About Lani Owens

I am a North Carolina native that attended college at Appalachian State. I am a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan wars and have served over 20 years in the Army thus far. I have a beautiful 10 year old daughter who loves to travel as much as I do. We both love to come back to the cabin whenever we can.

Lani Owens purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Lani Owens chose Banner Elk

My daughter and I found this cabin when she was only a few months old, and she picked it out! She will inherit the cabin someday, but in the meantime we both want to share the joy this home has brought us. Appalachian was the 1st word she could read, which speaks to her fondness of the area which is so rich in culture and untouched beauty.

What makes this cabin unique

Amazing views and accessible seclusion.

Personalized decorating and welcoming feel.

Property is on a ridge with a small stream at the bottom for those that like to explore.

A Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Spent our first Christmas in the mountains. What an awesome trip. The Cabin was exactly as described. Very cozy and the Christmas tree and decorations were a bonus. The entire family had a great time. We visited local favorites. Went tubing at Sugar Mountain. It snowed a little Christmas Eve, giving us a white Christmas. Thank you Lani for the use of your home. Highly recommended for a relaxing and comfortable vacation.

Our cabin is not an investment property. It is our future home. I am a single working mother and hope to be able to retire here after the Army is finished with me. I only rent our cabin to be able to afford the mortgage. When you come you will see and feel the difference between our home and other rental properties. Everything about this place is personal from the furniture and decorations to the personal labor I have put in to finish the basement. I ask that you treat my home as your home away from home. I have not charged for accidents if they were reported to me by the renters. However, I have asked my cleaning crew to be diligent on checking and cleaning.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
