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 Beech Mountain
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.

Great change of scenery for us!
Hiking , snowboarding, sledding. Beech Mountain is great!
The perfect location. We fed the deer right in the backyard. Lots of wildlife, good restaurants,And enjoyed hiking as well.
Thank you Debbie! So glad you enjoyed!
We had a wonderful stay ‘On The Rocks!’
Upon arrival we were very pleased with the level parking and the charming appearance of the home. The home was very clean, and obviously well kept. Very convenient to skiing, hiking trails, and plenty of restaurants and wineries in Banner Elk. The only downfall about this home is the size of the kitchen, there was only two of us in our party so it wasn’t a problem but I could see it presenting a problem for a larger group. Overall, we were very pleased with our visit, we enjoyed sipping wine on the deck taking in the wonderful views and the wildlife as well as the coziness of the fireplace and the woodsy decor of the family room. Thanks again for sharing your home away from home with us!
Thank you! So glad you enjoyed your stay!
Fun family time
My family really enjoyed our winter break at "On the Rocks" and Beech Mountain. The house was clean, cozy and spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the wet bar was an added bonus. Beds were comfortable, linens and towels were plump, bunk beds were great for the grand kids, and wifi/tv/dvd kept the nerds in the family happy too! We skied two days at nearby Beech Mountain. Owners responded to emails promptly. We want to return in the spring when there will be less fog, sunshine and flowers blooming!
Great accommodations and location for a ski weekend getaway!!
Great accommodations and location for a ski weekend getaway with family/friends! Minutes away from the slopes. Views were awesome! Owners very gracious and timely with replies to any inquiries. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much for staying with us Kelly! We are glad you enjoyed and invite you back anytime. - Steve & Ann
Wonderful week "On The Rocks"!!
We had an excellent stay here! We were lucky enough to get 18+ inches of perfect fluffy snow! Kids LOVED it! We went sledding in town and at the house, made a dozen snowmen (and snowwomen), snow angels, snow fort, had snowball fights, went hiking on the nearby trails and saw a ton of deer! Grandfather mountain was unbelievable! The kids loved gem mining! The house was very comfortable. All the amenities needed were there, including a Keurig and crock pot which made my wife's day! Plenty of sheets, towels, blankets and sleeping space. We loved the AMAZING view we had of the mountains! Most restaurants in Beech mountain were closed as we were here at the tail end of ski season but banner elk had plenty of great ones open, grocery store was 15 min away and fully stocked and Fred's had everything we needed quickly. Streets were plowed quickly and only had to use snow chains once. Access to the house is superb and directions are easy. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you for sharing your place with us!
