The SpaceIn the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we offer privacy, rustic luxury, and an extremely well-equipped kitchen. Bring your groceries and cook to suit yourself! Lots to do on the property, fishing in our little pond or on the James River, rent canoes, hike, come brush our horses, relax, or go sight-seeing. Located in historic Appomattox County, you have the Appomattox Courthouse National Historical Park and the Museum of the Confederacy nearby, as well as other sights of Civil War interest. Baines Books in the Town of Appomattox offers a coffee shop with live music through the weekend. There's lots of antique stores in Appomattox, and a variety of venues for eating out. Nearby Lynchburg offers Amazement Square for the children, and a number of breweries for their parents. The Brew Trail and plenty of wine tasting is in easy reach. Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson's "country retreat" is 40 minutes away. So much to do. Or just do nothing and get away from it all. Come relax with us! Guest AccessOur guests have sole occupancy to our Lodge and full access to our 275 forested acres. We offer canoe rental, day fishing trips, and riverside picnics with privacy. We are unique in our area of Central Virginia, Appomattox County. Interaction with GuestsWe try to revolve our schedules around our guests' needs. Very fun, guided nature hikes are available for a fee, We encourage you to come visit us (we're across the road, a mile from door to door), visit our horses, and call if you need anything, if anything breaks, or if your trash cans are full. Otherwise, we leave you alone from check-in on. You only need to call us when you leave, if you like your privacy. The NeighborhoodOur Lodge and Retreat are located within a bend of the lovely James River. The neighbors are very supportive of and friendly towards the Lodge and our guests. They are always happy to give directions or other information. Although the James River is not visible from the Lodge, the trip to the river, along our forested roads and trails, is beautiful and serene and private. Upon arriving at the river, the scene is astonishing, especially when you realize you have it all to yourself. It's so lovely you will want to stay and stay. Getting AroundMost of our guests drive here, but the Lynchburg Airport is a sweet place to fly into, and we use it regularly. Let us know if you'd like us to pick you up (up to 3 people). Richmond Airport is 2 1/2 hours away, Dulles is 4 hours. The roads in Appomattox County, where we're situated, are well-maintained. If you have an SUV or other car with 4-wheel drive, we would encourage you to bring it for ease of driving our road to the river. We also offer a pickup truck for use on the Retreat property only: $35/day or $100/week. You can pile a gang in it and head down for a day at the river, and not worry about getting it dirty... Other Things to NoteWe love to answer questions. We are a forestry conservation easement for perpetuity, and a Virginia certified Green Lodging facility. When you stay with us, you are literally helping save a forest for the world, as well as having less impact than usual on the environment due to a number of "green" measures we have implemented in the Lodge. You probably won't notice most of them, if any. If you want your kids to learn to fish (or yourself) just ask us.
