Are you looking to reconnect with nature and unplug from your devices? Follow our 3-day, 2-night itinerary to reconnect with each other while embracing nature in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley:

A view of Elkhorn Lake from a kayaker's perspective.

Day 1: Arrive at Meadowlark Ridge Bed and Breakfast to a warm welcome. After settling in to your room and exploring the house, set off for a short but beautiful drive to Elkhorn Lake in the George Washington National Forest.

A side view of the Natural Chimneys limestone formations.



After an amazing and fulfilling breakfast, head over to Natural Chimneys Park. Hike the trail to the top for a different perspective of the valley and the top of the limestone chimneys. Be sure to check out the Civil War era Jousting arena at the base.
