Car: Necessary

Only 20 minutes away is the Blue Ridge Parkway @ Otter Creek (MP 60). Another 5 minutes down VA-130 (Elon Road) and you arrive at the James River @ Snowden. Here you can enjoy a pleasurably and easy hike by going south across the river on the Appalachian Trail (AT). Or, try the strenuous 4 mile hike going north to Fuller Rock @ 2,472ft for spectacular views of the James River Valley and the city of Lynchburg . There is also good trout fishing (stocked in season) as you ascend on the AT on a little mountain stream, Rocky Row Run. You will also find a public boat ramp right where this stream enters the James.


Owner info

About the owner: We are fun & loving couple who have fully renovated an 1850's farmhouse overlooking Tobacco Row Mountain in Amherst county, VA. We love to hike and explore the AT and Blue Ridge parkway, both only 20 minutes away. We have begun a native plant garden and a wildflower meadow. Janet loves 'her birds' as she sits and drinks her coffee or tea at the kitchen window. Dick is a fern fanatic and has plant many species in the garden. Since we are still both working in Richmond, VA and are hardly there , we began sharing Oak Lawn about three years ago. We are pleased to offer our second home for others to enjoy should your travel destination include Lynchburg or Central VA.
