Luxurious Mountain Condo - Relax and Enjoy the NC~ Mountains

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,100 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Are you looking for a relaxing, luxurious stay in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains? Would you enjoy skiing at Sugar or Beech Mountain or does tubing and hiking sound more your speed? A vacation to our NC mountain condo is just what you need.

The Lodges at Elkmont is a newly constructed condo development featuring all the luxuries and comfort of home. They are located just outside the charming downtown of Banner Elk. Banner Elk and the surrounding communities offer a wide array of High Country activities such as skiing, tubing, hiking, golfing, rafting, horseback riding, fishing, gem mining, swimming and biking.

Not only are the ski slopes only a 10 minute drive away for winter enjoyment there are also lakes, waterfalls, hiking trails and golf courses for you to enjoy the rest of the year. You can enjoy Wildcat Lake for a day of swimming, canoeing, sand volleyball, picnicing, .... a hike to Linville Falls or a short drive to the original General Mast Store in Valle Crucis (candy store, ice cream stand and an expansive park next door all incuded).

Fall in the mountains of Banner Elk is a breathtaking spectacle of color and enjoyment. It is a special time to be visiting the area so make sure you book early during the month of October, the peak of the fall colors.

You also can't beat the weather during the Spring and Summer in the NC mountains. At 4144 feet above sea level the summertime temperature rarely reaches above 80 - 85 degrees with low humidity. It is a haven to escape the summer time heat! Spending the cool evenings of Spring and Summer out on the condo's deck; eating dinner at the outdoor table or enjoying the sounds of the brook running are all peaceful benefits of staying at our condo.

The condo itself is luxurious and constructed with the utmost attention to detail and quality. Hardwoods in the living room and dining room, tile in all the bathrooms and kitchen, beautiful wood trim throughout, tongue and groove wood ceiling in living room, ceiling fans in each room, large pantry, spacious laundry, walk in closets, attractive cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, gas fireplace and large walk out deck access from living room as well as the master bedroom. It offers a king bed in the master with its own bathroom and spacious walk in closet. The second bedroom downstairs has two twin beds, large closet, attched bathroom with a jacuzzi tub/ shower. The third bedroom upstairs has a queen bed and adjacent bathroom with tub/shower. Upstairs also has a pool table to be enjoyed. The kitchen is equipped with top of the line appliances, large walk in pantry, granite countertops and all the pots, pans, dishes, glassware, etc.. you will need to cook a delicious home cooked meal. There is also a large laundry room with a sink and a new washer and dryer.

Banner Elk is a wonderful town to visit short term or as a seasonal visitor. Please come visit our condo for your next venture to the NC mountains! It is spectacular!!

About Stephen Demaine

We live in close by Charlotte and enjoy visiting the beautiful NC mountains.

Stephen Demaine purchased this condo in 2007

Why Stephen Demaine chose Banner Elk

We chose The Lodges at Elkmont because of its close proximity to Charlotte. We can drive up for a relaxing or a fun filled weekend with or without our kids. We love driving up during the winter with friends to hit the local ski mountains. We also love escaping the summer heat of Charlotte. We often go up to hike and enjoy the many rivers, lakes and parks. And we always try to get up at least once during the month of October to see the beautiful leaves changing. It is a wonderful area to explore.

What makes this condo unique

We also enjoy the various golf courses in the area. My children and husband often can find a tee time at the last minute and spend some great outdoor time hitting the ball around. Sugar Mountain Golf Course is just one of the many they have visited. We also love to go to Valle Crucis about 15 minutes down the road. The kids love the candy store and park. It is a great park for a run, basketball, soccer, wading in the creek or a picnic lunch on the grass or in the covered eating areas. You can't go wrong with hiking to see Linville Falls. If you want some alone time with your significant other don't miss the gourmet restaurant Artisanal right down the road from downtown Banner Elk. It is closed during the winter months. If you are there during the winter there are stilll many resturants to choose from in Banner Elk, Blowing Rock or Boone. Blowing Rock is always a nice day trip of shopping in downtown or at the outlets, eating, canoeing at the surrounding lakes or hiking at Blowing Rock. And don't forget hiking and sightseeing at Grandfather Mountain. Unbelievable views with great trails and a small animal zoo with bears, otters..... Don't miss it! Our condo is centrally located to all of these great attractions and more! You can't beat the location!

Excellent place, well-situated and furnished.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the month of July 2017 and could not be more pleased. Condo was furnished with quality, and the kitchen contained all you would need, especially if you are planning a longer visit and doing some cooking in. Stephen was easy to work with, always available by phone or text. Television and Wifi were reliable, something we had had problems with in other mountain spots. A couple small issues were tended to within hours, and we have no hesitation recommending this condo to anyone.

Amazing!!! The location the layout the owner!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had seven adults in our party. We can up to do some skiing and snowboarding. This place was much nicer than any slopeside or ski in ski out than I have ever been in. The location was amazing around ten minutes to beech or sugar and just minutes away from beautiful downtown banner elk with all its charm. From the moment I thought about booking this place I was able to talk to the owner just with a phone call. He always made sure to stay in contact through our stay even if it were just a text to say have fun today!! Or be safe as we got eight magical inches of snow overnight!! All in all with this amazing condo and owner we love it and can't wait to be back here!! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing condo in the beautiful mountains with us!!

Lodges at Elkmont Family Ski Trip

  • 4 of 5

The property was awesome. Very clean, neat, new and decorated very nicely. The property is centrally located between Beech and Sugar Mntns. It did not take us long to get anywhere we wanted to go. Restaurants, store, gas station all very close. We traveled into Boone one evening which was only about 20-25 minutes away. The laundry room in this property was very helpful to accommodate all of the ski equipment and clothing. Full size washer and dryer were convenient as well to dry the wet clothes. There were plenty of blankets, pillows, sheets, and bath towels. The kitchen is spacious with a large pantry for use. The master bedroom/bath is also spacious with a nice walk in closet. All of the bedrooms were very spacious with very roomy closets. We had some friendly family competition around the pool table which our kids had fun with! We enjoyed our stay and hope to come again some day soon.
