~Welcome to Sugarland Creek Ranch and Equine Retreat~
The town of Sugarland Creek is home to over two thousand residents and is surrounded by the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. We’re only fifteen minutes from the downtown area, where you can shop at local boutiques, grab a latte, catch a movie, or simply enjoy the views. We’re an all-inclusive ranch. While we provide rustic lodging, each cabin is handicapped-accessible with ramps and smooth walking trails. If you need assistance with traveling between activities, we’ll provide you with a staff member to pick you up in one of our handicapped-accessible vehicles at any time. Please request at the front desk or dial ‘0’ on your room phone. We’re here to help in any way we can.
To make your stay here the best experience, meet the family and learn about everything we have to offer at the retreat to ensure you have the vacation of a lifetime!
