Stunning Mountain Lodge in The Headwaters – Banner Elk

The Soaring Eagle Lodge is a beautifully appointed luxury vacation home located in the gated community of The Headwaters at Banner Elk.   Tucked back into the mountain and looking out over miles and miles of eastern Tennessee Valley views, this impeccably built and maintained 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath home features unparalleled views! When you walk through the grand entryway you’re automatically transported to a more peaceful and serene time. The richly decorated living area boasts high vaulted ceilings with huge wooden beams and an impressive wood burning fireplace. This leads into a spacious chef’s kitchen and dining room with a stunning view and breakfast bar directly off. The generously sized master bedroom is conveniently adjacent to the living area. From there, enter into a lovely master bath with separate Jacuzzi tub centered under a beautiful stained glass window. With the other three large bedrooms and baths following suit, it’s hard to imagine a more calm or welcoming space. Covered parking plus a two car garage and large outdoor decks looking out over 100 miles of southwestern Blue Ridge Mountain views are just a few of the extras this home has to offer.

The Headwaters at Banner Elk is a gated private community nestled at a perfect elevation of 3,100 to 4,400 feet in the beautiful North Carolina High Country, surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest and Cherokee National Forest. Headwaters offers many unique family friendly outdoor activities for our guests, including stocked lakes for fishing, a tennis court, hiking trails, dog park, a waterfall park, expert level mountain road cycling and much more !  Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, the Soaring Eagle Lodge is sure to become a yearly retreat for you and your family!

The Soaring Eagle Lodge is just a 15 minute drive from downtown Banner Elk, which is a destination all its own!  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. Each season is perfect for outdoor recreation, but there is much more to do here than simply enjoy the splendor of nature. There are also a variety of festivals, community events, upscale shops, and gourmet restaurants to enjoy in this quaint town. Boasting various performing arts centers, theaters, galleries and museums within an easy driving distance, the area showcases internationally recognized artists and performances including Broadway shows, dance ensembles, opera companies and concerts from classical to Blue Grass.

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 NC High Country vacation!

Fantastic Winter Vacation
Suzanne W – December 2016

My family and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect stay! When we arrived that night the house was all set. After driving 14 hours to get there, it was great to see that everything was ready. The lights were on, the heat was on, and everything was clean and ready for us. The house had everything that we’ve needed to enjoy a great family vacation. There were plenty of cooking materials, lots of wood for the fireplace, and comfort throughout the house . Joanie was so helpful. She answered my calls whenever had questions regarding the house or the area and always responded right away. The house is beautiful, exactly like the photos. We were there for the first snow of the season , and everyone had a wonderful time. There was so much to do in the area. We were very close to Beech Mountain where we enjoyed skiing, ice skating and all of the family have a great time hiking locally. Would definitely advise people to have a four wheel or all-wheel-drive car if they’re coming during the winter snow. . Will definitely rent again if we’re back in the area!
