Millboro, Va. (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Fort Lewis Lodge is pleased to announce it was named by Virginia Living magazine as one of the most welcoming bed and breakfasts in the state.
“When you come to Fort Lewis Lodge, you settle in and truly make the surrounding Shenandoah Valley wilderness your home,” said Fort Lewis Lodge Innkeeper John Cowden, who founded and runs the country bed and breakfast with wife, Caryl Cowden.
“Take a bike for a ride. Hike. Jump in the swimming hole. Go fishing. Listen out for the dinner bell we still ring to welcome everyone to the table. To be recognized for creating that welcoming atmosphere by our guests and friends is an honor.”
More than 25,000 people voted in the 2013 Best of Virginia survey in January, according to Virginia Living. Categories included most welcoming bed and breakfast, best movie theatre, best museum and more. The results are divided into regions across the state and published in May 2013 in the annual Best of Virginia special edition.
The Fort Lewis Lodge is a bed, breakfast and dinner inn that sits at the foot of the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia. The 3,200-acre plantation is filled with natural beauty from the moment the property opens to guests in April to when it closes for the season in November.
Fort Lewis Lodge features the main lodge, in-the-round silo guest rooms, hand-hewn log cabins with stone fireplaces, and the Riverside House. Evenings are highlighted by contemporary American-style cuisine served in the historic Lewis Gristmill, also known as Caryl’s kitchen because she cooks and helps serve all the meals.
John and Caryl Cowden pride themselves on creating what they call a rare combination of unpretentious elegance. Earlier this year, 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.
