The Outside Inn at The Lodges at Eagles Nest! This stunning home is perched at nearly 5,000 ft. of elevation on a very secluded 5+ acre homesite and looks out on to 180 degree panoramic mountain views, featuring sunrises over Grandfather Mountain and sunsets over Roan Mountain. The Outside Inn is the embodiment of sophisticated architecture paired with refined interior design. Put simply, this entire property is a pure work of art unto itself. The owners spent nearly a year carefully selecting the land, which offered the exact combination of views, elevation, privacy and space they wanted. They then engaged with multiple architects to painstakingly create a home design that was both extraordinary looking from the outside, yet functional and comfortable on the inside.
The reclaimed wood and stone materials were selected to reflect a seamless blend of authentic Appalachian construction, while the simple, clean lines of the interiors sublimely give way to an abundance of windows looking out to the exquisite vistas. The landscape design, weaving in and out through boulders as old as time itself, was crafted to cultivate an eternal and enduring sense of having always been there. The net result is a refreshing sensation of being immersed in the hearty mountain textures and stirring landscape the home offers from nearly every inch of the indoor and outdoor living space. This home features an outdoor wood burning fireplace. Of course this rugged authenticity is accompanied by the opulent furnishings, fine artwork and luxury appliances one would expect from a home of this caliber. All within the awe-inspiring surroundings, and with access to the exciting amenities, of the most exceptional gated community available for luxury home rentals in The Blue Ridge Mountains. Come experience a truly "next level" North Carolina mountain vacation at The Outside Inn at The Lodges at Eagles Nest in Banner Elk.
