Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hi, we're Alan and Carol Hemphill. We live in the tranquil foothills of NC about 1 hour south of our mountain property. We have 2 lovely daughters, 4 dogs, and 2 cats. Carol is a corporate trainer in the financial industry; Alan is the proud owner of an eBay store listed as cookwareconnection.

Why the Owner Chose Banner Elk:
We love this area for its scenic beauty and array of recreational, educational, and cultural activities and events. From the peaks of Grandfather Mountain, to the depths of Linville Gorge and Caverns, there's just no place like it on Earth. Come find out for yourselves.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the quiet majesty of the mountains in a community setting. The neighborhood hiking trail, swimming pool, and tennis court are a stone's throw from our driveway. The best ski slopes in NC are 10 minutes away. The first stay at our house was Thanksgiving 2011. The greatest thing about our house is it provides one place for such a large group, which gave us all the chance for more family time. Parents with little children don't have to go back to their hotel room and stay with the little ones. We had 17 and this was the first year we all got to stay in one location. The kitchen works great, with one range and one cook top, enough 'eyes' for our short order breakfasts. Toaster and toaster oven producing bagels and toast. while the Keurig and a 14 cup coffee maker woke us all up. The three 80 gallon water heaters made sure there were no cold showers. The cousins that don't get to spend as much together time as we did when we were little really got some quality time together. So what makes our house so unique isn't even there. It is in all the cars that pull up and unload your family. Then the most wonderful family experience begins!
