About the property

This charming ski condo at the base of Sugar Mountain is efficient yet elegant!

Location, charm and efficient best describes this condo. Located just outside of the Sugar Mountain ski resort (see slopes coming out of neighborhood) and 2 miles from the center of Banner Elk. This charming studio condo is completely modernized and updated inside with a decor that is both comfortable and trendy. The space is efficient yet elegant and is fully functional with a kitchen, dining area, full bath (with tub) and queen bed and a queen fold out memory foam mattress.

This condo is in the heart of the activity no matter if it is ski season or the summer season. Literally outside of the gates of sugar mountain and 5 miles from beech mountain resort, 2 miles from downtown Banner Elk, <1 mile from groceries store and restaurants, less than a 10 minute drive to Grand Father Mountain, 20 minutes from Boone. This condo is also easy access with four step access, convenient parking in front of the condo and easy driving access with no winding roads to navigate.

This property is charming and has been completely renovated with new appliances, water fixtures, light fixtures, new paint and new tile flooring. This property can easily accommodate a family of four or a pair of couples with both a queen bed and a queen sized sofa bed, a full bath and a small but fully functioning kitchen. Also, for those cold nights or if you just want to be romantic build a wood burning fire in the stone fire place.

Efficiency best describes this space with everything that you need to meet your needs. But when that efficiency is coupled with both class and charm and the central location and easy access this is the perfect place to stay on your next trip to the mountains. This property is 360 square feet in size and perfect for a couple or for a family with a small child. It is fully functional space that is the size of a large hotel room but with a kitchen (no dishwasher), full bath and comfortable living space. The property does not have a washer and dryer.

Extra cozy, comfortable, no detail left undone. Perfect for anyone looking for a mountain getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated and newly renovated. Very comfortable bed and couch. Extra pillows and warm blankets were a nice, cozy touch. We found games in the living room cabinet which was a fun surprise! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. The bathroom was newly finished. The shower had great water pressure and the water was nice and hot.. perfect after a long day of skiing! Everything was very clean.. we felt like we were the first people to ever step foot inside!

The location is incredibly convenient to Sugar Mountain.. and is essentially across the street from the entrance of the resort. A few restaurants, a coffee shop, as well as a grocery store are within a few minutes. The liquor store is nearby too.

Brian was very quick to communicate with us before and even during our stay. He provided detailed directions for check-in and check-out. Planning our stay was seamless and effortless. Thank you for everything!!

Cute little condo for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just the right size for a romantic getaway. The fireplace is a plus and the bedding is comfortable. Skiing and great restaurants are close by as well. The owner is very kind and responsive too.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very clean and updated, you can not beat the location if you want a ski getaway, literally across from Sugar and minutes to Beech.

Very comfortable layout, excellent kitchen and fantastic flat screen TV.

Would stay there again, a wonderful retreat.
