Virginia Green

Mountain Song Inn
Willis, VA


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.

Mountain Song Inn

We are a bed and breakfast, with 3 guest rooms. We also like to use as many local products as possible.

Being Green: It is the right thing to do.

Floyd County is very much a sustainable community and we do our part to purchase locally.
