Our stay at Press Pause was perfect. As a large family, it provided everything we needed and more. The kitchen was well stocked, beds were so comfortable, lovely furnishings, and the games and details for the kids were such an exciting find. The view from the deck is outstanding. We really felt like we were up in the clouds and didn't want to leave. Next time we come we know we can pack less! Thank you for providing such a comfortable and peaceful space.

Clean easy to access property

Nice sofas, games, puzzles, cookware, fire table, hot tub!!! No cheap rental furnishings that you normally find.
- Kelley, Posted: 04/19/2023
A lot of care and attention went into equipping the house with everything guests might need. Large table was great for card games, puzzles, and sharing a meal. After a cozy weekend, we hope to return again another time.

It’s less than a 5 min drive to beech mt. The hot tub was spacious and functioned well. Game room is fun for kids. Nice living room with a great view. It serves its purpose well.
- Jennifer, Posted: 02/21/2023
The cabin has stunning views and is in a great location. You can walk to Beech Mountain and there is a sledding hill for kids and restaurants nearby. We hope to come back again!

The cabin was lovely and in a excellent location!

Your house is amazing! It's not only clean, but the decorations make it so cozy and cute. We had so much fun on a rainy day with the game room and the hot tub. The views are beautiful and we had everything we needed. Its in a great location. Hope to be back soon!
- Alison, Posted: 11/06/2022
We had such a nice time and your house provided us iwth all the things needed to relax and spend quality time together. We especially loved the coziness of the family room with its great views. The kids loved the game room, hot tub, and the games/puzzles provided. We would definitely stay here again.

This stay was spectacular! I went to school at Appstate so I know how the roads can get but this location was absolutely beautiful and very accessible even for my sedan! The home was completely clean and staged perfectly! My party of 9 truly enjoyed the experience! Host was also very quick to respond even after hours which was so helpful! 100/100 recommend this stay!
- Amit, Posted: 10/27/2022
The place is exactly what we expected for. Perfect vacation home for a group looking for a relaxing time and a great view. Will definitely be back soon.
- Christen, Posted: 10/18/2022
Every year my family and I go to the mountains for a long weekend. We have stayed at many rentals but this was by far the fan favorite. They have everything a kid and “big” kid could need. We were in the game room late into every night. They definitely have thought of families when creating this space and mine can't wait to go back. I already miss the view and the tabletop fire pit. You can drive to beech mountain resort in 2 min or walk! Banner Elk is a quick 15 min drive. I already have family and friends asking where we stayed! Thanks for sharing your home with us!
- Leanne, Posted: 10/04/2022
Thank you for letting us stay! We had so much fun in spite of Hurricane Ian. Lots of family memories were made - Quentin was the pinball champion with a score of 186k!
- Regina, Posted: 09/27/2022
Absolutely loved it!!
- Christina, Posted: 09/20/2022
There was something for everyone in the party from age 3 to 70, this was a great place to stay for Land of Oz's Autumn at Oz event.
- Suzanna, Posted: 09/14/2022
In all my years staying at vacation rentals have I rarely come across a gem like Press Pause. As soon as I entered the house the view took my breath away. Floor to ceiling windows to watch the sunrise. The game room is a kid's paradise. Clean, quiet and comfortable, it's an absolute no brainer!
- Lory, Posted: 09/13/2022
This is by far the nicest house my family has vacationed at in a very long time. From the very moment we arrived after a day of travel, we opened the front door to a comforting entrance, a spectacular view, and found all the essentials needed to start our vacation. Straight through to the easy checkout at the end of the weekend, everything was perfect!
This home had everything we needed and more, from the spacious 3 bedrooms and bathrooms to the large open living space and well-equipped game room that was truly paradise. Close to the ski lift, hiking trails, and Fred's quaint country store with delicious restaurant, while other day excursions were not far away as well.
As “Press Pause,” this home is very appropriately named - we “disconnected” from our devices and reconnected with each other. It truly is a paradise and we will most definitely be back!

Amazing girls weekend! Space is so cozy, living room area lovely. Thank you for hosting us all in your lovely Beech Mountain home so we could could celebrate a special 60th birthday with our dear friend and your neighbor, Patti! The house is lovely and has such great energy.
- Steven, Posted: 09/01/2022
The view from the balcony made the whole trip. We kept the big sliding doors open and the cool air was perfect while we had breakfast or lounged on the huge couch. Design of the place was very unique and fun. Kids loved having the downstairs playroom and so did the adults!

Sit and eat on the porch as much as humanly possible. :) We LOVED hiking the Emerald Outback (so magical!) and the Lower Pond Creek Trail (epic adventure!). We were here with kids aged 12, 9, 8, 7 and 2, and it was perfect for all of us. Driving through Valle Crucis to the original Mast General Store was wonderful. We also loved the pool here on Beech Mountain. Definitely hope to return to this heavenly place in summer. Our new design standard in our homes: "What would "Press Pause" do?" Thank you for sharing this absolutely gorgeous and whimsical home with our two families so cousins and brothers/sisters could come together. We soaked up every ounce of natural beauty, enjoyed all the cozy details, the game room that reminded us of our fav 80s games! And the well stocked kitchen! Thank you - There is love in this home, and it shows.
- Rosa, Posted: 08/08/2022
Your home was inviting, very comfortable and fun! The views are spectacular and location was great … close to trails for hiking and to the ski resort. We had a blast playing pinball, pool and arcade games we haven't played in years - so cool! Your home has everything to make a mountain getaway enjoyable, we'll be back again, thank you!
- Ryan, Posted: 08/07/2022
This house was great! It had everything we needed and more. Its views were stunning and the nature and wildlife were amazing!

If you are looking for the perfect place to recharge, this is it! Stunning views, spacious home, thoughtful detail in the décor throughout, and perfect for all ages. We loved our stay here and the game room was a hit with the kids. We will be back! Press Pause, take a breath, and enjoy!
- Michele, Posted: 07/27/2022
Stunning views, beautiful house, comfy beds and perfect location! Everyone loved the basement and games, and how we need to find a couch like you have in the living room :)! Thank you for an awesome few days to just Press Pause on life!
- Jordan, Posted: 07/20/2022
You guys are amazing hosts. I love how upstairs there is string to make bracelets. The tables and beds are cool and nice. Thank you for letting us stay here.
- Suzanne, Posted: 07/05/2022
We stayed here for my best friends wedding on 4th of July. Perfect location for it. Great time watching fireworks on the balcony and playing on the pinball machine. The wildlife here is wonderful. We saw 2 deer come by the cabin frequently.
- Lori, Posted: 03/20/2022
Your home checks off every box! Warm and inviting, location is amazing, amenities are spot on, all in all, a perfect stay. What a great place for a girls getaway. We will definitely be back!

Our second visit to Press Pause for a weekend trip of skiing and tubing. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home again. Being able to stay again felt like coming home.
- Connie and Chris, Posted: 01/30/2022
Thank you for an amazing weekend! Your home is simply beautiful and absolutely perfect. You have made it a home away from home for anyone that visits! Chris and I can't wait to come back. Thank you!

We cannot thank you enough for everything! Your home is amazing, comfortable, homey and has everything a guest could need and more. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you could possibly need. We are so grateful we had the opportunity to stay at Press Pause.

We are so grateful for the owners for thinking of everything a family might need or want while staying here. All of the little magical, mountain touches were so much appreciated!!
