Very nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is extremely well done. All renters should be aware that there is no AC, which can be uncomfortable if the weather gets above 75 degrees. Also, there is no bath soap or shampoo so either bring your own or plan to get some when you stop at the grocery store to get food etc. The views are breathtaking! The rental is a very good value for the money.

The property was clean, well stocked and beautiful. The owner was responsive and easy to work with. We used this for a girls weekend but it would be great for family and friends - plenty of space for groups of people. The hot tub was great and views from the deck alone could have occupied us all day.

Beautiful, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed and comfortable cabin in a beautiful setting. Neat and very clean upon arrival. Long views over mountains are mesmerizing and relaxing. Elevation of approximately 4,400 feet = cool breezes. Gated community is a plus. We had a great stay.

Beautiful home, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Banner Elk. LongView is a beautiful home with lovely furnishings (loved both the leather sectionals). The kitchen is well equipped, and the grill is in good condition. Very comfortable beds and ample areas to hang out. Having smart tvs pleased my teenagers, as they were able to watch Netflix! The view is just amazing. We had some very warm days (hotter than normal for the area), and it got warm inside the house since there isn't AC. But, we weren't inside much during the day. Luckily, the evenings were cool and comfortable. We would love to come back in the fall to enjoy the gorgeous foliage.

The cabin was absolutely beautiful. The inside was very clean, and was equipped with most everything we needed. There was plenty of room for our family ,it worked out perfectly. The view from the porch outside was breathtaking.. our family went on walks in the area where we saw deer,birds,bunny’s and other wildlife. We enjoyed some family time hiking,visiting local winery’s ,and just enjoying the cabin. We truly made memories!

Beautiful home with lovely views.

  • 4 of 5

The home is beautifully decorated and has a wonderful view; however, it was missing curtesy shampoo, soaps and games. The beds were comfortable, but the bunk beds could use a larger blanket on them. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances, but it doesn’t have extra spices, condiments, coffee or tea, so come prepared. The hot tub is very refreshing!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you and your party in our home. Honestly, I am a little bit surprised by some of the comments and the rating. We provide a luxury $1/2 million home with a million dollar view!!! We provide all of the comforts of home with the furniture, beds, appliances, cooking utensils, etc. We also provide extra blankets and pillows in the closet of every bedroom. We don’t provide spices and condiments for sanitary and safety reasons. Also, if we provide spices, etc. people tend to pack them up and take them home when they leave. Regarding the games, we have provided those in the past but children ofter loose the pieces, compbine the pieces of all the games, etc. We just try to provide an excellent home with all the furnishings for a wonderful experienace! By the way, in our listing and the PDF we send out after the booking is complete, we specifically state what we provide in our home…therefore hopefully there should be no surprises!

LongView is in a great location. Just minutes from Banner Elk while at the same time perfectly located only a few miles from both Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain. Also, conveniently located near Wildcat Lake; one of the hidden treasures of the North Carolina High Country! The lake offers free swimming, fishing, canoeing, and picnicking! Just minutes away from the charming town of Banner Elk.


Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning fee $175 + Tax
Hot Tub Cleaning Fee $35 + Tax
Property Damage Protection $59
Administrative Fee $35 + Tax

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.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
