Welcome to Highland Mist – you will be so impressed with the unique “top of the world” views in this custom Banner Elk home you will find it difficult to leave. This large lodge is located on a lofty hill with 180-degree views into North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. No matter the season you visit, the bucolic scene includes rolling hills, high mountain peaks, and deep valleys that will simply delight and help you unwind. Simply put, nature’s bounty is your closest neighbor here in this special place.

This gorgeous, custom mountain cabin is certain to impress you, with its vast exposed beams, lofty ceilings, rustic trusses, and so many other elegant features and extra details especially designed for your comfort. From the moment you enter the door, you are inspired by its ambience of mountain style, complemented by the great room’s cathedral ceiling and uniquely refined lodge decor.

You’re our special guest here, so the great room warmly welcomes you, with plenty of fine leather furniture and over-stuffed seating, massive wood-burning stone fireplace, exposed logs, and large flat screen TV. Cooking will be a pleasure for you, not a duty, in this elegant chefs’ kitchen, complete with granite counters and large island with seating, and it includes all the modern implements for preparing delicious meals. Your group will gather to “break bread” and then stay to chat at the large wooden dining table with comfortable seating, lighted by the warm glow of the unique chandelier.

Most guests find themselves drawn outside to the spacious decks spanning the length of the lodge to view the mountains, an integral part of Highland Mist’s attraction. Gather on the upholstered, comfortable outdoor seating around the outside stone-faced fireplace on the large covered deck and share quality time with friends and family while basking in the fire’s glow. The large modern grill is the ideal spot for cooking tonight’s feast, and you can even dine al fresco, mountain style at the outdoor dining table.

Ready to unwind? Walk down the large hallway on the main level and find the spacious master bedroom, decorated with an outdoor theme and with large windows to wake up to the amazing view, or fall asleep with the stars. You will be delighted by the inviting king bed and private tiled bathroom with walk-in shower and separate tub.

No detail for your comfort has been spared in Highland Mist, with its fine furnishings, and many wonderful details. A loft with large windows to view the far away mountains provides plenty of comfortable seating , a perfect place to curl up with a good book. The two upstairs bedrooms both have their own full baths as well, with a king bed in one and two twins in the other.

The lower level family room will keep the fun coming, with flat-screen TV, pool table and foosball table. The fourth bedroom is also on this level, with handcrafted custom queen size log bed and there is also a queen sleeper sofa for the extra guest, and fourth full bath. Step outside and enjoy the deluxe hot tub with its picturesque views of the woods and multi-layered mountains, and the night’s deep darkness here will tempt you to bask in the shine of the nearby stars. On summer evenings, gather around the firepit and tell tall tales while roasting hot dogs and making s’mores.
