- We decorated our home in a style that reflects the beauty of the region using artwork from local artists (including Wesley Waugh, a Blowing Rock resident and artist) for the paintings photographs, wall hangings and decor. The master bedroom with attached bathroom has a wonderful wooded view for watching the trees sway, snow fall or raccoons visiting the deck at night, and is peaceful and quiet. The guest room is off the living room with a view of mountain laurels and is warm and cozy. There is a spiral staircase leading the the loft, a perfect getaway for kids. Outfitted with 2 twin beds, cushy sofa, chair and television with DVR, it is the perfect place to hang out and play games, watch a movie, or take a nap. Ample clean, comfortable and cozy linens, comforters, pillows and throws are provided for both bedrooms and bathrooms. All bedrooms have a television with remote....moreless

- Central gas heat keeps this house cozy and warm. We recently added beautiful barn wood to the walls in the living room enhancing the warmth and charm of the home. Outside storage shed is loaded with firewood as well as a couple of sleds... it is great for storing skis and boots and extra gear!...moreless

Located in the High Country in western North Carolina at over 5,000 ft/elevation, Beech Mountain is cool during the summer months and perfect for hiking and enjoying wildlife. It is centrally located with easy access for enjoying the beauty and natural elements of this mountainous region.
A prominent scenic attraction and globally recognized nature preserve, Grandfather Mountain, on Highway 221 offers expansive views, naturalist programs, hiking, photography, and a mile-high swing bridge. In addition, the annual Grandfather Mountain Highland Games in July feature brawny athletes, delicate dancers, noisy bagpipe band parades, rocking Celtic music and a spectacular highland setting makes this colorful celebration of Scottish culture the best highland games in America.
Nearby, the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area, also known as the Grand Canyon of the East, is one of the wildest, most rugged gorges in the eastern United States. It's also an outdoor paradise for hikers, day-hikers and backpackers. The Gorge encompasses more than 12,000 acres around the Linville River, making it the third largest wilderness area in North Carolina, and one of only two wilderness gorges in the southern United States. One of the most popular of the numerous trails the Gorge offers, the Linville Falls (2.8 miles) hike offers five different perspectives of the waterfalls in two short sections. The first section, known as the Erwins View Trail, takes you to three overlooks where you'll appreciate the power of the water that carved the gorge. The second section offers views of the lower falls as it plunges into a basin and then into Linville River itself.
For centuries, the marvels of Linville Caverns were unknown to man. Discovered in the early 1800's, Linville Caverns was opened for public touring in 1937. Since that time many upgrades to the pathways and lighting system have enhanced the safe touring experience that now exists. Courteous and experienced guides take you into the subterranean world, giving you the history of the caverns and allowing you to view the grand work of nature. Experience the beauty of these age-old mountains from the inside!
The Blue Ridge Parkway is many things. It is the longest road planned as a single unit in the United States. It is an elongated park, protecting significant mountain landscapes far beyond the shoulders of the road itself. It is a series of parks providing the visitor access to high mountain passes, a continuous series of panoramic views, the boundaries of its limited right-of-way rarely apparent and miles of the adjacent countryside seemingly a part of the protected scene. It is a 'museum of the managed American countryside,' preserving the roughhewn log cabin of the mountain pioneer, the summer home of a textile magnate, and traces of early industries such as logging, railways, and an old canal. It is the product of a series of major public works projects which provided a boost to the travel and tourism industry and helped the Appalachian region climb out the depths of the Great Depression. Stretching almost 500 miles along the crest of the Blue Ridge mountains through North Carolina and Virginia, it encompasses some of the oldest settlements of both pre-historic and early European settlement. The Blue Ridge Parkway is all these things and more.
To truly experience all that the High Country has to offer, you must visit the small towns and villages of the region. The quaint village of Blowing Rock offers a day of shopping on Main Street, gourmet restaurants, numerous seasonal festivals and concerts as well as outdoor activities. Nearby, Valle Crucis, home of the original Mast General store also features the Valle Crucis Country Fair in October with apple butter making, baked goods, crafts, music and more... held outdoors to enjoy the colors of fall.
The largest of the towns in region, Boone is home to Appalachian State University and all that a college town offers! It is also the commercial center and home to a thriving downtown with art walks, antique stores, farmer's market, restaurants and shopping.
For the outdoor enthusiast, there are a multitude of events to participate in or to observe ranging from white water rafting, zip-lining, skiing, hiking, biking, walking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, kite flying and more... A favorite is a short drive to Damascus, VA. Here you can rent a bike and ride the Virginia Creeper Trail, a 17 mile downhill bike ride, which crosses over old railroad trestle, rivers, streams and the Appalachian Trail.
For a slower pace, there are antique shops to explore, flowers to photograph and lakes to sit by and stick you feet in! Explore and experience all that the High Country offers...
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We live and work on Topsail Island, North Carolina. We love our salty air, sandy toes and all that the island lifestyle offers including sunsets, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing and walks on the beach. When we vacation, we'd always go to the mountains and we were fortunate enough to purchase a perfect, cozy getaway on Beech Mountain, our home away from home... We named the home Simply Serene as it truly offers the refuge from the hectic, busy daily schedule and all that owning a business at the beach entails. We love the peace and quiet of the woods, the natural beauty and changing seasons of the region, and the low-key lifestyle...
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We chose to purchase this home because it felt like home the minute we walked in (and we met the approval of the former owners who are now friends and loved the home as much as we do!)
