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 High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

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 Location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our family mini vacation. Sugar Retreat was clean, comfortable, and lots of room for our family. Short drive to Boone, Banner Elk and Blowing Rock!

Cozy Ski Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a brief, but very pleasant, stay at Hemlock Nob. The home was very clean on arrival and was exactly as described. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of pots, pans, dishware and silverware. The beds were comfortable and we slept 10 with some oversized couches in the living room. The house has a little back porch with a nice view of a brook and the ski slope, which is a short walk or drive away. So you know, it didn't seem like there was internet available, so enjoy the opportunity to disconnect!

Cozy Mountain Home very close to slopes

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and cozy home. Rooms were a good size, comfortable beds, well stocked (extra toilet paper, paper towels, condiments in the fridge...) 3 queen beds and an attic room with 2 twin beds makes for a fun hide away for younger kids. Nice that we did not have to go to a rental office to have access the home.. owner gives lock box info for access and extra keys are inside. Living room and kitchen are together so layout lends itself to conversation. Location was great, could either walk to slopes or a minutes drive if you want to park. Tubing is right around the corner as is ice skating rink. We had a really nice stay and would stay there again.

Winter Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely wonderful home! We wanted to take our young children on a vacation so they could have a "white" Christmas. Being from South Georgia it does not happen often. We were very lucky to have caught the first cold. We did tubing and ice skating, and dining. We wanted to take a trip so the kids could spend a vacation with grandparents too so we all went. Wonderful memories made. So spacious and comfy. Great location too. The only down fall is the fact my little girl has a huge heart and feels stuffed animals are very real. She felt terrible leaving the cute black lab stuffed animal that is showed on site. Cried all the way home (it was a long ride). She was so hopeful she left a note to the owner in the journal at the home. Next time we will hide stuffed animals :( Grateful to say EVERYTHING else was AMAZING. Definitely would recommend the home. Thanks to all who let us enjoy your home.

Hemlock Knob K47

We had such a great time. Everything was clean and it was very close to the slopes. I have stayed in this exact unit 2 times and had a blast both times.
