About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Get away to the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains and experience a true holiday. This unique log cabin, named Hemlock Heaven, is made of massive Hemlock trees creating a Paul Bunyan-like look that will amaze and intrigue any traveler!

Hemlock Heaven is situated on nearly 20 private acres. The cabin seems 'out in the middle of nowhere', yet is only three miles from Banner Elk where there is skiing at Beech and Sugar Mountains, great restaurants, shopping and lots of activities!

This log home with it's many cabin comforts, is sure to please. Beautifully furnished with primitive antiques, a fully equipped kitchen, and all the linens and towels you need in your vacation home away from home. Sit on the wraparound porch in your rocking chair and enjoy the privacy and serenity, take a nice bubblebath in the 1920s clawfoot bathtub, or kick back in front of a beautiful fire in the big stone fireplace on a cool night. This is a wonderful place for a romantic getaway, a small family or several couples.

"Hemlock Heaven" Is Heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

For more than thirty years, we have rented various and sundry mountain cabins in Western North Carolina and East Tennessee but "Hemlock Heaven" exceeds them all. Winding our way up the driveway, we were immediately impressed with the beauty, the quiet, the privacy and the cabin itself. We were equally delighted with the interior, instantly feeling at home and comfortable. Every room was well-thought through and clean; in particular we loved the kitchen and outdoor dining and sitting spaces. The cabin is conveniently located to all kinds of outdoor activities and the charming villages of Banner Elk & Valle Crucis. Moreover, Toni, the owner, is a terrific person who created a beautiful, mountain cabin and the property is every bit of splendid as well. In the future, we hope to make it our regular home-away-from-home.

Pictures do not do this place justice. Very peaceful and serene. Loved it. The only comment would be that the shower takes a little getting use to especially when you have husband that is 6'3. But our overall experience was wonderful. We even loved that the grill was a charcoal grill and we forgot how great the smell of steaks on a charcoal grill was.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

From the first click to leaving this morning everything was as expected or better. Owner was very responsive and the home was perfect for our trip. We stopped here on our way back to Florida from Nashville for some R&R. Had a great time. I recommend this home. Check out downtown Banner Elk and say hi to D at Bayou Smokehouse and Grille. Explore the Linville caverns and falls. Have a romantic dinner at Stonewalls.

Private & Quaint

  • 4 of 5

The log cabin is decorated nicely and has a deck along the front and one side, you'll see many trees and the sounds of birds. The only bathroom is downstairs next to the living room. The only bedroom is up roomy winding stable stairs. The double bed is comfortable. The kitchen and table combo has plenty of space and is well equipped although we ate out. Convenient to Boone, Sugar Mtn and Beech Mtn. The Artisanal Restaurant is classy and expensive. A good place to celebrate an anniversary. The Over Yonder Restaurant (a 200 yr old home) in Valle Crucis, nearby, has good food. Make reservations and go at 6p if you want to avoid the crowd. We plan to return to the cabin for another relaxing visit.

Fantastic Log Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great secluded cabin but close enough to be in downtown Banner Elk in less than 5 minutes and 20 minutes to Boone. The owner is great to work with and very accommodating. We will be going back to Hemlock Heaven!
