John Warthman purchased this House in 1979
Why John Warthman chose Charter Hills
We bought this home when we lived in Charlotte and our oldest son was just born. We had visited the mountains during the summer and fell in love with Beech Mountain. A subsequent ski trip further cemented that feeling. During John's summers of his first school years, he lived with his grandparents in 5-bedroom converted stone barn. The Lodge reminded him of those wonderful childhood memories. With the help of his contractor brother Bob, he bought, refurbished, and expanded it as well as added a stone facade to the majority of the house during weekends for 8 months to bring his vision to fruition. For many years now, we've been unable to enjoy the Lodge and its peaceful setting as much as we'd like. Over the forty years we've owned and operated the Lodge, we've been privileged to serve many families and groups. Many of them have returned again and again causing us to think of them as extended family. So, we derive pleasure from the enjoyment they experience as well as the relationships we've formed over the years.
What makes this House unique
The setting of the Lodge combined with materials contained within it just give us the feeling of living in another, less hurried time. However, it's 1.9 miles from the busy Beech Mountain Resort ski slopes. We think it's the perfect combination of yesteryear atmosphere combined with many nearby attractions and modern conveniences.
