About Mica Gutierrez

The Sugar Shack started as a guest house for our friends and family, but we then saw the need for accommodations with the many wedding venues in the area. We purchased the adjoining 10 acres in 1995 and built our strawbale home down the hill. This 3 acre piece came available in 2010 and we bought it to build a barn and remodeled the Sugar Shack as well. We enjoy traveling, boating and exploring the areas many swimming holes. We live here with our 2 sons, 3 dogs, 4 chickens and 1 patient cat. We hope you enjoy your stay~

Mica Gutierrez purchased this cabin in 2010

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit, and Mica was really responsive and thoughtful. She took care of a few extra details knowing that we had young kids along, and was happy to give recommendations for nearby restaurants. The house itself was perfect - very clean with comfortable beds and lots of conveniences. We loved the decor and design of the place. It’s bigger than it looks, and had a fun vibe. Thanks for a great stay!

Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Down a dirt road, so very quiet. Exactly as pictured so no surprises. (Except the deer- they were a nice treat to watch in the morning) The layout was very easy to live in - even had some friends over for brunch and we all fit nicely for conversation. Cute. Had everything we needed. Good beds. Very clean. I would pick this spot again if we came back.

The Sugar Shack is a “Sweet” Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the shack while attending a local retreat and it worked so well for our group of friends. It is well stocked and has such a good feeling - large enough so not to feel cramped but cozy enough to share special conversations. And the setting is so peaceful, a true gem in nature.
