Gather ‘Round the Fire
Snowboarding in Bath Va
Cabin at Fort Lewis Lodge
When winter arrives and blankets the mountains in a layer of white, Bath County becomes more peaceful than ever. Some even say it’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s certainly a great time for a romantic getaway to a resort or a charming B&B inn where you can relax in front of a crackling fire. During the day, enjoy skiing and snowboarding at The Omni Homestead, or try cross country skiing or snowshoeing on the trails all around the county, including at Douthat State Park and around Lake Moomaw.
