About Shara Livingston

Bruce and Bonnie Jackson are the owners of this property. They live in Wilmington, NC. We purchased this property because it had been completely renovated and our grand children could walk to the ski slope without having to walk on the main street. Also after having purchased this property we realized we could watch the grandchildren ice skate from out living room window. This is such a bonus. We hope you will enjoy this place as much as we have.

Shara Livingston purchased this condo in 2007

Why Shara Livingston chose Banner Elk

We chose this property because of it's close proximity to multiple activities. We love the Sugar Mountain community and you are so close to everything. The mountains are dear to our heart and we have always loved to spend time there. Our children and grandchildren have grown up knowing this as part of their home. I hope you will feel the same way once you have visited us.

What makes this condo unique

Skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snow tubing, tennis, golf, shopping, hiking, Kayaking, rafting, and fishing.

Perfect spot for a family ski getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and we loved it (again!). It’s an easy, short walk down the stairs and across the path to get to sugar maintain ski. We even made it home after an evening of night skiing without flashlights. The home is very well maintained, plenty of space for a family of four. Our two middle school boys took over the upstairs with one all the way up in the third story loft while we kept to the main floor. The home was also very well equipped and stocked. We cooked several meals and it was great having the accessories and amenities and especially the cleaning supplies to tidy up afterwards. Next time we go back to Sugar Mountain, this home is the first one on my list.

Inviting and cozy condo on Sugar Mountain

  • 5 of 5

Lovely large condo tucked onto Sugar Mountain. Conveniently located to multiple activities in Banner Elk. I would recommend this condo for a large family or a couple visiting the area. Have had multiple visits that were peaceful and pleasing.

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit to this property for a family of 10 - 2 grandparents, 2 sets of parents, and 4 grandkids ... we started our trip when kids were 4, 6, 6, 9 and now they are 7, 9,9,12 and they love being at your place. We ice skate, tube, and they are fearless on the ski slopes! Wish I could send you pictures of them doing all of this but the weather was not accommodating this time. It was very warm but they did get to ice skate the first night and ski all day the second day and night ski but not the third day due to mud and temps. Had a great time playing Yamslam (yatzee) and cards at night. Your home suits our family!
