A true home away from home!

As soon as you walk into the property it feels like “home”. From the fresh flowers on the table to the muffins, freshly ground coffees & creamer and to the convenience of toiletries provided for guests, we had the experience of being very well taken care of during our stay. The soaking tub is a must... we spent every night around the fire pit and/or fireplace relaxing with a wine from the local Vineyard. Relax or read a book on the swing on the porch ... there’s a peacefulness and healing energy & quality about this space. We’re definitely coming back.


The perfect choice...

"We were on the go most of the time but thoroughly enjoyed the restaurants in Franklin and returning to the Sugar Shack to relax & chat on the porches, around the tables, and in the comfort of the living room. The bathroom with its lavish bathtub & shower was much in demand. We must come back in cooler weather to experience the fireplace and fire-pit and create hearty soups and stews and other dishes in the amazing chef's kitchen. Thank you Sarah for making our trip an unforgettable experience we will never forget."
