First of all, the location of the Sugar Loaf Lodge is absolutely lovely. It's right on the water, and there's a dock if you have a boat. But if you plan to actually go inside and use your room, be warned that everything else about it is grimey and poorly-maintained. My visit began with room keys (actual KEYS, not cards) that required jiggling and a hip-shove to open the door. The bedspread was old and the sheets were grey and worn. Towels were threadbare - you get the picture. I stayed for 2 nights; the first night I was having trouble with the lights in the room so I went to call the office and the phone was dead! So I got dressed and walked to the office and it was closed. I wondered who I would call for help if I had a serious problem, but fortunately that never came up. The office was also closed when I checked out in the morning, so if you need a receipt be sure to make arrangements when you check in. Basically, like others have said, the Sugar Loaf Lodge is a low-key and nostalgic nod to the 70s. Just remember that along with nostalgia comes plumbing, flooring, linens and towels that have seen better days. Next time I'll stay elsewhere even if it means paying more.
