Property description

The Rocky Roost is a three bedroom/three bath (upstairs loft includes twin bed and trundle) hand-hewn log cabin located in The Lakes Resort at Seven Devils. The Rocky Roost is thoughtfully furnished and can accommodate one, two or three families comfortably! Our home features wireless internet, HDTV with Google Chromecast where you can stream your own media or use our Netflix and HuluPlus accounts. Enjoy the Wii for the family game night! The game room features a slate pool table and the extended firepit is the perfect spot for roasting smores or use the gravel patio adjacent to the firepit for a rousing game of cornhole!

The main floor features a master suite with pillow-top queen bed; the upstairs bedroom features a queen bed and opens to the loft with a twin bed and trundle, and the downstairs bedroom has a queen size bed. Queen sleep sofas are located in the game room on the lower level and in the great room on the main level. There is a private bathroom on each floor. The open floor plan of the kitchen/living room/ and dining room is featured on the main floor. The living room includes a soaring stone fireplace, HDTV and wood burning fire and the dining room can seat 8, with additional seating at the counter bar. The kitchen is very well appointed with everything guests need to prepare a meal.

Additional amenities including many books, DVDs & videos from the owner's collection. There are DVD players with each television. Enjoy the lower deck which includes a hot tub and rocking chairs or come up to the main-floor porch which is home to our southern sleeping porch, including a vine swing and additional seating as well as very busy bird feeder! Guests can also enjoy the gas grill and enjoy the evening on the rocking chair porch!

Guests of the Lakes Community have access to stocked, catch and release ponds and the Seven Devils Community playground and tennis courts.
The Rocky Roost is within walking distance to two fully stocked ponds so get those poles ready!

Enjoy all that the mountains have to offer...We are less than a mile from Hawksnest - which features a huge zip line! Minutes from Banner Elk, Boone and Blowing Rock - great small town mountain charm with a lot going on! Take in a play at LMC or Appalachian State, hike the Grandfather Profile Trail, visit the famous Mast General Store...a few of our favorite things to do? Jacob's Ladder - hike to the most awesome falls ever! Grandfather Mountain - the mile high swinging bridge or Wildcat Lake for some boating, swimming and fishing!

North Carolina's High Country is a favorite destination of families, couples and adventure-seekers. North Carolina has the highest mountains east of the Rockies and caters to adventurers of all abilities. While you are here, visit some of our favorite spots - Bald Guy Brew on the 105 Bypass in Boone for some AWESOME coffee, Stick Boy Bread Company on Hardin Street (across from ASU) in Boone for some serious sweet stuff, or Peppers Restaurant which has some great homemade soups and sandwiches...call us - we would love to introduce you to the High Country!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Wayne and I live in Raleigh, North Carolina with two kid, a full-size Australian Shepherd (Smokey or Smoke Dog as the kids call him!) and the newest member of the family - Roxie, a miniature Australian Shepherd. Wayne is a licensed civil engineer and I am a stay-at-home mom with a marketing communications business on the side (with two kids, I basically run a taxi!) Our family enjoys spending time together and traveling as well as the activities that keep us close to home - tennis, dance, swim team, soccer...it never seems to end!

Why the Owner Chose Banner Elk:
Wayne and I have always had a fondness for the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. My parents were raised not far from Banner Elk and it seems like home to us. I went to Lee's McRae College in Banner Elk and then finished at NC State in Raleigh, so coming here is like coming home, with friends still nearby. We were married in 1996 in the Banner Elk Presbyterian Church on Lee's McRae's campus, so we got our start here and hope to retire here in about 100 years, or so it seems!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There is so much to do in Banner Elk and the surrounding areas! Our kids are still young, so we still enjoy hiking in the fall (there are some awesome trails nearby), and enjoying the slow pace of life that the area offers. The absolute BEST thing to do? FOURTH OF JULY parade in Banner Elk followed by fireworks and pig pickin' at Beech Mountain and, of course, the WOOLLY WORM FESTIVAL in Banner Elk in October. It just doesn't get any better than that!
