This is our third time here at Lydia and it has now become almost a tradition. This time around, we stayed for 2 nights unlike the earlier visits, and enjoyed every moment of it. They have simplified the check-in process so that now you no longer have to go up to the little country store up ahead but can directly go up to your cabin. All the cabins we've stayed in have been clean, thoughtfully equipped and comfortably furnished. We did have a little trouble once with the movie player, but a call to the maintenance folks was quickly attended to. Whether you are curling up before a crackling fire with a chilled glass of wine or sitting back in the hot tub or exploring the winding trails during the day or gazing up at the sparkling night sky, this place has all that it takes to transport you to a blissful world away from it all.
Though we thoroughly recommend just taking it easy up in the cabin and surroundings, one could always take a winery tour at a couple of vineyards not far away. Stanardsville, the nearest town does not offer too much by way of activities, but we enjoyed driving around the nearby areas and exploring the parks and woods to catch sight of the local birds. And if you are staying longer, Charlottesville isn't that far off.
Next time, we plan to visit during Fall.More
