June 19, 2018

Banner Elk is such a great mountain town! That log cabin is perfection! Built in 1888. Not sure of date on other house. This would make a great Airbnb. Their description is that it’s “magical”. Perfect description! Located on 1.09 acres.  Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,179 square feet. $275,000

From the Zillow listing:


This home is a true marvel of history, frozen in time, lovingly maintained, and located in a very convenient area of Watauga County. There is something magical about this place, a comforting desire that draws you in and makes you feel at home. Built around 1888, this log home sits on about one acre of flat land and has been expanded upon since it was originally built. These additions complement the original simple log home floor plan. Think of the history this home has seen in the past 130 years! The main home has two bedrooms and one and one-half baths with an updated kitchen and bathrooms. There is even a washer and dryer upstairs, something that definitely was not there when it was originally built! The additional guest cottage on the property is a true gem and has been extensively updated. Step out either back door, have a seat by around the campfire and enjoy the sound of the nearby river and ponds. This property has been a successful Air B&B rental for the past two years, renting both homes separately and also together for larger groups. Sold furnished with a few personal exceptions.
