    Cozy and clean. Loved the views, the outside yard and the fire pit! Also, lunch down by the creek with the dogs was serene 😌

    My family and I had an amazing week here! 10-15 min drive to downtown banner elk. The yard was perfect for our boys to play and run. The house was clean and very cozy!!

  • Fantastic Fun with A Fabulous cabin


    We absolutely loved our stay at Hound Trails. From the time we entered the property we knew we would have the relaxing vacation we so well deserved. The cabin is nestled on a rolling hill with trees on the perimeter. The interior was cozy, clean, and very well decorated. We enjoyed relaxing by the fireplace while looking out on our snow covered yard.

    We couldn’t have asked for a better location. It was a 10 minute drive to the ski slopes and alpine coaster, a 5 minute drive to the winery and a 7 minute drive to downtown Banner Elk. We also hiked a beautiful trail with waterfalls, this was also very close to the cabin.

    We can’t wait to come back in the warmer months and enjoy the local art festivals and mountain biking trails.

  • It was amazing!!!


    We had a fabulous stay at Hound Trails Cabin. From the coziness of the living space to the amazing views of the mountains, it was just a beauty of a place. We loved the decor of the cabin and the efficiency in the kitchen. We loved the close distance to the ski slopes, wineries, and great places to eat. Yes, we will be back!!
