About Old Beau Luxury Motorcoach Resort
Barry and Laura Poole, a husband and wife team, have been business partners most of theirrelationship of over 37 years.
Barry’s land development projects, starting over 40 years ago in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, now span across the southeastern United States. Laura worked in sales and marketing most of her career, and spent more than 10 years in public education.
Barry and Laura have been in the luxury motorcoach development business since 2007. Olde Beau Luxury Motorcoach Resort in Roaring Gap, NC is the fourth development in the motorcoach industry and showcases the couples’ extensive experience in luxury lot ownership and
development. “What we have learned from 16 years in the motorcoach development business brings together our past experiences in real estate, our personal transition to full-time-RVing and learning from all the visitors we meet” says Barry. Living full time in their own motorcoach give Barry and Laura a unique perspective on how to make the most of each lot available at Olde Beau. They offer buyers over 27 years of combined motorcoach lot development experience. The expertise Barry and Laura have gained creates the optimum environment for you to purchase your lot.
The newest development is truly one of the most unique opportunities for motorcoach living in the Blue Ridge mountains. Nestled within the gates of Olde Beau Golf Resort, located in historic Roaring Gap, North Carolina, this motorcoach resort is destined to become the premier mountain home for motorcoach lot ownership. Olde Beau Resort offers true five-star amenities with an 18-hole championship golf course, par 3 course, golf practice facility, fine dining, recreation complex with indoor/outdoor pools, tennis and pickle ball courts, fully equipped exercise facility, seven miles of hiking trails all while sitting within a half mile of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Motorcoach
villages are gated communities dispersed throughout the greater resort. Raising the standards of luxury motorcoach living, each boutique village offers oversized lots and unique custom coach cottages ranging from 850 to nearly 1800 square feet.
Meet Billy Packer
About 14 years ago Barry met Billy Packer while Mr. Packer was exploring ideas for Olde Beau
Golf and Resort. Poole’s first motorcoach development, Deer Creek Golf Park, was a successful endeavor in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Mr. Packer was intrigued with the idea and the two began working toward a partnership. It took ten years for all the elements to come together.
Mr. Packer, renowned CBS college basketball sports broadcaster, has been focused on various
real estate endeavors since his days on television. Mr. Packer became a co-owner of Olde Beau
Golf and Resort in the early 1990’s and has nurtured the development in Roaring Gap, North
Carolina ever since.
Mr. Packer’s vision for the 850+ acre resort never ceased to expand. Packer’s goal was for “people to be able to say, “This is a special place, and I can afford it.” Because of his perseverance and
leadership, Olde Beau is the most affordable quality resort destination in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The development of the luxury motorcoach neighborhoods within the Olde Beau Resort have energized the club membership, improved and enhanced amenities, and increased values within the gates of this mountain compound. Today, Mr. Packer’s legacy and vision are strongly affirmed as the Poole and Packer/Kimberly families continue their partnership to create a truly one of a kind motorcoach ownership experience.

My wife and I first visited the Olde Beau Motorcoach Resort in May 2019. We found the amenities to be first class and the Country Club restaurant to be a Five Star experience. In July we joined the Olde Beau community with the purchase of a lot in the Motorcoach Resort and have already made great friends.
We are so pleased to be a part of the new motorcoach resort at Olde Beau. The community, people, and beauty of this part of the country and Blue Ridge Mountains are second to none. We love the remote feeling of being in the mountains close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the New River, but appreciate being such a short distance from I-77 when we are ready to travel in our RV. The option to build a coach house on our lot makes this the perfect place for entertaining and making lifelong memories with family and friends.
My wife and I were looking for an RV site on a golf course for the summer months and fell in love with Olde Beau at first sight!. Besides the great golf, food and amenities, the people who live there greeted us warmly and invite everyone to join in all the community activities. The elevation keeps the summers pleasant and you can enjoy being there in the spring as well as staying for the beautiful fall foliage.
We stayed in one of the resort cottages and played the golf course. The cottage was great and the golf course was in great condition. The cottage was located on the 18th hole and the view was spectacular from the deck.
My husband and I have called Olde Beau home for 24 years. Wonderful restaurant, beautiful golf corse, the back nine is a real challenge. Views from many Tee boxes are breathtaking.
Wonderful place! Just beautiful. Gorgeous golf course. You’ll have to try the chiefs special carrot cake, delicious!
We visited Olde Beau during the fall, the weekend before Halloween to be exact, and it was breathtakingly beautiful. You cannot beat the views, the freshness of the mountain air, or the pure peacefulness of it all.
