'Tis distance lends enchantment to the view,
And robes the mountain in its azure hue.
There is no shortage of breathtaking views here at Barren Ridge. From the patio, you can see west towards West Virginia and the Alleghany mountains. In the foreground stand "The Sisters" Betsy Bell and Mary Grey. Behind them stands Little North Mountain, North Mountain, and Elliot's knob the 7th highest peak in Virginia. To the north lies the 10th highest peak in Virginia Reddish Knob. We are within a half-hour drive of three national forests: The Shenandoah National Park and its famous Skyline Drive to the east, the George Washington National Forest to the east and west, and the Jefferson National Forest to the south. If you are a nature lover you are in one of the best spots in the world to explore.
