“A great find right next door to Sugarloaf”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

A one day ski trip to Sugarloaf from Connecticut is impossible due to the seven hour one-way drive-time. But that's where the good snow is. And so the idea was to stay the night before at the lodge. Then we could get up the next day, ski and make the drive home by midnight. But the price to stay the night at the mountain was crazy $$$...So this is where the Nestlewood Inn came in. Here you have a wonderful place to stay(see other reviews for details) near Sugarloaf for a fraction of the cost of staying at the mountain. The room was perfect;e.g., spacious, clean and the Innkeepers gracious(we arrived a bit later than we expected). Breakfast was at 7:30(we arrived a little early) and we had plenty of time to enjoy a stack of blueberry pancakes, fruit and a couple of cups of Carrabassett French Roast coffee, get acquainted with the Innkeeper; and make the 10 minute jaunt to Sugarloaf as they started the lifts at 8:30. Just what the doctor ordered!

Room Tip: There are 7 rooms. We were in Rm #2, first floor, with two queen beds. Perfect.

The Nestlewood Inn is the best place to stay near Sugarloaf. The lodge is new and beautiful -- a traditional post & beam construction with pine paneled walls, a large stone fireplace, and dozens of gorgeous oriental rugs. Each sleeping room is unique and tastefully furnished. The location is quiet and private. Breakfast is included in the stay, and the innkeepers will cheerfully accommodate your dietary preferences or requirements. Nestlewood was by far our favorite place to stay last year and a well-kept secret -- some weekends we were the only guests. Sadly for us (but not for the innkeepers), the secret is now "out." The rooms are booked well in advance and rates have nearly doubled. It's now out of our price range, but if your budget allows, Nestlewood should be your first choice of lodging.

The moment you walk into this beautiful new log cabin inn you feel welcomed & at home by the young couple innkeepers Dave & Alona. Only a minute to the Sugarloaf Mountain access road & nestled into a quiet spot in the woods with wonderful amenities. The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms modern, & everything about this inn is quality. And, Dave & Alona, who are friends with Seth Wescott the 2006 & 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist in the Downhill Bordercross, know everthing that's going on both on & off the mountain. They were wonderful hosts. I highly recommend the Nestlewood Inn for visitors to Sugarloaf who are looking for that perfect vacation spot.

Room Tip: All seven rooms are very nice

Just had a 2 night getaway with my mother at the Nestlewood Inn. Everything was perfect, I felt like we were at a luxurious home. The managers David and Alona were charming and accommodating. Great breakfast of blueberry pancakes and fruit. I think this Inn would work for any combination of people, families or couples. So great seeing Sugarloaf and the Rangley area after a few years of being away. Best sheets I have ever slept on and the house dog Sadie was great fun. Also Inn is on the Sugarloaf shuttle bus run so very convient.

Room Tip: We had first floor handicap room, great shower, lovely room.

My daughter and I stayed overnight during a college visit tip through New England. The hosts were great! And the stay was peaceful, the beds so comfortable and the blueberry pancakes with maple syrup and coffee in the am were fantastic. Wireless internet was a welcome bonus! We'll be back!

First, we would like to thank our hosts, David,Alona and of course Sadie. You could not have been better hosts. Your family makes the Nestlewood Inn what it is, without you the hospitality would not be the caiber it is today. Thank you.
Secondly, the Inn is a place that you would not expect to find in the Western Area of Maine. It really is a diamond in the ruff. They welcome ATV people , along with the mainstay of skiers in the winter. Although you can't leave from the parking lot of the Inn , you can drive 5-10 minutes South and go anywhere. Inside the Inn, it is spotless and welcoming. There is not much else to say but"Thank you for the hospitality and the wonderful accomodations.

Room Tip: clean and new.

Just down the road from Sugarloaf ski area, the Nestlewood Inn is a comfortable mountain home turned into a cozy Bed and Breakfast. Everything in the Inn was fresh and new. The large living room overlooked the surrounding woods. With a small number of rooms the Nestlewood felt like our private mountain home. A great Italian Restaurant (Hugs) is a short walk from the Inn.
