Horseback Riding Adventure on the James!
Stay 2 nights, and we will schedule a private, guided horseback ride on a beautiful 1400 acre farm, just a few miles away on the banks of the James River. Miles of trails, wonderful horses - perfect for a novice rider or an experienced one. You'll spend an afternoon on horseback, we'll pack a picnic lunch, and then when you return to the inn - relax those well-worn muscles with a 30-minute massage for each of you! Dinner isn't far off, you'll head just 1/2 mile away to The Smokehouse Grille. Great food, with plenty of vegan & vegetarian options in addition to some great local meat & fish choices. Scrumptious desserts, too!
***This trip can be customized - looking for a lesson? want to ride in a vineyard? Let us know - we can arrange for just about anything! $375-475 per couple (depending on weekday or weekend), added to any room rate. Have fun!
Canoeing or Tubing on the James River
Summer and lazy rivers go hand in hand...and boy do we have a river for you! The James River is just 1/2 mile away...and so are two fantastic river outfitters. Book two nights with us, and we'll get you a canoe (or tubes if you REALLY want to float!) for two to spend the day on our gorgeous river. The perfect trip for beginners - you'll be driven to the spot you'll launch from. Float and paddle your way down to Scott's Landing...enjoy our picnic lunch along the way. Relax and tell river tales at the James River brewery, and enjoy a complimentary beer tasting, then head up the block to The Smokehouse Grille for dinner. Local, farm-to-table dining - always with vegan and vegetarian selections. Yummy desserts too! $250-$300 per couple, (price depends on midweek or weekend), added to the rate of any room.
