It's a nice place that has a great view of the mountains. Be aware that arriving at night during the winter can leave you stranded with no help, as any snowfall remains un-plowed until morning crews arrive. Also, lower level units can hear the floor creaking above whenever

Hello, The Highlands at Sugar does not have an onsite restaurant for meals. There are several restaurants in the area that are a short drive from the property, we recommend reviewing the Avery County Chamber of Commerce website for a list of all dining options. There are also grocery stores with-in driving distance of the property if you wanted to prepare meals in your units fully equipped kitchen. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else while preparing for your trip.

The Highlands at Sugar is located at the top of Sugar Mountain in Banner Elk, NC. The Village of Sugar Mountain recommends only traveling up the mountain with snow chains for 4 wheel drive if there is snow or a possibility of ice on the road. While the Village does an excellent job of plowing the road it can still be a bit difficult depending on the weather. Most days in February you will be okay, but depending on the weather, if there is any chance of snow or ice snow chains or 4-wheel drive will be required. Once you are at the resort the mountain views from your room are incredible, but be sure to use caution when coming in the winter.
