  • Nice Weekend in Banner Elk!


    Had a great time. We really enjoyed the large back porch (and wait til you see this massive table!) Very comfortable large spaces for me and 5 of my friends. We caught trout and bass in the pond and cooked them too!

  • Beautiful Private Retreat!


    This is a wonderful place for a couple or a group to get away from it all. It's a unique property surrounded by woods and vacant property, which makes it very private and quiet. Yet, it's just a few minutes' drive to excellent restaurants and other activities in Banner Elk that will keep your group entertained. We definitely would stay here again!

  • Just charming!


    We absolutely loved our stay here. The property was beautiful. The home was very clean and spacious! Our family of 4 felt right at home. We were just minutes away from sugar mountain. We enjoyed snowboarding and coming home to the hot tub! We were able to take a morning hike up the mountain right in front of the house. The fire pit was perfect for gorgeous sunset s’mores. We watched Christmas movies on Apple TV and enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit. Very charming! I would 100% recommend ❤️
