The hostess could not have been more accommodating! She went out of her way to ensure we had a pleasant time at her B&B. The view, amenities, breakfast, etc. were all fantastic! We would stay again for sure.

We've been coming to Once Upon a Mountain for the past 11 years and it's always something to look forward to. Christa is so fantastic, welcoming, and generous. We love coming for hikes, solitude, catching up with Christa over wine, and recharging from the city....More
