Along with the many scenic views, fishing, hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, golf, and horseback riding are also available close by. If you are a fan of live Theater, Banner Elk is home to 2 wonderful venues, The Ensemble Stage and the Lees McRae Summer Theater. We will be happy to make arrangements for any of these activities for you. If all you want to do is "kick back" and relax, then we'll have a chair waiting for you on our porch in summer or by the fire in our living room in the winter. We look forward to hosting you soon.
