The weather has gotten decidedly colder here! Today we received our very first snowfall of the season. This is definitely the time to cozy up to the fireplace and enjoy the warmth of the fire. Did you know there are plenty of winter activities in the region? Wintergreen offers plenty of skiing and snow tubing and Charlottesville has its own ice park which is open for public skating. Or, if skating isn't your thing, enjoy an ice hockey game; both UVA and JMU utilize this facility for their ice sports. As for the Innkeepers, we spend our winter months doing repairs and freshening up the paint and bathrooms in the Inn. All must be done before the busy season arrives again in just a couple of months.
