About Clif Ridenhour

My wife and I are Realtors in the Charlotte area. We love the mountains and getting away. Often we leave Charlotte and head to the mountains. We are always amazed at the sights and drop of temperature in a two and a half hour drive.

Clif Ridenhour purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Clif Ridenhour chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We chose this area for snow skiing and the beautiful sites that the High Country offers. There are several ski resorts close by and the largest one in NC is across the street 'Sugar Mountain'. Grand Father Mountain is less than a 10 minute drive and it has unbelievable views. Grand Father Mountain also has a mile high swinging bridge and wildlife habitats to include bears, deer, and all kinds of other animals.

What makes this chalet unique

Location, Location, Location it is here. Across the street from Sugar Mountain. 5 Minute drive to downtown Banner Elk. 10 Minute drive to Grand Father Mountain and several other hiking trails and water falls in the nearby area.

My favorite restaurant in Banner Elk is Sorrento's which is downtown. After a wonderful meal, I love the hot tub on a cold night. Listening to the sound of the blowing of snow on Sugar Mountain and soaking in the hot tub is very relaxing.

Great little place to stay and explore the High Country

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I searched for a long time for a well-rated VRBO property in this area, within our price range. This place fit our specs and we had a great vacation. There was initially a miscommunication with the cleaning service and unfortunately the place was not turned when we got there, but the owner was extremely apologetic, came by to make sure we were okay, and gave us a discount for our inconvenience. It speaks measures when an owner is willing to compensate to make sure you are satisfied. And we were. The location is fabulous, and we enjoyed hikes almost every day. We had planned to enjoy one of the three nearby slopes, or go tubing, but the weather ended up being more amenable to hiking. The chalet was very quiet, the bed was very comfy, and the hot tub was serene and clean and relaxing. The kitchen is a little tight, but we managed to cook all our meals in as we usually do, without a problem. We would definitely stay again without hesitation! Thanks, Clif!

It was a nice experience overall. The Tempur Pedic like bed was very comfortable after a long a day snowboarding as well as the hot tub. Everything was exactly as stated and I will be back ! Perfect place for a romantic get away.
