Family Fun Month

June is Family Fun Month on Beech Mtn

June is "Family Fun Month" with 30 days of family activities (see calendar below), plus discount lodging specials like buy three nights, get a fourth night free. When was the last time your family enjoyed a hike together, played in a creek, rode mountain bikes, or watched a movie under the stars? On Beech Mountain, the pace is slower, the air is cooler, the locals are friendlier, and families are welcome to relax and take a real break from the outside world.

All this and more awaits you this June in Eastern America's Highest Town.
