Welcome to Elk Laurel!

Elk Laurel is the first home built in a 14-acre development with beautiful long-range views. Come explore the mountains while you enjoy the luxurious comfort of this elegantly finished log cabin.

This large family home boasts a huge wrap-around deck with a large hot tub, gas grill, and outdoor dining for 12. Enjoy the cool mountain evenings on the deck or sit on the bench surrounding the fire pit to roast marshmallows.

There are multiple areas inside so everyone can enjoy their own space while being together. The main level has an open floor plan with a well-stocked kitchen, a dining area with seating for 8, and a bar for 3. These adjoin the living area with the gas log fireplace and TV. Upstairs you will find a loft with a game table that seats 6 and a PS3 game system with an assortment of family-friendly games. Downstairs boasts a huge game room with a pool table, PS4 game system, a sleeper sofa, and comfortable chairs so you can enjoy the latest sports or movies on the large Smart TV. You will also find board games and books for all ages throughout the house. Do not forget to check out the garage, where you will find the ping pong table.

*Firewood available for purchase after booking. Please contact Carolina Cabin Rentals if interested.*

The 14-acre property is yours to explore. Although you may feel remote, Banner Elk is only 4 miles from the cabin, Valle Crucis is 5 miles away, and Boone is less than 30 minutes. Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain are both within 10 miles. Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls are also nearby.

Important Information
Elk Laurel is a large family home, and we ask that you respect the total number of occupants allowed. This is NOT a party house. Loud, boisterous events will not be tolerated, as the neighbors will contact the authorities. Thank you for your consideration as noise travels through the mountains easily.

Please Note: A few exterior cameras are monitoring the roadway for security reasons. They do not monitor any living spaces outside.

"This was our second year staying in this home. It is perfect for larger families or groups, plenty of room for everyone. The home is well stocked and clean. We love the fact that it is close to the slopes and shopping. They even cleared the driveway after the snow which made it much easier on the front wheel drive vehicles we had. The company sent prompt emails with directions and were quick to respond to any questions we had. Great cabin and great rental company!"

"Great cabin. Plenty of room for two extended families with kids. Even though the weather was unseasonably warm (so unfortunately no skiing), there were lots of activities - ping pong, video games, pool, hot tub, s'mores around the fire. Only thing that was annoying was that we could not get the gas fireplace to work. Even after watching the very thorough video tutorial, just could not make it work. It was rather warm, so no big deal. But would have been nice for ambiance."

"We really enjoyed our 3rd stay in this cabin...The fully furnished kitchen, the comfortable beds, the new fireplace, the hot tub, the gameroom, and the beautiful deck. It was very handy having the second fridge in garage. The hot tub could use a bit of attention as the water seemed a bit cloudy in an unsanitary way, and perhaps the chemicals could use some adjustment to make it cleaner. There was no cable box for the TV in the bedroom at the top of the stairs on the 1st right, and there was a very short power outage and we could never get the cable box in the living room to reset properly. We loved the view, the solitude, and really enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the rain, the birds, and watching the low clouds go through the mountain trees. All in all, it was a very beautiful stay with the exception of those few small details mentioned. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us. It was a wonderful way to celebrate my 78th birthday with my family."

"This vacation was a Christmas gift for our children and grandchildren. We are a family of 13. We enjoyed the cabin. The grandchildren aged 17 to 6 enjoyed the ping pong table. The three levels of The cabin provided plenty of options for everyone to be entertained. It snowed before we arrived so the cabin road and driveway were a little bit of a challenge but the rental agency provided emails with detailed recommendations for travel which we appreciated. Needless, to say the families loved Breech Mountain skiing and snowboarding!"

"Great place! Loved the view and atmosphere. However, the property has about 5 puzzles total to be put together. 4 of those 5 are missing pieces. One in particular is missing about 100 pieces from a 550 piece puzzle and no longer has a box or picture to go by. I would recommend getting some new puzzles to save future guests the torture of attempting to find puzzle pieces that don't exist for a puzzle without a picture. That being said, we had a great time! The whole puzzle thing didn't put a damper on the experience.:)"

"Thank you for the opportunity to take this survey. Overall, we enjoyed our time at Elk Laurel. This home is absolutely beautiful and is perfect for a large gathering. It is convenient to Banner Elk and is about a 30 minute drive to the blue ridge parkway. The bed was extremely comfortable and the large wrap around porch was beautiful. I chose this property because there was a photograph of a beautiful view of the mountains. I am a photographer and looked forward to capturing some beautiful sunrises or sunsets. If you are looking for a very large, private home...this is the one for you."

"This was the first time we tried a family gathering like this. The accommodations were great. Lots of amenities. The mountains were cool compared to where we came from so we were able to enjoy the outdoors. Really enjoyed the deck, the hot tub, the game tables when were weren't out exploring, hiking, swimming and fishing. Beds were comfortable, the place was roomy. The full size fridge was a bit small for our situation (12 people for almost a week) but we should have planned for that. Lots of memories created here."

Thankfully we didn't punch any holes in the screens thanks to the bar you installed, but I would have raised it an inch or two. Looking forward to doing this at the same time next year. Thank you.

Thank you for the wonderful review! The owners have worked hard to make sure that Elk Laurel remains a great property. They have added additional cookware, updated the basement area, added a new game system and table in the loft, and repainted where needed. They also recently added luggage racks, additional clothing hooks and replaced mattresses in the bedrooms. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope that you will return. -Management​​​​​​"

"This was a great, clean house for a weekend getaway. There was plenty of sleeping and entertaining space for 4 families with kids. The house was well quipped and well maintained. My only minor complaints were that I wish there was another full bathroom upstairs, the basement didn't seem as up to date as the rest of the house, and the towels smelled a little musty. However, we would definitely consider returning. Thanks for a fun weekend!

-Thank you so much for your feedback! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. The owners are happy to announce that they plan to update the basement after this coming ski season.

"Only problem was garden tub.... did not...could not use...not enough hot water wife was not happy (We made a special trip to during your stay to address the reported hot water failure. Elk Laurel has an on demand water heater that heats water as it is used. It does not run out. Our maintenance trip confirmed that the system was functioning as designed and provided hot water throughout tub fill. It was concluded that guest was using hot and cold water together resulting in lower temperature. Hot water consistently around 107 throughout the tub fill. We're disappointed that we failed to communicate the result of our maintenance visit and inform you to not add too much cold water and lower the temperature of the tub. We are open till 11: 00 PM daily, even during holiday weekends. Please DO call our office so we can assist you. -Mgt)
should have called about garden tub but it was holiday weekend i did pay a lot extra $$$$ and NO HOT WATER.... not enough hot water."
