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 Banner Elk

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.

Perfect location, cozy and well equipped for a family.

  • 4 of 5

Such a lovely home. We enjoyed the spectacular view, and spent lots of time playing cards as a family at the dining room table, with the fireplace running. All the beds were comfortable, appliances were clean, and we were so convenient to the ski resort. We stayed the week after Christmas, so the resort was quite busy, but we were able to spend plenty of quality family time at the house with hot cocoa! It’s easy enough to get back and forth to Beech Ski Resort, Sugar Mountain, Banner Elk, and even Boone. The kids loved the town’s free sledding hill. The town is just stunning, especially snow-kissed. We were able to easily prepare our meals at the house, and enjoyed our time together. Plenty of TV stations for Football and New Years Rockin Eve, too! Thank you for sharing your delightful home.

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Deck off the back and view was simply amazing. One of the best spots on the mountain to grab a cup of coffee in the morning or an afternoon cocktail and take in sunset.

Great home off of a quiet street, very dog friendly walkable neighborhood. Close to great hiking and biking trails.

Only reason we didn't give 5 stars was the gas for the fire place logs apparently was used up by previous guests so we were unable to utilize the fireplace all weekend. No biggie thou it wasn't cold. And some electrical outlets on the deck didn't work for the grill so we had to get a bit creative on plugging it in but worked well for us.

Will be back for sure.

Cozy cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I visited with our dog for a long weekend and our stay was divine. The cottage was very comfortable and provided incredible views. Loved that we could turn the fireplace on with the flip of a switch! It was so peaceful and relaxing that we didn't want to leave. Enjoyed visiting the towns of Banner Elk, Boone, and Blowing Rock. Grandfather Mountain was heavenly. Truly a restorative trip. Thanks, Chris and Julianne!
