Welcome to Elk Haus! This tranquil cabin offers a brilliant opportunity to "get away from it all" in a newly remodeled and decorated home that combines style and amenities with cozy cabin living and Mother Nature's very best views. Literally down the road from Wolf Ridge Ski Resort and Wolf Laurel Golf Club, there’s an activity for everyone here, and there’s also a quiet spot on the deck with your name on it!
“We visited friends that have a cabin here in July. It was so beautiful seeing the mountains, and the sunsets over them every night. The setting is so peaceful and quiet and the air is so fresh and cool… we knew we had to buy a property here ourselves!” – Dan and Claudia, Owners
"Thank YOU for giving us the gift of a beautiful getaway! As Shane said, it was so restorative for us - much needed. We loved the many warm blankets, easy fireplace, the games, kids section (super cute), the look everywhere, the location" - Shane and Christina (Dec 22)
The entire experience was great and this home is a gem. Cozy cottage like feel with spectacular views yet plenty of space and beds for the 6 of us who were there. Loved the decor and feel and the care the hosts have clearly put into it. Very nice hot tub. Kitchen had everything we needed. The basement area was great with another tv and pool table in addition to the bunks. Communication from hosts was fast, thorough, and caring. Great stay in all ways! - Edward (March 23)
With 3 king bedrooms and a classic bunkroom, our mountainside cabin, that sleeps 10, has everything you need for the ultimate getaway with your family or friends. We designed this airy tree-top space ourselves up from the studs, making sure to include all of the little details that evoke the area’s amazing activities!
LIVING and DINING SPACES:
The cabin's open-plan living is centered around floor-to-ceiling picture windows with stunning mountain views from both the living and dining room areas. From a comfy leather couch you can snuggle up to a fire, play games, or just enjoy a book or a quiet moment looking out to the mountains.
Our adjacent dining table seats 10 and makes it easy to continue your conversations from the living room or to keep enjoying the fire and the view, while everyone gathers to enjoy a special meal.
Downstairs there’s a second living room all about entertainment, with it’s own giant smart TV, a café table nook and an incredible separate game room area with a regulation-sized pool table. Lastly, there’s a high-end Infinity game table and even old-school board games to make sure that the fun never has to end.
The brand new kitchen is open to the main room (and the view!) and is completely stocked with any and everything needed to brew a cup of coffee or create a gourmet repast. A suite of sparkling stainless steel appliances combines with all the thoughtful owner touches to make cooking a thoroughly enjoyable experience every time.
Off the kitchen is the first spacious king bedroom with its own full en-suite bathroom. This master bedroom will inspire you to hit the slopes with its curated “Ski” décor, and then stick the landing when you dive into a bed with cozy sheets and a brand new mattress at the end of the day!
“Hike” or “Paddle” upstairs to the two other newly decorated king loft bedrooms that share their own full bathroom, or head downstairs past the gaming area to the classic bunkroom for 4. Just a note: The bunks have been cleverly fashioned to give each guest their own curtained bed and private hideaway space, a fun and unique solution for the young, and young at heart!
Along with a convenient powder room, the main floor master has its own en-suite full bathroom. The loft has its own designated full bath on the 2nd floor and there is an additional full bath off the basement bunkroom! We provide all the complimentary toiletries and fresh towels and linens - all you need to bring is yourself.
OUTSIDE SPACES - HOT TUB VIEWS:
Outside there’s a huge wrap-around deck, with picturesque “Four Season” views. It’s also the perfect spot for morning coffee or enjoying a drink from the brand new hot tub while watching the sunset after a big day full of adventure.
"We went hiking and rafting every day, and visited the many breweries in Asheville. Had some really great food and, most of all, relaxed…” – Dan and Claudia, Owners
Elk Haus is positioned right at the top of the mountain minutes from the Wolf Mountain Resort and next to the Wolf Ridge Ski Resort. The air up here is fresh and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing.
If you're a fan of the great outdoors - we really do have everything you need for an action-packed vacation. The area is surrounded by hiking trails and rivers where you can raft, canoe, mountain bike or go tubing, and the golf club, practically right next door, is another very popular choice. Just keep burning those calories so you can visit some of the breweries in Asheville or dine at the Biltmore!

Our family fell in love with the Wolf Ridge area after visiting family friends who had a cabin nearby. We immediately began shopping for one of our own and have spent a great deal of money and time making it a special place for us and our friends. We are now pleased to share it with others when we are not using it ourselves.
Welcome to Elk Haus! We created this tranquil cabin to provide the means for us to "get away from it all" but be able to relax in a home that combines style and amenities with cozy cabin living and Mother Nature's very best views. Literally down the road from Wolf Ridge Ski Resort and Wolf Laurel Golf Club, there’s an activity for everyone here, and there’s also a quiet spot on the deck with your name on it!
Come see why we love spending so much time in the cabin, but also enjoying the nature around with plentiful hikes including portions of the Appalachian trail a few minutes away. Enjoy the sunsets from the deck and the water sports on both sides of the NC/TN borders all within a few minutes of The Elk Haus!!
