Wildlife in the Blue Ridge Mountains

  • The Blue Ridge Mountains is home for many types of wildlife. While the majority of this wildlife is harmless and beautiful, there are some species that are dangerous and/or poisonous. By booking a reservation with us you are taking full responsibility for yourself and any injuries that may occur while you are here in the Blue Ridge at The Retreat at Crabtree Falls. Please be advised to stay away from large rocky areas, heavily grass and weed-covered areas to avoid snakes.
  • There are black garden snakes, copperheads, and rattlesnakes in the area.  DO NOT TRY TO KILL THE SNAKES. This is often how most people get bitten.
  • There are also bears in the Blue Ridge. If you see a bear, do not turn away or run. Make yourself as big and loud as you can and wave your arms and yell. This should frighten the bear away. If you run, you may be attacked. By booking your reservation with us, you are agreeing that we are NOT responsible for any harm inflicted by wildlife.
  • Also, please understand that the spring and fall seasons bring a natural influx of both ladybugs and stinkbugs to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our cabins are professionally treated regularly by Orkin Pest Control and Critter Control to control all pests. However, we cannot guarantee that they will not be present at times in your cabin. This is a natural event and we are fighting the forces of nature in trying to control them.
10% Discount for military and veterans.
