Beech Mountain cabin description

Before you rent anywhere on Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, Sugar Mountain or Valle Crucis, you need to check out The Best of Beech - a new log cabin. The cabin is beautifully decorated with new furnishings, and features 4 flat screen TV's and high speed wireless throughout. Our 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths spread over 3 floors allowing you to comfortably sleep 14 and it provides ample room to roam. It is sized perfectly for large family gatherings, yet cozy enough for just a few. Enjoy the view of Ski Beech Mountain from our wrap around porch, take a hike on many of the nearby designated trails or just relax and watch the wildlife meander through the back yard in the setting sun.

Just off Beech Mountain are the charming towns of Banner Elk, Valle Crucis and Blowing Rock. Each of these are home to great restaurants and shopping. Spend time at Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, Linville Caverns, Mystery Hill and the original Mast General Store. You may also opt for an outdoor adventure offered by many of the local outfitters. Whether it is whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, rock climbing, caving, or fly fishing, there is no shortage of world class outdoor activities within a 30 minute drive.

The town of Boone is close as well. Boone is home to Appalachian State University. There is shopping at the quaint shops in the downtown area. There are also many restaurants in the downtown that have local cuisine. There is the Daniel Boone Inn with the home style family buffet or The Horn in the West outdoor theater with dining if you choose.

The Town of Beech Mountain requires that you have a vehicle that is properly equipped in the event of inclement weather during the winter months. You must have a vehicle with 4WD or chains if there is snow or ice to keep you safe during your visit.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Both of our families had visited the mountains of North Carolina when we were children and teenagers. We came to visit in 2010 in the summer with our children and stayed in a cabin on Beech Mountain. We fell in love with the area and all that it had to offer. Our family decided that we should find a place that we could come and stay more often.

              Why the Owner Chose Beech Mountain:
              We looked for the perfect place for our family for almost two years before we found this cabin. We wanted a place that was new, and had all of the conveniences of home. We also wanted a house that was close to the ski slopes, but would feel that we were in the woods surrounded by nature.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              This cabin is a home away from home. There are all of the conveniences of a well-stocked kitchen. You can relax on the back deck and watch the wildlife, or you can sit and watch your kids play in the natural area and build a fort in woods. At night you can gather family and friends around the firepit. The downstairs rec room is a great place to watch movies and play games, while the upstairs Great Room has another TV and DVD player too. The cabin is a short walk from some of the best hiking trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains with waterfalls and trout filled ponds.
