Pleasantly Surprised!

To be honest, we were not expecting much. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. We had a 1 bedroom. While it wasn't all that big, it was nicely appointed and very clean. We will definitely stay there again!

Sugar Mtn Ski Vacation

Great location. Stayed in a two bedroom and there was lots of space for us and our gear. The staff was great. Only downside was the spotty Wi-Fi. Note- the washer and dryer are shared with a second unit.

Perfect

Pros: Location and large amount of space compared to a hotel.
Cons: A little dated but still great. No elevator.
Location: Close drive to everything
We were Floridians looking for snow. Perfect location. Five minutes to Sugar Mountain and 20 minutes to Beech Mountain and Hawksnest Snowtubing. Grocery store, liquor store, restaurants 5 min drive. Very Roomy for family of 5 with all our snow gear. It had 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms with kitchen. Only drawback, we were on 3rd floor with no elevator so we had to carry luggage up 3 flights of stairs. Kids loved the in room fireplace ( had a carbon monoxide detector) ,indoor heated pool, hot tub and sauna. We got 8 inches of snow during our stay. Kids enjoyed playing in it and it looked beautiful from the windows and back balcony. We would definitely stay again.

Best Vacation Ever

Family stayed in a two bedrm, two bath unit with a view of the woods. So peaceful. Unit was very roomy and comfortable and in excellent condition. This was our third year staying at this resort and we will be going again next year and staying longer. The area is beautiful and close to lots of hiking trails and waterfalls. There was lots of fun things for our 11 yr old at the resort. We are always sad to leave.
