Great house!! Very warm and welcoming. There was deer in the yard.
Stayed February, 2019
The house was comfortable, clean, and spacious. Plenty of room for our two small kids 1 and 5 to run and play. Rented in winter and house stayed very warm (temp down to 0). Within a 5 min drive or less of shopping center and restaurants. Short commute to skiing. tubing, etc.
Only drawback was steep drive with small turnaround at top. Was able to maneuver in Xterra but larger SUV would have been very difficult or require reversing drive.

Great cabin and features, and it was very clean...one of the cleanest we've ever stayed at. With a 10-month old, it mattered what little guy might find on the floor, and there were zero issues.
Beds were comfortable and the location was remote and super quiet; exactly what we needed. As previous posters mentioned, the driveway is steep, but hey it's the mountains and it was no problem for us.
Drawbacks: The VRBO Home Away app!! The smartphone app triggered and appeared the day before arrival on our phone, which was nice, reminding us of our upcoming trip and all the details. Well, be sure to double-check those details, as they were misleading. Specifically, the app said that upon arrival, the lock-box code to get the house key was " " <--that's BLANK, btw. So I had to call the owner late at night to get the code, which I felt awful for. GAH!! Also, in the VRBO app said that the wifi was on a constand connection with no sign-on required. Well, that was the furthest from the truth. It wasn't until the next day we saw the info inside the cabin that there was indeed a password required. GAH!! Could have saved a day's worth of data from all of us.
I have no idea of the connection with VRBO owners and the downloadable app, but there needs to be some due diligence there. This experience tells me that owners and the app are clearly not talking to each other as to what is reported out to guests, and this guest suffered by trusting the app's prompting. To be fair, I'm still not sure if an email had previously been sent out that said "DON"T TRUST THE APP, HERE'S THE CABIN INFO!" But with busy lives, and the app comes a'calling the day before, those two need to agree on the information being sent out.
Other than those very minor issues, we could not be more pleased with the Getaway. Super, super cozy and you'll love it. We even enjoyed the fire pit out back. Plus, our son began to walk at the Getaway that weekend which we'll always look back on with fondness.

The location was so convenient to all that Banner Elk has to offer while offering a private and quiet retreat to rest. We're hoping to come back to this spot again soon.
