Adventure Awaits for the Whole Family

You mark the calendar, get the time off work, and start planning your Virginia getaway, but a question lingers in your head–will it be fun for everyone, including the teens in your family? With adventure surrounding Love Ridge in all directions, everyone is sure to have a blast, including the sometimes-hard-to-please teenage members of your family.

Trails wind through our property, making it safe for teens to bike and hike on their own, allowing them to explore while the adults get some space and enjoy the scenic views from the porch of one of our family cabins.

You’ll have the lush and beautiful Shenandoah Valley right at your doorstep, where teens and adults alike will love hitting the trails, swimming in its many lakes and rivers, and getting out in nature all day, followed by family fun at the cabin in the evenings.

A Nearby Lake That Has It All: Swimming, Bike-Riding, and Relaxing

Known as the “Jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains,” Sherando Lake is as good as it gets for a family day trip. The recreation area is just a short drive away, and if you are bringing canoes or other watersports gear, driving is your best bet. But it is also easily reachable by bike, which can add to the day’s adventure.

Set up a home base along the lake’s edge, the clear and warm water ideal for swimming under the summer sun.  Join them for a bit, then kick back on the soft sand with your feet in the water, taking in the majestic views of the calm lake and the forested mountain ridges.

An extensive trail system circumnavigates Sherando Lake, making it easy for your teens to go on mountain biking outings during a day trip to the recreation area.  Head out as a family, or split up and let the teens get some solo time and biking on their own.

Relax and Unwind, With Plenty of Space for Everyone

Our many choices of cabins, each with a comfortable layout, are the perfect place to wind down with the family after a fun-filled day. Three of our mountain cabin rentals (Torry Ridge, Sherando, and Ravens Roost) have outdoor decks with hot tubs, so if the teens need some space, they can hang out in the hot tub while the adults relax inside, or vice versa. And every cabin has its unique touches, like the foosball table upstairs in Torry Ridge and Ravens Roost, which everyone in the family will enjoy.

Book your stay with us, and the teens in your family will be just as excited as you are for your Love Ridge getaway!
