Excellent cabin and perfect winter vacation.
Our family of 5 spent lovely winter holiday week at Jeff's cabin. Long story short, you will be happy you picked that cabin. It is about 10 min. from the slopes or 5 min. opposite direction to the big Recreation Center with plenty of activities if weather is so so. You will find an excellent one hour hike to waterfalls behind it. When you plan your trip, give yourself plenty of time to arrive before dark- driving is not easy there, roads names hard to see, GPS rather spotty. Finding huckleberry Lane first time is not very easy at night first time. Once you there, you will find very well appointed cabin with master bedroom and sooo comfy king-size bed and master bathroom on the first level connecting to good size living room and kitchen. Stairs lead to second bedroom and another full bathroom with a large bed plus bank bed ( perfect for kids ). All the furniture is perfectly matching the cabin decor, must be done locally from solid wood. What can I tell you- just imagine yourself on a cold dark night in from of the fire place with your family, sipping hot coco and playing board games ( Jeff provides plenty of them, plus DVDs collection and even snow tube and 2 sledges so you don't have to buy yourself). Kitchen is fully equipped with anything possibly one can need. We cooked few meals in the cabin, and steaks came out just perfect on the BBQ sitting on the patio. Kids put some corn outside of the cabin and we saw few elks walking in the woods below. We had 4 cold snowy days perfect for skiing. Slopes are covered with man made snow, Xmas brake brings lots of visitors and lines are pretty long. But once you there, it feels like Colorado :-) If snow conditions are not so good, there are other great attractions: you MUST see Grandfather Mountain state park ( with Forrest Gump run) 45 min from Beech Mtn, Mystery Hill with gravitation vortex fun, Sugar Mtn. with snow tubing. Good place to eat:
Brick Oven Pizza, Bullwinkles Restaurant on top and in Banner Elk below is the restaurant "The Frog & The Monkey" ( little street on the right before gas station on the corner) with best food in this area. I can't say enough about the Beech Mountain and Jeff's cabin- just a perfect stay. Jeff was a pleasure to work with, all questions and emails have been answered immediately, deposit returned upon our arrival home sooner then I expected. We all hope to return next season.
Families with Young Children,
