My girlfriend and I took another couple with us to stay here for a short Saturday to Wednesday trip. I know that the Winter is this area's slow season, but I have to say that we had the most amazing time in Sky Valley. The environment is extremely peaceful, the people are so friendly, and there are lots of amenities on site. The golf course is in immaculate shape and the indoor hot tub was phenomenal. We drove a short 35 minutes or so over to Sapphire Valley, NC to go skiing/snow boarding. On the way we stopped in Highlands, NC which is a small town right on the other side of the mountain from Sky Valley with GREAT views along to way.
On Monday of our trip, we decided to hike along one of the trails that is actually on the property. It starts at the base of a beautiful waterfall and follows a very nice creek/river (Mud Creek) for about a mile or so, and then back up to the waterfall. While on the trail, I proposed to my girlfriend which was essentially just icing on the cake.
We had very little cell phone and wifi service, which was actually kind of nice to be separated from the technological and social media society we have become. The units are said to be "out-dated", but we felt like they provided the exact atmosphere we were looking for. It gives off a rustic feel of being at "Grandmas House", with more modern appliances, showers, faucets, etc.
VERY IMPRESSED overall, and can not wait to return.
