About the property

This unique condo has just been updated with a cozy Mid-Century Modern Theme.

Newly Renovated! Sensational 7th Floor Sunset and Ski Slope Views. 24 Hour Security. Gated Mountain Resort with Indoor Heated Pool, 2 Large Hot Tubs, and much more!

Enjoy Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter from the valley to the Top! The Silver Antler is a “mile-high condo in the sky,” located on the 7th floor of SugarTop Resort atop Sugar Mountain. You’ll be overlooking the ski slopes of Sugar Mountain Ski Resort with breathtaking, ever-changing, views of the valley and the highland regions of Beech Mountain, Banner Elk, and Grandfather Mountain.

Our fully furnished, two-bedroom, two full baths condo can be rented on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis using our direct-from-owner plan. Renting this unit in this historic one-of-a-kind complex could save you up to 40% below other local rental comparable rates in this area.

Relax in your own private scenic mountaintop retreat with gorgeous vistas from every window. Your large private balcony offers spectacular memory-making sunrises, sunsets, starlight, and cloud cover that will amaze you.

SugarTop Resort is the perfect retreat for snow-skiing in winter or escaping the heat of summer. In fact, due to the mile-high elevation, none of the SugarTop condos have air-conditioning units. Summer evenings can prove to be a bit chilly. During midday peak temps, simply open the windows or balcony door and enjoy the fresh mountain breezes. There are high-end ceiling fans in both bedrooms, and 2 nice portable fans for your comfort and convenience.

You will feel welcomed and valued the minute you step inside your recently updated clean and cozy condo. We’ve poured our hearts into creating a space that will inspire or enhance your moments in the sky.

While many may think the amazing views are the most incredible amenity, the special perks don't stop there. Sugar Top Resort offers a refreshing indoor heated swimming pool, 2 large hot tubs, an exercise room, steam room, dry sauna, and large shower/changing rooms with lockers. Other amenities include 24-hour gated security, front desk service, a quiet reading area, outdoor sunset deck and large barbecue and picnic area, and complimentary shuttle service to and from parking for all guests. No hassle with parking, driving, or delays; the free shuttle bus to Sugar Mountain ski resort is available during peak season holidays and weekends.

Everything in The Silver Antler is brand new or features “delightfully found” treasures for your comfort and enjoyment.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and private full bath. The second bedroom offers two twin beds (put them together for a king bed). Guest full bath. Both bathrooms have spa-pulse flex hose shower heads with 2 toiletry bins inside each vanity. The Living Room includes a sofa, a love seat, and an extra-large chair with ottoman. A deluxe queen size self-inflating air mattress that sleeps 2 can also be provided with linens and pillows upon request.

All bedding and linens are spa/hotel quality. Macy's sheet sets. Antimicrobial and hypoallergenic Bamboo Pillows. Night Therapy mattresses with Serta airflow cool gel memory foam toppers. All with proper antimicrobial covers. Even the air mattress is high quality with foam topper, quilted cover, comforter and linens (and is easily placed in the living room atop a brand new high-pile shag rug.)

You will find large flat screen TV's in the living room and both bedrooms. While Sugar Top Resort provides a good basic complimentary Wi-Fi service available in most locations of the building, it is a slow speed connection, and most video and streaming sites like Netflix and YouTube are actually blocked. Therefore, we have installed high speed 20.0 Mbps internet service with a router in the condo exclusively for the use of our guests. This is great for connecting multiple devices simultaneously, general surfing, checking email, social media, and is excellent for HD video streaming, and online video gaming with multiple game players at the same location.

There are some books and a collection of movies provided with a DVD connected to the living room TV. There is a nice collection of books downstairs in the lobby reading area that is available to all guests.

The dining room seats four and adjoins the family room where you can enjoy the real wood-burning Stone Fireplace year-round. There are two more sliding end tables that can be used as laptop tables and/or dining trays in the living room.

The condo is fully appointed, including a fully stocked kitchen with full-sized appliances, 1200-watt large microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, coffee maker, toaster, French press, tea kettle, tea infusers, blender, pots, pans, various dishes, drinkware, silverware, and an assortment of kitchen utensils. (My wife still cooks from scratch so whatever she needs will be there, including a rolling pin and a rotary Parmesan cheese grater.)

We've also provided a rolling bar cart that is stocked with vintage Vegas Style barware, complete with a vintage domino set for an inside night of challenging logic and cheerful fun.

Flameless candles, lighting dimmers, aromatherapy diffusers, Spa Envirascape electric wind chimes, and a collection of instrumental music CD’s are provided for relaxation and romantic ambiance.

There is a convenient laundry room in your unit with a full-sized washer and dryer, ironing board, and iron.

If anything is missing, please make us aware. We strive to accommodate all that's pleasingly feasible.

The resort lobby is also a warm welcoming area, furnished graciously to offer individual relaxation or group gatherings, with floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the lovely view. There is also a vending room with drinks and snacks. Lots of books and puzzles are available for your use. On this level is also where the indoor heated pool, 2 hot tubs, generously equipped workout room, dry sauna, and steam room are located.

Winter is here at Sugar Mountain Resort!! Another ski season and many winter festivities begin! We look forward to having our guests declaring their adventures in the area, and sharing their discoveries atop the beautiful Sugar Mountain and surrounding highlands. May you celebrate your every mile-high moment in our haven in the sky!!

About Elmer and Regina Purkey

We escaped the summer heat by staying at SugarTop Resort. And we fell in love with the people, the community, the peacefulness, the flora and fauna, the trails and waterfalls, the sunrises and sunsets, the sky mountains all around us; watching the walls of rain wash in across the miles, heat lightning beneath tangerine and lavender clouds, the sea of pink waves beneath our balcony with the rising sun. Our eyes and our souls yearned for more time on Sugar Mountain. We became owners within weeks. We're Tennesseans and North Carolinians and we couldn't be happier. We have a deep-rooted love for the entire Appalachian highland region. We've traveled all over, but we'll forever call these mountains "Home."

Elmer and Regina Purkey purchased this condo in 2016

Why Elmer and Regina Purkey chose Sugar Mountain

I can't say enough about the community and the views. We've immersed ourselves into many cultural/social settings. We're people loving people. But we're also nature lovers, hikers, adventurers, and we cherish those moments of "away from it all" peace. We've seen a lot of weather in our time and travels. A lot of sky. Many roads and terrains. But this particular area just offers so many wonderful things in one place. The region is also a haven for thrifters, arts and crafts, and unique finds, as well as fine dining. Sugar Mountain is-- moments away from all, as well as exhilarating to all the special moments to be had.

What makes this condo unique

This condo was right for us, and everything fell together with the purchase in a way that seemed "meant to be." The unit was much neglected and unloved. Not anymore. It just needed some hard labor updates and some warmth and love. The antler chandeliers were there, covered with cobwebs and black candle shades. I tossed the shades and gave the fixtures a bath in white and silver paint, and voila! It's now our Silver Antler Haven on High. The staff at SugarTop Resort are embracing and very protective of the peace and security of the site. We're so grateful of the way they go above and beyond. And the resort's amenities are superior in cleanliness and provision.

We hope you will feel peace and joy in The Silver Antler in a way that calls you back to us for many years to come.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Regina and Elmer,

Thank you for the use of your beautiful condo! The accommodations were perfect for our Gilmore Girls Revival Getaway! We enjoyed the hot tub and the proximity of eateries and other "necessary" runs. The views are beautiful. Everything was just perfect!!
