Our comfortable, family friendly, updated and remodeled home is ready for you to enjoy! Now is a wonderful time to enjoy the natural beauty of the mountain AND the many recreational opportunities available for our guests (tennis, golf, large heated pool, etc.) at the private Beech Mountain Club (see LINKS).

The entry to the home is just one step up from the upper parking area. We've added windows and sliding glass doors so that there is always great mountain scenery to enjoy from every room. We have also added a large dining room where your family and friends can gather -- and sometimes enjoy a glimpse of passing deer or wild turkeys from the windows! -- around a large table. The completely re-designed kitchen features top of the line cabinets, appliances and granite countertops and is fully stocked with china, glassware, cooking equipment, etc. There is additional seating on bar stools at the large, granite topped island.
The great room with cathedral ceiling has a two story high natural stone chimney. The easy to use gas logs in the fireplace are great for a chilly summer evening or cold winter night. It also has comfortable seating and a large flat screen TV with basic cable, DVD and VCR. The large deck across the front of the house has several seating areas and is a favorite place for watching and feeding birds, toasting magnificent sunsets, savoring the beauty of Autumn leaves in the North Carolina High Country or viewing the snow covered slopes of SkiBeech. The deck by the dining room on the back of the house where deer and wild turkeys sometimes parade by, has a large gas grill and additional outdoor seating. There is parking in a circular drive in front of the home as well as at the back.
The master suite (with queen bed and sliding doors opening to a private area of the front deck) has an up-to-date and spacious tiled bath featuring a 'spa' shower (with river rock floor) and dressing area with washer & dryer. Each of the other two main level bedrooms (one w/ double bed and one with twin beds) has a private bath (tub/shower) and sliding doors to decks. The loft room (3 single beds) reached by steps from the great room, is great for children or adults. It has a private bath w/tub, and there is a table for games.

Charter Hills Chalet, built as a ski chalet when the Beech Mountain resort was first developed, has been remodeled and expanded to become a warm and inviting family vacation home that is enjoyed by several genrations of our family in every season of the year. Thanksiving is a great time for a family get together, and June and July is an especially fun time for younger children to explore the mountain.
The unique mountain top location in the HighCountry of North Carolina provides access to many outdoor activities year round. And there are also many things to do in the surrounding Banne Elk, Boone, Blowing Rock, and Grandfather Mountain areas. It is a great place to enjoy being with family and friends!
SPRING is the time to enjoy wildflowers and walks in the woods; SUMMER brings the many activities at the Beech Mountain Club where our guests can enjoy the heated pool, golf, tennis and more; FALL is a glorious time to enjoy the spectacular fall foliage along the near by Blue Rideg Parkway and hiking on the many trails; WINTER brings the challenges of skiing at the Ski Beech Resort and fun of sledding on the town's special slope. HOLIDAYS are great times to gather with family and friends. The large, open dining room is a great place for family dining, and we love gathering around the large stone fireplace in the great room on cool nights (some in July!) to rest and relax in the evening.

Thanksgiving dinners are easy to prepare in the remodeled, fully furnished kitchen, and the comfortably furnished bedrooms are welcome retreats at the end of busy days.
