Welcome to Highland Mist – you will be so impressed with the unique “top of the world” views in this custom Banner Elk home just completed in July 2011 you will find it difficult to leave. This large lodge is located on a lofty hill with 180-degree views into North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. No matter the season you visit, the bucolic scene includes rolling hills, high mountain peaks, and deep valleys that will simply delight and help you unwind. Simply put, nature's bounty is your closest neighbor here in this special place.
This gorgeous, custom mountain cabin is certain to impress you, with its vast exposed beams, lofty ceilings, rustic trusses, and so many other elegant features and extra details especially designed for your comfort. From the moment you enter the door, you are inspired by its ambience of mountain style, complemented by the great room's cathedral ceiling and uniquely refined lodge decor.
You're our special guest here, so the great room warmly welcomes you, with plenty of fine leather furniture and over-stuffed seating, massive wood-burning stone fireplace, exposed logs, and large flat screen TV. Cooking will be a pleasure for you, not a duty, in this elegant chefs' kitchen, complete with granite counters and large island with seating, and it includes all the modern implements for preparing delicious meals. Your group will gather to “break bread” and then stay to chat at the large wooden dining table with comfortable seating, lighted by the warm glow of the unique chandelier.
Most guests find themselves drawn outside to the spacious decks spanning the length of the lodge to view the mountains, an integral part of Highland Mist's attraction. Gather on the upholstered, comfortable outdoor seating around the outside stone-faced fireplace on the large covered deck and share quality time with friends and family while basking in the fire's glow. The large modern grill is the ideal spot for cooking tonight's feast, and you can even dine al fresco, mountain style at the outdoor dining table.

The cabin was clean and well stocked. The place itself is private and very comfortably fit everyone for the weekend. Somehow the pictures of this place just don't do it justice. The place felt so inviting and was laid out really well. We had three couples and it was pretty great that everyone could pretty much have a floor to themselves when we wanted to. The main floor was bright and open which served as a perfect gathering space as did the balcony on that level which is enormous! And to top it off there is a fire pit and hot tub down below which can't be beat for enjoying the evening mountains and night time stars. Really excellent place.
And then the views....
Seriously spectacular. From the balcony you can see down and across the mountains and into a meadow that often full of various wildlife. Also wonderful is a great overlook only about mile down the road which is great for a walk in the morning to catch especially glorious sunrises.
If you have any doubts about the drive up, don't worry unless perhaps you come in winter. The drive up is a long set of switchbacks but nothing crazy steep or treacherous. Do drive slow though as there are loose cows and lots of deer roaming around.
