~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 is 1702 sq. ft. and has three (3) bedrooms (Q, Q, Q) all with black-out curtains and their own TVs/Blu-ray players, 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 with outdoor furniture and a gas grill. There is an outdoor table with 6 chairs for outdoor dining or relaxing. 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 a 3-in-1 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.

What a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Woodland Retreat is a beautiful and well-appointed house, with a gorgeous view. Everything you could need for a stay is there. I wish we had had more time to just hang out at the house.

Great spot to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We were able to spend valuable family face time together on this trip. We went zip lining and climbing at High Adventure, checked out the general store, drove around, played around the creek, spent time outdoors, played pool & air hockey in the garage (with a heater), played games inside, read, snuggled, watched a movie and made homemade meals all in just a three night stay. It was cool they had games available for us to use as well. I taught my boys how to play backgammon! Our family was very happy with our time spent together and the amazing mountain views!

Views even more beautiful than the photos

  • 5 of 5

The views from "Woodland Retreat" are spectacular! Because of the windows and sliding glass doors in the living room and dining room and the open floor plan, you have a wonderful view of the mountains even from the kitchen! The porch wraps about 2/3 of the way around the home and on a nice day is a lovely place to relax. It's westward facing, so sunsets are a real treat.

As a family of 7 adults with 2 dogs, the home offered plenty of room and comfort. There is plenty of seating in both the living room and dining room. We especially enjoyed the gas fireplace which is situated between the living and dining rooms, offering its warmth and beauty wherever you are in the common area. The wifi is fast and reliable--very important to our college students who were vacationing with us.

Beech Mountain is a perfect mountain vacation destination if you don't want spend your vacation driving to get to some beautiful trails. There are three waterfalls on the mountain: you can see the one at Perry Park from the road (or have a picnic there), take a moderate hike from Buckeye Rec Ctr to see another (check with center to make sure there has been sufficient rain--the fall can be a trickle to a large fall depending) or (our favorite) an entire hike next to a series of waterfalls and cascades on the Lower Pond Trail. We got the treat of seeing a black bear crossing the road on our way back from the Buckeye Rec center at dusk.

Kristen, the owner, is quick on communication and is flexible, gracious, and easy to deal with.

This was our second visit to this property. We hope to return again!

Lovely home with a beautiful view and an accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights and it was such a wonderful stay here at Kristen's mountain house. We came in mid-September so the leaves were changing colors, which added to the beautiful view. The owner Kristen was very helpful and communicative when we had questions. The back deck is a dream, and overall, you have great privacy there. House was clean, and stocked with kitchen ware, fresh sheets and towels, etc, and that fire place was wonderful! I hope we return again soon and next time, bring some friends! Thanks Kristen and Nick! <3
