Weekend Getaway - Keswick Hall

My husband and I had a lovely getaway over the weekend at Keswick Hall, a hotel just outside Charlottesville at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The weather was absolutely perfect. It was warm and sunny, without any humidity or bugs. We do not get a lot of days like that around here. The two hour drive south through the Virginia hunt country was gorgeous with the trees and flowers blooming and the grass bright green like in a post card. We walked the grounds, had a drink on the terrace and then enjoyed a fabulous meal at Fossett’s, the hotel restaurant. It was one of the best meals I have had in Virginia with fresh ingredients prepared to perfection. Our table was next to a wall of windows with a beautiful view while it was light out and then the atmosphere turned incredibly romantic as it grew dark. This was the perfect place for a romantic getaway.
