A Second Home in North Carolina That’s Second to None

Throughout the course of our lives, certain places stay with us. We revisit them time and again, in our imaginations, on vacations, or perhaps that perfect place exists only in our daydreams. While home is where we put down roots, it’s not always where we can slow down and stretch our legs. As difficult as such places are to find, they are even harder to leave. Elk River Club in Banner Elk, NC is such a place to so many. With sprawling views of the Blue Ridge mountains and rolling golf course fairways, shimmering lakeside vistas, unique member amenities, and welcoming members, Elk River Club boasts the most prestigious second homes in the state of North Carolina

Location, Location, Location

Dotting the Blue Ridge mountains, the homes at Elk River Club offer unparalleled beauty and some of the most distinctive spaces in North Carolina’s High Country. Thoughtfully designed to highlight the casual elegance of Mountain Contemporary architecture, a second home in Banner Elk, NC is in actuality second to none. Current residents and members Wayne and Susie Morgan attest, “This is one of the most beautiful places in the North Carolina mountains.” 

Whether you’re escaping the summer heat of the Southeast or fleeing the harsh winters of the North, a second home could be just what you need to bring the family together for the holidays or enjoy the kind of relaxed, sweet tea summers you’ve always imagined while having plenty on offer to keep the kids and grandkids busy. 

Find Your Goldilocks Home

Depending upon your stage of life, and what your plans allow for, the homes available in some communities may all be too similar in size or too high in price, leaving many in an uncomfortable middle with a home that’s too big for their needs, or far too small. At Elk River Club, there are homes and cottages available with as many as seven bedrooms or as few three bedrooms, with prices ranging from $699,000 to north of $3 million. If a full house is more than you have in mind, Elk River Club has a wide selection of luxury condominiums featuring 3-4 bedrooms and starting prices at $450,000 without sacrificing access to the area’s natural beauty and the Club’s standout amenities.

What’s more, if you aren’t ready for a home just yet but know you want a second home in Banner Elk, NC, the Elk River Club also offers reasonably priced homesite parcels so that you can secure your land while planning for the home of your dreams. Whatever your plans are, Elk River Club works closely with local realtors and developers to help you execute that plan and get you into one of the most prestigious second homes in North Carolina. 

The Elk River Club and Community

While the location speaks for itself, and the diversity of homes available gives homebuyers a welcoming amount of options, what can’t be measured or quantified is the Elk River Club experience. Young families, empty nesters, and retirees all find an invigorating sense of community at the Club. Amenities like their Jack Niklaus-designed golf course, professionally operated tennis programs, a comprehensive equestrian center, pool, and fitness center provide a deep sense of camaraderie, while a calendar of social events like early evening cocktail hours along the riverbank are where new friendships are forged and old ones are nurtured. While not baked into the price of your second home, perks like these are truly priceless. 

We’ve all spent the last year reflecting on what really matters. While we’ve been forced to get a little too comfortable in our homes, the people we shared these times with are the reason we dream of brighter tomorrows. What better way to make that dream a reality than purchasing your own small piece of heaven on earth? As you consider what a second home in Banner Elk, NC can do for you and your family, we’d love to help. Reach out today for more information and get started on the next leg of your life’s journey.
