Church Groups

Cornerstone Cabin Rentals was founded on the biblical principles of "faith", "hope" and "love" and that is why our cabins are named such. Our property and rentals offer quaint accommodations that are ideal for church groups and smaller organizations that desire to retreat to the mountains of Western NC and enjoy Banner Elk's beauty.

Youth group events, ladies' retreats, men's outings, we welcome them all.

Here, you can escape from the distractions of the outside world and immerse yourself in God's creation. Bring food and games and you never have to leave. You can bond 24/7 by staying under one roof, or spread out a little more and allow the guests to enjoy their own space. Both arrangements include all the amenities you need. You'll be surrounded by natural beauty amidst countless attractions and activities.

If adventure is on the agenda, you'll have your work cut out for you deciding what to do. Skiing, fishing, hiking, golfing, water rafting, you name it, it's available somewhere close. How about simply retreating to the woods and relaxing in personal hammocks?
