We stayed here to attend a choir concert, at a local venue, for high school students chosen throughout the state of Virginia. Exceptional staff, comfortable rooms, beautiful scenery and good location. I will stay here again, if I'm in the area.

This is a beautiful, well-maintained and friendly venue. The on-site restaurant featured a scrumptious buffet and the wait staff were friendly and attentive. A great example of southern hospitality and a welcome change for this visitor. A must see, if in the area.More
