About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-14)

Welcome to Beech Mountain, a MAGICAL place to be during the summer. Our temperatures really don't get past 75 degrees, infact your golf game is FREE at the Club if the temp exceeds 79 ! The scenes are spectacular and the views add to the wonder of this unique town. With that said.. YOUR GREAT VACATION STARTS HERE! Our tastefully decorated cabin has 3,000 sq. ft. of living space for your family and friends to enjoy. We are nestled in on over acres of wooded forest on beautiful Beech Mt. It is serene, peaceful, quiet and has a complete wrap around deck for you to enjoy all the beautiful scenes and sounds of nature. While on deck relax in the 4 person hot tub or rock in the rocking chairs wrapped up in a soft blanket with a cup of hot chocolate. There you can breath in cool, crisp, clean mountain air that not only clears your lungs, but also relaxes and clears your mind! Either way you can take pleasure in the quiet natural surroundings of the Great Blue Ridge Mountains.

Conveniently located just 2.3 miles to ski slopes, 4 miles to Freds (general store, food) and 1 mile to the Buckeye Rec Center. As our guest for only $5 pp you can utilize this facility which offers endless activities for the entire family. This is a must do, visit their website.

Our cabin is family oriented and kid friendly with lots of things to do.

The LOWER level is a gamers paradise, brand new with a huge game room consisting of a 50' plasma flat screen tv, plush 9 seater sectional with queen pull out sofa bed,,movie library, reading library, lots of family board games,air hockey, and a full size slate pool table. There is a bedroom complete with twin/full size bunkbeds and a full bath.

The MAIN level consists of two bedrooms. Each bedroom is beautifully decorated in rustic decor and has KING size beds with a Plush Orthopedic Pillow Top Mattress. The master suite has a Jacuzzi tub and an new 32' plasma flat screen tv. The master suite has French doors that exit out onto the spacious wrap around deck (where the HOT TUB is). It has a very large full kitchen with stainless steel appliances also including a toaster, blender, coffee maker, microwave, dishes, pots, pans, utensils etc. Inside the living room, you'll enjoy curling up on one of the soft comfortable couches (one a queen pullout sofa)in front of a warm fire in the rustic fireplace, or you can read, snooze, or watch tv on the plasma flat screen, or simply gaze off in the distance and enjoy the view looking out the four large picture windows.

The LOFT level is the third level and it is a cute and cozy room ideal for kids. It has a queen bed and a fold out futon and it's own complete bathroom.

In the GARAGE you can park your car, motorcyles, jetskis, or small boat.

Outside the cabin there is even lots to do. It has a huge lot for plenty of parking and is flat for you to put up a badmitton, volleyball net and have some family fun! After your game, get out the hotdogs and s'more's and toast'em up in the FIREPIT adjacent to the cabin, and don't forget your guitar, you might want to drum up a little mountain music around the fire. Oops, and I forgot to mention, the walking and nature trails start right out our back door.

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

Why Laura Watren chose Banner Elk

Beech mountain is so gorgeous with so many things to do. Each season offers various activities. We love to hike, ski, boat, motorcycle, and here you can do it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our stay on your beautiful property. It felt like our own private retreat. We made it to a couple of wineries, the Grandfather Mountain State Park, shops in Blowing Rock, and several tasty area restaurants. It was a wonderful anniversary celebration, and we hope to return next year. Thanks for allowing us to reschedule our dates. We really appreciate it!

This cabin delivered more than it promised

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin over a weekend for four couples with four kids of various ages, eldest at 6years. The weather was predicted to be inclement, so we were planning to stay mostly indoors. The first look at the cabin was inside of the cabin as we all reached late evening, and couldn't really see around it. We were very pleased with the space and decor, also there was sufficient arrangement for all of us to accommodate. Kids loved the play area downstairs and most of the time all of us were hanging in the lower level.

In the morning, when we checked the outside, we were pleasantly surprised by its serene surrounding and beautiful fall colors. We enjoyed the hot tub, even in the cold and sparse showers and used the grill at the end of the deck. The deck is very nice and we wished we had little better weather to enjoy it more. But we are not complaining, because we will visit again soon to enjoy the deck... lolz.

Thank you Laura for your help in booking and making sure that the arrangements were done for us. We had awesome time and none us wanted to leave.

We've found a perfect place to spend time in the woods, we will be coming back soon.

Well away from the beaten path. Very spacious and clean. Beautiful wooded view (mountains are through the woods). Game tables were awesome. Perfect for a family getaway!

Spring break escape

  • 5 of 5

So sad that we have to leave in the morning! If you didn't have someone coming tomorrow I might try to talk the hubby into staying another day!

Thank you so much for everything! We have shopped (the Mast General Store on multiple occassions), hiked, went to Linville Falls, Blowing Rock, had air hockey tournaments, drove the Parkway twice, and we are finishing up our nightly game of cards right now. Tonight we had dinner at the Pedalin' Pig and brought banana pudding back to eat while playing cards. Yum! We love BBQ - wish that your place had been open!

The layout worked out great. Our son loved it dowstairs. Our daughter loved the loft. My mom came down from Ohio and stayed with us until Monday morning. It was perfect.

The house is definitely secluded, but we have gotten used to the drive! I posted several pictures online and have had several friends ask for information. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Thanks again for everything!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was spacious, clean, and in a great location! It is well-designed for families to share living space. It very comfortably sleeps 12, and the kids can be entertained for hours in the lowest level. The showers had great water pressure, and the linens were crisp and clean. It was easy to find and was close to skiing, restaurants, the grocery store, and the quaint town of Banner Elk. The owners are the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Excellent Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Laura for sharing your home with our family. We appreciate all the help and information you provided in order for us to plan our trip. We felt right at home the moment we walked in the door. The home was spacious enough to accommodate our entire family comfortably whether we wanted to be together as a family or we wanted quiet time alone. The view was breathtaking and we were lucky to get snow during our trip.
