The Area – High Country
Beech Mountain North Carolina is a small mountaintop community that stretches through both Avery and Watauga Counties. The peak of Beech Mountain is one of the highest in the Blue Ridge Mountain range, and its summit reaches to 5,506 feet above sea level making the Town of Beech Mountain the highest incorporated community east of the Mississippi River. The mountain is home to unique luxury resort developments, Beech Mountain Club, which is home to Beech Mountain Golf Course, and the highest ski resort in the Southeast, Ski Beech Mountain.
There are several unique things about Beech Mountain and its elevation is not the only thing for which it is known. Several decades ago, a theme park that was designed after the Wizard of Oz concept operated as The Land of Oz on Beech Mountain; today, an annual festival, the Autumn at Oz Festival on Beech Mountain, takes place in October and brings thousands of visitors to the tiny mountain top community. There are numerous Inns, Restaurants, and Cabin Rentals located near the summit that have excellent long range views that extend to the states that surround North Carolina. The views from atop Beech Mountain are often photographed and widely recognized as some of the best in the Southeast. Here you can fish in Buckeye Lake, hike around the mountain, or enjoy the many infamous mountain biking roads. We have several great Ski Cams located at Ski Beech North Carolina and these Beech Mountain Cams are hugely popular year round for seeing different views of the area.
