Daily deal: Taking flight in Virginia wine country
The Hummingbird Inn, in Goshen, Virginia.
A long winter can certainly ruffle your feathers, but it's finally time to leave the nest with today's nectar-sweet getaway to Virginia's Hummingbird Inn. Take flight to the scenic Goshen Pass on the western edge of the Shenandoah Valley where you'll find one of two chirp-worthy packages.
Choose the luxurious Lexington Experience that includes two nights at the historic inn for two, breakfast, wine and cheese hors d'oeuvres one night, a dinner for two, a house tour of Civil War legend Stonewall Jackson's nearby home, a $20 gift certificate to use at the local Rockbridge Vineyard, and $7 good toward a treat at Barb's Bakery, all for just $241.
Or, add a few more feathers to your plumage with the Staunton Experience, which offers the same experience in addition to two tickets to a performance at the acclaimed Blackfriars Playhouse at the American Shakespeare Center (a $70 value) instead of the Jackson House tour, and $7 to use toward the 18 flavours of deliciousness at the Split Banana ice cream and gelato shop instead of Barbs, all for $268.
See what everybody's squawking about when you explore the old country charm of the Lexington, Staunton and Warm Springs region. Mobil Travel Guide gave the circa 1780 B&B three stars, and you'll see why as you unwind on two stories of wraparound verandas, whirlpool tubs, original pine floors and a working stone fireplace.
With the Staunton experience, flock over to Zynodoa Restaurant with a $50 gift certificate for farm-to-fork fine dining that captures the flavours of the season. Or, try flights of a different kind when you choose the Lexington experience and receive a $50 gift certificate to use at brix° wine bar.
Migrate to an escape that will really let you spread your wings. Who says flying south is only for the winter?
