Romantic Getaway Ideas in Virginia

Romantic Getaway Virginia #1:

The Inn at the Hope Springs Farm is just about as romantic a setting as you could want for your Virginia vacation getaway.

Here you have a grand old Louisiana Plantation Style farm house located on Indian Ridge facing Indian Valley. It’s in Floyd County, Virginia. The farm house has been turned into a lovely Bed & Breakfast. It sits on 100 wooded acres with walking trails that you can use to leisurely explore the streams, ponds, pastures, pear trees and White Pine.

You stay in one of the six beautiful suites and have access to the parlor, formal dining room, Tea Room and Library.

One of the fun features of the Inn at the Hope Springs Farm is the farm is used to breed and raise alpacas. The alpacas are raised for their fine fiber and share the farm a few free range chickens, dogs and cats.

A few of the many nearby attractions include Wohlfahrt Haus Dinner Theatre, The June Bug Center (theater, puppetry, music, dance), New River Trail State Park and Château Morrisette Winery.
