Lewis Mountain Cabins
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.
Lewis Mountain Cabins
Lewis Mountain Cabins are historic furnished cabins with private bathrooms, heat, electric lights, towels, linens and an adjacent outdoor pit grill for cooking. The absence of in-room phones and internet access only adds to the total tranquility. Slow down the pace as you cook out on your sheltered outdoor charcoal fire and dine on your own picnic table. The Lewis Mountain cabins sit side-by-side in a wooded area offering the basic creature comforts along with one tent cabin for the rugged hiker seeking shelter for the night. There is a strong emphasis on the protection of wildlife.
The Lewis Mountain Cabins are participating in the Virginia Green challenge to honor the 75th anniversary of the Blue Ridge Parkway and looks forward to celebrating 75 years of Shenandoah National Park in 2011.
