Guestbook comments from the manager

The Getaway was everything we needed! Perfect place to relax, enjoy the mountain views and "Getaway". The house is fully furnished and all we needed to bring was our food, drink and personal items. Everything is very well maintained and is in town, so you are close to everything in Banner Elk. The house is on a very quiet street and the paved driveway was a bonus. We even walked into downtown, via the Greenway Trail. Had a great time and will be back very soon.

Nice place to stay. Cozy and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

This house had everything we needed for a stay. My daughter loved the bunk bed and wifi. We all enjoyed the deck and having a kitchen with so many convenient supplies. Loved the location so close to town, but felt private. Washer and dryer came in handy too. Only downside was the gas fireplace. I tried to follow the directions to light it, but gave up. Didn't need it anyway though, it was warm enough. Backing down the driveway was scary at first, but I was a pro by the end of the weekend.overall, we all agree that we would like to visit again. My daughter says to add "it was amazing "!

Perfect anniversary "getaway"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the getaway for our wedding anniversary and we loved it! Nice and very clean along with well equipped with anything you need during the stay. The cabin is convenient to town and easy to get to. It was the perfect location for venturing out to local attractions. We would definitely stay again!

You need to get away to the Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed here for our last minute vacation. It was perfect in every way. The house was very clean

and had all the little extras needed like spices and coffee, cleaning supplies, plenty of kitchen supplies and very

comfortable bedding and furnishings. We spent each day with a late sleep-in and watching the Olympics. Then

we ventured out and took a mini-adventure between Boone, Blowing Rock, West Jefferson and Linville. We

ate well at the local restaurants and enjoyed driving on the Parkway with stops along the way. This was the first

time our entire family has been together for several years for a break and we will be back soon. We had to stay somewhere else in town the last few days of our stay and we definitely liked the Getaway for the amenities it

offered in comparison to the other place. The rental manager was very accommodating as well and worked with us in every way to make sure we had what we needed. I would highly recommend this place and Banner Elk Mountain Cabins for any vacation plans in the future.

Just what we needed

  • 4 of 5

This is a really good spot, both the house and the town. Easy access to the park, "downtown" area, and main highways getting there. Yes the driveway is very steep and could present a problem in the winter (if there's precipitation) but we were there for 4th of July and while it took once or twice to figure out the backing out, turning around deal, after that it was really no big deal. The only real "concern" I have is that there is no central air. I get it, it's a mountain home and all that but it was a bit warm at times even with windows open and fans running. But I wouldn't let that deter me from staying again or recommending to others. The bedrooms were perfect for what we needed. The view was nice from the deck, though if those trees were just a bit shorter, it'd be even better....but again, not a huge deal. We were looking to just get out of town for a couple of days and escape to somewhere nice and different and we certainly got what we wanted by staying here. And the owner was incredibly accommodating and easy to work with.

Owner's Response: With temps topping out in the mid 80's this summer, we do have an A/C unit in the master bedroom window and one bigger floor unit in the living room. Combined with the ceiling fans......they keep the house nice and cool. Thank you so much for your kind words and you are welcome back anytime!
