Plan your next escape from the city for the rolling hills and farmlands of Montgomery County, Maryland. Situated in Dickerson, MD, Sugarloaf Mountain has all the amenities for a romantic retreat with your significant other.  Just a short drive from Philadelphia and in close proximity to Washington, DC, the Sugarloaf Mountain region is the perfect spot for your next day trip.

Here’s a quick agenda for a day at Sugarloaf Mountain:

  • Start your day by taking in the countryside.  Sugarloaf Mountain has over 500 species of plants to admire while you hike trails up the mountain.  There are short and long trails available, well suited for hikers of any level.  Pack plenty of water and snacks, and look for white tailed deer and red foxes during a mid-day picnic.  For the more daring, horseback riding is available throughout the mountainous trails.
  • Once you’ve had your share of trekking through the great outdoors, head over to Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard where over 10 wine selections await you and your date.  On most Saturday and Sunday afternoons throughout the year, musical entertainment can be enjoyed while imbibing on some of the award-winning wines of Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard.
  • Continue your evening at the Victorian-style Comus Inn, the perfect choice for a romantic dinner.  The menu boasts American cuisine full of surf or turf options that pair well with the elegant interior and friendly service of the Inn.  Be sure to get there before dark as the Comus Inn has an amazing view of the sunset.
  • End your evening at the Pleasant Springs Farm Bed & Breakfast in Boyds, MD, just a short drive from Sugarloaf Mountain.  Quaint countryside cabins that sit on thirty acres of gardens, woodlands, and pastures await you and your date to wind down after a perfect day at Sugarloaf Mountain.  A full breakfast is served at your convenience between 7 and 10 a.m.
