Ivy Creek Foundation
Ivy Creek is our closest hiking area, just about 3 miles from the cottage. It's nice - no great vistas but pleasant woods and trails.
Many different trails available, through grassy patches to woods and along lakefronts
Ivy Creek Natural Area is a great place for a walk or hike and just a 15 minute drive away.
“This is our favorite Indian cuisine!! The food is on point. Try the lunch buffet and then you can sample many of their delicious dishes. I absolutely love the cauliflower appetizer dish. This won't disappoint your palate”
“If you love outdoors, hiking, walking, riding a mountain bike, bird watching and more, this is the place for you! Its 22 miles winds its way around the city. You'll have 5 bars on your cell and can exit the trail in many places and be somewhere in Charlottesville. Best to bring your GPS or let me or my husband take you around. Sometimes finding the trailhead can be a challenge but even if you just do a 20 minute "out and back", you'll be sure and LOVE IT!”
“Great hike to to waterfall and swimming hole! Depending upon the season, may have to cross over, wade, through two streams (but there's a couple of small swimming spots to pause at) -- and the waterfall is less impressive during dry times. ”
“You should try a flight of the brewed on site sake, take a tour and EAT! The food is amazing-noodle bowls, curry, tuna, smoked meats-yumm! Don't forget to take your coupon.”
