Welcome to the Elk River Cabin!

This is just what you are looking for in a year around, 4- seasonal, mountain getaway retreat!

The Elk River Cabin is an authentic log cabin that was originally built in the 1800's in Marion, NC. It was dismantled, with all the logs being numbered, and re-constructed at its current location.

It has been renovated to retain it's timeless and rustic charm. The many special features include Twig exterior & interior railings, oak hardwood peg flooring on main level, full masonry stone fireplace in the living room and fully renovated baths.

The cabin is located only ½ mile from downtown Banner Elk and within ¼ mile to Lees McRae College.

Sugar Mountain...... 4 miles

Great quick getaway with the family.

  • 5 of 5

They House was very clean and well maintained. Very comfortable even in very cold temp. Road was well maintained and easy access even in wintery weather. The house was cozy and a great way to spend the new year holiday. Great views to enjoy.

Beautiful cabin in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights in October with a total of 3 couples. It was a perfect gathering place. The cabin is beautiful, not far from town, but it seems like you're in the middle of nowhere with gorgeous views of the mountains, the sounds of the rushing river down below and no other houses in sight. It's a great size for 3 couples, although we could have fit even more people, but would have then sacrificed a little privacy. There are 3 bedrooms, one of which has 2 double beds, then there is an open area in the lowest level of the 3 stories that has bunk beds, perfect for kids. I highly recommend staying here. Also, Marsha was a pleasure to work with. Even though we went back and forth on whether to bring dogs with us, I received a refund of our pet fee along with the security deposit promptly after our stay, since we decided not to bring them.

Wonderful well designed getaway property.

  • 4 of 5

The refurbished cabin was very well maintained and equipped with everything you need. It was very private yet close to downtown. Parking was tight but adequate. The property was spotless and tastefully furnished.

Beautiful and close to town.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very roomy and beautifully decorated. We had plenty of room for six people. Even though it is close to town it still has a view.
