Welcome to Sugar Mountain Escape!

Sugar Mountain Escape is a charming two (2) bedroom mountain cottage located near the top of Sugar Mountain, only minutes away from the slopes of Sugar Mtn Ski Resort, and convenient to downtown Banner Elk, to Grandfather Mountain, to Seven Devils, to Ski Beech, to Valle Crucis, and both Boone and Blowing Rock.

*You can walk to the slopes, OR you can enjoy the convenience of 'virtual slope side' service via the Sugar Ski Resort Shuttle! The Sugar Mountain Ski Resort shuttle will pick you up at the property, drop you off at the slopes during the ski season, and will return you to Sugar Mountain Escape when you desire. Walk to the slopes and shuttle back, shuttle to the slopes and walk back, or take the shuttle both ways - it is up to you!

Sugar Mountain Escape has year-round, unobstructed mountain views that will not disappoint. The master suite, on the main level, features a King bed, an HD Smart TV, and glass doors leading to a quiet rear deck. The ensuite master bathroom features a large step-in shower.

At nearly 5000 feet in elevation, air conditioning is rarely needed. There are a few portable air conditioning units that adequately cool a large room or area. There is no whole-house air conditioning other than the three portable units. The owner is looking into a whole-house air conditioning system which might be installed in 2021, but plans for that are still tentative.

The main floor is an open-concept living room featuring soaring vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, a wood-burning fireplace, and HD Smart TV. The living room is adjacent to the kitchen, which offers granite countertops, stainless appliances, and has a center island with a live-edge wood slab top. The dining area accommodates up to eight (8) guests. The den, off the living room, offers a second area on the main level to relax and entertain. It features many windows allowing in natural light and the mountain view. The den has another HD Smart TV and ample comfy furniture. There is a sleeper sofa on the main level which can sleep two (2) more guests. There is a hallway half bathroom on the main level as well.

Upstairs is an open loft with a cozy table and chairs for games and puzzles. A twin day bed and twin trundle bed in the loft can accommodate two (2) guests. The full bathroom upstairs has a tub/shower combo. Past the open loft area is a queen bedroom with vaulted ceilings, an HDTV with a Smart BluRay player for watching DVDs, BluRay discs, and accessing all of your cable programming as well as Netflix and other Smart TV options.

There is a main-level front porch that offers a peaceful, shaded place to enjoy the outdoors. The back deck on the main level boasts mountain views and looks down to the mature woods rolling down and away from the back of the house. Here you will find a gas grill. A lower-level platform deck features the hot tub. Sugar Mountain Escape does allow pets, dogs only, two (2) maximum, with a strict 45-pound weight limit per dog. Standard pet fees will apply.

Sugar Mountain Escape is on Sugar Mountain near the top and is a long walk (less than 1/2 mile) or a short drive (less than 3 miles to the main parking area) to the slopes of Sugar Mountain Ski Resort. Nearby, less than ten (10) miles, are Beech Mountain Ski Resort and Hawksnest Snow Tubing & Zip Lines. Appalachian Ski Mountain is about nineteen (19) miles away. Grandfather Mountain is only nine (9) miles away, and Linville Gorge, Falls, and Caverns are all less than twenty (20) distant. Tweetsie Railroad is about nineteen (19) miles away, and Watauga Lake is approximately thirty (30) miles. Appalachian State University is about sixteen (16) miles away, and Lees McRae College is only six (6) miles away. Sugar Mountain Escape is between Boone and Banner Elk. Boone is about fourteen (14) miles away, and Banner Elk is five (5). Blowing Rock is less than sixteen (16) miles away, and Valle Crucis is only thirteen (13) miles. Although near the top of Sugar Mountain, Sugar Mountain Escape is centrally and conveniently located near all there is to do in the High Country!

*Currently, the house has numerous portable floor unit air conditioners to help on those abnormally hot days. This house is close to 5000 feet in elevation, so it rarely gets above 76 degrees, but we do have a few air conditioning units in the house. The owner is looking at upgrading to a whole-house air conditioning system in 2021, but that is still tentative

*The garage is kept locked for owner storage and is not accessible to guests.

*The driveway at Sugar Mountain Escape is a downhill, gravel driveway. It offers plenty of parking. However, if you do not have a 4WD or al All-Wheel-Drive vehicle, we encourage you to keep your vehicle parked at the top of the driveway, as it is challenging to get out from the bottom of the driveway with the gravel and its grade unless you have 4-wheel or all-wheel drive. If you have a rear-wheel drive vehicle, we suggest you back in and keep it toward the top of the driveway. If you have a front-wheel-drive vehicle, we recommend you pull in facing down but keep it toward the top of the driveway.


You may cancel within 24 hours of booking and receive a full refund. If you cancel more than 30 days before arrival, you will receive a refund of half the amount paid to date. Cancellations within 30 days before the arrival date do not receive a refund. If you purchase travel insurance and the reason for the cancellation is covered, you may recover the entire amount.
