... took some photos of their Lincoln Highway sign. The fruit stand had marvellous fruit and vegetables, so we loaded up. Next, we went to CVS Pharmacy and got some necessities, then filled up with gas, and lastly, we went to the recycling center in Chambersburg. We had been collecting diet coke and Bud cans since the beginning of this trip a month ago, and decided to recycle here after asking someone where to ...
Travel 30 miles down the Skyline Drive Road to Big Meadows campground. It is an older campground than Mathews Arm and not as nice. The campsites are more open and not as large. Hard to find a site to fit a 32 foot Motorhome! The one thing this campground has are showers which we dont use. We settle in and read for the afternoon then walk around the campground!
It gets windy and cold later so no fire tonight. Rains in the night!
Leave DC and head West to the Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. This is a 100 mile north south drive on top of the Shenandoah Mountain range. You are up at around 3,000 feet the whole time so it can get cool this time of year! As we enter the park we see that 2 of the 4 parks are already FULL and it is only 12:30, we realize it is Saturday! As you drive along the ...

... and turns out its illegal to pull into a rest stop in a national park! We're now on the national parks naughty list for the next 5 years! Ah he was sound enough, but gave us the "there's a lot of bad people out there" lecture. As a result when we did get to a truck stop en route to Charlottesville neither of us slept too well!! Thankfully no bad people bothered us and our first night on the road was still a success ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Once Upon a Mountain Luray
After spending a considerable amount of time researching for a quick getaway, my fiance and I decided to book a week night at Once Upon A Mountain. Actually, we just got back a few hours ago! We had a wonderful time!! The inn turned out to be a beautiful large log home up on a mountain. Yes, the views from the house were truly breath-taking! Christa, our hostess, was very kind and accomodating. She is also very bright (check out all the books around the house!). She has two dogs, Mr. Mack and Willie that are so friendly. You will love them! We stayed in the Queen's Suite which had a very comfortable sleigh bed, a two-person bath tub and a private entrance to the deck. We didn't do much except shopping in Luray, but it was very nice to come back to the inn. After a romantic dinner at a restaurant of her suggestion, we spent a quiet half hour in the hot tub. It was so relaxing and made the trip from Fairfax totally worth it. The next day we woke up to a pot of terrific coffee and tea. Christa made for breakfast: yogurt granola parfait as the first course, then a plate of fritata, sausage and fresh fruit for the main course. It was -so- delicious! The worst part of the trip was leaving. My fiance and I will come back in a few weeks. Once Upon A Mountain is less than a 2 hour drive from Washington DC and I highly recommend it! Christa, I know you are reading this and wanted to say thank you so much for your hospitality and we look forward to coming back soon!
A Magical Place!
My wife and I got married on Once Upon a Mountain. This is a magical place. Quiet, beautiful, and clean. We could not have asked for more. I highly recommend it.
Yea, this place is GOOD!
This place is FANTASTIC! First of all, the Shenandoah valley in the fall in gorgeous, and this house does the valley justice! We had a room which overlooked the valley. In addition, there is a hot tub open year-round with the same fantastic view. My wife and I were relaxed after 10 minutes. Would we come back, ABSOLUTELY!
A Wonderful and Tranquil Retreat...
My boyfriend and I went to Once Upon a Mountain to celebrate our 6 year anniversary. There we were greeted by the B&B's wonderful host, Krista, and her adorable dogs. The view was breathtaking, and stargazing in the hottub was an ethereal experience. Krista's breakfasts were delicious and she knew how to keep us happy. We will definitely come back here again.
We just returned from a wonderful stay at Once Upon A Mountain, and can't recommend it highly enough!
I was a little bit nervous because I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, but this place was wonderful. Christa, the hostess, is an absolute delight. We loved coming home to our sheets turned down, and chocolates placed on our pillows. We stayed in the Queens Suite, with a wonderful (huge) jacuzzi bathtub. The candles that Christa placed around the bathtub were definitely a nice touch, as were the plush bathrobes for both of us. I particularily loved the breakfasts- interesting and delicious items I had never had before, and beautifully presented. Christa also puts a beverage of your request outside of your room about an hour or two before breakfast, and I requested blueberry tea- which was a fantastic luxury to wake up to! The house is large, yet comfortable, and the view gorgeous. We also had a great time in the surrounding area: horseback riding, tubing, and visiting Luray Caverns. We had a decadant dinner at the Jordon Hollow Inn one night, and visited a local Italian place another. The scenery is gorgeous, and it was a very relaxing break from the real world. I was sad to leave, but am looking forward to finding an excuse to go back. Thanks again Christa for such a wonderful stay!
For my birthday surprise, my wife took me to the Once Upon A Mountain Bed & Breakfast. A long, winding, gravel drive leads you to Christa Le Clere's beautiful hide-away, high up in the hills, set right in front of an astonishing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Imagine my bewilderment as we transitioned from the fast hustle & bustle of Washington D.C. to the consuming peace of the Shenandoah Valley!
A Home Away From HOme
I absolutely loved the weekend we spent at Once Upon A Mountain, and am looking forward to staying there again!
The mountain location is very peaceful and relaxing. Christa made us feel at home right from the beginning. Besides the great food and wonderful atmosphere, I feel like I've made a new friend.
Thank you, Christa, for a wonderful weekend!
Once Upon a Mountain Bed and Breakfast is a great place to spend a relaxing weekend. My wife and I have enjoyed a stay there twice so far, and will undoubtedly return again.
Spectacular Mountain View!
My husband and I decided to go to Lurray for our honeymoon. Neither of us had been there before and I insisted on staying at a Bed and Breakfast. So we searched for a few bed and breakfast places online and decided upon "Once Upon A Mountain". We read the description and saw some photographs on the website and it seemed to match our criteria.
However, what we did not expect was to be so mesmerized by the place. The mountain view is absolutely stunning, the house is beautiful with a fire pit and hot tub outdoor in the garden area, and the host was so gracious! We recommend "Once Upon a Mountain" not just for honeymooners but for anybody who needs a getaway! This place is perfect for that. We're already making plans to go back at the end of the year!
