We came down for the Fall Bristol race and had a great time, Everybody was very friendly and helpful. Great food, especially the pecan trout. Cold beer at the bar, Steve the owner even brought them to us out on the patio. Wonderful company. What more could you ask for. We will be returning soon!!!

We went to Beech Mountain as part of a small family reunion, and we booked four rooms in the Beech Alpen Inn a few days after Christmas. The rooms were spacious enough, nothing fancy, relatively clean. The staff, however, was wonderful: helpful, understanding, and patient.

If you're going to ski Beech Mountain, the Beech Alpen Inn is a great place to lodge. The free shuttle runs back and forth, and the Inn is just 5 minutes from the slopes.

Amenities include continental breakfast (patries, hot and cold cereals (from packets), juices, coffee and tea, and some fruit.) It was fine for most of our party; those who were diet-conscious, however, were out of luck except for the fruit. The inn also offers wireless internet, which we could not get from our room but could get from the lobby and the restaurant. Some rooms did get a signal.

There were nice touches, such as warming lights that feel great after a cold day on the slopes, and white-tailed deer that feed right out in front of the inn at dusk and twilight. There is a huge TV upstairs in the guests' lounge that would be perfect for watching a movie or a big game.

The inn also has a bar and restaurant that do good business at night; the restaurant is a little pricey, but the food is good and it's very convenient.

Overall, I recommend the Beech Alpen Inn as a fine place to stay while skiing Beech.

I'm telling you right now - this is an awesome place to stay! Pet friendly, the innkeeper, Stephen, goes out of his way to be accommodating. Our room was spacious and included a fridge and a microwave oven, which was great for snacking and staying in. The grounds are beautiful, and our room had a window seat that our dog loved to sit on and sniff the cool mountain air. There was a continental breakfast served - my husband went every morning, but I slept in. He enjoyed it! The rates were reasonable, and it was the perfect getaway - only five hours from Atlanta! What a way to beat the heat!
