“Changes at Meadow Lane”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I have been going to Meadow Lane Lodge for a fishing trip every year for at least six years. This year they turned over management of their property to Natural Retreats who have increased prices by quite a bit for rooms. They have also instituted a rod fee for fishing. Fishing used to be free for guests. This makes a fishing trip quite a bit more expensive than it used to be. As with any change there were some challenges. The web site was difficult to navigate. However, once I got in touch with someone on the phone all questions were answered and they were very helpful. The fishing was good once again. They do a good job managing the river and restricting the number of people. The river manager/guide was very helpful. Overall I enjoyed the experience once again.

We, too, had the Trail View cabin. I agree with another review that "cabin" doesn't exactly describe this gorgeous place. It has rustic elements -- log structure, fireplace, front porch -- but it is beautiful, well equiped and nicely furnished. I loved it!

My husband I am rented the Shepards Cottage for a relaxing weekend! It was absolutely fantastic! The cabin was beautiful and the staff (Tiffany and Chris) were extremely helpful and accomodating! We liked it so much that we brought the kids with us the next go around. The fireplace is amazing and we have nothing but wonderful things to say!!!!!!

My sisters and I rented a 'cabin', Trail View, for a girls' week of relaxing and poking around Bath and surrounding counties. Cabin is a loose term - it was an amazing house that was cosy and super spacious all at the same time; it oozed comfort and simple elegance in a beautiful setting. All you have to do is show up; everything is there. A most delightful surprise was the level of care and interest we received from Tiffany and William - whatever support we needed to arrive and settle in was given, all 'local' questions were answered and, as well, we were inspired to new destinations. We hiked early mornings along the various trails of the Preserve to the Homestead and Starbucks (about 30-40 minutes one way depending on the trail), encountering wildlife along the way. We enjoyed Goshen, Douthat, and lovely nearby Hidden Valley hikes; day trips to Lexington and a horse show at the Va Horse Center, up and over the mountain to Clifton Forge, and the Greenbrier (WVa) bike trail. We indulged at the Warm Spirit Spa (a must to start your week) and the Jefferson Pool (a must to end your week). We ate so well in the area. We built a fire most nights, gazed at the stars (one just forgets). Personally, I absolutely loved the 'off' season, between fall colors and winter snow. It was luxurious, quiet, uncomplicated, peaceful, restorative.
