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.

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.

Great Mountain Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with great views. The house has wi-fi and a nice game room which made the kids happy. The house came with firewood and we enjoyed having a real fire during our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. It's location was convenient for skiing and restaurants. I highly recommend this home.

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.)
