Spend an idyllic winter vacation in a comfortable clean cottage in the heart of the Virginia mountains surrounded by nature. Find an environment ideal for rest, rejuvenation and reflection. Explore gorgeous walking trails, canoe, fish, stargaze and bike. The air is fresh, brisk and a special quiet and tranquility pervades the open fields and woodlands. For birders, you may spot a Great Blue Heron, Night Heron, Green Heron, or a Belted Kingfisher on the Montfair lake and many species of Hawks abound, including the Bald Eagle! Enjoy a serene paddle in a canoe on the small Montfair lake or fish for bass and brim and discover your inner fisherman.
Montfair is surrounded by local cideries, breweries, vineyards and wineries that have an extra special cozy warmth in the winter. Sit by a roaring fire, enjoy each tasting rooms’ unique and beautiful views and sip Virginia spirits. Stop in at one of the local country stores for a hot cocoa or coffee and a yummy homemade sandwich or hot breakfast biscuit. Make sure you save time to explore the Sugar Hollow entrance to Shenandoah National Park, you will discover this gem tucked away in the “holler” by following Sugar Hollow Rd. that follows the Moorman’s River. On days when the weather is below freezing you can witness huge icicles hanging down from the cliffs along the trails. These trails, views and rock formations are some of our favorites!
The small hometown of Crozet is a beautiful scenic 15 minute drive from your cozy cottage and offers fine dining, Sal’s Pizza, the iconic Crozet Pizza and fun local pubs.
