There are two aspects to consider - this particular condo, and Sugar Top itself.
This condo is near perfect. It is renovated beautifully. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen well stocked. The Christmas decorations were a really lovely touch (especially with the dusting of snow with which we were gifted!) The owner was responsive and easy to deal with. We have stayed in several units and this was by far the best of them all.
As for Sugar Top, it is a short ways out of town (hence the slight drop in prices compared to Blowing Rock for example.) But still convenient to all that you could want to do in the mountains. The views are absolutely amazing - I don't think you could find better. The lobby is cozy, but what we return for every year is the swimming pool, hot tub and other amenities. They are a fun way complement to Christmas tree shopping and the Mast general store on Thanksgiving weekend that the kids always enjoy. The staff is friendly and helpful. The shuttle (yes - much debated amongst reviewers) is simple and easy and to be honest - better than parking at the back end of the upper lot like we did our first year here!
I don't think you can go wrong at Sugar Top and I don't think you could do better than this unit. We had a great weekend!
We really enjoyed staying at this location. The decor has been updated and everything is brand new. The 5th floor view overlooks Sugar Mountain Ski Resort. The wood burning fireplace worked perfectly and added a cozy ambiance. TV in living room was a great size for the room. The TV in the bedroom only worked with the DVD player, which there was also a large selection to choose from. There were several towels per person for use for the shower and the pool. Only thing I’d recommend is to bring soap and shampoo/conditioner for shower as this was not provided.
