Why Patricia Duffy chose Banner Elk
My wife and I designed and contracted to build this home. It took 12 weeks to assemble the logs in Canada, and diassembled and were loaded on 3 trailers and erected by crane in 5 days. The house was designed around the natural setting of the property.
What makes this Cabin unique
Travelers who really appreicate fine craftmanship will really enjoy this peaceful getaway. You will be overpowered by the size of these Great Canadian White Pine logs harvested from Northern Ontario, Canada. Many of these logs are over 60-70 years old, and measure 24-30 inches in diameter.

Views and Comfort
Elk Ridge is a fantastic home- even better than the youtube video and photos depict. The soaring ceilings and huge logs give it a majestic feel and there's plenty of natural light via huge windows and glass doors. Sweeping mountain views encompass the back side of the wrap around deck. Total peace and quiet- you aren't aware of any homes or neighbors except at night when driving up the steep road to the property some interior lights from a couple other homes can be seen. If we hadn't had so much cloud cover, the deck would've been perfect for star gazing- very dark. As the highest point on the ridge, most of the time we were above the clouds!
There were so many convenient, generous and thoughtful aspects to this rental- it's hard to enumerate all of them. We especially appreciated comfortable mattresses and nice bedding and bath linens! You can't go wrong with this one!
Spring Break Vacation at Elk Ridge Lodge
Can't say enough about our stay at Elk Ridge Lodge. Our whole family enjoyed the cabin and the surrounding areas. I especially appreciated the custom features of this cabin. The long range views are special and very relaxing. We have rented many cabins and homes and this one ranks with the best of them. Kevin was fantastic - met us at the cabin, gave us a quick tour, answered questions about the cabin and surrounding area - very helpful and responsive. We will be back - hopefully soon.
We are happy that you had a wonderful time with your family on spring break. We hope to see you real soon on your next trip to the mountains. Thanks again for staying with us.
Beautiful mountain getaway
My family stayed at Elk Ridge Lodge over my son's fall break from Appalachian State University (about 20 minutes away). The lodge is beautifully decorated and very clean. We had everything we needed to do some light cooking, outdoor grilling and reheating. It was nice to spend the days sightseeing and come back in the evening to our peaceful mountain getaway. We enjoyed the expansive views from the deck and saw a lot of turkey and a few deer. Liked the ease of the gas fire pit on the deck. Definitely recommend and hope we can return.
We are glad that you had a good experience at Elk Ridge Lodge. We hope you will visit us again when you are in the area. All the best to you in 2017.
We had a great experience from arrival to time to departure. The home is more than advertised, amazing furnishings, clean, relaxing and comfortable. We did have a small plumbing issue during our stay (as happens sometimes), but Kevin was extremely quick to respond and the issue was resolved within a couple hours. The stay, service, comfort and view were great! We are planning our next stay.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again real soon.
My family stayed at Elk Ridge Lodge over Labor Day weekend and had a terrific time! The home and the views are lovely! Kevin was very prompt in all areas of communication, and our deposit was returned within days of our stay. Kevin met us at the house to show us around and answer and questions we may have had. The lights were on, candles were lit, music was playing, and the fun and relaxation began immediately! We ate at several restaurants in Banner Elk and Blowing Rock during our stay and all were delicious. There are several grocery stores close by, as well as gas stations and other stores and conveniences. We saw deer, hummingbirds, and other wildlife while we relaxed on the porch with our coffee in the mornings. We have rented numerous homes on VRBO, and this was at the top! Thank you for opening your home to us. We hope to visit again!
Thanks so much for your comments. It is always good to hear the we exceeded your expectations. We hope that you visit us real soon.
