Property description

'Doctor's Orders' is a prescription for relaxation. Enjoy dinner and drinks with friends and family on the covered porch while viewing Grandfather Mountain. When privacy or personal space is needed, retreat to one of three levels. Each level is designed with a private bedroom, bath and living/sitting area. The layout is perfect for 3 couples or 2 couples and children. The children can have their own space downstairs with 2 twin beds and a queen convertible. The main and upper floors both have queen beds. The upper level includes a jet tub and TV. The cabin is adorned with interesting artwork and is professionally decorated with comfort in mind. If you enjoy cooking, food preparation will be a pleasure in the well equipped gourmet kitchen. If you want to take a vacation from cooking, the best dining in the high country is located between Tynecastle and Banner Elk. Tynecastle is a 10 minute drive from the cabin (4.7 miles) and Banner Elk is 14 minutes (9 miles). A 'trading' library is provided for avid readers. For those who prefer television, there is one located on each level including a play station on the lower level. DVD Player is also provided.

There is nothing more beautiful then turning the inside lights off and watching the snow fall while sitting around one of the the two gas log fireplaces!

Some of my favorite activities are farmer's market on saturday morning (May - October), Meandering up and down the shops in Blowing Rock, eating lunch at Storie Street Grill, shopping at the outlet mall, buying candy at Mast General Store (maybe a pair of shoes also), and spending an afternoon in the kitchen cooking while I watch TV and the views. I'm not much of an outdoors person, but the guys in the family enjoy fly fishing, hiking Grandfather Mountain (profile trail is 4 miles from the cabin), Skiing, tubing and cooking on the grill. The whole family enjoys musical and theatre productions at ASU and Lees-McCrae college. Rafting and Zip line activities are also accessible nearby. This is a snapshot of what our family enjoys but there is 'something' for everyone. The cabin is ideal for exploring the high country, being located between Boone (9 miles), Blowing Rock (11 miles) and Banner Elk (9 miles).

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: My husband is an avid gardner, which is evidenced by our beautiful mountain yard. I enjoy cooking, reading and spending too much time on the computer. We have 3 Boston Terriers, Daisy, Rose & Jasmine who love spending sunny days on the porch.

Why Banner Elk:
We were looking for a place to relax, escape the heat in the summer and enjoy snow in the winter. We were also looking for an area that had easy access to a diverse selection of entertainment activities. The cabin is centrally located between 2 colleges that excel in the performing arts and 4 ski areas. There are numerous places to hike and fish nearby. From the cabin, it is a one minute drive to reach route 105, which was the deciding point for choosing this location. We looked at many beautiful remote cabins but it took 15-20 minutes to reach a main road and another 20 minutes or longer to reach a grocery store, gas station or the chosen activity for the day. If an emergency occurs, from the cabin to the hospital in Boone is a 15 minute drive and there is a Veterinarian office 2 minutes from the cabin on 105.

Return Renters: Book through owner and receive a discount on your rental.
