RELAXING & SWIMMING IN OUR POOL
For those not wanting to go anywhere there is the option to sit by the pool and relax. We have recently put in a new liner and stained all the decks a lovely dark brown that enhances the trees, scrubs and wildlife. You can lounge on one of the lounging chairs/beds or sit at one of the tables & chairs while maybe sipping on a nice cool glass of white wine or a cold beer, relaxing in the Blacksburg Summer heat! We also have a Yoga deck where you can do some yoga under the trees for stress-reduction.
