Overview

Beech Mountain Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Plus Loft

Remodeled Summer 2013, this beautiful Beech Mountain, North Carolina “Round House” is nestled among the tree tops at an elevation of 4580’ and is less than a mile from the Beech Mountain Ski Resort entrance. All new furnishings include custom kitchen cabinetry, mattresses, linens, and more for your ultimate comfort get-a-way. The living room has a new stone façade 42” fire place with gas logs (no messy firewood needed!). The best part is turning on the fireplace is as easy as flipping on the light switch. While cozying up by the fireplace, you can watch the 55” Smart TV or your favorite DVD. You will enjoy cooking your favorite comfort foods in the custom kitchen fully equipped with stainless appliances and porcelain farm sink. Solid walnut countertops add to the beauty of the kitchen. Enjoy meals or play games at the large dining table made with reclaimed white oak wood. You will appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of the reclaimed hardwood floors salvaged from an 1830’s barn in Wisconsin.

Bring the marshmallows and make some memories by the outdoor fire pit. The fire pit is located next to the rolling creek running through the property. Relaxation and memory making at its best!

Each bedroom has a custom built queen size bed with drawers for your personal storage. Along with new mattresses, you’ll be sure to stay cozy and comfortable with the dual controlled electric blankets for those cool Beech Mountain nights. The loft is a perfect set up for children with a twin day bed and trundle, child size activity table, games, toys, and 32” Smart TV. A huge outdoor deck was rebuilt for reading, dining, and listening to the soothing sounds of the creek on the property. The newest addition is a large outdoor flagstone patio and fire pit. This is the perfect area for outdoor family fun. The gazebo span’s the creek and is a perfect place to have a tea party for princesses or be a castle and moat for young knights. Beech Mountain boasts a summer temperature rarely above 80 degrees and an average winter snowfall of 80” (many winters having much more)! Depending on the season, spend your day hiking, fishing, mountain biking, golfing, whitewater rafting, skiing, sledding, ice skating, shopping, or relaxing on the couch. It doesn’t get much more peaceful than this!

Although the roads are maintained by the Town of Beech Mountain, a 4-Wheel or All-Wheel drive vehicle or snow chains are recommended during the winter months.

About Stephen Litchfield

Our family currently resides on the coast of South Carolina. While we truly enjoy the Lowcountry with the water and beach we do love our time on Beech Mountain when we get a chance to head up there. Our kids love playing in the creek outside and seeing all the wildlife on the mountain. With all the activities on the mountain there is plenty to keep everyone entertained.

Stephen Litchfield purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Stephen Litchfield chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

If elevation is your desire, then this is the place! Beech Mountain is the highest incorporated town east of the Mississippi. Being less than a mile from the ski slopes was important as was the unique location of the house. We wanted to have as much snow as possible and found the perfect home.

What makes this cottage unique

You want to choose our property if peace and tranquility are important to you. One of our favorite features of the house is the creek. It is usually rolling with water from mountain run off and there is nothing more peaceful than sitting on the deck or by the fire pit listening to it. The children love turning over rocks looking for salamanders, crawfish, etc.

We also fell in love with the wildlife and nature surrounding us. Its amazing what you will see just while watching out the window.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We bonded as we enjoyed the fire pit, children's toys, and creek. We will be back!

Mountain Retreat "Creative Use of Space"

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful renovated round house with creative use of space. My wife and I enjoyed all the amenities of home (flat screens, wifi, Keurig coffee maker, etc.). Lovely fire pit along a creek with deer and other wildlife aplenty! Will definitely return on our next trip to Beech Mtn.

Only possible negative is lots of steps for anyone with bad knees, etc. Was a great workout for me!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Beech Mountain. The house was warm and welcoming, but also clean and up to date. The kids loved playing in the stream as we relaxed by the fire. The kitchen is beautiful and all of the beds comfortable.

We'll definitely go back.

Great family cabin to make wonderful memories!

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful vacation cabin again. The kids loved the new sleeping nooks in the loft and swinging rope by the creek. It's very cozy family retreat that we will come back again soon for the third time.

Best VRBO rental in a beuatiful location

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many VRBO properties and this one was the best so far. The home was exceptionally comfortable with lots of kitchen gear - it was just like being at home. The home was beautifully decorated & a great gathering place for our family who rented multiple homes in the area. The home comfortably entertained 12 people and the fire pit was a big hit for smores and conversation after dinner. There were always lots of deer to be seen (and even a young bear). Our girls loved the "cubie" beds in the loft, the robe swing and catching critters in the stream. The area has many nice nearby amenties - the Buckeye Rec center, tubing on the back-side of Beech Mt, the Emerald forest, horse-back riding, and fabulous hiking.

Close drive to Lake Coffey

Lake Coffey is one of Beech Mountain’s signature neighborhood parks nestled off of Lakeledge Rd. Lake coffey is a great place to fish as it is stocked regularly with mountain trout. Coffey park is also a great place for exercise with its ¼ mile walking track around the lake, basketball court, and of course since it serves as the junction point for Beech Mountain’s premier upper and lower pond creek trails. You can enjoy an entire day at this wonderful park!

3.5 miles to Buckeye Recreation Center and Buckeye Lake

The Buckeye Lake Recreation Area is a 60+ acre recreation preserve that includes the 23,000 sq. ft. Buckeye Recreation Center, playground, falls hiking trail, a large picnic pavilion, non-motorized boat dock, numerous fishing access points, and a community bonfire pit.

Beech Community Sledding Hill

Beech Mountain is home to the High Country’s only free, publicly maintained and groomed (complete with artificial snow making) community sledding hill. The sledding hill park opens Thanksgiving weekend, weather permitting and remains open through the first of march, again weather permitting. Located atop Beech Mountain neighboring the Town Hall and Chamber of Commerce/Visitors Center, you are sure to enjoy this wonderful winter park complete with holiday music and lots of winter cheer! Please note, the sledding hill is for children under 12 years old, closes at dark, and we ask that you only use plastic sleds.
