A quaint Victorian Inn makes for a good base point in Damascus. The Lazy Fox Inn is owned & operated by the charming Miss Ginny, a 90+ year old who along with her helper creates a true country breakfast spread every morning; gravy, biscuits, bacon, sausage, casseroles, fruit, etc. The downstairs queen has it's own bath and the three bedrooms...

the title should say it all. I don't know of any place outside of my hometown town that I've visited three times in one year- and all because of the lazy fox inn. yes, Damascus is a sleepy, little trail town that graciously caters to all of the visitors of the beautiful AT & creeper trail- but it's Ms. Ginny...

Miss Ginny and her family certainly know how to make folks feel welcome! Everything about this place makes you feel comfortable. They've got lots of great outdoor seating on the front porch, back porch, hammocks that overlook babbling Laurel Creek in the backyard. It's nicely located just off the main road in smalltown Damascus, and is situated two blocks from... More

This 100+ year old home was perfect for our girls' getaway. We stayed in a room with 2 beds, but had to use the communal, top floor, bathroom. Normally, that would make me feel uncomfortable, but this bathroom was very clean and the whole stay felt like being at Grandma's house! Miss Ginny cooked a delicious breakfast and even commented...

This really is a taste of the South. Miss Ginny is a gracious and lovely host. Her house is wonderful inside and out- there are hammocks and swing chairs by the river. The rooms are chintzy and comfortable. But the best thing is you get to have her breakfast. Miss Ginny gets up at 5am to start preparing the feast... More

There is no better place to stay to rest up and fuel up for the Virginia Creeper bike trail. We found the Lazy Fox Inn to be inviting, cozy and very homey. Miss Ginny has stories to share and is the epitome of southern hospitality. We stayed in the downstairs room where we had a private bath with a claw... More
