4 Ways to Celebrate Spring with InnVirginia

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

I think it’s safe to say that we’re all very tired of this frigid winter weather, but luckily for all of us, spring is only a few weeks away. As we watch the snow fall and wait for it to melt, we can dream of all of the ways that we’ll enjoy the warmer springtime weather. Here are four of our favorite ways to celebrate spring at a Virginia B&B:

  1. Bird Watching: You may be an experienced avian observer, or perhaps you’re a recent watcher. Whatever the case, Virginia has some extraordinary birds. From cardinals to chickadees to hummingbirds to hawks, many of our feathered friends begin to re-emerge as spring does. Observe and enjoy the sights and sounds of Virginia’s birds with a Bird Watching Travel Package with Mountain Rose Inn . You package includes a three-night stay, a welcome basket, picnic lunches, and various birding destinations.
  2. Horseback Riding: What better way is there to explore springtime in Virginia than by horseback? With Belle Hearth B&B’s Stay & Ride package, you’ll enjoy a two-night getaway, a peaceful and picturesque trail ride through Shenandoah National Forest, and a delicious saddlebag lunch.
  3. Golfing: Warm weather, beautiful greens, and relaxing scenery…you can’t go wrong with a Virginia gold course, especially when it’s part of a B&B package. Whether you’re indulging in a Hole in One Gold Escape with Stonewall Jackson B&B, a Golf Vacation Package with Mayhurst Inn, or a Golf, Wine & Whine special with Prospect Hill Plantation, you’ll definitely be enjoying your golfers’ getaway.
  4. Fishing: Picture yourself relaxing on the shores of a Virginia river, the waters moving gently at your feet, and a fishing pole grasped firmly in hand. A number of our B&Bs offer Fishing Packages for all of you anglers out there. Enjoy a Fishing Frenzy at Corner Stone Farm with a stocked fishing pond available to their B&B guest. Try your hand at fly fishing with The Collins House Inn or A B&B at Llewlelyn Lodge. And you won’t want to miss out on the Virginia Fly Fishing Festival on April 11-12 in Waynesboro, VA!

“Spring” into Gardening

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

After a long, dreary winter, Virginia is finally seeing the first signs of spring and looking forward to a rebirth of the natural world. One particular Bed & Breakfast that exemplify the cultivation of nature is Newport House:

Newport House B&B is a historically-authentic Williamsburg inn owned and run by John and Cathy Millar. While the inn itself is magnificent, the nature that it fosters is spectacular as well—vibrant flowers, lush greenery, and the ever-attending honeybees.  The gardens are a renowned part of Newport House and they were even featured in the 2013 Annual Historic Garden Week of Virginia tour: “The Garden Club particularly liked the variety of instructive opportunities offered here by flower beds, an historic herb garden, plantings of both native and exotic trees and shrubs, the shade garden, the greenhouse, the beehive, the ‘square-foot’ vegetable garden, and the compost system” (Newport House). Watch springtime come alive among the flowers and honeybees of Newport House.
