Banner Elk cabin description

THIS TRADITIONAL LOG CABIN is ideal for two couples and sleeps up to eight people. It has two master suites, each with king beds, and a private third bedroom.

The property is two miles from downtown Banner Elk, located between two large upscale communities. It's close to dining, shopping, parks, golf, skiing, hiking and zip-lining. Fourth of July is a special treat, with old-style celebrations scheduled nearby.

Our family shares this cabin with my husband's parents, who named the property Minorcan Ridge. We built the cabin in 1996 and added the upstairs master suite in 2002.

Both suites have their own television, washer/dryer unit and bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and gadgets. The upstairs loft has wireless internet, with a desk that accommodates two laptops.

Outside, there's a roomy front deck and a small creek that runs down the edge of the property toward Elk River, which is a short walk away.

There are a handful of other homes on this private mountainside. The road down to the river gets very little traffic and makes for an invigorating hike. Many guests report spotting wild turkeys and deer along the way.

Guests also spend lots of time on the front deck, enjoying the mountain air.
