Surrounded by the beautiful backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the resort offers cozy accommodations, fine dining, championship golf, a spa, and a variety of outdoor recreation to suit every guest.
Large stone fireplaces, oak-vaulted ceilings, and views of the golf course and mountains can be found within the 102 lodge guestrooms, 32 cottages, and deluxe spa suite. The cottages are nestled back further into the woods, so they’re great for families, business travelers, or individuals wanting a little more privacy during their stay. The Equani Spa suite is an even better way to escape it all with 825 square feet of space with stunning views of the picturesque mountains, green fairways and rolling horse pastures. Included in the resort’s $10 per night fee is unlimited local calls, access to the fitness center, daily newspaper, in-room coffee, wireless Internet, business center access and use of the tennis court and equipment.

The Dining Room is available for an elegant meal by the fire or out on the veranda with the mountains in the distance. They are also known around town for having an impressive Friday Evening Seafood Buffet and Sunday brunch. At the 19th hole is more casual dining at Brassies Grill. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner while guests can play a round of pool, darts or watch a game on the big-screen TV. For a nightcap, head to The Fireside Lounge and adjacent veranda for a cocktail by the warmth of the fire or under the clear night sky.
