So you've booked your stay with us in Crozet, Virginia! Congratulations! Now what? Is there anything to do out here or do you need to drive back into Charlottesville for fun? Many of our guests do enjoy Charlottesville, the downtown historic pedestrian mall, UVa, Monticello, all there is to offer in "town", but a real local experience can be found out here on the west side also!
Hello from Sugar Hollow! We are Tim and Dina, your hosts at The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm. My parents, and your friends, Dick and Hayden Cabell established this bed and breakfast back in 1995 and are now finally retiring after a long tenure. Dina and I are delighted to be able to keep our business in the family and we are looking forward to many years of innkeeping in our future! You will still see Hayden gardening and baking and Dick watching over the office on occasion so you will have a chance to stay in touch with them!
With an early winter blast coming through Virginia, we have the fireplace in the Great Room all fired up for our guests! I imagine we'll be tossing logs on all weekend. This year we are working on a new dining room configuration that will encourage our guests to enjoy the large window looking out over pasture and the fireplace during breakfast.
Now that the busy Fall season is winding down, we hope you will come join us by this cozy fire this Winter. We are open throughout the Holidays and beyond!
Just across the road from The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm flows the Moormans River, a picturesque mountain stream with tumbling rapids and still pools. The river runs down out of The Shenandoah National Park before joining the Mechums River to form the south fork of the Rivanna River. The best fishing seasons are around April and October, or whenever there has been adequate rainfall and the trees are relatively dormant, so that the cold spring water is flowing nicely in the river.
To continue our ongoing series on hiking around Charlottesville, Dina and I took advantage of a perfect Spring day and drove up to the base of Humpback Rocks hiking trail. We had been forewarned that this hike was pretty strenuous but we figured we are still young enough (at heart) that it would be worth a try.
