At the top of Beech Mountain Resort is a one-of-a-kind amenity where guests are invited to take a break. Constructed in 2013, Beech Mountain Resort added a facility named 5506′, paying tribute to the elevation that gives us the title of the highest ski area in eastern America. 5506′ is a structure like no other that consists of: a 2800 ft.² deck with Adirondack chairs and picnic tables; a glass roundhouse complete with bar, bar stools, and tables, a snack bar as well as restrooms.
5506′ is open in the summer time between Memorial Day and Labor Day Thursday thru Sunday.
The breathtaking views are unparalleled with a beautiful panorama of the Blue Ridge Mountains as they span North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
The snack bar at 5506′ offers chips, candy bars and drinks. Inside of the cozy, glass roundhouse, a full-service bar provides a wide selection of well and top-shelf liquors, mixed drinks, wine, and, of course, a selection of our very own Beech Mountain Brewing Company beers are on tap. With such an array of choices, it is no wonder why 5506′ has become the go-to summer hang out!
When the weather is just right, the roof on the glass roundhouse retracts to allow guests an event like no other. When retracted, the beautiful Carolina blue skies seem touchable! Not often can a more delightful experience be had than what is found when visiting 5506′. Enjoy live music every Saturday, take a unique yoga class, or just relax! 5506′ has plenty of activities to entertain the entire family.
