Elk River Equestrian Facility

As a horse owner there is nothing worse than knowing your sweet equine is not always going to have a place to run free. As cities continue sprawling out to the rural areas, we are seeing more and more facilities getting torn down. This is one of the reasons Elk River Club is one of the oldest gated communities in North Carolina with outstanding equestrian facilities, The Saddle Club. It is often said for horse owners who are looking for a home to purchase that they are not just buying a home, but purchasing a lifestyle. Elk River Club of Banner Elk, NC is here to provide you with that luxury lifestyle.

The area provides crystal clear streams and hospitality unsurpassed anywhere in the region. However, once you step into the world of Elk River Club, you are entering a place where you will have every amenity at your fingertips.
