About the Property

3 BR, 3 BA cabin sleeps 8-10 guests

Our luxury Colorado style log cabin, "Crystal Cabin", sits atop a 4500 foot mountain just beyond the quaint town of Banner Elk. Situated ideally between two major NC ski resorts, Sugar and Beech you will have the best of everything. It is a short drive to many local attractions and activities including Grandfather Mountain & Linville Caverns. This area has numerous outdoor adventures to be had, hiking trails, golf courses, tennis courts, fly fishing, horseback riding and most any other outdoor activity you can imagine. Wild Cat Lake is close-by offering volleyball, horseshoes, swimming, canoeing, picnicking and fishing.

Honestly, you may never want to leave the house once you take in the panoramic views from the large deck. Our cabin has everything you need for an enjoyable getaway. Sorry, but NO pets allowed.

MAIN LEVEL: The master suite has a king size bed, flat screen TV, and luxury spa bath separate soaker tub and walk-in shower along with walk-in closets. It also has private access to the spacious deck and our luxurious 6 person hot tub.

The chef's kitchen with gas range, stainless-steel appliances and is open and inviting. Serve your guests seated at our one-of-a-kind solid redwood dining table with matching benches. Find yourself relaxing in the two-story, exposed beam living area with a wood-burning, river rock fireplace.

This is all adjacent a massive wall of windows giving way to breathtaking long range mountain views. The home is well appointed giving much detail to the furnishings. Enjoy the outdoors as much as the inside. The gas grill, fire pit and outdoor seating will make dining alfresco a must.

UPPER LEVEL: A walk up the split-log stairs you will find two bedrooms, a loft with queen sleeper sofa, as well as a full bath. It is open to the main level with room to spread out. There is a king Aspen log bed and bunks (twin over double) in the larger bedroom along with a flat screen TV. The second bedroom down the hall has a queen bed (no TV).

LOWER LEVEL: Downstairs you will find the game/media room with pool and air hockey tables, and a flat-screen television. The walk-out basement has a dedicated full bath all to itself as well as a gas fireplace. You will also find direct access to the two-car garage and outdoor space. There is ample paved parking for all your guests.

Check in time is after 4:00 pm. Check out time is before 11:00 am.


As you plan your trip to the mountains, please remember we do get rain, snow, ice, and some very foggy days with occasional inconveniences which are out of our control. Winter weather in the Blue Ridge Mountains can occur from November through April. The majority of homes are accessed by mountain roads, which will be icy and slick in winter weather. For the safety of you and your guests, please be prepared to drive in snow and/or ice. THIS MEANS 4-WHEEL DRIVE/AWD, GOOD TIRES, AND CHAINS! IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE PREPARED FOR HAZARDOUS ROAD CONDITIONS. THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS RESULTING FROM YOUR NEGLIGENCE IN THIS MATTER!

Car: Necessary

During Winter months (November thru April), 4WD OR AWD vehicles are REQUIRED in order to reach our home because of all the snow and ice on the ground.

Minutes to Sugar Mountain (15 minutes/6 miles) for Skiing and Golf; Public tennis courts are located at Lees-McRae Athletic Complex (10 minutes/ 3.5 miles) and Village of Sugar Mountain (above); convenient also to Beech Mountain, that offers summer festivals & outstanding winter skiing.

Wildcat Lake is 3 miles away. At Wildcat Lake, you can swim, canoe, play volleyball, play on the playground, throw horseshoes, fish, and have a picnic. Historic Banner Elk offers dining, shops and a micro brewery -Flat Top Brewery- worth checking out. Banner Elk Winery is a must for tasting delicious wines. Buy a glass or bottle and take it outside, sit relaxingly among their fire pit, pond, or play horseshoes. Their live entertainment sets the perfect ambiance to enjoy a nice glass of wine.

There are a few antique shops to explore and add to your collections. Some of my favorites are "Those were the Days" and "Thelma's Things" on Hwy 184 in Banner Elk. "The Emporium, " across from one of two Mast general stores (630 West King St), in downtown Boone is another fun "junk shop" favorite.

The Historical Mast General Store in Valle Crucis (Hwy 194 off Hwy 105/ set your GPS to: 2918 Broadstone Rd, Banner Elk) or downtown Boone is a requirement when visiting the area. Mast General Store is like going back in time a 100 years to shop with creaking floorboards, front porch rocking chairs, and all. They have an entire room committed to favorite candies not easily found from yesteryear. More treasures include hiking and camping supplies and maps for the serious outdoorsmen, old fashioned toys, country gourmet foods, cast iron cookware, footwear for all walks of life, as well as jackets, hats, and gloves for the winter weather. If it's hot and sunny outside, please enjoy their old-fashioned ice cream stand out back. There is something for everyone.

Outdoor regional activities include zip-lining at Hawksnest, a spectacular hike on the Appalachian Trail. mountain climbing at Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns (caves) and Linville Falls (75 foot waterfall) , are must sees when coming to the mountains. Fish in one of many clear mountain streams, or horseback ride an old mountain trail, these are just one of many fun activities to explore. This area is a nature lover's dream.

Listed below are public golf courses and their proximity from the house: Village of Sugar Mountain-18 minutes/ 6.3 miles (4 star rating); Mountain Glen Golf Club-26 minutes/ 9 miles (3.5 stars); Boone Golf Club-38 minutes/ 21 miles (4 stars); and Red Tail Mountain (TN) 55 minutes/ 33 miles (4.5 stars.)

Other important information is town proximity if you would like to explore the area: Banner Elk-10 minutes/ 3.5 miles; Tynecastle Shoppes-16 minutes/ 6.9 miles; Linville-21 minutes/ 11 miles; Boone-34 minutes/ 20 miles; Blowing Rock-44 minutes/ 27 miles and Town of Beech Mountain-18 minutes/7.5 miles.
