A motor court was built in the 1950s, now called the uptown cottages.

Guests will find that all rooms have air conditioning, heating, private bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi. Our Deluxe Cottages have a covered deck, fireplace and whirlpool tub - with easy access to our outdoor pool. Sugar Pine Ranch is a no smoking facility and no pets allowed.

The Inn at Sugar Pine Ranch is a private accommodation that offers an accessible guest room which provides amenities for individuals with audio-visual impairment and mobility assistive features such as grab bars in the private bathroom and van accessible parking with direct access to the guest room.  Due to the historic nature of the property and wooded surroundings, some areas of the property are unable to permit wheelchair and mobility accessibility to be readily achievable without destroying the historically preserved nature of our private accommodations. We care about accessibility and work hard to ensure that all guests irrespective of disability can be hosted comfortably at The Inn at Sugar Pine Ranch.  Please contact the us if you have any special requests or questions about our property's accessibility features. We do provide the accessibility features for individuals who face audio or visual impairment including braille signage and ADA A/V kits for our guest rooms.

In addition, trying to convert the 1 bed accessible room into a 2 bed accessible room is not easily achievable due to physical constraints.
