In our previous post, we featured three great places you could visit while on your Nelson 151 weekend getaway. However, if you’re planning for a long weekend and want to fill it with fun and adventure, then three stops will probably not be enough. Here are three more places you should consider visiting while you’re in the area:
Bold Rock Hard Cider
Virginia is not just known for its rich wines and beers; it also has some of the best ciders in the country. And Bold Rock Hard Cider is the perfect place to get them. Stop by the Nellysford Cidery, or the ‘Chapel of Apple’ for some great drinks and food as you learn a few things about the little-known cider craft. Here’s what one visitor had to say about it:
Been wanting to go here FOREVER! Huge Cider fan, drove an hour so from Richmond to check this place out. Super impressed, staff was great, ciders were on point! Even had these “drier” than normal versions that I’ve never seen before. They were amazing! My favorite was the IPA Cider, knocked my socks off. Being right at the base of Blue Ridge Mountains, on a GORGEOUS October fall day, with some amazing cider and atmosphere, it was a fantastic experience! Check out the review on Google Maps…
Ridgeside Bed and Breakfast
Dubbed ‘the doorstep to the outdoors’, Ridgeside Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place if all you want is a change of scenery that includes lots of fresh air, as you take in and become part of the beauty of nature. If you love the outdoors, then you’ll be happy to know that you already have something in common with your innkeepers, and they’re ready to share their beautiful surroundings with you.
I was fortunate to spend the weekend at Ridgeside while attending a family wedding. It is in a quiet valley surrounded by mountains. Really quiet. No cars, planes, background radio, TV, or music. Just cicadas, crickets, and birds. The night sky has thousands more stars than in Washington or New York. Guests can hike up the mountains without even taking out their cars. Read more at E21…
Located in the heart of Central Virginia, the Wintergreen Resort offers just about everything you need for the perfect vacation – awesome accommodation, great food, a host of fun activities, unlimited natural beauty and outdoor recreation. This is the perfect place to go if all you need is a weekend of pampering to get your productive juices flowing again. It’s equally perfect if all you want to do is get out on the slopes for some skiing.
Wintergreen Resort was able to open up a week early because of mother nature…and they were measuring their snowfall in feet!
“We’ve been able to get open a little earlier this year,” said Zach Marlowe, the Director of Ski Operations. “The cold weather has been beautiful for us.” Read more at WSET…
One major advantage of making Route 151 your weekend getaway destination is that there is a lot more going on here than you have enough time for. That means whether you decide to spend your nights in the same resort or B&B, or if you choose to go for a different accommodation each night, you’ll always be close to where the action is.
