Near perfect getaway location

  • 5 of 5

Selecting a vacation home rental can be a "crap-shoot". We "nailed it" with the Elk River cabin. We were in Banner Elk for a family, "high country" ,wedding, and wanted a centrally located, private, upscale home with a fabulous view for a week long stay.. This cabin met and exceeded all requirements/expectations. We could not have been happier. After the wedding, my wife and I had time to tour the area and look at other properties. None appeared better, even though larger and more grandiose. We would recommend this property to one and all.

Cozy, Quaint, and Peaceful

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is nicely appointed with a great kitchen and bathrooms and has a very cozy feel. The cabin was very clean upon our arrival which meant a lot to us. We really enjoyed spending time on the back decks taking in the beautiful views and all the nature. Our only complaint is that the living room sofas need to be replaced as we did have to spend two days inside due to heavy rains. Good location with great access to many things in the area.

Secluded, yet close to everything. Peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was wonderful, all it was promised and more! So much attention to detail in the design and amenities of the cabin. It is located just off a main road, but all you hear from the cabin and its decks are the river running down below the cabin (you can't get to the river from the cabin, but lots of nice hiking trails available to explore Elk River nearby). Their are neighbors beside you, but the cabin is situated in a way that you can't see them. We spent most of our time sitting on the covered porch, listening to the wind blow through the trees and enjoying the view.

The cabin is close to Banner Elk's downtown area, where there are several nice restaurants. We enjoyed Sorrento's and Painted Fish the most for dinner, Banner Elk Lodge was great for breakfast. You are also very close to Beech Mountain which had a wide range of hiking options. Fred's General Mercantile, the highest mercantile in the highest town on Beech Mt, was our first stop as we arrived on Sunday night and needed some basics. Cool place.

Grandfather Mt, Blue Ridge Parkway, Boone, Linville are all easy drives on main roads making it so easy to explore. We enjoyed Grandfather's Vineyard and always enjoy dining in Boone.

Loved our stay and would highly recommend it.

Fantastic cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and everything about it. The location is great as it is both in the woods with a great mountain view, but yet close to town and restaurants.The one thing we thought would be helpful is ceiling fans in the upstairs bedrooms if at all possible. There were box fans to help stir the air but they are not as quiet as ceiling fans. The owner has done a great job on the adding the decks and the front porch. Alot of work goes into the rhodendron walls on the outside decks. That is a very time consuming project. The owner takes great pride in her rental homes, as this is the second one of her's we have stayed in and had no worries about what we were renting, site unseen. We will be recommending this cabin to everyone. Thank you Marsha

Perfect Get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

The Elk River Cabin was even more beautiful than the pictures and very clean! The location was perfect, you felt like you were in a secluded mountain cabin but were within just a few minutes of the town of Banner Elk with all the lovely restaurants, shopping, skiing and snow tubing! We were lucky and had some snow, with very cold temperatures, but the house kept us nice and warm and we were able to enjoy the amazing view from the living room window! :) Couldn't have been more pleased with this home, had everything we needed and we felt right at home.

Great location, great view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Elk River Cabin. The view was gorgeous and the location was very secluded and private. The kitchen is large and fully equipped and both of the living rooms were spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable!! It was nice to stay at a place we could have our Chihuahuas with us. They didn't like the cool weather, but we were able to vary the heat in each room with the individual floor heaters so they could be warm and we could still enjoy the cool. We had a great stay. Thanks Marsha!
