Etlan lodge description

Elegant, country escape overlooking the Shenandoah Valley in the Blue Ridge Mts. of VA, just off 231, one of America's ten most outstanding scenic byways(Great for biking). Our 60 private acres backs up to the Shenandoah National Park & Old Rag Mt., which offers many scenic hiking trials and activities plus we have our own private hiking trials on our property. After hiking, soak in our 7 person hot tub with recliner & enjoy the quiet serenity of the country.

View the wildlife or the spectacular star-studded sky. Watch the moon rise or take a drive on Skyline Drive. We have a stocked pond for catch & release & there's trout fishing close by. Pop some popcorn in our theater sized electric popper & watch your favorite movie on our large HDTV screen.
There's a 52'HDTV upstairs. Take along your choice drink from the downstairs bar & play a game of shuffleboard on our 9' table or go up to cocktail hill to enjoy the sunset. Don't forget the nibbles to put on the picnic table or inside the pergola. Visit the many wineries, Luray caverns, historic Monticello & Montpelier, UVA in Charlottsville, civil war sites, golf, horseback ride, antique shops, art galleries. Ski at Massanutten, 1 hour away, or enjoy their go carts, golf, bowling, or huge water park. Try fishing in our catch & release pond.

A massage therapist will come to the lodge for your spa needs. There are many organic farms and farmer's markets nearby. Pasture fed beef can be found at Rider's Backfield farm just around the corner. There are many scheduled events, festivals, & activities through out the year. There are world class (Inn of Little Washington) to down home restaurants within 1-25 miles. The lodge is ideal for family gatherings, corporate retreats, reunions, birthdays, girls/guys weekends & theme weekends: cooking, painting, photography, birding nature & much more.

There's a playhouse for the smaller ones which you can watch from the expansive front deck. So come & enjoy. You won't want to leave. MEMORIES ARE MADE HERE!!
