Description

Welcome to Elk Knob Cabin!

Elk Knob Cabin is a secluded retreat located in a wonderfully scenic setting. Despite its remote location, it is only 15 minutes away from Boone. Located at the end of a mile-long drive up through private, wooded acreage, the cabin rests at an elevation of 4,200 feet, making it a great fit for those who appreciate serene mountain surroundings, privacy, and time away from a fast-paced life.

The home is equipped with fundamental amenities like HDTVs and a hot tub but truly focuses on removing oneself from a technological setting and enjoying the view and serenity of the location.

Just a few minutes away is Elk Knob State Park, featuring one of the park system's finest trails to the spectacular views from the 5,520 feet summit. Tweetsie Railroad, ski slopes, Grandfather Mountain, High Gravity Adventures, river rafting, and many other attractions are available to visit during your stay.

"Second time being there, love the cabin, we were a little late on seeing the leaves but we did get to see some along with some snow flurries early one morning. The view and the privacy never disappoint!"

"Magnificent view with seclusion. One of the best we have rented. Cabin was more than well stocked. Very well kept. Plenty of walking areas and trails we discovered. Next to a state park. Close enough to town and far enough for seclusion. Porch is huge with plenty enough rocking chairs. Nice fire pit that we used every night. Take note and do not ignore the AWD or 4x4 warnings about driveway. The driveway is well kept but is gravel. Gorgeous drive up it. We seen plenty of deer and owls and lots of birds and chipmunks."

"We stayed at the Elk Knob cabin for a week in late October 2021 and the experience was amazing. You ll find all the comfort that only a log cabin can provide, and the location is absolutely amazing. It is on a remote area which makes it even more special. Access and 4x4 is indeed something to consider if you are traveling in the winter season, but we had no problem at all in the fall. Everything was excellent and we loved to stay there. Definitely recommend it."

"My family of 4 just spent 8 wonderful days at Elk Knob Cabin. The cabin is very well equipped and extremely organized, which is a plus when you are married to a perfectionist. The light switches are labeled, which is helpful when you are looking to turn on a specific light. There is a binder with instructions on how to operate everything, which is another plus. The view is absolutely spectacular! There is a fire pit situated in the absolute perfect place to roast marshmallows as the sunsets. The hot tub as well is placed in the ultimate spot to view the sunset. I've rented many cabins and never have I wanted to return to one as much as this one. Everything in this cabin was well thought out with love and care. It was much appreciated. Elk Knob Cabin is by far the ultimate destination for your mountain experience."

"Elk Knob Cabin was very cozy, comfortable and well equipped. The views from the porch were spectacular and changed every morning. We enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it for anyone seeking relaxation and solitude. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking and sightseeing within a short driving distance. We saw Grandfather Mtn, Blowing Rock, hiked the Summit Trail at Elk Knob State Park, Moses Clay Manor, Linville Falls and Elk River Falls. All beautiful! When they say four wheel drive is recommended to reach the cabin, you should pay attention to that. We had no problems at all with a 4WD vehicle, but I would not want to attempt it without."

"Amazing cabin and is exactly as advertised. Gravel Road is on quite the incline, we had very little issues getting up on our FWD Buick Encore in September. Breathtaking views from everywhere in the cabin. Hot tub was clean and ready to go. Great fire pit and did I mention an amazing view. Your completely secluded on the top of a mountain and the Elk Knob Reserve is your back yard. It's great to be just minutes from Boone, which has anything you may need. The cabin has everything you need to feel at home. We Will defiantly be coming back !"

"Besides the drive up and how scary that was this was the prettiest place we've ever stayed! Everything is just beautiful and beautifully step up. The view is to die for and the cabin is so cozy! The hot tub and the view from the hot tub is amazing! We had such a wonderful time visiting towns near by and spending mornings and evenings at the cabin! We would definitely come back! But with a 44 truck next time. Even in the summer months it would make for an easier drive up the mountain."

"We loved this cabin! Probably the best view you can find! We wished the leaves would have been more colorful but Mother Nature didn't cooperate for us. The only negative is the road getting up to it. We did have trouble but made it after backing down several times and retrying but it was nerve wracking. Seems like the more people in the vehicle cause even front wheel drive cars to spin on the gravel. Once you arrive at the cabin, it is heavenly though. We enjoyed it tremendously!"

"The cabin is very remote. My wife and I were there four nights and did not see or hear another person. The views from the front porch are awesome. We were impressed with how neat and clean the cabin was. The kitchen was well equipped; there was even a croc pot and a toddler's sippy cup. The knives were sharp and easily sliced tomatoes. On the negative side there is very little out side space for young children to play. The mattresses were just ok. For safety I would suggest putting a runner or grip tape on the wooden stair steps. They can be very slippery in sock feet.
Thank you for your review. The Owner is putting a brand new box spring and mattress in the master bedroom this week! - Management"

The cabin is very well maintained and stocked with just about everything you could need! The views are amazing and the hot tub is right on point! The drive up is quite exhilarating but we had no trouble as we came in a four wheel drive. The weather was fantastic and cool at times. We absolutely love and appreciate this cabin and will very much return when possible! Thank you to the owners and to Carolina Cabin Rentals for a flawless vacation!"

"We stayed in this cabin for our honeymoon in January of last year, and it was amazing. We also met the owner as we left the property, and we knew it would be a special place for us to visit throughout the rest of our marriage. We were regularly warned and updated by Carolina Cabin Rentals that there was potential for a heavy snow storm when my wife and I were scheduled to return to Elk Knob Cabin this past weekend for our 1st Anniversary. Due to the icy slope, we were still unable to make it up to the cabin for the weekend. A representative actually called to check on our safety upon arrival, recommended a local towing service if we got stuck, and pointed us toward a nice local hotel when we were unable to make it up the mountain. It was absolutely fantastic service! Our cabin stay was non-refundable, and I still give their customer service 5 HUGE STARS and will be a repeat customer. We will be back to Elk Knob Cabin soon hopefully!"

We traveled with both adults and kids and all were happy and content. We spent most of our trip on the front porch enjoying the amazing view! Close to grocery stores and other attractions, although the road up is very steep and we were not aware of the one lane gravel road up the mountain to access the cabin. This is a fabulous cabin! We will stay again!"

"Cabin well worth the effort up the gravel mountain drive, but a car is not suitable for the current state of rocky road. Barely made it up the first night, so rented a Jeep Wrangler the next day, which was perfect considering all the rain made the road progressively worse in spots. The cabin itself is clean, very comfortable, and has a wonderful mountain view with a great front porch from which to enjoy it. Come prepared with the appropriate vehicle and it's perfection for some R&R. Thank you for your input! In the weeks prior to your stay we had a very unusual amount of heavy rain, which caused the road to wash out in places. We are happy to announce that the owners have since repaired the road, and the road is now in good condition!
