Welcome to Fiddlehead, a 20 acre mountain retreat featuring 2 homes, The Lodge and The Treehouse. The Treehouse at Fiddlehead is an authentic tree top log cabin on a private estate adjacent to The Lodge at Fiddlehead. 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.


Perched just above and connected by a wooden boardwalk to the Lodge at Fiddlehead, The Treehouse overlooks a lush pasture, barn, horses, apple and pear trees, and some of the best sunset views Banner Elk has to offer! The Treehouse offers 3 king-sized beds, 2 full baths and a kitchenette with rustic mountain charm. Perfect for couples on a romantic getaway, the king-sized master bed is open to the main living area and the master bath has a large soaking tub for relaxing after a full day of fun. Upstairs is an open loft overlooking the main level of the home, with its own private balcony. There is also a yoga room in the lower level of the home.  The Treehouse at Fiddlehead offers abundant outdoor living and deck space looking out on gorgeous mountain views.

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 estate 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!
