Check out the Maples Farm at Sugar Creek Retreat!!

Sugar Creek Retreat now has a 3rd option for nightly rentals. The Maples Farm has an amazing story and here's a little history: 

--Built by Civil War Colonel Joel Deer in the late 1870s, Maples Farm appears to be constructed entirely from lumber cut locally, and likely finished at Deer Mill, a family-owned sawmill on Sugar Creek which is still memorialized by the Deer Mill covered bridge. During a complete rehab of the house in 2013, the owners discovered a hand-hewn frame construction that had no nails—just fitted slots and wooden pegs! The house was the main farmstead for the surrounding 200 acres on all sides. 

The evening sunsets overlooking Shades State Park are truly spectacular!
