Beautiful location near a small community in Virginia. Nice room and the bathroom was well. I did not try their restaurant but I walked around their facility and it appears to be very nice. I walked to the horse barns to see what type riding horses they had. They all looked very well. Attached to Shenandoah mountains which is beautiful at any time of the year. The room was a little noisy I was on the first floor. I had a bit of a weight to checkin and they had no valet parking or bell staff there.

Great place, lots to do. Check in took over 20 minutes but still wonderful stay overall. The cabin was clean and the beds were comfortable. Didnt eat any food but the menu was expensive. The grounds were clean and the lake was beautiful
