What's So Special About Sweet Sugar Lookout?
Well, for one thing, you'll feel like you're cuddled up in Grandfather Mountain's lap. That's because you'll be right on one of the most desirable sweet spots of this whole region: Sugar Mountain. From here, you'll have stunning, unobstructed views of beloved Grandfather Mountain from almost every room in the house. You'll also gaze upon Grandfather from the double decks, the oversized hot tub, the beautifully landscaped yard, a rock patio with a fire pit, and the spring-fed pond that comes complete with an on-demand waterfall.
But Sweet Sugar Lookout isn't just drop-dead gorgeous; it's practical too!
Not only will you NOT be surprised by additional linen charges like at most other places, you'll also see that............
The front door and lower level door have electronic key codes, so everyone in your group will be able to get in without having to worry about keys.
There’s a big bench on the front porch. Perfect for taking off messy wet boots and shoes when it's snowing. And lots of porch railing for propping up the skis.
Even though Sweet Sugar Lookout offers privacy and peace, it is unbelievably close to all the things that make the Sugar Mountain area so attractive as a resort. We know, we know! It sounds like a total paradox and impossibility. And we didn't quite believe such a contradiction was possible ourselves. Then we came to Sweet Sugar Lookout the first time. So please trust us on this. You will not be disappointed.
If romance is the idea....snuggle by the stone fireplace. Share a bottle of wine on the decks. Luxuriate in the hot tub, Jacuzzi, or claw-foot soaking tub. Try out the double outdoor swing at the pond's edge. And of course, there are always those glorious views of Grandfather Mountain from most of the bedrooms ...
If you've got outdoor activity and sports on the brain (and in your muscles) then get ready, get set, GO! Sweet Sugar Lookout is a great choice for you. The ski, tubing, and snowboard slopes are close by. The FREE ski shuttle will pick you up at the front door. During the off-season, there are numerous hiking trails, whitewater rafting, tubing, fly fishing, tennis, golf, even horse-riding stables-and they're all close by. And if you're here in autumn, just strolling around in the crisp, crystalline air and the brilliant colors of Mother Nature's leafy artwork can't be beat.
Interested in local color and culture (including shopping and dining)? There are community theaters, winery tours, festivals, galleries, boutiques, pet parades, clubs, and so much more. There are lots of eateries nearby to suit every taste preference and price point. So if you're one of those go-go-go people, don't fret about being bored here. Honestly, that particular thought won't have enough time to even cross your mind!
If you just want to relax, we have lots of ways to perfect that art. So come take a lesson from Grandfather Mountain himself. After all, the mountain has long been described as looking like the profile of an old man reclining and resting. So why not honor that tradition? Sit and meditate by the pond, with a soothing little waterfall that flows at your command. Read a book from our well-stocked bookshelves. Beat your kids at ping pong - we'll provide the table, paddles, and balls. Play a board game from our collection. Stretch out on a comfy recliner in front of the big TV with full channel availability. Or, since we have free Wi-Fi, go ahead and bring whatever device you like to surf the net on. All we're saying is, that if you want to be the World Champion Sofa Spud, you've got our full support. We won't judge!
If you need to get away from it all, but you still need be in touch ... Well, we get it. We understand that, sometimes, the Real World has to come along on your vacation. That's why our wi-fi is free. And if you absolutely, positively need to get some work done while you're here, there's a nice desk in the loft. But just to take a little of the sting out of having to buckle down (even though you're on vacation) the desk comes fully equipped with a great view of Grandfather Mountain.
Looking for a place where you can escape uncomfortable extremes of seasonal temperature? If you hate the hot, sticky swelter of summertime, here's something that might bliss you out just thinking about it: the average temperature during the summer on Sugar Mountain is in the low 70sF. And if you like winter (just so long as it has no resemblance to Antarctica) you'll be happy to know that it's usually just right for comfortable skiing in the high 20sF to low 30sF on Sugar Mountain. In other words, it's also happens to be perfect hot chocolate weather.
What will you have to remember to pack? Not much. Other than what you're going to wear, groceries (and maybe your sports gear), Sweet Sugar Lookout has it covered. We don't want to have to pack up our whole household when we take a trip, so we figure you don't either. That's why we've stocked our kitchen with a supply of coffee, tea, basic spices and condiments, and an array of cookware, bakeware, and tableware. We also provide paper goods - paper towels, napkins, plates, cups, etc. for those days you want to avoid the dishwasher. We provide linens, towels, hair dryers, lighted mirrors, and toilet tissue.
If there's a group of you, there won't be a problem deciding who gets the "good room." That's because we have three master suites with large comfortable beds and great bathrooms. All but one are furnished with great views of Grandfather Mountain. And the one that doesn't have the mountain view makes up for that by being on the same floor as the main living area (no stairs to climb).
If you're looking for a place with accommodations suitable for a large family, there are enough beds for 10 people (or 12 if you count the sofas). Plus we have a Pack & Play, a high chair, and baby gates. And there is a first floor master for those who want to avoid stairs. Sweet Sugar Lookout also comes complete with a laundry room. And since we've already told you about the wide variety of activities in the area, you know that everyone will find something appealing to do.
There will never be a waiting line for a bathroom at Sweet Sugar Lookout. That's because there are a total of 5.5 bathrooms throughout the house. And they come complete with lighted mirrors, hair dryers, and fluffy towels.

We want you to start missing Sweet Sugar Lookout the minute you leave and close the door behind you. And we want to know that you will want to return again simply because it feels like 'your' place. In other words, we want you to feel like we do about this home!
