Banner Elk cabin description

UPDATE...WE ARE CURRENTLY RENOVATING THE BASEMENT AREA TO ADD A 4TH BEDROOM... WE ANTICIPATE RE-OPENING IN MARCH... Relax in the peaceful mountain surroundings of this 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom log cabin. Wake up to the crisp mountain air at 3400 feet elevation and swing on the porch overlooking beautiful long range mountain views. Take a stroll through the 3.75 wooded acres up to the neighboring pasture to see the cows and horses. Enjoy an evening of grilling out on the back deck or take the scenic country drive down to Banner Elk for a nice evening out.

There are many activities in close proximity to the house. The Watauga River has three nearby access points to go fishing, tubing, or picnicking. Nearby Valle Crucis has a large park with lots of weekend events, and another river access point. Boone, Banner Elk, Watauga Lake (Tennessee), Beech Mountain Ski Resort, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, Banner Elk Winery, a blueberry patch, and much more are within a short drive.

The two bedrooms on the main floor have their own private bathrooms, and the two lower level bedrooms share a full bathroom. Plenty of room for multiple families to spread out, there is also a twin sleeper sofa and a long sofa, plus a full size blow up mattress that would increase the capacity to 12 people. Entertainment options include a foosball table and a ping-pong table in the basement.

Thanks to all our renters over the last year, we were able to contribute over $3,000 to our son's charity, Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy! We are so thankful for all the people who have come to enjoy our cabin!

*** WINTER RENTALS - 4-WHEEL DRIVE IS REQUIRED DURING THE WINTER - NO EXCEPTIONS!! There is a paved road all the way past the house, however we do not control the road conditions. During periods of snow renters should expect poor road conditions and need to plan accordingly.

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: The Greiner Family purchased this wonderful property in 2010, to be able to come to the mountains more often and enjoy the cool, refreshing mountain air and scenic views with our children. We get to spend quality time as a family roaming the mountains, to escape the hectic life of school and work at home!

              Why the Owner Chose Banner Elk:
              Imagine How: We also strive to support research to find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy, as our second son Matthew (age 9) has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. DMD is a degenerative, fatal muscular disorder that currently has no cure and not many options to even help mitigate the effects. Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy is one group that is dedicated to providing funding for muscular dystrophy research, and has helped us run several fundraisers. As parents we can only hope and pray that a cure is found for all these young boys. Please help support our cause by renting our cabin. A portion of the income generated will go to support muscular dystrophy research. See Matthew's website, ImagineHow . org (without spaces) for more information or if you are interested in supporting directly.
