About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Nestled in nature, this 3bd/2ba log cabin ranch home is the perfect combination of modern convenience with old world charm. The majestic long range view is breathtaking! Relax and enjoy family and friends from the wrap around deck complete with rockers, chairs, and a picnic table for serving dinner and drinks.

The massive wood burning stone fireplace in the den creates an atmosphere of relaxed family times. Remember when you enjoyed evenings with the family playing board games or cards? We have those for your use to reconnect with those times and make new memories. Of course , the new 42' flatscreen TV with expanded cable and DVD remind us that modern conveniences are great, too.

The kitchen is complete with new stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and all the necessities to prepare those home cooked meals. The washer and dryer are located in the laundry room off the hall. The dining area seats 6 and is open to the living and kitchen areas. The living area has new 'heart pine flooring' and oriental rugs.

The large master bedroom has a king size 4 poster bed, dresser with mirror, nightstand, ceiling fan with lights, large walk-in closet and private bath with tub/shower combination. The second bedroom has a queen size 4 poster bed, dresser with mirror, night stand, ceiliing fan with lights, and a large walk-in closet. The third bedroom has two twin beds, dresser, mirror, ceiling fan with lights, and a large walk-in closet. The second and third bedrooms share a bath with tub/shower combination. All rooms have individual heating controls to insure your total comfort in each of the rooms.

Our cabin is located on the last road on Sugar Mountain facing Beech Mountain. The land below is undeveloped and the only home you see behind the property is the little farm (complete with red barn) at the base of the mountain. Remember when you could hear the birds and the wind when you walked outside without other man made sounds? You will find that here. If you hear a car, it will be coming down the driveway !

We are convenient to all of the restaurants and attractions in Banner Elk, Blowing Rock and Boone. There are always so many things to do in the Highlands that you could stay for weeks and never repeat your activities!!!

About Carole Blocker

Married for 35 years, Manager with a Fortune 500 food company with 39 years of experience. My wife is a Realtor. We have 3 sons, a daughter-in-law and one granddaughter and one grandson. Love our English Bulldogs.

Carole Blocker purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Carole Blocker chose Sugar Mountain

Always vacationed in the area when the kids were growing up. One of our sons was on scholarship as a baseball player at Appalacian State University. We purchased this with the intent of selling it after his career at ASU. That was 12 years ago and I doubt we would ever sell our cabin. It is used by our whole family and many friends as their vacation rental. Many use it repeatedly.

What makes this cabin unique

We go as often as we can. It is perfect for family gatherings or when my wife and I just want to get away. After all these years we still get excited about our time here. This is where you can totally relax, unwind, read a book, enjoy fabulous restaurants, take a nature walk, shop, antique, visit the Mast General Store, go horseback riding, ride the Blue Ridge Parkway, picnic, hike, fish, ski, play golf, play tennis, listen to bluegrass, eat barbeque at Woodlands Barbeque and enjoy the nightly music, see a play, browse art shops, go to Kelwin's for ice cream and fudge, look for furniture, drive to see the Bristol 500, go to craft shows, shop the pottery shops, go to the outlet mall, etc., etc., etc.

Peace. Quiet. Unrivaled views from deck & master bedroom at the summit of Sugar Mountain

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful, spacious and very well decorated. It’s equipped with everything you will need for a home away from home. The bedrooms are all large and waking up to the view from the large master bedroom windows is therapeutic in itself. Being on top of the mountain means it is incredibly peaceful at all hours of the day and night.

The deck is huge and looks onto the same uninterrupted views of Beach Mountain. Totally relaxing evenings with a beer.

We loved our short break and will be back for some winter fun.

Would highly recommend this property for families or friends looking to vacation together.

Loved this cozy cabin. Was perfect for 3 girlfriends for our trip. Clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable cabin for our girls trip. Log cabin and furnishings really add to that retreat feel. It is at the top of the mountain, beautiful views of Grandfather Mountain and pretty sunsets. No AC, so we had the windows open and used ceiling fans. Very conveniently located for what we wanted to do. Explored Boone and Blowing Rock, ate most nights in Banner Elk. Wine by the stream at Grandfather Winery was also nice and relaxing. Wonderful communities. Owner very easy to work with and very nice.

Good experience

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as advertised location is great and the fireplace was awesome. Sprayer nozzle in the sink comes on same time as water faucet and should be fixed (not a big deal). I’d definitely do this place again - view off the back deck is crazy.

Very clean house

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean which is very important to me. The furnishings were good. It could use a full size mirror and a bigger one in the master bath. When the door was open into the master bath it did not leave you much mirror to see how to put make up on. Those were very small things but would be nice. I would stay again it was a lovely home.

Loved the views! Close to many of our activities

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was ideal for our family of four. Easy instructions when arriving and departing. Living areas and bedrooms were spacious. Grateful for ability to do laundry. Views through the windows and off the deck were gorgeous. We cooked breakfast each morning, but used the owner's recommendations of restaurants for lunch and dinner - never had a bad meal. Close to Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, golf, zip lines, and Blue Ridge Parkway.
