    Adults-only condos with indoor pool and fitness center
    Comfort, beauty, amenities, security, attractions, activities - this is what we invite you to experience at Sugar Top - gated resort condominium offering best skiing experience in the Carolinas! 2 bedroom condo is located on the 9th floor with a beautiful balcony overlooking slopes of Sugar Mountain providing breathtaking sunset experience! Freshly remodeled and ready to make your next vacation a memorable one! Available from 2 nights to a month. EARLY CHECK-IN AND LATE CHECK-OUT AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST! You'll LOVE all the amenities Sugartop provides, including the comfortable lobby with sitting areas and fireplace. Our indoor pool and spa area overlooks the slopes of Sugar Mountain Ski Resort and offers gorgeous panoramic views! Some amenities that WE offer our guests include widescreen "Smart TVs" in each room, free high-speed Internet Wi-Fi, free NetFlix, tasteful decor with cozy "mountain lodge" theme, modern fully-equipped kitchen, personal touches throughout, top-quality luxury bedding and bath products, exceptional long-range views that will take your breath away, and so much more! Your COMPLETE enjoyment is our goal: As we travel a lot ourselves both on business and for leisure, we fully understand how a mediocre, dated, or dirty accommodation can put a damper on your vacation. We would not settle for that, which is why we strive to stand out from the crowd, and work so hard to make your stay special. Seeing is believing, so please take the time to review property details in order to book with complete confidence. ***Parking Notes: Due to the mountaintop resort nature of Sugartop Resort Condos, they had to build it with multiple parking lots in addition to the main one that loops around the building. As such, the upper level parking is prioritized for the owners, with guest parking based on availability. During busier times, guests may be directed to one of the lower lots to park. In this case, Sugartop has a shuttle service to quickly whisk you back and forth and give you curb service. Staff are always prompt, courteous and available 24/7. (Busy times can be some weekends, holidays, and summer months when seasonal residents arrive.) When this occurs, guests can always load and unload at the main entrance, and call ahead to the desk to have a shuttle waiting for their departure. Condo is perfect for singles, couple, or families with children over 16! Number of guests enforced and verified! THINGS TO DO IN THE AREA: Looking for things to do on your next vacation? Look no further than the High Country of Western NC! Whatever your age, status or desires, you should find an array of pleasing activities to choose from - all year long! And as our special guests, you'll be comfortably and conveniently located right in the middle of it all... For example, this is hiking and biking "paradise" and an awesome region to just get out and cruise some of our scenic back roads, and the world-renown Blue Ridge Parkway. Enjoy golf? You'll love the beauty and proximity of the local Sugar Mountain Golf Club. The more adventuresome can try their hand at zip-lining, horseback riding, canoeing, and white water rafting. There's also a wide variety of shops and dining establishments to explore... You'll also find numerous attractions such as Grandfather Mountain, the original Mast General Store, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Tweetsie Railroad, Mystery Hill, Blowing Rock, and many more. And remember to pack a lunch if you'd like to stop by one of our pretty parks or picnic areas along the way... Many mountain towns tend to slow down in the wintertime - but not us! We are the best snow skiing destination in the south, with a variety of venues and slopes to challenge you. You'll find everything from skiing, to snowboarding, to tubing, to snow-shoeing. And there's no shortage of instructors, equipment rentals, events and activities. And as a bonus for OUR guests, you'll be able to look right down on Sugar Mountain Ski Resort and watch all of the activity right from your balcony or window. (They even offer a "courtesy coach" to our building.) You'll also find several of our attractions to be open year-round. OUR BEAUTIFUL SUGARTOP RESORT CONDOMINIUMS BUILDING: Care to just relax and stay close? That's easy to do here at Sugartop! Apart from our cozy condo, you may wish to explore some of the amenities our awesome building has to offer its guests, such as: ~ Large, indoor, heated swimming pool with awesome mountain views ~ Sauna ~ Steam room ~ Hot tubs ~ Locker rooms ~ Well-equipped exercise room with TV ~ Nostalgic library in the Citadel Tower ~ Meeting areas and comfortable lobby sitting areas ~ Cozy lobby fireplace ~ Refreshment/vending room ~ Outdoor picnic tables and grills ~ Observation deck ~ And VIEWS at every turn... OUR BEAUTIFUL CONDO UNIT: Speaking of views, how about grabbing your favorite refreshment and sitting out on your own private balcony to enjoy some of the most beautiful sunsets this side of Heaven? As you browse through the photos on our VRBO listing page, you'll come across a floor plan of our condo, so you can get a good idea of its layout. It's a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, split-plan with generous living and dining areas and a well-equipped kitchen. The kitchen has been completely remodeled in recent years and boasts upgraded, name-brand appliances with wood cabinets and beautiful countertops. It also has brand new cookware, utensils and dishes to accommodate any need. Care to stay in and do some mile-high cooking one evening? Got you covered! All you need are the groceries, and there are two very nice grocery stores within a 10-minute drive in either direction. Luxury for Less: In some market areas you could expect to pay upwards of $200-400 a night for such accommodations! KITCHEN CONVENIENCE: Along with the abundance of utensils and cookware, you'll also enjoy: ~ a large, side-by-side refrigerator ~ oven unit with glass-top electric stove ~ built-in, over-the-range microwave oven ~ top-of-the-line, whisper-quiet, automatic dishwasher ~ garbage disposal ~ 4-slice toaster ~ blender ~ deluxe coffee maker with "full pot" or "single cup" options ~ complimentary coffee K-cups and tea bags LAUNDRY: Either you are staying for a day, a week or more, for your convenience unit is equipped with a private washer and dryer. Ours is a Maytag stacked unit and is located in the hall closet. We also supply a couple of complementary single-load, all natural laundry detergent packets. For backup, you're also just a few steps away from the 9th floor laundry facilities. The trash chute is also just a few steps away, right next to the laundry room. BEDS, BATHS, AND WAY BEYOND: Your comfort is our goal, so we've gone the extra mile to help you get a good night's sleep. Our master suite boasts a huge, king-sized bed that's topped with luxurious organic linens and a variety of hypoallergenic, down-alternative pillows in your choice of "soft, medium or firm" comfort. Our guest bedroom offers the same bedding, but in twin sizes. For your viewing pleasure, a 40-inch "Smart TV" is provided in the master suite and a 32-inch "Smart TV" is provided in the guest suite. Both bedrooms have closets, dressers, nightstands and large windows that allow you to take in those wonderful mountain views! And on the 9th floor, you won't need to draw the blinds for "privacy". Not an issue here (perhaps just for sleeping in)! The bathrooms are convenient to each bedroom and have everything you need to help freshen up or wind down. We provide an initial personal supply of organic soaps, shampoos and lotions, as well as plush towels that are sure to enhance your bath experience. When ready to hit the pool, hot tub, sauna, or steam room, you'll find a supply of over-sized Spa towels in the laundry closet. MISC: For your convenience, you'll find an iron and ironing board in the guest bedroom closet. A hair dryer can be found in the master bath lavatory cabinet. *Videos come by way of FREE NETFLIX which gives you an endless supply of movies, documentaries and programs to watch commercial-free (instructions in the unit). 50 music channels are also included. This provides more choices and convenience for our guests. For those occasional warm summer days we provide ceiling fans in each room. (Air conditioning systems are generally unnecessary, and a rare find in our higher, cooler elevations.) We appreciate safety standarts and comfort of our every guest so that we have a team of professional housekeepers to perform a thorough cleaning and restock items after every stay. *Great Rates: Nightly rates are for DOUBLE occupancy. Each additional guest is $10.00 per night. We offer discounts for over 7 day stays. NOTE: If you consider a 30+ day stay, please conctact us prior to making a reservation as it is a subject to approval. We are more than welcome to accept longer terms during the low season. THE CITADEL: Just so you are aware, our condo is in the slightly newer Citadel Tower wing. This places it close to the public laundry facilities and trash chute (very convenient) and in a quieter environment. When you exit the main elevator on the 9th floor, you'll turn right and walk to the end of the corridor, then continue on through the door marked "Citadel". Make lasting memories! Come visit the heart of the High Country and take advantage of endless opportunities for fun, entertainment, and just, pure relaxation during fall, winter, spring or summer - Sugar Top always has things to offer for every kind of traveler!

          Pleasant retreat

          Overall a great place to stay. Only a few minor things yet nothing serious. The scenic view is worth the extra travel time to anywhere.

          5/5 Excellent

            Beary Attentive to Details

            This condo is gorgeous, not just the views (which are amazing). The owners have themed the condo with bears and big, comfortable furniture. The extra details made this place especially comfortable. From ceiling fans, plenty of hooks, power strips, tv trays, and even a set of binoculars to take in the amazing views, this unit had all the bells and whistles that made it a beary special place to stay. We are booking it again next year.

            5/5 Excellent
