Hot Air Ballooning, Inside-Out

Hot Air Ballooning, Inside-Out

If you have gone Hot Air Ballooning over Charlottesville countryside in Central Virginia you might recognize this picture.  It is looking inside the balloon, viewed from the balloon basket.  Cedar Spring Inn can’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate a special event or milestone than by floating with the morning mist over field and stream.  Charlottesville has some extremely skilled Hot Air Ballooners who will make your ride lots of fun and very safe.  Just this month we had guests celebrating anniversaries from four years to fifty years, as well as birthday celebrations and bucket list events.

Make Cedar Spring Inn your headquarters for your Hot Air Balloon adventure.  Your departure location will depend on the weather and which balloons are going up that day.  Time in the air varies, but allow about three hours from start to finish.  The most reliable time to schedule your ride is in the morning, since weather often scuttles afternoon flights especially in the summer. This does mean getting up before dawn.  But remember you can return to Cedar Spring Inn, have breakfast, then nap to make up for lost sleep.  As a guest this past weekend testified, even if you are afraid of heights you will be glad you tried Hot Air Ballooning!

At Cedar Spring Inn we serve your breakfast whenever you return from your balloon adventure. Through early October the pool is always ready (water heated) for an after-balloon swim!  And then there is the always-special occasion when we see balloons flying our way … as many as four at a time.  This makes for great photo ops of balloons with mountains behind without ever leaving Cedar Spring Inn.
