“Like most country inns and bed, breakfasts and dinners, we trade in a change of pace, romance, and exceptional fare,” said John Cowden, who founded and runs Fort Lewis Lodge with wife, Caryl.

John and Caryl came to the plantation first as farmers, but then transformed the property.

“Over the years we’ve come to understand that Fort Lewis has an asset that few others have – our Shenandoah Valley wilderness, the mountains, forests, fields and streams and all the creatures that call this their home.”

Fort Lewis Lodge features the main lodge, in-the-round silo guest rooms, hand-hewn log cabins with stone fireplaces, and the Riverside House.

Throughout the day, guests explore miles of river trout and bass fishing, nearby classic swimming hole, hiking trails, mountain biking and vistas. Evening activities start with a literal dinner bell ringing and are highlighted by farm fresh American style cuisine dinners served family style in the restored 1850s Lewis Gristmill.

Fort Lewis Lodge was named among the 2013 Top 10 Romantic Inns by American Historic Inns, publisher of Bed & Breakfasts Guide Books and iLoveInns.com.

Fort Lewis Lodge is also a Select Registry Distinguished Inn of North America. Select Registry’s independent inspectors evaluate each of the member properties to ensure “your stay will be in a class all its own.”

Of the more than 20,000 inns in North America, only 330 are members of Select Registry.
