  • A Wonderful Stay!

    "This was our first time staying at Sugar Meadows. We booked this lovely pet-friendly property back in July with our beloved dog in mind, but she never got to enjoy it. Four days before our arrival, we had to put her down. It was with mixed emotions that my husband and I made this trip to Banner Elk the first week of October to celebrate my birthday. It would have been a perfect place for our 13-year old lab / sheep dog mix to vacation, too. Despite our sadness, we had a wonderful stay in Banner Elk at Sugar Meadows. This well-maintained modern home feels alot like a log cabin, is beautifully decorated, roomy, comfortable, and very clean. Starter paper products, hand and dish soap, spices and some kitchen staples were available. Soft bath and bed linens were a really nice touch! The central heat worked great! Our cell phones functioned just fine (as did the wifi) and the TVs access lots of channels. The well-equipped kitchen and large master bathroom (double vanities) were truly appreciated. The mountain views are nice from the front porch and the area is very quiet and peaceful. You are just minutes from a variety of places to eat and a Food Lion grocery store. We ate several times at Pedalin Pig (great ribs, friendly staff) during our stay. And of course there is plenty to do in the area! We had visited Grandfather Mountain before so we took scenic drives this trip, to the tops of Seven Devils, Sugar and Beech Mountains – great views. The leaves are just beginning to turn fall colors (more in the higher elevations). We shopped at the Mast General Store in Valle Cruses (you get to the Annex first, just keep going), drove miles along the Blue Ridge Parkway (did several short hikes from it, including the one under the viaduct) and also found the beautiful Elk River Falls off Hwy 19e. We took over 200 photos and shot some videos, too. Be careful relying only on the GPS. We found it is not always accurate. Before leaving home and venturing out, we used Google and Google Earth to find the Sugar Meadows property, and also to research and locate places of interest in the area, and this really paid off! Sherry (owner) was easy to work with and has succeeded in providing a lovely retreat for her guests. We highly recommend Sugar Meadows and Banner Elk as year-round destinations to vacation and make new memories."

  • A Perfect Getaway!

    "What a wonderful way to celebrate our 39th anniversary. Blue River Cabin was everything we hoped for and more. From the moment we opened the first entry gate, we felt like a wonderful adventure was about to begin. The cabin is spacious, spotlessly clean, and supplied with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing, totally peaceful getaway. Falling asleep to the sound of the rushing water and waterfalls ...well, it just doesn't get any better than that. We will definitely return, and several of our friends are already wanting to book a stay also!"

  • Peaceful stay

    "We loved staying here. It was so clean and the owners thought of everything. We enjoyed sitting on the pretty patio. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I would definitely recommend this place. If we are ever in the area again we want to stay there."

  • Wonderful place to stay

    "This house was by far one of the best we have stayed in during the last few years. The house was very clean and had just about everything that we needed. Everything was in excellent condition (with the exception of the couch which seemed a little worn) and very enjoyable. I tend to be a germ-a-phobe and I had no problem with anything in this house. My dogs loved the yard and the lake. We really appreciated the gates on the deck. I would highly recommend this property!"
