Why Mike chose Beech Mountain
We love the mountains and actually rented this unit in 2005 for a Thanksgiving holiday. We found the unit for sale the following year and made an offer promptly. The cabin is on Beech Mountain so its very close to skiing Beech and and a short drive to Sugar Mountain, Grandfather Mountain, and Blowing Rock.
What makes this Cabin unique
The property is centrally located. We enjoy the full kitchen and the covered decks, especially the back deck, because you can hear the creek that runs through the property's back yard.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Very nice stay at Mike's very nice cabin!
Thanks Mike for your cabin in which my wife and I enjoyed our 12th wedding anniversary - we really liked the cabin! We found that we wanted to live there!!! Also Mike's recommendation of Stonewall's restaurant was very excellent.
Thanks again Mike!
Not As Advertised or Expected
Location not characterized correctly in advertising. Not a vacation atmosphere. Some of the towels and wash cloths had laundry lint and/or hair in them!! Muddy, sandy parking - right on roadway. House was not very clean. Dark inside, large black ants. Shower had constant drip, annoying. Led to believe this was a Beech Mountain location, actually Banner Elk address. AND WHERE WAS THE ADVERTISED VIEW?? And cost was too high for this!!
Thank you for review. We appreciate any and all feed back that we receive. Reviews and feedback allow us to ensure that our guests enjoy every moment in the cabin and on the mountain. We are confident that our 4.4 star review average means that the great majority of our guests find the cabin to meet or exceed their needs. In fact, the reviews just prior to your stay had review titles such as "Great Location with Amazing Views", "Nice, quick and close to surrounding places to go", "Cozy and Cute" and 'Great Location, good spot, as advertised". These reviews tell a different story from your experience. Although these guests stayed in the same cabin that you did.
I think its best that we respond in kind to each of your concerns. First, I checked the weather on an app to see what the weather was like on your 3 night stay at Beech Cabin. Unfortunately, there were heavy rains for 2 of the 3 days of your stay. As you can imagine, that rain caused mud and for certain, the cabin would have been darker inside with heavy cloud cover. I also understand that bad weather dampens your overall vacation activities and options to get outside and enjoy the highlands. We know this first hand as we had this happen to us on a VRBO vacation on Captiva Island. Tropical Storm Barry made sure that it rained 5 of our 7 day stay. I am sorry you had bad weather and wish it would have turned out differently.
With respect to our cleaning company, we have used the same cleaning person for 6 years. They consistently do an amazing job and take great pride. We know this because of the reviews we read in our guest book at the property and also many of our renters mention the cleanliness of the home. I am sorry there was lint in your towels. If you would have let me know I would have had them changed out immediately. If there were ants, again our maintenance person lives moments from the cabin and would have dealt with the issue promptly.
Lastly, with respect to our views and our address. I personally took all of our exterior pictures from the front and back decks. Those are the views that you have when staying at the cabin. The only difference, is I took those pictures in the fall and in the snowy winter. In contrast, you were looking out a gloomy and cloudy summer sky. Again, sorry that you had bad weather and didn't get to enjoy the natural vistas of Beech. Our cabin is located on Beech Mountain at 4,650 elevation, I've used by own altimeter to measure it. The peak of Beech Mountain is 5,600 feet. We mention in our listing that the mountain top is only 1.5 miles from the house. This is 100% accurate and not embellished in any way. The mountain residences have a Banner Elk address until you get to the very top of the mountain when it turns to a Beech Mtn address. Most of the properties at the top of the mountain are coffee shops, restaurant and ski facilities.
I appreciate the 2 stars that you offered us in your review and we can only hope that you will return under sunnier skies. Please keep in mind that we offer a 15% discount to all of our return renters. We hope to have you back.
Best of luck to you in your future vacations.
Mike and Missy

Great location, good spot, as advertised
Easy to get to--road was well salted. Heater was on so the place was warm waiting for us. Had everything we needed. Clean and everything worked great. Clear directions from owners. Look forward to returning next year.
