About the property

4/3 sleeps 10. 3+ acres on mountain ridge with no neighbors in sight.

After driving past the apple barn, covered bridge, and waterfall, the creek lined road reveals breathtaking, soul renewing views. Keep driving up into the sky because the High Five is nestled in the trees at an elevation of 3900 feet. You have arrived at heaven on earth! The wrap around porch, hammock and unlimited view welcomes you into our NEW 3 floor cabin. The main floor includes the living room with gas fire place, master suite, dining and kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances and granite counters. Upstairs we have an open light filled loft and a luxurious master suite with king size bed, sitting area, 32 inch television, and a claw foot bath tub. The walk out ground floor has two more bedrooms (queen bed and four twins), a family room with 60 inch tv, fireplace, full bath and 7 person hot tub on the deck. The bunk room has 4 twins, a cozy loft play area and tv. Each bunk is designed to be a cozy bear's lair with mini windows and reading lights. If you enjoyed forts as a kid, it is a dream come true! We are also fully stocked with games and toys for both boys and girls. Two to three families are able to enjoy each other's company and yet all have private quiet space as well.

About Tara M.

We are a family of five that LOVES the Blue Ridge Mountains and everything they have to offer. The cabin has been a dream come true and keeps giving us the most cherished memories. We wish to share the magic of High Five. Come make magical family memories too.

Tara M. purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Tara M. chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We have vacationed in the area for many years. After exploring one day, we drove as high as the road would take us and came to the location where we built High Five. The air was fresh, the trees were rustling and our eyes were in disbelief of the natural beauty before us.

What makes this cabin unique

High Five is wonderfully private, beautiful piece of earth that renews my soul every time. Unique custom layout designed by owner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to your cabin. We had such a good time. It was even more beautiful than I could have imagined and I am planning on being a regular visitor to your High Five Cabin.

We loved everything about it! Location was great. Loved having to pass a little farm with lots of animals. (the kids really enjoyed that). The view and the beautifully decorated cabin was amazing! We loved your attention to detail down to the Berkshire blankets on the beds (which by the way I am getting one!)lol.

You have truly thought of every detail and it shows! Thank you for your attention to detail while working with us and your above and beyond attitude. We will be back.

Perfect place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable and very clean home! The home is basically on the top of a mountain, we couldn't see any other homes nearby while we used the hot tub and relaxed on the expansive porch. Lots of new comfortable and large outdoor furniture, that's hard to find with vacation rental homes. My son and nephews (ages 10, 8, and 5) all enjoyed the kids bunk room on the bottom floor - it connects to another bedroom through a jack-n-jill bath, perfect for when young kids need their parents at bedtime. The kitchen had more than we needed to cook our meals. Both fireplaces worked perfectly during our stay in the Springtime. Extremely easy rental process with the owner, she was awesome at reaching out to me first and making sure I arrived ok - better than a 5-star hotel! Thanks Tara, we hope to be back next year or sooner.

Quiet, comfortable and beautiful home and scenery.

The view is beautiful. We so enjoyed laying in the hammock on the front porch watching the fire flies at night. Great home for a family getaway. Ample living, playing spaces.

"The Great Escape"

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 2 kids stayed at High Five the week after new years. The drive to the top of the mountain and the views were incredible. The house is immaculate and well stocked (not your typical rental). The the kids had a blast on the bunk beds!!! Ski resorts, tubing, a winery, and great restaurants are just 10-15 minutes drive. If you are looking for a "Great Escape" from life, want to re-charge or, re-connect with the family .... this is the place. We'll definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have your family. Don't forget about all of the cool summer activities: whitewater rafting, hiking, fishing, biking, rock climbing, Music in the Park, shopping... The best part is the cool temp all summer long (avg 75 high). Come again!

Beautiful home! Gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

The 3 bedrooms and bunk room were comfortable for our family of 6 adults and 2 children. Spacious downstairs den was roomy enough for all of us to watch football! Furnishings and amenities made you feel like you were at home. Owners were easy to get in touch with and wanted to make sure we had what was needed.

Gorgeous views. Comfy house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at high five over Labor Day weekend. Our family of just 5. The kids loved the bunk room, hammock and big tv. Although the drive up takes some time you get amazing views and a great location to all kinds of activities and restaurants. We loved our relaxing weekend. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable! We would definately recommend it and come back.

New home with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, well-appointed new home with sensational sunrise views (you'll want to wake up early every day to see it) is easily accessed from both the Valle Cruces and Foscoe sides thus putting the property in great proximity to all that the NC High Country has to offer! After the full day of hiking at nearby Grandfather Mtn., we were happy to be able to soak our weary bodies in the large hot tub overlooking the mountain range we had just hiked! Wonderful new kitchen appliances make for enjoyable, langerous mornings cooking huge breakfasts in preparation for the long days of adventures that await you in nearby Julian Price Memorial Park or the swimming holes thatinclude Twisting Falls and Hebron Falls. Good restaurants in nearby Banner Elk are also covieniently located to the sensational property as well. Can't wait to return!
