Property description

Get ready for All-Weather Fun in the Mountains! Sugar Mountain Ski Resort is just a 3-min-drive from 'Casa Monte'.
Arrive home from a day of fun activities to roast marshmallows at the wood burning fireplace and relax in a cozy, warm family home. Grab a rocking chair with your favorite drink on the spacious 600 sq ft deck overlooking the slopes of Sugar Mountain Ski Resort. Watching the night skiers is a delight!
Fun activities for all ages and so close to downtown Banner Elk, nearby Beach Mtn, Valle Crucis, Linville, Grandfather Mtn and Boone.
Dining options aplenty with many nearby casual and gourmet restaurants and a full kitchen with all the amenities you would expect in your own home to prepare your favorite meals.
A 4-wheel drive is a must in the winter as the highways and local roads may be difficult to navigate during winter. We do clear our uphill driveway when it snows for easier navigation.
Did you know that Sugar is North Carolina’s largest snow-sports resort!
Sugar Mountain Resort’s new intermediate level ski slope, “Gunther’s Way”, situated on 9 acres is 150’ wide & 2900’ long with an impressive 700’ vertical terrain. Sugar Mountain’s terrain classification is 34% easy, 52% intermediate and 14% most difficult. The Ski Area spreads over 125 skiable acres offering skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, tubing and snowshoeing. The snowmaking system has expanded to include improvements of over $1mil in 2015.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We have been vacationing in the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains since our earlier camping days. We have always enjoyed the abundant and varied activities that the mountains offer. And the change of seasons are so spectacular. Living in So Florida, a mountain retreat has been the best of both worlds for us. We have so many fond memories of hiking, mountain rappelling, white water rafting, skiing and even zip-lining here with our family. It's a wonderful vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Banner Elk:
We never dreamed of owning a home in Banner Elk but when we were introduced to this lovely home with it's gorgeous view it was love at first sight. We affectionately named it 'Casa Monte' and we've made it quite cozy with plenty of comfortable beds to sleep 8, a nice kitchen/dining area plus a cozy warm fireplace and spacious wood deck with rocking chairs. It's a dream come true!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are so many fun activities for all ages within minutes from Casa Monte.... whitewater rafting, road or mtn cycle, motorcycle touring, mtn climbing, hiking waterfalls, picnic in the park, visit Grandfather zoo, tour a local winery, antique shopping, horseback riding, gourmet dining, live theater at Lees-Macrae College (5 min drive) and ASU in Boone (just 30 mins drive), take a day trip to Asheville & tour the Biltmore House, buy groceries nearby, meet nice people, bring the family or take a girls' trip or motorcycle trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. or simply just relax in the rocking chair with a good book on our spacious deck overlooking Sugar Mtn.
