The Four Bears Lodge

This beautiful 1900 square-foot home is 6 minutes from downtown Banner Elk, and less than 15 min. from Sugar and Beech Mtns. 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 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.

Owner purchased this House in 2006

Why Owner chose Shawneehaw

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.

                                                        Nice house. Owner was easy to work with!

                                                        Kimberly O.

                                                        Booked this at the last minute and the owner was very helpful in getting it setup for me. Didn't spend much time at the house since my kids and I were skiing and visiting friends but when we were there, it was comfortable. Definitely is a good size house that could have fit way more than the 3 of us!

                                                        For those that warned about how difficult the house is to find at night, they were right!!! My best advice is that when you see 2 mailboxes (neither of which is the address of the house), turn left there! If one of the mailboxes had the address number on them, I would have known but they don't. Good luck and enjoy!

                                                        So glad you enjoyed your stay!

                                                        Based on your feedback I am now providing specific directions for arriving in the dark to all guests.

                                                        I look forward to hosting your next trip to Banner Elk

                                                        Great stay for short ski weekend

                                                        Caroline J.

                                                        Lovely house with great views. Very clean and nice. Perfect for two families with three kids total.

                                                        Just a couple of improvements...water pressure was not good but not sure if that’s a mountain thing, and water in upstairs shower would not regulate. Either very very hot or off. And lockbox was frozen when we got here. Maybe move to where weather wouldn’t effect it? And we couldn’t get the fireplace to work.

                                                        All in all a great stay at a great price!!!!!

                                                        Enjoyed our stay

                                                        Liliana A.

                                                        We enjoyed staying at your house over the holidays. Very conveniently located between both ski areas. We spent a few days on Beech Mountain and a few at Ski Sugar. The house was clean and it's exactly what's pictured. We really enjoyed walking down to the pond and seeing all the deer. The fireplace was cozy. I reached out to Tom and he got back to me quickly. The only thing I would recommend is to get some new pans. Thank you again.

                                                        Beautiful house

                                                        Rainee J.

                                                        It is very difficult to find the house in the dark upon first arrival.

                                                        The place was exactly (or better) as advertised

                                                        JOSEPH G.

                                                        We arrived in Banner Elk and found that we had left the address at home. A quick call to the property owner and he gave us great directions to the place. Nicely furnished and very clean.

                                                        What we enjoyed most was watching the deer under the apple trees in the yard.
