The Basics

Family-owned for over 30 years, Fort Lewis is also a working farm, where produce is grown and the pastureland is used for grass-fed cattle. Your stay includes a seasonally-inspired breakfast and dinner.

Guest Reviews

“A Gold Nugget” We had a recent stay at Fort Lewis Lodge & Farm. It exceeded our expectations!! John and Caryl have created a masterful place for guests to stay and enjoy nature all around. John is a farmer with intentions to better all the land and cattle he takes care of. He's also a craftsman as reflected in our mahogany headboard, and the many cabins he has built...See More

Sad we had to leave, can't wait to go back! It's the "Yellowstone Ranch of Virginia" in my opinion. Only a few hours from northern VA, but feels a world away in unspoiled nature. There are stunning scenic views, great food, friendly staff and beautiful rooms on a working cattle farm. Truly a place where you can disconnect for the better.

We just finished our 3rd trip to Fort Lewis. It was amazing. If you want to get away and relax, Fort Lewis is just the place. The grounds are beautiful, lots of walking trails and a beautiful river to swim in, fish or even kayak in.Some of my favorite things to do are to visit the cows, go birding, or sit by the crackling fire. The rooms are beautiful...See More

Absolutely beautiful setting to just relax for a couple days. They provide breakfast and dinner each day and the food is phenomenal. The sauna by the river is a must rent as it's a perfect setting, with river access right outside to cool off. Cell service is there now, but limited, and wifi is also provided for those that need to stay connected.

- Jared Davis

We absolutely love coming here every year! The staff is amazing, food is amazing, atmosphere is amazing, everything about Fort Lewis Lodge is amazing! We especially love how accommodating everyone was to our big family, (The Albrights). We shall return! Thank you guys!
