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!
