Be outside in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Amble on the Appalachian Trail, splash in the headwaters of the Tye River, rip down some singletrack at Sherando Lake, sample local craft beverages and foods. Then return to your own cozy cabin or family house at Love Ridge Mountain Lodging. At 2,800 feet and overlooking Love, Virginia, Love Ridge offers an elevated location, bordering the Blue Ridge Parkway just past milepost 16. Regardless of your mode of recreation, Love Ridge is the perfect getaway for a relaxing weekend away or your hub for outdoor adventure.
Enjoy unequaled access to hiking, biking and outdoor activities without even needing to get into your car. Find a deeper connection to nature while enjoying our ever improving campus with an onsite Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail, outdoor play and contemplative spaces and carless access to the Appalachian Trail. Relax with a tasty local beverage in the hot tub while taking in awe-inspiring mountain vistas. Go to sleep with the crickets and wake with the birds.
