We stayed in 2509, a beautifully decorated 2 bedroom 2 bath condominium facing due west on the 5th floor. It was absolutely spotless. Comfy beds and linens, leather couches, new towels, new washer and dryer and refrigerator/freezer/ice maker in unit. We enjoyed the pool, the views and excellent service at the courtesy desk, the shuttle was spot on. We never... More

The weather is amazing! The views incredible! Can't wait to go back in October for fall colors! There's a pool, sauna, steam and exercise room; nearby hiking. Blue Ridge parkway close by. Lots of lakes! Both towns, Boone and Blowing Rock are close by with plenty of shopping, dining and other activities.

My Wife, daughter, and I stayed here for 4 nights during mid July. Our main two goals prior to booking a stay in North Carolina was that we wanted to escape the Florida heat, and we wanted a place with great views. The views from our balcony, and I'm certain from 90% of the balconies here, were absolutely breathtaking. This... More

This place is lovely! Has wonderful views, comfy condo-type rooms, and they are all totally equipped with whatever you may need! Gorgeous views and friendly folks! Its a good 5-10 minute drive up Sugar Mtn, however it's definitely worth it. My only negative is that the front desk staff close the pool early and are VERY strict regarding bathing suits... More

There are some negative reviews about Sugartop which I didn't find to be true. The staff were helpful and polite at all times. On a weeknight I was allowed to park right by the condos, but on Friday night we moved down to lots B or C. The shuttle arrives instantly. Just don't forget anything in your car or it... More

The views are amazing!! Woke up to drinking a nice hot cup of coffee and looking out the window to see skiers on sugar mountain. Long range, convient location, friendly front desk. Indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, exercise room. Parking was the only part that needs to be improved. Park down the hill and they shuttle you back and forth.... More

I think your enjoyment of Sugartop is dependent on the time of year you visit. We visited in late July, during the slow season, when we didn't have to worry about freezing our tushes off waiting for a shuttle bus. We found the staff and residents very friendly, and the wait for the shuttle bus was just a matter of... More
