22 Reviews
Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 8

Post and beam cedar home completed in 2008 and built only 50 feet from the waterfalls of Beech Creek. This unique home is accessed via it's own private bridge and gate. It lies on an 82 acre private estate with over 1/2 mile of stocked Trout waters. Lots of hiking trails as well as easy strolling land. The children will be content swimming, catching crawdads, and roaming the mountain. This will allow you to forget the tourist traps and enjoy the peace and sounds of Beech Creek from the expansive decks. Rain will not keep you indoors as you can enjoy the outdoors from the large covered porch.

The home is located 12 miles from Boone, 10 miles from Banner Elk, 7 miles from Valle Crusis and 7 miles from Beech Mountain.

Also just upstream 'The Old Fisherman's Cottage' is available for rent. ID # 112611

Second time as good as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We were here last year for the first time. We loved the place so much that there wasn't any question that we would return! Amazing stay and absolutely love the house! We explored more of the property with our beagle and found things we missed last year. Renting was a breeze and the house has everything you would need to set up shop for the week. I love soaking in the garden tub and my husband likes to relax in the hot tub after a day of exploring the area. Our only question for next year is do we want to come later in the year to see the place all green from springtime!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Tara, for sharing! It's special as well, to ourselves and our children. I hope you can make it in the summer months, although, there really isn't a "bad" time of year on Beech Creek. Hope to see you again next year! Cathy & Family

Beyond our wildest dreams!

  • 5 of 5

We almost felt guilty staying in this gorgeous house with just the 2 of us and our beagle! As others have mentioned, the pictures do not do it justice. From the "a-ha" moment of seeing the house from the main road to discovering the beautiful property towards the back, everything was perfect. Loved the covered porch during a good old mountain thunderstorm with hail! Enjoyed the constant and soothing sounds of the stream. The house was well stocked and set up perfectly for larger groups. This was our second time renting a house in North Carolina and this was handled easily and quickly! I don't think there are enough exclamation points to properly convey our excitement about this property!

Relaxing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to get away from it all! You are surrounded by mountains and have a lovely stream running behind the house to lull you to sleep each night. The house is nice, clean, and private, plus you have several acres to roam. Our dogs loved every second of their stay and were worn out each night. My husband fly fished and caught rainbow and brook trout. We plan to go back in the fall when the leaves change. I cannot put into words what a perfect place this is! Glorious!!!

Great summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

We went up with our grandson for the weekend and then spent 2 more days alone. The house was as advertised but you can not describe the peaceful feeling of being so close to the creek. My grandson wore me out climbing the rocks and jumping in the water. I highly recommend the stay, the down side is going back to work and not constantly thinking why you left so soon.

Wonderful, cozy, mountain home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here and LOVED the property. It was like camping, but in style with a great house!! My two young girls played in the huge yard all day, while we fished at the creek or sat by the fire!! The house is very secluded and quite a distance to any store/restaurant. We enjoyed that about the house, but just FYI.

We had a wonderful stay and hope to be able to make it back there someday!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Courtney for taking the time to write. It's amazing how children can busy themselves just enjoying the simple things nature has given us. So many families have commented on how satisfied their children were just to play in the water and "explore" the trails throughout the acreage. Thanks again for sharing, and I sure hope your family can return. Cathy

We really stayed at this awesome location in July of 2009 but the calendar would only allow us to go back so far.

Everything is perfect about this wonderful place. My kids didn't even want to see other things in the area because they had so much fun in the creek behind the house. And the house itself is perfect - we truly didn't want to leave!
