About the property

3 bed/2 bath Remodeled Home with Spectacular Sunsets! WIFI!

Our home will no doubt delight you in the details. Whether you want to ski your heart out or cuddle up and read your book while gazing at the gorgeous view-- our home will provide the perfect getaway for you and your family. We bought this home in 2010 because we fell in love with what was advertised as a 'Million Dollar View'. Boy, were they right!! The sunset is awe inspiring. We gutted the house, built an addition to double the size of the home-- and now bring our 3 kids to enjoy skiing, sledding, and mountain hiking.

Now to the details:

Our home can accommodate 7 people. The Master bedroom has a super comfortable king size bed-- with his and hers mattresses to promote a peaceful night of sleep. A new flatscreen TV and ensuite bathroom provide a chance to sneak away for quiet time and relaxation.

One guest bedroom has 1 Queen bed and 1 Twin with a TV. One guest bedroom has 1 Queen bed.

The open living plan has a large dining table with 8 chairs, bar with 3 stools, and a dual fireplace viewed from both the eating area and the living room. The living room is very comfortable and steps out onto our enclosed sunroom for wonderful afternoon relaxation. The back deck has comfortable rockers and an electric grill. Drink your coffee or wine on the deck and watch the sun rise or set. AMAZING VIEWS!

For summertime guests, please note that our home as well as most properties on the mountain do not have air conditioning. The temperatures during the day are usually in the upper 60s/low 70s and may occasionally get up to the mid/upper 70s on certain days. The temperature can get quite cold in the evenings. Our guests love to open all of the windows in the summer and enjoy the cool breezes from outside. There are floor fans in the closets and a large ceiling fan in the living area of the house.

Our entire home is on 1-level, which is great for people that find it tough climbing stairs. We have off-street parking for 2 vehicles, and there are about 6 steps down onto the walkway to our front door. For wintertime guests, please know that Beech Mountain requires that you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle during the winter months. They do plow the roads frequently during snowfall, but please do not attempt driving up the mountain during the winter without the appropriate vehicle.

We love kids! In the master bedroom closet we keep a pack n play for your baby needs.

About Julianne Taylor

While living abroad due to hubby's career, we decided to buy a property in the mountains that we call 'home'. Now settled in S. Carolina, this is a perfect getaway anytime of year. The 'Mrs.' is a professional interior designer, and gutting and remodeling this home was fun project!

Julianne Taylor purchased this house in 2010

Why Julianne Taylor chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

After years of looking for just the perfect place-- we found our little 'Million Dollar View' in one of those Real Estate magazines. Althought the property initially needed a lot of work-- we couldn't pass up the view. It truly is magical. The property had wonderful bones, and we knew with a full renovation-- we could make this property something really specialy for our family and hopefully yours.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! Our family has been coming up to Beech Mtn for years, and this is by FAR the most beautiful home we have stayed in. We did not expect to walk in and find such a gorgeous home. Fantastic job on the remodel of this home-- we will be back next year for sure. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation with our family.

Million Dollar View

  • 4 of 5

My family and I recently stayed in this warm and inviting cottage. The view is indeed Million Dollar and we especially enjoyed the deck and porch. Everything in the very well equipped home was clean and comfortable. The location is great for all mountain facilities and activities as well as the numerous activities and restaurants in the surrounding area. Great place for a mountain vacation.

We enjoyed so many walks and hikes. Snowboarding for a day. Exploring all around. Never met one person who wasn't super friendly and willing to share information about the area. We will definitely be back!!!! Perfect way to spend our Thanksgiving.

Effortless and Just As Described!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Million Dollar View was everything we expected it to be, and more! The house was beautiful and plenty spacious for the 3 couples that stayed for a long weekend. The view was absolutely incredible by day and the starry skies we saw at night were breathtaking. The owner was available for questions and the house was well-stocked to meet our needs. The house was very private too, which was an added bonus! We will definitely remember this place for future visits to the NC mountains.

Distant views

  • 5 of 5

This place had the views we were looking for. We always look for places with views and are often disappointed. This one was what we've looked for. The only small negative is that the best views are slightly at an angle rather than straight back. However, all of the views are fantastic.

We liked the location of the house. It had a neighborhood feel. My daughter and I were alone but we felt very safe. We went for walks several times and usually encountered a friendly neighbor. Right in front of the house the road is dirt which we enjoyed. (It had just turned to dirt soon before.). The house is about 15-20 min of winding roads from downtown Banner Elk.

The house seemed to be well supplied. We weren't there very long so I'm not sure about this. It was very clean.

We loved being able to bring our little Yorkie! That's a definite plus!

Comfortable home, great view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for our daughter's wedding at Overlook Barn. The house was perfect. The bridesmaids and our daughter stayed the first night with us and they setup was great since the master bedroom area is separate from the area with the other 2 bedrooms and each area has its own bathroom. The home was clean and seemed well cared for, and of course, the view was amazing! Would definitely recommend.

Our home offers an opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Quiet and peaceful yet close enough to restaurants and fun activities to suit all.
