~Woodland Retreat~

Beech Mountain, NC, Eastern America’s Highest Town!

On the mountains, it's ALL ABOUT THE VIEW - and this home has one of the best unobstructed views year round!!!

This home is remarkably located close to everything Beech Mountain has to offer, but has the added bonus of being very private and secluded on your own mountain top at 4100+ feet on 1.5 acres! The home offers stunning panoramic mountain and valley views year round. This home has three (3) bedrooms (Q, Q, Q), 2 full baths, and a pull-out couch with full mattress, sleeping 8+ people. It is a great all year round Mountain getaway to unwind and relax over the fabulous mountain and valley views. Other highlights of this home are large decks and a gas grill. This home is easily accessible with plenty of parking that easily fits 4+ cars. There are spots in front of the house and garage as well as an adjacent lot to the left of the home facing the mountain. This home has the exclusive Beech Mountain Club Membership. There is a game room setup in the garage with Billiard table, Table Tennis and Powered Air Hockey. The Garage also contains a basic powered treadmill for your use.

Everything in the home has lots of upgrades! Our home has super fast Enhanced Fiber-Optic Broadband speed internet (WiFi), 4 SMART HDTV flat screens in every room (40” in living area and 32” in all bedrooms) with extended Premier cable, and 4 Blu-ray/DVD players. Although there are 3 queen beds and a full sized pull-out couch to accommodate 8 people sharing, we do allow you to bring your own air-beds or sleeping bags to accommodate a maximum of ten (10) people in the home. The home is one level for easy access to all living spaces, but with plenty of privacy.

We do allow a well behaved potty-trained dog. However, crating your dog is required if they are left alone in our home, whether in your own crate, or gated into the kitchen (non-carpeted) area. There is a dog park near-by as well.

There are three parking areas for plenty of space to accommodate vehicles. At least 2 can fit in front of the house, 2 in front of the garage, and 2-3 at the left side lot (NOTE: During the winter when there is snow accumulation on the ground, only the front of the house will be accessible for parking unless you notify me you need the driveway plowed prior to your stay and make necessary arrangements beforehand).

The property is NON-SMOKING.

The advantage of the Octagon shaped house makes you feel you are part of the outdoors.

The kitchen comes well equipped with refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal, Keurig, coffee percolators (plug-in and stove top) and plenty of cooking pots, pans, dishes and glasses of all types. Each bath has a dual shower heads. The house has HE front loading washer and dryer and a sewing machine on site. There is ample deck-space outside with furniture, an enclosed fire-pit and a gas grill. Even when it rains or snows, you can enjoy the main deck section as the ceiling of the deck is covered in addition to being nicely wooded and private.

The home comes with luxury high quality linens and towels, plenty of night lights and liquid soap at all sinks.

Our home is less than 2 miles from the Beech Mountain Ski Resort parking lot. The home also has membership at the Private Beech Mountain Club which allows our guests to obtain an unaccompanied guest pass for a minimal fee. In spring, summer and autumn, the Beech Mountain Club features a championship 18-hole golf course, clubhouse dining, 10 clay tennis courts, a fitness center, 3-zone Olympic sized heated swimming pool (open Memorial - Labor Day), Pickleball, Pavilion, Bocce Ball Courts, Wellness Center, Childrens' day camp, and much more. Year-round you can use the fitness center and massage therapy at the club. http://beechmountainclub.org/

Beech Mountain is also home to the Buckeye Recreation Area which can also be utilized during your stay for nominal weekly or daily a la carte fees. We are located just 1.5 miles away. It has over 50 acres of developed parkland, almost 10 acres of lakes, over 28 miles of designated hiking and biking trails and a 23,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Recreation Center.

It provides the most elevated remedy for relaxation in addition to being on the west side for fabulous sunsets!

This jaw-dropping mountain getaway features an unobstructed panoramic view of Beech Mountain, North Carolina. Beech Mountain is the highest town in Eastern America and is an ideal vacation spot in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains.

From idyllic sunrises to vibrant sunsets, guests here will be spoiled by the beauty of the surrounding mountain ranges. Located less than two miles from Beech Mountain Ski Resort, this incredible versatile property also has a membership at the Private Beech Mountain Club, allowing guests to obtain unaccompanied guest passes for a minimal fee for exclusive access to golfing, tennis, and swimming facilities.

​Perched at over 4,100 feet upon one-and-a-half acres of land, Woodland Retreat maintains the perfect balance between easy access and peaceful seclusion.

Surely an awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 days at this place. It is surely one of the best place we stayed in that region. It has huge big deck outside with long range mountain views. We witnessed awesome fall colors from there. Lot of games for young kids were in living room and garage. Feature of the house were the smart TV in living room as well as all 3 bedrooms. All TVs were pre-configured with ROKU & Netflix. We would highly recommend this place.

Excellent views, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described. Comfortable and met our needs (2 couples). Deck provided a place for excellent views of mountains and changing colors. Property was clean and maintained. "Game room" was in the garage and required descending several stairs to access - no problem for us but bad weather would present a discomfort. If back in the area we would not hesitate to consider staying again.

Nicely maintained with outstanding views.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay as the weather was great and the views from the porch were such that we spent most of our time outside taking it in. Kitchen well stocked. The only request was to have real sheets on the beds inside of the furry ones. They are probably good in the dead of winter, but were very hot during our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Please note that we do provide additional high quality cotton sheets as well in the closet of each bedroom as noted in the house packet for those who prefer one or the other for next time. I always encourage my guests to contact me during your stay if you have any concerns so I could have helped you find them :) The weather is very unpredictable on the mountain so we always have both on hand just in case! I'm glad the rest went well during your stay!

This is a lovely, secluded home with an awesome view , perfect for couples or a family. The owner made sure the home and supplies were well-stocked and organized. Hiking, golf and restaurants are located nearby. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

Only Wonderful Things to Say

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of six were all delighted with the layout, the deer peeking up at us, all the thoughtful touches, the sheer beauty of the views. The boys thought the garage gameroom was made just for them. The bedroom/bathroom arrangement worked perfectly. The living area let us comfortably play games and watch a little TV. But who wanted to be inside when the long, large deck has great chairs for watching the changing sky and trees in wonderful breezes, from early morning until the stars came out. The kitchen has every kind of pot, bowl, appliance and utensil you could want. The coffee is a Kuerig -- be sure to bring the little coffee cups that fit, since sipping coffee on the deck in the morning is such a pleasure. Weather a great, cool trea for June. The trails 2 to 10 minutes away are fantastic. The chair lift 10 minutes away is great fun -- although you can drive up there too. As our daughter said, this house provides the perfect blend of serenity and adventure.
