Go hot air ballooning! (Launch usually within 20 minutes.) Watch the sunrise as you prepare to see the Virginia countryside from the basket of a hot air balloon. Check our Activities section for the list of local Hot Air Balloon Companies. You’ll be back at the Inn in time for breakfast. After breakfast take a swim and relax by the pool. Hike the property. Take a steam. Spend the afternoon antiquing in Ruckersville. Stop at Jack’s Shop Kitchen for lunch if hunger strikes. Or visit the Potter’s Studios (Suzanne Crane/Mud Dauber, Blue Ridge Pottery) in the area. Or travel up the Blue Ridge Mountains to Stone Mountain Vineyard for more spectacular views and great wine. Feel like a great unpretentious hamburger for dinner? Try Riverside North, the local outpost of a Charlottesville tradition. Or feel like Sushi? Try Sakura Japanese Steakhouse.
