Costs: $100 +$115 - 200+tax/night for hotel & activities

This weekend will have more than enough twisty roads to open our engines up while enjoying the cool mountain air.  We promise more and better roads, and LOTS of great driving.  Having done the big properties over the last 10 years, your tour guide Alex Lunsford is shifting gears (so to speak) and targeting more intimate and more quirky properties in his trips going forward.

This one is his favorite in Bath County, VA.  The Inn at Gristmill Square is a locally-owned boutique Inn with only 15 rooms available.  Prices are very reasonable from $115/night up to $200/night for a bedroom suite.  Fabulous dining in a unique setting (you have to see it) and 10 steps away, the Simon Kenton Pub which is an intimate bar hidden within the Waterwheel Restaurant.  See the Inn at Gristmill Square: http://www.gristmillsquare.com/

And the Inn is just 15 mins down the road from the Homestead Resort which offers tons of additional amenities including The Jefferson pools, spas, dancing, several bars, golf, and even falconry.

The schedule includes departure from Haymarket, VA on Friday morning, July 8 at 10 am, taking the scenic back roads to Warm Springs, VA. We will stop in Staunton, VA for lunch for the best barbeque you will ever have, about 2.5 hours away.  We have dinner reservations at the Inn and then cocktails afterwards.

We will start Saturday about 9 am and drive for about 3 hours to lunch. After a leisurely lunch, we will likely hit spots including: Green Bank, WV (home of the NRAO Byrd telescope – the largest moving land thing on Earth), Cass Railroad Depot, Snowshoe, WV, The Greenbrier River, WV’s “Highway in the Clouds”, and whatever we feel like.  We try to stop every 60 mins for bio breaks and for awesome photo opps as they happen.  Or we just drive.  We will return Sat after noon by about 5 and then will likely have dinner in Warm Springs, VA in a place TBD.

Registration for this event is through MotorsportReg and is $100 per person, excluding children. The registration fee covers the cost of a commemorative item for each member, the band, and any appetizers and bartending for the cash bar for the social event Saturday night. 

Upon registration at MotorsportReg, you may book your room at the Inn at Gristmill Square room at the $115 - 200 / night rates established just for this event. Please tell them you are with Porsche PCA.  ONLY 15 ROOMS – IT WILL SELL OUT FAST.  As we get closer to event time, I will send out a more detailed agenda and maps for the group drives.

Great cars, great roads, great fun and all with great people! Please join us for an event you’ll talk about for years to come and more importantly meet fellow car enthusiasts and make new friends.

Everything else is a la carte.  NOTE THE FRIDAY GROUP DINNER AT THE INN AT GRISTMILL WILL BE ONE GROUP CHECK WHICH WILL BE DIVIDED EVENLY AND CHARGED TO YOUR ROOM.  They don’t do separate checks for a group our size.  So eat your fair share.
