About the property

3 bed/2 bath Remodeled Home with Spectacular Sunsets! WIFI!

Our home will no doubt delight you in the details. Whether you want to ski your heart out or cuddle up and read your book while gazing at the gorgeous view-- our home will provide the perfect getaway for you and your family. We bought this home in 2010 because we fell in love with what was advertised as a 'Million Dollar View'. Boy, were they right!! The sunset is awe inspiring. We gutted the house, built an addition to double the size of the home-- and now bring our 3 kids to enjoy skiing, sledding, and mountain hiking.

Now to the details:

Our home can accommodate 7 people. The Master bedroom has a super comfortable king size bed-- with his and hers mattresses to promote a peaceful night of sleep. A new flatscreen TV and ensuite bathroom provide a chance to sneak away for quiet time and relaxation.

One guest bedroom has 1 Queen bed and 1 Twin with a TV. One guest bedroom has 1 Queen bed.

The open living plan has a large dining table with 8 chairs, bar with 3 stools, and a dual fireplace viewed from both the eating area and the living room. The living room is very comfortable and steps out onto our enclosed sunroom for wonderful afternoon relaxation. The back deck has comfortable rockers and an electric grill. Drink your coffee or wine on the deck and watch the sun rise or set. AMAZING VIEWS!

For summertime guests, please note that our home as well as most properties on the mountain do not have air conditioning. The temperatures during the day are usually in the upper 60s/low 70s and may occasionally get up to the mid/upper 70s on certain days. The temperature can get quite cold in the evenings. Our guests love to open all of the windows in the summer and enjoy the cool breezes from outside. There are floor fans in the closets and a large ceiling fan in the living area of the house.

Our entire home is on 1-level, which is great for people that find it tough climbing stairs. We have off-street parking for 2 vehicles, and there are about 6 steps down onto the walkway to our front door. For wintertime guests, please know that Beech Mountain requires that you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle during the winter months. They do plow the roads frequently during snowfall, but please do not attempt driving up the mountain during the winter without the appropriate vehicle.

We love kids! In the master bedroom closet we keep a pack n play for your baby needs.

About Julianne Taylor

While living abroad due to hubby's career, we decided to buy a property in the mountains that we call 'home'. Now settled in S. Carolina, this is a perfect getaway anytime of year. The 'Mrs.' is a professional interior designer, and gutting and remodeling this home was fun project!

Julianne Taylor purchased this house in 2010

Why Julianne Taylor chose Blue Ridge Mountains

After years of looking for just the perfect place-- we found our little 'Million Dollar View' in one of those Real Estate magazines. Althought the property initially needed a lot of work-- we couldn't pass up the view. It truly is magical. The property had wonderful bones, and we knew with a full renovation-- we could make this property something really specialy for our family and hopefully yours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! Our family has been coming up to Beech Mtn for years, and this is by FAR the most beautiful home we have stayed in. We did not expect to walk in and find such a gorgeous home. Fantastic job on the remodel of this home-- we will be back next year for sure. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation with our family.

We jad a very nice time enjoying the cool weather in August at this well equipped, easily accessed home. Plenty of room and the mountain view is worth every penny.

Quick getaway

  • 5 of 5

Popped up to Beech for the weekend and it was glorious! Went from 95 degrees at home to 72 on the mountain...aahhh! Been to this house before and love it! Comfortable, convenient, and a beautiful sunset view! Julianne is great and easy to work with. She was so kind to wave the pet fee since we didn't bring our pooch this time. Will go back!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The home is decorated and furnished beautifully. It is obvious that the owner is an interior designer based on the attention to detail. The home has everything you need from two types of coffee makers to very nice bedding and linens. The view is spectacular when you are standing on the deck. Its a little harder to fully see when you are sitting, but its probably just time for the trees to be trimmed down a bit. I would definitely recommend this home if you are visiting Beech Mountain.

Tucked away from busy traffic, high on the mountain with gorgeous views. Enough room for family and friends to stay with us on and off throughout our stay. Went walking every day and enjoyed the cool mountain air.

Great stay for a weekend ski trip and it really is a million dollar view!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location to ski at Beech. The owners set you up with all the essentials that you need for a great stay. They owners are easy to contact via voice or text message to answer any questions you might have. The home was spacious enough for a family of six to not be right on top of each other. Would definitely try to stay there again.
