JUST 3 MILES TO THE SLOPES AND TRAILS from this luxury Sugar Mountain home with stunning views across the mountains, easily enjoyed from the deck or through the large windows throughout the home. The epitome of a true escape, with pinball machine, video arcade, roast s’mores and hotdogs at the fire pit on a clear night, soak in the hot tub while gazing at the view, or play a game of pool in the great room while the chef prepares a gourmet dinner. Best of all, it is a very short drive to the slopes of Sugar Mountain, and is just minutes from their golf course and tennis courts.
Main level: Master with king and private bath with walk in tiled shower and soaking tub; second bedroom with queen and private bath with walk in tiled shower
Lower level: Third bedroom with king, third full bath, fourth bedroom with twin and double (bunk)

When considering your next Sugar Mountain rental and you find Heart Rock Lodge, ask yourself the following question: Which do you want most- a custom built luxury home with stunning long range views across the mountains, incredible furnishings, gourmet kitchen, fine lines and the lap of luxury; OR a fun-filled house with pool table, pinball machine, sixty game video arcade and lots more to keep your children and teens entertained so you can enjoy your vacation? If you choose both, then Heart Rock Lodge is the perfect house for you - the perfect family vacation rental!
This exquisite house with the best of everything will keep you marveling as you enjoy the custom touches throughout, such as 8-inch solid locust staircase beams, stacked stone fireplace and kitchen island, marble countertops, cypress ceilings, Travertine marble in all bathrooms, stainless steel appliances and an all glass front looking out on miles and miles of long range mountain views. In fact, almost every room in Heart Rock Lodge offers a stunning view - on a clear day, you can even spy the Swinging Bridge atop Grandfather Mountain!
The four bedrooms, which offer two kings, one queen, and a log bunk bed with full and twin, this home will comfortably sleep up to nine. There is a master on the main level with walk-in shower and separate soaking tub in a beautiful Travertine tiled spacious bath. A second bedroom with queen bed and private bath with walk in shower also has a view of the mountains, while the lower level has the other two spacious bedrooms. First, a second master with king and view from the private doors out onto the lower deck; third full bath with marble countertops and flooring and combination tub with shower; and the kid’s bedroom, which sleeps up to three with the unique log bunk and also a great view.
The downstairs family room has a large screen TV, private bar, pinball machine, table-style video arcade with sixty games, lots of board games and a gas fireplace not to mention its own deck to admire the view and access the hot tub.
The living room upstairs has a large wood burning fireplace in a spacious great room with pool table, all glass front and open kitchen for lots of family gatherings.
Fun family vacations especially for teens are difficult to keep everyone happy. Heart Rock Lodge takes care of that for you by offering a large basketball court, zip line for younger children, firepit with log seating, obstacle bridges for races, and inside there is a real pinball machine, an electronic arcade with 60 games, and a Hickory pool table for kids and adults. For everyone’s entertainment there are 5 televisions in total, and the living room and playroom have 42-46” screens. On the lower deck is a large hot tub for relaxing after a long day of skiing or hiking. There are lots of nearby trails to explore, and you can walk to the top of the slopes. All of this without leaving the neighborhood but nearby there are loads of adventurous activities for entertainment. We would love to help fill your itinerary with caving, hiking, skiing, rafting, fly fishing, canoeing, rock climbing, bird watching, wildlife viewing, and incredible restaurants and local attractions. Heart Rock Lodge is where your vacation will Rock!!

The house was great! Everything was perfectly clean and well stocked. The 'kids cave' downstairs was a perfect place for the younger travelers to hang out and have their own space. Plenty of parking..we had three families with us. It's a quick drive down to the base of the mountain or an easy drop off or LONG walk to jump on Oma's Meadow and ski down. Communication, house, view and location were all great. We will be back!!- Lauren, Posted: 01/28/2019

We loved this house! It was spotless. The bed linens were very high quality and we appreciated the ample supply of towels and washcloths. The kitchen was very well stocked with very nice pots and pans. We all loved the video game (Ms Pac Man!) and pinball machine. But the best part of this house are the views from the back deck. Absolutely breathtaking...we would definitely stay here again.- Guest, Posted: 11/18/2019

We rented for a snow trip and birthday celebration. We did get a lot of snow so be sure to have proper gear and vehicles.

Close to shopping and skiing resorts! Thanks for a great stay!- Jennifer, Posted: 02/01/2021
