Sugarbush Resort will remodel rooms at the Sugarbush Inn in order to increase the property's occupancy capability. Currently the inn can comfortably accommodate up to 84 people. The resort plans to increase that number to 110.The decision to boost the historic inn's bed base came as a result of an increase in traffic from a particular market segment. During the 2005-06 season, the resort's sales team began a concerted effort to acquire more business from large tour operators. Those efforts began to pay off last year when Sugarbush noticed more business coming from that travel channel: specifically, operators whose clients consisted of families with up to three children looking for mid-priced lodging. Currently the majority of the inn's rooms are configured to sleep two people. The reconfiguration will increase some rooms' capacity to five. The inn will be closed from August 13 to December 19 while the remodel takes place.
