Hot Air Ballooning

Since 1974 Rick has logged over 5,000 hours in a hot air balloon and flown 20,000 passengers. Imagine the possibilities for marriage proposals, birthdays and anniversaries, or to simply surprise family and friends. Balloons embark right from our front lawn, with a nine-story tower of color filling the sky.

Your one hour of tranquil airborne time reveals brilliant views of the rolling landscape, historic estates and rivers meandering through Piedmont farmland.

Combine beautiful ballooning and four diamond dining with our Bed, Breakfast and Balloon Package. Call 800.476.1988 for details.
