• Optional Nights before or after tour, and
• Night 1: Frederick House, Staunton, VA is a short walk from everything in historic downtown Staunton, Virginia, in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Frederick House’s five 19th century residences offer 23 spacious rooms and suites in award winning buildings.
• Night 2: Hampton Inn Col Alto, Lexington, VA. Not a typical Hampton Inn! With all of the conveniences of a typical Hampton, this one is located in downtown Lexington and incorporates a 1827 mansion and its beautiful grounds into the facility. Walking distance to historic downtown shops, restaurants, and museums.
• Nights 3-4: Fort Lewis Lodge, Millboro, VA. Innkeepers John & Caryl Cowden welcome us to their historic farm in remote Bath County, VA. Spacious rooms in the main lodge are furnished in a Shaker-style tradition. An attached glazed-tile silo has been renovated with a spiral staircase leading to three very private bedrooms-in-the-round. There’s even a “lookout” on top for expansive views of rolling meadows and rugged cliffs towering above the river.
