Our recent stay at Sugar Top 2809 from 10-29 to 11/12- 2017

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our recent stay as we have always been. The owner had done some very nice remodeling, which was very welcome, especially the secure internet. We hope to be able to come again next year, health permitting however it will not be so late in the year. We (my husband) wanted to check out the cold weather, me, I was born in Bakersville so I already knew about the cold but it was not that cold for me and he sort of enjoyed it also. The owner made us feel very welcome. I would highly reccomend this to everyone who would like a mountain stay

Lovely views!

  • 4 of 5

We were so happy to have time at this wonderful condo at such an AMAZING price! While the resort was completely family friendly, we found ourselves to be the only family with young children during our visit. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is your condo! We were amazed at how quiet the resort was at what we would consider peak season (October). There are so many great things to do and places to visit close to this resort. We are hopeful to return! Thank you to the Moen family for sharing their space with our family.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a great time. We also enjoy the peace & privacy at our resort. The condo’s are privately owned with many seasonal owners & most owners do not rent out their condo. Thank you for being our guests.

I had often wondered what the tall white building seen from Grandfather Mountain entailed. Now I know. Except for cloud/fog on day 2-3 over summit, all was comfortable.

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Having gone to school in Boone, I wasn't sure I wanted to be outside of town, but oh my goodness I couldn't have picked a better fit for our family. The condo was immaculately clean, and had absolutely everything we needed, even down to salt and pepper. We were quite impressed with the very spacious living and dining room, and perfectly separated bedrooms each with their own bathroom. The second bedroom we used for the kids and they LOVED it. Having their own space made it even nicer for us. The views are spectacular from the balcony, and for those nights you want to snuggle up, there is s fire place all ready to go. All in all this was a great vacation for us!

A comfortable, enjoyable stay in a nice condo

  • 5 of 5

First, we were astonished at just how the real setting looks even though we'd seen some photos. The elevation at our condo put us nearly level with the top of the ski lift just hundreds of yards distant from our balcony. And the building is startling, a very long ten story building on the very top of at mile-high mountain accessed from a serpentine 2 mile drive up the mountain. There are 320 units in the facility and so far as I could tell, they are all alike with about 1000 square feet of very nicely arranged space--no cramping of anything. The building was built 30+ years ago and has been keep updated and well maintained. The staff is one step better than perfect--kind, helpful, considerate, joyful and always available.

Like the facility our condo has been updated and well-maintained over the years, just what one would expect from someone's full-time home. It isn't that at all but that is what it feels like. All the expected equipment and materials were there and serviceable and that included a washer and drier. We never had to say, "I wish we had XXXX," The queen bed was comfortable, the wifi connection excellent and the TV programming fine. There were many booklets, pamphlets and flyers to put together days of enjoyment and many places to dine if one didn't want to cook. It is a good place to stay.

There is one thing that takes a bit of "getting used to" and that is the parking situation. There are only 98 parking spaces and owners get priority so adjacent lots are put to use. One parks there and a van will magically appear in minutes to take you to the lobby. Step out of the elevator into the lobby and the van will likely be there but if not it will be in 3 minutes. That service is 24 hours every day. However, upon arrival and departure one drives right to the lobby for loading and unloading onto the luggage carts.

FULL DISCLOSURE: We are "value" conscious meaning that we pick the least expensive everything congruent with our satisfaction. We don't by anything because of name or popularity but because it satisfies our personal requirements. That often means we do not choose the least expensive. Our choice in this condo was that it was a very good value and much less expensive than many others so much so that our saving could easily buy us dinner-out daily or admission to a local feature. Advertisers don't like to hear that but it is their problem.
