The Four Bears Lodge

This beautiful 1900 square-foot home is 6 minutes from downtown Banner Elk. Enjoy the gorgeous view of the mountains and a pond from the huge deck while you grill out on the Weber gas grill. Relax on the leather sofa and enjoy a fire in the stone fireplace (gas). Watch a movie on the 40" flat screen TV with full cable service and a DVD player. Walk down the street and hike along a great creek with several little waterfalls.

Downstairs, this home has two bedrooms, one with two twin beds and one with a full bed, a full bathroom with tub and shower, a fully stocked kitchen, and a large Living Room/Dining room. Two sliding doors open out to the huge deck. Upstairs is a loft with a full-sized futon (very comfy) the master bedroom with a queen bed, and a full bath with an oversized tub and separate shower. There is another 32" flat screen TV with a Sony Playstation 2 including several games in the loft area.

Wi-Fi internet service is available as well and in free.

Close by you will find the three ski/golf areas, Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain, and Hawks Nest all within 15 minutes, and the Banner Elk Winery is 1 mile down the road. Blowing Rock and Boone are both about a 25 minute drive.

Sorry no pets please.

About The Owner

Tom moved to Raleigh, NC from Michigan in 1996 and fell in love with the mountains as a vacation spot. Visited often and then finally bought a condo at Sugar Mountain. Then upgraded to a condo at Hawksnest and finally built my dream home..the 4 Bears Lodge.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Blue Ridge Mountains

I love Banner Elk because it is close to everything the mountains have to offer. I am 1 mile to a nice Winery (you can walk), 6 min. to Banner Elk shopping and restaurants, and within about 15 min. of Sugar and Beech mtn. skiing and golf.

What makes this house unique

Everyone loves this home and it's location. You don't need 4 wheel drive in the winter as the road is not steep and is also great for taking a walk. The open floor plan is great for entertaining, the stone fireplace is great looking and cozy, the kids can be upstairs playing Playstation in the loft or in the flat front yard playing football. There is a great little creek just down the road to hike along. For me, laying in the hammock and looking at the view is about as relaxing as it gets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family really enjoyed our stay in Banner Elk. Your home was beautiful, the views great, and the location was perfect for us to explore the area. We bought a Christmas tree and had a wonderful day! We will be back next year

Mountain Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. There were a couple of issues. If you arrived after dark this place is very difficult to find. Make sure you arrive before dark. The only other issue we had was that the cable was out. We tried to call the cable company and they were unable to resolve the issue. Oh well...

Great Stay for Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with friends for a ski weekend and really enjoyed it. There were seven of us and the house fit us perfectly. Note that it may be a little noisy if people are awake for someone sleeping on the futon in the loft as it overlooks the living area/kitchen. The decor and house were beautiful and we loved the large TV for watching the NFL playoffs! We were 15-20 min from Ski Beech and 15 min from Sugar Mountain and enjoyed both. There is a Food Lion right by Sugar that was very convenient for stocking groceries. We also visited Flat Top Brewery near the entrance to the neighborhood and really enjoyed their local beers. I would highly recommend staying at 4 Bears.

4 Bear's Lodge is a great getaway spot!

  • 4 of 5

We were on a girl's getaway for a couple of days and we really enjoyed enjoyed our time at the house. The house was spotless and every room was clean and fresh. It was great to have linens provided too. It is a bit of a drive back into Boone and Blowing Rock but there are great restaurants in Banner Elk. Also, it is easy to get to Grandfather Winery and a very close neighbor to Banner Elk Winery. There were 6 of us at the house and it would have been nice if there was at least 1 more chair for seating in the living area. Other than that, it was a wonderful home with a beautiful view!
