What better way to enjoy time with your loved one than a relaxing, romantic getaway in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley!
Begin your romantic retreat with a stop at Muse Vineyards, winner of the 2015 Virginia Governor’s Cup for their 2009 Clio. Next, head to historic downtown Edinburg for a tour of the Shenandoah Valley Cultural Heritage Museum. Step back in time as you explore their treasure trove of collections including three floors of transportation, farm, clothing and textiles, household and business items showing life as it was in the valley. Tour some of the local galleries including Apple Gallery Déjà Vu and The Edinburg Gallery before savoring an authentic Italian dinner at Sal’s Italian Bistro located just up the road. Carmella’s Café offers a wide variety of craft beers for those looking to stay out a little later or settle into one of Shenandoah County’s unique bed & breakfasts for a quieter evening.
The next morning, wake up to enjoy a freshly prepared home made breakfast from Sunrise Cafe. Sunrise cafe offers freshly prepared breakfast scrambles, a variety of pancake flavors, and home-made sourdough bread.
Settle down at the Winery at Kindred Pointe, where you can enjoy wine tastings and a leisurely stroll along their many on-site trails. Outside food is welcome, so feel free to pack a picnic from one of the local cafes of markets. After some relaxation at the vineyard, take a short scenic drive to Meems Bottom Covered Bridge located in Mount Jackson. One of the best-known covered bridges in Virginia, this 204 foot single-span Burr arch truss bridge was originally built in 1894. Enjoy the views and beauty of winter before heading to Spa 122 for some much-deserved pampering. Couples massages, facials and mani-pedis are just a few options to choose from. Following your spa treatment, take a short drive to Strasburg for a nice dinner at Hotel Strasburg, where you can indulge in the culinary skills of their master chef in their Victorian dining room. After dining, explore Strasburg’s many antique shops or drive to Woodstock and enjoy a movie at the Community Theater, a quaint little theater that’s been in operation for over 90 years.
Enjoy freshly prepared brunch and a cup of coffee or a warm panini and a glass of spiced iced tea at the Woodstock Café. On Sunday’s, brunch is accompanied by live music. If heading south, Jackson’s Corner Café in New Market serves their own locally roasted coffee and an assortment of breakfast sandwiches, croissants and other treats. Both Woodstock and New Market also offer a wonderful variety of unique shops throughout the historic downtown districts located along US Route 11. Be inspired by the talent of many local artists at 7 East Gallery in Woodstock or Chickadees Gallery in New Market.
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!
