This beautiful condo is in the perfect area on Beech Mountain. It is at a high altitude affording amazing views above the treetops. Beech Mountain Ski Resort is only a half mile away and walking distance for the young and hardy. There are 7 lifts and 15 trails. The Beech Mountain Resort has been one of the most popular ski destinations on the east coast for 45 years. The elevation and snow-making capabilities make it some of the best skiing in the Carolinas. The ski village has everything one could need both for skiers and non-skiers including a lodge, restaurants, shopping and ice skating.
From our condo, a beautiful 3 mile drive takes you to the city of Beech Mountain's Buckeye Lake Recreation Center providing fitness classes, hiking trails to falls, a running trail with lake views, weight training, fitness classes of all types including 2 kinds of yoga, basketball, cardio equipment, a library and daily activities for kids, teens and adults.
Enjoying Beech Mountain means enjoying it's beauty. Hiking trails are all over Beech Mountain. A visit to Lake Coffey Park includes a lake trail and fishing pier. From there you can take the Upper Pond Creek trail or more challenging Lower Pond Creek trail as you immerse yourself in hikes full of streams, rapids and boulder view spots surrounded by beech trees, evergreens with the occasional glimpses of wildlife. Just walk out the front door of the condo and go for a walk and you will see vistas, deer and enjoy the fresh quiet serene beauty of the top of Beech. Beech Mountain has plenty of restaurants ranging from the family friendly pizza place to the charming and 5 star quality romantic spot. Fred;s Mercantile is nearby to get that quick meal, provisions and bottle of wine.
At the bottom of the mountain is the charming college town of Banner Elk. It offers a dozens of restaurants including my favorite 'Frogs and Monkeys', shopping, theater, churches, a winery complete with tours and excursion companies offering whitewater rafting, tubing, caving and winter sports and sleigh rides. All this is within 15 minutes of the condo. Highway 194 in Banner Elk leads the way to one of the most scenic drives in America: The drive to Valle Crucis is sheer beauty and charm where many a visitor enjoys the stop to tour historical Mast General Store. Mast General Store is full of fun for everyone and there is always something going on with musicians or festivals to make it worth the drive.
Winters are full of snow and crystal beauty. Summers are cool. As soon as you climb the mountain, you forget the steaming hot temperatures of whereto you came. There are activities every week on Beech including kite festivals, bike races and renown music festivals. The town has put together so many activities for all ages, there is always a list of things to do to fill in your time. My favorites are hiking, outdoor yoga, fishing, rafting, golf and tennis. There are so many activities for children they can look forward to hay rides, arts and crafts and swimming. Cool days and nights with fresh mountain air, windows wide open and beauty everywhere you look.

Why Beech Mountain, NC, USA:
Our family is based in Florida and we wanted a retreat from the heat and the experience of the seasons for our entire family to enjoy. The times we spend here brings us all together. When we walked in the door and saw the view stretching for as far as the eye can see, left to right, we were stunned. There is something special about moving around in this space always knowing the great expanse is all around you. We liked the peacefulness of living at the higher elevations of Beech Mountain. We also loved the condo setting with some people around to get to know. Yet, this condo does not feel like a condo at all. It is an end unit and the soaring ceilings and two levels make it feel like a single family home. Having a condo setting makes locking up easy with property managers to keep an eye on the unit for us.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Beech Mountain is charming and the only city at such a high elevation on the east coast. The town does so much to offer amenities and everything is very upscale centered around the Beech Mountain Club. The road to our unit is paved all the way and very well kept. When you enter Squirrel Lane, the road becomes gravel. Squirrel Lane has a cute little park as you enter the street. You will see a small building that says 'Northridge Villas' and you park there and walk down from there to our unit and up the stairs to the front door. It is close to everything, yet far away. It is nice just to walk around the villas themselves and the streets nearby up to sunset park. You can have as much activity as you want or no activity. The unit is very clean and comfortable with everything in mind to anticipate your needs. It feels like a special home, not a hotel room. It is your cabin in the woods get away.
