"Coming back to the low lands (Florida) after 2 weeks at “The Crest” is almost too depressing to talk about. But I feel we must share what a wonderful and exciting experience we had there, (even though I secretly would like to keep it to myself). As has been written before, the views from “The Crest” are beautiful! Joe and I looked forward EVERY afternoon, after hours looking for our own piece of Zion (land), to having a cocktail and appetizers in the backyard. Very therapeutic!
The home has a warm, comfortable, and very inviting feel to it. We never lacked for anything, Ingles groceries was only 5 miles away toward Boone and Lowes Foods in Banner Elk is about 7 miles in the other direction. Lowes was our favorite grocery store. It has a GREAT wine section and the steak selection was second to none, especially on sale!
We NEVER missed not having HBO or Netflix to entertain us, the local stations were just fine! However, I will say my husband and I both bought our laptop and all-in-one computer to search for properties and to keep current on certain events (wireless internet was great). BTW, the up-stairs loft made an excellent command center! Very open concept with a table and 4 chairs, and if you have children, they would love the cowboy theme twin beds, very cute!
Joe and I did walk to Hebron Falls which is down the road from this home, (take the first left where the sign is for Woodridge. It’s a very pretty stream, make sure you have good hiking shoes though.
Joe thoroughly enjoyed cooking on the new grill, I’m pretty sure we used it every night.
All in all we loved our stay at the Crest, Judy is a very gracious and helpful Hostess! We are counting the days when we can get away and come back to the CREST!
All the best,
Joe and Trish"

"Beautiful, homey, large cabin with plenty of room for our family vacation. We had a 15 month old with us, so we really appreciated all the "extras" to accommodate a little one like gates for the stairs, pack-n-play, and toys. The cabin is so beautiful inside with mountain decor! We really enjoyed the deck with plenty of sitting areas, a water feature, gas grill and hot tub. Also enjoyed a family game night in the media room. Location is great: we spent a day in nearby Lake Lure and Chimney Rock and also enjoyed KidSense interactive museum. for little ones located in Rutherfordton."

"The place was great. The photos are accurate. Nice, peaceful setting. Everything worked, Plenty of hot water. Comfortable beds. TV reception was excellent. Well stocked kitchen. Banner Elk is small but has a Food Lion, coffee shop, and restaurants with reasonable prices. Boone is not far away and has everything you need. We were there in the summer and there was plenty to do in the area. Elevation is approximately 4100 feet which means mild summer weather!"

"This was our second stay at Sugar Top in this beautiful condo. The first time was much colder in the winter months but still wonderful. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed the beautiful views and all the nice amenities of the condo. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home again!"
