Cozy cabin w/ beautiful woodwork, sunroom and a private deck!

When you envision a mountain vacation, this is it! This cozy cabin in the woods is cute as a button. Not too big, not to small, secluded feel, but not secluded at all! There's woodwork throughout, a stone front gas log fireplace, a cozy living/kitchen/dining space plus a sunroom with a wall of windows looking out into the woods. Enjoy the sun-soaked deck during the day and lounging around the fireplace at night! And while it feels secluded, the cabin is on Sugar Mountain, so it is very convenient to all activities, attractions and events.

What's nearby:
Sugar Mountain Resort is just steps away from this condo, where you'll find an outdoor skating rink, snow tubing, mountain bike tours and a full golf course. There are plenty of restaurants close by, including The Pedalin’ Pig and Elevations Restaurant. Sightseeing is plentiful in this area as well, such as the Foggy Mountain Gem Mine, Mile High Swinging Bridge and Grandfather State Park.

We didn't expect this cabin to be as nice as it actually was. It was perfect! It had a lot more amenities than was listed. The backroom that overlooked the woods was ideal if you just want to relax and unwind. The only issue was sunny days as the sun would make it somewhat unbearable for a bit. But other than that, I think I spent half my vacation in there.

Here is my 100% honest review of our stay at shelter rock:

To start with the negatives. Upon arrival as soon as we walked through the home we found spots with sticky liquid on the floor, which makes you wonder how much cleaning is actually being done especially during a pandemic. The upstairs shower has a mold issue and it was unsettling to look at while you shower. The downstairs toilet didn’t flush regularly either. Some things could definitely be updated. Those are my only complaints, now for the positive:
This home is in a great location! It’s very close to banner elk and beech mountain is only 18 minutes so you have the opportunity to explore both areas. We visited from Florida and the night we arrived it was snowing! The weather is very nice at the higher elevation. The home had everything you could need in the kitchen so we prepared a lot of meals there which is awesome to save some money and driving time. The heaters worked great, the beds were comfortable. The whole home was cozy. I saw review about lighting and we had no issues with any of that. It felt very secular despite but we could easily run down the road to pick up stuff from food lion or visit a local restaurant. The check in process was easy, the wifi worked great, tons of TV channels. Some good workout equipment too! I also want to mention there is a record player and CD player so if you have records bring them! Not sure if there were any on site we didn’t see them. I really felt like this was a home away from home! We spent every morning on the sun room and it saw some deer too. The downstairs deck was perfect for some quick snow ball fights. Overall this was a great stay with a good value. Of course there were a few little things like I had mentioned but they are easy fixes and I wouldn’t let them deter me from staying again. We really loved our time here and are Hoping to come back some day!

Loved the quiet setting and the very comfortable cabin.
The cabin had everything we needed and more.
Loved the recliners on the screen porch and the leather recliner in the great room.

This home is in a great location with many of the areas of interest in the highcountry nearby.

The cabin was nice and cozy, location was also nice, however there was a smell inside especially on the ground floor due to humidity, beside that everything else was great.

Adorable little cabin! It was cozy for a party of four and we mostly enjoyed the sunroom. I was disappointed to find that it was uncomfortably warm for our stay and there are no windows that open in the main living spaces to allow air flow. Also, if you have a low sight person traveling with you, there isn’t adequate lighting overall. It was very dark. Despite these items we enjoyed our visit .

Enjoyed our stay at Shelter Rock. The kids liked being surrounded by nature and observing the various wildlife that showed up. Home was convenient to the various places we explored.

My husband and I went to enjoy a weekend away after a year long deployment. It was so nice and cozy. The only thing was some of the lights were not working in the bathroom so it wasn’t bright enough to get ready. There were quiet a few of bugs in the house which I get a few here or there but we probably killed about 15. Other than that it was good lovely stay.

The house was great.
Jeremy C. Jan 2020
The place was very nice and clean on inside. Everything worked fine like it should. They left extra blankets and space heater in case weather was very cold. Fire place was very nice and had all things in kitchen for cooking. Only thing bad was stairs were frozen over and had to get ice melt for them. That was to be expected though.

Toaster did not work.
Living room, the chair has packing tape patch on the arm
Appears to be some floor replacement going on in the bathroom
