Sitting at over 5000 feet, enjoy the serenity of the Western Carolina Mountains, where ”Beauty” meets the “Beech.” Beech Mountain offers some of the most breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Located just 30 miles east of the Tennessee border, Beech Mountain is home to Eastern America’s highest ski resort – Ski Beech. Beech Mountain has the unique characteristic of being an “all-season” get-away. If you’re looking for skiing, hiking, rafting, biking, fishing, viewing fall colors, or just relaxing - Beech Mountain is the place to do it.
Built in 2007, “Beauty and the Beech” offers a spacious two level home, with 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and a spectacular view of Ski Beech Resort right off the back deck of the house. Everything in this home is brand new. In addition to the local area attractions, there is nearby access to the new Buckeye Recreation Center which offers outdoor tennis courts, outdoor walking track, indoor gym, conference area, and small lake for boating and fishing.
While visiting Beech Mountain, be sure to check out some nearby favorite attractions such as Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain or Linville Caverns - to name a few.
I have been with one of the larger financial institutions in the Charlotte area for over 14 years. While working at a different financial institution, my husband started his own construction business approximately 11 years ago and went out on his own. We have always had a passion for real estate - acquiring properties, flipping and renting - this is what we do in our free time.
My husband was first introduced to Beech Mountain through a customer - who eventually turned out to be very good friends of ours. They had purchased a vacation home in Beech Mountain that required some renovations. The customer asked if my husband would be willing to drive to Beech Mountain to complete the work? He agreed to do it, and before we knew it, he was heading up to Beech Mountain toward the end of a week, and our two boys and I, would follow a day later to join him and spend the rest of weekend there together. It was love at first sight. We absolutely fell in love with Beech Mountain immediately. We had continued with this routine a number of times and became very familiar with Beech Mountain, and all that it had to offer. We had always had a long term goal of purchasing a vacation home in either the mountains or at the beach - so we began our search - and it didn't take long to find our home. We figured we got the best of both worlds in buying a vacation home in "Beech" Mountain. We refer to our house at Beech Mountain as the "Beech House." There always seemed to be something for us to do at Beech Mountain, regardless of the time of year. For us, that was the best benefit of all in purchasing a vacation home at Beech Mountain.
Beech Mountain is truly an all season get-away. We have enjoyed all 4 seasons at Beech Mountain. Skiing, snowboarding and sledding are our winter-time favorites. The "colors" in the fall are spectacular - the view off the back of our deck looks right at Ski Beech Resort - and to the right is the Tennessee border. The summer and spring times are just as nice, as there are several hiking trails that we enjoy taking - our favorite is the Lower Pond Creek Trail - it runs along side a beautiful mountain stream - and some fantastic waterfalls to see along the way. My all time favorite activity is sitting on the deck in the warmer weather, with my morning coffee - looking out at the mountain - nothing is more peaceful and relaxing to me. In the colder months, I enjoy my coffee while sitting inside the Great Room, with the spacious windows off the back of the house, allowing me the same majestic view.
The Town of Beech Mountain has much to offer, including a variety of activities and festivals throughout the year.
