Description

Welcome to Buena Vista!

Buena Vista is a newly-constructed, upscale mountain cabin set atop a private ridge near Banner Elk at an elevation of 4,200 feet. The cabin offers stunning long-range, layered year-round views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the numerous open-air decks and has amenities to keep the whole family entertained.

This home has an open floor plan, dual master bedrooms with private decks, hardwood floors, tongue-and-groove ceilings, an updated kitchen with stainless appliances, an induction cooktop, and above-and-below cabinet lighting.

The dining area can seat up to eight (8) people, with additional seating at the center island for two (2) more. Guests will enjoy an incredible view from the living room through the wall of windows. The living room features a newly installed natural stone, floor to ceiling, gas log fireplace, a wall-mounted HDTV, and a Home Max sound system.

Venture downstairs to the huge game room and movie area with a slate 9-foot pool table, games, and an entertainment system. The downstairs bedrooms also have HDTVs and a Nintendo Wii. The lower deck also features a jetted hot tub with overhead bistro lighting.

Fiber optic, high-speed internet means reliable internet service. All bedrooms and TVs also have Chromecasts installed so you can stream your favorite shows or movies.

The land around Buena Vista has marked and unmarked hiking and walking trails, and the 14-acre property is yours to explore. Although you may feel remote, Banner Elk is only four (4) miles from the cabin, Valle Crucis is only five (5) miles away, and Boone is less than half an hour. Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain are both within 10 miles. Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls are also nearby.

"Our experience at Buena Vista could simply not have been any better. Six brothers and sisters came from as far away as Las Vegas and New England and as close as Lenoir NC to reunite and enjoy one another. Some brought spouses and some did not. We laughed, reminisced and even cried together. The great room was perfect for games and full family meals. The area was peaceful, beautiful and we saw deer and even a black bear. The property was immaculate and inviting. Wonderful family memories were shared and created at Buena Vista this past week. Thank you."

We cooked everyday and the kitchen was well equipped. We loved all the nice appliances, did have to figure out how to use the induction stove, but once we did it was so easy to use. The location of the cabin was perfect, close to many attractions and hiking locations. Would definitely come back and recommend to our friends.

The pool table and video games prompted indoor fun, while the outdoors provided wonderful snow sledding conditions. We had a great time, hope to stay again soon."

"We booked Buena Vista for a last minute get away. The actual view is even better than the pictures online. The home is very comfortable and spacious and remote enough to feel private yet not a far drive from Banner Elk. The kitchen had everything we needed (except the kettle which had seen better days). The home was very clean and well maintained. We may book again for next year and go earlier to enjoy the peak of autumn foliage. We went Nov 1 which was well past the peak yet the views were still outstanding. Highly recommend for any time of year.
Thank you for your feedback! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. The owners are very attentive to their guest's needs, and have replaced the kettle, as well as all of the pots, pans, and appliances. We hope you come back to stay at Buena Vista soon!

"The pictures just cannot compare to what this actually looks like in real life. We were BLOWN AWAY by the layered mountain views through the huge glass windows. It looks like a painting! Every time we walked through the front door and saw the view, we couldn't help but smile with how beautiful it is. This house is at the top of the mountain - so it's very private, peaceful, and quiet, but still only 7 minutes to Banner Elk and restaurants and stores. The kids loved the hot tub and the pool table and the board games that were provided. There was TONS of space for everyone. Even our 1 year old baby, who normally needs constant attention, sat in the pack and play by the windows playing with his toys and looking out the window for hours without making a peep! The house was also well appointed with TV's in every room and a beautiful kitchen with everything we needed. The private decks were great and the property has fiber optic internet and TV, which was awesome since we work remote! We will DEFINITELY be coming back to Buena Vista again!"

The “younger” adults enjoyed time downstairs while the “elders” were able to sit by the fire with a glass of wine, read and relax. The dining room table was large enough to enjoy family meals as well as game nights. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. A roasting pan would be a welcomed addition. The beds were very comfortable! We will definitely return!"

"The cabin is absolutely beautiful with an amazing view. We enjoyed all the fall colors! The only thing is the internet was super slow and actually not usable with our IPad or computers. We had some work to do while we were there on vacation and we were unable to do it at the house. Other then that the home is gorgeous and large for a big family gathering!

Thank you for the feedback! We are sorry to hear that you had problems with the internet. The wind and weather in the mountains can cause internet service to be a challenge. We have now replaced the routers to minimize this issue in the future. We hope to see you again soon!

Cabin was very homey & comfortable. One suggestion would be to have another comfortable chair in the main living area. Road was in good traveling order. Close to surrounding areas for restaurants & shopping. Our family of 6 were very comfortable here with our own space. We would definitely stay at the Buena Vista again.
Thank you for your review. The new owners have worked hard to make sure that Buena Vista has everything needed for a wonderful vacation experience. A new grill was added as well as a new chair upstairs. They will be updating the basement bunk room soon and have plans to repaint the downstairs at the end of the ski season. -Management"

Would recommend for a family or couple who want to spoil themselves. Did not see one vehicle come by the entire 3 day stay. Last house on the path. There was a little snow/ice that remained on gravel path but it had been scraped and no problems driving on. They have a small CD/ipod player and DVD but theirs skipped or would not play the DVD I tried so possibly needs cleaning. Otherwise great quiet stay."

"Buena Vista was a perfect vacation spot for our long weekend in Boone. We were in town for our son's graduation from App State and commissioning as a 2LT in the Army. Had extended family visiting and wanted to be able to cook meals and enjoy the large groups company. The house was so comfortably furnished and we had plenty of space to spread out. It was just far enough away from the busy crowds in town for graduation, but still convenient for all the activities. The views were amazing!
