The Overlook Lodge

We are happy to introduce The Overlook Lodge at Wilderness Trail as part of our vacation rental property group! Designed at the peak of the market in 2007, the home was built to an uncompromising standard of quality, luxury, and attention to detail. Resting on a 1+ acre plateau perched at just under 4,300 feet of elevation, The Overlook Lodge looks west out onto unobstructed, rolling mountain views into the Pisgah National Forest and Tennessee Valley.

This Adirondack custom-designed home features natural design elements throughout, including gorgeous hardwoods shadowed by massive, rough-cut cedar timber frame construction. Lavish mountain décor and regal furnishings, highlighted by impressionist style artwork, blend seamlessly together for true rustic elegance.

The Great room boasts a grand, tongue and groove lined cathedral ceiling and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. The space is free-flow to the gourmet kitchen, which is equipped with stainless appliances, exquisite granite countertops, and backsplash, ornate custom cabinetry, and bar seating.

The formal dining area is just steps off of the Great room and kitchen and looks out onto expansive ridgeline views. Step out to the abundant covered outdoor living and dining space, with a built-in gas grill and fireplace, and take in the amazing vistas and clean mountain air.

The Overlook Lodge features two grand master suites with lofted ceilings and over-sized bathrooms, offering private soaking tubs and incredible views of their own. There are also two additional full guest suites, one of which doubles as a game room and lounge with its own private balcony. The loft office space is perfect for remote work and learning and lined with iron, rhododendron-themed banisters that create an inclusive, yet private space in the home. All of this within a private mountain-top development only 10 minutes from downtown Banner Elk and an easy driving distance to all of the exciting activities the area offers.
