Really enjoyed our stay. Picked it because it was out of town. Hostess was perfect, breakfasts were great, our room and the inn and the view were beautiful. Also enjoyed Luray Caverns and the Skyline Drive.

My wife and I stole a weekend away leaving the kids with the Grandparents for our five year anniversary. The landscape, the service, the rooms, the entire experience recharged our batteries. We look forward to coming back again and again.

A great getaway in a beautul mountain setting. The house is just as you see it in the web site. We stayed in the Queen's suite for our honeymoon vacation. The amenities that the innkeeper had set up for us were top rate. The breakfasts that were made each morning were fabulous and healthy. The innkeeper is very friendly and... More

We stayed with Christa at Once Upon a Mountain for the weekend and had a wonderful time. We were in the Princess on a Pea suite and found it very comfortable and private...nice direct access to the yard and hot tub. The bed was great and Christa thinks of everything, from chocolates on the pillow to wet wipes in the... More

My husband and I just spent our honeymoon at the beautiful Once upon a Mountain Bed and Breakfast and we could not be more pleased. I for one have very exacting tastes and therefore scoured the internet in search of the perfect place. We wanted a simple intimate wedding and the same was true for our subsequent honeymoon.

First of all, I'd like to apologize to Christie for taking so long to write this review. I promised her I would do so, but life seems to get in the way here in D.C. We arrived late, but she had a sign on the front door for us leading us to our room and our tea was waiting for... More

Once we pulled up to the property we fell in love with it. The views are spectacular, and peace and serenity washed over us instantly. Willie greeted us first, followed by Mr. Mack - the two most gracious four-legged hosts anyone could ask for. Christa made us feel so welcome. This is more than your average B&B - it was... More

Once upon a time there was Once Upon a Mountain, a fairy tale bed and breakfast, with 2 Prince Charmings (Mr. Mack and Willie), a beautiful castle with spectacular views and a fairy godmother who makes all your wishes come true. Yes, you need to pinch yourself when you arrive to make sure it is all real and not a... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find the Once upon a mountain Bed and Breakfast was exactly as it appeared in it's pictures, although the pictures didn't do the view justice. The location was very serene and the owner was a pleasure to talk to. I only wish we had had more time there so we could have tried out the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed over the course of weekend and had an amazing time. The innkeeper was very nice and helpful, and the breakfasts were awesome. She didn't seem to mind that he and I were somewhat anti-social... which can be a bit of a problem at other inns. The veiws were amazing. Just a warning though... you are... More
