Our family visited Banner Elk for the second time and it was better than before. Our stay in this gorgeous home was so much better than we expected. The home is welcoming, comfortable, and very spacious. The views from the back patio are serene and private. Our sons loved the upstairs area with the trundle and the cozy nook for hanging out. This home is situated within minutes from Sugar and Beech Mountains. We enjoyed skiing and tubing at the mountains. Our trip to Grandfather Mountain was amazing with the spectacular mountain views and beautiful nature trails. Dawn and Harry recommended several local restaurants that were fantastic. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable. We have rented vacation homes through VRBO for over 15 years and this was an outstanding experience.
