It is a very convenient and affordable weekend, weeklong or monthly vacation spot and great for family reunions, romantic weekends, honeymoons or a girls/guys weekend away. Just 15 minutes from Sugar Mtn, which has not only great skiing, but events throughout the year.

The first floor has 2 bedrooms (1 king & 1 queen bed) and a full bath as well as a washer/dryer. Both bedrooms have Cable TV/DVD/VCRs. The main floor has a living room with fireplace, Cable TV/DVD/VCR, dining room, full kitchen, full bath and 2 decks with nice views. A queen pullout couch,a queen aerobed and a twin aerobed are usually available (occasionally, they break in between renters and aren't immediately replaced). The 3rd floor has a great view, a full-sized bed and a 1/2 bath. The condo offers ground level access making it easy to unload.

Our family stays there regularly so the condo has all the amenities to make your stay easy and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals. We provide books, movies, games infant/toddler items, linens/towels and firewood.

We are not far from Banner Elk, Boone, Valle Crucis, Blowing Rock, Tweetsie Railroad, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Year-round Activities include hiking, shopping, wine-tasting at Banner Elk, Linville & Grandfather Winery, restaurants or curling up with a book by the stone fireplace or out on the deck.

About Janice Cutler

We are the Cutler's, family of four with 2 girls who love the mountains. We live in Raleigh, NC and go up to Beech any chance we can get. Like everyone, we lead busy lives with work and children activities but we try hard to make time for fun and getting away. Janice is a Florist owner in Raleigh and Seth is in IT. We love the outdoors and enjoy escaping the humid weather in Raleigh in summer and going to Beech where it is always pleasant and cool. We hope you decide to stay at our place when planning your vacation on Beech. Wherever you stay, enjoy!

Janice Cutler purchased this condo in 2005

Why Janice Cutler chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We purchased our place in 2005 because we just LOVE Beech Mountain during ALL seasons. We had visited several times to ski and also in Fall and summer. The weather in summer is especially amazing as it never gets above 80 degrees on the mountain. There seems to be no humidity. Coming from Raleigh where the summers can be just oppressive and actually being able to stay outside all the time while on Beech in the summer is worth the trip alone. Skibeech is a nice family mountain and there is just so much to do in general during all seasons. Our family vacations are always full of magnificent scenery, fun activities and friendly folks. We love going there.

What makes this condo unique

All the conveniences we keep for our guests. We realize how daunting it can seem to think about packing for a trip with children and all the stuff! We have many of the bulkier items difficult to travel with waiting there for you, playpen, high chair, etc.. There are also plenty of toys to access, books, games, videos, DVD's, etc... The kitchen is a full kitchen where you can cook anything you would need to. All appliances you would have at home, we have here. People tell us our beds are very comfortable to sleep in. Our location is great for so many reasons: 5 minutes from SkiBeech, 5 minutes from the Beech Mountain Club, 10 minutes from Buckeye Rec Center, and 15 from SkiSugar. In summer, it is a quick 20-30 minutes for most rafting trips. Also in Summer, our guests can enjoy the pool and tennis courts at the Beech Mountain Club and Rec Center as our guests. We have been told that we have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. If you must work or surf the net while you are here, we do have WIFI in the condo!

We had the most wonderful time. The condo really feels like a house because no one is above or below you. Everything you could want or need is provided and the owner really goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. The neighbors were even gracious. We will definately be back!!! Very kid friendly!!!

We really had a great stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed everything about this condo and our stay at Beech mountain. The condos location was perfect for us! We spent most of our time sledding at the nearby sled hill, ice skating and snow tubing at Ski Beech. It's well equipped and we felt at home! The only caution I had was the air was extra extra dry and we all woke with dry throats and noses...(which was only a real problem for the littles). I assume the altitude and running all the heaters had a role. Next time we'll pack a humidifier.

It snowed most of our visit and it was absolutely beautiful!!!! Thank you Janice for sharing your lovely mountain cottage with our family!!! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Melissa for the feedback. I will be sure to keep this in mind. I am a warm-natured person so I enjoy the cold weather. I don't run the heat extra high (and sometimes open the window even in winter:) so I would not normally experience this myself. I will be mindful of this when talking with others who may be affected by this. The air is so much dryer naturally on Beech (hence the wonderful temps in summer without the humidity). I do forget that this is noticeable even in winter time). So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks again. Janice
