Poplar Room at the Fenton Inn

If you ever thought to have a room with a balcony looking over an old world village, then this is the room for you.The balcony is a perfect spot to recite some Shakespeare or address the people below, or just take in the views of village life and watch the sun set as it lights up the clock tower before fading over the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Inside, the Poplar room is a spacious room with vaulted ceilings and two queen sized beds. Locally sourced maple flooring gives warm colors as does the Poplar trim that was all cut from within 50 feet of where it still stands.  We milled all the lumber on site and air dried it during construction.
