In memory of Doris DeLane Hubbard who was as much a part of Ridgetop as the mountain itself...
22 January 1920 - 30 January 2005
Excitement is stirring, we can't wait
Plans are made and the car is packed
We are going to Ridgetop!
We reach the Blue Ridge Pkwy - finally!
That means one thing; we are only a few miles
From Milepost 342 and Ridgetop!
The journey begins down a country lane
Fording the creek
Make a left, when you reach the pines -
You are at Ridgetop!
Settle in your cabin
Light the fire for the night
Enjoy a glass of wine
Quiet is the world at Ridgetop!
Rise early and hike the Crabtree Falls nearby
Visit the shops & eateries at Little Switzerland
Drive the Blue Ridge Pkwy
You can't wait to get back to Ridgetop!
Bringing families and friends closer together
Sharing time without TV, radio, phones & emails
Bring your board games and a set of cards
Get away from it all at Ridgetop!
Watch the sunset, it's simply breath taking
*Count the valley 'nightlights'
The stars and moon are close enough to touch
Everything is serene at Ridgetop!
It's a time of reflection as it's your last day here
Walk down by the pond, feed the fish
See the deer, wild turkeys and hummingbirds
Everyone finds a 'home' at Ridgetop!
Winter or Fall all the different seasons
Crisp air, blue skies
Everything is just better at Ridgetop!
*Mrs. Hubbard said when you first got to the mountain, only 12 lights could be viewed in the valley (now there's twice as many)!
Thank you so much - Mr. & Mrs. Hubbard and the Hubbard family
For providing us a haven from the hectic world
Mrs. Hubbard and I enjoyed several glasses of wine and some great conversations over the last several years.
She will be truly missed.
