  • 4 of 5

Great, family friendly home. We all felt right at home. My 13 year old daughter said "I love this house". Pretty impressive bc we have rented dozens of different homes across the USA and the kids loved the comfortable, cozy vibe of your house. Great movie collection, lots of towels and several cozy beds. Everyone was very comfortable and happy. We are already thinking of coming back with friends and staying at your home again. Thanks for the hospitality.

A Perfect Weekend.

  • 5 of 5

I'll go ahead and admit it, we had idyllic winter weather. Fresh snow regularly, and the threat of being snowed in... which makes every little kid (and adult who wants to skip out of work) excited. Those things were beyond the control of our property owner. However, everything they could provide - they did. The cabin was amazing. It had great wooded views and a creek. It was spacious and handled our 3 families and all the kids with ease. While the kids weren't outside or on the slopes at absurdly nearby Beech Mountain Ski Resort, they could hang out in the basement with their own TV and gaming system while the adults stayed upstairs and enjoyed the fire.

The cabin was nicely decorated, but in no way such that we ever worried that the kids (ages 7-21) were going to tear something up. There were fresh towels and linens and enough bathrooms to go around. The radiant heaters have individual thermostats in each of the bedrooms allowing you to stay as warm as you needed.

The little details were there. There were snow sleds we could take to the town of Beech Mountain and use on the public sledding hill. The washer and dryer were clearly new and worked flawlessly as we dried out an immense amount of wet snow clothes. The fireplace was large and can handle as big of a fire as you care to maintain.

We're coming back.

The homeowner was also very gracious when we thought we were going to be snowed in. It's clear he was as excited to share his cabin with us as he was to use it himself. Genuinely a great guy who even called to check on us to make sure we had gotten down the mountain ok.

If you're looking to be close to the slopes and the Beech Mountain Village but also feel like you're getting the mountain cabin experience without sacrificing amenities, you've found the right cabin.

Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We (6 adults, 5 kids, and 2 dogs) stayed Feb 25-28. The owner was was extremely nice. We had issues when booking due to multiple payments being drafted by management service. The owner worked with us to make sure every was cleared up. Very nice person and understanding.

The house was great and there was plenty of room of everyone. The house is very close to the Ski Beech as stated in discription. It was basically right across the street. I would recommend using 4 wheel drive or snow chains if snow falls just to be safe.

Overall it was a great experience. We will be staying there again next year. Brendan thank you again for everything and my family are looking forward to coming back next year. Take care.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented the house for MLK weekend and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were super helpful and friendly, communicating very well. The listing description was very accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc. The property was very spacious, clean, and well-maintained. I would recommend this property to anyone who has an interest in Beech Mountain and we will definitely be back to enjoy the beautiful view and homey feel the house provided!
