We left Charlotte around 8am with our shortest drive yet, ~7 hours if straight through. The drive up I77 has been beautiful through the mountains but the kids had a rough morning, they were probably tired. We stopped for lunch in Roanoke Virginia and checked out the second biggest man made star and a great overlook of Roanoke valley! Afternoon has been better and less than 160 miles to Baltimore! So far 1610 miles + (we started the odometer in Brenham, TX) and 9 ...
... she already knew).
Around midnight I heard lots of yelling and exclamations. Shortly thereafter,Betsy walked in with the cash spilling out of her pocket. She was the big winner! The wives of the men, who I met the next weekend at a joint family camping trip, were all thrilled to have a woman beat their husbands. Several of them said, "you know, our husbands are really competitive." I just smiled and said, "you haven't met Betsy, have you?."
... e.g. "you're doing great, Keep it up. Wow, Way to go. Or my favorite: "Here, put your foot on my thigh and then you can reach it."
This hike also had a momma bear and her cub. We had an extended viewing time of the mom trying to get the cub out of the tree. Finally, she went up, grabbed the cub's tail and pulled it down.
We had a day of recovery and then went on a five mile loop on a Nature Conservancy trail. Wild life on this trail: ...

A 12 mile painless hike over the big mountain was handed to us!! Perfect day for slack packing, because by now it was getting really hot out. Flinch's husband also provided a LOT of much appreciated trail magic - thank you so much, made everyone's day :) Made it past our destination for camp :), we ended up ...

Tomorrow we go to the Richard Petty Museum in Randleman, NC and on to Charlotte, NC
PS: We got back to the trailer the outside temperature was 97F and very humid -- inside the trailer was 101F - we are running the air conditioner - Don't like this humidity.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Mark Addy Nellysford
Io e mia moglie siamo stati per la prima volta al Mark Addy per il nostro primo anniversario di matrimonio ed è stato memorabile... purtroppo non in senso positivo. È triste vedere una casa così bella e i giardini attorno rovinati.
We stayed at the Mark Addy Inn for three days in April. Our room, Tiger Lily, was everything we could hope for. Beautiful king bed. Lots of windows for the sun to stream into. For my husband, a flat screen T.V. on the wall ingenuously hidden from sight by a bamboo shade. All the amenities were top notch. Fresh flowers in the room. Lovely jacuzzi in the bathroom. Not to forget the tasty Hershey kisses.
Charming and Hospitable
What a perfectly charming place. Beautiful old structure, wonderful grounds, welcoming hosts, great food and a beautiful location. It proved to be the perfect home base for exploring the surrounding countryside and Charlottesville.
A delightful experience, as always!
My husband and I have been long time fans of the Mark-Addy Inn, and our latest trip was as phenomenal as usual! The innkeeper, John Maddox, and his staff go out of their way to make guests feel welcome; the setting is lovely, inside and out.
We've introduced many of our friends to the Inn, and they've all loved it as much as we do. We sincerely hope you'll find an opportunity to stay there.
Let me first say that my husband and I have found the innkeepers at the Mark Addy to be some of the warmest and most gracious and welcoming we've met. (Since we've stayed in 75 B&Bs, that's pretty good.) They are attentive and friendly and genuinely interested, and still know when to tactfully withdraw, which is a rare talent. (Well, that and slightly warped - we do enjoy a good sense of humor.)
My husband and I stayed at the Mark Addy half a dozen times in 2004-2005. The Inn was a very convenient place for us to stay when visiting our new home construction site in Wintergreen. From the moment I first arrived at the inn I knew we had discovered a real jewel in the Blue Ridge. The inn's setting is marvelous, with fantastic mountain views from the charming front porch and many of the rooms. The decor is delightful, somehow achieving a sense of cosiness in the midst of beautiful, priceless antiques. The breakfasts are outstanding, far superior to the fare at any other B&B where we have stayed. Most importantly, we were always treated with great hospitality and professionalism at the Mark Addy by the owner and his staff. I can honestly say that I recommend the Mark Addy without reservation.
Unfortunately, we found our experience at the Mark Addy Inn to be unsettling. On one hand, the grounds and the room was very nice, and it was convenient for my girlfriend and I to stay there for our visit, but from the very first phone call to make reservations, we found the owners to be lacking in hospitality. We never felt quite welcome, and often received a much warmer reception and camaraderie from the guests than we did the Mark Addy owners, which was a little disturbing. We are still not exactly sure why this was, but we did attempt to show them every kindness and respect while we were there, so their behavior was quite mystifying to us.
The Perfect Weekend Get-Away
What a great spot this is! We stayed here after driving down skyline drive. This fabulous spot is located right at the gate to Wintergreen, but it is an upscale elegant Inn. Fabulously restored. Excellent service and close to everything you could possibly want in Charlottesville, staunton and Waynesboro. We golfed, rode horses and went wine-hopping. We will definitely be back for the fall foliage and ski season.
A Gem in the Mountains
We stayed here during the autumn and found this Inn to be quite romantic and charming. The Inn is decorated in beautiful French and English antiques. The Inn Keeper is quite knowledgable on local atractions, such as antiquing and local wineries. The rooms are beautiful and our bed was quite confortable. The food was excellent and served on china. I have heard this Inn is for sale so there will be knew management coming and there is no longer dinner being served, so this is dissapointing. We tried to go back this year but our favorite room was booked for months. We recommend the Mark Addy!
