SARAHíS MOUNTAIN RETREAT CABIN
MONTEBELLO, VIRGINIA 24464
Sarah's Mountain Retreat
Cabin is one of the most unique places you will ever have the opportunity to visit. Sarahís cabin is nestled on a hilltop
leading to one of the highest mountains in Central
Virginia. Every hiker traveling the
Appalachian Trail visits Spy Mountain Rock, which sits on top of Spy
Mountain. Sarahís cabin will
combine the true meaning of mountain living with the modern convenience of
today. Sit on the deck and observe
the majestic beauty of the valley area called Montebello. Listen to the rushing water in the
valley as it flows through a state fish hatchery that was originally owned and
operated by Sarahís family. While
sitting on the deck, you can observe Virginiaís wildlife, including white-tailed
deer, rabbits, and turkeys feeding in the fields.
If you are longing for a
mountain vacation, Sarahís cabin is the right location for you. Kick back on the cabin decks and enjoy
the solitude and privacy.
When rested, take a walk to the country store like Sarahís family once
did and meet local residents.
Donít forget to drive down the mountain a bit and try your skills at
hiking up Crab Tree Falls. The
hiking trail at Crab Tree Falls is parallel to the waterfalls. Crab tree, as locals refer to it, is
located on the headwaters of the Tye River. Crab tree falls is owned/operated by the
National Forest Service. As
the water cascades down the mountain, it earns the distinction of being the
highest waterfall east of the Mississippi River. If you donít feel like a climb, take
your fishing pole and try your luck at native trout fishing. You can always move down stream and fish
some of the best trout stocked waters in Virginia.
Now that you have had the opportunity to hike on the Appalachian Trail to Spy Rock and climb Crab Tree Falls, visit the Blue Ridge Parkway. After traveling west three miles, you can go in either direction on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Traveling north visits Wintergreen Ski Resort where you can play golf during the off season. Humpback Rock over looking the beautiful Shenandoah Valley is just a short distance past Wintergreen Ski Resort. If you go south on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the panoramic views will equal a northern trip. If youíre not interested in a parkway trip, then go off the mountain and visit Natural Bridge, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Another natural wonder, Natural Chimneys, is within driving distance of Natural Bridge. Donít forget to visit Lexington and rediscover Virginia history. Drive to Staunton and visit the American Frontier Culture Museum or visit the birthplace of the Nationís twenty-eighth president, Woodrow Wilson.
