About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Cottage With Ski & Mountain Views

Location: BEECH MOUNTAIN, NC. Close to Blue Ridge Parkway, Banner Elk, Sugar Mt., Grandfather Mountain, Linville, Boone, and Blowing Rock, North Carolina.

Beech Mountain - The highest (5500 Feet) town east of the Mississippi! Our home has great ski slope views in the winter and lovely garden and mountain views in the summer. Beech Mountain Country Club access is available. You will have access to all the amenities at the Beech Mountain Country Club. Enjoy the Willard Bryd designed 18 hole championship golf course, Tennis courts, Pickleball, Heated Lap and Free-Form Swimming Pool, Play Ground, fitness center and top rated Club House Dining! Enjoy area attractions & the cool summer breezes of the Blue Ridge where temperatures rarely exceeds 80 degrees.

Access to ski slopes, sledding, ice skating etc. is about a mile to SKI BEECH Entrance.

Level parking (no steep driveway here!) and just a few steps to the front door.

Our home offers WIFI, free long distance calls, flat screen tvs, quality furnishings and linens and is fully equipped for your enjoyment. Features cathedral, beamed ceilings, stone gas fireplace, wet bar and a great deck with a gas grill. Lots of windows and light and bright throughout.

Each bedroom has private bathroom access. In the master bedroom, there is a towel warmer - nothing like a nice warm towel when you get out of the shower! Also useful for drying gloves, socks, etc.! You will wonder how you ever lived without one!

Located on a small circle in the middle, with very little traffic. Easy, level (for Beech Mountain :) ) access year round. NOTE: In the winter, the town of Beech Mountain requires snow tires or chains. There are two roads to our home, so access is never limited as it can be in other areas of Beech.

About Steve & Ann Jara

We love Beech Mountain! Our Families have been vacationing in the Mountains of North Carolina for over 50 years. When we first visited Beech Mountain 25 years ago on a ski trip, we fell in love with Beech. 15 years later we visited Beech to purchase a vacation home in the Mountains. When we visited 'On the Rocks' via internet, we knew this was going to be our Mountain Home. Named appropriately for the two large boulders in the front of the house, 'On the Rocks' has become much more than a home surrounded by rocks. This is a private home that we are excited to share with you. When you arrive and step into our home, you will feel at home yourself. We have made our cottage comfortable and warm. When we rent and stay in destinations, we expect special amenities and quality appointments which we have extended to you at 'On the Rocks'. Our children have grown up vacationing here in all the seasons and we hope you enjoy creating memories here as much as we have. We market the rentals ourselves and have a team of competent and local professionals to make sure the cottage is in great working order and extremely clean. This is our 2nd home which we use regularly and we hope you will treat it as your own 2nd home. Please call, email or text us if you have any questions about our cottage. We have furnished and decorated our cottage warmly and appointed it with mountain charm. If you have a special request or comment, please let us know. The Jara Family

Steve & Ann Jara purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Steve & Ann Jara chose Charter Hills

We chose 'On the Rocks' because of the easy access (two ways to get here), level parking, charm and the views! The location can't be beat - just a few minutes from the slopes, Fred's, Beech Mountain Golf Club.

What makes this cottage unique

Extremely clean and master bedroom had a very comfortable bed. Very convenient to good restaurants ,and saw deer and wildlife everyday. Million dollar view of the slopes just breath taking especially at night ! Easy access and level parking.The house and furniture are dated notability the living room sofa.Really enjoyed the gas fireplace and deck with grill!

Great location and value

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a bit small but the views and surroundings were excellent. We had four adults and two small children (4&6) there for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time.

Great Cabin. Beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is amazing, and the location even better. Deer and wildlife were everywhere. Stephen was a great host and very nice. The only issue, if you could even call it an issue, was it's not the best for a multiple couples trip. In that there are three bedrooms, one is the master, one had bunk beds and the other has two twin beds. Great if your a family with kids or just a group of friends.
