Our humble Puppy Pad has been updated and we have come up with a new name, The Dogwood Suite! You will notice the new hardwood floors in the bedroom, new furniture in the sitting area including two big soft chairs, a loveseat sofabed, large coffee table, and a television. The kitchen area now has it's own little sitting area in addition to the kitchen table. We are excited about these changes and updates! Check it out.
I was recently fortunate to meet with one of Charlottesville's most knowledgeable naturalists and hiking guides, Melanie Perl.
With an early winter blast coming through Virginia, we have the fireplace in the Great Room all fired up for our guests! I imagine we'll be tossing logs on all weekend. This year we are working on a new dining room configuration that will encourage our guests to enjoy the large window looking out over pasture and the fireplace during breakfast.
Now that the busy Fall season is winding down, we hope you will come join us by this cozy fire this Winter. We are open throughout the Holidays and beyond!
Just across the road from The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm flows the Moormans River, a picturesque mountain stream with tumbling rapids and still pools. The river runs down out of The Shenandoah National Park before joining the Mechums River to form the south fork of the Rivanna River. The best fishing seasons are around April and October, or whenever there has been adequate rainfall and the trees are relatively dormant, so that the cold spring water is flowing nicely in the river.
After a very busy weekend, and with no guests staying on a Sunday night, I decided to do something we almost never get a chance to do... lock the doors, turn out the lights, and head out to enjoy some of the fun things we are always recommending to our guests! We ended up spending most of the afternoon at Mountfair Vineyards, where they were hosting their Corks & Chords event. Several acoustic guitar singer/songwriters took their turn on stage as the rest of us sat back and enjoyed the music with our bottles of wine. It was a supremely enjoyable time!
