Description

Welcome to 4 Bears Lodge in Banner Elk!

This three bedroom home is the perfect retreat in the mountains. Located a short hike to the Banner Elk Winery and nestled in the trees, enjoy the year round views of the mountains and foliage. On the main level, you'll find the open-concept living, dining and kitchen, with a wall of windows to take in the views. The gas log fireplace turns on and off with a simple wall switch, creating a cozy environment. Comfortable seating surrounds the fireplace and flat screen TV. The home has Skybest for TV, including multiple ESPN channels. In the kitchen there is ample counter space for meal prep and both a Keurig and a standard coffeepot. The bar has seating for two to complement the dining table with seating for six. Two bedrooms are on the main level, and there is a full bathroom with a tub/shower combination and double vanity in the hall for access. One bedroom has a queen bed, the other has two twin beds. A full washer and dryer are off the hall on the main level.

Upstairs is the loft with a foosball table, seating, and views out the picture window. There is a king bedroom upstairs and a full bathroom featuring an oversized soaking tub, a shower, and double vanity. Air conditioning keeps the home cool even in July, not that many need it with the mountain breezes!

The deck wraps around from the side entrance to the back, and has a mainlined gas grill and dining table. On the deck is a newly installed hot tub for up to six overlooking the valley view. On the grounds below is a fire pit with stacked chairs under the deck.

Explore the area with a five minute drive to Banner Elk, or 15 minutes to the Mast General Store and Valle Crucis Community Park. Beech and Sugar Ski are each 15 minutes away.

"We absolutely loved the cabin! It was very cozy and perfect for our family. It was very convenient to Beech mountain and downtown Banner Elk. The place was incredibly clean! We loved all the amenities and the very soft towels! Such a wonderful place to stay. The only concern is the GPS didn't quite pinpoint the location. And we had to venture out on our own to find it. Thankfully additional directions were provided to us by the property management company."

"The town of Boone was a lovely place. The cabin was up in the hills with a lovely view. Driving up and down the mountains was an adventure in my manual drive sport car. I would give it 4 just for the driving experience. The GPS took us most of the way to cabin. But direction given thru email and agent to the cabin was excellent. Once there the cabin was as beautiful as the views. There were other cabins occupied by the local residents. But there was plenty of space to feel separated. Gravel road and driveway to the house just made it feel more rural. Everything was clean, operated and nicely decorated. Plenty of space for at least 6 people with a beautiful walkout deck. Plenty of activities and eateries in the area within 30 minutes. Would definitely return and recommend to others. (5 stars)"

"Beautiful property deep in the woods. very spacious and cozy home with a beautiful view of the mountains. not far from Elk Banner either. the hosts provided all the amenities you would need. I loved that the kitchen was already stocked with cooking tools. the fire pit was also a nice touch. the upstairs bed was very comfy (didn't use the other rooms). The fireplace was also a great touch and all you had to do was flip a switch to turn on. Great location not far from Grandfather Mountain and a lot of other great Blue Ridge Mountain attractions. I would stay again"

"We had a wonderful visit! The house was perfect for our family of four plus our dog. Plenty of space and my toddlers loved the foosball table and riding their scooters on the big porch. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, beds were comfy, and the bathrooms were plenty big for two people to share. One pointer for future visitors- even if it takes a few extra minutes, come in through downtown Banner Elk rather than the other side of the mountain! We learned that lesson the hard way and it was a very steep, winding road that even my husband who grew up in the mountains didn’t love driving on. Plus downtown Banner Elk is beautiful! Only complaint is both neighbors have 3 dogs each that were outside most of the time, and barked their heads off any time we were around. One neighbor brought their dogs in but the other did not… 6 barking dogs scared my toddlers quite a bit when we walked by. But I know there’s nothing the owners of this house can do about it! Just something to keep in mind if you plan to go for walks, getting too and from the house will be noisy lol."

"Perfect cabin nestled in the mountain side for a large family! So peaceful. Loved sitting on the porch at night watching the stars and listening to the sounds of nature. The cabin was immaculate. The decor is just lovely. Our children enjoyed counting the many decorative bears located around the cabin. We enjoyed the little cafes in downtown Banner Elk and visiting the little nearby mountain town with it's nostalgic general store. Our children enjoyed mining for gems and brought home several colorful gems they're hoping to make into jewelry. Looking forward to vacationing here again next fall! Oh, and the fall leaves were spectacular!"
