'Dear Future Guests,

As one of the most secluded and magical cabins of my time, it is with great joy that I announce how successful this weekend was. I truly enjoyed allowing Andy and Kelly to visit, opening my spacious bedrooms, luxorious hot tub, mystical hiking trails, and true peacefulness that comes with quiet solitude. Over the years now, my excitement at seeing these things never tires.

So now, as you step through my front door, I hope you realize what awaits you! From wherever you come, and whatever you left behind....it will be infinitely more difficult to return.'

About The Owner

David and I are Raleigh natives that enjoy retreating to the cabins as much as our guests. We are constantly striving to make the cabin more comfortable for family gatherings, fully equipped to entertain friends, and romantic enough for a getaway for the two of us. We are confident that you will fall in love with the property as much as we have!

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Blue Ridge Mountains

While searching for the perfect cabin for us, I had decided that the Banner Elk area was the setting that I most enjoyed. Close to shopping and dining, but not over done or over-priced like so many nice mountain communities. The realtor showed many a cabin and there was cabin that I had truly liked, but just did not fill the desire that I had created in my mind’s eye.

There was a local “For Sale by Owner” opportunity, but I did not take it seriously because the owner had two cabins and wanted to sell them together. I had settled on one cabin and wanted to buy outright and not take on a mortgage. The gentleman agreed to meet in Sugar Grove at the post office and lead us to his cabins for sale. The first thing that struck me was how the drive up the back side of Valle Mountain was so beautiful. This is starting out on a nice tone, I thought to myself.

We pulled up the driveway and in front of the Treehouse Cabin. Nice setting, clean property, pretty cabin and then I opened the door. The symphony of falling water that welcomed me this early spring day was so overwhelming to me. My immediate thought was I must own this property and I had not even looked inside one of the cabins.

The cabins were in excellent condition and, although in need of a redecorating, provided a strong foundation on which to build. After touring Treehouse, we walked to the waterfall, along the stream, and down to the pond. The topography and natural rolling of the property was food for the soul.

On to the Bearclaw Cabin, where I was shocked to find that it had its own source of natural charm. The separate, gorgeous stream that can be seen from Bearclaw’s back deck provided its own surround sound. You can hear the stream from Bearclaw’s deck 365 days of the year. It is a healthy, vibrant courier of natural mountain water. Little did I know at the time that particular stream would be the source of our favorite family picnic spot, swimming for the kids, as well as fishing.

What makes this cabin unique

The Bearclaw Cabin is our family’s favorite cabin. While we enjoy the sophistication and romance of Treehouse, Bearclaw has an ease that is unmatched. The openness and closeness of the kitchen, den, and back deck make us feel like we are never far from one another and we enjoy the interaction in this comfortable, relaxing lodging. Once a meal is prepared, be it in the kitchen, on the grill, or over the firepit the transition to the dining table, the coffee table in front of the gorgeous LG flat screen to watch Downton Abby in HD, the table on the back deck to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and listen to the nearby stream, or the wooden table right off the fire pit while a fire roars make many easy options for whatever we find ourselves in the mood for. The sunken hot tub provides a perfect setting to watch the stars, enjoy the snow, or the cool mountain air. We love to make a picnic lunch then head to the stream that is a three minute walk from Bearclaw and enjoy the beauty that nature has provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin for the weekend. We would have liked for the cabin to be closer to Boone, etc; most places were a 30 minute drive. Wifi and satellite signal were very weak with little to no cell reception. The hot tub also did not work. Overall the stay was great and the cabin was very clean.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry that you did not enjoy the location of the cabin. We enjoy the seclusion and privacy, yet the ability to be where we want in 10 minutes (Laurel Creek Falls) in 20 minutes (Sugar Mountain or Valle Crucis) to 30 minutes (for Boone or Beech Mountain) to 40 minutes (Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls and Caverns, or Eagle's Nest). We also love the fact that we can roam our property and play all day there. We have had a problem with our WiFi this past year, especially if there was a storm. Fortunately, our internet provider, Skyline, put in all new system cables and upgraded our system and speed just last week. I apologize it was not in time for your stay, but we are glad we have better WiFi now. Our cleaning crew cleaned and did a system check of the hot tub before your arrival and it was in working order. When they returned to the cabin it was showing an over temp error code. If you try to boost the temperature on the hot tub over 104 degrees it will not respond, If you keep trying it will go into an over temp error and shut down. I did send you two messages asking for your address, so that we could refund part of your stay for the hot tub inconvenience. You responded warmly after my first email, but never did send your address. If you will do so, I will be sure to get a check in the mail for your inconvenience. Thank you again for your compliments and for staying with us!

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Close to Banner Elk and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The kitchen had everything you would need.

The only suggestion I would make is to have directions on use of the hot tub. We couldn't figure it out.

Amazing cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Bearclaw cabin. It is beautifully positioned with the perfect amount of privacy. Extremely well-kept and clean inside, very well-equipped kitchen. We absolutely loved the porch and hot tub. It feels like the owners have really given a lot of thought to the guests comfort and convenience. It was a little further out from Banner Elk than I was expecting but still perfectly manageable. The only slightly negative thing was the shower heads – one splatters quite a bit and the other has a noisy airlock and needs adjusting, but no big deal at all and plenty of hot water. We really can't say enough about this place. We stay in cabins in this area a lot and this is the first one we will definitely be coming back to!
