Before you rent anywhere on Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, Sugar Mountain or Valle Crucis, you need to check out The Best of Beech - a new log cabin. The cabin is beautifully decorated with new furnishings, and features 4 flat screen TV's and high speed wireless throughout. Our 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths spread over 3 floors allowing you to comfortably sleep 14 and it provides ample room to roam. It is sized perfectly for large family gatherings, yet cozy enough for just a few. Enjoy the view of Ski Beech Mountain from our wrap around porch, take a hike on many of the nearby designated trails or just relax and watch the wildlife meander through the back yard in the setting sun.
Just off Beech Mountain are the charming towns of Banner Elk, Valle Crucis and Blowing Rock. Each of these are home to great restaurants and shopping. Spend time at Grandfather Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, Linville Caverns, Mystery Hill and the original Mast General Store. You may also opt for an outdoor adventure offered by many of the local outfitters. Whether it is whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, rock climbing, caving, or fly fishing, there is no shortage of world class outdoor activities within a 30 minute drive.
The town of Boone is close as well. Boone is home to Appalachian State University. There is shopping at the quaint shops in the downtown area. There are also many restaurants in the downtown that have local cuisine. There is the Daniel Boone Inn with the home style family buffet or The Horn in the West outdoor theater with dining if you choose.
The Town of Beech Mountain requires that you have a vehicle that is properly equipped in the event of inclement weather during the winter months. You must have a vehicle with 4WD or chains if there is snow or ice to keep you safe during your visit.

Both of our families had visited the mountains of North Carolina when we were children and teenagers. We came to visit in 2010 in the summer with our children and stayed in a cabin on Beech Mountain. We fell in love with the area and all that it had to offer. Our family decided that we should find a place that we could come and stay more often.
Vicky purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Vicky chose Beech Mountain
We looked for the perfect place for our family for almost two years before we found this cabin. We wanted a place that was new, and had all of the conveniences of home. We also wanted a house that was close to the ski slopes, but would feel that we were in the woods surrounded by nature.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin is a home away from home. There are all of the conveniences of a well-stocked kitchen. You can relax on the back deck and watch the wildlife, or you can sit and watch your kids play in the natural area and build a fort in woods. At night you can gather family and friends around the firepit. The downstairs rec room is a great place to watch movies and play games, while the upstairs Great Room has another TV and DVD player too. The cabin is a short walk from some of the best hiking trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains with waterfalls and trout filled ponds.

Wonderful experience. Clean and charming inside, Excellen from the moment we arrived.
We really enjoyed our time at Beech Mountain. This house was very nice and clean. We met up at the house with several family members (4 generations) to attend my brother's wedding in Banner Elk. The house was plenty large enough to accommodate all 12 of us without trouble at all. The price was fantastic for such a large and lovely home.
It is situated in a beautiful wooded area on a gravel road. GPS had a little trouble getting us to the house and the gravel mountain roads were like a labyrinth, but we figured it out without too much trouble. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and the neighbors were excellent. One neighbor offered to help when he saw that one of our vehicles had a flat tire.
There was one minor inconvenience, that can't really be held against the property or its owners. One of the smoke detectors had a low battery and started beeping loudly. I called the owners to ask if there was a 9V battery in the house that I could install. There wasn't one, but 15 minutes later a woman showed up on the porch with new batteries. Crisis Averted. Problem was resolved very quickly and the woman was quite helpful and friendly. She even drew a map of the mountain to help us navigate it a little easier.
Most of the beds were reported to be comfortable and the bedding all appeared to be clean and neat. The people that slept in the basement rooms reported that it is noisy with people walking above, but I suppose that is just typical of basements. The game room was great fun for the kids and there are a few cable channels to flip through too. The also had a few board games and puzzles to entertain us too.
We all really enjoyed the experience staying in this house. If I find myself back in this part of the country again, I will definitely try to rent this property again.
We loved it!
We had such a great time at Best of Beech. The fire pit was a fabulous touch and the kids had a great time in the bunk room and the play room. Our only concern was the stairs to the top floor seemed off (particularly the top step seemed extra tall) and caused a bit of a safety concern, especially with the toddlers in our group. The location was fabulous and the house met all of our needs. We'd love to return!
Cabin was great. Close to skiing and restaurants but remote enough to feel you were in the country.
Had everything we needed. Maybe more towels would be nice. Beds were good and parking was great.
Truly one of the BEST on BEECH
We have been visiting Beech for 10 years and this is one of our favorite homes we have rented. We hope to get lucky and reserve it again for next year. Loved the location and accommodations.
Great time for the whole family .weather was really cold. Some days in the minus 1-5 category but skiing and snowboarding and sledding still great fun. We saw many,many deer on a daily basis which the kids and adults enjoyed. Cabin itself was very roomy and the fire place was a life saver.
Only thing we wished they had provided was more towels and blankets, but still the cabin rates a 5 star.
Amazing place for family vacation
Our family all came together for a Christmas time vacation. Everyone just loved the house and it offered something for all ages. The kids loved the downstairs game room while the adults loved the main level for some serious Scrabble competition! The sound system was awesome for playing Christmas music and the kitchen was amazing for cooking our meals. We really loved the idea of having labels on all of the light switches, that was great! We can't say anything negative about this place, it was amazing and would definitely recommend this for family vacations!
