Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Banner Elk - A 'Peace' of Heaven Log Cabin

A serene mountain log cabin loaded with luxury as well as end of years specials!

At my home, A 'Peace' of Heaven, I want every guest to feel like they are at home. You will find every luxury of your own house here at my cabin - a fully stocked kitchen, a laundry set up with complimentary detergent and supplies, a master bedroom, bathroom, and guest room on the main floor; in addition to a loft (with pull out sofa) and large bedroom on the top floor, complete with plenty of plush blankets and pillows for cold nights! My home sleeps 11 comfortably in beds, with room for any air mattresses you may require.

I want to make sure that here in my home you have every amenity and luxury that you have in your own home. Between the beautiful kitchen and gorgeous stone fireplace, you will find a large dining table that can seat up to 8 guests. In the kitchen you will find endless supplies for cooking wonderful home cooked meals for your friends and family. All throughout the house there are plenty of books if you like to just sit outside and read while soaking up some sun and checking out the one of a kind view.

The main floor boasts an incredible view of Grandfather Mountain during the day time - with windows from the floor all the way to the rooftop, you will find yourself staring at the awe of mother nature - whether it be from a comfortable recliner in the living room or a rocking chair on the wrap around deck. The outside area is fully furnished, and the wrap around deck is an incredible place to just sit back and take in the view. With rocking chairs, tables, and dining areas, you may find yourself spending more time outside than inside on your vacation!

The loft is a great area for kids, with its pull out sleeper sofa and plush pillows. There is also a chest full of games in the loft! Its got all the classics like Candyland, Monopoly, and Trivial Pursuit, and will keep you and your family entertained for hours! The bedroom beside the loft features a bunk bed with a full size bed on bottom and a twin size bed on top. Beside the bunk beds there is a huge, queen sized bed with a wonderful pillow top mattress cover. Also in this room, a window-nook overlooking the outdoor dining area - perfect for gazing at the view from the top floor!

The master bedroom downstairs features another queen sized bed as well as its own flatscreen TV. The guest room beside it features two twin sized beds - these two bedrooms are connected by the master bathroom, an incredible stone tiled walk in shower/tub decorates this bathroom.

Here at A 'Peace' of Heaven, relaxation is the vibe, and you will most definitely leave here feeling more centered and rested. I would encourage all my guests to check out all that the local area has to offer. There are endless activities and I will happily recommend activities for you and your friends and family, just contact me!

Cleaning Fee: $125 provides all guests with linens, towels, and laundry supplies.

About Barbara York

Hi, my name is Barbara and I am a retired elementary school teacher from Burlington, NC where I taught for 23 years. I currently work at a local veterinary clinic which I love! I am blessed to have this beautiful home and I want to share it with you! I love to spend time with my family, be involved with my church, travel, read, shop in quaint little towns, go antiquing and spend time with my wonderful friends.

Barbara York purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Barbara York chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

My father bought this property in 1968 and I grew up coming up here with my parents for weekends in what my father referred to as 'God's Country'. We had a mobile home on this site for years and would come up, and many times, invite family and friends to come with us. After retirement I decided to build a log home on this land which was completed in November 2009. I then moved to the great NC mountains and became a local!

What makes this cabin unique

I am so blessed to have this home, I mean not many people can get up every morning and stare into the face of the spectacular Grandfather Mountain while drinking their coffee! My home is centrally located around Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk and Valle Cruise. You can get to any of those towns in 30 minutes or less. There are so many wonderful opportunities for having fun in my area such as shopping in the quaint boutiques in Blowing Rock, people watching in their wonderful Main Street park while eating yummy ice cream from Kilwin's Chocolates and Ice Cream. You can also walk across the famous mile high swinging bridge on Grandfather Mountain and visit their fun little zoo to see the bears. Go and drink an old fashioned bottled Coke and eat a Moonpie on the back porch of the original Mast Store while listening to live blue grass music. Go hiking on one of the hundreds of trails in the High Country or go whitewater rafting or tubing on the Watauga or New Rivers. In the winter you can go skiing or snow tubing on one of our 4 terrific ski slopes. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in one of our fabulous High Country restaurants. There are too many things for me to name here, but I will have a guest book for you to get more ideas for mountain adventures and directions on how to get to them. After your busy day, you can come back home and relax on the deck while gazing at the thousands of stars and the silhouette of Grandfather across the sky or come on inside and sit by the fire! Just make yourself at home!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our two families enjoyed a great summer weekend getaway. The home had great views,and a nice porch. The home was very clean, and the kitchen had all we needed to cook. It is close to many things to do in the area.

Magestic, clean, comfortable, and great communication

  • 5 of 5

I booked Barbara's house 11 months in advance for our college reunion knowing I had found the perfect place. Based on my friends reaction when we arrived, I did! We had a great experience - top to bottom- and I am fortunate to live in Charlotte that I will look her up again. Thank you! Mary Buwick

Beautiful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A Peace of Heaven lives up to its name and pictures. The cabin was beautiful, spacious, and very comfortable. The wrap around deck, which faced Grandfather Mountain, was spectacular. Barbara, the owner, was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and activities. Our family loved our stay.

This house is everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely wonderful!! It is clean, the views are serene and amazing, the communication was flawless and the owner was incredibly accommodating. I have 3 children 6 and under plus we took my parents who are 65+. The house easily accommodated everyones needs. the pictures are 100% accurate in their depiction. My husband was VERY nervous about the owner living on the bottom floor but we never even knew it once we arrived. There is a separate entrance and we had complete privacy. Having said that, she did put out a lovely welcome basket with local jam when we arrived along with a handwritten note- a wonderful personal touch. Can't recommend this place enough. It really is everything (and has everything too!!)

beauty in the blue ridge mountains

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? Three generations of my family spent the weekend in this wonderful home. The views are amazing! We didn't hear anything but the birds outside of the house. While it rained, we did enjoy ourselves in the cabin sitting by the fire, making hot chocolate, and playing some of the board games that were available in the cabin. If you need to be outside, sit outside the master suite and just take it all in. By the way, there was adequate wi-fi in the home for us to watch movies on our devices late at night. The home was close enough to Grandfather Mountain and downtown Blowing Rock, which is where we were most of the daytime. Grandfather Mountain was partially closed as the winds were too strong, so be sure to check it out on their webpage before you leave for the day. The home is obviously kept in great condition and was clean on arrival. Although the bunk beds are better for smaller kids, we were able to fit our family quite easily in the three bedrooms. The kitchen is well-stocked, so don't worry about bringing everything with you. It was a great stay for us when we needed to unwind and just relax. Hope you like it as much as we did.

Surprise birthday trip

  • 5 of 5

I chose this property last minute for a surpise trip for my husbands birthday. Barbara was quick to respond and help with accommodating me and my surpise. Beautiful cabin, amazing detail, and breath taking view. We will be returning and have told many friends about it as well.

While visiting my home, you are centrally located to many wonderful mountain attractions. You can visit Grandfather Mountain with the famous Mile High Swinging Bridge and its wild animal zoo. The famous Tweetsie Railroad is less than 30 minutes away. Another place you must visit is Mast General Store with 2 locations in Valle Cruise (about 15 minutes away) and another location in the town of Boone, I love to go on Saturday and Sunday afternoons to the Mast Store location in Valle Cruise and sit in a rocking chair on their back porch and listen to live Blue Grass music! There are also several places in the area where you can book a white water rafting or tubing trip down the Watauga or New Rivers. About a mile from my house, you can book flyfishing tours and catch some good ole mountain trout! Shopping is wonderful at the quaint local shops in both Boone and Blowing Rock and their is a Tanger Outlet between the 2 towns! There are lots of wonderful restaurants in the area with great food and some with exquisite views of the Blue Ridge. Almost year around, there are festivals going on nearby like the famous Wooly Worm Festival in Banner Elk where you can race your very own wooly worm and possibly win $1000 if you have the winning worm! There is also Art in the Park held each month from April - October in Blowing Rock which is a wonderful place to shop for beautiful crafts and art. In the winter there is nearby skiing and tubing opportunities at Beech, Sugar, Appalachian and Hawksnest Mountains. There is always something fun to do and see in this area and my home is centrally located to all of it!
