Banner Elk Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4/3 sleeps 10. 3+ acres on mountain ridge with no neighbors in sight.

After driving past the apple barn, covered bridge, and waterfall, the creek lined road reveals breathtaking, soul renewing views. Keep driving up into the sky because the High Five is nestled in the trees at an elevation of 3900 feet. You have arrived at heaven on earth! The wrap around porch, hammock and unlimited view welcomes you into our NEW 3 floor cabin. The main floor includes the living room with gas fire place, master suite, dining and kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances and granite counters. Upstairs we have an open light filled loft and a luxurious master suite with king size bed, sitting area, 32 inch television, and a claw foot bath tub. The walk out ground floor has two more bedrooms (queen bed and four twins), a family room with 60 inch tv, fireplace, full bath and 7 person hot tub on the deck. The bunk room has 4 twins, a cozy loft play area and tv. Each bunk is designed to be a cozy bear's lair with mini windows and reading lights. If you enjoyed forts as a kid, it is a dream come true! We are also fully stocked with games and toys for both boys and girls. Two to three families are able to enjoy each other's company and yet all have private quiet space as well.

About Tara M.

We are a family of five that LOVES the Blue Ridge Mountains and everything they have to offer. The cabin has been a dream come true and keeps giving us the most cherished memories. We wish to share the magic of High Five. Come make magical family memories too.

Tara M. purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Tara M. chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We have vacationed in the area for many years. After exploring one day, we drove as high as the road would take us and came to the location where we built High Five. The air was fresh, the trees were rustling and our eyes were in disbelief of the natural beauty before us.

What makes this cabin unique

High Five is wonderfully private, beautiful piece of earth that renews my soul every time. Unique custom layout designed by owner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to your cabin. We had such a good time. It was even more beautiful than I could have imagined and I am planning on being a regular visitor to your High Five Cabin.

We loved everything about it! Location was great. Loved having to pass a little farm with lots of animals. (the kids really enjoyed that). The view and the beautifully decorated cabin was amazing! We loved your attention to detail down to the Berkshire blankets on the beds (which by the way I am getting one!)lol.

You have truly thought of every detail and it shows! Thank you for your attention to detail while working with us and your above and beyond attitude. We will be back.

Lovely mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

I went away for a weekend with my cousins and we had a wonderful time. The house was perfect and the views were stunning. The house was clean, modern, and well kept. We enjoyed making meals in the kitchen and eating on the porch. The hot tub was a big hit at the end of the evenings. It was our first time visiting this area and we are in love and will definitely be headed back soon.

Cabin trip Mirkar Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for in a trip. Although the mountain getting there was steep and time consuming, it was worth every minute. Sugar mountain was only fifteen minutes max from the bottom of the mountain as well. I would definitely recommend this home again and would absolutely stay in it again if we went back. Wonderful trip! Good memories.

Fall Mountain Trip 2015

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay at this wonderful mountain cabin. The house was perfect for our group and the kids loved their bunk room! The location was secluded from other cabins and we loved the views from both sides of the wrap-around porch. The roads leading to the top of the mountain are wide and well-maintained compared to most mountain roads in that area. The fire-pit and hot tub are wonderful additions that allowed us to spend more time outdoors on the property! This is a beautiful cabin in a perfect location with great amenities!
