This is a lovely spot on the Blue Ridge Parkway but gets very busy - if you want uncrowded pictures you probably need to be early or late to beat the crowds! Very popular cafe but again you need to be there early if you want to get in

Stopped in while enroute to Lynchburg with an out of town visitor. Really enjoyed touring the area and especially seeing the way in which a multitude of functions could be ran from one water wheel. Because it was a weekday this visit there were minimal volunteers on hand but having been here before, in season, when the volunteers are here... More

It was off season, but the views were nice and the areas were clean and paths open for walking. We hiked some and took pictures.

This was a very nest place to stop at while driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. We walked the small .5 trail and learned about some history. Very picturesque stop. There is a restaurant and gift store but they were closed.

This is a must stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We have visited many times over the years. It is one of the top photographed places on the Parkway. It is a beautiful setting. During the summer there are exhibits going. The restaurant serves good food and offers breakfast all day long including their buckwheat pancakes. They have some parking... More

We stayed at the Woodberry Inn, just two miles from the Mabry Mill while we were in town for the NASCAR races of Martinsville. The inn keeper told us that we should drive down and visit the mill, since we had never visited the area and were so close to it. I have heard that it is one of the... More

Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway for the fall colors. Past their peak, but still a very picturesque drive. The mill and restaurant closes tomorrow, for the season, so make plans for next year. The history of a bygone era and the views are a MUST.
