We returned to Sugar Hollow for the second time for our Family Reunion. It]s the perfect place for family members old and young.

300 acres of pristine natural beauty! The outside looks rustic but the inside of the lodge is GORGEOUS!! The people are wonderful and the views are to die for!! All of the rooms have king sized beds, but just ask Marty or Jim and they can break down the beds into twins, perfect for friends! Cannot wait to return!!!

This was about a 50 minute drive from the track, it looked nice, and the price was right. This is remote and very peaceful. The beds were comfortable. Everything was very clean. We watched deer...
