About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Relax in the peaceful mountain surroundings of this 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom log cabin. Wake up to the crisp mountain air at 3400 feet elevation and swing on the porch overlooking beautiful long range mountain views. Take a stroll through the 3.75 wooded acres up to the neighboring pasture to see the cows and horses. Enjoy an evening of grilling out on the back deck or take the scenic country drive down to Banner Elk for a nice evening out.

There are many activities in close proximity to the house. The Watauga River has three nearby access points to go fishing, tubing, or picnicking. Nearby Valle Crucis has a large park with lots of weekend events, and another river access point. Boone, Banner Elk, Watauga Lake (Tennessee), Beech Mountain Ski Resort, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, Banner Elk Winery, a blueberry patch, and much more are within a short drive.

The two bedrooms on the main floor have their own private bathrooms, and the two lower level bedrooms share a full bathroom. Plenty of room for multiple families to spread out, there is also a full size sleeper sofa. Entertainment options include a foosball table and a ping-pong table in the basement.

NOTE: We have hired a new cleaning service as of 1/20/16. Thank you for your comments about our past cleaning service as we strive to ensure our house is taken care of!

Thanks to all our renters over the last year, we were able to contribute over $3,000 to our son's charity, Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy! We are so thankful for all the people who have come to enjoy our cabin!

*** WINTER RENTALS - 4-WHEEL DRIVE IS REQUIRED DURING THE WINTER - NO EXCEPTIONS!! There is a paved road all the way past the house, however we do not control the road conditions. During periods of snow renters should expect poor road conditions and need to plan accordingly.

About Bobby Greiner

The Greiner Family purchased this wonderful property in 2010, to be able to come to the mountains more often and enjoy the cool, refreshing mountain air and scenic views with our children. We get to spend quality time as a family roaming the mountains, to escape the hectic life of school and work at home!

Why Bobby Greiner chose Banner Elk

Imagine How:

We also strive to support research to find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy, as our second son Matthew (age 9) has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. DMD is a degenerative, fatal muscular disorder that currently has no cure and not many options to even help mitigate the effects.

Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy is one group that is dedicated to providing funding for muscular dystrophy research, and has helped us run several fundraisers. As parents we can only hope and pray that a cure is found for all these young boys.

Please help support our cause by renting our cabin. A portion of the income generated will go to support muscular dystrophy research. See Matthew's website, ImagineHow . org (without spaces) for more information or if you are interested in supporting directly.

Dramatic views

  • 5 of 5

The experience was very pleasant. the weather was cold, but not much snow. Cabin was very well set up. Everything was clean, and our stay was just about perfect. Would certainly be willing to stay again. Roads going in are pretty rough, so be advised.

Overall, 5 stars.

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

Very Nice Cabin!! Clean, very well stocked with everything you need! Ping Pong table and Foosball table is an added bonus. Nice deck to sit out on and relax watching the mountains. About 30 minutes to Watauga Lake where you can rent a pontoon boat. 30 minutes from

Boone and Banner Elk which are well worth the visit. On the last day got to see a Black Bear walking through the woods below the deck. Owner was very responsive answering questions. Would recommend and would stay here again!

This property is clean, very roomy, and a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 adults and 4 children had a great time in this centrally located cabin. We spent 6 days and 5 nights in the area and were surrounded with many attractions to choose from. The cabin had everything we needed and had a well stocked kitchen. The view from the deck was awesome! We do not hesitate to recommend this cabin to anyone.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time spending a long weekend in the cabin. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with everything we could possibly need to enjoy our vacation. The views were amazing and we loved sitting on the deck watching the fog roll in and out over the mountains.
