A Little Getaway

My husband and I went on a little vacation this week to the beautiful mountains of Bath County, Virginia.   We stayed at Fort Lewis Lodge, an out of the way place that surpassed all expectations for beauty, peace, and gourmet meals.  There are 3200 acres on this property, which has hiking trails, fishing, and swimming spots along the Cowpasture River, or the more sedate pavilion with comfy seating to look out over the valley or to watch the cows grazing.  Rooms are available in a lodge, in a silo, or in log cabins scattered nearby. There is also a Riverside Manor House a mile or so down the road.  In the view from the overlook, you can see red barns in the distance.  Those are across the road from the Manor House, and the best fishing is nearby.  What most people tell you about Fort Lewis Lodge is the amazing food you are served at breakfast and dinner. Caryl is a gourmet cook and her food is the highlight of the day. Anyone who wants to reserve a space at the lodge better think well ahead.  Most people are repeat lodgers, and some have been going there for twenty years.  What a wonderful mid-week retreat we had.By the River

A one-mile hike takes you to this view of the farm with lodging in the foreground.

We sat by a cozy fire after dinner. The air was cool, and the fire was perfect.

    • Thanks, Jim. When you pass by, you are actually quite a few miles away. It’s way back in the mountains, and that is what makes it so special. Such beautiful property, such great food, and peace and quiet.
