Perfect for family ski trips

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved every minute of our stay at this house which is right along the ski slopes. It was fun to watch the skiers and the views are stunning. It was very clean and nicely decorated and had plenty of space for our party of 7. We hope to make this an annual tradition!

Our second stay and will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

We have always enjoyed the ski-in ski-out feature of the house and loved the new dining room extension. So much room for the family and our guests! The house is cheerful and clean and comfortably furnished. We're so glad we found this vacation getaway!

Owner's Response: Hi Joshua, Thank you for vacationing at our "Beech House" again and for your 5 star review! The 8-seater dining room [extendable to 10] addition has been commented on favorably by all our "repeats" - makes the house so much more spacious. In line with the Beech Mountain Resort, we continue to upgrade and improve our cozy cabin. Hope you'll return soon. Meantime, wishing you and your family every success for the New Year. Kelvin

Beautiful ski-in/ski-out home, breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with bright, spacious interior and gorgeous views of the mountains and valley below. Plenty of room to have additional guests and children's playtime downstairs with a separate dining area and plenty of seating in front of the fireplace. We love the easy access to ski-in/ski-out during the winter with the ski hill becoming hiking trails just outside the back door during summer months. Convenient walking distance to everything you will need at Fred's Mercantile Store, Brick Oven Pizzeria, ski shops, sledding hill, and more. We will be back every year!

Great summer weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay here. I think it was just remodeled since it has new furniture and appliances = very clean! Our most favorite part of the house was the deck since it offers amazing views of the mountains. We spent most of our time out there making use of the BBQ grill and lounging on the deck furniture. Nothing beats a glass of wine watching the sun set! We also made use of the hiking trails in the area and even hiked the ski slopes which are just alongside the house. We will definitely come back!

Beautiful views and summer hiking

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with gorgeous views of the mountain. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with ski runs just outside the door that are now turned into perfect hiking trails and gentle walks to the top of Emerald Outback. Lots of places to take pictures, bird watch, and throw a blanket for a picnic lunch. The wraparound deck at the house provided an intimate setting for lighting up the grill and enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sunset. We also enjoyed driving to nearby lookout points with additional hiking trails and spectacular views from Grandfather Mountain. Golf courses, fishing, and swimming conveniently nearby. Wonderful summer vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you Georgina, happy to hear you and David had such a great time. Spring time at Beech is always a lovely time of year for wild life/flower viewing while on a hike or out on the expansive biking trails, some of these are quite challenging. You may not know this but Lance Armstrong used to train up there as the pattern of mountain roads is similar to the Tour de France route through the Pyrenees. Good to hear all was well with our chalet and the features of the accommodation met with your expectations. Look forward to welcoming you guys back, another time. Best wishes for a wonderful Summer. Kelvin & Cecilia

Spectacular Home with Million $ Veiws!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the Beech House! The pictures don't do the property justice, as the veiws were absolutely spectacular from every window, door & all around the 2 level deck. We stayed at the home during the summer time for a wedding that was on top of Beech Mountain at the Land of Oz. The house is perfectly located, less than a minute drive from everything you will need to visit in Beech Mountain..but it's secluded enough up the mountain that it feels very private. We counted less than 3 cars passing the house for our entire stay. We didn't see or hear anyone at the neighboring houses either, only the sound of a gentle mountain breeze and nature. My wife and I have stayed in owner managed vacation homes many times over the past 8 years and I have to admit that the Beech House ranks among our top expereinces. The price is beyond reasonable for the accomodations in this home. It's clean inside & out, has a light contemporary styling that blends nicely with the mountain setting. I can't think of anything that I would have needed that this rental didn't provide. Multiple TV's, Gas Logs, Gas Grill, Great Outdoor Furniture, Comfortable Indoor Furniture, an up-to-date truly has it all. The kid's enjoyed the bunk bed room and having a bathroom on the lower level and we (Parents) enjoyed having a private bathroom! We were able to park 4 cars in the driveway when guest came over and the deck was perfect for entertaining in the evening and privately and peacefully sipping a morning cup of coffee and gazing over the mountains. The windows in each room open extremely wide for a nice mountain breeze all day long, as they have screens and many open in 2 parts so you can feel safe leaving them open while you are gone or at night. Kelvin & CC thank you so much for sharing your beautiful vacation home with my family. We were truly blessed to have found it and I can promise that it will be our "go-to" house when we visit Beech Mountain again! My final words to all of you that are reading this review and trying to figure out if this is the house for your Beech Mountain Vacation...hurry up and rent it, before someone else like me who already know's how great it is rents it! You will not be dissapointed, I promise. Thanks again Kelvin & CC, we can't wait till our next trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you Nelson and Melody for your great review; happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our "Beech House". We are proud of the rennovation which fully modernised all the amenities, added the expansive decks and brought the overall construction up to modern codes. Hope you return soon. There are so many amenities going on, in and around Beech Mountain. In particular, you may like to check out "Autumn at Oz" 20th anniversary festival Oct. 5th and 6th. and then come race a worm at the "Woolly Worm Festival" held each year at nearby Banner Elk, Oct. 19th and 20th. We are already accepting reservations for the upcoming ski season. With our sincere best wishes for safe travels and every success in the future, Kelvin & CC Troughton

Car: necessary

If you live near or within the perimeter of Huntsville/Birmingham AL - Nashville/Knoxville, TN - Raleigh/Durham, NC - Atlanta, GA - Columbia, SC then you are within an easy day’s drive of Beech Mountain. Leave home in the morning, check-in in the afternoon and you can be night ski-ing the fully lighted slopes, the very same day.

And if it’s a Summer/Fall vacation you are looking for, hike on further down this page for seasonal info.

Just compare all the time taken and the rising costs of airfares to reach the “Rockies” with the economies of scale for family and friends traveling on a memorable road trip to Beech Mountain.

At 5,505 ft. Beech Mountain is the highest ski resort in the East and with an 850 ft. vertical drop, there are plenty of slopes ranging from “Bunny Hill” to Black Diamond”.

Just 200 yards down Skiloft there is a sledding hill and an ice skating rink is featured at the resort complex.

Leave your regular wheels in the 3-car driveway for an easy walk down Skiloft past the sledding hill to several family style restaurants “The Brick Oven” [Crazy-golf + game room] also the renowned “Fred’s Mercantile”. As Fred says in his slogan “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it”! His deli has it all too.

After a day’s skiing and feeling warmly worn out, watch the floodlit action from the deck then curl up in front of the gas log fireplace and satellite TV or, select from the many board games for some more family fun.

And let’s take a look at our Summer and Fall, out-door welcoming temperatures and gentle, mountain breezes.

“The Beech House” is right at the start of “Emerald Outback” phase one of the new “Beech Mountain Adventure Trail Park” a wealth of unique terrain obstacles and gravel/logging bailouts – free!

There’s a wealth of hiking trails for all levels too.

Prefer cooking “Alfresco”? The wrap-around decks are equipped with propane barbecue grill, picnic table, chairs and benches.

And there’s more! The house comes with guest member privileges to the Beech Mountain Club, swimming, tennis, fitness center, restaurant, library and golf, organized hikes and camp for kids too.
