I think it's very hard not to stop by Fred's General Mercantile when one visits Beech Mountain! Number one, everyone talks about the place; Number two, the place has never closed since its open in 1979! The Backside Deli is downstairs and only opens for breakfast and lunch. We only went for breakfast and it was good (nothing extraordinary good.) Belgian Waffle was tasty but was way over priced! The server was very friendly and the service was great. However, what impressed me the most was the General Store Section on the first and the second floor. I have never seen more comprehensive general store than Fred's. if you need something... it'll be there! We bought coffee, coffee creamer, water, homemade brownies, snacks, vegetable and fruits, souvenir towel,... but that's not all...there are rental movies, books, Christmas ornaments, clothing, shoes, hardware and kitchen items. Ski rentals also at downstairs and the guy was very knowledgeable.
