    Default Three Springs Hostel is closed

    Would anybody know why the Three Springs Hostel in Buena Vista, VA is closed? Everybody who stayed there has nothing but good things to say about their stay. Also, there's an article about this hostel on WhiteBlaze, but i was denied access to it, don't know why.

    I'm planning a section hike this summer from Front Royal to Damascus, and it seemed to be a great place to stay. I have the ATC Thru-hikers's companion from 2015, and it is listed there, so it must have closed quit recently. Just curious to know what happened.

    Could be closed for many different reasons. Most close due to not making money.

    Their Facebook Page states they will be no longer providing hiker services as of this year. They will be just concentrating just on their farm.

    yes...mystery solved. Forgot to check Facebook. Wish them success with their farm. Maybe they will re-open in the future.
