About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, Sleeps 7, 2 den areas, big deck with huge views

A true Mountain Experience!! With a massive, panoramic view, GrandView offers both rustic and luxury elegance. GrandView is a newly renovated and professionally decorated mountain cabin. Set in the Banner Elk subdivision of Grey Fox, a gated community, GrandView is conveniently located within 5 minutes of both Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain Ski Resorts with both offering fantastic year-round activities.

This open-floor plan cottage offers the opportunity to sit on the sofa or dine at the large rustic table (seats 10) and enjoy a coveted, wide open, long range view. Every room in the house boasts this view.

As you enter GrandView you will find a great room, kitchen and dining area. The living area has a large stone fireplace with gas logs and a brand new 55” HDTV. Comfortable leather furniture completes the space. The Master Bedroom is on the main level and comes with a King bed, 55” HDTV and private bathroom. Downstairs offers two bedrooms, both with King beds, TV’s and their own bathrooms. A large Den/Rec room is furnished with a large, comfortable sectional sofa (great for watching movies or relaxing after a day on the slopes), 60” Smart HDTV, fold-up bed, and a separate laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

You’ll love GrandView because of the huge panoramic views, beautiful decorations and rustic mountain feel, 3 king beds with accommodations for 7, three large screen TVs, dual family areas, and a large open deck that is covered on one side for those desiring the shade. Our place is close to mountains, waterfalls, rivers and lakes, hiking and biking trails, golf, restaurants, horseback riding, wineries, skiing, tubing, sledding, whitewater rafting, and more. GrandView is good for couples, families (with kids), business travelers, and groups.

This is a perfect location for all the High Country has to offer. Whether you want to ski, hike or sit on the covered deck and enjoy the view, Grandview is as good as it gets! Everything is new, clean and much attention has been given to every detail.

For large groups, one of our other properties, LongView, is literally right next door!!!

About John Lewis

My wife and I are originally from Kingsport, TN and Winston-Salem, NC, respectively. I attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville while my wife attended Appalachian State University right down the road in Boone, NC. I think we have always loved the mountains.

John Lewis purchased this cabin in 2013

Why John Lewis chose Blue Ridge Mountains

As the name truly has a Grand View. The view is breath-taking!!! All rooms in the house have this same spectacular view.

What makes this cabin unique

We have a sister property...LongView right next door for those really large families!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The GrandView was an amazing place for a weekend getaway with some family and friends. We sort of surprised my wife for her birthday, and she couldn't have been happier. The place is very roomy and more than comfortable for 6 people. Everything we needed was there, including the awesome view, and so we didn't leave all weekend. We've booked many places in the area, and this was by far the best. We really loved the fact it didn't have your typical "country cottage" cabin decor, which made it even more homey for us. Will definitely be booking again in the near future.

Treasured memories!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful! Once a year we travel with our three adult children and look for opportunity for new adventures. This year we chose Grand View for the location near two ski resorts that we planned to visited. Our cabin was very accommodating, well equipped, comfortable, and the view was Grand. We were pleasantly surprised to see Sugar Mountain at night from the back deck and the lights from Beech Mountain from the front porch. We also visited Linville Falls and Grandfather Mountain during our stay. We were thankful for close proximity to these beautiful locations. The cabin was beautifully decorated for Christmas which made us feel at home while we were traveling the week before Christmas. Thanks to the owners for thoughtfully considering the travelers needs and generously accommodating. Our stay was full of treasured memories.

A Majestic Setting Among The Clouds

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying at Grandview for the months of August and September. This was our second extended stay at this great home. It is cozy, spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished and well equipped with big screen flat TV's. All bedding, linens, and towels are new and very nice quality. If you have a lovely home, you will expect nothing less from your vacation home. Trust me, Grandview will meet your expectations for a very well maintained and well equipped home.

There is plenty to do in the area: hiking, golf, yoga, horseback riding, ziplining, fishing, tubing, go carts, and lots more. We had grandkids with us for a week, ages 8-11 and they had activities all day and every day. Grocery stores, vegetable stands and liquor stores are all within 15 minutes at most. Restaurants and a variety of them are within 10 minutes.

You will have tons of privacy as you enjoy sunrise or sunset from the deck on the back of the house.

If you are having a large group and need more housing, the homeowners own the house next door, Longview. It is a 30 second walk to this house. They recently purchased and rehabbed Longview while we were there this summer so we enjoyed watching the progress. This place is also bliss!

Grandview and Longview are very close to downtown Banner Elk, but secluded and quiet just inside a gated community. Parking is easy and proximate to both houses. Lastly, the owners are the nicest people and super responsive when questions come up.

Grandview is in our future for NC getaways.

Best mountain view

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this property. The view is magnificent from every window. It is well maintained and very clean. Our daughter manages well in her wheelchair on the main floor. Hope to go next year too.

Gem of a Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We booked Grand View for our Autumn family vacation... and we were not disappointed! The house is lovely and the views are amazing. Each room is perfectly decorated and the house is well organized and very clean. The owners were super easy to work with and they provided a great detailed document with all the information we would need for our stay prior to our visit. I don't feel like the pictures did the place justice... it was even nicer in person and we all hated to leave!

The drive into Banner Elk takes maybe five minutes and other towns like Blowing Rock and Boone are all within an easy drive. We were fortunate enough to meet one of the owners the morning we were leaving - they are preparing the cabin next door for rental as well (it looks gorgeous too!). He stopped to chat with us and I was pleased to see how kind he was. I've already recommended the house to several friends and would have no problem staying at this property again. Delightful experience and you won't regret your decision to stay here!

Lovely cabin. SPECTACULAR view!

  • 5 of 5

Grandview was the second property owned by John and Paige Lewis that we have stayed at. The owners are responsive and wonderful to deal with. They seem to take great pride in their rentals and it shows. I would not hesitate to rent from them again. Grandview was charming, well furnished and clean; overall, very welcoming. The cabin was exactly as represented but there are no words to describe the view but wow! From the moment you enter, you can see that incredible panoramic view. One morning we watched the clouds roll in across the mountain tops. It was almost unreal! The cabin is easily accessed and it was convenient to all mountain attractions and towns. My daughter and son-in-law came from Oregon to spend a relaxing week in the mountains. We all needed to unwind and Grandview was the perfect spot. We can't wait to return!

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $59
Cleaning $125 + Tax
Booking Fee $35 + Tax
Tax Rate 6.75%

Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. I would strongly recommend purchasing the $59 PDP versus the $1,500 deposit because by the time the credit card fees are taken out for both the payment and return of the deposit you end up paying more than $59.
