If I am interested in becoming a Member of the Beech Mountain Club, what do I do?
Please visit the Membership Sales office located on the right side of the Brick Oven Restaurant, 402 Beech Mountain Parkway, across from Town Hall or call 828.387.4208 and ask about membership.
If I am not a member, can I use the Club Facilities?
Guests of members are welcome to use the Club in the following ways:
- Members may accompany their Guests while using the facilities. There are no guest card fees in this case, but user fees apply for some facilities.
- Members may sponsor Unaccompanied Guests who are renting their Club membership property. Member owned rentals may be managed by local rental agents who can assist you with rentals that provide Club access. Unaccompanied Guests must be registered by the member or their rental agent at least 72 hours prior to arrival. There are guest card fees and user fees for some facilities.
- Member owners of rental property may Transfer their membership temporarily to Guests. These are normally for one week or more and limited to twice a month for each Member. During the period of Transfer, the Member gives up their right to use the Club and the Guest is considered a Transfer Member with nearly all the rights and privileges of a Member including paying Member rates for user fees. There are fees associated with a Transfer Membership.
For more information about any of these options including fee schedules, please call Administration 828.387.4208 or visit the office located at 103 Lakeledge Road. The office is open Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 5:00pm, and Saturday 9:00am – 3:00pm during the season, and Tuesday – Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm in the winter.
How can I make sure the Member or their agent complete the appropriate forms to sponsor me as an Unaccompanied Guest or Transfer Member?
First, make sure the home you are renting has active membership making guests eligible to use the Club. Not all rental property owners on Beech Mountain maintain active membership. Members and agents renting Club-eligible property should know about the Unaccompanied Guest Request Form or Transfer Membership Form. Please ask them to complete the appropriate form well in advance of your visit, and if they are not aware of the forms ask them to contact Administration at 828.387.4208 for more information.
If I am a Guest, do I have to pay to use facilities or activities?
