For those not wanting to go anywhere there is the option to sit by the pool and gardens to 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 and a ZenGarden.

Originally constructed in 1929 and opened on April 17, 1930, the Lyric Theatre is a blend of Art Deco and Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, designed by Roanoke architect Louis Phillipe Smithey. Most notable on the Lyric's faade are the traditional Comedy and Tragedy masks.
