Heading to Sugar Mountain

When packing for Sugar Mountain, it's best to be prepared for anything. Our climate can change so quickly that you'll have to see it to believe it!

If you're coming in the winter/ski season, you'll want to be sure your vehicle is up to the potential challenge. When we get lots of snow and or ice, the village of Sugar Mountain does require  4x4, AWD, snow chains or snow tires. Note that this isn't a combination of these things; any one should do the job. Roads are regularly treated and plowed but nature doesn't allow for perfection. If you're not sure about your car and its features, check into it.  A rear wheel drive vehicle is typically not what you want in the snow. While there is a shuttle to and from the ski resort during weekends and holidays, there is no public transportation here in Sugar Mountain. You will rely on your car during your entire trip, so be as prepared as possible.  

In summer months, bring a jacket or a hoodie just in case. During the day, it'll be hot and sunny. Once the sun goes down, nights get downright chilly sometimes. It's smart to bring some comfortable walking shoes too, in case you feel adventurous.  Most of our properties DO NOT have air conditioning.

Our little town has a Food Lion, a Lowes Foods, Lowe's Hardware, a NAPA, an Exxon and a Dollar General. We also have lots of great locally owned shops and stores for antiques, outdoor gear and clothing, snacks and gifts, and even an olive oil & basalmics store. The nearest Walmart is in Boone, about 20 minutes away.  

All our rental properties have kitchens. They are equipped with dishes, flatware, pots, pans, and cooking utensils. If you plan to cook, you'll want to bring basics like oil, foil, plastic wrap, spices, paper towels, etc. All units have standard coffee makers, so if you need that early morning boost, you'll want to bring some coffee and filters.
