Fort Lewis Lodge & Farm is a country escape set on a 3,365-acre estate in the mountains of Virginia. Our twenty-one distinctive accommodations offer a rare mix of unpretentious elegance and unique architecture where every room has a view. Your stay is highlighted by a seasonally-inspired breakfast and dinner served in the historic Lewis Gristmill followed by a fire in our timber-framed pavilion in the evenings. Outdoor activities abound with hiking, biking, fly fishing, canoeing or simply relaxing by the pristine swimming hole. Family owned for over 30 years, Fort Lewis is also a working farm, where fresh produce is grown on property, chickens and pigs are raised, and the pastureland is used for a grass fed cattle herd. Dinner and breakfast are included with your stay.
