A Year in the Shenandoah Valley at Meadowlark Ridge B&B

Check out Jaimi & Ryan's highlights of hosting and exploring the Shenandoah Valley

Exceptional nature to explore

Just about one year ago Ryan and I moved to the Shenandoah Valley, specifically to Mount Solon, Virginia to manage Meadowlark Ridge Bed and Breakfast. We excitedly moved and began exploring the George Washington National Forest and the surrounding areas. Some of our favorite places include but are not limited to Elkhorn Lake, Augusta Wetlands Springs Park, and Paul State Forest.

Amazing and diverse wildlife all around . . .

Every month throughout this year, as Ryan and I explored the yard and the grounds of Meadowlark Ridge, we were able to experience wildlife to its fullest. We saw countless varieties of birds, various animals, insects, rodents, reptiles etc. The vast amount of experiences we observed and had with the wildlife of the area was spectacular!!

Diverse and Exceptional Guests . . .

Ryan and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the many guests we hosted here at Meadowlark Ridge Bed and Breakfast. This is the part we will miss the most about the bed and breakfast – just how diverse and wonderful the guests have been. We have had guests from all walks of life, some starting their relationships by getting engaged during their stay, to guests celebrating their 60 years of marriage, and everything in between. Our reviews on Google and Tripadvisor definitely paint a picture of our guest interactions and we made some friends along the way.

And our experience comes to its end . . .

Ryan and I have lived the nomadic lifestyle for many years before we arrived in Virginia. We enjoy traveling immensely and usually glean a remote, nature-focused setting to explore while working. Although Meadowlark Ridge in the Shenandoah Valley certainly imprinted its beauty on us, we have decided to continue our nomadic lifestyle and will be moving this month out west to Colorado.
