Bear Cub Cabin

Built in 1921, this amazing cabin has been the home to college professors, teachers, doctors, and missionaries.

Located just off the Lees McRae college campus, the cabin is central to everything in Banner Elk and within easy walking distance to any of the businesses and events in downtown.

The cabin has been lovingly cared for and retains all of its rustic charm.

The living room features a 42 in. flat screen TV with cable, DVD player and movies, original stone fireplace, and plenty of comfortable seating.

The dining room has seating for 6 and the kitchen offers a dishwasher, flat top stove, microwave, toaster and Keurig coffee maker.

The Master Bedroom has a queen size bed, 36 in. TV with cable, a spacious sitting area and roomy closets. The bath features new cabinet style sink, updated shower stall and new linens.

Upstairs you will find 3 guest bedrooms, 2 with queen size beds and 1 with 2 twin size beds. The bedroom with twin beds has a TV with DVD player. The bathroom features the original sink, cast iron bathtub with new shower head.

As you can see from the photos, the cabin has been cared for and tastefully decorated and furnished.

Just off the dining room is the huge deck, overlooking the woods and the path to the Elk River. A portion of the deck is covered and has big comfy chairs and a table. On the open end of the deck is a picnic table. We also have extra seating and a big gas grill.

Below the deck you will find an awesome fire pit and tire swing.
