Winter This is a special time for the Blue Ridge Mountains. The region is well known
for its Skiing at Sugar, Beech, and Hawks Nest. The slopes are usually open from
Thanksgiving until April.
Holidays take on a special meaning here. A White Christmas
and a New Year to remember. It is a great time to try out the new ski equipment and
clothing you received for Christmas.
Skiing, Snow Boarding, Ice Skating, all are within minutes of SugarTop.
Spring As the snow begins to melt and the days start getting a little longer, the
mountains come to life. The flowers and plants begin a spectacular display of bright
colors. It is great time to visit and get away, if only for a few days.
The High Country
of North Carolina is not as commercialized as other mountain or beach destinations.
Anytime is fine, but Monday through Thursday is an excellent time to visit Grand
Father Mountain and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Less people
means more time to slow down and enjoy your stay. Sitting in traffic and waiting
in long lines at attractions is not my idea of a vacation.
Summer As our friends from Florida know, this area is the perfect place to be at this
time of year. Many Visitors from the deep south seek the North Carolina Mountains
as a retreat from the Heat.
What can you do here ? Enjoy some of the most beautiful Golf Courses in the world.
Boating on Price Lake, Fly Fishing or just taking in the sights and sounds on the
Blue Ridge Parkway. Also, in Blowing Rock are many unique shops and restaurants to
visit or you could simply enjoy an ice cream cone while sitting on a Park Bench.
How about just relaxing and enjoying the Cool Mountain Air.
Fall What needs to be said about this time of year?
The Fall colors are just amazing and the vistas from the Parkway are incredible.
But, the views from your condo are hard to be matched anywhere.
Sitting on the Large Private Covered Balcony enjoying the display of Fall colors
and taking in the Sunset, now we’re talking.
As throughout the entire year, Monday through Thursday is an excellent time to visit.
You will feel like you have the Blue Ridge Parkway to yourself.
