High in the North Carolina mountains is a custom built lodge that is unrivaled in quality craftsmanship, customization and luxurious amenities. Enjoy nearby activities and distant views with old-fashioned serenity and modern convenience. Welcome to The Sterling Lodge, a NC luxury vacation cabin rental representing a totally new experience for East Coast mountain living. Nestled in the Banner Elk, North Carolina, you are moments away from Grandfather Mountain, Beech Mountain, Linville Ridge, Elk River Club, Sugar Mountain, Boone, Valle Crucis and Blowing Rock areas.
The Sterling Lodge at Eagles Nest is where West Coast mountain living becomes reality in the East and where the loss of time means something other than jet lag. For the first time ever, the East Coast mountains have something that rivals the West. Come discover it for yourself while it is still a secret that this area is quickly becoming known as the “Aspen of the East.”
Built in 2007, this luxury cabin combines the best of old-world craftsmanship and modern amenities. Built entirely of locally indigenous woods and stone, the Sterling Lodge has 3,000 square feet of heated space, with more than 6,800 square feet under roof. Porches wrap around the entire home offering a 360-degree view from this location just 500 feet shy of the highest point in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC, where you can see three different states from this 5,000’ elevation.
Perhaps most unique is that these are three flat acres on a mountain top. However, other distinctions in this exceptional home include the fact that Sterling Lodge is 100% solid wood with not one sheet of drywall. Each room is constructed with a different wood - in fact, one of the rooms actually has paneling from the Old Banner Elk Inn. But we did not leave out the modern conveniences either, those you might find in a West Coast high-end mountain development, including the most modern of electronics, appliances, kitchen facilities, audio/visual equipment, and internet/communications capability. You can get away from it all and/or get away and stay fully connected.

Thanks for a wonderful time. Beautiful place- Robby and Brenda, Posted: 02/19/2016
We had an amazing stay at this spectacular property. The views are breathtaking. Photos do not do it justice. It is absolute perfection. There is so much detail in the furnishings and decor. It has every amenity you can think of. Even though it is massive, it is cozy and comfortable. Wonderful job by the folks at Blue Ridge. They are very professional and provide excellent service. There was a winter storm during our stay and they stayed in touch with us and made us feel safe and secure. Thank you for a vacation we will never forget. We can not wait to visit again.- Ernest, Posted: 02/06/2017
We have been to this area over the last several years and we have visited Sterling Lodge twice in the last 6 months. To say it is a very special place is an understatement. The beauty of just looking out and seeing the mountains cannot be described. The home is perfect for a family gathering or to spend time with friends but the property cannot be compared with anything we have seen thus far. We have been there with both family and friends and will be back as soon as we can get back.- Susan, Posted: 03/24/2017
Views are second to none.- Steve, Posted: 05/31/2019

Great experience! Blue Ridge Mountain Rental provided an incredible little weekend get-away. The rental property exceeded expectations as did the service and communication from BRM Rentals. We will definitely use them for all future rentals.- Christopher, Posted: 11/13/2019
