SugarTop Resort is an historical "one-of-a-kind" mountain top resort. 24-hour Security, Gated- mountain top community, with indoor heated pool, 2 large hot tubs, and much more!

Atlas Trace is a mile-high condo in the sky, located on the 10th floor of SugarTop Resort atop Sugar Mountain. You’ll be overlooking breathtaking, ever-changing, views of the valley and the highland regions of Grandfather Mountain and Linville Ridge.

Relax in your own private scenic mountaintop retreat with gorgeous vistas from every window. A large private balcony offers spectacular memory-making sunrises, sunsets, starlight, and cloud cover that will amaze you.

SugarTop Resort is the perfect retreat for snow-skiing in winter or escaping the heat of summer. In fact, due to the mile-high elevation, SugarTop is without AC. Summer evenings can prove to be a bit chilly. During midday peak temps, simply open the windows or balcony door and enjoy the fresh mountain breezes. There are high-end ceiling fans in both bedrooms, and 3 nice portable fans for your comfort and convenience.

You will feel welcomed and valued the moment you step inside our recently updated, clean and cozy condo. This travel-themed unit was created as a space to enhance your stay on the mountain.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous views!
All check in process and directions were laid out perfectly, no hiccups and staff were wonderful. The views from the 10th floor were incredible. Also the condo was much bigger than expected, perfect for a family. We ate in most of the time since the kitchen was stocked with everything you would need, but the local restaurants were great as well. We even got to see snow and take a hike in it. Would reccomend and looking forward to coming again soon. Thank you!

4/5 Good

Nice condominium with an awesome view
The actual unit was exactly as outlined in the listing and the pictures. It was well-stocked with kitchenwares and other items that were in great working order and clean. The view was outstanding and worth the stay alone! The only negative was the check-in process. Signage for the check in process and parking were not easily visible nor specific. The communication on timing of shuttle pick ups, etc. was not very good and the staff working the check in process were somewhat unprofessional and not overly friendly. This resulted in quite a few frustrated guests. This was no fault of the property owners though!

Condo was well furnished and exactly as pictured. Quick ride to skiing and tubing at Sugar Mountain. We really enjoyed the warm pool and hot tubs. It was great to warm up and relax after a day on the slopes.
