Wonderful B & B!

We had a wonderful 2 night stay here at Llewellyn Lodge. John was a wonderful host . He cooks great breakfasts, from a menu. It was really nice to have a choice. The room was large and comfortable. The bed was amazing. They have special high end mattresses, unlike any other B&B we have been too.

OCT 1, 1, 2018- Excellent Levels for H2O enjoyment NOW.  This is one great month to plan a float down the Maury or James Rivers or both with stunning Fall foliage.We have the Allegheny  Mountain watersheds to our West and the Blue Ridge Mountain watersheds to our East. The Maury cuts  its way through Goshen Pass Northwest of town 14 miles where there is some significant elevation change and more whitewater challenge for canoe and kayak folks. Summer flows can get low but you can always find a swimming hole or tubing section. The Maury makes it way through the small town of Buena Vista and then another several miles to the much larger James River in Glasgow. The James has lots more drainage area and has floatable water year round.  The area below the confluence of the 2 rivers is known as Balcony Falls and requires a bit more skill to navigate as you make your way through fairly remote gorge area 5 -6 miles long.

GUIDED FLYFISHING 1-800-882-1145

Twin Rivers Canoe and Wilderness Canoe Company offer trips from April throu October.   Many fantastic trips are detailed on their websites.  Both are within a 20 minute drive from the Lodge.  Guided fishing for bass is also offered. Tubing in trips are also offered along both the very scenic  Maury and James Rivers. 

Lake Robertson is a state of Virginia managed lake that offers boat rentals 14 miles from Lexington. The Lake has given up a few large mouth bass over 10 pounds. There is a swimming pool there as well with lots places to picnic.

Goshen Pass is a great place to go take an old fashion swim in the warmer months.  Take a picnic lunch the streamside tables. Cave Mountain Lake in the Jefferson National Forest southwest of Lexington also offers swimming and hiking, the small lake has a beach and usually does not have pressure as other swimming spots.

Great place for a weekend with friends!

Stayed at the LLewellyn Lodge during a reunion weekend. We had five rooms for alums and our wives. Great service, great food, great location, great accommodations, and great space for hanging out in a group setting. If you have the chance to stay here, do it! All of us definitely would again.

Very Congenial Place To Stay!

I phoned at last minute; there was a room for me for the night. John greeted me warmly, oriented me to the house and the routines. He had helpful suggestions re places in town and also for my planned route the next day. Breakfast was lovely, and I was on my way to the next stop. I would definitely stay there again if I'm in the area.

Reservations are suggested and for most weekends recommended. A two (2) night minimum that includes a Saturday night is required during the months of May, October and certain or high activity weekends during the year.  A one night's deposit is required to hold your reservation by the date specified on your confirmation sheet.  The confirmation will be mailed to you once the reservation is made. We will accept a credit card number as a deposit. A check deposit is required over certain peak weekends in May or October. A $25 fee will be charged on any returned checks.


We require a deposit by credit card, check or cash to reserve our rooms. The deposit will be forfeited if the guest arrives after the date specified or departs before the final date of the reservation. Over certain college or special event weekends our cancellation policy may vary. Should you no-show or cancel under the stated 7, 14 or 45,  day policy (noted at time of booking), your deposit will be forfeited unless the room can be re-rented for that period. It must be understood that a deposit insures that your accommodations will be available as confirmed and also insures the Lodge that the accommodations are sold as confirmed. Therefore, when situations arise that necessitate a cancellation less than 7  ,14  or 45 days  (noted at time of booking and mailed with confirmation) in advance of your confirmed stay, we most certainly do sympathize but must maintain a business policy. Certain peak weekends have a 45 day notice requirement which will be noted at the time of booking and so stated in any confirmation mailing. E-mail cancellations cannot be accepted; please telephone if you need to cancel 1-800-882-1145, 1-540-463-3235.
