About Gary Phillips
Denise and I grew up in Florida (D=Lakeland & G=Sarasota). As such, we were the typical Floridians who fell in the love with the mountains and spent most of our vacations exploring the vast scenic beauty of western NC. In fact, we loved the mountains so much that we eventually sold our small business in order to move here to raise our family in 1991, choosing not to wait until retirement. We settled in the Etowah community which is between Hendersonville, Brevard and Asheville - and never looked back, trading beaches for mountains! It's been awesome living here and having so much to do and see - even driving to and from work can be pleasing to the eye. Denise works at a local bank and I work from home while taking care of my 98 year-old mom. We are also committed to the LORD, very involved in our church and absolutely love our pastors and church family. Our faith in the Creator has led us to appreciate the natural beauty of His mountains. We never tire of its splendor and feel blessed to be able to share a "bird's eye view" of His handiwork with you! Rest assured that we have bent over backwards to offer our guests a beautiful, cozy, comfortable, safe, and clean environment and will promptly respond to any questions or concerns you may have. During your stay you'll also have front desk personnel and building security available 24/7.

Why Gary Phillips chose Sugar Mountain
We've always loved the High Country and have enjoyed staying at the Sugartop Resort Condos a number of times. So much so, we decided to buy one! We now have the best of both worlds, as our home in Etowah is nestled in a wooded setting surrounded by nature while our "vacation" condo at Sugartop overlooks nature with its mountaintop advantages. And the close proximity between the two allows us to visit here often (when available)!
What makes this Condo unique
We understand that you have a lot of accommodation choices in this sought-after vacation destination. This is why we invested in Sugartop Resort Condominiums, and worked so hard to make our condo extra special for our guests. Enjoy the uniqueness of our mountaintop building! Nowhere else will you find a 10-story fortress built atop a mile-high mountain. Everywhere you look are INCREDIBLE views! Our building offers a spacious, well-appointed lobby with a cozy fireplace, sitting areas and ample indoor, year-round amenities. Care for refreshments or dinner on your private balcony as you watch the sunset over the western ranges? Easy to do with our modern, fully-equipped kitchen. Get comfortable in front of a large "Smart TV" to watch your favorite programs or catch a free movie on NetFlix. "Smart TVs" are located in both bedrooms, as well as the living area. Be sure to browse the 50 pictures above (including the floor plan) along with the video to gain a good perspective. Here are some of the advantages of our particular condo: 1) 9th floor location - on the west side of the building, offering some of the best views, including superb sunsets, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort and majestic mountain ranges. 2) Recently renovated - we're now one of the "newer units" in the building and carefully chose furniture and decor to appeal to our valued guests - giving them the feeling of comfort, warmth and mountain living. We also strive to provide a healthy living environment with organic bedding and bath products, as well as "green" cookware (no Teflon!). 3) Cozy and convenient - we've got everything you need for a comfortable, memorable stay! 4) We are "hands on" and work WITH our housekeeping staff to make certain everything is JUST RIGHT! IN A NUTSHELL - enjoy an AWESOME resort condo home for less than some popular hotels - a tremendous value. This is much more than merely a place to toss your suitcases - this is your "home away from home"!

Gary made this experience so easy from the get go! This condo has everything for a perfect mountain vacation. The pictures don’t do it justice! The condo itself is well decorated, comfortable and safe! The views are breathtaking and the balcony is perfect for your morning coffee or anytime of day! We had a great time and look forward to coming back!
On Cloud Nine
This condo is on the 9th floor. We were literally in the clouds and often while looking down, were able to see hawks. The condo was clean and nicely decorated. The bath towels were large and soft. The bed and bed linens were extremely comfortable. It is a great place to get away from it all. Within 30 minutes, travelers are able to be in Boone and/or Blowing Rock. It's a 10 minute drive in to Banner Elk and about a 15-20 minute drive to Beech Mountain. It is also in close proximity to Grandfather Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway. From booking to refunding my deposit and several emails in between, Gary was very responsive.
Absolutely beautiful mountain views!
The property was clean, updated and well maintained.
We ate a few meals in and had everything we needed in the kitchen.
Excellent Rental Property!
This condo was absolutely the cleanest and best prepared rental property my wife and I have ever rented! The owners have taken special care to see that their guests are furnished with all things necessary to ensure a pleasant stay. We have told all our friends about our stay at this 5-star property and will definitely rent this condo again when in the Banner Elk, North Carolina area.
Great views. Unit has everything you need.
Clean, well appointed condo with great views.
Thanks, Patrick - and thanks for taking care of our condo - we welcome you back anytime. Hope you and your sons had a great time together.
This mountain top condo was everything we were hoping for and more! It is beautifully decorated for the mountains, well equipped and the views were amazing. We are already trying to figure out when we can go back to enjoy the area during other seasons.
Thanks for staying in our condo, Chris - we're pleased that you folks had a great time and enjoyed your stay. Staying at Sugartop is a huge blessing in any season, and we love sharing our vacation home and helping people to experience a great vacation. Come back anytime!
