High in the Blue Ridge Mountains is a haven of natural beauty called the Sugar Tree Inn, which is set on 28 wooded acres at 2,800 feet. The Inn is a place of peace and solitude. Just outside the Inn’s door you can walk nature trails alongside our rushing creek. Five minutes away, the magnificent Blue Ridge Parkway stretches lazily along the mountain peaks. There are miles of vistas and great hiking, including the Appalachian Trail. Enjoy canoeing and tubing on the rivers, or horseback riding on the bridle paths. Don’t miss our wineries and the local delicacies that make this a special corner of Virginia. Follow a hummingbird from the porch feeders to the dogwoods below. As evening falls, enjoy a spectacular sunset and then marvel at the stars as night encompasses the mountains.
Come relax and enjoy our very special place with your very special someone!
Meet the fantastic Mr. and Mrs. Fox, the innkeepers. And just how did these two crazy cats get into innkeeping, you ask. Well, it was a deep longing of mine to be an innkeeper...No, not really. It was a practical decision on our part. Mr. Fox's profession kept us moving around to try and stay relevant with his industry. In fact, we have lived in four states in our thirteen years together. We have also welcomed two cubs to our family and we wanted to settle, with Virginia being the most likely locale since we both grew up here. (Well, technically Mr. Fox is a half and half. Half Jersey. Half Virginia.) So, after years of trying to make our square professions fit into the round locations we wanted to live, we decided to branch out on our own. I made a list of all the things we knew how to do, ( I did mention it was a practical decision.) and started brainstorming. Innkeeping seemed to be a natural extension of our skill set. So, we made it happen.
