Overnight Spring Tour

Start Location: Cracker Barrel, Manassas, VA

It may not be too late to join us for our six-hour caravan through Virginia and West Virginia, on all paved roads that are seldom traveled, to our destination in Monterey, Virginia. We will head out on our journey promptly at 9:30 A.M. There is a planned stop for a light lunch at the Shenvallee Golf Resort Restaurant in New Market, Virginia. We will then depart from there to our host lodging, The Highland Inn, which has 18 beautifully appointed guest rooms reserved just for us. All the rooms have been individually decorated with antiques and collectibles, and they each have their own private bath, cable television, but no phone! Guests are welcome to use the parlor or relax on the porches, which run the full length of both the first and second floors of the Inn.
After settling in, we will gather for dinner at 7:00 P.M. in the Monterey Dining Room, which is located at the Inn; dinner is limited to 50 people. The next morning, a complimentary continental breakfast will be served to all Inn guests in the Black Sheep Tavern, also located at the Inn, from 7:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. Sunday morning.
