This property is Very nice outside and pretty good inside. This two floor condo is at least 15 years old. But many things like the washer and dryer have been updated. Everything works, but the cabinets and bathrooms are dated. The condo was comfy and very clean. The appliances were all good, just dated

Poor choice of accommodations
Below our rental unit (4H) was the maintenance room with staff coming and going all hours in their 4-wheelers, and smoking in and/or outside the room. The smoke infiltrated into our room and was disgusting. We complained, but nothing changed. The "guests" above us lacked any control over their kid(s) who ran around bouncing off the furniture and walls making so much noise on our ceiling we couldn't enjoy our stay. It shook the ceiling and walls so much, one of the ceiling fan bulbs blew out. We called security re: "noise concerns", but they never answered. Needless to say we won't be back..

Great stay
Staff/manager was VERY accommodating. We traveled with 16 people (4rooms) the day before the snow storm (1-15-22) They grouped our rooms the best they could. The maintenance guys were very helpful/friendly. They kept areas plowed the best they could and helped several people shovel their vehicles and helped push them after being stuck. The rooms were well kept although dishes were not as clean as i would have liked the overall cleanliness was good. The location was great and very close to Sugar Mountain ski resort. we would definitely stay here again in the future.

Generally very good, but some drawbacks
We've stayed at Blue Ridge many times in the past, but things were a little different after the pandemic. Basically, they do a great job at providing the necessities such as utensils, bowls, glasses, dish washing liquid, TP, and appliances such as a coffeemaker (you supply your own coffee), dishwasher, blow dryer, and the like. The problems we had were that we couldn't choose which type of unit we were assigned and the design features of some units are problematic. Every time we came before we had stayed in a single floor unit. But this time we got "loft" units with the master bedroom on the second floor, even though in the reservation made months earlier we noted that some of us had mobility limitations. Somehow, the operators don't know who gets which units until 2 weeks before the arrival date, at which point you generally can't make changes due to there being few or no rooms available. But they don't even look at your requests until that 2 week point. The loft units were very nice, but they shared a common furnishing defect. They all had a high ceiling living rooms with a large window in the upper half of one wall. This let the sun in and there were NO CURTAINS or any means to prevent the sun from beaming directly down upon you depending on the time of day. If the sky was cloudy you were lucky, but otherwise you had to cope as best you could. This also heated the room quite a bit. Still, we rate the units very good overall.
