Meadows of Dan Getaway

Dreary weather got you down? We have just the solution; head for the hills! No really--the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, complete with fresh air, gorgeous overlooks and friendly faces is just what you need to revitalize the spirit. Spend a weekend at Blue Ridge Mountain Farm, a cozy cabin with fantastic views, a full kitchen and more than 20 acres of private woods with hiking trails. The cabin is located just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, so feel free to visit the lovely Mabry Mill, a historic water-powered grist mill, sawmill and blacksmith shop. Head to nearby Meadows of Dan to find some rustic treasures at Poor Farmer's Market, and enjoy some sweet confections from Nancy's Candy Company, the ideal souvenir that may or may not last the trip home.
