Blue Ridge Parkway Road Trip
1 Martha Washington Inn
Try the delicious grilled cheese on buttermilk bread served at the Country Storeâ€™s lunch counter. If you happen to be there on a Sunday, donâ€™t miss the brunch, which verges on gluttony: eggs Benedict, shrimp and oysters, stands of prime rib, and omelettes.
2 Floyd Country Store
Floyd might have a lunch counter, but itâ€™s best known for its music: Friday nights at the Floyd Country Store, a â€œjamboreeâ€
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.
