For our anniversary my husband and I like to head to the mountains and watch the fall colors change. Usually we head down to Shenandoah National Park, as it is a quick and easy drive from DC. But a couple years ago we decided to venture a little further afield into the Blue Ridge mountains. Since then the Sugar Tree...

We drove down from DC to get away from the city and get some fresh air. The Inn is located near some great trails, but is also located not far from some good restaurants. The price of the room includes a great breakfast. We had a wonderful weekend.

Anytime you need some fresh air, we'll be here! Mountain air and country food does wonders for your constitution. Not to mention all the hiking nearby.

I took my wife for our 5 year anniversary. We stayed in the main lodge, the room was nice and very romantic with our own fireplace. The inn keepers were very nice and personable, they showed that they really cared about their guest. While we did not partake in dinner during our stay, we did have breakfast at the lodge...

If you want to leave cares and worries behind and kick back and relax for a couple days, Sugar Tree Inn is just what you're looking for. Nestled high in the Blue Ridge mountains between Staunton and Lexington VA, it's the perfect place to curl up before the fireplace with a good book. Or, just as nice, use it as...

This Inn is very "homie" the beds are comfortable and the breakfast was very good. We loved the cabin ambience and in the fall is beautiful with the orange trees. The Inn keeper was sweet and very welcoming. My only suggestion is the tub ran out of hot water very quickly, so we couldn't take a hot bath. I will...

Simply a wonderful visit to Sugar Tree Inn. All accommodations were excellent and the owner/innkeepers were very kind and accommodating. Definitely worth the drive to stay at this Inn. Keep in mind when booking that several rooms do not have TVs. Plan to just relax and enjoy the scenery.

My husband and I returned this week from yet another great visit to Sugar Tree Inn! It has become our favorite place to just "be" and relax. When we travel the things we enjoy the most are B&B's! Becky and Jeff are the most congenial hosts we have had as they welcome us like old friends, show us around, tell...

We were greeted by Jeff, who was a delight and immediately made us feel welcome and showed us to a beautiful room. However from there we felt things went downhill, when we meet the lady of the house, Becky, she completely ignored us initially and then when faced with no choice she was pretty curt with us. Dinner was nice...

Ignoring and being curt with guests is not what Becky does, so I'm not sure what the real story is here. But I do know that this guest did run the deer off while a dining room full of guests were trying to see them. He clearly didn't care about the other guests, and Becky clearly did. We're sorry he...

Our second visit to Sugar Tree Inn was as wonderful as our first. Quiet, secluded and casual this Inn has become our "get away escape" from the hustle and bustle. Becky and Jeff are always friendly and are very knowledgeable about area attractions and restaurants. Their breakfasts are always tasty, hearty and filling. Sharing our breakfast with the local wildlife...

We stayed as a group in the Creek House on a recent bike trip. The hosts were amazing-- they helped with SAG for a fellow rider, they catered to our needs on a Sunday night, and even aided us on our way kindly in the morning-- and the location right off the BRP is amazing. Breakfast was amazing: the eggs...

“We chose a 'cabin' type room on the back side facing the woods - our choice, and we loved it. TV & wifi - we wanted to be unplugged.”
  • Our back porch view of the woods, peacefull & beautiful!
  • Cabin we were in - our very private room was on the back
  • Cozy & comfortable, first-class sheets, pillows, towels, great fireplace too
