About the property

The Sweet Spot is a newly renovated 1bd/1ba mountain getaway; sleeps 4

**Police, Fire, EMS and Military Discounts Available**

Spring has sprung here in Sugar Mountain. Your mountain getaway awaits !

This wonderful tree house retreat is just a few minutes walk to the lodge, slopes and golf courses at Sugar Mountain. There are not many homes this close the base of Sugar Mountain. Also close by are all of the amenities of the Sugar Mountain Golf Club.

Completely renovated in 2016, this light and airy 1 bedroom/1 bath is absolutely immaculate and comfortably sleeps 4. The unit is furnished with 2 new queen beds, 1 bath with tub/shower, and a fully appointed kitchen with new appliances and all the amenities of home. The unit also features a new washer/dryer. The back deck offers views of Sugar Mtn in the Winter, and a serene place to watch the squirrels play in the warmer months. We strive to make this home, your home.

While we believe all the magic of Sugar Mountain and surrounding Banner Elk happens outside, the unit does feature WiFi, a flat screen TV with access to NetFlix, DVD player, and a small library of movies, books and games.

Sugar Mountain and surrounding Banner Elk has much more to offer than just winter activities. There are great local eateries, wineries, and local historic sites. You can go rafting, caving, hiking and mountain biking. You can swim at Bobcat Lake, or take a drive to the Mast General Store. Take a trip to Grandfather Mountain Winery and wander through the hills and streams with a bottle of their finest. Explore Banner Elk and the surrounding areas, try something new.

Or... you can sit on the porch, nap in the hammock, gather with friends and family... and just do nothing at all. Because sometimes... "nothing" is just what the doctor ordered !

The owner of this property is an 18 year veteran of the American Fire Service.

We want to give back to those who serve, so call or email to inquire about our civil service discount for current/former Police, Fire, EMS or Military. Must be able to provide current drivers license, and proof of service (municipal/military ID, DD214, etc)

About Keith Pertschi

Tanya and I bought this great little place in early 2016. We loved it the minute we stepped in the door. The previous owner had recently renovated the unit, and everything was brand new. We have been coming to Sugar for years to snowboard, and rented MANY condos all over the mountain. Many are very nice, but some were dated and seemed neglected by the absentee owners. The longer we came up, the more we fell in love with Sugar Mtn and surrounding Banner Elk. So, when we toyed with the idea of buying a second home, this little place fell in our lap. If we were unsure about buying a 2nd home in NC, this place wiped all those concerns away. We love this place, and still visit often. This condo is not a business, this is our second home We treat it with the same care and love we give our home in Georgia. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Why Keith Pertschi chose Banner Elk

Tanya and I are avid snowboarders. This property caught our eye due to its INSANELY close proximity to the slopes. Not only that, but the ride to Beech Mountain is less than 25 minutes. Most other amenities on the mountain are within walking distance such as tubing and ice skating, as well as the hiking and mountain biking, and the golf course in the warmer months.

What makes this condo unique

Short walking distance to slopes, tubing, ice skating, tennis, golf course and other amenities.

Newly renovated with new furnishings and appliances.

Quiet, peaceful getaway.

Close to many great places to eat, shop and visit.

Many out door shops for equipment rental/purchase within 1 mile .

Couldn't have asked for a better New Years weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Keith was a great host! We enjoyed his home, and the location. Especially with the snow, we were able to walk to and from the Sugar Mountain slopes with ease and never had to worry about driving or parking!

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights here just before Christmas. A short walk to the slopes, and very quite. Condo has everything you need for your stay. Owner is very quick to respond to questions. The bed and sofa bed were both comfortable. Having a washer/dryer in the condo was great! Thanks Keith.

Mountain Charm with At-home Feel

  • 5 of 5

First off, Keith was very fast in replying to my email about a last-minute stay in the mountains, as well as working very hard at getting things ready for our stay. When we arrived, it was a well-kept little condo with perfect space for a couple's weekend getaway. The back deck was peaceful with beautiful sunset views. The condo is not far from grocery, dining, local shopping, and tourist destinations. Perfect place for a short retreat!
