Welcome to Fiddlehead, a 20 acre mountain retreat featuring 2 homes, The Lodge and The Treehouse. The Lodge at Fiddlehead is a rustic log home on a private estate in Banner Elk, NC.  A 2 home/20 acre mountain retreat, the original Eagles Nest home sits just above (now simply referred to as “the Treehouse”).  It was the model and inspiration for The Lodges at Eagles Nest - a world-renowned 3,000+ acre resort widely considered the most unique private mountain community in The Blue Ridge Mountains.

The perfect mountain homestead, The Lodge at Fiddlehead features 3 bedrooms/3 baths, with an indoor wood-burning stone fireplace, vaulted rafter ceilings, steam shower, master bedroom on main level with it’s own living room with stone fireplace, a kitchen open to the richly decorated living and dining area, large deck and outdoor dining area, 6 person hot tub, fire pit and some of the best sunset views Banner Elk has to offer! The home overlooks a lush pasture, barn and fruit trees that make up this one of a kind mountain vacation rental.

An ideal fit for families of all shapes and sizes, the Fiddlehead estate comes complete with hiking trails, a lovely trout pond perfect for fishing on those lazy summer days, a mountain stream to play in, a sledding and tubing hill for winter fun and plenty of outdoor space everyone can enjoy!  The homes overlook a lush pasture, barn, and fruit trees that make up this unique mountain vacation rental. Manicured landscaping and flowers in Spring and Summer, brilliant multi-colored leaves in the Fall, and tranquil snow cover in the Winter are a true pleasure to observe. This picturesque mountain escape features all that the NC High Country has to offer without ever having to leave the property.

In addition to all this wonderful home has to offer, Fiddlehead is a LGBTQ+ friendly haven and has been mindfully crafted to be as eco-friendly and sustainable as possible. 

Fiddlehead offers the peace and seclusion you desire, while still being only minutes from the charming town of Banner Elk.  In Banner Elk, you'll find a mountain playground like no other. Here, each season brings with it something spectacular. The springtime is ablaze with wildflowers, the summers are cool and inviting, fall's foliage is absolutely stunning, and the snows of winter transform these mountains into a picturesque winter wonderland.  In addition, the nearby towns of Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis and Boone, home to Appalachian State University, add to the unique flavor and sophisticated country charm of the area.  Call today to secure this property for your next Blue Ridge Mountain vacation!
