“The Most Perfect Vacation Home - and Perfect Vacation - and Perfect View - Ever!”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We have just returned from a long weekend at The Scarboro House. We were 4 families - 8 adults and 7 children, ranging in age from 8 to 14. The views from every deck, room, balcony, vista - all were breathtaking. The amenities are equal to a 5 star hotel; every detail of your comfort is considered in the crafting of this exquisite home. The details of the home itself are exquisite - and yet it is so incredibly welcoming and cozy. The adults reveled in the hot tub and outdoor fireplace (we lived out there) - and the kids were in their glory with the pool table, arcade games, video games.

Nigel was so wonderful; the hot tub was in the midst of being fixed, and he was so gracious and lovely. Once it was repaired and heated up, we so absolutely loved relaxing after a long day at Grandfather Mountain or Tweetsie Railroad.

We all agreed - 3 nights is not enough - and we cannot WAIT to return. A spectacular and special and amazing place. We never wanted to leave!

“Beautiful Home with Something for Everyone”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a fun and relaxing vacation at this beautiful home this past weekend. There were so many fun things for the kids to do, as well as the adults. Lounging in the hot tub, playing cornhole by the fireplace on the upper balcony, playing pool/foosball/arcade video games on the bottom level, making smores, playing board games, and watching movies with the family in the main living space are just some of the activities that we enjoyed while there. The kids didn't want to leave and neither did we! We can't wait to return to The Scarboro for our next Banner Elk vacation. :)

“Perfect Getaway for Extended Family Gathering”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Scarboro is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. We have used this house, along with its neighboring sister property, for the past two years for an annual family reunion. The location is easy accessible, the views are stunning, and the amenities are superb. Plenty of space for all and lots of things to do for both young and old. We will definitely be back!

“Marvelous”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I highly recommend The Scarboro house . The owners of this property are absolutely amazing! Any questions or concerns were addressed immediately. We had a large group that including adults and children; ages 1 - 10 years old. There was plenty of space for everyone. The game/entertainment room was a must have for our group. There were so many different activities to keep the children (and adults) entertained. The kitchen is gorgeous and fully equipped with everything we needed to cook our daily meals. We all enjoyed this house and its breathtaking views very much. We are going to plan another trip very soon!

“Awesome Cabin”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

For 10 years we have taken our annual ski trip over Super Bowl weekend. This year we stayed at the Scarboro. All 14 of us agreed that it was the best cabin that we have stayed in. There is plenty of room and great amenities. It is also very close to Sugar Mountain which is very convenient. I would highly recommend this cabin!
