High in the Trees at Sandy River Retreat

We know how it sounds: a log cabin farm stay? Mingling with a few cows and then picking some corn for dinner?
 
Yeah, that's that's what we thought at first, too. And yes, that's all possible, but the Sandy River Retreat (185 Monroe Church Road, Rice, Va.) also includes an aerial adventure park.

 
So after you choose which of the three cozy cabins to stay in, you'll need to formulate your plan for which of the 52 aerial obstacles -- including 13 zip lines -- you'll want to master during your trip.
 
The resort's located near the Sandy River Reservoir, which makes for perfect fishing and boating, but you'll also be near the city of Farmville, where you'll find tiny boutiques and fancy Belgian bakeries.
 
And since this is a real farm stay, you'll also get a flock of sheep, some donkeys and a natural vegetable garden to greet every morning. 
 
You can choose from a one-, two- or three-bedroom rustic log cabin. Each comes fully furnished with a washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen. Prices range from $75 to $225 per night ($490 to $735 per week). You can bring your pet along for an extra fee.
 

Admission to the park is $50 per adult and $40 for children (minimum age: 7).
