Sitting at over 5000 feet, enjoy the serenity of the Western Carolina Mountains, where ”Beauty” meets the “Beech.” Beech Mountain offers some of the most breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Located just 30 miles east of the Tennessee border, Beech Mountain is home to Eastern America’s highest ski resort – Ski Beech. Beech Mountain has the unique characteristic of being an “all-season” get-away. If you’re looking for skiing, hiking, rafting, biking, fishing, viewing fall colors, or just relaxing - Beech Mountain is the place to do it.
Built in 2007, “Beauty and the Beech” offers a spacious two level home, with 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and a spectacular view of Ski Beech Resort right off the back deck of the house. Everything in this home is brand new. In addition to the local area attractions, there is nearby access to the new Buckeye Recreation Center which offers outdoor tennis courts, outdoor walking track, indoor gym, conference area, and small lake for boating and fishing.
While visiting Beech Mountain, be sure to check out some nearby favorite attractions such as Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mountain or Linville Caverns - to name a few.
I have been with one of the larger financial institutions in the Charlotte area for over 14 years. While working at a different financial institution, my husband started his own construction business approximately 11 years ago and went out on his own. We have always had a passion for real estate - acquiring properties, flipping and renting - this is what we do in our free time.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
My husband was first introduced to Beech Mountain through a customer - who eventually turned out to be very good friends of ours. They had purchased a vacation home in Beech Mountain that required some renovations. The customer asked if my husband would be willing to drive to Beech Mountain to complete the work? He agreed to do it, and before we knew it, he was heading up to Beech Mountain toward the end of a week, and our two boys and I, would follow a day later to join him and spend the rest of weekend there together. It was love at first sight. We absolutely fell in love with Beech Mountain immediately. We had continued with this routine a number of times and became very familiar with Beech Mountain, and all that it had to offer. We had always had a long term goal of purchasing a vacation home in either the mountains or at the beach - so we began our search - and it didn't take long to find our home. We figured we got the best of both worlds in buying a vacation home in "Beech" Mountain. We refer to our house at Beech Mountain as the "Beech House." There always seemed to be something for us to do at Beech Mountain, regardless of the time of year. For us, that was the best benefit of all in purchasing a vacation home at Beech Mountain.
Beech Mountain is truly an all season get-away. We have enjoyed all 4 seasons at Beech Mountain. Skiing, snowboarding and sledding are our winter-time favorites. The "colors" in the fall are spectacular - the view off the back of our deck looks right at Ski Beech Resort - and to the right is the Tennessee border. The summer and spring times are just as nice, as there are several hiking trails that we enjoy taking - our favorite is the Lower Pond Creek Trail - it runs along side a beautiful mountain stream - and some fantastic waterfalls to see along the way. My all time favorite activity is sitting on the deck in the warmer weather, with my morning coffee - looking out at the mountain - nothing is more peaceful and relaxing to me. In the colder months, I enjoy my coffee while sitting inside the Great Room, with the spacious windows off the back of the house, allowing me the same majestic view.
We had a wonderful time at beech..the house is absolutely beautiful, look just as the photos.The deer sightings were unbelievable, they would just roam and look at us.Very spacious and clean house. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed.
Thank you Robin for sharing your house with us, we greatly enjoyed and we will be back.
Absolutely wonderful home!! very clean, spacious and perfect for our family... only minutes away from Ski Resort! The kids loved seeing the deer, lots of deer!! Thank you Robin for opening your home for others to enjoy!
We had 12 people staying in this house and it was great. The bedrooms are spacious. The fireplace was very nice. You will definitely need all wheel drive or snow chains. It was hard for one family that only had rear wheel drive to get up the hills after the snow. I loved the location and the quietness. There were deer everywhere.
Larger home than I had expected. It had everything we needed & some. The only confusing thing was on departure, instructions were to load dishwasher & run last load & turn off main water valve. So we just hand washed the dishes instead. BEAUTIFUL view of the slopes at night.
We just returned from our 1st visit to Beech Mountain and cannot wait to plan our next trip. Beauty and the Beech, was the perfect house for our vacation. The owners were extremely thoughtful and so easy to work with. We arrived in the snow and were very thankful for 4 wheel drive. The owners kindly notified us beforehand to warn us of the need. Thank you! The house is in a great wooded area with beautiful views and plenty of deer sightings. The house worked great for two families and while the kids played downstairs, the adults were able to relax upstairs by the fire. Everything was neat, comfortable and extremely clean. The house has a well stocked kitchen, but there are also great local restaurants nearby. We especially loved ordering out from Alpen and stopping in at the Brick Oven Pizzeria. The whole town is adorable and even has a cute free sledding hill that they blow snow for, (not that they needed any snow our weekend). Beech Mountain Ski Resort is very close to the house and our kids loved ski school. We had such a wonderful winter get-away ringing in the new year, but we also think Spring or Summer would be a perfect time in Beech! Like I said, we are already planning our next trip! We found
Had a great time here. It was roomy, clean, and cozy. Very close to ski beech ( you could even see ski beech from the patio.) The home had everything we needed for our stay.
