About Mitzi P. Gilmer

My husband and I reside in Kingsport, TN and fell in love with the Sugar Mountain area during a visit. We purchased the Mountain Villa condo and have used it year round as our second home. We have completed a dream retirement home here in Banner Elk, NC and want to share our condo through the vrbo wesite. We will be nearby to oversee our rental.

Mitzi P. Gilmer purchased this condo in 1997

We needed a weekend in the mountains alone. Mitzi's mountain condo was just the place for us. Very clean, quiet, beautiful view and close to stores and restaurants. Mitzi is an excellent landlord who communicated regularly with helpful information and is extremely welcoming and kind. The condo has everything we needed. We highly recommend this very comfortable get away place!!!

grateful renter

Mrs Gilmer is undoubtably the best landlord we have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. We have been renting vrbo in NC for over ten years and she is the best.

Fanatstic value, amazing views, super clean

  • 5 of 5

The place is an amazing value. For less than the cost of most single hotel rooms you get 2 bed rooms, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen and a fantastic view to the northwest. It is very clean and well laid out. The main area is open so you get to soak in the views and light from the living area, dining area and kitchen. Even washing dishes is nice. It’s high up so you can see quite far. We stayed in and used the kitchen, there were some great looking restaurants but we never made to them. Why leave?

Mitzi was fantastic. We made very last minute accommodations and Mitzi was exceptionally accommodating in getting the place cleaned on late notice. She helped us through a number of logistical issues and gracious the whole time. Thanks Mitzi!

The location is great, close to Grandfather Mountain and Blue Ridge Parkway, the ski areas and countless hikes - what we came to do. There looks like there’s so much more but we didn’t have time to get to it all. But if the weather is bad you can just stay in and enjoy it from the cozy condo. We had a great time watching a storm roll in and out.

Another important thing to us is that the internet access was quite good as was cell coverage. Internet was better than in most hotels I’ve stayed at.

I would recommend highly. We will be back.

Spectacular Views, Warm and Cozy Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved out get away at this Condo. We were a group of 4 (2 couples). The home is well appointed with all necessary items for a weekend trip. The bedrooms were comfortable, we had plenty of linens and the heaters in each room allowed everyone to set the temperature just right. We enjoyed the "instant" fireplace after a long day on the slopes. We only prepared breakfast in the unit during our stay and the kitchen had everything we needed. We had a great Hawiian pizza from Bella's at the owner recomendation. The Food Lion Grogery store is very close by if needed. Access to the unit was easy and parking was close (a few steps away). The views of the slope at Beech Mountain were incredible both day and night. The shuttle bus worked out well for ease of access to and from the Beech Mountain Ski Lodge. The owner was very pleasant and responsive.

Great condo....not so great weather

  • 4 of 5

The condo at Skyleaf Villas was very nice....clean & comfortable with a great view of the ski slopes and surrounding mountains. Unfortunately, we had less than ideal weather for skiing & other winter activities. Of course, no one can control that....just bad luck! Mitzi & John were very helpful when we called re: the WiFi password....also, Mitzi checked in with us toward the end of the week to make sure everything was okay. I would like to return to the area again...perhaps in the summer. I would recommend "Stonewalls" for steak and "Bella's" for Italian food....both close by in Banner Elk.
