STAYCATION (COVID – 19 UPDATE BLOG)

After spending months indoors, at home due to the pandemic, many folks just need to get away for a break.  While tempting, our concerns are valid in not desiring crowded beaches, or popular and densely populated vacation spots.  Try to find a vacation experience that meets the requirements of a  break that provides exploration, relaxation and importantly, safety. 

The mountains of Southwest Virginia are a wonderful balance of beauty, natural surroundings, activities outdoors and less crowds. Whether floating down the New River, biking along the New River Trail or hiking along the Appalachian Trail, or wandering along waterfalls and experiencing 360 degree vistas.  Virginia is for Lovers for a reason!

The Inn at Riverbend provides a small, intimate setting that ensures a healthy and safe experience in a luxurious Select Registry boutique inn   Staff disinfects shared space daily, provides distancing and staggered breakfasts when necessary for spaced dining.  The decks have access directly from each room and outside furnishings are also cleansed daily.  For other meal options, our local restaurants offer take out and some deliver to the Inn. Those open are providing excellent safety practices.  

While we want you to feel safe, we also want you to relax and enjoy this amazing and diverse area. We still provide local expertise and guidance.  We know the best times to hike or where to take a refreshing float on the river.  Want a fishing guide?  We have the inside scoop! Off the beaten track bike ride or walk in the woods?   Of course, one of our beliefs is that the hardest things to do is nothing, so we also respect your privacy and desire for solitude or relaxation.

Some changes we have implemented to keep our building ultra clean is to impose a two-night minimum stay.  This allows us to concentrate more fully on hygiene standards, making sure we meet your expectations.  Our Inn has always taken cleanliness to a superior level but we have added daily practices to disinfect all surfaces that come in contact with staff and/or guests.  Once a guest checks in, we do not enter their rooms but provide amenities upon request.  

We encourage you to visit Southwest Virginia where you can explore closer to home, engage in physically challenging experiences, relax, refresh and renew and take that much needed SAFE-CATION!  See you soon!
