The neighbourhood

Our house is on Pine Ridge Road between the Beech Mountain Golf Course and the Buckeye Recreation Center. We have permanent resident neighbors on two sides. We have two gravel parking areas and our lot is wooded and shady.
North Carolina’s Beech Mountain is Eastern America’s highest incorporated town and resort community at 5506 ft above sea level. This is a place for all seasons where you can do all the things you enjoy. We are 11 miles from Sugar Mountain, 3 miles from Ski Beech and very close to the Beech Mtn Golf Course and Clubhouse. After a day of adventure, relax in the cozy Living room, watch tv, play cards or a board game. The kids can retreat to the loft to sit on the Spudbag and watch a movie. Our Gingerbread house has all the comforts of home. Summertime temperatures in the 70s provide a refreshing relief from the summer heat. As the leaves turn gold, orange, and red in the autumn, the array of color stretching across the mountain range is breathtaking. When the snow falls, Beech Mountain becomes a winter wonderland with snow skiing/boarding, ice skating, snow tubing and sledding. As our guest, you may enjoy full privileges at the Beech Mountain Club (fees are charged at the facilities). In Season, enjoy a round of golf at Beech Mountain’s 18-hole championship golf course, play on one of the tennis courts, or lounge around the heated swimming pool. There is a fitness center open year round that provides classes to satisfy your exercise needs. You can take a hike and picnic by the creeks or waterfalls as you watch the wildlife surrounding you. If you’d like to explore areas off the Mountain, we are convenient to Grandfather Mountain, Linville, Tweetsie Railroad, Banner Elk, Boone, Blowing Rock, and Valle Crucis where you can enjoy horseback riding, whitewater rafting, fly fishing, ziplines, shopping, dining, Lees-McRae and Appalachian Summer Arts Programs and ASU Football.

This cabin is in a residential area close to the Beech Resort. Our family stayed here for a 5 day winter visit to the area to enjoy the winter sports. The cabin is clean, and has all the basic comforts you need to rest and regroup after a day of winter fun at the resort. Don't expect to do too much over the internet however, it is a bit slow, but functional for email and basic navigation - which for a remote location is just about all you could ask for.

I'm sorry you struggled with the internet. Our internet provider, Skybest, notified us in January they are upgrading the service in our area to 45Mbps effective March 1, 2017.

Stephanie and her husband were absolutely fantastic hosts. My wife, myself, and our three children- ages 5, 4, and 2.5- stayed 5 days to ski Beech Mountain. The house was perfect for our family and conveniently located to the slopes, restaurants, and ski rentals/ general store. It snowed, and Stephanie and her husband drove to the house and helped us get off the mountain safely (as we drove minivan). They even bought us snow chains, which we wound up not needing, thankfully. This place and its lively hosts made our first family vacation everything we hoped it would be. Highly recommend staying there!!!!!

It was our pleasure meeting you and your beautiful family. I'm glad you all were able to enjoy all that Beech Mountain has to offer, even the natural snow at departure.

Very cute house with room for all 6 of us! Games and movies galore - wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy them all. Fireplace (and heat) kept the house very cozy. Very clean. Had everything we needed to cook all of our meals so we didn't have to eat out all the time. About 5 minutes up to Beech Mountain Ski Resort - was pretty empty on Christmas day - but we had rain the day before and no new snow. Neighborhood is quite charming - lots of nice, well-kept homes, and not on top of one another. View is beautiful! The first night we were there deer came close enough to the deck that our kids could feed them with the corn the owners left for this purpose. Would stay here again if we're in the area.

Thank you for sharing these tips with me. I will update my listing, those gravel back roads can be terrible, especially if you get car sick. I have WIFI checked but will also check Internet. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit.
