Blue Ridge Getaway
Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
Blue Ridge Getaway
The Blue Ridge Getaway is perched high atop the Blue Ridge Mountains in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. The brand new cabin has three bedrooms and two and a half baths, and it is located less than 100 yards from the Shenandoah National Park.
