Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Fenton Inn combines the charms of Bavarian village life with a rustic Virginia setting.
One of the best things about a trip to the mountains is getting away from it all. Unplugging and finding the fun in nature is easy to do at the picturesque Fenton Inn. Set among the cobblestone streets of the mountainside property are a bakery, a theater, a gym, and a gift shop, as well as the inn itself.
Just think: this could be the view from your balcony. Can you imagine relaxing out here with a glass of wine and a good book?
Nature lovers will enjoy the proximity to the Appalachian Trail. From the inn, you're perfectly situated for an early start and incomparable sunrise hikes.
If wine tastings are more your speed, the inn is surrounded by local breweries, wineries, cideries, and distilleries. You could also drive into Charlottesville and explore the antique shops and restaurants. Finish off the day with a relaxing massage or a soak in the hot tub. Bliss!
You can book time in the theater to watch a movie or even bring along a gaming console to keep the kids happy.
However you spend your time, make sure to explore the grounds of the inn. The majority of the intricate woodwork was done by hand, and there are little details to find everywhere.
Before you leave, savor one last generous breakfast. Breads, pastries, omelets, and waffles are just the thing to send you off with a full belly and memories of your time in the mountains.
