In addition, the lower level ceiling, walls, and beams have been freshly painted, and the exterior steps and deck have been painted with a high-traction coating. The Aspen Ski Loft is a round house with two levels, the main level has a living room with rock fireplace with a wood pellet insert that keeps the house toasty warm, the wood pellet stove is controlled by the wall thermostat you can have a nice warm fire in 10 minutes. There is a flat screen t.v., sectional sofa, slipper chair and ottoman; the dining area has a bar height table with four chairs; the kitchen has a tiled island with two bar stools, the countertops are also tiled with matching tile backsplash, a small oven, full size dishwasher and refrigerator with freezer and ice maker; the master bedroom has a queen bed and a private bathroom with shower and soaking tub; the guest bedroom also has a queen bed; there is a second bathroom with shower/tub off of the living room.

The deck has a dining set for four, propane gas grill and long range views of Western North Carolina mountains. The house is located approximately 50 steps from the top of the 'Lower Shawneehaw' ski lift. You can literally walk across the street, strap on your skis or boards, and start skiing! Although the road is maintained by the Town of Beech Mountain, the house is located across the street from the ski slopes, therefore there is blowing snow that accumulates on the road so a 4 wheel drive vehicle or snow chains are recommended during the winter months. You also have access to Beech Mountain Club - Golf, Tennis, Swim (seasonal) Fitness Center (year around).
Summers are cool, quiet and lovely, with time for shopping, hiking, whitewater rafting, golf and swimming, as well as Tweetsie Railroad and Emerald Mining for the kids. In addition, there is Grandfather Mountain, with its mile-high swinging bridge and the wonderful Highland Games. Should you want to eat out, several great restaurants are very close by, whether it is a 10 minute drive into Banner Elk or 17 mile drive to Boone. For a small fee, guests have access to the Beech Mountain Club, with 18 hole Golf, Golf Clubhouse, fitness center, private restaurant, Children's Day Camp, tennis, Olympic pool and hiking.
Great for couples, honeymooners, retirees, snowbirds, young people, golfers, tennis players, skiers, snowboarders, tubers, etc.
