Weekend Getaways

Blue Ridge Parkway Road Trip

1 Martha Washington Inn

Try the delicious grilled cheese on buttermilk bread served at the Country Store’s lunch counter. If you happen to be there on a Sunday, don’t miss the brunch, which verges on gluttony: eggs Benedict, shrimp and oysters, stands of prime rib, and omelettes.

2 Floyd Country Store

3 Sweet Providence Farm Market & Bakery

The red-roofed log-cabin store sits on the crest of a steep hill. Its porch (in the Fall) is strewn with pumpkins and features a cider press. Elsewhere on the property apple butter boils in a copper kettle hung over a wood fire.

4 Miracle Farm Spa

Slumber in good conscience at the certified-green B&B, tucked in the hills near Floyd. The homey farmhouse has views of the garden and the rolling landscape beyond.
