Beech Mountain chalet description

North Carolina’s Beech Mountain is Eastern America’s highest incorporated town and resort community at 5506 ft above sea level. This is a place for all seasons where you can do all the things you enjoy.

Photos taken July 7, 2012, except the Snow photo of course.

Our chalet has 2 bedrooms, a loft and 3 bathrooms. We ask that you respect our property and furnishings and sleep only on the beds, therefore the MAXIMUM occupancy is EIGHT (8).

We are 11 miles from Sugar Mountain, 3 miles from Ski Beech and very close to the Beech Mtn Golf Course and Clubhouse.

Upon entering the chalet you find the kitchen and great room with stone fireplace and gas logs, the King master bedroom/bath, the Queen bedroom and second bath. A spiral staircase will lead you to the spacious loft overlooking the great room, where you will find a double bed, 2 twin beds and the third bathroom.

After a day of adventure, relax in the cozy Living room, watch tv, play cards or a board game. The kids can retreat to the loft to sit on the Spudbag and watch their movie. Our Gingerbread house has all the comforts of home.

We ask that you keep our house clean during your stay. We provide the cleaning supplies, as well as dishwasher detergent, liquid dish detergent, and liquid hand soap. We leave a starter supply of toilet paper and paper towels for you and ask that you do the same at departure. You clean it according to our checkout cleaning check sheet. The house is inspected by the owner after every departure.

Summertime temperatures in the 70s provide a refreshing relief from the summer heat. As the leaves turn gold, orange, and red in the autumn, the array of color stretching across the mountain range is breathtaking. When the snow falls, Beech Mountain becomes a winter wonderland with snow skiing/boarding, ice skating, snow tubing and sledding.

As our guest, you may enjoy full privileges at the Beech Mountain Club (fees are charged at the facilities). In Season, enjoy a round of golf at Beech Mountain’s 18-hole championship golf course, play on one of the tennis courts, or lounge around the heated swimming pool. There is a fitness center open year round that provides classes to satisfy your exercise needs. You can take a hike and picnic by the creeks or waterfalls as you watch the wildlife surrounding you.

If you’d like to explore areas off the Mountain, we are convenient to Grandfather Mountain, Linville, Tweetsie Railroad, Banner Elk, Boone, Blowing Rock, and Valle Crucis where you can enjoy horseback riding, whitewater rafting, fly fishing, ziplines, shopping, dining, Lees-McRae and Appalachian Summer Arts Programs and ASU Football.

We hope you enjoy your next trip to the North Carolina Mountains at Spanky's Gingerbread House.

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: We are a retired couple with two daughters, eight grand children and five great grandchildren. In our adult lifetime, we've owned and operated a motorcycle sales/service dealership and a commercial janitorial/maintenance service company.

                          Why the Owner Chose Beech Mountain:
                          We love the mountains of North Carolina and Beech Mountain is a great mountain location near Appalachian State University, with wonderful Snow Sports and Country Club amenities for everyone's enjoyment.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                          When we stay at our house, we enjoy sitting on the deck in the gliders breathing the clean mountain air, listening to the birds sing and watching for deer. It's so peaceful at Beech Mountain.
