Elevate Your R&R.

Nestled amongst North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains at 5,506 feet, Beech Mountain is the highest town in Eastern America. This signature elevation provides cool summers, crisp autumns and snowy winters. Here visitors leave workaday worries behind and enjoy an escape that is both exhilarating and relaxing.

Year-round, Beech Mountain is a cool spot for outdoor adventures. Explore our impressive network of hiking trails, tackle a rugged mountain bike trek through the woods or head over to the Beech Mountain Resort’s lift-assisted downhill mountain biking park. At the Resort you can also enjoy a scenic chairlift ride to the take in the awe-inspiring panoramic views.

What better way to disconnect than to spend a calm afternoon canoeing the serene waters of Buckeye Lake, teaching the little ones to cast a line into one of our two lakes and many creeks or strolling through the woods in search of the over 127 bird species that call Beech home.

Come Autumn, head to Beech Mountain for spectacular color; whether hiking to overlooks in the Emerald Outback or driving along the Beech Mountain Parkway, a stunning view is always right around the corner. And let’s not forget the popular Autumn at Oz Festival which takes place at the old Land of Oz theme park. Stroll the yellow brick road, tour Dorothy’s house, and meet your favorite Oz characters. How cool is that?

Beech is the place to do winter – a charming, snow-covered town right out of a movie set, complete with a ski resort to enjoy the thrills of skiing, snowboarding, tubing and sledding. A wide range of lodging option from secluded hideaways to condos in the center of town offer an array of amenities for groups of any size. Find out more at beechmtn.com
