Wake up in your cozy cabin, pour yourself a hot, fresh cup of coffee and step out onto your porch. Take a deep breath of fresh, mountain air and remember a simpler time. Forget the craziness of daily life. Unplug and reconnect to what matters most in life. Listen to the thunderous roar of thousands of gallons of water spilling over a cliff and crashing hundreds of feet below on ancient rocks. Feel the cool, damp air and the morning dew resting on a fern. Watch the sunrise over the mountain tops and hear the coyotes locating through the forest.
The serenity of nature at Crabtree Falls renews your spirit and lifts your soul. This waterfall is The Old Dominion’s best-kept secret, a picturesque piece of nature that reminds us of the beauty this world has to offer. Located midway between Charlottesville and Lynchburg, Virginia, just six miles off the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, Crabtree Falls is the largest vertical drop waterfall east of the Mississippi River: over 1500 feet!
With our cabins being just ½ mile from the falls, our guests enjoy the sounds of Crabtree Falls and the Tye River from their porches and beside campfires under the night stars. In a time where people so often spend most of their time in front of a screen, this truly is the best place for guests to press pause on screen time and to get back to experiencing what is best in life.Book a Stay
