Life is good in the Shenandoah Valley. Especially when you’re on a scenic drive, stopping by vineyard after vineyard and soaking in the peace and quiet of idyllic locations, friendly vineyard owners, and glasses full of the fruit of the land.
We’re pleased to be located right in the middle of it all, with wonderful partners north and south. The following are all located within a two hours’ radius of the Inn, and we encourage you to check out our Wine Trail Package to get the full flavor of this rich experience.
