Natural Beauty

You need not leave your Elk River Club home to soak in the beauty and blessings of Mother Nature; residents savor morning mountain views with a good book and a fresh cup of coffee. Two neighborhood parks provide additional opportunities for fun and relaxation; look deep into the Tennessee mountains at Robbins Sunset Park or let furry friends frolic and little ones play at Riverside Park. The town of Banner Elk shares a handful of plants that thrive in the area, including mountain laurel, clusters of rhododendron, the unmistakable flame azalea and of course, wildflowers. White tailed deer, elk and river otters call our forests home. A black bear sighting is rare; Jessica Porter for Blue Ridge Outdoors writes, “hikers most often report bear encounters in the spring and the fall.” 

Rich in Outdoor Adventures
Situated between two ski resorts—Sugar Mountain Resort and Beech Mountain Resort—outdoor enthusiasts and thrill seekers flock to our region. Banner Elk was recently named a finalist in Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine’s 12th annual Top Adventure Towns Contest. Grandfather Mountain is a family-friendly destination and a TripAdvisor traveler favorite. Home to America’s highest suspension footbridge, the region’s biodiversity shines in full panoramic glory. High Country fishing is another member favorite, from catch-and-release fly fishing at Elk River to time spent at the stocked Julian Price Lake Park.
