Double the Fun at Beech Mountain with Two Homes in One – 2 living rooms with fireplaces, 2 large wrap-around decks, and kitchen + kitchenette.  Pet friendly.

Description:

Double eating, living, and play space make this a perfect home for 2 small families or 1 large family with teenagers.  If you are a small family on a budget, you could rent only the upstairs, or only the downstairs.  This house is decorated with motivating photos of skiers, boarders, and climbers and has 13 ceiling-to-floor windows and 2 large decks.This creates a feeling of being in the middle of a large playground…which you are.

This quiet home, high in the trees, is less than 2 miles from Beech Mtn ski slopes, the golf course and clubhouse, tennis courts, heated Olympic swimming pool, fitness center, and recreation center with kids programs.  There are also nearby hiking and biking trails.

If you prefer a more relaxing vacation at the home, the upstairs has a living room with fireplace and TV/DVD player with a selection of DVDs, board games and wi-fi internet service.  The dining room has seating for 6 guests and the kitchen is well-equiped with cookware and dining ware.  The master bedroom has a king-size bed and glass-door entrance to the deck.  There is also a twin bedroom and bathroom upstairs.  The upstairs deck has a charcoal grill and casual seating for 6.  This deck has a gate at the stairs to keep a dog or small kids out of trouble and there is a dog house at the back of the wrap-around.

The upstairs and downstairs share an entrance from the outside and a mudroom, but each  have a private, secure entrance off the mudroom.

The downstairs has a living room with fireplace, futon, TV/DVD player, and a selection of DVDs and board games as well.  The kitchenette has a small refrigerator, two-burner stove, microwave, and full range of cooking and dining ware.  The kitchen table seats four.  Also downstairs are a bedroom with a double bed, a bedroom with twin beds, and a bathroom.  The downstairs deck has a large swing on it.

This home is one of the original built on Beech Mountain – with a classic octagon shape and high tongue in groove ceilings supported by large beams.  It is being offered for rent for the first time and has been recently renovated.  It has new paint, new windows, new furniture, new bedding and lighting, and a new TV.   We have enjoyed growing up in this home and hope that you will find it a great base for your adventures on Beech Mountain as well.

Beech Mountain, at 5,506′, is the highest ski resort in Eastern America.  With the highest temperatures in the 70′s, it is a great escape from summer heat too.   In winter, there is skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and ice skating – all within two miles of our home.  In summer, our Beech Mountain Club membership allows our guests access to swimming, tennis, golf, and the fitness and recreation centers and programs – again, all within two miles of our home.

If you are more adventurous, there are even more recreational opportunities – such as rafting, caving, rock climbing, and cross country skiing – within a forty-five minute drive from our home.  Never tried it or don’t have your gear?  There are several oufitters and equipment shops nearby to help.  These are all listed in my extensive Welcome Book along with discount coupons to select outfitters and stores.  Relax and enjoy exploring Beech Mountain and the surrounding High Country!
