Welcome to Sugar Water Manor. We are so excited you found us. We have three lodging options on our property and each is wonderful in its own way. They all share our 70 acres allowing our guests to safely be able to use all of our amenities at the same time, social distanced. Sugar Water Manor is the perfect place to explore the Eastern Shore, MD.
When we built and designed each area we did so to incorporate the most amount space for each guest as possible. For example, at the pool we designed three separate sitting areas on each side of the large pool and it is designated for each lodge. The fire pit is a 16x16 space allowing each guest to enjoy ample space if all are there at the same time. In addition, the maximize number of guest on the property is 12 at anytime.
During this time when we all need to social distance and miss our friends and family, Sugar Water Manor gives you plenty of space to gather outside or on screened porches with fresh air to allow for social distanced gathering and lots of air hugs.
Here is a bit about each of our lodges at Sugar Water Manor:
Maximum number of total guests - 2

Bedrooms - The Loft is a studio space with a king bed, rocking chair, table with 2 chairs
Bathrooms - One large bathroom with a full size shower
Kitchen - While there is no kitchen in The Loft, there is a mini-fridge, microwave (the only one on property) and there is a grill outside of the Apiary Workshop you may ask to be set up.

Please note: The Loft is not appropriate for infants or children. It has open steps from The Loft and the steps are a curved. Also beware you may not ever want to leave!
Our suggestion: If you are staying with us Monday-Friday you can order dinner to be delivered from Squeaky’s. Also pack up a dinner to cook at the fire pit! We suggest foil packets pre-filled and ready for the grill. For lunches you can pack items to keep in the refrigerator (it is small but mighty and has a small freezer).
