We stayed here during the Federal government shutdown-we were originally planning to hike in Shenandoah National Park but it was closed. Happily for us, Hidden Valley is in a beautiful area of the Virginia mountains, and there are hiking trailheads just a couple of minutes from the inn.
The drive up to Hidden Valley from Lexington, VA, and through Highland County over to Staunton, is incredibly scenic.
Pam is very knowledgeable about where to eat, things to see, hiking, etc. The house has been wonderfully restored by Pam and Ron. If you're lucky, you might get some fresh goat milk and housemade goat feta cheese for breakfast!
