For those that just want to relax, enjoy some of the finest wineries in the state or do some antiquing in one of the numerous antique shops. Sparta and surrounding area enjoy some of the finest Bluegrass music in the World with Merlefest happening every year just down the road or every night at the Muddy Creek Café and Music Hall in Sparta. If you must get in your workout head down to the Alleghany Wellness Center in Sparta where $6.00 gets you an all day pass to the state of the art gym and indoor pool. Bring your running shoes and bike and run or bike the Parkway. It's a runners or bikers dream. When your finished with all of that just sit in one of our eight rocking chairs on the huge deck and relax or watch the 55 inch HDTV with cable TV, NETFLIX and Amazon Prime or watch one of the nearly 200 DVD's provided.
