Excellent - recommend a full kitchen (which was up stairs) if you don't wish to BBQ your meals. We choose the BBQ and let the kids cook. Now that was an experience!

Everthing was great. My wife and I ate breakfast, lunch, and supper there. The sports bar was open, pretty much smoke free, and the service was next to none.

Attraction | "Move Night"

Quote:
Children movies in the lodge with surround sound. Movies were on large screen and all the TVs in the lodge. Meals could be purchased. If you're on a tight budget. Movie night is not only fun, but economical.

Wine and Food

Attraction

Quote:
They have local VA vineyard representing their wine. VA wine is a closely hidden secret. Additionally, they have a beer festival, which we didn't take advantage of. Maybe next time.

Sports Bar

Attraction

Quote:
A night with my daughter who lives in Florida. It was a great time just hanging out and enjoying each other's company. The bar closed a little early, but that was OK because we enjoyed the time together. She enjoyed the escape from her three children.

Attraction | "Music"

We understand they have several music festivals each year. We were there when at the start of their summer season. If the festivals are anything like the resort - they have got to be great.
