DOUBLE THE FUN - TWO HOMES IN ONE - 2 KITCHENS, 2 LARGE DECKS, 2 FIREPLACES

Beech Mountain House Rental Photos and Description

4BR/2BA (2kitchens,2 living rooms,2 decks)

*SPECIAL WEEKLY RATES - 20% DISCOUNT. ASK ABOUT SUMMER MONTHLY SPECIALS.

Double eating, living, and play space (2 Living Rooms, 2 Kitchens, 2 Decks) make this a perfect home for 2 small families or 1 large family with teenagers. (Please contact me if you are interested in renting only 1 floor of the home - anytime except holidays and weekends during peak season). This house is decorated with motivating photos of skiers, boarders, and climbers and has 13 ceiling-to-floor windows and 2 large decks. This creates a feeling of being in the middle of a large playground...which you are.

This quiet home, high in the trees, is less than 2 miles from Beech Mountain ski slopes, the golf course and clubhouse, tennis courts, heated Olympic swimming pool, fitness center, and recreation center with kids programs. There are also nearby hiking and biking trails.

If you prefer a more relaxing vacation at the home, the upstairs has a living room with fireplace and TV/DVD player with a selection of DVD's, board games and wi-fi internet service. The dining room has seating for 6 guests and the kitchen is well-equiped with cookware and dining ware. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and glass door entrance to the deck. There is also a twin bedroom upstairs. The upstairs deck has a charcoal grill and casual seating for 6. This deck has a gate at the stairs to keep a dog or small kids out of trouble and there is a dog house at the back of the wrap-around.

The upstairs and downstairs share an entrance from outside and a mudroom, but each have a private, secure entrance off the mudroom. The downstairs has a living room with fireplace, futon, TV/DVD player, and a selection of DVDs and board games as well. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator, two-burner stove, micro-wave, and full range of cooking and dining ware. The kitchen table seats 4. Also downstairs are a bedroom with a queen bed, a bedroom with twin beds, and a bathroom. The downstairs deck has a large swing on it.

This home is one of the original built on Beech Mountain - with a classic octagonal shape and high tongue-in-groove ceilings supported by large beams. It is being offered for rent for the first time. With new windows, new paint, a new heat/air conditioning/dehumidification system, and a superb housekeeper, it feels light and airy. It is well-furnished, and relaxing. Moreover, we have updated it with modern conveniences - we have wi-fi, a network extender which enables you to have cell service even without a smart phone, and two new TVs -one a smart TV, and the other with a Roku box, which enable you to get Netflicks, Hulu and other movie providers.

Beech Mountain, at 5.506', is the highest ski resort in Eastern America - with the highest temperatures in the 70's, it is a great escape from summer heat too. In winter, there skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and ice skating - all within 2 miles of our home. In summer, our Beech Mountain Club membership allows our guests access to swimming, tennis, golf, and the fitness and recreation centers and programs - again, all within 2 miles of our house.

We have enjoyed growing up in this home and hope that you will find it a great base for your adventures on Beech Mountain

Growing up, I worked on ski patrol at Beech Mountain during the winter and at the tennis courts and recreation center during the summer. I went to the NC Outward Bound School, took up whitewater kayaking and climbing, and became a mountain guide for the American Alpine Institute. I still have many friends and connections on Beech Mountain and in the area - who are a great resource.

kitty calhoun purchased this house in 1973

My parents chose to build on Beech Mountain because it offered the best skiing in the South. Ski Beech is still the best and over the years, has developed as an exceptional vacation resort for the spring, summer, and fall seasons as well.

This home is a particularly inspiring place to stay for 3 reasons: 1) I have lined up discounts with local outfitters, guides, and shops for my guests 2) the home is decorated with professional photos of people engaged in outdoor activities 3)it sits high up in the trees so from the second floor deck, it feels like you are up in a tree house - fun!

MOUNTAIN RETREAT IN THE TREES

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 nights for a destination wedding that was held at the Beech Mountain Golf Club which was less than 1/2 mile away. Great location that provided relaxation and solitude.
Home is very comfortable with retro furnishings that make it feel very livable for a fantastic price. Having the downstairs level for our friend who accompanied us provided privacy but also the ability to connect when we desired. It is a wonderful area for hiking, bird watching and just plain relaxing on the decks. In the winter it would be ideal for those interested in skiing and other outdoor activities. It is close enough to drive to Banner Elk and Boone for meals if desired, but we chose to bring our own food to eat in when we were not participating in wedding activities. Would definitely stay there again if we return to the NC mountains.

Owner's Response: I am glad you thought the house was reasonably priced. I know it becomes expensive with extra fees added on, so I have not increased my prices since the house was listed and do not plan to in the future. I am also glad you like the retro furnishings and I plan to keep reinvesting in and updating the house. I agree, it is a relaxing place.

GREAT TRIP!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed staying at our home. We just made more improvements since you left - including a new front-loading washing machine, new arm chair for the upstairs living room, and new bear-proof trash bin outside. We have other improvements in the works and are looking forward to summer fun!

DOUBLED THE FUN AT DOUBLE THE FUN

  • 5 of 5
We doubled our fun at Double the Fun! The home comfortably housed two families, both of us had twins. The home has a well-equipped kitchen upstairs which made it easy for us to feed both families. The two separate spaces were also great for the kids and adults to all feel like they had enough space for the three days. The skiing was great at Beech Mountain as there was a heavy snow fall the day before we arrived and we sure are glad we had 4WD and snow tires. Not sure we would have been able to get in and out without them. However, this made for AWESOME sledding around the home. Our children had so much fun and it was certainly the perfect weekend getaway for us all.

THE PERFECT SNOW SKIING VACATION GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This vacation home on Beech Mountain is perfect. The location only about two miles from the ski lifts, but you feel like you are in the country. The deer and turkey can be seen in the yard at anytime. The two levels with fireplaces provide plenty of space and privacy to relax after skiing. All of the comforts of home are ready for your group to enjoy. We will certainly come back next season.

BEST TRIP EVER

  • 5 of 5
Two dads volunteered and took six sophomore boys for the weekend. The accommodations were great for separating the teenagers from their chaperons. The owner was very easy to work with. Kitty, the owner, got lift tickets and saved each person money. The boys said it was the best trip, ever!

PERFECT FOR US!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Double the Fun was perfect for us! We loved that the lights were on and that it was already warm and cozy when we arrived in from the cold (they had -40 wind chill weather a few days before we arrived!) It was a quick 5 minute drive from the ski slopes and on Saturday when it rained most of the day, we had plenty to do at the house -watched movies on the Roku, played Monopoly, etc. My sister, who brought her dog, loved that it was so pet-friendly, with dog beds on both floors and a gate to keep them safe upstairs. The house was super clean and we look forward to renting it again next year and making this our annual family vacation!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! Our housekeeper is relatively expensive, but I think she is worth every penny, especially when I hear that the house was super clean and and your arrival was welcoming. We look forward to having you stay with us again.
