Double eating, living, and play space (2 Living Rooms, 2 Kitchens, 2 Decks) make this a perfect home for 2 small families or 1 large family with teenagers. (Please contact me if you are interested in renting only 1 floor of the home - anytime except holidays and weekends during peak season). This house is decorated with motivating photos of skiers, boarders, and climbers and has 13 ceiling-to-floor windows and 2 large decks. This creates a feeling of being in the middle of a large playground...which you are.
This quiet home, high in the trees, is less than 2 miles from Beech Mountain ski slopes, the golf course and clubhouse, tennis courts, heated Olympic swimming pool, fitness center, and recreation center with kids programs. There are also nearby hiking and biking trails.
If you prefer a more relaxing vacation at the home, the upstairs has a living room with fireplace and TV/DVD player with a selection of DVD's, board games, and wi-fi internet service. The dining room has seating for 6 guests and the kitchen is well-equiped with cookware and dining ware. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and glass door entrance to the deck. There is also a twin bedroom upstairs. The upstairs deck has a charcoal grill and casual seating for 6. This deck has a gate at the stairs to keep a dog or small kids out of trouble and there is a dog house at the back of the wrap-around.
The upstairs and downstairs share an entrance from outside and a mudroom, but each have a private, secure entrance off the mudroom. The downstairs has a living room with fireplace, futon, bumper pool table, TV/DVD player, and a selection of DVDs and board games as well. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator, two-burner stove, micro-wave, and full range of cooking and dining ware. The kitchen table seats 4. Also downstairs are a bedroom with a queen bed, a bedroom with twin beds, and a bathroom. The downstairs deck has a large swing on it.
This home is one of the original built on Beech Mountain - with a classic octagonal shape and high tongue-in-groove ceilings supported by large beams. It has been remodeled - with new windows, new paint, a new heat/air conditioning/dehumidification system, new mattresses and box springs on all beds, new appliances, new granite counter tops, and a new hardwood floor and carpeting upstairs. It feels light and airy. It is well-furnished, and relaxing. Moreover, we have updated it with modern conveniences - we have wi-fi, a network extender which enables you to have cell service where you otherwise would not have service, and two new TVs -one a smart TV, and the other with a Roku box, which enable you to get Netflicks, Hulu and other movie providers.
Beech Mountain, at 5.506', is the highest ski resort in Eastern America - with the highest temperatures in the 70's, it is a great escape from summer heat too. In winter, there skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and ice skating - all within 2 miles of our home. In summer, our Beech Mountain Club membership allows our guests access to swimming, tennis, golf, and the fitness and recreation centers and programs - again, all within 2 miles of our house.
We have enjoyed growing up in this home and hope that you will find it a great base for your adventures on Beech Mountain

About the owner: Growing up, I worked on ski patrol at Beech Mountain during the winter and at the tennis courts and recreation center during the summer. I went to the NC Outward Bound School, took up whitewater kayaking and climbing, and became a mountain guide for the American Alpine Institute. I still have many friends and connections on Beech Mountain and in the area - who are a great resource.
Why the Owner Chose Beech Mountain, NC, USA:
My parents chose to build on Beech Mountain because it offered the best skiing in the South. Ski Beech is still the best and over the years, has developed as an exceptional vacation resort for the spring, summer, and fall seasons as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is a particularly inspiring place to stay for 3 reasons: 1) I have lined up discounts with local outfitters, guides, and shops for my guests 2) the home is decorated with professional photos of people engaged in outdoor activities 3)it sits high up in the trees so from the second floor deck, it feels like you are up in a tree house - fun!
