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.

Cliff was very accommodating and helped us locate the house when we got there after dark. The chalet was perfect for a weekend getaway having everything we needed there! We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to going back in the future!

Location, location, location. This place had everything you could ask for! We arrived to a clean and cozy chalet after a long day of travel. Convenience is everything when you are in the mountains because things can sometimes be a bit of a drive. But this place was near EVERYTHING. Gas stations nearby, food lion 2 min down the road, local bars and restaurants within 5min, and you can literally see the slopes from the entrance to the community. Sugar mountain was 5 min up the road with skiing/snowboarding and tubing. The people in town couldn't be any nicer. Really awesome local bar open late that has pool tables and corn hole called bayou smokehouse and grille. The bars in the area are all pet friendly if your sitting outside. The hot tub on the property was so awesome after a long day of skiing. Only advice is if you are staying when it's warmer than 40 out id turn on the fans and crack the windows at night for some fresh cool air! No AC in the house which is fine if it's cool out, but when there's a heat wave it can get toasty. We had everything we needed never had to travel more than 5 min for anything. Also just to switch up the scenery we took a drive to Boone, which was only 25 min away and they had bowling and and nice brewery we visited called Appalachian mountain brewery. Super awesome vibes. To top it all off, Clif the owner was really helpful and accommodating. GO STAY HERE!

Hot tub heaven!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Every bit as wonderful as advertised and previously reviewed! Exceptionally clean and welcoming. The owner replied quickly to all my questions. I would most certainly come back again and recommend this lovely chalet to my friends and family. And after crashing down Sugar Mountain all day the hot tub was a Godsend!!!!!
