Frequently Asked Questions


Where are the cabins located?

Our cabins are located 20 minutes from downtown Banner Elk, NC.

We are 8 minutes from the intersection of 194 and Rominger Road.

We do not disclose the exact location of our cabins until booking is confirmed

for security reasons.

We hope you understand!

Are the cabins secluded?

Yes, our cabins are secluded and private.


How far apart are the cabins from one another?

The cabins are approximately 100 yards apart; because of the topography and the heavily wooded lot you cannot see one cabin from the other.


In the winter months do I need 4-wheel drive?

One of the great experiences of winter in Banner Elk is the awesome snow.

We do not recommend venturing into the Banner Elk area

without 4-wheel drive

or chains in the winter months.

Bearclaw has widescreen TV’s and a bigger hot tub.


Are the fireplaces gas or log burning? Do you provide cut wood?

Our fireplaces are gas. However, both cabins have an outdoor fire ring. We do not provide cut fire wood, but there is plenty of fallen timber in the woods that you are welcome to gather.


Is the kitchen fully equipped?

Yes, our kitchens are fully equipped with everything you should need to cook any meal. We provide blenders, toasters, crock pots, soup pots, casserole dishes, etc. We like to have all the kitchen amenities there when we stay and we know you do too!


Do you provide towels and bed linens?

Yes, we do -- very nice towels and linens, we might add!


Are the grills propane or charcoal?

Our grills are propane.


Are the cabins “kid-friendly”?

We have really tried to provide a number of items in each cabin to entertain the “wee-ones”. For the teens, we provided an X-Box and movie selection. For the younger ones, we have children’s movies, games, books, and toys. Treehouse has Lincoln Logs and Bearclaw has Thomas the Tank Engine trains and tracks.
