The Alpen Restaurant and Bar in Beech Mountain North Carolina is part of the Beech Alpen Inn. The Inn was originally built by the Beech Mountain Developers in the 1970’s in a rustic style resembling the great old Inn’s of the European Alps. Since it’s original opening many great restaurants called the Beech Alpen Inn their home. In 2006 the new owners’ Steve, Jane & Fred took the idea further, enhancing the Inn with a new modern kitchen and a new restaurant addition the Mountain view room. The design was strictly guided by the rustic style of the old Inn. The original old Fireplace room has been restored and a cozy Bar was added. The modern Time was not left out. Six large Flat Screen TV’s and also wireless Internet were added, to keep in touch with the world away from the mountains. The AC-System keeps the indoor climate most comfortable on the hottest summer days, a rare feature in the mountains.
Since it’s reopening in July 2007 the Alpen Restaurant and Bar stayed open year round and helped Beech Mountain to be a year round destination again.
