About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Breath-taking views, gated mountain top retreat, spacious 1100 sq ft condo designed with family in mind but perfect for a couples Get-a-way retreat!

Banner Elk, NC provides the perfect back drop for this condo located at the top of Sugar Mountain. Located on the 5th floor, the stars are within your reach at night and the mountains are beautiful to wake up to! The master suite is located on one side with the living area between the quest room and bath, allowing privacy and ample room for enjoyment.

There is no bad time to visit. Spring brings the beautiful colors of the mountain to life and the hiking trails will allow you to see the waking of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Summer supplies a break from the heat with the cooler temperatures, golf, fishing, swimming & boating, white water rafting/kayaking, horseback riding and for the truly adventurous, zip lining! Fall is beauty beyond your imagination, the trees supply more color than any artist rendering, and one you must see for yourself! Winter is a blast if you enjoy the “colder” sports. Within a short drive/shuttle, you will find Skiing, Snowboarding, ice skating and tubing. The wood burning fireplace will be a welcome sight while you snuggle with your loved one sipping a glass of wine or wrestling with the kids who still have energy after a day in the snow!

The friendly staff at Sugar Top will answer any question you might have & are locals who know where the best places are for whatever you are looking for that day! The resort has a glassed-in year round pool with a waterfall that is sure to be a hit with children and allows a great view of the slopes. The pool, hot tub, dry sauna, steam room & fitness room are located just off the lobby so that you never have to go outside to enjoy the amenities.

We have furnished this condo with your convenience in mind and do visit as much as we can. WiFi is present in the lobby and the unit has cable TV in the living room and bedrooms, DVD/VHS player, stereo and washer & dryer. Comfortable balcony furniture is supplied and makes it difficult to go inside.

There is a two night minimum stay but hope that you’ll want more. If coming to the mountain in the winter, please be prepared with 4-wheel drive vehicle or stop at any of the three locations in Banner Elk to purchase snow chains before attempting the trip to the top. Sorry, NO PETS are permitted due to HOA regulations.

We fell in Love with this mountain, the people and this Resort. Come stay with us and we hope you’ll do the same!!!

About The Owner

Married for 35yrs, 3 children, 7 grandchildren, enjoy Nascar, bowling, hunting, traveling and spending time with family & friends.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Sugar Mountain

I found this condo while looking for accomodations within a easy drive to Bristol Motor Speedway. Fell in love with the resort and after four years of renting decided to buy.

What makes this condo unique

The amenities are top notch and you don't have to go outside to enjoy them. The surrounding towns offer more entertainment and the dining selections are great!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr. And Mrs. Beers,

Thank you so much for sharing your rental with us the past three nights. We had a wonderful time. The view up there is unbelievable. It snowed just enough each day to make the scenery absolutely breathtaking! We all had an experience that we will treasure forever. The kids fell in love with the mountains on their very first trip! Your condo was very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. (Although my wife would agree with Ms. Beers on the bed:)

The staff there was also unbelievable! All were so helpful!

Thanks again for sharing your condo and we hope to visit again.

Perfect condo to relax in after hitting the slopes.

  • 5 of 5

This Sugar Top condo checks all of the boxes for comfort and convenience. With incredible views of Grandfather Mountain, 24 hour security, and pool/hot tub/steam room/sauna combo you can't beat it. It's a short drive down to Sugar Mountain and 25 minutes from Beech, so you've two ski hills to explore. The interior of the condo is exactly as described, and with a grocery store less than five minutes away there's no need to leave except to hit the slopes.
