Weekend Getaways

Paddling the Shenandoah River

1 Shenandoah River Outfitters

The outfitter has everything you need to paddle into the wilderness. For a lazier way to keep cool, try a three-to-five-hour tubing trip. Chow down on char-grilled steaks over an open campfire after your day on the river (part of a dinner-and-canoe package). Drift off to the sounds of nature in one of the secluded riverfront cabins (sleeping up to six people, most have private hot tubs and decks with a river view).

2 Farmhouse Restaurant at Jordan Hollow Inn

Head to this dining hall, housed in a restored 1700s cabin, for tender quail and grilled apples paired with Virginia wines and microbrews.

3 Shenandoah River Outfitters’ Cabins

Drift off to sounds of nature in one of the Outfitters’ secluded riverfront cabins that sleep six; most have private hot tubs and decks with water views. Sign up for the dinner-and-canoe package and chow down on steaks char-grilled by an open campfire.
