An iconic part of the American landscape, the Blue Ridge Mountains have been immortalized in popular culture too, like in John Denver's wildly popular song, 'Take Me Home, Country Road Roads'. The peaks owe their particular blueness to the isoprene released by trees into the atmosphere. No doubt, this has fascinated visitors since the beginning of time. Come and enjoy your vacation in a Blue Ridge-style mountain cottage with a view of some of America's most magnificent landscapes.
