About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 PET FRIENDLY


This cozy 4 bedroom/3 bath home is under new ownership and located within walking distance of the ski slopes through the path (226 feet) or down the backyard into the new Terrain Park, hiking trails (.3 miles), dog park (across from Fred's), various restaurants, and Fred's General Mercantile (.5 miles). Once you arrive, you can relax and put the car keys away! Two parking spaces are conveniently located right outside the house.

The upper level of the home consists of one bedroom with bunk beds and a full bathroom. The loft has a brand new flip game table that allows you to play pool or air hockey! The lower level has two bedrooms with a queen size bed each that share Jack and Jill bathroom. The master bedroom in on the other side of the lower level and has its own bathroom. The living room has a gas fireplace with a couch and love seat as well as a comfy rocking chair. A stack-able washer and dryer can be found in the utility closet right off the kitchen, which has been recently updated and is fully stocked. The mudroom is right off the kitchen with a door that leads to the fenced-in doggy area (there's even a doggy door) . No more freezing morning walks to take the dogs out - you can just supervise them from the warmth of the mudroom or kitchen windows.

As you exit from the living room area, there is large deck area with a 5person hot-tub and gas BBQ for everyone to enjoy. A bird feeder attracts some of the most beautiful birds in the area.

For activities other than SKIING and/or MOUNTAIN BIKING, exit the neighborhood on Skiway Road and take a short walk on the wide shoulder of Highway 184 to Overlook Trail, a .4 moderate HIKE that ends in Perry Park. There you can picnic while taking in the beauty of the waterfall and pond. If you cross Tamarack Road across from Perry Park, you can begin Upper Pond Creek Trail called Beech Mountain's favorite trail, a one mile easy hike ending in Lake Coffey. This can easily turn into a full day of family fun!

A half-mile walk to Fred's for a quick lunch of their famous Chili will have you ready to cross Highway 184 for a visit to the recently built DOG PARK! Two large running areas are available for small and large dogs as well as sitting areas for owners to relax and take in the view.

Ready for an afternoon of ZIP LINING, TUBING, or RAFTING? A short 17 mile drive to Hawksnest or 25 miles to Boone, will have you on an adventure ride of a lifetime. How about HORSEBACK RIDING? Banner Elk Stables are 8.5 miles away from your doorstep and are open year-round. On the way back from riding, a quick stop at the TROUT FARMS on NC-105, will ensure a great ending to a fun-filled day.


Beech Mountain Resort now has a state-of-the-art snowtubing park. Located in the alpine village at the base of the slopes, the park has runs that stretch 750 feet and offer sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. No lift ticket is required for tubing. Once riders reach the bottom, the Magic Carpet conveyor quickly returns them to the top. The cost is $25 on weekdays and $30 on weekends and holidays. Sessions last one hour and 45 minutes.

About Betty Trueba

Carlos and Betty have been married 34 years, have two wonderful daughters, and look forward to being grandparents this fall. They have both been avid skiers but due to a knee injury a few years back, Betty pursues her other passions - road cycling and mountain biking, Skis, Pedals, 'n Paws allows them to be close to their hobbies as well as have their beloved American Bulldogs - Junior and Mimi, along for the fun.

Betty Trueba purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Betty Trueba chose Blue Ridge Mountains

North Carolina has always tugged at their hearts having visited the area often with their family. This past winter, after visiting the vacant lot they own in RiverBend at Lake Lure, Carlos and Betty decided it was time to build the cabin of their dreams. They continued their Christmas vacation to Beech Mountain discussing their plans and stayed at the Treehouse Condominiums near Kick Turn Lane. They had visited this area before and had even vacationed in the cabin nearest the slopes in 2005. While going through a real estate brochure, Betty found that 106 was on sale and the rest is history. They were able to do a quick walk through and immediately upon their return to Miami, decided to purchase the cabin, realizing this was their dream home and location. Eager to share in their good fortune, the Truebas have opened their home to other families and guests looking to enjoy the beauty of North Carolina.

What makes this cabin unique

Ski, Pedals 'n Paws offers the best of all worlds . Enjoy all the outdoor activities close by and then come home and relax by the fire. Best of all, your pets will always be welcome regardless of breed, since Betty is often fosters and rescues dogs back in Miami.

Wonderful dog friendly rental for vacation

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I traveled to Beech Mountain for the Fourth of July and Highland Games event at Grandfather Mountain with our parents and dogs. We were thrilled to find a rental cabin willing to accept our three dogs (most are either pet-free or have limited reqs for size and number of pets). The owner was very responsive to our inquiries and eventual booking. The cabin is located seconds (by car) away from the Beech Mountain center, and the amazing dog park. Further, a one-two minute walk to the ski slopes, where during the summer you can hike up or down the mountain. While the cabin was somewhat dated, the overall feel is very comfortable, with plenty of space for the four of us and three pups. Beds were extremely comfortable, though one complaint from our parents was that there was no TV in guest rooms other than master and bunk beds on second floor. Though this may not be an issue for all guests. The kitchen was fully stocked, reducing the need to eat out of every meal. Overall, we had an amazing week and the cabin met all of our needs. Thank you for having a great, pet friendly cabin for our family vacation.

This house is fantastic! Beautifully decorated and cozy with all the comforts anyone could possibly want. The new hot tub worked wonders after a day of skiing and hiking. The location is to die for with snow boarding and skiing a very short walk out the front door. Not only is this house pet friendly, the pet rules are such that it keeps the place neat and clean for people that don't have pets. The owner is responsive and cares about your stay. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

Well equiped but older

  • 5 of 5

Mrs. Betty was most attentive before and during our stay. We stayed during February to ski and it was into the 20's some nights. There were some issues with heat, but Mrs. Betty got us help. We love how close the house is to the slopes and the hot tub was refreshing. Hope we get to return next year.

great location

  • 4 of 5

House was in great location and was fully stocked with everything you would need and clean...Rated 4 star because of fireplace not working and if you turned the heat up in the main room the bedrooms were very hot if the fireplace would have been working that may have helped in keeping the rooms cooler while heating the main living area...Owners were very nice and sent in a portable heater to help.

Snowboard Park In the Back Yard

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful Xmas vacation in this house. Have been coming to Beech for over 15 yrs. but this has been the best house ever. The location can't be better, within walking distance to numerous Restaurants, Fred grocery store and Ski Rental equipment. Close to and easy access to the main road and beautiful pond with Koi as you approach the property. The back deck overlooks the Snowboarding park with beautiful views and a great Jacuzzi to relax after an active day. You have everything you need if you decide to stay in and cook. Is a very confortable house.

We will keep coming to this house every year, just Love it.

Recommend it highly for sking, biking, hiking or site seeing. Lots of things to do and see around.

To top it off this is a Pet friendly house, so you can take your four legged kids on vacation as well.

Hope everyone will enjoy it as much as we did.
