too, great restaurants, such friendly locals, and the ski resort was literally a 5 minute drive. We spend two days on Sugar Mountain, explored Grandfather Mountain, went trout fishing and drove around enjoying the beautiful scenery that the town had to offer. This was our first mountain cabin experience, but certainly not our last. We're already planning the next visit! (Kudos to Marsha, the property manager, for answering all of my questions super fast too! She was a gem!)
