Beech Mountain.....................My home is 1/2 mile from my driveway to the Beech Mountain Ski Resort parking lot. In the summer you will be interested to know that our home has membership at the Private Beech Mountain Club which allows our guests for a fee to golf on Eastern America's highest golf course, play tennis and swim in the Olympic swimming pool on Beech Mountain. We finished a major renovation in October 2013. In April of2014 and 2015 we continue with repairs, spring cleaning & more renovations. While we really liked our home before our renovations, we love it now!
While we have all new carpet and flooring, we are still allowing a small well behaved dog (not puppy). However, crating your dog is required if they are left alone in our home.

Other highlights of this home are unwinding on the large decks with your morning coffee or just grilling out on the gas grill.

About the owner: My name is Debbie Apple and and my husband Ken and I are the owners of the Apple Chalet. We bought Apple Chalet I in 1997 since sold) and then purchased Apple Chalet II (this one)in 2000. I started out as a rent from owner until in 2002, I loved it so much I became a NC Real Estate broker (renting vacation Rentals). Happily, I am no longer a broker, I am now retired and live in Florida with my husband. I get to enjoy our Grandchildren AND secondly,I get to concentrate on renting out our own Beech Mountain home. My husband and I like nothing better than to be able to visit Apple Chalet any chance that we can get, and we hope that you will feel the same way about our home that we do, and that you will want to come back time and time again.
Why the Owner Chose Beech Mountain: Ken and I lived in Florida, but when we talked about having a summer retirement home in the future, we always came back to wanting to retire somewhere in the mountains. Our 25th wedding anniversary was coming up, so we decided not to wait to purchase a home to enjoy. We started checking out different areas and fell in love with the fact that the Banner Elk/Beech Mtn. area basically had 2 strong rental seasons (we knew we needed to rent our home to help pay the expenses) - the winter ski season and the summer and fall season. We took a summer family trip and Ken chose Beech Mountain, mainly because he had heard from friends what a wonderful golf course the Beech Mountain Golf Course was. The whole family fell in love with Beech Mountain and all the fun things there was to do in the area. Then to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we returned again in October and the fall foliage was spectacular. We were completely sold on Beech Mountain after checking out the Ski Beech Resort (now Beech Mountain Ski Resort). We realized what a winter wonderland Beech Mountain truly was. That explains how we picked Beech Mountain, but 'why this property?' The answer is simple. We had purchased our first property on Beech Mountain in 1997. Since we enjoyed that home so, we decided to look for another. The first requirement was that it had Beech Mountain Club Membership (has a fabulous golf course, tennis, Olympic size swimming pool, exercise room etc). Secondly, we loved that it had a great location, it was only ½ mile to the parking lot at Ski Beech Resort. Our first home, was 1 1/2 miles from the Ski Resort. More importantly though, we just fell in love with this home the first minute we walked in the door, and knew this was the home for us. We have since sold Apple Chalet I, so now Apple Chalet II is our only Beech Mtn. home.
In the summer, we love nothing more than to sit on the upper deck enjoying the cool mountain air and watching the deer that visit our property.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: In spring, summer and part of fall - as this home has BEECH MTN.
