"Only thing in the woods that talks back to you. Maybe that's why I can't leave them alone."

Naturalist, Frank Berry, while researching wild turkeys at Fort Lewis


" It's my Shangri-la, a unique place that I recommend enthusiastically. My dictionary defines Shangri-la as a remote, idyllic hideaway where life approaches perfection. For me, that's Fort Lewis Lodge."

One of Virginia's most beautiful rivers is the Cowpasture.  The Lodge has a real "swimming hole" to romp in.  The five foot deep pool makes it a family favorite and there's a steady supply of skipping stones to bounce across the calm surface.  Float downstream in an inner-tube, or just dangle your feet from our deck and breath the clean mountain air.

The Lodge's Pavilion and inventory of catering equipment cover all your rental needs. Traditional or unconventional... we're ready to go with lodging accommodations for up to 50 and receptions up to 100.

Wedding Particulars

A few steps from the lodge is the magnificently restored 19th century Lewis Grist Mill where a most delightful surprise awaits you:  a cuisine that rivals the finest restaurants in the largest cities. "There are no bounderies. I'm doing what I want to do with influences from all over," says Caryl Cowden of her contemporary American style cooking.  This vibrant mix of fresh tastes and interesting menus is enhanced by numerous side dishes comprised of vegetables just plucked from the farm's own gardens, fresh breads and sumptuous desserts that have developed a reputation of their own among inn-goers.

Rooms are spacious, and as you gaze out the windows you can see the vegetable garden, the river, and the mountains beyond.
