This unit was just as described and our host was great. You cannot get much closer to the slope. It is very convenient to stay here if you want to ski.
When Paula says she is at the base of the Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, she is not exaggerating in the least. To a avid skiier, it looked like heaven when my daughter and I arrived to Paula's BnB and the lights were shimmering off the slopes above. We were met with a warm greeting as soon as we arrived, and although our weekend was cut short due to a family emergency, we felt at home throughout our stay. While i would recommend this location anytime during the year, it truly is a ski/boarding paradise BnB.. Thanks Paula, we will certainly see you again soon..
Firstly, the location was so awesome! It was close to everything we wanted and there's even a novice hiking trail right across the road! It was a 3 mile drive to downtown Banner Elk, a minute drive to the base of Sugar Mountain (which has plenty of parking) and not far at all to Grandfather Mountain.
Paula was awesome, very friendly and very knowledgable about the area. She texted before to check on our arrival time estimate and emailed us too prior to our trip regards needing anything. She welcomed us when we arrived and is a lovely person to chat to! She was flexible on check-in and check-out times, made us feel very at home and extremly comfortable in the fact we could contact her if we needed anything at all.
The efficiency was wonderful and exactly as advertised. The bed is very comfortable (love those pillows!), the kitchen is well stocked with things you need to cook, full size stove/oven and Refridgerator and has a range of condiments. Coffee maker is small, but that helped us cut back on caffeine, so not really a bad thing! :D The bathroom was a decent size and the water pressure was wonderful with a plentiful supply of hot water. Outside there is a gas grill and some nice patio furniture. We spent quite some time there watching the birds, enjoyed watching the chipmunks chase each other around and relaxing in the peace and quiet. There is a golf tee just out of sight, but it really didn't disrupt us at all. The wifi is also very quick, even though we tried not to be too connected on our trip.
This was our first Airbnb trip and it's given us a huge amount of confidence in using this service again, most likely we'll be back to Paula's sometime too as it was such a wonderful overall experience at a great price!
And again, Location, Location, Location! Couldn't beat it!
It was really nice to meet Paula, and she is a gracious host and very nice. She offered great suggestions of places to go and see while visiting.
However, I too feel this ad is a little mis-leading, this is an efficiency room with a bathroom, it does not have a separate bedroom as the Airbnb ad suggests. Furthermore, I wouldn't suggest anymore than 2 people staying here as it would maybe be a little cramped, but that depends on the person. The place does have a very strong smell of cigarette smoke as well, which is off putting for non-smokers, and could also use a good overall cleaning. However, location wise it's a great place to stay as it is very close to the mountain and other fun places.
I would like to clarify a few things, I clearly state that the unit is the lower level, that it is an efficiency, basically a large hotel room with a queen size bed and a fold out sofa, full kitchen and bathroom. there is no way to choose this on the airbnb description. I did have a guest stay right before that must have smoked indoors, even though it clearly states no smoking indoors. I have a $1000 air purifier in the unit. also I have the unit professionally cleaned after every stay, I have a 3 person limit, and did not know that dan had 2 children under the age of 2 or I would not have excepted the stay.I highly recommend that everyone booking on Airbnb PLEASE read all the info, I in no way have tried to mislead anyone on the size of the (website hidden) clearly states in the description.
