About the property

Three bedroom, Three and 1/2 bathroom located in Banner Elk NC

Fantastic family getaway with inspiring views, game room with air hockey, foosball and ping pong tables, outdoor fire pit, hot tub, man cave with pool table, darts and poker table, gas fireplace, central AC, 5 smart TV's, lawn games and more. Minutes from the Banner Elk winery, this three bedroom (plus two additional sleeping areas) home sleeps up to twelve with three queens, four twins and queen sleeper.

Boulder Ridge Mountain vistas, modern conveniences, amenities galore - no detail has been overlooked inside or out for Boulder Ridge. Located just past the Banner Elk Winery, this large vacation home offers peace, tranquility and inspiration in a setting that is still convenient to area attractions and slopes. Rocky Knob is a private, gated community nestled amid ninety acres of rhododendron, forests, and amazing views, plus five small parks and hiking trails, at an average elevation of over 4700 feet.

Before even arriving at the home, guests enjoy one of the best panoramic vistas in the High Country as they wind up the gravel lane to the home, as well as sightings of deer, turkeys, and other "locals." The stately property welcomes you when you arrive with a covered porch that wraps around all four sides of the home, and rocking chairs are sometimes enjoyed prior to even entering Boulder Ridge! Inside, enjoy the natural light that pours in through the large windows, and the classic furnishings that await you. The living area has a cozy gas fireplace, and is open to the kitchen and dining areas, so the family can gather in three different areas yet still remain close enough to interact together. Once you settle in on the plush sofa or armchairs, you may be inclined to stay there for sometime - but why not step onto the back deck, and instead choose to "sit a spell" on the swing, the best spot to enjoy the long range view.

Downstairs, family time is happily spent enjoying the game room, which includes an air hockey table, foosball table, ping pong table and 52" smart television. Kids, not to worry, if your parents are cramping your style, just send them upstairs to the Man Cave! Here they can enjoy their own 50" flat screen, as well as a pool table and card table - enough to keep them occupied for several hours!

With sleeping areas spread over three levels, there is room for all to find their own space at bedtime. The master bedroom is located on the main level, and features a queen bed, smart TV, and spacious master bath with walk-in shower, large jetted tub and two vanities. Upstairs, find two more generously sized bedrooms with queen beds - these share a Jack and Jill style bathroom. There is also a small bunkroom for the kids, with two twins and a couple of large, fuzzy friends waiting to snuggle with them, and an additional full bathroom. Finally, the lower level game room also features a twin bunk bed, plus a queen sleeper sofa - a favorite spot for the teens.

A highlight of mountain evenings is time spent around the fire, and few homes offer a more comfortable firepit area than Boulder Ridge. Take in the view, count the stars or tell a few tall tales while roasting some marshmallows - or perhaps the fresh mountain trout you caught that day - over the fire. If you need to walk it off, be sure to explore the parks and trails throughout Rocky Knob - offering inspiring vistas and wooded glades to enjoy.

Best of all, this home is just five miles from the historic downtown area of Banner Elk, or less than ten to Valle Crucis via the Scenic Byway. Winter visitors also enjoy the close proximity to the slopes of either Beech Mountain or Sugar Mountain, and wine lovers - you are a mere 3.5 miles from the Banner Elk Winery!

BRVC is happy to spoil you with the convenience of a stocked pantry and refrigerator upon request, as well as make other arrangements for your trip. Visit us in the High Country and get a taste of upscale mountain living at its best. Convenient to the Banner Elk Winery, historic downtown Banner Elk, Valle Crucis, Beech Mountain, Sugar Mountain and much more, Boulder Ridge will welcome you to the mountains with style and grace.

Boulder Ridge has paved access for all but the last mile - this home requires 4wd and chains during inclement winter weather.

Depending on the home, 4WD, chains or sometimes both may be required when visiting the mountains in winter. Access to this home may not be suitable for vehicles with rear wheel drive, limited ground clearance, or motorcycles even during summer months. We are happy to help you find the home with the access you are most comfortable with, any time of year!

Boulder Ridge was the perfect home for our extended family's long weekend. Everything was in perfect working order for us, the home was immaculately cleaned and chock-full of thoughtful amenities. Wonderful stay, can't wait to return.
