Good Time

A great long weekend family vacation! Was a little warm inside the cottage (we weren't aware of the lack of AC) but overall a good trip full of precious memories with our little ones! Very close to all attractions!

Enjoyed our stay!

WE were quite comfortable in the small round cottage! Just enough room for the 2 of us, and our small Chihuahua. LOCATED IN A NICE AREA close to many small towns and beautiful scenery! We loved Grandfather Mountain, the Banner Elk winery, the pottery stores, and the many lovely hiking trails. Would love coming to the cottage again sometime!

Skiing & snow boarding get away

The cottage was a perfect getaway for us and our 2 Labs. Walked the dogs around the hills in the mornings. Went skiing and snow boarding in the afternoons then came back and relaxed in the hot tub. The evenings we sat by the cozy fireplace. We would definitely come back again!!

Beautiful Area-Lovely Cottage

This was a last minute vacation and Frank was kind enough to accommodate us as well as our dog. It was just what we needed-quiet and relaxing. The cottage was tucked in a neighborhood that was quiet that you felt like the only one there. The hot tub was perfect for the chilly nights We only did a few things-tubing and hiking and enjoyed them both. Dinner at The Painted Fish was an awesome find with an unusual menu that changes seasonally. We hope to come back again!

My husband and I stayed her for Labor Day Weekend. The cabin is nice and clean. Great location, only minutes from Boone. We would stay again.

Lovely little cabin

What a perfect place to escape the summer heat! My husband and i brought our 2 dogs here to hike for a few days, and we were very pleased with everything. The cabin is perfectly situated between Boone and Banner Elk, and is very close to a grocery store, which is great, cause you'll definitely want to grill out every night. There is also a fantastic hiking trail, called the Profile Trail, just down the road. A beautiful hike, with fantastic views of Grandfather Mountain. Mill Ridge is a beautiful community, and everyone was so nice. There is a wonderful pottery store right at the entrance, make sure you stop by. The cabin was very clean, and everything worked great, including the wifi. We used the hot tub every night, i was worried it wouldn't be cool enough, but the temperature was perfect, in the 60's at night, great sleeping weather! My dogs absolutely loved the place, and were mesmerized by the bullfrogs in the pond out back. We hope to come back next summer for a longer stay. Great little place you have there, Frank! Thanks for letting us share a bit of it!

One word...AWESOME!

My husband and I, 2 boys (14 and 8), and dog just returned from a 4 day stay at Frank's Cottage on the Round. My boys have never been to the mountains and I must say that Frank's cabin had a lot to do with how much they enjoyed their stay. From the hot tub and play station to the onsite pool, tennis, and basketball courts, it felt like vacation to them even when we weren't away enjoying the local attractions. That is saying a lot for very active and easily bored 14 and 8 year old boys! The grill and kitchen were just the right size. We saved a ton of money on restaurants by being able to cook and eat at the cabin, leaving extra money to enjoy the local sights. Frank was a breeze to work with and the cabin couldn't have been cleaner. We will definitely rent Frank's cabin again.

Relaxing Haven

We celebrated our 41 anniversary with a trip to Banner Elk area. The cabin was just the right size with all we needed to have a relaxing escape. We enjoyed the quietness of the area and the summer outdoor sounds. We enjoyed the area's sights and then back to the cabin to unwind. Owner was easy to work with. Would love to visit again.

Nice, cozy, quiet place

Great place, The homeowner was great to deal with as well. Would definitely stay at again

Rebecca Kovacik

Great little find!

We have never used V.H.R. before, so Frank's Cottage in the Round was our first experience. My boyfriend and I rented out this adorable home for 3 nights in late December and we couldn't be happier with the location, price, and cleanliness. We came during a great week as it snowed a bit leaving us with fresh powder at Beech Mountain so we packed in a wonderful day of skiing. After being up at the mountain all day we were able to come back to our warm, cozy cottage and crank up the fireplace! We also used the hot tub every night-- it was SO nice to have since it was very cold and windy. I would definitely recommend this place for couples, very romantic. We will be back! Thanks, Frank!

Banner Elk Cottage

We loved our time spent at the Cottage in the Round. We walked to the duck pond every afternoon, sat in the backyard swing to watch the sun set and enjoyed the jacuzzi most evenings. We didn't have to venture far to see many wonderful sites. Trout fishing, gem mining, visiting the bears at Grandfather Mountain Winery. Great food at the local restaurants and a grocery nearby to stock our pantry. The owner is a pleasure to rent from he shares his memories and sites to see. You'll love it in Banner Elk don't take my word for it go visit :)

Just us two for two days

My boyfriend and I needed a mid holiday getaway. We are sorta work alcoholics and hasn't been on vacation in years. So we booked this place and forced our selves to turn off our phones and relax. We didn't do much be sleep, walk, talk, eat a d grill but that is the experience we wanted. There was loads to do but we just needed peace and quiet. After getting there we felt so bad for leaving our dog at home. We will be coming back hoping to make it a yearly trip.

Excellent stay

My girlfriend and I stayed at this cottage over Thanksgiving weekend and enjoyed our stay very much. It was the perfect place for two people. It was secluded but within easy reach of stores in Banner Elk and restaurants and other sites in Boone and in the mountains nearby. The hot tub and the fireplace were particularly excellent parts of this cottage. The kitchen included all the essentials to make a complete Thanksgiving meal and for all our other meals as well. The bed was very comfortable and made sleeping in very very easy. For those looking for a relaxing and quiet getaway, this is a great place. It was romantic.

Perfect Location for a Cozy Mountain Getaway

This is my family's second stay at the Cottage in the Round. We love it! It has everything our family of three could need. It is in a great central location. Everywhere we wanted to go was within 10 minutes of the cabin. We enjoyed Oktoberfest on Sugar Mountain, caving & rafting with Earth & River Adventures, and hiking the profile trail at Grandfather Mountain. The hot tub made a great soothing addition to our action packed days. Thanks Frank! We will most definitely be back!! -Ashley

Great place for a weekend getaway.

My wife and I, along with our two dogs, used this cottage for a weekend getaway and we couldn't be happier with it. It was in a great location with plenty of stuff to do, and great views. There are plenty of hiking trails around the area, which our dogs thoroughly enjoyed. We plan on using this cottage again in the future, only next time we will book a longer stay.

Lesbian couple enjoys Romantic cottage

Everything was within driving distance; sky valley zip lining, grandfather mountain, linville falls, wahoos white river rafting and their new river tubing adventure. We are two women who needs assistance with the gas grill and fireplace, Frank answered calls and tended to our needs everytime. The cottage was clean and everything we needed (pots, pans, forks, washing liquid, bleach, towels) was available. The only thing you would need to bring is food. Star gazing in the jacuzzi in 50 degree weather was phenomenal. The water remained hot outside in the jacuzzi and also inside of the cabin. I was upset that the bikes were a viable however, wasnt worried about the mountains wildlife since the grass was cut. I'm afraid of tall grass lol. The able television, ps2, board games, movies, wifi was also beneficial to the cabin experience. I'm grateful that he was available all times when we called. He even gave us ideas of what to do while there. Would rent during wintertime

Great place to stay for 2 adults & 1 child. Very clean and cute. The cottage is right in the middle of Granfather Mountain and Tweetsie Mountain. We will definately be staying at the cottage again. We stayed when it was 90 degrees during the day, there is no A/C but it is not needed at night it was cool and comfortable. We just loved it! The neighborhhod that the cottage is in is so nice and quiet. Thanks :) One thing I must bring up, dont expect a "Mac Daddy Grill" the grill that is there is not the best and it is definately not new, but it worked out fine.

Wonderful stay for our first anniversary

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this little cottage for our first wedding anniversary. The hot tub was great to relax in the evenings, and the size of the cottage was just right for the two of us. Thank you for providing this wonderful getaway that includes so many great amenities for the price; there were bikes and fishing poles we could have used but didn't have the time unfortunately. We would love to come back sometime in the future!

Great Place To Stay

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the cottage. It was comfortable, easy to find, and centric to everything we wanted to experience. Would definitely visit there again and stay in the same place if possible.

Very Satisfied

This cozy cottage was exactly as described. It was clean and well-decorated, located in a quiet neighborhood close to Tweetsie and Grandfather Mountain. We really enjoyed our stay. The gas grill came in handy for cookouts. The kitchen is very small (as is the cottage!) but well-equipped for our family meals. The sleeper sofa was comfortable for our kids.

Romantic Getaway

This is our second time renting this property. We absolutely loved our stay. They are so gracious to rent their home out for mountain lovers to enjoy the area. It was a much needed weekend away for Mommy and Daddy! It's very close in driving distance to the Biltmore, which we traveled to. We also visited our old "haunts" from our Appalachian State college days. Thank you again! Next time we're bringing the kiddo.

Frank Duranczyk

Owner's reply:

I would like to say that every customer that stays at the cottage in the round loves it. Great place and very reasonable and returning guests get a $ 20 voucher for future stays.

Cozy Cottage

Liked the location very much; this community is convenient to Banner Elk, Boone, Blowing Rock and lots of other locations. Very private setting, that although was close to other cabins, we couldn't see our neighbors because of all the trees. The cabin itself was very clean and nice, and the bed was very comfortable; but the cabin is quite small. We weren't able to open any of the windows for some cross breeze, so the cabin was warm -- even with the 2 fans running. All in all, we had a nice 4 day vacation, and were happy we could take our little dog with us. He loved all the new smells and long walks. Would recommend this cabin for a weekend getaway -- but may be tight for a week-long stay.

Convenient Peace

Frank Thanks again for accommodating us on short notice. Your place is so peaceful and yet very close to anything you want or need. That kind of peace and scenery just minutes from an awesome grocery store and any style restaraunt your heart desires. We found there are three lakes within 20 minutes. Just go to the Blowing Rock Visitor Center. This was our second stay and we will be back again. Ever think of selling let us know.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

My husband and I needed a quick weekend getaway and this place was exactly what we needed. Frank responded quickly to my inquiry and we were off to the cottage. The cottage was very clean and was very cozy. It snowed while we were there and was cold but it made snuggling up even better. Thanks Frank we hope to come back again.

Very reasonable cost and pet friendly! The cottage and area was super relaxing. Would stay here again in an instant.




We had a wonderful time. The place was very clean and the neighborhood was very quite - normally we like to be out away from EVERYTHING, but we hardly knew there was anyone else around. We were very pleased.

Awesome time in Banner Elk!

We had a really great time during our stay at this cute little cottage. It is close to everything! We went tubing at Hawksnest, hiked all the way up to Calloway Peak via the Profile Trail, checked out Linville Caverns and Linville Falls (beautiful!!), and spent plenty of time in the jacuzzi recovering from all that hiking. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family. The only downside is the kitchen... we found it challenging to fit the chef's big cooking brain into such a small space. But it still got the job done.

Warm and cozy

This little cottage is just about perfect in every way, very clean and cozy, nicely decorated and well stocked with the conveniences of home. The location was great, making access to local sights easy. The reasonable rental fee made our 3 day mini vacation possible. We will definitely stay in the cottage again, hopefully soon.

Great Vacation Home

My husband and I spent our 10th year anniversary here and had a wonderful time. Centrally located in the middle of everything. Great views and decorated beautifully. Would love to return for another visit. (Really didn't want to leave, just wanted my kids with me to enjoy it). Thanks, Jodi

Peace of Mind

My husband and I rented the cozy cottage for our anniversary weekend and it was a peaceful experience. We did absolutely nothing but lounge around the cottage and enjoy each other's company without the sound of children in the background. It was almost too peaceful the first night. At the end of our stay, I realized it was the first time in a long time that I didn't have to think about anything but relaxing. To my surpise the cottage was exactly as described and pictured by the owner. The owner was great and worked with our family's schedule for arrival and departure times. It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back.

Banner Elk Retreat

My husband and I stayed in this cottage for a couple of days. It was absolutely beautiful, just as the surroundings were. It was convenient to area attractions, restaurants, and shopping. We were beyond pleased with our time spent there. I can't think of any way there could be any improvements. It was perfect!

Excellent Location

We had a wonderful time we had at your cottage in Banner Elk! The location was great and we hiked at Grandfather Mountain on day and tubed on the New river the next day. I was surprised at how much there was too do since I usually only think of the mountains for skiing in the winter. The downside is now I've discovered that I'm addicted to gem mining! This is a great value for a couple or small family. We looking forward to planning to coming back.


Raleigh, North Carolina

Very romantic and cozy

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the cottage. We were there for 3 nights and 4 days. We wanted a romantic get away and we got it at the cottage. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return to the cottage for another get away.


athens ga

nice place

this cabin is exactly as pictured on the website. it is a nice place with a hot tub. the "view" is of the pond out front but the highway is also out front (500 yards away with trees in front), but it really didn't detract that much. the directions to get to the cabin were wrong and so we spent 15 extra minutes trying to figure it out. the lockbox was also a huge hassle to get open. the road was icy when we arrived and our car almost slid into a ditch so be wary. the roads were deiced in the morning for us.

Beautiful Cabin!! Owners are easy to work with!

Thanks, Casey! My husband and I had one night to get away to Banner Elk to ski. Casey, the owner, was very courtious and easy to work with. The cabin is in a great location; right between Boone and Banner Elk. The cabin was clean and beautiful. We had a great time and hope to come back to stay longer! Thanks again, Casey!!!

We had everything we needed to spend several lazy days just enjoying life and nature. We spent several hours in the hot tub, loved it! Excellent location, easy to find. Thank you, Laurie & Len

Hi Casey,
Thanks for a great weekend. Although the weather didn't cooperate, we had a nice time, and the cottage was perfect. Very, very clean nicely decorated and has all the amenities. We will definetly stay there again.
Steve Dalton

Hi Casey,
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your cabin. It was truly a dream vacation. All your special touches were so much appreciated, from the puzzels and games in the closet to the wonderful hot tub and barbeque grill on hte deck. We had a wonderful time out on the Blue Ridge Parkway and surrounding areas every day, but couldn't wait to get "home" to our special getaway retreat at the cabin. We knew we would miss the place--and we do, already! We hope to return next year, and for many years thereafter.
