Recent Old Rag Mountain reviews

  • Amazing place!

    "Stayed here with a group of friends earlier this summer to celebrate a birthday. Everyone raved about how beautiful it was and continues to do so a month later. The house itself is wonderful - large and beautifully appointed with plenty of beds and bathrooms - and the land surrounding it is lush and verdant and peaceful. We spent our days biking and running and hiking and then cooked amazing dinners in the enormous kitchen. Best of all was the profusion of fireflies that appeared once the sun had set. I haven't seen that many fireflies since I was a kid. It was a wonderful weekend."

  • Perfect getaway!!

    "I recently stayed at the cabin with my girlfriend and the only way our stay could have been better is if we would have stayed longer than the two nights we booked it. The cabin itself is very clean and cozy, but no more than two couples would be comfortable since there is not much space inside, A family with young kids would have a great time though. The surrounding area is ideal for walks through the forest, and we drove a short 10 minute drive to Old Rag trail. It took us about 5-6 hours to complete the circuit, but the rock scramble is definitely worth the effort, loads of fun! There are other trails nearby that we will need to go back to, as well as visit at least one of the many vineyards that offer wine tastings in the area. Thanks Connie for all your help! The only thing I would include in the instructions you send by email is that once you're in Lisa Lane, to take a left following the pond in order to get to the cabin immediately. Out first instinct was to keep going straight to the other cabins."

  • Perfect place to stay if you want to hike Old Rag

    "We LOVED our stay at this cottage! We got there in time for a nice lunch and then my husband and I walked to the Sharp Rock winery and managed to fit in a wine tasting and a glass of wine before my son collected us for 5 pm Mass at St. Peter's in Washington, VA. It was great to sleep in the next day, have a hearty breakfast, and then hike Old Rag. We left my 79 yo mother at the cottage that day and she had a lovely time relaxing. We then came back, took showers, had a great dinner, and then relaxed some more. We will definitely be back! PS - we usually make the Old Rag hike a day trip from the DC area but that means getting up at dawn, driving 2 hours, hiking for almost 5 hours, and then another 2 hour drive home ... using the cottage as our base was a much, much better plan!"

  • Family get together @ Whippoorwill

    "Our hosts forgot nothing, there were plenty of mountains bikes if you had the stamina! Bathrooms were well stocked with towels, linens were soft and clean and plentiful,the house was historic and warm. Kitchen was so well equipped, except for the ants who were uninvited, you could have cooked anything. Just great!"
