The place was immaculate! Every need was anticipated. We were there to relax and relax we did! I definitely would return!
Tom W. Aug 2021
Few minor things we tried to notify about without success: 1) freezer wouldn’t make ice (ice was selected “on” and tray was in correct facing position) 2) lights under microwave (over stove) did not work and 3) many of the under cabinet lights also did not work. Again, nothing big. Outside of that, it was a beautiful home and we would stay again
Manager response:
We appreciate your review, Tom. Maintenance will be taking care of the ice maker, microwave light, and cabinet lights. Thank you for reaching out, and we hope to see you again!

Great views
John G. Apr 2021
This is our second visit in the last year. Great vantage point to enjoy the views. The sunrises from the tub and sunsets from this location will have you back a 2nd time for sure.

Support from Vacasa was superb with same day service to fix the fireplace. Looking forward to a 3rd visit.

Loved this place! Wish we would have booked longer

Beautiful and cozy mountain condo with a gorgeous view! Summit of Sugar Mountain right outside front door. Walked home from skiing everyday by taking lift to the top then a short walk off slopes to condo.
Akilah S. Mar 2021
We stayed at 36-C for a few days in early March. It was wonderful. The condo was very cozy for our family of 4. The kitchen was well appointed and the beds were comfortable.
Lauren S. Mar 2021
This condo is very well maintained and clean. Comfortable bed, and we enjoyed the hot tub with the amazing view! It was also super close to the ski slopes-very convenient! Highly recommend!
Brandon S. Feb 2021
The house was very well kept with a beautiful view in a prime location. I would happily stay here again.

Comfortable space, great access to lifts!

We stayed here 2 years ago. Great place and location. Walk to the top of the mountain. A couple of gripes. There was a leak when it rained (management already knew about it). My wife said it was completely cleaned. Dirty coffee filter in coffee maker and old soap in the shower when we arrived. Couldn’t get the fireplace to work. Management called to say they were sending someone up but he never showed. The dryer works but it took forever to get clothes dry. Probably needs to be replaced.
Manager response:
Hi, Johnny! We appreciate your feedback and are so sorry you had any negative aspect to your experience. The leak you are referring to is part of being on top of a mountain - there is a beautiful view, but also horizontal rain. We are looking for a vendor that can permanently remedy the situation but haven't had luck yet. The fireplace is now functional, and we are working on the dryer. Thank you!
Stacy F. Dec 2020
We loved the condo decor, the proximity to snow tubing and ice skating and the balcony view.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon.q

I have been renting this condo for 7 years now. Origianlly it was managed by Dereka's Sugar Mountain but now Vacasa has taken over the rental. I am very happy to report that since Vacasa has taken over, the carpet has been replaced with wood laminate floors, and the fireplace (which has worked intermittently over the years) is in perfect working order. Everything else was as it ever was. One of the seats jets still does not work in the hot tub - but I'm not sure they can fix that since I report it in my feedback every time. The lid to the hot tub is the older kind and is very heavy and needs replacing. I do not know if the leaking sliding glass doors have been repaired yet as it was BEAUTIFUL fall weather while we were there this time. One change that took me by surprise was the new conservative approach to towels, laundry soap, and dishwashing soap. If you plan to do more than 2 loads of laundry and 3 loads of dishes I recommend bringing your own supplies. While there used to be 4 large towels per bathroom, now there are only two, so you might want to bring a few extra towels for the hot tub. The location where you are supposed to take your trash has changed as well. Make sure to pay attention to the signs on the kitchen counter carefully as they are not noted in Vacasa's check out directions. Other than the changes we didn't expect (fewer towels and laundry/dish soap), we loved staying here as usual. It is our favorite mini-break escape spot for the family. Stunning views and the only unit in the Reserve with a hot tub on the deck. We will be back again soon! It's a perfect spot for families to get away for a bit.
Manager response:
Hi, Julie! We are so glad you stayed with us and shared your review. Horizontal rainfall is one of the downfalls at this prime location at the top of the mountain; this rain will often go through the screen doors, so we will provide more towels for this. The hot tub jets will be addressed. Thank you!

We booked this unit for a mini-vacay to visit Grandfather Mountain and just chill out for a few days. We were surprised upon arrival as the unit seemed even more spacious than the pics, especially the balcony. The view is amazing and the unit felt private and lux, but also comfy.

Since we got off season pricing on the unit, we were pretty laid back about the issues we encountered so it was no big deal, but if you are a stickler about certain things you might want to know the following:

--We felt the unit was quite clean upon arrival, the only thing we noticed were little hand prints low down on the sliding glass door, which let us know a family with small children probably stayed there before us. This prompted us to just go ahead and wipe down oft used areas with lysol wipes.

--If it is very windy the pilot light on the gas fireplace goes out. This happened to us as there was a strong thunderstorm one of the days we stayed. There are instructions on how to restart the pilot light on the fireplace and once the wind died down we were easily able to do it. Unlike an earlier review mentions, we did NOT experience the sliding doors shaking or feeling any drafts coming from them, we were warm and cozy inside.

++Maintenance is very responsive if issues arise: We had an unexpected problem of water leaking from the fridge but once we called the number listed in the kitchen for help, maintenance arrived in a timely manner, which was really appreciated. The maintenance people were friendly and very helpful with everything in the unit.
++The kitchen is nicely stocked with plates, utensils, coffee maker, and all you need to cook if you just want to stay high up on the mountain and not leave for a bit. I believe an earlier review mentioned the lack of wine openers? We found three in one of the drawers, so no problems there ;)

++The hot tub was fabulous as was the master shower and tub (which also has a great view). Bed was comfy, furniture is in great condition, floors are beautiful, wifi worked great, and there are extra blankets are in the closets. We really enjoyed our time staying in the unit and would definitely do so again!

Thank you for a lovely mini-vacay!

We stayed for a summer. hiking vacation. The property was clean and comfortable. We greatly valued the view from the balcony, where we recovered each night from the day's hikes. Hiking trails are very accessible - a full week of activity, and nothing more than a 30 minute drive from the front door.
Nicole B. Aug 2020
We spent our 1st Anniversary in this beautiful unit. Everything was perfect. Easy contactless check in / out. The condo had everything we needed and the views are unreal. We Also loved the location which was convienant to everything. Awesome experience, and we will definitely be back!
LEIGH R. Aug 2020
A super clean condo with amazing views. Great little touches like the photo with all the peaks you can see from the balcony. My only complaint was I don’t live there full time! Ha ha. This place was perfect.
Charles H. Mar 2020
Hottub, view, clean! Love it.....

Martin S. Mar 2020
This condo was exceptionally furnished and in a great location. The top of Sugar mountain, a very short walk in ski boots to the where the chair lift drops you off at the summit. I had a four wheel drive vehicle, while this was necessary Friday night it was not necessary by Saturday. I guess the condo association pays for a snow plow to clear the road. Would highly recommend this condo, again nicely furnished, great location with amazing views.
Nate B. Feb 2020
Perfect for a family of four. Located at the top of Sugar Mountain. You could rent skis in town, walk to the summit trail and ski down to get your left ticket. The condo is in great shape. Cozy, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.
Jennifer H. Jan 2020
This condo had great views, very clean and was super comfy!
Marca B. Jan 2020
Location and view are amazing. Condo looks great in person but it needs some repairs. The fireplace doesn’t work. That is an ongoing issue that they failed to mention until we got there. The sliding glass door in the bedrooms shakes and rattles with any kind of wind, and that high up there is always wind. It’s so loud you can’t sleep at night. The sliding glass door in the living room leaks so if it rains the floor floods. We rented through Vacasa and they were very helpful and offered to let us change condos. This condo could be amazing. Just needs some repairs!
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed the lovely view! Thank you for your valuable feedback. The manager has addressed your concerns and it is ready for future guests. We hope you will stay again soon!

Lucas lux T. Nov 2019
We loved everything and the view was amazing! Best time of our lives and with it being so cold the private hot tub made it better.
Linda I. Nov 2019
