Love it!

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely done well appointed. Kitchen had everything I needed plus.

Maybe a dad thing. But love Buck the singing dear head in the loft/game room. Every décor needs a little whimsy.

The decorating an appointments were so in tune to what I like, thinking of looking up her beach house to rent that next.

perfect mountain get away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet place centrally located to Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain. Whether skiing, hiking or just a quiet get away, this place is like a home away from home. Beautifully decorated with top notch amenities. We will be back!

Fantastic Property and Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent five days at this wonderful condo property with great views. The property is first rate and well appointed. We appreciated having some of the little necessities there and the property well prepared for our arrival. Judy was a pleasure to deal with. We would highly recommend this property and owner to anyone visiting Banner Elk. We are waiting for our next opportunity to stay again. Thank you very much.

Banner Elk Ski Lodge and Sugar Mountain Ski Lodge

The best of the High Country! The views are phenomenal with a natural south-facing panoramic observation of Grandfather Mountain in the town of Banner Elk.

When you drive into Penny Lane, you experience a serene, park-like setting surrounded by nature and buffered from any road noise. Nestled amidst the Blue Ridge Mountains at an elevation of 4000 feet, you are privy to awesome natural surroundings. While seemingly miles and miles away from civilization , you are just minutes away from fine dining, ski resorts, breath-taking golf courses, art galleries, antique shoppes and any type of extreme mountain fun you can dream of!
