The Grounds

Two stories of verandas wrap three sides of the house offering guests plenty of seating to relax, view the gardens and birds while listening to the babbling stream nearby.

Enjoy over 1 1/2 acres of landscaped grounds and gardens surrounding the inn, offering a peaceful getaway and the chance for a quiet stroll among the trees and flowers, many native to Virginia. Perhaps a game of croquet; we often play croquet in our side yard or back yard by the old livery stable. A wide trout stream flows behind the property, just beyond our historic 1875 barn. Relax on the covered deck and watch the stream flow past below. Fishermen might want to drop a line and test their luck. On cool evenings, light a fire at the covered deck and listen to the gentle sounds of Mill Creek or enjoy a bonfire under the vast starry sky.

For hikers and kayakers, nearby Goshen Pass is a veritable vacation paradise, with dozens of miles of hiking trails and one of VA’s most challenging rivers. Country drives, mountains and lakes, the Shenandoah Valley at its best, small historic towns, the local vineyards and breweries – you’re going to need more than a day or two to explore this part of Virginia! Our collection of maps and written directions will help you plan the perfect day.
