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...

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...

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...

My husband and I took advantage of an off-season special (March) and stayed in the Goshen Pass Room. The room was great, breakfast and service was wonderful, and the mountain views are gorgeous! The inn was very close to our primary excursion location: Crabtree Falls. The ONLY negative is the driveway from the main road to the main lodge. It's...

We're glad these folks enjoyed their stay and we do know our driveway is an interesting one. But no one (in 33 years) has ever had a problem,,, you just go 5~10 mph and take it easy. Once you've been down it once, it's not so bad. We're looking forward to their return visit!

Very peaceful and conducive to hold meetings. Rooms were charming, clean and comfortable, staff was out of this world, and the food was amazing. Lots of beauty, sunsets from the porch, hiking to the Falls, and plenty of antiquing possibilities. The only thing I didn't like was having to leave.

The Sugar Tree Inn is a great place to unplug. It is nestled in the mountain forest just below the Blue Ridge Parkway. The location made a great launching point for our daily excursions whether it was hiking, visiting wineries/breweries, or driving into town for the day. The hosts are exceptional and Becky is a great cook - you have...

We stayed 2 nights in St Mary's cabin. This accommodation was spacious and had a balcony that overlooked the forest with deer, squirrels and various bird life. It was a very relaxing atmosphere. Cooked breakfasts were great and a chance to chat to other guests if you so feel. Our hosts gave us helpful information on what to visit in...

Stayed in St Mary's Cabin. Very Clean and comfortable. Back porch looks into the woods so it feels like there is no one around at all. Breakfast was phenomenal... Baked Oatmeal Rules! Dinner was cozy and well prepared. Owners are very friendly. Already planning the next trip. FYI. The road in is fine. It is a single lane and has...

The Sugar Tree Inn is rustically beautiful! Very nice innkeepers, very clean, in a beautiful setting, great food. We highly recommend the pork loin -- and the carrot cake -- if you choose to have a weekend dinner. My only reason for giving the inn a "very good" rather than "excellent" is for this heads-up: the inn is literally in...

Overall, this is a nice B&B. Not exceptional. We stayed in the Sugar Tree room in the main lodge, which says it has a full mountain view. It does, but from one very small window plus the window in the bathroom! Dinner was adequate. We both had the crab cakes. The dinner rolls were great, but when we asked if...

“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
