Our favorite places to stay in Virginia

We're adding new ones all the time!

'Wine down' hour on the porch of a Victorian B & B after a kayak trip to a barrier island. A couples massage at a mountaintop spa follows a weekend of rigorous backpacking. A four course gourmet breakfast fuels a biking tour of area wineries.

We have to confess: while we usually travel by tent, we often enjoy a little pampering with our outdoor adventures. Who doesn't?

Here's a sampling of some of our favorite places to unwind, romance and relax. Each is linked to a great hike, paddle or bike trip nearby.
