Birds & Butterflies

The Mountain Rose Inn is the perfect destination for a bird watching vacation.

With its spacious porches, creek-side hammocks, Adirondack chairs, and benches, there is always a front-row seat at our Virginia bed and breakfast for watching the birds and butterflies as they go about their daily activities. The Inn has many bird feeders, hummingbird sippers, birdhouses, and bathing areas on the property. We enjoy the birds as much as our guests do and encourage birds to feed and live here on the property. They are fascinating creatures and ones that we are always delighted to have as guests!

According to our local ornithology expert, early migrants show up as soon as early March and hummers by early April. The last week in April or the first week of May is the best time to see maximum numbers of spring migrants (warblers, vireos, grosbeaks, thrushes) in this area.

Spring is on the horizon. It's time to watch birds build nests, search for food and raise their young. Come to the Mountain Rose Inn and experience birding in luxury. This package includes:
