This little Blue Ridge town sits just outside of Boone, and while its population may be small, there’s no shortage of things to do in Banner Elk. If you’re thinking about booking a Banner Elk vacation rental, prepare for a blissful mountain experience during any season: summer visitors can hike, swim, fish, and go to outdoor concerts, while winter guests will love skiing at Sugar Mountain or Beech Mountain, both an easy drive away. The spring greenery and fall colors alike will blow you away. There’s really no wrong time to stay in a Banner Elk cabin rental!
Once you’ve settled in, head out to visit some of the town’s furriest locals at Apple Hill Alpaca Farm, or embark on a trail ride via Banner Elk Stables. If you haven’t been to spectacular Grandfather Mountain, it’s certainly a must-see for the area, including the Mile High Swinging Bridge. However you choose to spend your time in the Banner Elk area, you’ll be glad you chose a cozy cabin rental to call home while you’re here.
