About Laura Watren
We are Larry, Laura and Selleck Watren and live in Lake Mary, Florida. It was love at first sight when we drove through Beech Mountain last December. The snow was spectacular hanging on the huge evergreen trees, it was like a winter wonderland. I couldn't stop taking pictures, one scene was better than the next. Soon we found ourself at the real estate office looking at properties, I guess the rest is history. Just when I thought, things couldn't get any prettier than that, FALL came and whew, now I think that's my favorite time up there. Anytime, any season, you will thoroughly enjoy this beautiful place called Beech Mountain.
Laura Watren purchased this Cabin in 2010

Good for a large group, especially with kids
This house is comfortable and it does have a lot of sleeping and hanging-out options, making it a good option for a large group and/or a group with kids. (It also has ample space for parking multiple vehicles. And lots of bathrooms!) It was nothing fancy, but it was spacious, and the kitchen and dining area worked well for us to cook one meal (our check-in instructions advised us to bring a lot of stuff with us, including dish soap and salt and pepper). My only complaints would be that there were some bugs in the sinks and one bathtub when we checked in (but you are in the middle of the woods), it was FREEZING (like, the heat was off and it was 30 degrees outside) when we checked in, there were some items (from prior guests???) such as men's jeans and socks on the floor in one of the rooms (just made us question the cleaning crew), and the upstairs loft area made it SUPER loud for those staying in the room directly below it. (Just don't set up your sleeping baby in there, as I did. Every foot step or even pin drop from above sounded like a stomp.) Also, I would advise those with kids to bring some DVDs because there weren't a lot of options for kids and we had some trouble with the TV (also it has limited channels when it was working). But I don't think these were anything too troublesome; just giving a heads up for the owner and future renters. Overall, it was a very good experience for us!
My family and 3 other friends/families stayed in Laura's home last weekend. The home is very well maintained, and had plenty of room for all of us. We had a blast, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for us all. Thank you Laura!
