Enjoy our complimentary signature breakfast each morning. Pick and choose from eggs to order, Belgium Waffles, omelets, and a large selection of buffet-style items including everything from fresh fruit and granola to yogurt and cheeses.
Relax with a cup of coffee or cookie while warming up by the stone wood-burning fireplace. It is the perfect place to meet with other guests to share stories or play a classic board game with your family.
Small weddings and gatherings of around 40-50 people can be hosted in our Ballroom. Ornately decorated walls and columns can be the perfect back drop to any special event. It can also be arranged for business meetings, lectures or corporate retreats.
Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean that you have to give up the exercise routine you have worked so hard to establish, or perhaps you could take this opportunity to start a new regimen that will improve your future health.
Relax in the true lap of luxury in the Fenton Inn’s spa room. The ornate octagonal room is the perfect location for a soothing massage from professionally trained masseurs. Draw the blinds, close your eyes, and let go of life’s burdens with therapeutic couples massage, or recover from a particularly thrilling day on the slopes with a solo deep-tissue massage. Please call at least one week in advance to schedule a masseuse for the particular date and time that works for your vacation.
Main Street and Town Square:
Enjoy breakfast at a Bistro-style table on Main Street and watch the people go walking past, or read a newspaper near the clock tower. The cobblestone street and medieval village houses will make you think you are in Europe. The Town Square offers sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and romantic flower-covered columns can make the perfect outdoor location for weddings or gatherings.
Movie night goes big in the village’s own movie theater. Catch a movie on our large projection screen while relaxing on a comfy couch.
Please ask about a private showing for you and yours or a whole group! Individual accommodations will be met if possible.
Take a hike from your room:
The Appalachian Trail is just half a mile from our front door. Slip on your favorite hiking boots, grab a walking stick, and set out for adventure. Order a special Fenton Inn picnic lunch to enjoy on your walk or at surrounding attractions. 48-hour notice is required so we have enough time to make your lunch perfectly delicious!
Will grew up near Albany, New York and spent summers hiking in the Adirondack Mountains. He graduated from the University of Arizona with studies in Architecture and Finance. Returning to New York, he studied historic restoration and worked on some notable historic Dutch homes in the Hudson Valley. Following his passion for history, he moved to Virginia to work at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. From there he was recruited to Jefferson’s summer home, Poplar Forest, which was a complete rebuild following Jefferson’s original letters. Will worked at many other museums, including Robert E. Lee’s birthplace, Stratford Hall, Yorktown, Colonial Williamsburg, etc. Ever drawn to the mountains, he would spend his time off biking the Blue Ridge Parkway or hiking along the Appalachian Trail. His favorite day hike was to go up Three Ridges from Reid’s Gap, and then one day he noticed a sign for land for sale with a view of his favorite mountain. This is where he built his house and later, the Fenton Inn.
Lilia grew up in Crimea, on the Black Sea Coast. Her father was a doctor and they lived in an elegant castle-looking home in a summer beach town. Lilia attended medical school in Simferopol and received her doctor degree in medicine. Crimea is an area rich in history and filled with castles and it was here that Will and Lilia’s fairytale began. But that is another story, one of many we can continue by the fireplace in our Lobby.
See you soon!
