Welcome to 'Dancing Bear Lodge' (formerly known as Jamaica High's View), our year-round vacation home.
The house is at an elevation of about 4300 feet on Beech Mountain; the trees have just been trimmed again so you can clearly see the panoramic and multi-layer mountain view any time of the year, all the way to the mountains of Tennessee and Virginia. In winter, you have easy access to Ski Beech and all the wonderland activities by way of paved roads. Enjoy skiing and sledding on the highest slopes in the eastern half of the U.S. In summer, enjoy the beauty of the mountains, the cool temperatures and all the activities available with a Beech Mountain Club membership.
Our house is less than a 1/2-mile to the golf course clubhouse, about 1.5 mile from the ski slope parking, and a hop, skip and jump to the tennis center, pickle board court, and heated swimming pool. The Buckeye Rec Center (with gym, indoor tennis, basketball and more) is just down the road. In fact, our house has something to offer for any season, whether it’s winter skiing, the peaceful 'coming alive' of spring in the mountains, the beauty of the leaves in fall, and activities like hiking, golf and tennis most of the year.
We recently had water damage as a result of a faulty valve on the icemaker of the refrigerator. As a result, the whole main floor and basement levels have been renovated and upgraded. New appliances, tile and granite in the kitchen; new vanities and tile in the bathrooms; new carpet everywhere. Our newly renovated 2300 square feet house is a warm and spacious place to relax. The house is decorated in an ecclectic, comfortable, mountain style. From the rustic rhododendrum queen bedroom with "funky" furniture to the antique brass bedroom upstairs, no 2 rooms are alike.
The main level has an open living room/dining room with wood burning stone fireplace, plush furniture, big dining table and lots of windows that open to our deck and THE VIEW, which is second to none. A large flat-screen TV, DVD/VCR player (with lots of DVD's and tapes) - with cable reception and Wi-Fi are in the living room.
Our upgraded and fully equipped kitchen has plenty of room and counter space to prepare casual or gourmet meals. The newly renovated kitchen has granite counters, tile floor and new appliances. Lots of spices and such are there for your cooking convenience - we just ask that you replace what you use up so it is there for the next guests. The master bedroom (the Bear Room) with king bed, and a bathroom complete the main level.
The second floor has a bathroom and two large brass bedded bedrooms. One bedroom has a King Brass bed; the other has an antique brass full-size bed and a loft platform with a ladder; a terrific room for kids! Both rooms have a mountain view too!
The basement is fully developed as of 2010. In addition to the game room and TV area, there is another bathroom, a laundry room, and 2 bedrooms. One bedroom has bunk beds and is great for kids. The other has a queen bed with rhododendrum headboard and mirror - perfect mountain decor! The basement has a separate entrance (and stairs from the 1st floor) which opens into a mudroom - great to take off wet and/or dirty clothes as it is right next to the laundry. This is especially useful in winter as skis can be kept here too.
The house is equipped with all kitchen appliances, cable TV's, DVD/VCR, stereo and CD player, washer/dryer, and deck furniture. There are plenty of books and board games. Each bed has attractive covers and linens; extra blankets and pillows are also right there. The house is on a paved road, has level access from the driveway, and has parking for four vehicles.
We are members of the Beech Mountain Club, which allows our guests to use the clubhouse, golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, and fitness center for a small guest fee during spring, summer and fall.
One more thing. Our house is managed by Beech Mountain Realty and Rentals. They are at the top of Beech Mountain Parkway as you enter the town. They have been managing properties on Beech for over 35 years and they make everything work smoothly. It is so convenient to have them right there in case you need anything during your stay. We are proud to have them manage our house and we know your stay will be more enjoyable because of their professionalism and attention to detail.
We love spending time at Dancing Bear Lodge ... and we know you will enjoy it too.

We had an incredible week on Beech Mt. The house was wonderful . It was everything your listing said it was. It is roomy, very clean and well maintained, comfortable, and has all the amenities one could ask for in a vacation home. Sitting on the deck, sipping wine and watching the sunsets over the Blue Ridge was like a dream. We will definitely be back, not just to the area, but to this specific home. The area is beautiful with lots to do, great restaurants, cultural events at Appalachian State, and magnificent views at every turn. This is your destination if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city - or the suburbs - and have a relaxing vacation.
We had a wonderful week at Dancing Bear. It was myself, husband and 2 yr, sister in law and two teenage girls. We had so much space to spread out in the house. It was nice, cozy and clean!Other than bringing food, we had everything we needed. We spent one day just lounging around the house, playing board games, Foosball in the basement, watching movies and hanging out on the deck enjoying the views!The mgmt company gave us tons of brochures of things to do, which we took full advantage of. In addition to there being lots to do down the mountain and in the surrounding cities, there was plenty to enjoy on the mountain. We had a wonderful time, would definitely stay again!
Beautiful, clean,cozy, the bedrooms excellent......Thank you....amazing view. ...
My family came from South America. spent christmas good location, don't need to bring anything has everything and clean
We had three familes gather for the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend and the house was perfect. The kids loved the game room, the playground just down the hill at the lake and the sledding hill at the city of Beech Mountain. I was a little concerned about cooking such a complicated meal in a strange kitchen, but the home had everything we needed in a big, spacious modern kitchen. The view was lovely, and so were the deer who were our frequent visitors. Very comfy home, couldn't ask for more. Loved the WiFi, as our cell phones didn't work very well on the mountain.
This is a lovely decorated home with a picture perfect view of the layered mountains! It's very clean and comfortable, and especially conducive to relaxing. We had ample space in the living room, to act-out charades . We enjoyed a nice fire in the fireplace. The large kitchen enabled several of us to enjoy cooking as a group (effort). We got to reconnect with nature, as there is plenty of nearby hiking. We even had quite a few deer visiting our backyard. Since we did a lot of indulging in delicious food and drink, I was glad the recreation center was just down the road. We had such a wonderful time together, I can hardly wait till we come back next year!
