Overview

Beech Mountain House Rental Photos and Description

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

*SPECIAL WEEKLY RATES - 20% DISCOUNT. ASK ABOUT SKI LIFT TICKET DISCOUNTS.

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

About kitty calhoun

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

Why kitty calhoun chose Beech Mountain

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Perfect weekend tree house getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute visit for me and a friend to look at real estate. What we found is an extremely comfortable abode in the trees. It was like having your own adult size tree house. Like perfect, completely quite and serene. The owner was awesome and easy to work with. I highly suggest this home for a serene vaca.

Great Ski Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Kitty was extremely kind and responsive to work with, which is such a gift when planning a trip away from home. The house is set up in a very unique way so that the family that my son and I travelled with got the top floor, while we had the bottom floor that included a mini kitchen and its own living room area. The deck is absolutely gorgeous and the house is very close to the ski slopes and town. One major bonus was the abundance of deer that were always around the home!!!! Kitty's home was very clean and nicely stocked where we had everything we needed to settle in. We highly recommended and will be back!

Owner's Response: I'm happy to do what I can to ensure you have a great vacation. We are grateful once again, that the ski season was fantastic, and Beech Mtn ski resort is continually making improvements. Speaking of which, we are looking forward to providing more upgrades in our kitchen this year as well.

So accomodating and a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

My group was a bit of a mess: going back and forth on who was coming, whether we had pets coming or not, we were just all over the place. Yet through it all, Kitty was so, so kind and accommodating and very patient with us, which I appreciated so much, I can't even tell you. I was already stressed trying to wrangle these people, she made everything super smoothly. Then when we arrived, the house was beautiful and comfortable! Our stay was an excellent one and we'll definitely be back. Thank you!

Owner's Response: I'm glad to be able to accommodate. I know it can be stressful organizing a vacation and I do what I can to help make it a smooth and easy process. Glad you enjoyed our house too. With all the activities and good service on Beech Mtn, it makes the get-away that much better. Enjoy the snow!

MLK weekend snowbaording trip

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at this house recently, and were very impressed with both the house itself and the location. We were able to comfortably sleep 8, and even cook for all 8 in the upstairs kitchen. It was also very close to sugar and beech mountain. The house itself is set away from any neighbors, so privacy was no issue at all. I would highly recommend this place.

Awesome and Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

I visited this week for couple of days. Its nice property away from All but near to Skiing area.

Though no scenic area from windows but a nice big deck with lights outside makes it special. Its very clean and everything you need is available in there.

Kitty was so helpful in managing everything. Everything including booking this cabin in very quick way. She gave lots of options to save some money. She even got us discounted tickets for lift tickets. Paid money on our behalf and then arranged some one to even pick left over tickets. Again she made everything so easy and effortless which counts a lot. I would definitely come back again and would recommend to others.
