Perfect for 2 families with younger children

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are both App State grads and have spent a lot of time in and around Banner Elk. We have been coming to the mountains in October with the same family for the past 4 years and we have finally found the perfect condo. The unit was very clean and spacious for 2 families with young children. We really enjoyed having 2 master suites and the additional bedroom for the kids to use. The loft area with gaming table and shuffleboard was the perfect place for the kids to gather and play. The kids loved Buck the singing deer! The view from the porch was spectacular and there was plenty of room for us all to sit and enjoy the view together. The community grill and picnic table was just outside our unit which was very convenient. The kitchen was very well stocked and had quality pots and pans which was nice since we cooked all of our meals. Judy was extremely helpful and quick to answer all questions. We would definitely stay here again!

Just Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at your condo...the owners were great - very helpful. In the condo, everything was clean, orderly and comfortable. Even though it rained the whole weekend, we were still able to enjoy the views and the areas around town. Love the little town of Banner Elk! Cant wait to come back, but next time it will be for a week and we would love to me back to this same place. :)

Beautiful apartment in Banner Elk

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 adults spent 3 nights in this lovely apartment in Banner Elk. It was beautifully decorated - very upscale. The beds were very comfortable with all of the conveniences of home. Each room had a fan in it which we enjoy having as we are used to this living in Florida. We watched sports together in the living area where there was plenty of sitting room. The condo is on the second floor and has a beautiful view of the mountains and plenty of seating room on the porch. Would definitely return to this apartment.

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!
