Guests of Sugar Ridge stay in their 10 simple cabins (max 4 people per cabin) that encircle the main lodge. The emphasis at Sugar Ridge is on “reflection and letting go” so the cozy cabins are surrounded by nature, sparsely furnished and without a television or phone. They are spaces to rest in and to retreat from everyday life.

Where possible, environmental and eco-friendly practices are in place. Five of the cabins and part of the retreat centre incorporated straw bale building techniques, in addition to insulating the cabin, this method also cools the cabins down in summer.
