Meandering, landscaped walkways lead to individually decorated cottages with claw-foot tubs in this resort centered around an Italianate villa in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Rooms and suites are split among other buildings. The upscale Rice House serves prime beef, wild game, and a "rave-worthy lobster bisque" in a former farmhouse whose walls remain pocked with bullet holes from the Civil War. Staff are "neighborly, unassuming, and friendly." The Jim Fazio–designed golf course is "well maintained." An on-site museum features Civil War relics, many found on the grounds.
