After a day full of winter activities, you want your mountain resort to have all the things to help you unwind and warm-up. Take some time to relax in our European hot tub, heated indoor pool, or our redwood sauna! Have the kids enjoy themselves in our recreation room or children’s play area. Enjoy a free shuttle to the Sugar Mountain Base Lodge during ski season, the surrounding Banner Elk, or even hop down to Boone for a day shopping! If you’re visiting during the summer months, check out the area’s fun-filled attractions, such as gem mining, horseback riding, ziplining, and all the local events and festivals! No matter what time of year you visit, The Highlands at Sugar will have something perfect for your vacation.
