Shenandoah County is the perfect destination for those traveling with pets.
Here in Shenandoah County, we understand that bringing your furry friend along is sometimes preferred, so we have just the weekend for you and loyal companion to enjoy together. We welcome you to the charming town of Woodstock, where the Comfort Inn happily accommodates both two and four footed guests. Grab the leash, and toy of choice and celebrate the sunshine and mountain air as you either walk or drive to W.O. Riley Park just north of the hotel. The newly renovated park features beautiful walking paths fit for a picnic to end your evening before venturing back to your hotel room. Or take your pick of hikes throughout the George Washington National Forest for your best friend to explore. Buzzzard Rock, Kepler Overlook, and Crisman Hollow Trails all over spectacular views of the valley.
Begin your morning by enjoying the complimentary breakfast at the hotel, and maybe sneaking back a sausage or two for your pet patiently waiting for your return. Then it’s time to venture out and visit the family and pet friendly Strasburg Town Park. After playing and walking around the park, stroll over to the easily accessible Shenandoah River where you can dip your foot, or paw, to cool down while enjoying the beautiful sounds and sights. Head back to Route 11, and to the lovely North Mountain Vineyard and Winery where the rolling hills of grapevines presents you with your own private getaway. They love allowing your four-legged friend accompany you as you enjoy their red, white, and blush wines. Meet not only the friendly owners, but meet their wandering pets as well. If you guys aren’t tuckered out yet, consider heading to Cristina’s Café to explore their menu, full of farm to table items, as some are from their own farm at that. The outdoor seating area is perfect to relish the company of your pet, not to mention the live entertainment that is often featured on the weekends.
Don’t fill up too much before checking out of the hotel, because downtown Woodstock is calling your name. Many shops offer water dishes outside for thirsty pooches. Walk the beautifully landscaped sidewalk as you pass by churches, family-owned shops, and the Historic Court House that is a standing piece of history, built in 1795. Make sure you stop in All Things Virginia @ The Farmhouse, a shop full of items of all kind varying from wines from regional favorites, homemade trinkets, handmade jewelry, and home baked pet treats that are all the rage between furry friends. After making your rounds, stop by the Woodstock Café and Shoppes to enjoy more outside seating as you try any of their menu items, for they are all sure to please. The café is a local and widely recognized favorite that features sandwiches galore, salads, soups, Route 11 potato chips, and home baked goodies. As badly as we know you and your furry friend don’t want to leave, it will be time to return home, but not before you grab a cup of coffee to go and a few more smiles from the locals.
The best way to experience an area is to do as the locals do and what better way to discover the local flair of Shenandoah County than by experiencing many of our unique finds and local flavors!
