Why Brad chose Beech Mountain
This property is just a short drive to both Sugar and Beech Mt ski resorts. We have preferred Beech Mt ski resort because they have a high-speed quad lift that other ski resorts did not have until recently. The views are outstanding from the top of the Beech Mt ski resort and it's always Christmas time up here. Sugar Mt added a high speed lift and new ski run in the past 2 years and that has helped reduce crowding.
What makes this Apartment unique
We make the extra effort to ensure that you have a good time here in the Mountains and offer extras to save our guests money. There is a a supply of kids' winter apparel including gloves, ski pants, bibs, etc. that may fit your children and can save our Florida guests some money by not having to purchase clothing that will only be worn when you come skiing. There is a hot tub available for use as well along with sleds and snow blades available for our guests.

This is 2nd time my husband and I have stayed here. It is Amazing! So close to Beech ski resort. Although it's a condo, it was so quiet. We had no neighbors during both stays. Very clean and owner was very nice and went above and beyond accommodating us on short notice. Owner also has a beautiful apt near Banner Elk for rent. Will return again and again!! K. Sanford NC
Perfect Beech Mtn. Ski Spot
Dates: 2/13 - 2/17/14
Number in party: 5 (2 Adult males, 3 Youth males [ages 7, 9 and 12])
After driving right past the well marked turn, we arrived @ the condo and were pleasantly surprised to find 2 snow shovels ready (located in the closet just inside the front door) to help us dig away the 12+ inches of freshly fallen snow. It was President's Day Weekend, the busiest weekend of the year for Ski Beech, and the perfect time to get in a long awaited ski vacation.
Upon entering, you have a small vestibule (to park your snow boots) with an aforementioned coat/snow shovel/snow sled closet. A bedroom is located just ahead on the right (full size bed) with ample dresser/closet space and a 20" (or so) flat-screened TV. [Queen sized inflatable bed available in closet - Pump located in snow shovel closet]. Just down the hall is the stacked high-capacity washer/dryer combo (in as-new shape), the second bedroom (again with full-sized bed, ample dresser and closet space, 15" or so TV), and @ the end of the hall was a full bathroom.
At the front door, just off the entry, are the ascending stairs to the upper living space. There is a 1/2 bath (toilet, no shower/tub) @ the top of the stairs - And while, initially, I felt a little disappointed that there wasn't a second shower, it really was never an issue (especially with 5 guys) - But the second toilet WAS needed. Thank God it was there!
The living space was charming, accented by the "old-school" stove-pipe freestanding fireplace - The furniture was a little small for our party of 5, but we managed quite nicely. There is a small round table just off the living area that seats 4. We used this as our dining area (well, 4 of us did - which was fine because the kitchen had 2 built in bar-height counter seats for the adults to use).
The kitchen was nicely stocked with pots/pans/utensils/etc. We brought all our food and cooked every morning and night - We never lacked for a thing.
The condo is less than 1/2 mile from the slopes, though I can't imagine walking.
The owner, Bruce, is just great and very accommodating to our requests.
You need to check out Fred's Mercantile on top of 1 of the hills - Nice folks - Good prices for last minute items (ski masks, neck/lower face warmers, gloves, etc.) Remember that air-mattress I mentioned earlier? It took 4 "D" size batteries - DON"T get them from Fred's...$12/4 pack. But Bruce reimbursed me - Told you he was great!
The kitchen upstairs
Nice little condo
The condo was very clean and well appointed. The owner provides almost everything you would need including plenty of very dry firewood. The condo is cozy and a family of 4 with grown kids just fit although it was tight. Everything was in good working order from dishwasher to washer/drier and the owner brought up a crock pot and waffle maker while we were there. Owner was very hands on and checked on us several times on day of arrival and throughout the stay.
Easy to get to, just off beech mtn pkwy, but not really walking distance from slopes if one is carrying boots, poles, skis, and there is snow. Snow plows always clear the roads well up to Ski Beech and the condo is on the cleared side so it's an easy 5 minute drive as advertised.
No wi-fi in the house, and unless you have verizon, you're going to be out of touch.
There's tubing at several of the ski resorts and at Hawksnest or Jonas Ridge. You can sled at the property or go to the top of Beech Mt with the sleds that are provided.
