If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a chance to see the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains in person must be worth a million. This week's Escape will take you to the postcard-worthy Fairview Bed & Breakfast Estate in Amherst, Virginia.

Bring a loved one for a two-night stay, Sundays through Thursdays ($265) or Fridays and Saturdays ($349), in one of the tasteful guest rooms in the main house. When you arrive, you'll be greeted by fresh flowers in your room and homemade sugarplum truffles on your pillow.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Buildings, the 1867 Italianate-style stunner boasts a bucolic wraparound veranda complete with vintage rocking chairs and awe-inspiring vistas. Drink in the bright kaleidoscope of colors, from the fiery mountainsides to the vermillion pastures.

Frame your day with a signature gourmet breakfast, then set out to explore the picturesque natural surroundings. Nearby Crabtree Falls—with its series of cascades, hiking trails, and scenic overlooks—is the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi. If you'd prefer to compose a more relaxing day, enjoy two included 30-minute massages, or add some contrast with a visit to one of more than 15 local wineries.

Weekend guests will delight in one included multi-course dinner for two prepared by Fairview's gourmet chef. Beyond the property, the Amherst area boasts an impressive portfolio of dining options. Devil's Backbone, Champion Brewery in the 2010 World Beer Cup, serves craft brews and excellent food like pulled pork and shaved brisket.

Think of the Blue Ridge Mountains as a snapshot of paradise. This week's Escape has no negatives, so capture it before it's gone in a flash.

  • "Words cannot describe the feeling of walking into Fairview... My husband and I woke to the sunrise and watched shadows stretch over the Blue Ridge Mountains. The view from the porch—and every window in the house—made me blissfully happy."
