My husband and I first stayed at Sugar Tree Inn for our 3rd wedding anniversary in September 2015. We stayed for two nights in St. Mary's Cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed our spacious cabin filled with fresh mountain air, the whirlpool tub, private deck, and large sitting area. There is a TV in the room; No cable, but we enjoyed their... More

My wife and I, in transit, booked in for a night and deeply regret not staying a week. Jeff and Becky, our hosts, couldn't have been easier or our accommodations more comfortable but the 19th century-style wood lodge itself and elevated location were spectacular. A charm of hummingbirds, sunset on the Blue Ridge (5 minutes off the Scenic Drive), stars... More

Excellent, abundant breakfasts. The evening meal was also delicious. The hosts were delightfully assisted by their grandchildren when we were there. Precious! Smack in the middle between Lexington and Staunton, it is easy to get to fine dining, museums, breweries, wineries.... and right off the Blue Ridge Parkway, accessible to all kinds (and difficulties) of outdoor activities. Really spectacular.

Took a solo trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway and stayed at Sugar Tree Inn on my 3rd night. A beautiful inn tucked in the woods at the north end of the parkway. A very quiet and remote stay for those looking to get away. Becky and Jeff were wonderful innkeepers, cooking dinner and breakfast to request. Limited internet and... More

If you want to stay in the middle of nowhere in a comfortable inn/b&b, this is it. The hosts are quite friendly and helpful, and the breakfast they prepare is huge and delicious. Sugar Tree Inn is 1 mile off the Blue Ridge Parkway, and as quiet and peaceful as it gets. There are 4 or 5 houses, each having... More

My wife and I booked here as we were travelling down the Blue Ridge Parkway and it is only a few minutes away. It is very rustic and very quiet. We were in the Rockbridge room and it was spacious with a fire place that is available in the winter. When we arrived the outside temperature was about 80F but... More

We do serve dinner six days a week so I'm not sure why he said we don't. He stayed in a downstairs room so it may have been cool when he arrived even though it was 80 degrees outside, but the heat is fully functional and would have taken only a minute or two to warm it up. Most people... More

Fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, peaceful setting in the mountains just off the Blue Ridge Parkway-how can you beat that? But it gets better. Wait till you see the huge breakfast with Becky's Baked oatmeal. Here's the secret: Start with incredible oatmeal Season it to perfection Bake it, with love and care Jeff and Becky are the perfect hosts.

Sugar Tree Inn is a beautiful, rustic lodge and cabins in the mountains near the Blue Ridge Parkway. The inn is clean and comfortable. The front porch is filled with rocking chairs that overlook the mountains, and there is a trail that winds around the property and opens up into more mountain views. Breakfast was excellent, and dinner was very... More

We're glad Elaine enjoyed her visit and we appreciate her kind words but would like to respond to a few of her comments. Our driveway is a bit steep in places, (remember she's from Florida) but it is safe day or night. Well over 100,000 guests have been up and down it without any mishaps. I don't know who her... More

My wife and I chose Sugar Tree Inn based largely on the many positive reviews I had read about it and we were not disappointed. Jeff and Becky are wonderful hosts who really care that their guests have a wonderful stay. The lodge is simply magnificent and takes you back in time a bit with the log cabin feel. One... More
