My guess is this Inn was once a home a long time ago. Today it’s an Inn with more charm than any little hotel could ever hope for. Located in a forested area, it has everything you need. The kitchen facilities are full, downstairs and common to all, which actually worked out great for us. The beds are very comfortable and the folks who run the inn are great to deal with. We came from Texas and couldn’t believe they have no mosquitoes and no chiggers. It’s located in Nickelsville, VA which is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. So, if you’re looking for a place to go in beautiful hardwood forests, this is a great place to stay!!
My wife visited the area in Aug 2017 to see the Ralph Stanley Museum as other bluegrass related areas. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable and the wrap around porch was awesome for nighttime relaxing! On our next trip to that area, we're likely to stay there again. It's only downside is something they can't fix; because of the mountainous surroundings and slow, serpentine roads, it isn't totally convenient to anywhere else. Having said that, the area is not an area one should choose to enjoy at anything other than a leisurely pace Y'all say howdy to Miss Shirley when you call the Sugar Maple Inn, and ask her to show you the nearby "eternal" underground stream!
I usually do not leave reviews, but really appreciate it when others do, so I decided I would write a review on this one. We really enjoyed our stay at this Inn! It was like we stepped back in time and that was fun. It was SUPER clean!! Honestly, probably one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. I usually do not sleep well in hotels, but I slept like a baby there. We would definitely recommend and definitely want to go back when we can stay longer.
We were looking for a place to stay between hikes and that weekend happened to be the weekend of the Remote Area Medical event in Wise so everything else was completely booked. I lucked upon finding the Sugar Maple Inn and I was so glad I did. Shirley was really friendly and easy to work with. We had the whole house to ourselves and it turned what would have been just another random hotel stay into something that felt special. If we're ever in the area again, we'll make sure to make another visit.
Husband and I stayed for the week of race in Bristol. Had entire house to ourselves till Friday. Diana dropped in to check on us and advise us on things to do. Went to Hicks music fest on Friday. It is a must see. GREAT local talent. A friendlier place you will never find. Definitely recommend staying here! Stayed in Bush Mill room. Yes it had a private bathroom.
