“THE TWISTY BUSINESS TOUR”
This is our 4th trip around the Homestead and promises to be our best yet! We will leave Friday, Sept 6 about 10 am from Haymarket and drive mostly back roads to the Homestead by way of the Shenandoah National Park, Luray, Bridgewater, and Churchville. We will have a great lunch at the Depot Grill in Staunton. Then 2 more hours of fun on Route 250 west over to McDowell, VA and a run south to link up to Route 39 for the run over Warm Springs Mountain. We should arrive by about 530 pm to the Homestead just in time for Happy hour and then late reservations at Sam Snead’s Tavern. We will plan a group dinner both nights for those who want to attend. Drinks and dancing are available in several pubs and clubs after if interested.
The Homestead is absolutely fabulous with all kinds of ways to have fun- pools, tennis, world-renowned golf, horses and carriages, shooting, falconry (yes falconry), bowling, and wonderful meals from casual to very dressy.
It’s one of Virginia’s finest properties and a place everyone should see- made even better with a group of friends. It is also one of the best resorts in America for kids so feel free to bring them. And at $189 / night for a nice room it’s a great deal. Plus suites up to the Sybaritic are available for extra fees.
On Saturday morning we are planning a group drive for about 2 and a half hours (with breaks) over the best roads of Pocahontas County, WV arriving at the Greenbrier Resort about 12:30 pm. Next we have a great lunch planned followed by a private tour of the Greenbrier’s exclusive Cold War-era Congressional Underground Bunker. http://www.greenbrier.com/Activities/The-Bunker/Bunker-Tours.aspx
We should have an hour afterwards to tour the Greenbrier to see if we want to host the 2014 tour at the Greenbrier instead. We will depart the Greenbrier about 5 and arrive back the Homestead by 6. At 7 we have a local Bluegrass Band, Route 220 South, playing outside for us and to accompany an outdoor BBQ dinner next to the firepit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-0GP5gLP88 . Drinks and dancing are available in several pubs and clubs after if interested. Sunday is a free day so you may do anything and leave any time you like however you wish.
